  • An unforgettable classic!
    I saw the first 20 episodes some ten years ago, and I remember wanting to see the rest so badly and having to wait months inbetween. When I revisisted the show after that hiatus, my enthusiasm for it hadn't dimmed, of anything it only grew stronger. The plotline and storytelling in Rose of Versailles is very strong and it's easy to get sucked in. Dazzling presentation all around, a diverse and ...

  • Nostalgic, a great example of why we watch anime in the first place.
    i don't usually dish out fives, but The Rose of Versailles earned it. it has everything, action, danger, romance, evolving characters, and genuine emotion. Oscar is readily likable and interesting as a lead. a beautiful rose surrounded by the corruption of the royal court. a brief synopsis reads as General Jarjayes - so desperate for a son to preserve the family name and noble standing - names ...

  • I feel in love with Oscar
    I really like this show. I watched all the episodes and I could not stop watching. Wish there was more to this. I loved how the story line followed a historical event. When I would google the characters they would come up. It is a while to watch and I would recommend it to anyone.

  • If you want to be spellbound..
    then please, watch this!! i'm usually really picky when it comes to anime, especially more current anime in general. rose of versailles is compelling, super dramatic and filled with fictional elements that mix in SO well with the history of the french revolution (in my opinion) seriously, everything from the aesthetic down to the story line is so fun to watch, and if you're a fan of adult ...

    Believe the hype! Oscar!
    Rose of Versailles is an enduring classic for a reason. Oscar, the strong and beautiful heroine is character everyone can rally behind. The story is complex and heartbreaking and a must watch for shojo fans. The animation is old fashioned now but also so classic with the roses and sparkling tears!

    A True Classic and Masterpeice
    To say that this show is a classic that defined the genre for years to come would be putting it mildly. So much of the anime we know today comes from this show, which is itself an absolute delight, with its fictionalized account of France right before (and during) the revolution.

    Such an incredible and classic work.
    I have never loved an anime as much as this one. I loved how this work includes real historic events and even how they dramatize them. Of course this is old shojo, but there is a huge emphasis on the details of all of the nobility's dresses, uniforms, and even the living spaces and manors. The music is also very beautiful and the opening theme is one of the best I've heard. It certainly gets stuck ...

    I can't praise this one enough
    I know this is an older show and the artwork shows it but please do not let that stop you from diving into this and enjoying it. While at times it is overly dramatic the story is one of rare quality even in the anime world. Check it out. If you have seen and enjoyed this check out "Brother, Dear Brother".

    A classic! Beautiful artwork and a story-line that engages all ages!
    A must watch for any one who love Anime! I watched it in bits and pieces five years ago before I discovered Crunchyroll. If you have the membership which allows you to watch it here you MUST do so. Anime like this one, and others like Mako the Mermaid (Maho no Mako-chan (which is not here yet) and Candy Candy were the one that made me fall in love with Anime. European history, and fantasy mix to ...

    Such a wonderful classic anime
    Beautiful art, wonderful storyline, strong characters. I loved this anime when I first saw just a few episodes years ago and searched for a legitimate copy of it ever since. I'm so happy to find it here so that more people can see and enjoy this show which influenced so many others!
