Coming Soon from Nozomi/RightStuf and Viki.com – Rose of Versailles

September 12th, 2012

Nozomi/RightStuf and Viki.com, the online streaming site that carries Riyoko Ikeda’s “Dear Brother”) have jointly announced the licensing of Ikeda’s classic tale of the French Revolution, Rose of Versailles.

RightStuf’s Coming Soon Page for RoV includes links to the trailer and a button to submit questions to Riyoko Ikeda, to be answered by the legendary artist herself.

Viki.com is premiering the opening episode at New York Comic-Com on October 13, followed by a Q&A session with Prof. Susan Napier. (I’ve already spoken with Prof. Napier and asked her a few questions written by myself, Katherine H. and Erin S. I’ll hope that she’ll have time to answer a few of them for us.)

What a decade the 2010’s are turning out to be, huh? ^_^

    I am quite stunningly gobsmacked by this news.
    Nozomi/RightStuf seem to make a habit of releasing things I never expected to get a DVD release, and this is going on my want list for next year.

  2. I’m still floored by this news. I’m thrilled to see the RoV anime make it here and love Nozomi that much more as a result.

    And thank you again for submitting those questions Erin, you and I came up with!

  3. !’m with you, Katherine. It’s been the “Holy Grail” of anime for a long while. ^_^

    Huh, I mentioned a while back on the phone with someone from Viki that Rose of Versailles and Legend of the Galactic Heroes were two of the older series where an announcement would be guaranteed to make a splash.

    I hope that those in the twittersphere got Erica’s tweet reminding us to hit the #RoseofVersailles hashtag.

  5. @Bruce_McF Legend would be nice this years, as there’ll be a Takarazuka of that series as well. ^_^v

    I’m still trying to pick my jaw up off the floor after Nozomi/RightStuf announced Aoi Hana, and now they’re doing Rose of Versailles too??? I didn’t think it was possible to love Nozomi more than I did already, but clearly (and happily) I was wrong about that. ^_^

    In. Credible. And glorious.
