The Rose of Versailles (Lady Oscar,Berusaiyu no Bara)

The Rose of Versailles (ベルサイユのばら, Berusaiyu no Bara?), also known as Lady Oscar, is one of the best-known titles in shōjo and a media franchise created by Riyoko Ikeda. The setting is in France, before and during the French Revolution. The main character is a woman named Oscar François de Jarjayes. Her father, General Jarjayes, despaired over never getting a son (he had six daughters), and decided to raise his youngest daughter as a man. He trained her well in the arts of fencing, horsemanship, and medieval combat. Oscar often practiced her skills with her best friend, companion and (technically) servant, André Grandier, whom she almost always defeated. André was the grandson of her nanny and thus they spent most of their time together in harmonic friendship; near the end of the story, this blossomed into mutual love. <!--link--><a href=""><img src="" border="0"></a>

I agree with you. Rose of Versailles is masterpiece. I can watch it over and over. <3

The Rose of Versailles really deserves a larger fanbase. I wish people would be more open-minded about older works. :c

I forgot to properly thank you all for Lady Oscar's victory in ISML Exhibition match. ISML, is not purely about Moe. How can it, if it has Nakajima Yoko from 12 Kingdoms in its Latest Exhibition match?

true, although there are still gems like Claymore. :3

Moé is the new plague, and what makes matters even worse is that it sells as well as hentai, which may explain the serious lack in strong-welled heroines with original backgrounds and believable characterization in nowadays's animes.

God, I hate moe. I even joined an anti moe and loli club because I got sick of all the meek and submissive moe girls in anime. We should have more characters like Lady Oscar. <3

Thanks for the head-up!

I like Candice from Candy Candy, but she in no way compares to our lady Oscar X3

*Grimace at the rest of the ballot*

Why every year there has to be a flood of moé in these kinds of competition is beyond me. And why the hell isn't Celty (Durarara!!), Mayumi (Kuchuu Buranko) and Saki (Eden of the East) aren't in there while every character from an oudated junk like Clannad is?

Hello, This is maglor who happened to be someone responsible for getting Oscar into ISML exhibition match ( please see for more details ). There seems to be serious misconception about our Lady Oscar and I desperately need your help to rectify them. Please consider posting any good pictures of Lady Oscar you have at any website that will allow it. We need to expose the net to good images of Lady Oscar as much as possible in hopes that it will receive enough attention to achieve positive changes. Please consider helping out for the next 24 hours, for practically, that is how much time left for us. I thank you in advance.
