THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
"A Beautiful Devil, Jeanne"

Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette are crowned King and Queen of France. Maximilian Robespierre, future leader of the French Revolution, reads them their congratulations. Jeanne has trained relentlessly to become a lady, but cannot enter Versailles because her guardian is not in favor at court. Having just been fired from her job due to the depression, an impoverished Rosalie begs her sister for help, but Jeanne manipulates Nicholas, a man in love with her, into attempting to kill Rosalie. Rosalie desperately attempts prostitution to get money; the first person she goes up to is Oscar, whom she mistakes for a man. Oscar gives her one gold livre for free, and wonders just how bad the conditions in France truly are. Jeanne and Nicholas kill her guardian and forge Marquise Brandvillier's will so they inherit all of her property. Oscar meets them for the first time during the funeral and suspects foul play. summary courtesy of Wikipedia

Oh no, just as DuBarry falls another one begins to rise to take her place. I knew this girl was trouble, but once she gets the basic tools she needs she is off to a running start! To attempt to have your man beat your own sister! And then to kill the woman who took you in a take everything she had....

The only nice thing about the ep was Rosalie attempting to sell herself to Oscar of all people. I would have laughed too. Glad Rosalie kept her dignity, at least.

Rosalie needs to stay away from the middle of the road, always getting run over by carriages.

So we lost one du Barry and gained another?
and poor Rosalie, she's clearly the only one of Valois lineage.
(I had wondered why they had dif hair when they were introduced)
gosh but Jeanne turned into a real witch!
cant wait till she gets what's coming to her!

Jeanne may rise to be my favorite antagonist here, she's just so ambitious and evil.

Rosalie on the other hand should get her shit together. She shouldve asked Oscar to take her with her. But we definitely will see more of her in the future I assume.

Listen, everybody wants change, don't nobody want to change though
don't nobody want to pray, till they got something to pray for
now everybody's gonna die, but don't everybody live though

Jeanne deserves to get whipped, strangled and burnt alive. Pretty much everything she's done to all the people who were nice to her.

Don't talk to me about character development if Kaizuka Inaho or Slaine Troyard are in your favorites.

Just started watching this....and we go from one bitch in DuBarry to another in Jeanne.

Something tells me though that Oscar will save Rosalie in the future...

She definitely does make for a very "good villain". At least thus far, she is playing the role of the antagonist really well. I didn't expect her to be 1) such a good actress and 2) so heartless in reality. Yikes. Wonder how her story is going to clash with Antoinette's...

This so much!

Oscar is a real sweetheart she gave Rosalie some money for medicine and food. I really hope we see more of her she is beautiful. I can't believe what Jeanne did to her that bitch.

Oh great, just as we lose Du Barry, we gain someone even worse.

Oscar's spider sense is top notch.

Jeanne makes Du Barry look nice. Seriously, how could you treat your own sister like that?

Well shit, didn't think anyone in this series could top du Barry. Well besides Duke Orleans but he is the main antagonist.

If he's dumb enough to get played in the first place I doubt he's ever gonna be able to realize he's getting played lol.

Two things concern me about Rose of Versailles so far.

The first is the pace which time passes. I'm actually starting to lose track of what's going on, as events occur between episodes which are merely narrated to us. Also, it's hard to tell if time has truly passed since the characters are drawn relatively the same. Small changes are made, especially with regard to how they're physically drawn, but it's so subtle that I often don't notice. Their demeanors hardly change, and the only reference the viewer seems to have is which scheme is currently going on. This could perhaps be a good thing as it requires attention and investment, but it also makes the anime feel rushed somehow.

Second is Oscar herself. She's an extremely enjoyable character thus far, but it took me a bit to figure out why. Now I think I get why: she's the most sane, detached, competent, and observant character in the show with both the physical prowess and oratory skills to back herself up. By default, that makes her the best character in the show thus far, although it's almost unfair. As a result, while I can say "Oscar is great," I'm unsure if it's a conclusion I came to myself, or if it was orchestrated by the show's writing.

You're LAUGHING, Oscar? I mean, yeah, that was kinda cute of you, but that scene was so sad >:

When Jeanne was ''helping'' her sister I tough that she would make a great ''gray'' character but nope, I hate the black&white shape of things in this series. Although that DID build up to Rosalie's character.

Oh, agree with that. Simply having dates on the screen would have helped, but I guess Oscar is 19 now?
I mean, she has the same age as Marie (born in 1755) and Louis XVI became king in 1774.

The sun sets, the sun rises
One bitch goes, another arises...

Jokes aside this was a brilliant episode and Jeanne is actually one of my fav characters from the show. Her rise to fame pretty much mirrors that of du Barry. Just what fame and money can do to you. Poor Rosalie. Her struggles were brilliantly portrayed. Wonder if Fersen helps her in any way, since they did meet once..

This episode was intense. Jeanne is a huge bitch, she's like next level du Barry. Oscar continues to be cooler than ever, she's the greatest.

I was expecting a lot from Jeanne,but this exceeded my expectations,she's quite the schemer and absolutely unscrupulous on top. Definitely an entertaining villain. Oscar already sensed the upcoming danger,this is going to be very interesting.

Poor Rosalie,tho :/
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

Só pude sentir odio pela Jeanne. Completamente obstinada a conseguir o que quer. A irmã dela...pobrezinha quase chegou ao extremo...Sorte que a maravilhosa Oscar apareceu. Aquele humor dela na parte em que é parada pela irmã da Jeanne foi demais!

This added a lot of depth to Oscar's character as well. She had no idea what was going on outside the life of wealth. She can judge as harshly as she wants, but Rosalie had no other choice. She got lucky. I wonder what's going to happen when Rosalie's money runs out again.

I really can't stand what Jeanne is doing. Taking advantage of someone's kindness and betraying them, that's the worst. But still when the mother implied that Rosalie was the better one it really pissed me off. Why does anime always show the older sibling to be evil and the younger to be good!?
