i was afraid this would happen, but the villain isn't even any different from du Barry.... i'm so disappointed, hopefully the story changes up somehow

please more Oscar! even when she shows up for a minute it makes everything better, i love her

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.

A new dark force has rise in the storyline.... And people thought du Barry was bad.

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.

Oh Lord. I didn't need du Barry 2.0

Rosalie, I hope luck smiles upon you very soon.

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!?
