Never heard of it. The art and age seem a bit too outdated for me but seeing the high ratings I may check it out.

Congrats to the fans for this!

Says the person who has seen several eechi series and shonen junk food and gives them a 10.

I weep for the future.

Thankfully I have taste & class.

Try going for seinen, shojo and josei. You'll thank me later.

Now, if I was actually living in the US, I would probably be buying it right now, because it's Rose of Versailles. But I am not, so...

Draconis didn't even say anything against it being old, just that it was old. Also assuming that someone likes a show because of their visuals only is just stupid. For all you know they weren't talking about the old artstyle, just the year it came out. -___-

Oh yeah, fuck other peoples' tastes, they shouldn't like ecchi anime and should only watch the old classics and genre that I do, because it's so much better and my tastes are superior.

Please, stop.

Well, I'm pleasantly surprised.

Though, it only took 3 decades for a licensing company to recognize its greatness.

I'm definitely buying it.

Plus AFAIK there is already some translation availible so less work for the producers.
And LOGH... 110 episodes: making script, hiring VA (if they would go into this area) - that would be madness and probably not even that profitable, compared to cost of making it.

Rightstuf doesn't dub any of their series so it will be subbed only.

I am truly happy that a masterpiece such as The Rose of Versailles is licensed at long last and will be released on DVD, I truly enjoyed watching the series and I came to love ROV. I'll definitely be getting this series on DVD when it comes out! Many thanks RightStuf/Nozomi for acquiring such a fantastic anime! ^___^

Pretty damn awesome. It's such a great show if you aren't too sensitive to effective melodrama and glitter.

You could watch that five-minute dubbed clip of eps. 51 & 52 five-hundred times and pretend they dubbed the entire series.

Wonderful news!

Although, it's too bad about the limited edition dvd release. Maybe they'll print more if the demand is there.. Anyhow, this will be a perfect excuse for a rewatch of my favorite series, and a good opportunity to introduce the show to some people.

True that, but one should not disregard the fact that LoGH's got much more potential than most shit that get licensed out there; not specifically aiming at Right Stuf. Hell, I wonder sometimes how brilliant it would've been if LoGH had been licensed right there and then, the period it was already in the making; west, at least western animation fans, would've been totally into the epicness had it been aired at some Adult Swim or something. Not to mention, LoGH, then, would've had a much larger fanbase than now.

Nah, subs are enough. Plus, I have this hunch they wouldn't be able to match the intensity in English dubs; not to mention the fact that Right Stuf doesn't dub.

An epic announcement! I never thought in my wildest dreams that someone will release RoV in English. Hope this follows with Onii-sama e and someone licensing Orpheus no Mado manga.

My life needs classics! I've watched Lady Oscar like twice in my childhood, I don't think I remember everything about it.
I will try my best to get my hands on the box-sets when they'll be available even if they will cost a fortune!

Rightstuf doesn't dub any of their series so it will be subbed only.

It's not never, though it is rare. They have titles like Kare Kano, Irresponsible Captain Tylor, Boogiepop Phantom, Shingu, etc. which feature dubs.

So, most likely it won't get a dub, but it's not impossible.

EDIT: Eh, sorry, strike that. I just found this line in their press release.

"It is an honor and privilege to bring this beloved series to DVD, via Nozomi
Entertainment, and work with TMS and Viki to introduce our English-subtitled translation of the anime inspired by Ms. Ikeda’s masterwork to North American fans. ”
