When the acclaimed manga Rose of Versailles was set to get an anime adaptation, it was a given that someone would try to match it in regards of subject matter and theme, and so we got Isabelle of Paris. Both shows came out in 1979, both have a female lead who is good with a sword and looks good in a (male) military uniform, both have lots of melodrama as the world burns, and both use revolutionary Paris as their location, just for Versailles it's 1789 and for Isabelle it's 1870. Both even feature a vigilante figure wearing a domino mask.
