Versailles no Bara

The Rose of Versailles focuses on Oscar François de Jarjayes, a girl raised as a man to become her father's successor as leader of the Palace Guards. A brilliant combatant with a strong sense of justice, Oscar is proud of the life she leads, but becomes torn between class loyalty and her desire to help the impoverished as revolution brews among the oppressed lower class. Also important to the story are her conflicting desires to live life as both a militant and a regular woman as well as her relationships with Marie Antoinette, Count Axel von Fersen, and servant and best friend André Grandier.

Licensed versions of this manga have been published in Italian, French, German and Spanish.

I love Oscar. She is my idol. I would like to be as strong as her. You know life is not that easy and being able to be admitted to guys' world is a great achievement. I also love her character. As Andrea tells in the anime, "I love her because although she looks cold as ice on the outside, in the inside she is burning". Oscar is very passionate, she has a strong sense of justice, she can sacrifice herself for her beliefs and her beloved friends. She is very loyal, hardworking, decisive, smart. Maybe her only deficiency is not being able to accept her gender but thanks to Andrea, at the end she was finally able to understand herself. She was confused emotionally. It must be hard to be forced to live in the way your father dictated.

I cried a lot at the end of the manga but kind of loved the end. They made a movie of Lady Oscar and in the mıvie they changed the ending to a silly happy ending. That was just terribly disappointing. The mangaka stopped drawing manga after a while, and I could not find any other translated work of Ikeda Ryoko. If I could find them, I would really like to read them too.

I watched the anime when I was younger, it was really good. I expect no less from the manga! It is truly a lovely sad story.

there should be more chapters out there. It is pretty interesting even though the art style is a bit maybe 70's or 80's not sure. It looks like it will go somewhere good. I am very curious to see the rest since its been mentioned twice already in hana yori dango and Cat Street (both works by kamio youko XD) as somewhat of a classic and awesome read. wonder if there's any tragedy in there as welll....
