Rose of Versailles

Rose of VersaillesMost old anime is overrated crap worshiped by nostalgia-glasses wearing manchilds. I’m glad to report Rose of Versailles is not one of those, as I’ve seen it in late 2000s and blows most of the modern (if not all) stuff out of the water. What a fascinating historical tale. Why aren’t they making more stuff like this?

Positive: Negative:
Fascinating French Revolution setting The first half is pretty underwhelming
Tasteful historical atmosphere
Interesting, profound, likable characters
Captivating plot full of twists toward the end
Story of the second half is amazing
Full of dramatic scenes
Enlightening on history
Thought-provoking on society
