Cast and Staff

The film features Ai Yoshimura (Daily Lives of High School Boys, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU) as director at MAPPA. Tomoko Komparu (Ashita no Nadja, Uta no Prince-sama – Maji Love 1000%) writes the script, with Mariko Oka (First Love Monster, Hell Girl) designing the characters. Hiroyuki Sawano (Attack on Titan, Blue Exorcist) serves as the music producer alongside Kohta Yamamoto (Kaina of the Great Snow Sea, 86).


Story Synopsis

Oscar François de Jarjayes, raised as the “son” and heir of a general’s family, masquerades as a beautiful woman in men’s clothing. Marie Antoinette arrives from Austria as a bride, set to become a noble queen. Oscar’s servant and childhood friend, André Grandier, and the intelligent count Hans Axel von Fersen from Sweden all meet in the lavish court of Versailles during the prosperous late 18th Century, each navigating their destined paths amidst the changing tides of time.

Ikeda serialized The Rose of Versailles manga in Shueisha’s Weekly Margaret magazine from 1972 to 1973. The story unfolds in the intrigue-filled court of Queen Marie Antoinette before and during the French Revolution, where Lady Oscar, raised as a man, serves in the palace guards.

Udon Entertainment began releasing the manga in English in December 2019, completing it in five omnibus volumes. Discotek remastered the anime series in HD, with the release completing in April 2021 and June 2023.

Udon Entertainment began releasing the manga in English in December 2019, and has since released the entire manga in five omnibus volumes. Udon also released the The Rose of Versailles Episodes side story manga in 2023.

The manga inspired a 40-episode anime in 1979-1980 that Right Stuf released in North America in 2013 in two DVD sets. In addition to the television anime series, the manga inspired a 1990 animated film, a long-promised but unreleased animated film remake, perennial musicals by the all-female Takarazuka Revue since 1974, and a live-action 1978 French/Japanese film. More recently, DLE Inc. created authorized parody shorts with Flash animation. Discotek produced an HD remaster of the series, and the two-volume release shipped in April 2021 and on June 29.

The manga is inspiring the Shiritsu BeruBara Academy ~Versailles no Bara Re*imagination~ (Private BeruBara Academy: Rose of Versailles Re*imagination) project from Otomate. The project had both an unspecified “screen adaptation” and a game adaptation simultaneously in the works.
