Well deserved! The best Shojo-manga there ever was. Classic.

Congrats, Ikeda-san. Now maybe Viz will finally release this sucker here? I know. A guy can dream.

I'm kind of hoping CMX will pick it up, since they've been releasing a few of my old favorites, like Swan and From Eroica With Love.

But isn't the licensing situation a little shaky? Versailles no Bara was released in the US in the eighties in a very limited way, as a teaching aid, I believe. Does anybody know whether that license has yet expired?

Congrats to Ikeda!

I just want the manga or anime here in some form already. It's a crime that it seems we're the only country without it.

Wasn't that new movie supposed to be out last year or something?

Yay! I'm so happy that she got it Anime hyper

I just wish some American publisher would pick up the license. I can see why they would hesitate because of its age, but they've published older. and of course I'd buy it in a heartbeat, even if it was priced at 15 or 20 dollars per volume


Maybe if Toei animation ever finishes the remake movie and it becomes a smash hit, then maybe there'll be more of a market for an English release?


and as for the license for the teaching aid made in the 80s, I imagine that it's long gone. since it's been out of print for almost 20 years. but I could be wrong.

She well deserved it. Smile


P.S. If you like Ikeda's manga try Orpheus no Mado too, imho it's one of the greatest manga ever made, a masterpiece!

La Légion d'honneur?!

I seriously cannot congratulate the artist enough. I have always thought it was awesome that France has been so willing to give foreigners this award, too, and now I have no more excuses for my having not read this series yet. I want to see this released Stateside, too, so I can buy it!
