Nina's sleeping face is cute! Yet... Nobody doodled on it.

Nina better keep her dreams in her sleep, because the creator of Rose of Versailles hates people cosplaying as her characters (which is egotistical and insane, really).

Initially, I thought this was a parody of Captain Harlock, but when I read the comic twice over, this is more like a parody of Revolunary Utena.

I am not sure if that series is called Revolunary Utena, but something close I am sure.

But making Kevin wear a dress and then turning him into a lady is very funny idea. But I do wonder, where is Myoopi place or when does he have a role in this story?

None the less, this was a clever idea, so good job. Thank you for all the time you spent on the comic, very humorous and well thought out idea.

How did I know that Kevin was somehow going to end up in a dress?

Rose of Versailles referenced in anything = AUTO WIN.

Can't wait to see where this goes Anime smile And the art style is spot on, which makes it even funnier! Awesome job, Cloe!

I really want to see Rose of Versailles. I heard it influenced Utena some.

Kevin looks good as a girl.

Nice job, Sara!

And the manga-ka of RoV doesn't like people cos-playing her story?! That is a bit hypocritical. If I could actually draw, I would take it as a supreme compliment that people chose my story to dress up as. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

The Rose of Versailles homage was lulzworthy. Laughing

Lady Nina!!!

Laughing

I haven't seen Rose of Versailles, but that one panel easily made this comic worthwhile. Oh, and the ending was funny too.

I have no idea if they are baseless or not, but just because people do it doesn't mean the author likes it.
