2014's combined 3rd/4th issue of Shueisha's Margaret magazine announced on Saturday that Riyoko Ikeda will publish a new Rose of Versailles short story in 2014's 12th issue on May 20. "Rose of Versailles Episode 4" will be the latest one-shot in Ikeda's historical romance series.
Ikeda previously published "Rose of Versailles Episode," a 16-page story included in Margaret's "Anniversary Book" to celebrate the magazine's 50th anniversary. She followed it up with a second one-shot in Margaret magazine on October 19.
Ikeda launched the original manga in Shueisha's Weekly Margaret magazine in 1972. The story is set in the intrigue-filled court of Queen Marie Antoinette before and during the upheavals of the French Revolution. Lady Oscar is a young woman raised as a man to serve in the palace guards.
The manga inspired a 40-episode anime in 1979-1980 that Right Stuf released in North America this year in two DVD sets and that Viki is streaming online. 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 even a live-action 1978 French/Japanese film.
