Wow, wasn't expecting this to be licensed! Shocked

A bit late for me to now get it since I've seen the show already, but glad that American fans now have a legal means of getting the shoujo classic.

HOLY MOTHER F***ING $#$%^@#$^!$#%@#$^@$#%@$#!!!!

I'm going to f***ing cry.

There are no appropriate words or gifs that effectively capture my reaction.

My day has been made.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUU FOREVER RIGHT STUF!!!!!!


I never ever thought in my wildest dreams that this would be possible. Holy shit.

Even if it is sold for over $400, I don't f***ing care, I'm buying it. Period.

----

Shit, not even a Sailor Moon or Cardcaptor Sakura relicense announcement would top this.

This is the best license announcement all year, hands down. In fact, it's the best in all the past 3 years since I first came across ANN.

This is the Diamond Crown of license announcements.

I think I'm going to be babbling on about this all day.

This is the best license announcement of 2012. Well done. With the excellent manga such a long shot, I'm ecstatic to have a chance to actually own this story for myself.

YES!! YES!! YES!!

Thank you Right Stuf and Viki for licensing Rose of Versailles. This show has been on my wish list for over 20 years. I can't wait for the pre-orders to be available.

How did ANN find out ahead of the official announcement on the comingsoon site?

They actually issued the announcement a bit before noon.

If you refreshed the page, the announcement would load early.

Whoa.

I'm only vaguely interested in the show, but I still recognize that's a helluva license. I'll probably buy it just because of how big of a move it is.

Kudos to Shawne and Rightstuf.

I am shocked as much as the rest of you. What an amazing license to score. Nozomi/TRSI must be doing something right in the making friends and business contacts department in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Way to go Kleckner & Co.!

This series is the Holy Grail to North American Anime fans.

I have heard about this anime from the very beginning of my fandom.

I'm am surprised/glad/thrilled that it is finally being released!

I'm going to have to get it!...after getting the New Sailor Moon series!

Holy Hell! YES! YES! YES!

I've been really wanting to see this show for a while now, but I never thought that it would actually be licensed.

Bravo, Nozomi. BRAVO!

Ditto ditto on all other wild enthusiasm expressed to this point and hereafter.

This has been a damned good year for licenses as far as I'm concerned.

Hey now, some Samurai Pizza Cats fans may beg to differ. Cool

But bravo for this license rescue. I will check this great show out for sure!
