Here is RightStuf's press release page on the license. The series will start streaming on Viki this December and come out on DVD in 2013. Being even further awesome, RightStuf is soliciting questions from fans for a Q&A with Rose of Versailles creator Ikeda Riyoko.
Just to show how excited I am for this, here's some Rose of Versailles fan art. (Source links below each pic.)
The fan art above is cuter than a basket full of puppies.
Another cute (if kind of depressing XD) fan art.
I like Oscar and Andre together, but Oscar looks SO good with other women also.
(Antoinette does prefer Oscar's company over her husband's. ;D )
Soooo happy this was licensed. I didn't remotely expect it.
Update from Okazu:
Viki.com is premiering the opening episode at New York Comic-Com on October 13, followed by a Q&A session with Prof. Susan Napier. (I've already spoken with Prof. Napier and asked her a few questions written by myself, Katherine H. and Erin S. I'll hope that she'll have time to answer a few of them for us.)Sounds like a fun event! I'm not attending New York Comic-Con, but I am interested in Prof. Napier's answers to my, Erin, and Erica's questions, should she have time to answer them.
