Zoicite☆For all I carry are murdered
jyuufish
I have watched the first two episodes of RoV (sorry about not responding back to alot of comments, however when I woke up from my nap tonight.. I was just really groggy and couldn't form coherant sentances. However, watching this series makes me realize that I really do like strong females. I mean girls that just deliever a whole lot of asskicking and wield the whole "I can do things just as good as a man!". This being brought up because I really really love Oscar.

I am not sure about Marie-Antoinette though, I am more inclined toward Oscar/Andre because that scene in the first episode where Oscar and Andre are just gong to fisticuffs really made me go 'awww how cute, they must love each other'. <-- that is because I have a screwed up sense of heterosexual romance. This may very well be though because I'm a lesbian and I demand that my women are strong.

Also...

Everything.

In.

This.

Anime.

Fucking.

SPARKLES.

But hey, at least it's not vampires. There is something to be said for small mercies.

RoV is one of the best anime/manga's ever ♥ Oscar/Andre is an awesome ship, also. I recommend checking out the live action movie, too!

I'm going to have to check out the live action movie then, I saw it referenced on a page that had alot of information about RoV, and pictures to denote what the characters look like, so I anticipate that. Not to mention I saw some Takarazuka caps which definitely made me salivate.

Oscar/Andre. Not totally sold, but as I was telling one of my DW friend's list, it's not a hard sell.. I go with the gut instinct pairing generally.

I've always wanted to watch/read more of Rose of Versailles. It looks so pretty and I seem to have a thing for manga set in certain historical periods in time. :)

It's SO pretty, I swear.. I love this series, it's very stylized and that's part of what makes it wonderful, not to mention I'm seeing now how Utena paid homages to this series in little ways.

Ahahaha, yeah.. I read the Twilight series and while there are some parts of it that I do like (I like Jasper/Alice and Rosalie/Emmmett), the two reasons I've listed cannot begin to justify the atrocities that are THE REST OF THE BOOK. And the last book, god damn.. what the hell was Meyers thinking. (Oh wait.. that might be beyond her capabilities)

(Deleted comment)
I did watch the movie, or rather it played at my work over and over so I had no choice but to watch it really. Honestly though the movie was decent. (and vampire baseball is definitely something I would like to play) but for the most part Stephanie Meyer's writing skills are really very flat not to mention the misuse and/or overuse of certain phrases. You can tell that Stephanie Meyers had a thesarus there at all times, it really shows.. because with each phrase you can imagine her picking it up and looking for a word, that is WHEN she remembers to do that.
