As influential to shoujo as One Piece was to shounen. The tragedy of the French Revolution as told through a shoujo perspective.
An old anime that is actually enjoyable. Animation is gorgeous for an old gem. Strong female lead, some action, romance, and plot twists.
A classic tale of love and tragedy, I believe it to be iconic and influential to anime as Romeo and Juliet was to literature.
Incredibly beautiful and surprisingly accurate interpretation of the French Revolution.
The character’s take a while to come into their own but Deazki’s dramatic direction is entertaining and surprisingly powerful.
I own this on DVD. And it is worth the money. Personally, everything I would want from a tragic romance.
