Udon Entertainment announced at its San Diego Comic-Con panel that it has licensed Riyoko Ikeda’s classic shojo manga Rose of Versailles. The series will be released in two-in-one omnibus volumes to quicken the publishing schedule. The first volume is scheduled for the second quarter of 2016. This will be the first official English release of the manga.
Ikeda launched Rose of Versailles in Shueisha’s Weekly Margaret magazine in 1972.
