The magazine hints that the new chapters will center around the character Victor Clement de Girodelle.
The story is set in the intrigue-filled court of Queen Marie Antoinette before and during the upheavals of the French Revolution. Lady Oscar is a young woman raised as a man to serve in the palace guards.
Ikeda launched the original manga in Shueisha’s Weekly Margaret magazine in 1972.
