Udon Entertainment to Release the First Volume of The Rose of Versailles Manga in December 2019

Udon Entertainment revealed at its panel at San Diego Comic-Con that it will release the first volume of Riyoko Ikeda’s The Rose of Versailles manga in December 2019. The remaining four volumes are slated to ship three or four months apart. The company said that all five omnibus volumes of the manga have been localized, and the localization is now waiting for Ikeda Production’s approval.

The company also stated:

It has been a very long process for us because of how important this book is to UDON. We decided to actually finish the translation and localization work and lettered the whole series, so we can can cross-check all the details in the 82 chapters and side stories to make sure a lot of historical character and location’s name are correct, before we start planning on the release. What it means is that we will be sure that we can stick to a release schedule, and also ensure that there is no mistake or back tracking on the localization. We are very proud of the end results. Every sound effect is also localized and touched up too to match with the original look of the Japanese edition.

    It’s about time! I feel like it’s been forever since they initially announced that this was licensed. Glad to hear we’ll finally be seeing this series in print and that it will be getting a steady release!
