The Rose of Versailles Episodes Manga’s English Release Is Delayed to 2023

Chief of Udon Entertainment Erik Ko has confirmed with Anime News Network that the company will release Riyoko Ikeda’s The Rose of Versailles Episodes manga in 2023. The company had previously scheduled the two-volume omnibus series for release in late Spring 2022. Ko said to ANN that the company had to “shuffle [its] release schedule” due to “supply chain issues of the whole printing and publishing industry.”

The manga is described as:

More than 25 years after she finished the original series, Riyoko Ikeda-sensei started a new serialization in 2013 with stories focusing on various side characters that are happening in a parallel timeline as the original comics. This gives the readers a much more in-depth look at characters like Andre, Alan, Gerodelle, and Rosalie.

Ikeda published the first 16-page Rose of Versailles Episode one shot in Shueisha’s Margaret magazine in 2013, 40 years after the end of the original series. She then continued penning The Rose of Versailles short stories for Margaret. The 11th volume, the first volume for the series in four decades, shipped in 2014 with a compilation of the first four “episodes.” The 14th volume shipped in 2018 and confirmed that it was the last compiled volume for the “episodes” series.
