ROSE OF VERSAILLES VOLUME 1 – PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE

UDON ENTERTAINMENT CELEBRATES THE HARDCOVER RELEASE OF

THE ROSE OF VERSAILLES VOLUME 1

At long last, the wait is over! UDON Entertainment is thrilled to announce the hardcover release of THE ROSE OF VERSAILLES VOLUME 1. Set during the French Revolution, THE ROSE OF VERSAILLES follows the story of Oscar François de Jarjeyes. Oscar, a young noblewoman raised as a son by her father, ascends to commander of Marie Antoinette’s palace guard. Oscar is brought face-to-face with the luxury of King Louis XVI’s court at Versailles. Joined by her servant André, Oscar is privy to the intrigue and deceit of France’s last great royal regime.

Heralded as one of the greatest examples of shoujo manga, THE ROSE OF VERSAILLES was adapted as an anime in 1979, released in North America through Nozomi Entertainment. UDON Entertainment has translated the original manga and given THE ROSE OF VERSAILLES a spectacular hardcover treatment that fans of the series will not want to miss.

Rose of Versailles Vol1 preview 02“The Rose of Versailles is a jewel of the manga world and never has it been so polished. This is the definitive edition of this influential series, with its emotional and honest look at gender presentation and expectations. It makes a fantastic cap to the 100th anniversary year of the Yuri genre and will make a glorious addition to any manga collector’s shelves,” says Erica Friedman, founder of Yuricon.

“It has been a very long process for us because of how important this book is to UDON as a publisher, and to myself as a manga reader,” says UDON Entertainment Chief Erik Ko. “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 names 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.”

persona3manga-vol1

GET READY TO FACE YOUR TRUE SELF AND SURVIVE THE DARK HOUR WITH THE PERSONA 3 MANGA SERIES!

When UDON Entertainment recently launched Shuji Sogabe’s Persona 4 manga series to rave reviews and brisk sales, we knew one of the most common questions from fans would be, “But what about the Persona 3 manga? Is that coming too?” Wonder no longer, as we are thrilled to announce that not only are we launching Persona 3 – also with art by Shuji Sogabe – in English later this year, you’ll be able to get your hands on the first volume in September, just a few short months away!

Based on the beloved, critically acclaimed video game released for the PlayStation 2 in 2006, Persona 3 is lauded even today for its engaging storyline, relatable characters, challenging gameplay, memorable soundtrack, and stylish visuals. Persona 3 follows a diverse group of high school students as they stumble upon a strange phenomenon known as the “Dark Hour,” a mysterious time that occurs at the stroke of midnight, between one day and the next. Now, Minato Arisato and the rest of his friends in the Special Extracurricular Execution Squad must balance their busy high school lives with their continuing investigation into the Dark Hour – and you thought your high school life was tough! These unlikely heroes will have to face the demons within and find the strength to call upon their inner selves – their “Personas” – if they are to survive the horrors of the Dark Hour…

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a seasoned Persona 3 veteran or are just discovering this compelling world for the first time – the Persona 3 manga series is certain to appeal to anyone who simply enjoys smart storytelling dealing with themes of existence, identity, and the paranormal. Are you ready to face your true self?

Persona 3 kicks off later this year with the first volume, which will be available in September at local comic book stores and various physical and online retailers. The Persona 3 manga is the latest addition to UDON’s comprehensive lineup of Persona books, which includes Persona 3 and Persona 4 art books as well as the previously mentioned Persona 4 manga series.
