Day 175/365

Oscar François de Jarjayes

From the anime Rose of Versailles, Oscar François de Jarjayes is a powerful woman that was raised from birth as a man so she could be her fathers successor and command the Royal Guards serving at the Court after he retires. Oscar is loved by both men and women, especially Marie Antoinette whom she protects within the Court. As the series moves along Oscar learns of the political ideals of the Revolution and that the royalist regime is corrupt, thus the French Revolution is about to begin.

Why I like her: She is a wonderful woman that fights for what she believes is correct. Her character was so well done in EVERYTHING she had going against her and had to fight for. There's a great story between her and André Grandier which is one of my favourites.

Why I hate her: No hate.

Overall: Oscar is the perfect character for today since it's Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day here in Quebec which also celebrates the provinces The Fête nationale.

Andre and Oscar

    A woman called Oscar? o_o Rose of Versaillles is still one of those titles I need to watch in the near future. Something for the august marathon perhaps?

  2. Probably one of the oldest and most well done series I’ve watched. I have a strong dislike for weak female characters. If a Naruto, or Bleach fan gets tired of their weak, doting female protagonists, then they should watch this show. I watched it after another my favorites, Revolutionary Girl Utena and found Oscar to be a better, possibly more realistic anime character.

    @DonKangolJones i completely agree. strong female characters of this caliber are hard as hell to come by in anime.
