It Was a 50/50
This time around we didn’t have much choice for the letter “V”. The other category saw a fair number of write-ins, but of the 18 unique participants, 9 of those votes went to our winner: Versailles no Bara, or The Rose of Versailles. This 1979 anime is one that’s been sitting on my shelf for some time, so this’ll be the perfect excuse to watch it! However, it comes in at 40 episodes so expect this one to take me some time to work through.
One thing I really love about this ABC series, is the fact that each letter seems to bring with it something completely different than the last. By time we reach “Z”, I’m sure that this will be a fairly unique snapshot of the medium that is anime, in so much that we’ll have sampled a bit of everything. Don’t you find that interesting as well?
Anyway, until I can get to the review proper, consider checking out the previous winner, Uchouten Kazoku or my big alphabetized list of every anime I’ve reviewed. As always, the breakdown of the votes can be found below.
Other Votes: Voltes V, Vampire Hunter D, Violet Evergarden (Already reviewed, please be mindful of this in the future. Vote discarded.), VividRed Operation, Voices of a Distant Star, and Victory Gundam
