Fridge: Rose of Versailles

  • As noted elsewhere, the Alternative Foreign Theme Songs for the anime of Rose of Versailles are cheerful and happy in spite of this story being about the tragic lives and deaths of people living through the French Revolution, with the French one being the perkiest of all. I can't explain the others, but there is a reason if the French one is so perky: it's the story of a noble soldier that, when the Revolution starts, joins the people against the monarchy. Until you actually watch the series, a Frenchman would consider it the happiest story imaginable.
