Wacky Wafers Candy From The 70's

Lady Oscar - Episode 1 - The Great Choice

Paris 1755. In the house of the General Jarjayes come to light yet another child, the last of many that already had from the General welcomes the little ones with a strong anger. He dreamed of finally having a son to perpetuate the name of the house. Almost willing to discard them, the General has a stroke of genius: mystify reality. He decides to call his daughter male by the name of Oscar François, promises to grow and breed it like a man. Years pass and the girl is now a teenager, quick sword and foil and filled with grit in his training with Andrea servant - we'll see - will play a key part in the life of Oscar.
General Jarjayes turns to Louis XV to offer his daughter as captain of the Royal Guard. Indeed, when the General speaks of Oscar talk to men, presenting it as his son. The king reacts amused, but all in all pleased and not at all skeptical to entrust the command of the Guard for Oscar. The only condition is given is that Oscar is proven effective with a sword most of the count's son Girodelle, also vying for the nomination. Despite the insistence
father, Oscar does not want to become a captain. She does not like the idea of \u200b\u200bhaving to defend a woman, Marie Antoinette, which will shortly come to France to marry the grandson of Louis XV. But the father insists and she decides to face the litigant Girodelle the same day when it will officially under the eyes of the King, but not in front of him. Waiting for him on the course and the challenge

course Girodelle Oscar win, with obvious embarrassment and shame of the latter having been beaten by a woman. The challenge is not taken well by the private Jarjayes General and by the same sovereign. Oscar and father have yet another fight. Fled on horseback with André will have to fight with bare hands with him, especially when the recalls that as he fought to remain always a woman and that there is still time to change. Oscar fled first to hear it, comes home and decides to wear the uniform.

It is not easy to frame out the character of Oscar, declined in the context of highly sophisticated half of 1700 and the dawn of French Revolution. The figure of a girl, dressed and educated as a man, if today might seem bizarre even negligible, was certainly not usual for the historical context in which it is inserted. Among other things, the paradox is that - apart from rare exceptions that we will see during the episodes - all the characters / actors in the series seem perfectly comfortable with the ambiguity of the figure of Oscar. There are prejudices in front of her to be both women and men. Emotional implications arise only when this dualism is felt, even to a very lively and sometimes poignant, especially when these implications involving three well-defined characters of his life: Count Hans Axel Fersen, his attendant servant André Grandier and, last but not least, the Queen Marie Antoinette. It will therefore be interesting to watch these episodes in this case we will see shortly.

Manga ( by Pimpulu where I want to thank )
The story of our heroine in the manga, after an accurate description for your historical context in which the characters move and the story of the birth of the protagonist and fate of the father figure for her, opens with the usual practice to a duel between Oscar and his father, instead Andrè.Durante this exercise, the father of Oscar reveals the approach of a very important event for France which the arrival of the Imperial Princess Austrian Academy which will provide service and protection devoted to the cost of his life. Unlike the animated Oscar trsposizione shows no reluctance to engage in the task assigned to it when you sweat and even pride in wanting to be part of this lead to compimento.Inoltre, there is no decisive duel with Lieutenant Girodelle that would determine who among them ' Oscar should last and hold the office of Captain of the Guard Reale.Il manga, drawing on the skill and noble hand of Ryoko Ikeda in 1972, is published several times in Italy: in 83 by Fabbri editor with color plates and a final altered and then followed in 1993 by Granata Press until you get to the published version from 2001 dlla Planet Manga (Panini Comics) Original drawings reversed (so you can legere so to speak to the 'Western', ie from left to right) in a complete edition and uncensored on the images and / or special adaptations in the dialogues between the characters finally followed by a translation faithful to the Japanese. The direction of this first episode is being edited by the director of Tadao Nagahama and so on until the 18th episode, can not now rely on the cooperation of Osamu Dezaki that began to replace its predecessor as early as 12 ° from the episode and even before the 5 °, with obvious improvements. The most careful and kind of manic portranno noted among the titles this change of direction in official since the 19th episode.
