My favorite part of using the “global messaging service” LINE is being able to chat with my friends for free even if they use another carrier or are in another country. A close second is the “sticker” (スタンプ [stamp] in Japanese) function, which are basically bigger and better emoji. On April 11, LINE released 5 new paid sets of stickers, including a BeruBara (The Rose of Versailles) set:
The BeruBara stamps/stickers were 199 yen. Some of my favorites are below the cut.
Most of the stickers are of Oscar, Antoinette, and Oscar, but Louis XVI, Louis Charles, Fersen, and Rosalie make appearances, too. The stickers often depict scenes from the manga. I’m not exactly sure when I’ll get to use the one of Andre with the text “Someday I’ll give my life for you” (おれはいつか。。。おまえのために命をすてよう) one, but I fully expect to use the one of Oscar laughing uproariously at her “engagement party” frequently.
