Description A handsome youth by the name of Tenjo Utena transfers to the distinguished Ohtori Academy. But Utena's true identity is actually a girl, who due to a certain event from her past, has decided to cross-dress in order to fulfill the highest of ambitions. But at Ohtori Academy she meets none other than her old lover, Kiryuu Touga, who wears the Mark of the Rose on his finger, which is the sign of a duellist. Because of her possessing the exact same ring, Utena is challenged by the student body vice president, Saionji Kyouichi, to a duel in the floating rose garden. The reason for this duel is none other than the acquisition of the "Rose Bride"'s body, for with it comes the "power to revolutionize the world."

    IDK about you guys, but did anyone see Adolescence of Homura (Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part III: Rebellion)? Because I think this film had a LITTLE too much influence on THAT one. :P

    It's an allegory for adolescence...and Anthy driving it means they are having sex for the first time...the race against all the other cars and driving castle while trying to escape...the adrenaline rush of making love for the first time while fleeing toward eternal freedom. :P

    It's an allegory for adolescence, just like Akio's car was...because it was his adult toy.... When Utena became a car...she had become an adult toy for that was their first time making love for real. If it wasn't obvious already, they do burst out of the wreckage between the driving castle and the Utena car naked surrounded by roses screaming GRANT US THE POWER TO REVOLUTIONIZE THE WORLD. And then the naked kissing in the remains of the car as they drive off into the sunset.

    That's it. The path I must take has been chosen for me. I have 10 episodes left of the anime and I am absolutely loving it. When I am finished... I WILL BE WATCHING THE SHITSURAKUEN OUT OF THIS FILM, FOR THE REVOLUTION OF THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3

    The movie for me was better, simply because Utena and Anthy became *much* more canon, and it was beautiful <3 The failing was, the film makes barely any sense and you can't really love the characters unless you've seen the anime (imo). Therefor, everyone should watch both :D

    Me, personally I love both the anime and the movie; since the movie was my very first anime DVD I bought and the anime series was the first anime series that I watched that wasn't on TV. So both are very dear to me. But I always remembered this trailer seeing how its so breath-taking=)

    @Nenna333 my friend has the anime - says its real good, but the movie has almost nothing to do with the anime. :/
  • RebbieChan 2010-11-20 02:39:58
    I remember seeing this movie when i was like 10 i think maybe 11... anyway it didn't make any sense to me, was kind of disturbing... but i'd like to see it again now that i've seen (parts at least) of the anime and am older. still, why did they turn into a car? that was just the weirdest thing...
