The duel in this episode really does feel like the end of the world.

I cannot believe what happened at the end of this episode. I might be disappointed if it persists this way.

Wow, I'm really impressed with this series so far. And to think I said I was on the verge of dropping it in the episode 3 discussion.

Wow, what a cliffhanger. Fantastic series so far, all that's left is for the ending to deliver.

Yeah, I have no clue what is going on anymore. Even before Anthy's betrayal (that wasn't all that unexpected. Ugly bitch).

Well, there is a lot of crazy shit happening but a powerful episode nonetheless - very appropriate for the End of the World.

Ultra solid episode. Motives pls come back.

Overall the last cour was the most polished, kind of makes you wish the first two were a bit more, but I've seen it in other JC Staff productions, so I guess it can't be helped.

And now that I think about it, I've been waiting for the flying horsies forever, feeling a bit cheated right now.

This last episode reaaaallllyyyy better wrap things up in terms of motives, character backgrounds etc. Either that or well-placed ambiguity. Because if I'm left with a really sour ending I'm not sure how I will feel about the series. These last 5-6 episodes have been quite good. Beyond that though, there was little to no plot movement for 30 episodes and tons of repetition.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the symbolism, music, and dark storytelling of the actual storyline, its just been covered up!! I need more of that and less repetition.

Fingers crossed for the last episode.

Well, Touga did warn Utena about Akio AND Anthy. And I still didn't expect that to happen. Well, at least I started to when it seemed like Utena and Anthy grew closer.

Utena sure got some moves. Even the ouji-sama is astonished.

Himemiya the backstabbing scumbag, we'll see how this all ends soon enough I guess.

A really fast paced episode. I have no clue what Akio's agenda is, he knows stuff that Utana doesn't but is never clear about it.

WHYYY ANSHIIII NOOO!

She just can't accept Utena as her 'prince.'

Really loved hearing the Student Councils' introduction one final time.

I love that Miki is just staring at his stopwatch, leaving it running… Lot of nice touches here.

I truly despise Akio but he did make some interesting points against Utena.

Anthy...WHY!?
