All eyes are on Utena Tenjou, a mysterious transfer student to Ohtori Academy. But Utena's eyes seem to be fixed on one familiar face that stands out among the rest—Touga Kiryuu, Utena's childhood friend. Touga knows of Utena's past and possesses knowledge of the Mark of the Rose, a set of unique rings worn by those who compete for the hand of the Rose Bride. The Rose Bride, Himemiya Anthy, belongs to whomever wins her in a duel, and the one that wins all the duels is said to be given the power to bring revolution to the world. Utena is drawn into the duels, but Touga and their complicated history together may end up unraveling everything. Nothing is as it seems in this retelling of the original anime series.

Honestly, I had to watch this like three times before I had an inkling of a clue what this anime was about. I was not familiar with the Utena series before, and I ended up watching the movie because I was informed that it wasn't the same as the series.

So I watched it and wondered what sort of crack I had smoked before popping the DVD in. Apparently, I had not smoked any crack, and it was just Utena that was messing with my head.

The story is...I don't know. Up to now, I hardly know what happened. It's long, convoluted, and they don't ...

Mixed Feelings
The film starts off playing mostly on the strengths of the TV series, being the bold use of abstract but metaphorically clear storytelling and dramatic abstract visuals to enhance it. Even as the story meanders a bit, it deals with some aspects of characters and themes not explored in the original show but that work well to form a natural thematic sequel, particularly all the intrigue involving Tougou, which builds to a strong climax.
However, the last leg of the film, about the last 20 minutes or so, finds itself unable to resolve any remaining thematic tension points and devolves into a convoluted mess of forced, ...

Revolutionary Girl Utena: Adolescence Apocalypse. After what I can imagine was a great critical/commercial success of the original series (which I can say is rather well-deserved), the board thought it a good idea to create a movie that's... kind of a retelling, kind of an alternate universe... whatever. Cool! In theory. This Utena:AA deals with the same sort of spiritual themes as its predecessor, and maybe even does it in a more digestible way. I can see how others reviewers would give it a lot of mileage for its use of themes, symbolism, and generally good art and music. I tend to agree that these ...
