THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

this series has lost all touch with reality, not that that's necessarily a bad thing.

Thats the point of the series, in a way it's meant to be a sort of fairytale world.. if you get what i mean? The school for example, if they stay at the school the students will not age. I think one of the main concepts of Utena is 'coming of age' as at the end someone 'escapes' so to speak. If you haven't seen all the series yet you won't have a clue what I'm on about but you'll understand at the end.

It's pretty funny. Not my favorite episode and my least favorite filler, but I still like the comedic style. I quite enjoyed Utena hitting Nanami on the head with the softball. Nanami on the loud speaker was hilarious as well as was the last scenes.

There was so much I didn't get. I am convinced that there is a lot of symbolism in this series as a whole but I wasn't getting all of it in this episode. Maybe it was just a regular filler.

First watch, I thought this just served as comedic relief. With this re-watch, though, I can definitely see this was not just some pointless episode to show Nanami's insane obsession with her brother.

It's a clear foreshadowing for what is revealed later in the series.

I agree, I was laughing pretty much the entire episode. I didn't expect an episode like this though, I figured this series would be totally serious but that doesn't seem to be the case. Not necessarily a bad thing.

LOL! I always wondered about that whenever watching Tsuwabuki's flashback. Nanami in 7th grade while Touga is in11th, which makes it four years age difference between them. The height difference and Touga's ability to carry her on his shoulder are both unrealistic for how old he was at that time.

And Touga punching a kangaroo FTW XD

My thoughts exactly lol
This anime certainly is amusing. It has serious bits and then it has ridiculous or silly humor lol
Very unique

Well, this episode started off serious and then pretty quickly turned ludicrous. Still, I enjoyed the episode - it was quite funny.

The boxing kangaroo was probably the highlight; but I also liked the gag with Nanami with her elaborate listening device set up just appearing right next to Utena and the boy as he was confessing.

What is it about Nanami that attracts runaway animals?

Also, Tsuwabuki is freaking adorable.

Loving it.. these last couple of episodes have had a good amount of comedy (especially Nanami) which I'm really enjoying.

LOL'd at the runaway Horse, Bull and Kangaroo.

Haha this is one of my favourite episodes, so random and funny!

At the same time, it is another character exploration, with the fact of how a single childhood event has shaped most of Tsuwabuki's character. The concept of childhood events and their impact is definitely a major theme in the series.

Well, this episode definitely wasn't the most revolutionary out of the bunch, but it was fun I guess.

Some really GAR action, Touga Kiryuu is a massive man.

Quickest and friendliest breakup I've ever seen, lol

At first I thought the shadow play was pretty random (like the episode), but how the shadow girls idealized the act of eating curry outdoors could be compared to how Nanami thought of the little boy as her prince.

A boxing kangaroo. Punching people in a school.
Right after a horse ran through the school corridor.

What in the name of fuck is going on here.
