Nanami is so stupid but the sad thing is girls like her really exist.

I agree. I know girls like her, even.




I kept thinking of that SNL/Will Ferrel thing "more cowbell!" during this episode.

Mooooo~!

The Cow!Nanami was so surreal. Her dream almost had me in stitches, especially Touga's dinner...

The cowbell gag was absolutely hilarious. Nanami's stupidity never fails to provide comic relief.

That was hilarious and surprisingly relevant. A brand name makes her wear a cowbell around and she actually acts like one. I laughed hard when I realized that she was wearing the nose ring as well.

I'm rewatching the series and this one never ceases to make me ROFL.

I wonder how Nanami looked like in that cow nose ring, surely not a pretty picture if it made even the ice queen Juri scream in horror. It also proved that Tsuwabuki was the only one who's loyal to Nanami, seeing as her other lackies acted like the cowbell looked good on her when they knew it didn't. And man, was Anthy nasty when she handed Utena the red sweater only to provoke Nanami. It seems in those Nanami episodes Anthy manages to make a fool out of her.

The funniest episode in Utena besides the one about the curry *surfing elephants FTW*.

I mean of course I get what they were trying to say and actually think it was pretty funny, but what does it have to do with the show? Felt like filler...

Really funny episode. This is one of those rare instances where I actually like Nanami's character - she was so dumb here it was amazing.

A nice bit of comedy to break up the gloom and doom... and creepy siblings. I liked this a lot, but I so wanted to see Nanami with the nose ring.

Wait a sec... This is a nice opportunity to troll and humiliate senafags or some another kind of retards with such a wulgar tastes like them.
Create a thread with the picture where Nanami laughs and hold her hand in front of her chin and write:
"Sena, look what I just received! Now I have a super-exclusive cowbell by Sebastian Dior and you haven't! A-ha-ha-ha-ha!"
And when she's eating grass:
"Sena, look at my luxurious diet from France Montignac! This is exclusive formula for my exellent body, and he wrote it spetially for me! You will never get something like this! Maa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!"
And when she's finally turned into cow:
"Sena, look at my new face! I endured the most complicated operation from elitest plastic surgeon of the world: Anthonio Errero! My new face underlines my best virtues by the most exellent way! You will never be able to that higtest level of self-expression!
Moo-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!"

most bizarre ep so far. i liked the cow song they used, though. i assume it's a pre-existing song? there's no way they wrote a song just for this ep haha

edit: ah. here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYnKll5PD3A

apparently pretty popular! never heard of it before this episode

To those of you saying that this was a filler and it was irrelevant...let me tell you that Utena is a character-driven anime and NOT as much plot-driven, so the filler argument is invalid. It's a "Nanami plus duel" episode not a filler.

Aside from being absolutely hilarious (Nanami's mooing broke me), is it completely unfounded for me to think that Nanami's gradual transformation into a full-blown cow over the course of the episode is supposed to be an allegory for how people gradually assimilate society's values into their own sense of self and become assimilated into society as a result?

You can't imagine how I laughed during the entire episode!
A good break, but now I want the battles!

I realized one morning... That I hate this world. This world is made of countless boxes.
People bend and stuff their bodies into their own boxes.
And stay there for the rest of their lives.
And eventually, inside the box, they forget: what they looked like; what they loved; who they loved.
That's why I'm getting out of my box.
I'm one of the chosen. That's why I'm going to destroy this world.

I can always count on Nanami for comic relief. And sadly I do know materialistic people like her.

I'm curious about the nose ring..

Where do these silly episodes come from. But damn, Nanami is best girl. She has a glorious character design.

I wish I could've seen the nose ring.. ;__;

WTF...

This episode was ridiculous... right when Nanami turned into the cow I couldn't take this episode seriously anymore. And the nose ring...I was hoping for it to be like a normal one, but I'm pretty sure it's the one cows would wear. XD

This episode, what the hell. Pretty funny.

I suspect episode 24 will also be comedic, since ep 8 was comedic as well.

Best episode since episode 8.

So is every eighth episode going to be like this?

4/5

Funny on several levels, even the obvious interpretation, but trust me... there's a point to it all :) In particular, this episode (and most of the Nanami ones) will make more sense on your second or third viewing of the series.

The obvious moral about designer goods, etc is fine enough, but a) there's a reason this *happens* to Nanami, and b) there's a reason this happens to *Nanami* (along with most of the other unusual shenanigans you've seen).

Also, have some pity on the translators. "mo" is a particle in Japanese that can be used in different places, so finding a viable way to convey that in the subtitles was probably pretty tricky.

This episodes proves yet again that once you put Nanami in less serious situations, she turns into somewhat a tolerable character.

Just nanami could be that stupid, though she looked cute with that horns and the moo speaking.

I got a fever...and it can only be cured by more cowbell.

That had to be the most fucked up show I've ever seen, anime or otherwise.

I loved Anthy just calmly knitting throughout.
