Shitsurakuen is essentially just a huge rip-off of Utena, 100%. While Shitsurakuen is amusing, it is also not very good at all- Whereas Utena is fantastic.
Although the stories are fairly identical, the two series serve VERY different purposes- Utena is about female empowerment and being yourself without allowing gender titles to hold you down in addition to helping others experience this same revelation, while Shitsurakuen is a chauvanistic yuri-fest with no actual purpose.
