So what is everyone's favorite Utena song? I know its random, but I feel like starting a topic. You know that feeling? Anyway, mine is "Magic Lantern Butterfly Moth 16th Century."

[ mood | Shining Thing?!?!?! ]

What wonder and joy am I feeling right now...

I'm sooo glad that I found this Community.


Hello everyone.,. [14 Apr 2005|09:57pm]

[ mood | bored ]

Hello to all the Utena fans out there.. I have watched every episode of Shoujo Kakumei Utena and I thought it was awesome. The artwork as well as the music by JA & Seazer was amazing. Although, I didn't get the Black Rose Saga too well. I might have to watch it once more to fully understand it. I watched the movie as well and I thought it rocked especially all the nude scenes. I think thats what made me think much more openly. If anyone lives In Sacramento IM me at darkvampyreyuna.. Anyways, I'm glad to be here..
Oh yeah, I do have some utena icons and some others as well.. I put them on my icon community..

Goodevening fellow council members,

My name is Juri (I hate going by my real name) and I have just joined the group. I would really like to get to know everyone better, please. Thank you.


New duelist. [20 Jun 2004|01:02am]

[ mood | awake ]

As I show my signet, I walk upon the platform, and I go, "HI!!"
My name is Abbie-Chan. (No duh. ^_^) I really love Utena, and the depth of the series. I was looking for a good Utena community, and I'm glad I found one!

I'll be starting a new site soon, called "Duelist Drive" where I'll talk about the reason why each duelist duels, and so forth. It'll be a small site, and I'll greatly apperciate any info anyone can give me. I also have a theory around my site. If anyone is interested in hearing my theory, just reply! ^__^

I watch the rose petals fly, and I drop my sword.

Symbolism [08 Jun 2004|08:46am]

[ mood | amused ]

I was wondering if anyone wanted to talk about the symbolism in the first four eps of the black rose saga which I just started...FINALLY!!

I really don't understand a lot of the shadow girls, and the stuff that appears in the dueling arenas...

Also I would love to talk about Juri's relationship to Shiori.

Sometimes, the flower is given a tragic connation as well, such as a blossom carried on the wind to mean ideal death.

Found this online as part of symbolism for flowers. Though the site had it listed fro cherry blossoms (Sakura) I think it's fairly appropriate for Utena. At the end of every duel, the flower petals are shown on the wind. It is supposed to be their death, or in my own opinion, their failure to succeed in their duel. Tellme if I'm crazy, but Saionji's first duel was the duel fo friendhsip, and he failed cause eh doesn't truly know what that is, he knows he and Touga do not have it, while Utena does. Duel 2 is choice, and her choice to keep anthy from saioji is stronger than his choice to take anthy. kinda weak, but keep going. Duel 3 was with Miki and reason. He lost because he lost his reason to duel when Anthy cheered for Utena. Next is Juri and the duel for love. She lost not to utena but to herself and her regrets over her feelings for Shiori and never doing anything about it. She beat utena cause she knows what love is like, moreso than Utena and her search for dios, which in itself is her search for her own strength, but lost in the end because of her own remorse and regret. And now that this entry is a lot longer than it should be I think I'll quit. If anyone is interested comment, and I'll add the last 3 duels.

As noticed, I put way too much thought into this, lol.

Symbolism and the like [21 Apr 2004|04:16pm]

[ mood | crazy ]

Since no one has really posted in this in a while, I thought I'd try and spark some conversation out of this.

As many, if not all, of you know Utena is a fabulous series, not only for the wonderous characters and story, but the much debated symbolisms in the series. Hell, the movie itself was filed with symbolism. And that's where our discusion will begin.

The question I ask, and I am looking for at least ONE respone, is this:

What is your favorite symbol from the Utena movie and why? Please describe the scene (be creative with it), the symbolism behind it, and why it is your favorite.

Anyone? Let's see if we can get at least 10 comments on this! :)


P.S. someone add their favorite, and I promise I will add mine. I have to watch the movie again to decide. :)

Hey Everyone!!! [05 Apr 2004|01:09am]

[ mood | cheerful ]

I'm so excited because I just finaly bought the first 2 Sagas to Utena so I'll get to see those as soon as they ship! Yeah!!!(Runs around the room jumping up and down).

I have a ton of questions about stuff I've seen in amv's showing footage from the movie and the series but a lot of its movie footage. I was wondering if any one would be willing to chat on aim with me some time just so that I could pick your brains.

Any one whos willing to just chat about anime or life I wouldn't mind chatting with either!

Hope you all have a great week!

SKU Rocks and I love Nanami [02 Apr 2004|01:25am]

[ mood | desprate for SKU ]

Hi! I'm so excited to find a Utena site. I've just gotten into SKU in the past month or so. It has taken me over.

I lived on a Nanami amv for almost a month before I got smart and went to find more amv's. I'm curently reading the script because I haven't been able to find the manga scans. If anyone could help me out with that I would be ever so grateful!

I've been reading essays analyzing characters, the series and the movie b/c I want answers. I can't wait to see it!

I'm working on buying it but alas I'm a poor college student with no money but I'm working on it. I've put a lot together from watching amv's but I also have a ton of questions.

Any one who wants to ever have a friendly indepth chat about Utena can aim me as cathrinetta which is also my lj too.

Glad to find some awesome SKU fans!

[ mood | hopeful ]

Hiya. I'm looking for Revolutionary Girl Utena doujinshi featuring the coupling RukaxJuri. I'm having a hard time finding some. I've been on the usual popular doujin sites and I still can't find any, even on eBay.

...So I'm hoping some nice person who has any will read this will sell me their's and hopefully, if someone knows where I can find any, they'll point me that way...

Thank you.

...And if anyone has checked out the boot-legged set of the whole series+movie, can you tell me the quality of it...?

Utena series boxed set? [30 Dec 2003|12:55am]

[ mood | ecstatic ]

Hey, I just heard that they're coming out with a boxed set of the entire Revolutionary Girl Utena series! Can anyone confirm the fact or fiction of this accusation? Because it'd be really cool if it were true!

Shoujo Kakumei Utena [20 Dec 2003|10:57pm]

[ mood | bouncy ]

I'm soooo happy to be in an Utena community . . . I've read the entire movie and seen the movie but I've only seen the first VHS volume of the anime. But the style of art they use . . . it's my favorite ever. I want to draw that way. *emphatic nod*
And the story is so beautiful too . . . it's definitely one of my favorites!!! And the music is awesome! I bought the soundtrack to the movie 'cause it's so great. ^_^

[20 Dec 2003|02:20pm]

Hooray!!! People I can talk to about Utena!!!

I know 1 other gal who is even aware that this show exists. I absolutely swear by this series, but have a lot of difficulty introducing it to other people. (They get turned off by the homosexual connotations.... and start to doubt me as a heterosexual. Arg).

Has anyone ever written to Cartoon Network's Adult Swim about getting some episodes on air? Yeah, it would have the hideous dubbing.....::shivers:: but it would pull in a big audience, I'm certain.

If anyone is interested, there's a brand spankin' new Utena RPG set up at GreatestJournal. You don't need a code to join, so that should make things easier for some people.

Most of the characters are still available, including Anthy and the entire student council. It's set during the beginning of the series and the players decide where things go from there. If this sounds like something you'd enjoy participating in, feel free to send in an application.

just wanted to advertise a writing community which may be of interest to some of you: utenadrabble. *^^*

Hello Everyone! [14 Sep 2003|05:29pm]

[ mood | bouncy ]

Here there fellow Utena fans *huggles* Well, I'm a newbie so I thought that I would introduce I am =^.^= Anyway, I'll just tag along with the Utena icon-ness and post the ones that I have made (not all that great, but I'm still experimenting)

And just as an Utena related plug, I have TCG dedicated to Utena that I just opened recently.

Okay, I think that I have taken up enough of everyone's time now ^^;

Utena Icons! [13 Sep 2003|07:38pm]

[ mood | artistic ]

::waves:: Konnichiwa! Or Konban wa...or...uh...whatever.

I have maaaaaaaade... ICONS! ::amused:: Go me!

Okay. Here's the deal. None of them are animated because I don't have an animation program. However, I have lovely still icons with pretty text. If you'd like an icon, please send me the picture and the text you'd like on it, and I'll do my best to comply. ^^

I've only started experimenting with icon making, so, I'm still pretty new at this.


The other icons can be found here. If I post all of the icons here, I overly abuse my bandwith. ><

Okay. I'm done. ^^
