The Revolution Begins

D-Boy’s cry for a revolution can’t be more timely enough–I’m 7 episodes into Utena and having a blast.

So, random impressions until I find an aspect of the show worth delving further into:

  • Some classy stock animation here. Instead of gattai sequences, we’re treated to an awesome gate, spiral staircase and some ZOMG inverted castle in the sky. It’s a kind of ritual that gears us up for the duel, and it’s very well-done. The insert song makes everything even better.
  • Speaking of insert songs, there’s one about trilobites.
  • I don’t like anime critters that much, but Chu-chu is some serious nutbladder-bursting material. I can see the love that the animators shower him–so actively eating things (even in the background), so unable to take it easy!
  • The silhouette girls are hilarious, and manage to be on topic despite taking on weird roles.
  • Nothing is sexier than Koyasu saying “baby”.
  • Except, half-naked Touga, perhaps!
  • I want Anthy to snap. Getting beat up every other ep is not fun.
  • Nanami, for a jealous schemer, is lulz. I actually feel sorry for her, getting trounced by Anthy’s weird animal posse. Srsly, snails in a pencil case??? And Utena wonders how Anthy has no friends?
  • Her OP shot is very intriguing, though–I can has dual-wielding ohohohoho nao?
  • Miki, oh Miki–how unfortunate of you to live in a world without a vaccine for measles…
  • Juri is scary. And is hot. Look at those curls. I want to wrap them around my– okay I’ll stop.
  • So far the show is pretty funny in the right places (random unannounced Saionji wwwwww), but I sense danger lurking around the corner.

    Danger, for sure, but it really does get only funnier as it goes on. Or rather, you start getting the joke better and better.

    So glad to see the attention~~~~
