Drama, Daily Life, Fantasy - 1997 (TV)
Ranking: 316

Just after Utenas parents died she was consoled by a prince who gave her a ring with a rose crest on it. Utena was so impressed by the Prince that she vowed to become one herself one day. A few years later Utena is attending Ohtori Academy where she gives all the teachers headaches because she dresses in a boys uniform so she can be like the prince she met long ago. After Utenas friend is insulted by a member of the Student Council, Utena fights in a duel for her friends honor. Utenas rose crest allows her to enter the dueling arena where Utena wins the duel and becomes engaged to the Rose Bride. Unknowingly, Utena is pulled into a series of duels with other members of the Student Council for the possession of the Rose Bride. As she becomes fond of Anthy, the Rose Bride, she must fight to keep her friend safe and to discover the horrifying secret behind Ohtori Academy. (Source: ANN)

Nihon Review









This title is surreal enough to probably give people a headache, so if you do not enjoy surreal material, you'll probably one take off a star or two. Despite being a personal favorite of mine, I can't quite give it five stars due to the inclusion of certain unnecessary elements that detract rather than add to the overall plot and atmosphere. - ThemAnime


It would be hard to recommend Revolutionary Girl Utena on its one-of-a-kind charm alone, but it makes for a good watch because of the great characters as well. With enough symbolism to satisfy this animation-loving bear, and characters sure to appeal to everyone’. - Nihon Review
