    Default Revolutionary Girl Utena

    I found this series a few weeks ago at the bookstore about a girl who is looking for her prince charming. "Mr. Licky lick", as he is affectionately called, is at the center of the book's plot, spurring the main character Utena's actions from the day she meets him. The manga even comes complete with several damsels in distress, one who gets chartered back and forth when the victor of a rose battle changes.

    When I first picked out the book, the plot was eerily similar to that of Sailor Moon to the point I thought they had ripped the plot off of the older anime and used it to create the newer one! They even had rose rings, symbolic of one's unique powers, just like the batons and stars of The Sailor Scouts!

    As for me, I haven't taken such a great liking to the book, so I won't post a favorite character or part.

    Anyone else notice this, or am I being overly critical of the two? Did you like the manga? If so, who was your favorite character?

    RGU doesn't really seem like BSSM. Now Wedding Peach is a big rip off of Sailor Moon.

    Ah, Utena...born of the lovely and ever-so-easy-to-adore Oscar of Rose of Versailles. She is among the first of the women-turned-"prince" variety, and the obvious role model for Utena ^^

    I am not too sure about that. I have only seen a bit of it. But from what I have seen I think it has similarities. It is still different in its own way though. If you think about it, all magical girl anime have something in common and that is why they are in the same category/genre. Maybe I should watch a bit more of it. It might be a rip off Sailor Moon. Honestly I am still not sure. Anyone else have an opinion?

    I haven't seen too much of this anime/manga, but my friend is really into RGU. RGU didn't really catch my interest that much.

    from what i saw, i liked it. i didn't like the fact that she dressed in the boys' school uniform. that was a real turn-off. i still like it to a certain extent.

    The rings don't represent the person's individual powers... o_O The rings just mean they are duelists....

    Personally, I adore all of the Utena retellings. When I first started watching the anime several years ago, I was kinda "meh" about it... It seemed too silly and weird. But then I realized...there was MEANING to the weirdness. Well, to some of it. Some of it is just fluff. But the meaning that was there, and the plot beneath it all? It was really quite interesting. I fell in love with the anime. The movie broke me at first, but I even love it now to an exent (although I'm not pleased with how much they downplayed Akio's role in the movie). And the manga was instant love.

    I've read a few of the manga, but I have not yet had the pleasure of seeing the anime or movie. I, however, immensely enjoyed the manga. Dang it, I'm tired of all these main characters that are nothin' but damsels in distress. Bout time one of'em stepped up to the plate and took charge.

    One day I saw this little kid watching this and I thought it was really weird.
    I was like, "Isn't that a girl?(Utena) But she/he's dressed like a man. Why is she/he telling that girl that she/he loves her and she/he wants to be with her."
    It was really weird.
    I didn't discover the truth until I read the manga.
    And I don't think that girl was pretty, the girl the two people were fighting for.
    I forget her name....

    Revolutiornay Girl Utena have nothing to do with Sailor Moon...You may say it is a magical-girl anime but even that would be wrong. She have no real powers, she does not act as a super-heroine...(I have watched all the series, not the manga or the movie)...and it a great narrative. Anthy Himenya is one awesome character.
    it is a fantastic re-lecture of mythological narrative (thus the ultra-abusive allegory of the anime) perfectly disguised in the faery tale story (that is why the repetions, etc. Faery tales and mythological narratives use the repetition for they deal with a cyclical time-line)...nothing like the plain simple adventures of Sailor Moon.
