Oh look, time for alt text! Uhoh, Wakaba's not gonna like that... SMIRK FOR ME, SAIONJI God this layout was hell on earth with the colors. Kiddie Utena. Awww. Hey, no looking up Anthy's skirt, you! I love this shot of her. It's just so...I dunno. Originally this was Touga and Saionji as kids. Then I remembered Saionji's not the main character. HOLY FUCK IT'S TOUGA Hi, I'm Juri, and I'm a lesbian. Utena looks rather young in this shot. Huh. SO HOT
You can't see, but Miki's looking at a porn mag. Nanami, you totally missed the point. Go join them. Duh. HOTTEST IMAGE EVAR HOLY Yes, that's Touga again. This is just the first thing I think of when someone says 'Touga' There really aren't a lot of great shots of Mikage. Such an injustice. Believe it or not, I spent half an hour on this layout before I linked the photograph theme to Akio. Don't I feel dumb. GIOVANNA SERIOUSLY STOP LISTENING TO EVANESCENCE I'm tired, but I have to be awake for the next six hours. Boo. Thai food is delicious. I seeee you theeere, farther awaaaaaay Even his sleeve is hot. And let's not even START with his neck.

SCRIPT (episode 5; version 1.0; 9/9/1998)

OP:  Heroically, with bravery
OP:  I'll go on with my life,
OP:  just a long, long time.
OP:  But if the two of us should get split up
OP:  by whatever means,
OP:  let go of me,
OP:  Take my revolution.
Title:  Utena - La Fillette Revolutionnaire
OP:  In the sunny garden, we held each other's hands,
OP:  drew close together and soothed each other with the words,
OP:  "Neither of us will ever fall in love again."
OP:  Everytime
OP:  Into this photograph of us
OP:  smiling cheek to cheek,
OP:  I took a bit of loneliness,
OP:  and crammed it inside.
OP:  Revolution!
OP:  Even in my dreams, even through my tears,
OP:  even though I'm being hurt,
OP:  reality is approaching now, frantically.
OP:  What I want now is to find out
OP:  just where I belong,
OP:  and my self-worth, up through today.
OP:  Heroically, I'll throw away
OP:  my clothes 'til I'm nude,
OP:  like the roses dancing all around me, whirling free.
OP:  But if the two of us should get split up
OP:  by whatever means,
OP:  I swear to you, I will change the world.

girl:  1 Hey, hey! Look! This is amazing!
girl:  2 What's amazing?
girl:  1 Look! Captain Juri and Micky!
girl:  3 It's amazing, all right!
girl:  1 Didn't I tell you it was amazing?
girl:  3 Too amazing!
girl:  1 That's to be expected, though.
girl:  1 They're both national level players.
girl:  2 Ah, that figures.
girl:  1 Hey, hey, by the way...
girls:  We saw it! It was amazing! Cool!
Juri:  Well, you've finally defeated me.
Juri:  You've improved.
Miki:  No, I'm not good enough.
Miki:  I've yet to reach perfection.
Juri:  Well, imperfection IS your strength.
Juri:  It's a power because of your purity.
Juri:  Your sword always has the force of your sincerity.
Juri:  And today, it seems to be stronger than ever.
Juri:  Is it because of the girl whose answer sheet you're correcting?
Miki:  Wh-what are you talking about?
Juri:  But, I don't think your sword is meant for real fighting.
Title:  The Sunny Garden - Finale -
Miki:  Here you are.
Anthy:  Thank you.
Miki:  This looks like that garden.
Utena:  Hey, Chuchu, wait!
Utena:  Oops. Guess I'm not wanted here.
Miki:  The sound...
Miki:  The sound that I've been seeking...
Utena:  This is the same music Himemiya was playing last night, isn't it?
Miki:  Yes.
Miki:  It's "The Sunny Garden," which my sister and I wrote when we were very young.
Utena:  You wrote it? But it's a famous composition, isn't it?
Miki:  My twin sister and I used to play with the piano like a toy since we were old enough to understand such things...
Miki:  In that garden...
Miki:  Our playing always used to surprise the grown-ups in the neighborhood.
Utena:  So, you siblings were both child geniuses.
Miki:  Now I realize that all of my happiness rested in that garden. But...
Miki:  But...
Utena:  But?
Miki:  But I ruined it.
Miki:  I ruined it all by myself!
Kozue:  A concert?
Miki:  Yup. Next Thursday, everyone's coming to see us.
Kozue:  But, going out in front of all those strangers...
Kozue:  All those strangers scare me.
Miki:  It'll be okay, really. I'll be right there with you.
Miki:  All you have to do is to play the piano with me, just like we always have.
Miki:  There's nothing to be afraid of.
Doctor:  He has the measles.
Doctor:  Well, one week of bedrest and he should be fine.
Man:  Okay, dear, it's time to go to the concert hall.
Man:  Everyone's been waiting. Give it your best shot for your brother's sake, okay?
Sis:  Onii-chan!
Sis:  onii-chan... onii-chan...
Sis:  onii-chan... onii-chan...
Sis:  ONII-CHA-----N!
Man:  Without warning, she fled the stage and hid herself until dark.
Man:  For some time after that she wouldn't say a word.
Miki:  After that, she stopped playing the piano.
Miki:  Until then, I had never realized how much I loved her piano...
Miki:  and how much I loved that garden.
Miki:  No matter how much my technique improved,
Miki:  I could never capture that quality of her playing.
Miki:  And that's all I continue to play for.
Miki:  But HER playing... Himemiya-san's has it.
Utena:  So you're the "Love is blind" type, then.
Miki:  I've finally found my "glow."
Utena:  Is that supposed to be a confession of love, then?
Utena:  How about it, Himemiya?
Utena:  Do you like younger boys?
Anthy:  Well, I am your bride, Utena-sama.
Utena:  Hey, Himemiya. Would you stop saying "I am your bride, Utena-sama" all the time?
Anthy:  But still, I am engaged to you, Utena-sama.
Utena:  Now look!
Utena:  It's not like I agreed that you're my bride!
Utena:  It's crazy to make a girl a bride of the winner of a duel.
Utena:  I won't stand for a system that ignores a person's personality!
touga:  If the egg's shell does not break, the chick will die without being born.
touga:  We are the chick; the egg is the world.
touga:  If the world's shell does not break, we will die without being born.
touga:  Break the world's shell!
touga,juri:  For the sake of revolutionizing the world!
Juri:  What is today's meeting for?
Juri:  A letter from the Ends of the World hasn't arrived yet, has it?
Touga:  Well...
Touga:  We have all been meeting and carrying out the letters' instructions.
Touga:  But today, an urgent motion was made.
Miki:  The urgent motion is this: I propose the dissolution of the Student Council.
Touga:  This is rather sudden...
Miki:  It's ridiculous to try to win Himemiya-san with the Duels.
Miki:  I think this kind of thing should not be allowed after all.
Miki:  No matter how great the power we might receive, this system,
Miki:  which can disregard Himemiya Anthy's very personality, should not be tolerated.
Juri:  Love changes a person.
Juri:  I see.
Juri:  It was HER exam paper that you corrected...
Touga:  Sometimes youthfulness is such an obstacle
Touga:  that you can't see what you want.
Miki:  But isn't all we're doing just ruining something vital to humanity anyway?
Juri:  Break the world's shell.
Juri:  ...for the sake of revolutionizing the world.

Kozue:  Ow...
Kozue:  Oh!
Kozue:  That wasn't very friendly.
Miki:  Get out of my way.
Kozue:  You dropped your score book.
Kozue:  So, should we give it another try?
Miki:  I expect nothing of you.
Miki:  As if you had the will to play. What are you doing here?
Kozue:  Nothing special... but, I'm free to do what I want.
Kozue:  The music classroom isn't just for playing with the piano.
girl:  Morning! How are you?
Kozue:  Morning! I'm fine.
Touga:  Morning, Kaoru Miki-kun.
Touga:  Your sister is as pretty as you are.
Touga:  And just as agreeable...
Anthy:  Good morning.
Touja:  If something is really important to you, seize it and protect it with your own hands,
Touja:  lest someone should steal it, Micky.
Touja:  Even if the Student Council were dissolved, there'd still be Duelists after the Rose Bride.
Touja:  Only the one who is engaged to her can do as he pleases with her.
Miki:  "Do as he pleases..."
Miki:  "Do as he pleases..."
Miki:  Himemiya-san, when did you start playing the piano?
Anthy:  I don't know. It was too long ago to remember very clearly.
Miki:  Really?
Miki:  You must have been as cute as an angel when you were very young.
Miki:  My sister's piano was really wonderful.
Miki:  I won't lose it this time.
Miki:  I swear it!
Miki:  Do you like playing the piano?
Anthy:  Yes.
Miki:  Would you play for me again?
Anthy:  If Utena-sama allows me...
Miki:  How about tomorrow?
Anthy:  If Utena-sama allows me...
Miki:  Well, is Tenjou-sempai's permission required for everything you do?
Anthy:  Certainly, since I am the Rose Bride.
Miki:  Well then...
Miki:  if Tenjou-sempai told you to quit the piano, would you?
Anthy:  Of course.
Anthy:  The one I'm engaged to can do as he pleases with me.
Touga:  Only the one who is engaged to her can do as he pleases with her.
Touga:  If something is really important to you, seize it and protect it with your own hands,
Touga:  lest someone should steal it, Micky.
Touga:  There's no end to Duelists after the Rose Bride.
Miki:  Don't worry.
Miki:  I'll protect that quality of your playing.
Anthy:  Thank you, thank you.
Wakaba:  When is your make-up exam?
Utena:  Next week.
Utena:  I guess... everything is gonna be OK, thanks to a great tutor.
Wakaba:  Eh? Who is your tutor?
Girl1:  It's Micky, it's Micky!
Girl1:  I wonder what he's doing here.
Girl1:  He's stopped.
Utena:  Hi! If you're looking for Himemiya, she's probably in the greenhouse.
Miki:  Actually, I've business with you today, Tenjou-sempai.
Utena:  I'm doing okay. Linear functions, simultaneous equations, and stuff.
Wakaba:  So, your tutor is...
Utena:  Yep.
Miki:  Today after school, I'll be waiting for you at the arena.
Miki:  I'll be waiting for you.
Boss:  Behold this vast expanse of ocean!
Boss:  Bringing a hundred men with me, I have set sail on the seven seas!
Boss:  I am a pirate.
Boss:  All the world's riches are now in my hands.
Henchman:  I wonder, I wonder, but Boss?
Henchman:  Why's your treasure chest missing ONLY what you want?
Boss:  What I really want?
Henchman:  Cos... That's why ya can't quit being a pirate boss, ain't it?
boss:  What I really want...
Henchman:  Boss, what you really want... what you really want is...
Boss:  What I really want is....
Henchman:  Oops! Boss, we've sprung a leak.

Utena:  So, it's come to this, Micky...
Miki:  I have to get that music back.
Miki:  Therefore, whatever it takes, I must have the Bride
Utena:  It suits you better to sit down at the piano.
Juri:  Definitely.
Anthy:  O roses of the noble castle...
Anthy:  O Power of Dios that slumbers within me...
Anthy:  Harken unto thy master and reveal to us...
Utena:  ...the power to revolutionize the world!
Miki:  The Rose Bride will be mine,
Miki:  even if I have to hurt you!
Spira:  The theatre,
Spira:  gifted spirits,
Spira:  a collective phenomenon.
Miki:  Do you like playing the piano?
Anthy:  Yes.
Spira:  The theatre,
Miki:  She will be mine, without fail.
Spira:  gifted characters,
Spira:  a phantasmic reality.
Spira:  Operating table,
Spira:  a shipwreck,
Spira:  pure drama... spira mirabilis
Spira:  Still spiraling,
Spira:  transforming,
Spira:  in the vortex. spira mirabilis
Utena:  He's good...
Spira:  in Scipio's dream
Miki:  I'd figured as much.
Miki:  This is something I'd expect from someone who beat Saionji-san twice.
Spira:  The theatre
Spira:  illusory spirits,
Spira:  movement of immortality
Spira:  The theatre,
Miki:  You're good.
Spira:  illusory characters,
Utena:  Gee, thanks.
Miki:  But I will get the Bride's piano.
Spira:  structure of immortality
Utena:  Like this?

Spira:  Dying just to live once more.
Spira:  spira mirabilis
Miki:  Her eyes are telling me...
Miki:  that she wants to be set free.
Spira:  in the vortex of miracles.
Miki:  I will protect you...
Spira:  mai mai mai mai
Miki:  I will protect your beautiful sound, Himemiya-san!
Spira:  mai mai mai mai
Utena:  Let's settle this!
Spira:  Never-ending theatre
Spira:  On the geometric stage
Miki:  I won't be beaten! She believes in me!
Spira:  of life and the mystery of death,
Anthy:  There! Utena-sama, get him!
Spira:  Exeunt, all!
Spira:  Death rebirth death rebirth death rebirth death rebirth
Spira:  Death rebirth death rebirth death rebirth death rebirth
Spira:  Death rebirth death rebirth death rebirth!
Utena:  Now you should have nothing to complain of.
Miki:  Is there no one who will be my "glow?"
Miki:  Anyone?
Anthy:  Thank you for everything.
Anthy:  Would you tutor me again?
girl:  Are you sure you used to play the piano?
girl:  Even I could do better.
Kozue:  Well, I never had the talent.
Kozue:  nor the interest...
girl:  So why were you playing?
Kozue:  When I was very young,
Kozue:  there was a boy next door who often gave me love letters,
Kozue:  saying "I love your piano playing."
Kozue:  He had the mistaken idea that I could play the piano well.
Kozue:  Since I'd always played with my brother,
Kozue:  people thought that I was as good as he was.
Kozue:  He was such a genius that no matter how badly I played, he could cover for it.
Kozue:  But when we had a concert,
Kozue:  he came down with a fever and it all fell apart.
Kozue:  It came out that I couldn't do anything by myself.
girl:  Your brother is so cool, though.
Kozue:  He sure is.
Miki:  Tenjou-sempai.
Utena:  Micky.
Miki:  I wasn't concentrating enough yesterday.
Miki:  But next time, I won't lose.
Utena:  Come on...

ED:  Missing truth and forever
ED:  Kissing love and true your heart
ED:  Embrace me with your true arms
ED:  The key to open up tomorrow is reality
ED:  I want to keep on destroying lies.
ED:  Even if we keep on talking,
ED:  you still won't ever see.
ED:  Excuses really suit adults
ED:  who hang on to old stories.
ED:  Because unchosen angels
ED:  have no need for wings.
ED:  Missing truth and forever,
ED:  Kissing love and true your heart,
ED:  I will like tomorrow's new me.
ED:  At least I believe so; I want to believe it,
ED:  so I want to keep lies hating me.

Title:  Preview of Next Episode
Utena:  Lately, it looks like someone's trying to kill Nanami.
Anthy:  Oh, my...
Utena:  Don't "Oh, my!" me!
Utena:  They say that animals were involved in all the incidents,
Utena:  which makes it look like YOU are the criminal!!
Anthy:  But, Utena-sama...
Anthy:  Nanami-san looks like she's having fun, playing with the wild horse.
Utena:  She's not playing with it, she's running from it!
Anthy:  Oh, my!
Utena:  Next time on Shoujo Kakumei Utena: Nanami-sama, Beware!
Anthy:  The Absolute Destiny: Apocalypse.

Henchman:  I wonder, I wonder, but Boss?
The original Japanese is "Kashira, Kashira, Demo Kashira?" The first two "kashira"s are the sentence ending word that means "I wonder," but the last one is the Japanese word for "head", or "boss" in this context. The two words sound different to Japanese speakers' ears because of the pitches: the former HI-LO-LO, the latter LO-HI-HI. And of course, this sentence is intended to be a pun.

Spira:  in Scipio's dream
That's the only name of a celebrity we could find for the Japanese "suki pio."

1. Publius Cornelius S. Aemilianus Africanus Minor Numantius; 185-129BC; Roman General. (An adopted child of the firstborn child of 2)
2. Publius Cornelius S. Africanus Major; 236-184BC; Roman General.
But we do not know how they are related to the lyrics. Did they make Spira Mirabilis Theater? If you have any idea, let us know.

Spira:  mai mai mai mai
"maimai" is a Japanese word for "snail," and it seems to fit in the context. But we decided to treat it as chant and not to translate into English.
