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 13; 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.

Narrator:  Once upon a time...
Narrator:  ...there was a princess grieving over the deaths of her mother and father.
Narrator:  Before this princess appeared a prince traveling upon a white horse.
Narrator:  His appearance gallant, and his smile gentle, the prince enveloped the princess
Narrator:  in the scent of roses and wiped away her tears.
Prince:  "Little one bearing up alone under grief,
Prince:  please lose not thy strength and nobility when thou growest up."
Prince:  "As a token of this day, please retain this."
Princess:  "Pray, shall we meet once more?"
Prince:  "This ring should guide thee to me."
Narrator:  Was the ring from the prince meant as an engagement ring?
Narrator:  That part was good,
Narrator:  but because of the strength of her admiration for the prince,
Narrator:  the princess made up her mind to become a prince herself!
Narrator:  But is that really good for her?
title:  Plotting a Locus
A-ko:  I wonder, I wonder... do you know what I wonder?
B-ko:  I heard that meddlesome brave warrior won yet another duel.
A-ko:  Might is right!
B-ko:  And losers are bottomfeeders.
A-ko&B-ko:  ...and when she walks, she is as the lily.
A-ko:  But dear brave warrior...
B-ko:  Hey, you, no more sidetracking!
A-ko&B-ko:  I wonder, I wonder... Do you know what I wonder?
Touga:  If the world's shell does not break, we will die without being born.
Touga:  If the world's shell does not break, we will die without being born.
Touga:  If the world's shell does not break, we will die without being born.
Touga:  If the world's shell does not break, we will die without being born.
Touga:  If the world's shell does not break...
Akio:  You still haven't woken yet?
Akio:  Still here, unable to break the egg's shell?
Akio:  And even the Student Council President was defeated.
Akio:  In the end, she won her seventh trial, the Duel called "Self."
Akio:  The sight of her being injured while protecting the Rose Bride...
Akio:  ...brought back some nostalgic memory.
Akio:  I think even the Rose Bride was moved.
Akio:  And now, it seems you're building your hopes on her.
Akio:  No, that's not it.
Akio:  It was her first Duel, the one called "Friendship."
Akio:  Ever since that day, that moment when she happened to fight the captain of the Kendo Club,
Akio:  you've been pinning your hopes on her.
Utena:  You're the captain of the Kendo Club, right?
Utena:  You've got a duel with me today after school!
WWWW:  When Where Who Which
WWWW:  When Where Who Which
Saionji:  ...the power to revolutionize the world!
WWWW:  Flow of blood from the cage of my memory,
WWWW:  In the cradle of a thousand years of bliss.
Saionji:  You're pretty good... for a girl.
WWWW:  And I, an actor cast eternally
Saionji:  So you want to be the prince who saves the helpless princess?
Saionji:  Unfortunately...
WWWW:  as the Sphinx in the desert winter.
Utena:  Oh, no...
Utena:  That magical sword... is real?
WWWW:  Now you know the sadness
Saionji:  Really now, challenging the Sword of Dios with a simple bamboo practice sword?
Utena:  Sword of Dios?
WWWW:  of the stillborn flesh.
Saionji:  You don't know about the Sword of Dios? Who are you?
Saionji:  You, a prince on a white horse out to save a princess?
WWWW:  And I, a holy actor, cast eternally
Prince:  "Little one bearing up alone under grief,
WWWW:  as a dark shining Margineaux, cast into Hell.
Prince:  please lose not thy strength and nobility when thou growest up."
WWWW:  Glow!
Saionji:  What!?
WWWW:  Burn!
WWWW:  Cool down,
WWWW:  and sing!
Saionji:  Stupid bitch!
WWWW:  Born in this world,
WWWW:  born in an instant,
WWWW:  born all over again.
Saionji:  It can't be...
Saionji:  I've... lost?
Saionji:  Anthy...
Anthy:  Take it easy, Saionji...sempai.
Utena:  Ahh.. That was really weird, whatever happened back there.
Utena:  What was all that, anyway?
Utena:  Oh well, better just forget about it!
Utena:  Huh? You...
Anthy:  I've been waiting for you, Utena-sama.
Anthy:  I am the Rose Bride, and from today on, I am your flower.
Akio:  As you expected...
Akio:  she got engaged to the Rose Bride, and began to walk the Duelist's Path.
Akio:  And then, she faced her second trial, the Duel called "Choice."
Anthy:  It is the Rose Signet.
Anthy:  Anyone who has that ring is entitled to participate in the Duels.
Anthy:  So, since you are the current champion,
Anthy:  one by one, you will be challenged to Duels by the other bearers of the Rose Signet.
Utena:  You've gotta be kidding!
Utena:  No way I'm going to keep fighting those pointless duels!

Akio:  It was from that moment that your power,
Akio:  the Power of Dios, began to unseal itself at last.

Akio:  Certainly she is fascinating.
Akio:  She may even lead your power, the Power of Dios, to its complete rebirth.
Akio:  Her subsequent battles were also highly individual.

Akio:  But in seizing a miracle, it also seized them.

DS:  The pleasure principle, the Nirvana principle
DS:  Death's inevitability, dubbed "the light"
Juri:  Pathetic. You're already exhausted. But I'll have no mercy.
DS:  Without having to have lived,
DS:  Phenomenon of mobile life
Juri:  Isn't a miracle going to happen yet, prince?
DS:  In the cerebral universe
DS:  Shape of floating life
Juri:  That's quick!
Shiori:  But, I don't regret stealing him from you.
DS:  Glory, ephemery, hope for eternity!
Shiori:  You must hate me for being like this.
DS:  Incomplete returning to the primitive beginnings.

Akio:  Even after seven Duels, she is still a Duelist.
Akio:  It may be that she is the very one we've wished for.
Akio:  At this rate, it's possible that she'll reach the Duel called "Revolution."
Akio:  It may be that the day of your total release is at hand.
Akio:  Don't give me that look.
Akio:  We both look forward to that day, since we share a vested interest.
Akio:  But, a new stage is about to begin.
Akio:  I wonder how she will fight Duels from now on.
Utena:  Ouch! Hey, Chuchu!
Anthy:  I'm home, Utena-sama, Chuchu.
Utena:  Welcome back. Where have you been?
Anthy:  Utena-sama, the clouds are moving so quickly.
Anthy:  Utena-sama!
Anthy:  Oh, dear, what should I do?

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.

text:  Preview of Next Episode
Anthy:  Utena-sama, let me introduce my older brother to you.
Utena:  What? You have a brother?
Anthy:  My brother doesn't know that I'm the Rose Bride or about the Duelist's Code.
Anthy:  Please, Utena-sama, you must keep this a secret from him.
Anthy:  I don't want to burden him.
Utena:  But, suspicious people are after your brother's fiancee.
Utena:  Next time on Shoujo Kakumei Utena: The Boys of the Black Rose
Anthy:  The Absolute Destiny: Apocalypse.

A-ko:  Might is right!
  And losers are bottomfeeders.
  ...and when she walks, she is as the lily.

We know that the last sentence doesn't really make sense to you. The original Japanese is "Aruku Sugata wa Yuri no Hana," and we just faithfully translated it. This is actually a part of a saying. The complete saying is:
"Tateba shakuyaku, suwareba botan, aruku sugata wa yuri no hana."
A faithful translation would be:
"Standing, she is like a (herbaceous) peony; sitting, she is like a (tree) peony; and walking she is like a lily."
It's a stock phrase to describe such a radiant beauty that every movement adds to her charms. The reason why they say that phrase here is that...well, that's an open question.
