SCRIPT (episode 30; version
Well like, I said it was my first kiss, but she just ran away.
Wakaba: Saying it's your first kiss is pretty
guy: But saying it's your first makes a better
Wakaba: Look, people see right through that
kind of lie.
Wakaba: All it does is get her to start not
Utena: First kiss, huh?
Utena: I wonder if that's what that was.
title: The Barefoot Girl
Akio: I don't know if they came out well,
Utena: Wow! Akio-san, you really can do everything
Akio: Shouldn't you praise me after
you try it?
Utena: But like, guys who can bake cakes are
Wakaba: Hi! I'm Shinohara Wakaba!
Utena: Such great timing she has...
Wakaba: Did Akio-san bake this cake?
Akio: Please help yourself. I can't guarantee
how it'll taste.
Wakaba: Wow! Akio-san, you really can do everything
Utena: I just said that.
Akio: Please don't praise me until after you've
Wakaba: But like, guys who can bake cakes
are way rare.
Utena: I just said that too.
Utena: Look, Akio-san's already got a fiancee.
Wakaba: Hey, that doesn't matter where love's
Utena: Yeah right.
Akio: What're we talking about?
Wakaba: Oh, nothing at all!
Akio: Working on your feminine wiles?
Utena: Oh, 'course not.
Wakaba: If you keep being so uptight...
teacher: ...you'll never fall in love.
teacher: Behave more like a girl! I'm saying
this for your sake.
teacher: Wearing boy's clothing isn't the
slightest bit attractive.
Utena: But you know, everyone says this style's
teacher: What's this "everyone says"? All
that matters is good sense that I decide as guidance counselor!
Utena: Yeah, but...
teacher: Vice Principal, please tell her straight
teacher: You must abide by the rules. Girls
should wear nice, fluttering skirts.
Utena: Who thought that one up?
Akio: What seems to be the problem?
teacher: Oh my, Mr. Chairman.
teacher: What do you mean, "Akio-san"?!
Utena: Well, um, I...
Akio: Vice Principal.
teacher: Yes sir.
Akio: I'd like to attend tonight's Middle
School staff social.
teacher: Oh my my my, I've always wanted rub
shoulders and chat with the Chairman of the Board.
teacher: So, Mr. Chairman, err...regarding
the members of the inspection team of our sister campus in Amsterdam...
Akio: Ah yes. The formal announcement from
the selection committee may come out any day now.
teacher: I was wondering if, by any chance,
you could perhaps mention my name...
Akio: I'll keep that in mind.
Akio: Now, I have some business with this
girl. I'm borrowing her.
teacher: How fabulous...the Chairman's looks,
Akio: Oh, and take care not to constrict the
students too much with the rules.
Akio: I'm counting on you to offer guidance
that maximizes the student's independence.
Utena: What "business" did you have with me?
Akio: You dummy. I don't have any such thing.
Akio: I'm a fan of that valiant style of yours
Utena: It's not that great...
Akio: Besides, seeing you standing up for
your beliefs against those nagging teachers...
Akio: ...seemed somehow strong, and noble
Utena: Are you sure the Chairman of the Board
should be saying things like that?
Akio: Who cares? After all, you're my sister's
- no, my close friend.
Akio: Let's go.
Utena: Dummy! What're you thinking. He's already
Utena: Hey, I've been seeing that car around
a lot lately.
Akio: It's a popular model this year.
Akio: Don't you like it?
Utena: No, that's not it...
Akio: Hello, Shinohara-san.
Wakaba: Hi there! Um, could you call me "Wakaba"
instead of "Shinohara-san"?
Wakaba: Hey, what's with sneaking out here
all alone with him? Gettin' pretty involved, aren't we?
Wakaba: You about to go on a date or something?
Utena: Of course not. We're just bumped into
Wakaba: Really really?
Utena: Damn straight!
Wakaba: In that case, Akio-san, could I go
driving with you?
Utena: Hey now.
Wakaba: I'm sure meeting you like this today
must be fate or something.
Utena: You've been coming over to play every
Wakaba: Pretty please with sugar on top! I'll
remember it my whole life!
Akio: Well, let's see. If around two hours
is alright, I think I can spend time with you.
Utena: Man, talk about pushy.
Wakaba: Uh-uh, you stay here.
Utena: How come?
Wakaba: Cause...a date is something two people
do by themselves.
Wakaba: Right, Akio-san?
Utena: Oh really.
Utena: Well, later.
Wakaba: See ya.
Wakaba: Ah, what a nice memory.
Utena: Oh, really.
Wakaba: The ocean was so pretty, the breeze
felt so good...
Wakaba: It was the bestest possible date.
Utena: Yeah yeah.
Utena: Anyways, I think you know already,
Wakaba: Already got a fiancee, right?
Wakaba: And here I was in such a good mood
Wakaba: It was just a drive. Nothing more.
Utena: You sure about that?
Wakaba: Ah ha, well look who's jealous!
Utena: No way in hell!
Anthy: Good morning.
Utena: Oh, good morning, Himemiya...
Anthy: Good morning, Utena-sama.
Utena: It couldn't be.
Utena: It just couldn't be.
Utena: Who I love is my Prince...
Utena: Nobody but the Prince who gave me this
Utena: Why am I this...
Utena: Why? WHY?
Utena: Why is my heart pounding this hard?
guy: You alright?
Utena: Yeah, nothing major.
guy: But what's up messing up like that? It
ain't like you.
Utena: Sorry 'bout that.
guy: Watch out, okay?
Utena: Something's definitely wrong with me.
Anthy: Are you okay, Utena-sama?
Utena: Sort of... Sorry for the trouble.
Anthy: Not at all. But why don't we go put
some ice on it in the infirmary?
Utena: Say, Himemiya?
Utena: You and I...
Anthy: Brother, Utena-sama is...
Akio: What's wrong?
Akio: Now, hop in. You should have that looked
at properly at the hospital.
Utena: Sorry about this.
Akio: Take care of things here.
Utena: Why can't Himemiya ride too?
Akio: A date is something two people do by
Akio: Your best friend taught me that. Am
Akio: Later, Anthy.
Anthy: Farewell, brother.
Utena: Um, Akio-san?
Utena: I'm really sorry about all of this,
making you go all the way to the hospital and all.
Akio: Don't worry so much. We're already just
like family aren't we?
Utena: The ceremony's next spring, right?
Utena: Kanae-san's such a wonderful person.
Akio: Well, here we are.
Utena: Thank you.
Akio: Does it hurt?
Utena: I-I'm just fine.
Akio: The doctor said you shouldn't walk around
Utena: Wha-? No, I'm fine. I can walk.
Akio: You shouldn't force yourself. I'll carry
Utena: You're a playboy, aren't you?
Utena: I mean, you seem really good at making
women feel good.
Utena: You're sort of, not very Chairman-like,
or maybe...kind of bad.
Akio: Well, you don't do what people tell
you, and go around wearing guy's clothes.
Akio: We may just be two of a kind.
Utena: But I'm doing it because of my Prince.
Utena: I want to meet this Prince I loved
in my past...and so...
Akio: I'll carry you on my back. Or would
you prefer in my arms?
shadow: Those shoes, those shoes, those shoes!
shadow: Throw out those shoes at once!
shadow: Why should I do that to my precious
shadow: If you wear those you'll have to go
on dancing until you die!
shadow: There are things...one does...even
if one knows...they're wrong!
shadow: After all...don't you have...the same
red shoes...as mine?
shadow: I own them, that's all. I'll
never put them on.
shadow: You won't put them on, but you have
shadow: You have them, but you won't put them
shadow: Your life's too short for that!
note: ["hakanai" = "don't put on" / "fleeting
Anthy: Aren't you hungry?
Anthy: It didn't look like you touched most
of your dinner.
Utena: Oh. I wasn't that hungry.
Utena: See, about Wakaba.
Utena: Wakaba said a while ago that there's
no such thing as a "wrong" love.
Utena: That love wasn't something you can
Utena: But there really are people you mustn't
fall in love with, aren't there.
Anthy: I don't know much about that.
Anthy: But, I think that just like Wakaba-san
said, "love" has a part of it that you can't control.
Utena: You really think so?
Utena: Come to think of it, do you have anybody
Anthy: Yes, I do. A Prince.
Touga: Well my goodness. Tenjou Utena, is
Touga: The owner of the glass slipper...
Akio: That's right. You've fallen for her,
Touga: It sure was a shock losing that Duel
Touga: No, it wasn't losing the duel, it was
realizing there was a girl who could shake my way of thinking.
Touga: That was the first time anything's
ever made me reconsider how I've led my life.
Akio: You've got good eyes. She'll be a good
Touga: That's right, Mr. Chairman.
Akio: You also didn't eat very much yesterday...are
you feeling ill?
Utena: No, um...
Akio: What's the matter?
Utena: Yeah, "what's the matter" indeed?
Akio: Kanae-san. How unusual to see you at
Kanae: I can't catch you except at this time,
Akio: I've been busy lately.
Kanae: Busy stargazing?
Anthy: Good morning, Kanae-san.
Kanae: Good morning, Anthy-chan.
Kanae: I swear, when will you ever call me
Kanae: Oh, you're...Utena-san, right?
Akio: Some breakfast?
Kanae: No thanks.
Kanae: Besides, my mother's here.
Akio: Your mother?
mother: It's been a while, Akio-san.
Akio: Mother, what brings you here?
mother: I have something to discuss with you.
Akio: Regarding what matter?
Akio: I believe the performance of my duties
is proceeding without incident.
Akio: Could it be something that cannot be
discussed over the phone?
mother: Akio-san...have you been avoiding
my daughter, Kanae?
mother: Your position at this school is based
on your getting married to my daughter.
mother: And don't forget that engagements
can be canceled at any time.
Akio: I'm being good to Kanae-san. So much
that I'm thinking of naming a comet after her when I find one.
Akio: Besides. Look. This is Kanae-san's favorite
Akio: I'm always wearing the cologne Kanae-san
likes, and when we're all alone together...
Akio: And how is the real Chairman doing?
mother: Who cares about that man.
mother: You. You're my only Prince.
Wakaba: Hey hey, Utena! I finally saw Akio's
fiancee, Ohtori Kanae.
Wakaba: She's so wonderful. Beautiful, and
smart-looking, plus she's a rich girl...
Wakaba: I guess it feels like I just can't
Utena: I'm in love with my Prince!

Utena: Himemiya, you're type-AB, right?
Utena: Let's see, elusive and seldom reveal
their true feelings huh?
Anthy: And you're type-B, right Utena-sama?
Anthy: Type-B's are self-centered and prone
Utena: Yeah, sorry okay.
Utena: By the way, how come Nanami's staying
in our room?
Anthy: Because Nanami-san's a type-B.
Utena: Well, she is sort of misconception-prone...
