Storyline

A handsome youth by the name of Tenjo Utena transfers to the distinguished Ohtori Academy. But Utena's true identity is actually a girl, who due to a certain event from her past, has decided to cross-dress in order to fulfill the highest of ambitions. But at Ohtori Academy she meets none other than her old lover, Kiryuu Touga, who wears the Mark of the Rose on his finger, which is the sign of a duellist. Because of her possessing the exact same ring, Utena is challenged by the student body vice president, Saionji Kyouichi, to a duel in the floating rose garden. The reason for this duel is none other than the acquisition of the "Rose Bride"'s body, for with it comes the "power to revolutionize the world." Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

Utena is wonderful
4 December 2001 | by (Christchurch, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I first saw this at a friend's place. It has quickly joined other anime greats such as Neon Genesis: Evangelion and Ghost in The Shell (to name some well known titles) as a Personal Favourite. The characters both male and female are beautiful and the soundtrack is both striking and complimentary.

I fear however that the plot may seem a little too tenuous for a western audience and they may not understand what is happening. I do look forward to seeing more of this sort of thing readily available outside of Japan. :)
