I have just watched The Romance of the Dancing Girls, episode 32 of Revolutionary Girl Utena. Twitch. Twitch.At this point there are only seven episodes left. However I’m suddenly wondering if I want to see them.
Utena has always been surreal, but never quite this abusive in the relationships involved, not even in the episodes where Nanami was the designated chew toy.
Granted that the series has been implying more than it shows, but the implications have been disturbing enough.
It is possible that I’m overreacting, and having come this far I will finish the series.
But at this point there is a very real chance that my end of series review will be more rant than anything else.
