|The creepy side of the story clashes up with the normal slice of life school scenes... |
The day of Revolution... Utena remembers her Prince's words... takes her ring off.
That ring will lead you back here, one day.*drops the ring on the ground*
Saionji tells Touga he got a farewell letter from End of the World.
I bet she's recieved a letter from him as well. But her's would be a very different letter. However, the revolution doesn't interest her.
So, the power of dios will remain sealed... and the revolution won't happen?Touga:
Who knows. I don't know what End of the World's ultimate goal is.
Do you think Utena knows by now... who End of the World is?
Akio asks Utena why she still isn't wearing her ring.
I've started to think it doesn't suit me.Akio starts saying stuff like she's acting very girlish tonight.. and that he thinks girlish things suit her...
Can I tell you a secret? The stars actually don't interest me at all...
Utena's usual bedtime talk with Himemiya... she's talking about her date with Akio... that Akio told her she was very girlish.. but doesn't know what it means to be called "girlish".
In the end, all girls are like the Rose Bride...She then asks Utena about the letter she got.
If you go to that castle, you'll meet your prince.
Touga, Saionji, and Akio modeling on the car:
I don't think Utena Tenjou will pass through the Rose Gate.
She has no reason to.
She never wanted to be... the one who brings the world revolution. She's chosen you, a real man, over her fantasy prince.
She has to make the choice.. and the choice is not yet made.
Next morning... Himemiya tells Utena that Akio has fallen in love with her.. and that she wants everything to stay the same as it is now... Utena rips her letter to shreds... later, Miki and Jury go and talk to Utena... they say they got a letter from End of the World, saying that Utena is the one who will bring Revolution to the World... they casually ask her what she'll do with the power while they bat a badminton thing around.
In the end, all I've been doing is playing prince.Jury:
Come to think of it, even though I'm in the student council, all I've only been thinking about myself... What are you going to do with Anthy? Do you love her?Utena tries to explain how her feelings for Himemiya are different from Miki's.. but can't explain it.
Nanami, who knows about Akio and Himemiya's true nature, tries to warn Utena to stay away from them for her own good. She's wearing her normal school clothes, and says she's resigned from the student council.
Thanks for the advice.Nanami:
You're so dense! Talking to you makes me do crazy things!Utena:
Blood type-B people like me tend to be stubborn in conversations.Nanami:
I am too.
I've been thinking about you a lot lately, Miss Tenjou.
I thought you were in love with Himemiya.Utena:
Can't I change my mind?
I just noticed they're all only talking when the birdie gets to them... how poetic.
I was wondering if you could give me a picture of yourself.Utena:
I figured I'd put it in my new locket.Miki:
Uh-oh, I think a dangerous rival just appeared.(laughter)...
You people are idiots.
...The Kashira Shadow Players
oh wow... that name...
Do you know? Do you know? Have you heard the news?... their weird banter is just as hard to parse out as ever... it's very symbolic...
Anthy is in the car with her brother.. in pain..
Does it hurt, Anthy? Well I'm not the one causing it. It's the world!...
Himemiya, what do you plan to do in the future?
As long as I can raise roses, I'll be happy.Himemiya starts talking about poison.. then mentions that she's the one who made that cookie in Utena's mouth...
I put poison in your tea....
You don't say......
This tea is delicious.Utena:
So's this cookie.
Miss Utena.. where will you be in 10 years?Utena:
I don't know, but I hope we can still drink tea together, like we are now.
... then Utena dreams about Himemiya trying to commit suicide... or is it really a dream?
Don't we have a date to have tea and laugh together in 10 years?!
Next, Touga and Saionji are talking to Utena... they figure out that she's doing it for Himemiya...
Didn't you know? Whoever believes in true friendship is a fool.Utena:
Didn't you know? I AM a fool.
Himemiya puts Utena's letter back together and reads it out:
The time has come. When you pass through the Rose Gate, the path to the castle will open. There, you gain the power to bring the world revolution. And there, we will meet once more. Signed, Your Prince.
Himemiya shows Utena the patched up letter...
There's still time. You can still turn back.Utena shows that her ring is on... "Let's go."
Utena still trusts her... but should she?
But Utena, don't you know, the truth about this horrible world?</spoiler>
Akio... one thing I never noticed before is that he has long hair whenever he's in his car, in his "End of the World" form... Himemiya also has long hair when she's alone with him.
