The first saga of the legendary shojo anime Revolutionary Girl Utena is finally available on Blu-ray for the first time ever!
“Never lose that strength or nobility, even when you grow up.” When Utena was just a child and in the depths of sorrow, she found salvation in those words. They were the words of a prince, who wrapped her in his rose-scented embrace and bestowed upon her both a ring and the promise that it would lead her to him again. She never forgot the encounter. In fact, she was so impressed that she aspired to be like the prince and also help those in need. Now a spirited teenager, Utena attends the prestigious Ohtori Academy. However, her strong sense of chivalry soon places her at odds with the school’s student council and thrusts her into a series of mysterious and dangerous duels against its members.
Revolutionary Girl Utena Collection 1 Student Council Saga contains episodes 1-12 of the TV series as well as the clean opening, clean closing 1, live action video for opening single, TV spot for opening single, and TV spots.
- Revolutionary Girl Utena has been both critically acclaimed and a fan favorite since its 1997 broadcast debut on TV Tokyo. The series is Directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara (Sailor Moon, Penguindrum, Sweet Blue Flowers) with series composition by Yoji Enokido (Ouran High Host Club, FLCL, Sailor Moon SuperS) and Anime Production by J.C. Staff (Honey and Clover, Slayers, Toradora!).
Utena has been described as one of the top five “best anime of all time” (Anime Insider magazine, among others), and the project also inspired animated film, manga and stage play adaptations.
The shoujo manga of the same name, written and illustrated by Chiho Saito, is currently published in North America by VIZ Media.
