What is revolutionary Girl Utena? Simply put, one of the best animes ever. Let me first say that Utena is not a show about lesbians, really. I would go as far as to say that incestuous desire and incest play a bigger role in the show than homosexuality. Like many shojo anime, Utena is heavily inspired by fairy tales with princes, princesses, and red convertibles. However, in Utena there are numerous prince and princess, and princess who want to become princes, and probably some the other way around. Yes, it’s a mess, but that’s the way Utena rolls. Reason to watch this show? Nanami: the overdramatic incestuous girl always looks like she is either really high, or has a stick up her ass. Now discuss.
