the prince and her bride.
The apocalypse is visted upon her every weekend, over and over again.

This 1997 masterpiece is a testament to how the medium can be both beautiful and relevant, even fifteen years after its initial release.
“You all look down on me! Without a care in the world, you use the special gifts you were born with, and without a second thought, trample the rest of us!”
Revolutionary Girl Utena is amazing.
(youtube link to the duel because the bgm and voice acting in this episode is pretty much perfect.)
Girls are all Rose Brides, in the end.
Revolutionary Girl Utena left a huge impact on me, not only because of its messages and themes, but also in how they were conveyed. Amazing stuff.
Black roses, for the failed revolutionary.
A heart that yearns for eternity, too, could be considered beautiful.
A girl who cannot become a princess is doomed to become a witch.
-Revolutionary Girl Utena.
Just marathoned this masterpiece; a postmodern fairy tale about altruism, femininity and breaking the cycles of abuse and learned helplessness.
Heartbreaking and empowering.
