End of Utena: Apocalypse of Adolescence – Diary of an Anime Lived

NOTE: This post contains MAJOR SPOILERS for the Revolutionary Girl Utena movie. It is also slightly NSFW. A post in the Diary of an Anime Lived series.

End of Utena resonated with me in many ways. It’s message, it’s art, the lives of it’s characters – it did what made the series great and kept it more concentrated, poignant, and blatant, which I appreciated. It is a masterpiece, pure and simple, and I was glad that I could find a way to pay tribute to it’s art and message without sacrificing either. End of Utena will go down as one of my favorite anime, because it fills me with such a feeling that I cannot deny it’s impact. I hope that those feelings come through in this video.

I also wanted to make a special note of it’s ending. Was that the most awesome ending of an anime or what!? Hot, naked lesbians making out while laying on the back of a raging motorcycle? What more could I possibly ask for?

  2. It’s been years since I watched this movie but I still consider it a favorite. Absolutely brilliant. No other anime like Utena.

    The song used in the movie, “Toki ni ai wa…” is also still a favorite.

      • Rolling with the theme of commenting without talking about what was said: I’m assuming the wibbly-line-second-voice was digi too, and on that grounds figure that we still have not heard his True Voice(!).

        Also, anyone watching anime videos at work probably isn’t that bothered about the lesbians. It’s not like the dude looking over their shoulder was suddenly going to think ‘hey, now they’re naked! maybe this site isn’t serious internet research business after all’.
