I recently finished watching Revolutionary Girl Utena (I own all 3 parts of Nozomi's Remastered DVD Editions) and the end of it all actually shocked me like hell, yet it made sense and it was fun. The movie however didn't and was all kinds of bananas, especially in terms of the plot.
@EquitasInvictus: Could be, but it's totally lazy regardless. Also, the stuff about last year was why I tagged the "Dark Past" concept, but Dark Middle Chapter could work as a seperate concept. Found a thread about it, but it's been under a month since the last post.
@Claude: Yeah, it's relatable, but sadly some guys my age (Upper 20's) still have trouble with such a thing. XD
