Just started this anime.
Why is Utena so self righteous and irritating? Holy shit, she's one of the most unlikeable protagonists I've seen in a while.

>Is it worth my time
You're seriously pissing me off. How about you just watch it you fucking retard.
It's a masterpiece, however it does drag and I was almost close to dropping it until I got to episode 10. But it all depends on whether you're retarded or not like >>120560917 who probably thinks Eva is overrated too.
It's a matter of taste.
They were entertaining but for me it seemed like a cop-out to have everyone fight Utena 3 times, where they'd be friends at first them someone comes in and brainwashes them and then they have to fight again
because she's a knight and she has to be the voice of reason to all the cesspool that is the student council
It's not a cop out because each duel provides some for of development for the conflict of each student council member, and each of those conflicts, in turn, give a different view of the main theme of the show.
Sure, it could have been 26 episodes instead of 39, but we would have lost some level of thematic development in the process. And since the show is enjoyable anyways, I don't see why people wouldn't want more.
Enjoy Ikuhara retarded sense of humor.
