No.

She died for me the moment she allowed that womanizer to rape her.
>>
>>111438696
She turned into a car/motorcycle and Anthy rode her into the sunset.

How is consensual sex rape anon?
>>
>>111438696
no man, it{s like evangelion, they were aliens all along, the revolution is get to the first ancient race
>>
The fact that so many people (probably young male teens) think that scene was anything other than rape just shows how fucking shit our education into consent really is.

I mean, that was such a textbook example of rape. A realistic rape, not scary-man-jumping-out-of-bushes. It ticked every single box other than 'victim is drunk/unconscious'.
>>
>>111444272
It couldn't be rape, because that would be against Akio's plan. He wanted Utena to loose her nobility, it had to be consensual for that to happend.
>>
>>111439289
>allowed that womanizer to rape her.
>allowed to rape
>allowed

That's not how it works.
>>
>>111438696
NO but her VA did.
>>
>>111444623
It was statutory rape. She was 14 and he was an adult. And not even an 18-year-old adult; more like an 1800-year-old one.
>>
>>111444272
Obvious baiting but yeah to some extent I agree. Really what the states needs is a conditionally lowered age of consent, proper sex ed, and actual differentiation between sexual abuse and sexual harassment.

"Emotional rape", getting called sexy, threats of violence, are all things that victim can act and react upon, its different than forced intercourse.
>>
No. She broke the world's shell and revolutionized it. Obviously.

>>111444272

Well, if you consider Utena was 14 and Akio was an adult then yeah, she couldn't actually give consent. But I don't really view that scene as rape so much as emotional manipulation (is there a difference? I don't know, maybe). Akio basically did the same shit to Touga, Saoinji and his own sister. I will agree it was pretty rape-y and Utena's dead eyes absolutely infuriated me.

Too soon.

To speak on topic... I don't know if Utena died. I more or less interpreted the ending as Utena freeing Anthy from her role as the Witch, which was interesting.

Rather than prince saving princess from witch, it was the princess saving the witch from the prince.

This one?

I wish Utena didn't have the worst pacing of any show I've actually managed to finish.

The last third is fantastic, but fuck everything else. They never even gave me closure on the twins.
>>
>>111448034
>They never even gave me closure
That's the point.
>>
>>111447888
That is the tumblr one. There was an /a/ one.
>>
>>111448034
Nope.jpeg Pacing was great.
>>
>>111448196
Well it did seems shitty, but that is something not exclusive to tumblr.
>>
>>111448173
Everyone else had closure though. It wasn't really the point of the twins at all to not have closure either. They just forgot.
>>
>>111448034

If you look closely enough at the finale, they do. Miki is done trying to recapture his childhood and is focusing on the future, Kozue is watching him with Tsuwabuki without going full yandere, and they're both hanging out in the piano room with no problem. They're both moving on and recovering.

Pacings was terrible. All the plot was left in the last third. Not to mention the repetitive battles. From all the stupid battles in the show only three were worth shit. And one non-battle were the kid refuses.
>>
>>111448961
But that happened without any actual development.
>>
>>111449015

Your opinions are shit.
>>
>>111449105
Just like Utena.
>>
>>111449095

By that logic, Juri and Shiori never got development either.

>>111449204
Juri definitely did. The episode with Ruka was great closure for her and also had the best guy in the show.

Shiori was just an addendum to Juri.
>>
>>111438991

This is hilarious.

no she graduated by finally growing up when she realized she could never be a prince and put himeya above herself showing maturity

That's a work of art.
