Hey, /a/, Ikuhara is working on a remastered version of "Shoujo Kakumei Utena"
Is this awesome y/y ?
Oh god yes!
Where is Utenasheepmug.jpg when you need it?
Oh, and yes.
Remastered? You mean digitally enhanced?
Fabulous gays in high definition? Don't know if want...
That makes it even more DO WANT
CARS IN HD?
Mikage is moe.
You mean the fabulosu TITS of delicious little brown 14 year olds
What the hell do you mean? Do want.
Holy! I thought Ikuhara was dead. What's your source?
This is simply FABULOUS news.
little brown girls are
OH GOD I LOVE SHOUJO ART
Am I the only one who found these girls really, really arousing?
Little shadow girls are the best.
NOW WITH MOAR slaps!!!!
I...dont remember that
That's because it was only shown for half a second. Utena sees it when she gets out of bed to take a piss or something and nearly wets herself
Neither does she. Akio's GHB strikes again
shoujo art is shiny
kashira kashira gozonji kashira!??
I always had a thing for this girl.
A blue-haired, twin-fucking 13 year old.
The best lesbians
It might be the first anime series I pay for in YEARS. This news made my day
Lesbian angst is soooo 1997
Was there ever another show with as many delicious browns?
Or lesbians, sisterfuckers, and little naked 14 year olds?
Fuck yes you were the best arc.
Elevator was win.
Kozue -- hot blue haired girl or HOTTEST blue haired girl?
OH HO HO HO HO~
Are there any God Hand edits made about Utena?
I seem to remember one, but it would exist in the black hole I call my To Sort folder.
hottest. without a doubt
He ought to get rid of all the recycled animation. I love this show but by the end I was ready to cut off my own ears, Kaiji style, every time I had to sit through 2 minutes of ZETTAI UNMEI MOKUSHIROKU while Utena climbed some stairs.
You missed the point of the series.
Is that my delicious little cow girl?
That wasn't the point of the show. It's called cost cutting measures.
The show was about symbolism and ritual.
It would've been nice to have a different animation for each time, but it's not needed. And it would be expensive.
Seriously? I couldn't get enough of that song.
Don't talk shit about ZUM.
1:50 seconds of recycled animation is pretty damn absurd. It was also in almost every single episode for a while there (until they got some NEW recycled animation).
I'd be willing to admit that it's one of the quirks of the show and you can sort of fondly look back on it but it was still goddamn annoying.
OH FUCK YEAH!
For all it's flaws I can't help but love Utena.
Akio driving scene in HD?
Everything I know about sex, I learned it from this show.
Ikuhara himself said that the symbols and the rest were thrown in for the lulz.
Yeah, and that's all the show amounted to.
If you ignore the symbolic and ritualistic elements, then there's nothing really to the show.
Just because they added symbolism randomly and still struck gold doesn't mean it's not good.
Utena is the manliest anime EVAR
True, see NGE ... and both have legions.
The difference is that NGE sucked, whereas this didn't.
No love for the Onion Princess?
Utena brings me back to the glory days when being FABULOUS was cool. Now we're only allowed go gay for manly men.
Akio is pansexual. Neither FABULOUS nor gay.
Waka-chan wa kawaii DESU NE
And that they precisely said that it had no sense, where Evangelion took the pompous road.
I didn't like her when she pulled the same shit to her "Onion Prince" that she knew would get pulled on her.
But, then, I tend not to like women like that, nor forgive.
Her duel theme was nice, though.
Yeah. The best symbolic series are where the symbolism is completely open to interpretation.
Because that's what symbolism is about.
Whatever he was, he was fucking awesome.
>>Because that's what symbolism is about.
Not entirely true, it depends on what approach to analysis you're taking. If it's an author-centric viewpoint then you can't just make up wild shit and call it good.
Of course, this is Utena we're talking about and I don't even think the creators knew what it all meant. So in this case, have at it. Anything goes.
Hey, look what I found.
definitely an improvement
When this becomes popular will /a/ be able to stand the influx of newfags whining about how gay the show is?
Hey guys there's gonna be a remastered edition of Ursula's Kiss! I hope to see it on american TV soon!
Ikuhara was the best thing that happened to this show. The manga is shitty compared to the series.
Utena might give her some tender lovin'
I remember the creator being asked about the meaning of the roses and his reply was something like "lol i dunno i never thought about that".
>> Ikuhara was the best thing that happened to anime history.
Fixed for future generations
Utena is from 98.
Also, it already has its fans, it doesn't needs a fucking flux of new fans.
Also, every anon knows that Akio would fuck anything with an orifice.
I really don't see it becoming popular, they're only remastering it, not remaking it
And even if the fags bothered them, once they noticed the lesbians they'd be all over this show.
FUCK YEAH HIGH DEF ELEVATOR.
fuck yeah, shadow girls
Under the Sea! Darlin' it's better, down where it's wetter, take it from mee!
...Waaait a moment.
Utena...remastered? Is it gonna be, like, completely redone, or will the do the same shit George Lucas does when he 'remasters' his movies?
This is the best outfit ever. I wish she'd worn it in the TV series.
>>Also, every anon knows that Akio would fuck anything with an orifice.
Did he ever "exhaust-ed" his AkioCar?
Oh hell fucking yes.
Sounds like I'll be laughing my ass off on an hourly basis.
Stfu and have sum shota
ZETTAI UNMEI MOKUSHIROKU
twincest is best
My inner Touga cried.
Then my inner Akio fapped.
They may only be remastering it, but it will still get some kind of advertisement, and since anime is more popular now than it was back then it will most likely end up becoming popular. It just reaches out to too many demographics for it to not end up becoming popular.
Think he fucked her body after he killed her?
If Akio were real he would go on 4chan.
Only believable relationship in anime history
Some day, science will make it possible.
Is this the animu version of Starman?
No, because her body was sealed into the giant ass looming black Kozue car, dipshit.
I loved the lack of sexual inhibition in Utena.
Everything and everyone was fair game.
ZETTAI UNMEI MOKUSHIROKU
And then he would make fap every anon with his incest stories.
Anthy, the original little brown girl
This thread needs more of the lesbian mobile.
and the best
SHUSSEI TOUROKU SENREI MEINO SHINOU TOUROKUUUUUU
Technically, it's true that symbolism is a societal trait. We perceive symbols based on what society assigns to them, in general, and there's an underlying flow of the generally accepted interpretations for symbols.
But symbols are merely that: symbols. Their meaning actually depends on the values and assignments that the one who interprets them provides.
The best symbolism isn't bold-faced, but subtle and open to interpretation by varying facets of the audience.
The best thing I like about Akio is that he wasn't an emo villain. Even when he was having his bitch moments, like his whole "She's a witch, and she likes being a witch" speech, he was still cool about it.
FUCK YES YOU ARE THE GREATEST SERIES EVER.
Yeah, but Akio was a fucking bitch in the movie. Made me sad.
Movie Akio was all kinds of fail.
Neuteured Akio-Bowie made me go BAAAWWW.
Such a shame...
If you look at the movie as being a mirror reflection of the tv series, then the reason Akio is such a bitch is because that was his true personality. While the way he behaves in the tv series is how he imagines himself to be. And somehow when they dug him up he blended with his tv series self to become a lame version of the Prince.
Huh. That actually makes sense.
Ikuhara was a part of Be-papas, as was Chiho Saito...
Why did everyone turn into cars?
Source of OP's claims? Also, HD or only DVD like Escaflowne's recent re-release?
That would explain the "Children can't understand the importance of this room" line.
The projector in that rooms allows him to live out his dreams/fairytale. Cause when you become an adult you're supposed to give up on your fairytales and live in the "real world". It's that whole "You become an adult and your life turns to shit until you die" thing that the Japanese seem to love so much.
All I know is Freud would have a field day with this anime.
So their partners could have something to drive while traveling down the pathway to life?
I gave it earlier, fuckwad.
This thread needs more pictures
As anon wishes.
this series helped lead me to hate lesbianism
Holy fuck, I go on /a/ on a lark and I find both Utena remaster news and an actual Utena thread.
/a/ could always use a little Utena.
Juri is a shotacon?
