The Anthy bullying is too much, I can't handle this. She's just a poor girl with social anxiety ;_;
The fuck are you talking about-
Kitten murdering cow, that's all she is.
By the end of the show you will wish they slapped her more.
Also, you'll wonder why Utena didn't slap her shit at least once.
>just a poor girl with social anxiety
I guess I'll take your word for it...
It's just sad seeing her getting slapped every single episode.
Anthy hate everywhere. I think she's a great character.
Because Utena fashioned herself a prince.
Also Huge Spoiler
Dios is The God. He does god things, like saving people. But even god can't save everyone without dyeing. So his sister wants to save him and seals him. Humanity's hate is her punishment.
Over time Dios grew accustomed to his new status and lost the power. He and his sister remained in that closed space sister made to contain him.
Eventually Dios became Akio, the Lucifer. Anthy still loves him and follows him, but also hates what he had become. She still hates outside world more, and afraid of leaving brother's side.
Dios' power is no longer in possession of Akio, and wanders, like a sort of projection. He/it meets Utena. That's when the story starts.
In the end, Anthy comes to love Utena as much as she loved her brother (sexually). Backstab is as much wanting to save her from the pain as it is the last test. Utena's actions make Anthy sure that there's someone outside that she can be sure of. So she heads out. Outside of Ohtori. Whatever Ohtori actually is. Or whenever.
Actually the devil since he's referred to as the Lord of the Flies.
You have quite a ride ahead of you, my friend.
Akio himself made a mention of Morning Star. And Lord of Flies is Beelzebub. I'm not all that great on Christian Demonology, but I distinctly remember Satan, Beelzebub and Lucifier being different characters, even though all of them are called Devil sometimes.
I'm looking forward to it. I liked Penguindrum a lot, and I've liked this a lot so far.
It's tempting to look at the spoilers here, but I probably shouldn't.
Yuri Bear PV when?
In fact, you should leave /a/ immediately. And don't come back until you finish the series, and the movie. Don't be discouraged if you feel confused. You might require a re-watch, is all.
No, trust me, it's good to watch it unspoiled. If you're too curious just bookmark the thread and wait until you've finished watching.
Anthy is a fascinating character.
I don't get the Anthy hate either.
Pretty sure Lucifer is just Satan's angelic name which he lost when he was cast down.
Beelzabub is just a demon.
Satan and Lucifer are the same guy.
Don't skip the recap episode
Okay, I got to episode 6. Watching Utena makes me feel like practicing piano.
