I've already finished it and I really enjoyed it. Plan on watching the movie when I have the chance.

You'll enjoy the movie. It's beautifully animated and there's tons of symbolism everywhere.

So my interest has been renewed in this show lately (unfortunately because of that I know a lot of spoilers). I really, REALLY want to start it over again, but I hear later on it gets pretty sexual. Is it still worth it despite that? It sounds really god what with it's deconstruction of fairy tale archetypes, normal shoujo conventions, and symbolic depiction of loss of innocence and growing up. Still, is it that bad in that way?

I really tried to get into this anime for Anime Watching Club, but for some reason it was just too...weird and confusing xD Plus I'm kind of stereotypical in that I want 'princess' characters to be elegant and pretty and...I just didn't like the so-called princess's design in this one. I may try to get back into this anime some other time, though.

So, I never read too far into the manga and I've never watched the anime, but I did enjoy what of the manga I did read. I'm not sure how the anime is different from the manga, but, maybe, Sailor Pluto, you could try reading a few chapters of the manga to see if it strikes your fancy any differently? I love the concept of this series.

Not really. The sexual parts are relevant to the plot and just as symbolic/important to the anime because of the various themes about adulthood and maturity. Overall, it doesn't detract from the show at all in my opinion.

Also the manga isn't that long and overall is the same as the anime although there are some differences (it's shorter, some characters are portrayed differently, and some characters in the anime aren't in the anime). To me the anime is the superior version (it fleshes out the story and characters a lot more) and honestly if you didn't like the anime, you probably won't like the manga either.

Alright. I will probably begin watching it soon then.

Also I pretty much figured the sexual stuff was a part of the "loss of innocence" themes.

I finally got around to watching this last year as I got it for my birthday. It is a pretty weird series and I love the first ending theme! The movie has to be the strangest anime movie I've ever watched.

I just started watching it again last night. Kinda forgot how much I liked it (and how good the music was!).

Just an fyi that all the episodes of Revolutionary Girl Utena (sub) are officially on Youtube now. Most of the episodes were up on there before but some were missing. Highly recommend watching!  Smile

Yay! I'll try to watch it more now, between episodes of EVA, Sailor Moon R, and RWBY.

So I just finished the first arc (haven't seen the clips how episode yet though) and all I can think is, "Man, how's Juri gonna react to her sword being broken?"
