The Legendary Shojo Anime Series Comes to Blu-ray in a stunning complete Limited Edition Collection featuring all 39 episodes and the Theatrical Feature!
''Never lose that strength or nobility, even when you grow up.'' When Utena was just a child and in the depths of sorrow, she found salvation in those words. They were the words of a prince, who wrapped her in his rose-scented embrace and bestowed upon her both a ring and the promise that it would lead her to him again. She never forgot the encounter. In fact, she was so impressed that she aspired to be like the prince and also help those in need. Now a spirited teenager, Utena attends the prestigious Ohtori Academy. However, her strong sense of chivalry soon places her at odds with the school's student council and thrusts her into a series of mysterious and dangerous duels against its members.

Utena is a 15-year-old who dresses as a boy (due to an encounter with a prince at a young age). She attends the exclusive Ohtori academy and learns about the student council and Anthy, the Rose Bride. Unable to bear the sight of a helpless student bullied by someone who apparently “owns” her, she immediately acts to rescue her.
Throughout this grim and exciting 39-episode series, we are treated to the private and public lives of many characters (even side characters are given some exposition in the Black Rose arc). The series shines as an introspective look into how complicated people can be and what drives their actions. I found this aspect of the show more riveting and interesting than the plot, which tries to be deeper than it is, but is ultimately simple upon a second reflection.
Extra features include interviews with the creators, two exquisite collector’s rings, a translated Japanese commentary, behind-the-scene stories and liner notes. This is a show not to be missed.
