Redarrow Castle in the Sky : The Shoujo Kakumei Utena FC

..::-WELCOME-::..

Once upon a time, there was a princess who was very sad for she had lost her mother and father. Before that princess appeared a traveling prince riding upon a white horse. He had a regal bearing and a kind smile. The prince wrapped the princess in a rose-scented embrace and gently wiped away her tears.
"Little one who all alone bears upon such deep sorrow, never lose that strength and nobility, even when you grow up. I give you this to remember this day."
"We will meet again, won't we?"
"This ring will lead you to where I am."
Perhaps the ring that she received from the prince really was an engagement ring. That was all good and well, but the princess was so impressed by the prince that she vowed to also become a prince herself.

But was that really such a good idea?

..::-INFORMATION-::..


Shoujo Kakumei Utena (or Revolutionary Girl Utena) is a manga created by Chiho Saito and anime directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara. The manga serial began in the June 1996 issue of Ciao and the anime was first broadcast in 1997. A movie, "Adolescence of Utena" was released in theatres in 1999. A number of stage productions based on the franchise were also produced in the mid 1990s, including the "Comedie Musicale Utena la fillette révolutionnaire", staged by an all-female Takarazuka-style cast.

The story revolves around Utena Tenjou, a tomboyish teenage girl who was so impressed by a kind prince she met in her childhood that she decided to become a prince herself. She attends Ohtori Academy, where she meets a student named Anthy Himemiya, a quiet and mysterious girl who appears to be in an abusive relationship with another student. Utena ends up fighting in order to protect Anthy and is pulled into a series of sword duels with the members of the Student Council, all arranged by a mysterious person calling himself "End of the World". Within these duels Anthy is referred to as the "Rose Bride" and is given as a prize to the winner of each duel. As Anthy is thought to be in possesion of the mysterious power refered to as "the power to revolutionize the world", the current champion is constantly challenged for the right to possess the Rose Bride, as each of the duelists have their own personal reasons for wanting that power.

While the show at first might have the appearance of a magical girl series, it is also highly metaphysical, surreal, and allegorical. It contains a mix of borrowed visuals from Takarazuka theater, shadow puppetry, and classic shoujo manga.

The anime and manga were created simultaneously, but, despite some similarities, they progressed in different directions.

Main Characters:
Note that all character information is based mainly on the anime version of the series and not so much on the manga or movie versions.

Utena Tenjou:


Age: 14 Years
Birthday: December 29
Sign: Capricorn
Blood type: B
Height: 164cm (5'4")
Likes: Sports, collecting rose teacups, dressing like a boy
Talents: Giving piggyback rides, making friends
Dislikes: Natto, clingy boys
Sword: The Sword of Dios
Rose Color: White or Pink
Drive to Duel: The desire to protect Anthy
Theme Song: Gakuen no Scarlet
Voice Actor: Tomoko Kawakami

Utena is a tomboyish, courageous and naive character who lives to emulate the idealized prince figure from her childhood. She is forthright, honest, and friendly. Nearly all the girls in school idolize her. The series chronicles her journey to protect her friend Anthy and become a truly noble Prince. As the series passes, her nobility is continuously tested, until she is finally forced to confront her own hypocrisy.

Anthy Himemiya:


Age: 14 Years...?
Birthday: February 29
Sign: Pisces
Blood type: AB
Height: 157cm (5'1")
Likes: Animals, playing cards
Talents: Talking to animals
Dislikes: Studying, cooking, making friends
Theme Song: Bara no Tameiki
Voice Actor: Yuriko Fuchizaki

A mysterious, shy girl whose vapid expression and superficial politeness mask a complex, darker persona. She is said to have no thoughts or desires besides that of what her master expect of her. Because of her "doormat" behavior, other characters tend to project their wants or desires onto her, and she's always the target of their eventual rage. However, Anthy only pretends to be so in order to keep them in the Duels, and often enjoys subtly taking revenge on those around her. Her past and current personality are simultaneously tragic and sinister, and her personality sifts between selfless love, passive-aggressive revenge, cruelty, and learned helplessness.

Miki Kaoru:


Age: 13 Years
Birthday: May 28
Sign: Gemini
Blood type: O
Height: 160cm (5'3")
Likes: Milkshakes, studying
Talents: Fencing, playing the piano, composing
Weak Points: His twin sister, being too unguarded
Sword: Épée
Rose Color: Blue
Drive to Duel: To find "his shining thing"
Duel Theme Songs: 1: Spira Mirabilis Gekijou, 2: Heizoku Uchuu ni Fumetsu no Koutei
Duel Names: 1: Raison, 2: Tentation
Voice Actor: Aya Hisakawa

Miki is an ingenuous and polite seventh grader who befriends Utena, despite their role as possible opponents in the duels. He is especially known for his skill with the piano. In spite (or because of) his genius, he is lonely, sheltered, and insecure, and seeks a person who is just as pure and talented as him. He is a member of the Student Council and the fencing club.

Juri Arisugawa:


Age: 16 Years
Birthday: December 1
Sign: Sagittarius
Blood type: A
Height: 169cm (5'5")
Likes: Lilies, designer products
Talents: Fencing, prior modeling, experience
Weak Point: Too many secrets
Sword: Rapier
Rose Color: Orange
Drive to Duel: To disprove the power of miracles
Duel Theme Songs: 1: Tenshi Souzou Sunawachi Hikari, 2: Watashi Banbatsu Hyaku Fushigi
Duel Names: 1: Amour, 2: ?
Voice Actor: Kotono Mitsuishi

The captain of the academy's fencing team, Jury is one of Ohtori's most highly respected students, and even the teachers appear to be in awe of her. Her aloof, intimidating manner belies a dark secret. Of the Student Council Duellists, she is thought to be the most noble, and thus the one with the most potential to become a Prince, but her nobility and the strength that comes with it are constantly undermined by her desires and despair.

Touga Kiryuu:


Age: 17 Years
Birthday: June
Sign: Gemini
Blood type: A
Height: 193cm (6'4")
Likes: Flirting, cats, power
Talents: Womanizing, kendo
Weak Points: Losing, real love
Sword: Longsword
Rose Color: Red
Drive to Duel: To gain power
Duel Theme Songs: 1: Fuuin Juubaku, 2: Nanbito mo Kataru Koto Nashi, 3: Guui Guuwa Guuest
Duel Names: 1: Conviction, 2: Soi, 3: ?
Voice Actor: Takehito Koyasu

President of the Student Council and Ohtori's resident playboy, Touga is an arrogant and handsome young man whose desire to be powerful drives him to cruel and unscrupulous deeds. He is the only regular Council Member who deliberately involves himself in "End of the World"'s plans. Although he says that he wishes to be noble, he has little empathy towards anyone.

Kyouichi Saionji:


Age: 17 Years
Birthday: August 25
Sign: Virgo
Blood type: O
Height: 193cm (6'4")
Likes: Anthy
Talents: Kendo, carving
Weak Points: Losing, lacking power
Sword: Katana
Rose Color: Green
Drive to Duel: To find "something eternal", to claim Anthy as his Rose Bride, and to finally defeat Touga.
Duel Theme Songs: 1: When Where Who Which, 2: Nikutai no Naka no Koseidai, 3: Virtual Star Hasseigaku
Duel Names: 1: Amitié, 2: Choix, 3: Relation
Voice Actor: Takeshi Kusao

Vice-president of the Student Council and captain of the kendo team. He is temperamental, egotistic, prone to angry rages, and often cruel. His lack of self-control stems from insecurity, a lifelong rivalry against Touga from which he is always at the losing end, and the fear that everyone and everything he knows will eventually die. He is obsessed with Anthy because he views the Rose Bride as a mindless doll who will never disobey him, and thus be with him forever. He and Touga practice kendo together, but Saionji is clearly very resentful of Touga, and especially cannot bear to be humiliated by him.

Nanami Kiryuu:


Age: 13 Years
Birthday: August 8
Sign: Leo
Blood type: B
Height: 159cm (5'2")
Likes: Her brother, ordering others around
Talents: Getting randomly attacked by animals
Weak Points: Animals, her brother
Sword: Scimitar and Dagger
Rose Color: Yellow
Drive to Duel: Her big brother's honor, her own self-worth, and validation of her relationship with Touga.
Duel Theme Songs: 1: Last Evolution, 2: Tennen Douhou Kyuden Enkinhou no Sho
Duel Names: 1: Adoration, 2: ?
Voice Actor: Yuri Shiratori

Touga's overdramatic little sister, often used as comic relief throughout the series. Her love for her brother borders on obsession and incest, and she is often seen using devious scenes to punish the people who take her brother's attentions away from her. Though her motivations are considered the simplest and least ambitious out of all the Duelists, they are no less real to her, and she suffers just as much as all the other Student Council members.
