In a perpetual state of the blahs.
I decided to watch the ending of Utena again, and I went through the scene where the swords destroy the dueling arena frame-by-frame.
Holy shit.
They’re destroying the symbols of Anthy’s oppression. The planetarium, the couch where she would always have to have sex with Akio, it all looks like they’re showing Anthy’s mental landscape. These things meant a lot to her. They were important landmarks of her life up until then.
These things that were once looming over her, reminding her of her role as the Rose Bride, are all stripped away of any imaginary power over her.
