Dear Brother (TV)
Go back to Dear Brother main page
"Oniisama e" aired on both French and Italian television, and it was banned in both countries due to the shocking content of the twenty-sixth episode.
The French dub is comprised of the first seventeen episodes in the series. Original episodes 18-39 were never dubbed or aired on French television.
Several episodes of "Caro Fratello" were forcibly skipped during its run on Italian public television.
Superficially, "Brother, Dear Brother" has much in common with "Revolutionary Girl Utena." Both feature likeable yet naive heroines, exclusive societies, and forbidden homosexual and/or incestuous relationships. Both heroines have perky, pony-tailed best friends whose ordinariness gradually precludes them from the encroaching melodrama. Both series also feature handsome, melancholic blondes who cling to pieces of gold jewelry that serve as painful reminders of their unrequited loves for other women. In both series, female characters are referred to as "princes," and roses play symbolic roles. "Brother, Dear Brother" is based on a manga by Riyoko IKEDA, who also wrote "The Rose of Versailles," which is considered to be one of the greatest inspirations for "Revolutionary Girl Utena."
