Revolutionary Girl Utena 20th Anniversary Ultra Edition Complete Series Blu-ray Collection

The Legendary Shojo Anime Series Comes To Blu-ray In A Stunning Complete 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.
