posted on by Karen Ressler
Director Kunihiko Ikuhara's Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Movie premiered in 1999 as a retelling of his earlier television series Revolutionary Girl Utena, which adapts Chiho Saitō's manga of the same name. Central Park Media released the film in North America on DVD and VHS.
Tubi TV is streaming the film with the English dub. The streaming service is also streaming the original television series with English audio.
All 13 episodes of Arjuna (Earth Girl Arjuna) are available with English subtitles. Shoji Kawamori (Macross, Aquarion) directed the series in 2001. Bandai Entertainment released the series on DVD, and described the story:
High school, archery club, and boys were the things that filled Juna's daily life. But when an accident leaves her clinging tenuously between life and death, fate intervenes as she becomes the sole witness to scenes of Earth's destruction along with humanity's reckless pollution of the sky, the Earth, and water.
It is here in which Juna is given a new chance at life and bestowed the powers of the Earth, a power she must wield in order to stop an evil bent on Earth's destruction.
The story centers on Shu, a boy whose village faces another attack from a longtime mysterious enemy. While trying to fend off the attack, Shu and his two friends, Jiro and Kluke, gain the ability to emanate monsters from their own shadows. With his Blue Dragon Shadow monster, Shu seeks to defend his home from the enemy.
The 2007 anime is based on an Xbox 360 role-playing game with character designs by Akira Toriyama. Viz Media licensed the series, and an edited version aired on Cartoon Network in the United States. Viz released part of the series on DVD.
