Utena 13-14: Not going anywhere

Revolutionary Girl Utena episodes 13-14 review

Utena 14

Episode 13 was a recrap episode, so nothing new there. Episode 14 added a very confusing plot with Anthy’s big brother, and another obligatory Utena duel. The problem with these duels is that neither character even knows why they’re fighting, and once the fight is over, nothing is resolved. Look, I’m not trying to be pessimistic here, but so far Utena is going absolutely nowhere, and this is supposed to be something legendary like Evangelion. It still has a while to go before the final verdict, but at the moment it’s spinning its wheels.
