Utena 37-39: Out with a whimper

Revolutionary Girl Utena episodes 37-39 review

Utena 39

These final three episodes of Utena made little sense and offered little hope. The way it ends, you’re left in almost total despair. There’s no revolution; there’s no resolution. Instead you get a big sour ending that leaves you wanting to sit on a folding chair and say negative things. The movie is the last chance for Utena to redeem itself, which I’ll review next week. If the move cannot redeem Utena, then Utena may very well go down as the most overrated anime I’ve ever seen. What a disappointment.

Episode 37 rating (out of four stars): *

Episode 38 rating: *

Episode 39 rating: *1/2
