Gougai! Gougai!

Anime News Network asked Gio & Yasha to write an article about Utena, Empty Movement, and they totally called us superfans, omg. Think of it as a belated Valentine's to Utena, its fandom, and the excellent friendships we've made along the way. 20 Years of Utena Fandom with the Ultimate Superfans!!!

Master SKU Analysis Catalogue!

So what we've got here is a list of just about all the Utena analysis threads of the SKU subforum!  It does not include fanfics, even though many fanfics do double as character analysis.  IRG forum rules encourage you to necro a topic, no matter how old, if it strikes your fancy; just make sure you look through a thread before jumping in!  As Gio's gallery page used to say, pick your poison!  etc-love

If you're here for symbolism, see also lazypirates' excellent  Chu... of the  Chu...!

A note to our lurkers!  We love you!  But because of some sites that leech ohtori.nu's bandwidth without giving us actual traffic, we've turned all the links into Chu Chus except for registered users.  Please make an account and log in to view this catalogue and other links on IRG!  Don't worry, you don't have to post anything if you don't want to -- but you can always drop by the  Chu... if you want to say hi emot-smile

Holy cow, azuresquirrel, is that you?!?  I don't think I've seen you around here since the month the forum started up!  Welcome back emot-smile

And um, when I was in college my go-to snack food was s'more Pop-Tarts, untoasted.  My friends all made fun of me, but I showed them all by turning a Pop-Tarts box into a ballot box for an anime club officer election.

May I suggest some things? It would be good ,if the symbolisms were organized by episode. The same with the duel songs.

Most of them aren't tied to any specific episode, so I don't think they need to be reorganized, but you're right that it would be helpful if the ones that do correspond to just one episode were tagged as such.  I'll take care of it, but not right now emot-smile

So... Could anyone tell me the meaning of the key's car in the movie when akio goes crazy lookin' for it?

Thx emot-biggrin


There are many people in various places. You act differently towards many.
You're always searching for yourself. What king of "you" do you like?
And what kind of "you" do you want to be? I hope you find the right "you".
Good luck to you!

Re: Master SKU Analysis Catalogue!

Update complete!  The catalogue should now include all the new analysis threads from the last few months.  Quick aside: a pretty large number of the new threads were "duplicates," meaning they were on the same topic as an existing thread; whether Ruka died, for example, or the Myers-Briggs types of the cast.  It's no big deal if you accidentally make a duplicate thread, but at least check to see if there's an obvious existing thread you can necro instead.  That's what the catalogue is here for!  emot-smile

Re: Master SKU Analysis Catalogue!

I saw!  I'll be sure not to miss it when I do my next update.  It's easier to wait for a couple months' worth of new threads to accumulate and then add them all at once; this makes sense anyway, since you don't have to look very hard to find a thread that's still on the first page or two.

Do we have an "Influences on Utena" thread? I've tried the search, looked here, and either I'm just totally blind to it or... Why don't we have one?

Hmm!  Maybe we do, but I can't think of it.  That's almost more of a category of threads than a single thread.  I badly need to update this catalogue; maybe I'll split out a section for that when I do.
