Maybe they used to throw cold cans at each other before seduction and we're watching the baby of an inside joke.

I love the Nanami cat commercial etc-love oh absolute vodka, I want that movie made NOW. And then I want cosplays done.

Re: Little things that make you think about SKU.

I've been playing two Shin Megami Tensei games at once right now and both have little things that click my mind back to Utena:

Some demons throughout the main SMT games can get a move called Revolution which of course makes me think "Grant me the power to bring the world revolution!" and whenever the Student Council gets mentioned in Persona 3 (or Persona 3 Portable as I'm playing now) I end up giggling and thinking of our dear Student Council, also both Student Council Presidents are redheads. emot-rofl

Innocent Sin is so fantastic. I think the day they announced that the fan project was done was the last time before the announcement of our remastered DVDs that the internet made me so happy I wanted to explode. emot-tongue I really hope you enjoy the game! etc-love

Re: Little things that make you think about SKU.

1) Just like everyone else, roses in general ((especially white)). I bought this white rose ring that fits on my engagement finger so whenever I look down at it, I instantly think of Utena.
2) Also, since my gf && I cosplay from the show; I always think about it a bit whenever we talk or are around each other :]
3) Elevator, 'nuff said ((I actually do quote Touga, when I'm with friends/by myself of course. I did it once with someone else in the elevator, they looked incredibly confused && sprinted out when they got to their floor xD))
4) Going up long flights of stairs, I start humming Zettai.
5) When I have to stretch my legs for P.E. ((since Utena loves to do that in the show))
6) Flashy red cars...I instantly assume Akio must be nearby.
7) There's seriously this winding street I drive through, lined with insanely tall street lights; it looks /exactly/ like the setting for when Akio has his car driving moments.
8) Oxford shoes, they have a similar style to Utena's in the tv show.
9) Planetariums...I'm just hoping there's no sketchy incest going on when I visit one ;D

I'm sure there's more. Yep...simply put, I'm an Utena-tard xD;

Re: Little things that make you think about SKU.

I love saying Utena-y things in elevators. ESPECIALLY if there are other people in there.

The best one is MOKUSHIKUSHIMOSHIMOKUKUMOSHIMOSHIKUSHIKUMO

Re: Little things that make you think about SKU.

Once while I was at school, I'd tried to do the egg speech on an elevator, but I kept laughing. Also, the school only has two floors, nowhere near long enough to perform the speech.

Re: Little things that make you think about SKU.

Manipulating people to do useless tasks.  Akio much?
I do it all the time, it's great.

I just thought of this -- Before I even knew Utena existed when I was much younger, I used to take eggs out of the refrigerator and try to get them to hatch.  Never laid any, though.  school-eng101

Re: Little things that make you think about SKU.

I saw an episode of I Love Lucy where she gets an inferiority complex last week, and all I could think about was Shiori.

Re: Little things that make you think about SKU.

All the normal stuff such as elevators, roses, red cars. But also, I've noticed that my OCs have some Utena inspired traits about them. My Nobody OC (Kingdom Hearts) seems rather Anthy-ish, and my FF8 OC is quite Utena-ish. Well, there's nothing wrongwith that I guess, there's soooo much awesomeness that one can't help but use it as inspiration. There's also the fact that I've started to look for Utena-ish symbolism in my favorite games/shows/books which include, but are not limited to Kingdom Hearts series, Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy X, Princess Tutu, and Jane Eyre...yeah I've lost it, I know. emot-aaa

Re: Little things that make you think about SKU.

Today is my birthday and a friend of the family send me 12 pink roses. She doesn't know about SKU but I was totally thinking about Utena.

Re: Little things that make you think about SKU.

Teyhy, that is probably an Utena fans favorite gift ((providing they like roses && all emot-biggrin)). How nice that a friend did that for you, too! emot-keke

My gf ((who cosplays Anthy with me)) actually got my white roses for our 1 year. I don't know if that counts as something that reminds me of Utena because it was intentional, after all etc-love
So I know, getting roses instantly makes me think of Utena :] haha.

Re: Little things that make you think about SKU.

My boyfriend is joining the Kendo club at NYU, and my entire experience with Kendo consists of watching Saionji beat a stick up and down like a cute and harmless green haired robot. This is followed by the thought of chuchu-Saionji

Re: Little things that make you think about SKU.

Okay, here's a sad one.

I was walking around yesterday with my roommates (both of whom have seen some or all of SKU), and we passed by a fast-food billboard depicting an egg, a breakfast sandwich, and the slogan, "Breakfast: coming out of its shell."

N. and I just look at each other, and she asks, "Were you thinking what I was thinking?"

And I say, "Too easy!" and we all burst out laughing.

Re: Little things that make you think about SKU.

A while back, I was visiting my uncle in Atlanta with my mom and older sister. Before returning Home, we went to a restaurant in the city, at the top of a tall building. The interesting thing about this particular restaurant, was that the area where everyone actually sat and ate rotated, allowing a full view of the city while dining.
Before actually going up to the restaurant, we took some stairs down to what appeared to be a café in order to speak to someone and let them know we were there. While going down the stairs, I thought about singing Zettai Unmei Mokushiroku. When we took an elevator to the top floor where the restaurant was, I made another attempt at the egg speech, but forgot the rest of the lines partway through.emot-rofl I swear, one of these days I will get that speech right!

Re: Little things that make you think about SKU.

I went with my co-worker to a place that sells specialty beers today, and look what I found:

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b333/TheAntiSora/213416.jpg

End of the World brand beer! (Yes, I know it's in French, but it still counts!)  It has a complex flavor: very sweet but with a sharp bitter aftertaste.  I think Akio would approve.


I'm a fan of pessimism: if you maintain the lowest expectations possible, they'll always be met or exceeded.
