Re: Let's Play! Utena, Round 3: The Path Before Us Has Been Prepared

This is all very interesting and such, but my primary question has yet to be answered. It's quite possibly the greatest mystery of all and I think warrants at least a few essays.

Why does Chigusa have gigantic titties, but absolutely no cleavage? Is it just a huge glob of fat awkwardly wedged onto her chest? Or perhaps she's more self-conscious than she lets on, and wears a flesh colored tank under the dress?

I think her shirt holds her breast's apart, you only have cleavage when breast's are squeezed together. Still though, now that we are talking about her breast's, WHY does everyone think she's a guy? I really don't see it.... then again, I don't think Utena looks like a guy at all either... nor do I think Miki and Kozue look much a like.

For Chigusa, the only reasonable explanation is that the script was written before Chigusa's character design was finalized... but frankly, even Tokiko!Chigusa doesn't look exactly butch. So who knows.

As for Utena, I don't think anybody ever says she looks like a boy. I guess the whole issue of her "boy's" uniform is kind of similar, though.

and accidentally made too much.

Anthy:
Without another person, it we won't be able to finish it, don't you think?

D-ko:
Then, should we invite someone over?

CHOICE:
Touga (possible +1 TOUGA and +1 SECRET ANTHY POINT)
Juri (possible +1 or -1 JURI)
Saionji (-1 or +2 SAIONJI)
Miki (possible +1 or +2 MIKI)
Chigusa (+2 UTENA and +2 CHIGUSA, or +1 SECRET GAG POINT)

Our mission in life: to bug Chigusa.

D-ko:
Then, how about we call Chigusa-san?
She just returned to school,
so she probably doesn't have any friends to eat with, right?.

Utena:
What dorm is she in?

Anthy:
Here's a directory.

Utena:
Weird, there's only an address written here.
Does she have a house to herself?

Anthy:
But the address is quite close.

D-ko:
Alright then, I'll go call on her.

Anthy:
Please do.
Judging by the address, it shouldn't take you more than five minutes.

D-ko:
Okay. Then, I'll be taking the directory.
I'll be back soon!

Wow, I'm impressed that Ohtori maintains such up-to-date student directories.

http://img691.imageshack.us/img691/7041/00001098.png
D-ko:
So these are ruins after all...
I wonder if the white fencing hall I saw was just a dream.
I mean, Chigusa-san didn't recognize me, either...
But, it's strange...
according to the directory, isn't this supposed to be Chigusa's address?
What should I do...?
I don't think anybody could live here.


Kozue:
Stop, sempai... that tickles.

Chigusa:
(Sorry, but I'm not going to stop.)
The night is still young.

(Kozue and Chigusa giggle and whisper.)

Kozue: (quietly)
Sempai...

Chigusa: (quietly)
You're cute, aren't you...?

Kozue: (not sounding in pain)
(That hurts...)

Okay, D-ko, let me lay it out for you. The very moment you hear Kozue tell Chigusa that something tickles (in the dead of night, in an abandoned location), you should carefully and quietly turn around, head back home, and tell Utena and Anthy that you couldn't find Chigusa's place.

Unfortunately, this is D-ko...

D-ko:
Chigusa-san's voice...?

(the sound of something being knocked over)

http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/876/00001099.png

Kozue:
Who's there!?

Chigusa:
Well, well. It seems we have an unexpected interruption.

Kozue:
You again?

http://img525.imageshack.us/img525/3463/00001100.png

Chigusa:
What do you want, kitten?
Did you come to confirm whether this was a ruin or not?

D-ko:
No I...
I came to invite you to dinner, but...

Chigusa:
Oh? Me...?
Kozue, forgive me.
A classmate has invited me to dinner.

Kozue:
But...

Chigusa:
I'll see you tomorrow.
We still have time.

In my opinion, Kozue is perfectly justified in pushing us down a flight of stairs just for this.

http://img231.imageshack.us/img231/2415/00001103.png

Utena;
Huh... so the directory had a misprint?

Chigusa:
Yes. I'll tell a teacher first thing tomorrow.

D-ko:
I thought it was weird!
There's no way anyone could live in those ruins.

Chigusa:
Of course not.
By the way, Utena-kun.
I hear you aspire to be a prince.

Utena:
Yeah, well...

Chigusa:
Do you know the story of Snow White?

Utena:
Sure, she's the one who eats a poisoned apple, right?

Chigusa:
Exactly right.
But you know,
I understand the feelings of the queen who makes her eat it.
(The queen probably wanted to be tied to the prince.)

D-ko:
Chigusa-san... what on earth are you trying to say?

http://img535.imageshack.us/img535/4539/00001105.png

Chigusa:
There are only two kinds of girls in the world.
Snow White or Evil Queen.
And I wanted to be a queen...
To know magic myself,
to create a poison apple,
and to make Snow White eat it.
To pursue happiness through my own power.

http://img695.imageshack.us/img695/7138/00001106.png

Chigusa:
I hate princesses.
Those princesses, who only cry and wait.
But princes... they're inclined to choose women like that.

http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/8995/00001108.png

Chigusa:
Tenjou Utena... what about you?
Will you become a princess... or a queen?

Utena:
I don't really...

Chigusa:
(Oh, so is that why you take the appearance of a boy?
So you don't have to become either?)

D-ko:
Chigusa-san, the way you're talking is so cruel...

CHOICE:
Slap Chigusa's cheek (+2 CHIGUSA, +2 UTENA)
Calm down the situation with a gag (+1 SECRET GAG POINT)

Next time: we add to the slap count!

No wonder Kozue dislikes us, we've interrupted her game twice in one day. I'd be peeved too. Also, Kozue/Chigusa: hot etc-wankgirl. But how does doing the slippery mambo with Kozue advance Chigusa's evil plans exactly emot-confused?

I wonder why the directory makers didn't question Chigusa when she put down an abandoned building as her address.

Dalbun, you know you're going to have to translate that gag option, right?

Wow, Kozue really is a gigantic whore. I gotta give her her points, though. She wouldn't be falling for Touga's completely retarded pick up lines.

Then again, he'd know that. I wonder what he'd say instead.

Re: Let's Play! Utena, Round 3: The Path Before Us Has Been Prepared

Heroic update emot-aaa

Now I understand much better how this game is supposed to work.  Our first time through, we're supposed to be fascinated with Chigusa, since she's the OC other than ourselves.  The second time through, if we didn't focus on Chigusa the first time, we'll do it because she proved to be so central.  One time or the other, we're supposed to get this scene.  And this scene is different from the other scenes with her.  It's the first to make me feel like, "whoa, not only is she pure evil, but furthermore, we need to stay as far away from her as possible."  Which is, of course, how you win.

Points of interest:

- "The boarding house ladies [made too much food]."  This finally explains where Utena and Anthy's meals come from while they live in the dorm.  This had occasionally bugged me.  I can't imagine Utena spending more than half an hour at a span in a kitchen, but Anthy's inability to cook is canon.  I wonder where these boarding house ladies live.

- Kozue remains a wonderful slut.  emot-rolleyes  Edited to add: Gio, my feeling is that Kozue and Touga try out increasingly ridiculous pickup lines on each other, because they both think it's fun to mock intimacy.

- Chigusa and Anthy identically believe that a girl has to become either a princess or a crone, and both have had princess-hood denied to them.  Isn't it interesting, then, how differently they take on the role of the crone?  young!Anthy becomes a witch by locking the prince away from the world.  Chigusa becomes a queen by, um, killing the princess.  This says something about Anthy's passive or passive-aggressive approach versus Chigusa's active one.  I wish that Anthy and Chigusa had shared some lines of dialogue in the scene we just saw.

- Relatedly, it's interesting to me how glibly Chigusa dismisses Utena's uniform.  Unlike Anthy, who is repeatedly moved by Utena's striving to become a prince even if she ultimately denies Utena's princehood, Chigusa is just flat-out mocking Utena here.  I can't help but explain this as envy.  Utena is already beginning to move outside the princess<-->crone dichotomy that has engulfed Chigusa; Chigusa resents that Utena is on a path that might make her less miserable than Chigusa is.  Though the situation is completely different and in some ways reversed, Chigusa's behavior here strangely reminds me of Juri's assault on Utena by the fountain.  "Stop being the best human you know how to be!  It makes me feel bad!"

Yeah, but my accuracy is suffering a bit as I try to push through long segments quickly. Sorry about that.

I wonder where these boarding house ladies live.

I dunno, but presumably not in the East Dorm itself. I took the line to mean that these ladies take care of all the students living in campus housing.

Ruggahissy wrote:

Chigusa has a strategy to get at each of the Student Council Members. She challenges Saionji to a duel and crushes him, steals Juri's locket and challenges her too, and dates Kozue. (In the last playthrough, we narrowly missed a scene where Miki is worrying about Kozue being caught up with her.) I'm not really clear if she has an angle on Touga, but we'll be seeing more of Touga and Chigusa together this time through, so maybe we'll find out.

So yeah, I think it's unlikely that Chigusa cares much for Kozue specifically. Although attracting "princes" has a lot of significance to Chigusa, she seems to view female attention as much less important. (Which I guess makes sense - they're just a bunch of screaming princesses, after all.) Still, Kozue and Chigusa certainly seem to get along well, don't they? emot-wink


By the way, I'd like to mention what a pleasure it is to translate Utena's dialogue, as little as there's been lately. After dealing with so much Touga, Chigusa, and.... basically every other member of the cast, it's refreshing to return to a jock who has no (conversational) pretensions.

I guess D-ko is kind of similar in that she's basically straightforward, but when D-ko gets steamrolled during a conversation, she's always like "oh no, how should I respond, this person I'm talking to is so much cooler than me and what they're saying must be totally important and deep." In similar situations, Utena usually just seems resigned to the fact that everyone around her is completely insane.

Re: Let's Play! Utena, Round 3: The Path Before Us Has Been Prepared

Hm, I guess I never caught on to Chigusa's scheme to get at Miki because in the last rounds there didn't seem to be any connect between Kozue's hanging out with Chigusa and Miki, it didn't even seem like he was aware of it.

What does Chigusa view Kozue as, I wonder? Not a princess I don't think. Something that struck me as odd is that in the park she says she's waiting for someone and up pops Kozue. Then Chigusa asks "Do you not have your own prince to escort you?" which seems to imply that either Kozue or Chigusa is a prince in this situation and Chigusa is asking "Well? What about you?"

She must have an elaborated plan for him, as he looks like so much as her prince.

Can't wait to see it emot-aaa

Now that I think about it... I suppose if Chigusa doesn't think of Kozue as a princess, she must necessarily think of her as a younger Evil Queen. No wonder they get along well.

Something that struck me as odd is that in the park she says she's waiting for someone and up pops Kozue. Then Chigusa asks "Do you not have your own prince to escort you?" which seems to imply that either Kozue or Chigusa is a prince in this situation and Chigusa is asking "Well? What about you?"

Yeah, I think Chigusa was making herself out to be the "Prince" there. I don't think she meant it very seriously, though: maybe it's just me, but Chigusa and Kozue seem to take their date with a slight hint of irony. Maybe because they're appropriating a heterosexual ritual... or maybe just because they plan on heading directly to an abandoned place to do ticklish things.

Oh god, another gag choice? Well, fine. Actually, I spoiled what happens here during the last playthrough, but don't let that stop you from being horrified. emot-gonk

D-ko:
Actually, I'm also "taking an appearance,"
but in a totally different way!
To tell you the truth,
I used to be the president of "Crane and Tortoise" Planet!

What, you don't believe me?
In that case, let me show you the proof!

Haaa, slippy slippery,
slippy slippery,
slippy slippy noodles,
slippy slippy, yuck!

Drawing back a string is the way of the bow,
(The stance of a crane is the Crane Fist, which goes like "achou!")

Haaa, mambo! Uh!

Anthy:

+1 GAG POINT

D-ko:
Hah... hah...
Looks like by putting myself out there with a gag,
I managed to change the flow of the conversation.
(Apparently Anthy was amused,
but if it's only Anthy, my performance must have been pretty chancy!)
Man, it must have been boring...
I guess I don't have any comedic sense after all.

D-ko, ladies and gentlemen. emot-rolleyes Because one round of "Slippery Mambo" just wasn't enough.

Notes:
"Crane and Tortoise," or 鶴亀, is apparently a Noh play/dance, and I'm a little bit surprised that D-ko is familiar with it.
"Tsuru," the word for crane, is a pun with tsurutsuru, the descriptive onomotopeia that means slippery or smooth. (The dance is actually the "Tsurutsuru Mambo.")
D-ko's "Anthy/chancy" thing is originally a play on "Anshii" and "anshin," "to be relieved." Yes, D-ko makes terrible puns to herself, in her own mind.



And now, back to the main action.

Utena isn't like that!

He... heheheh... ha ha ha ha ha!
I believe I'll take my leave now.

Chigusa:
Tenjou Utena...
You should make a firm decision about which kind of person you really are.

(Chigusa leaves)

D-ko:
I'm sorry, Utena.
(She was just asking for it.)

Utena:
No, it's fine. I... was kinda glad.

D-ko:
Huh?

Utena:
I mean, I was also kind of surprised, but... thanks.

"I mean, you didn't knock her to the ground, so by Ohtori standards that was a pretty weak-ass slap. But I appreciate the thought."

+2 UTENA
+2 CHIGUSA

D-ko:
t's good that I have a bed now...
but somehow, it feels like kind of a shame.
From now on, I'm going to have to sleep by myself.
I can't sleep, for some reason... what should I do?
Who is it that I'm thinking of?


CHOICE:
Utena (UTENA +2)
Touga (TOUGA +1, CHIGUSA +1)
Saionji (SAIONJI +2)
Juri (JURI +1)
Miki (MIKI +2)
Chigusa (CHIGUSA +1)

Please vote for Chigusa or Touga. Whichever one we choose, we'll encounter both of them, but the dialogue will be different. Who are we thinking of?

Re: Let's Play! Utena, Round 3: The Path Before Us Has Been Prepared

Chigusa! I'd be thinking about her if I'd found her diddling Kozue and then slapped her in the face for calling Utena a "queen" all in one day.

Re: Let's Play! Utena, Round 3: The Path Before Us Has Been Prepared

Okay, this new way of going about the game is WAY more awesome. emot-aaa

Ahh, the witch queen archetype. I kind of like it. Except the overwhelming bitterness.. emot-confused

I would have liked to see Anthy say something too, even just subtle forshadowing..

Kozue/Chigusa scene made me happy. etc-love etc-love I also think of Kozue as a younger queen.

Tempted to vote Chigusa, but I wanna say Touga since it seems like we'll encounter both of them anyway.

Chigusa FTW! (Or in this case, not for the Win. Just for the Black Rose.)

Touga's pick-up lines must have worked on me.  I vote for Touga.
