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 index of the general symbolism thread!

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 introductions thread if you want to say hi emot-smile

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

Re: Master SKU Analysis Catalogue!

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!

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!

Wow, that is a fantastic thread that I never saw.  The catalogue above definitely needs updating!  I'll put it on my to-do list.

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.

Re: Master SKU Analysis Catalogue!

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.

Re: Master SKU Analysis Catalogue!

The only thing I remember on this was Scott Pilgrim. Someone uploaded a photo of the comic where we could see a poster of Masami Okui and other of Utena and Anthy.
