Re: Let's Play! Utena, Round 2: Don't Get in Cars With Strangers

(Meh. Anyone who's played through the game once knows D-ko is no Dios. There's a difference between trying to help one fellow classmate and going out of your way to turn every female in the world into a codependent wreck.)

Just to clarify something Dalbun briefly mentioned earlier, it's impossible to lose points when talking to any Duelist except for Chigusa. You can treat say, Saionji, as badly as you want in your dialogue options and he'll only start hating you when Chigusa decides it's time for him to hate you. emot-rolleyes

Boyfriend. It's ok, she'll acknowledge the existence of her girlfriend in the end. etc-love

Question for Dalbun: How many percentage points is each rose point on the screen worth?

Re: Let's Play! Utena, Round 2: Don't Get in Cars With Strangers

Do you have a boyfriend? For many reasons! Most importantly because it's how I voted the first time through and I didn't get to see the result. school-sherlock

Boyfriend, though we know that D-ko is just ridiculously bad at gender-differentiation.

Man, good question. I really don't understand how the points work at all, but as far as I could tell last time, the roses don't actually stand for any consistent number of points. At the very least, when Chigusa steals points, she "takes" the same number of roses from everyone, but the exact number of points stolen varies from character to character by a shockingly large margin. I guess I never checked to see if that was the case when we gain points, too.

I'm curious now. From now on, I'm going to track the exact number of points we gain or lose every time the game shows us a rose meter. Let's see if any patterns emerge. school-sherlock

D-ko:
Hey, Utena.

Utena:
What?

D-ko:
Utena, do you have a boyfriend?

Utena:
N, no, I don't!

Wakaba:
Oh yeah? What about that prince you're always talking about?

http://img97.imageshack.us/img97/5264/00000456.png

Utena:
Mind your own business, Wakaba!

Wakaba:
Well, don't lie to this poor new transfer student, then.

Utena:
Fine, fine.

As a fan of the Utena parody dub "Dance Dance Revolution," you have no idea how much I wanted to translate that "mind your own business" line as "fuck off, Wakaba." emot-frown

Utena:
And he gave me this ring. That's my prince. I came to this school to meet him.

But was that really such a good idea?

Actually, really? Utena came to Ohtori to meet her prince in the anime? I thought that was a manga only thing.

D-ko:
Wow... I'm so surprised.
For such a boyish person as Utena to be saying such girlish things...

D-ko:
Hey, what's the "Rose Bride"?
I heard the term this morning.

Utena:
Uh... that's...

Anthy:
That's me.

D-ko:
Huh?

Anthy:
Whoever wins the duels becomes engaged to me, and can obtain the power to revolutionize the world.

Utena:
H... hold on, Himemiya!
It it okay for you to just freely talk about that stuff?

Anthy:
It's fine.

D-ko:
Duels? (You mean like where you meet up and hack away at each other?)

Anthy:
Yes. Using swords, whoever manages to knock the rose from their opponent's chest wins.

D-ko:
You can't be serious.

Utena:
I know, right? Isn't that how any normal person would react?

D-ko:
So... that guy from this morning also...?

Anthy:
Saionji-sempai was Utena's opponent in a previous duel.
Since then, I've been engaged to her.

D-ko:
By "engaged," you mean...?

Anthy:
I do whatever the person I'm engaged to wishes.
I'm presently engaged to Utena-sama, so...

Utena:
Himemiya, knock it off with the "Utena-sama" stuff, okay?

Anthy:
But I'm engaged to you, Utena-sama...

Utena:
Yeah, but...

D-ko:
Duels? Rose Bride? The Power to Revolutionize the World?
It looks like I might have accidentally fallen in with some really dangerous people!
(Maybe I should back off before I get in too deep?)
Here goes...

CHOICE:
I want to become engaged too
Change the subject
Try making a joke (+1 SECRET ANTHY POINT)

I think Anthy is the only person in the series who likes truly terrible jokes. Somehow that isn't too surprising.

Re: Let's Play! Utena, Round 2: Don't Get in Cars With Strangers

Wait...both of the game guides I read said that "saying you want to be engaged" gains you the Anthy point...I mean, that's the one which makes the most sense, b/c it puts you on Anthy's radar that you're a potential prey (er, I meant opportunity) emot-confused So...confused...

Either way, I pick Change the subject. B/c the joke wouldn't be funny if it was a foreign pun, and anyone who chases after Anthy as the Rose Bride automatically becomes a victim. We can't get the Anthy ending, anyways, so it's not like it's a loss.

Yeah, I'm not 100% sure, but joking is the choice that gives us the weird chiming noise that indicates an Anthy point (or so I'm given to understand). Either the guides are wrong about the choice, or the sound, and I suspect it's the former.

We can't get the Anthy ending, anyways, so it's not like it's a loss.

Actually, according to Ozma, we can (and I'd trust Ozma, she has seriously strong fairy magic). I haven't checked myself or anything, though.

Utena:
Unfortunately, it's the truth.
There aren't many of them, but those Student Council people seem really serious about it.
They say they're going to get the power to revolutionize the world.

D-ko:
Huh...

Utena:
But, you probably shouldn't talk about this to anyone else.
If a new transfer student started talking about stuff like that,
people would probably misunderstand and think you're dangerous.

D-ko:
I guess so. I'll be careful.

I didn't translate D-ko's joke faithfully, mostly because I have absolutely no idea what she was trying to say. However, I'm pretty sure it was even lamer than mine. Go ahead and reflect on that for a moment.

Miki:
Okay. There are no objections, so I'll extend her an invitation to the masquerade ball under the Student Council's name. Is that all right?

Touga:
Yes. Thank you, Micky.

Like I've said, Miki is probably the only one who performs any actual student council duties. I mean, Touga hosts parties, but I'll bet he leaves the planning to Nanami.

D-ko:
Here it is... the Fencing Hall that dad described.
It's a really pretty building... like a Western cathedral.
The doors are huge, and the window frames are so decorated!
For some reason, I feel like I'm in another world.
I feel like some sightseeing yokel...
Still, I guess I'll poke my head and and take a look!


http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/8736/00000043.png

D-ko:
Nobody's here... I guess there's no practice today?

http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/4803/00000046.png

D-ko:
Looks like they have thirty members.
That's quite a few, right?
I mean, my last school didn't even have a Fencing Club.
This first name tag must be the club president.
So the president is Sanjouin Chigusa, huh?
What a great name. (It's really unusual.)
Hmm? It looks like there's no name tag for the club adviser.
Do they not have one?
But that's strange... my dad used to be the club adviser.
I guess maybe the system changed between then and now?


http://img196.imageshack.us/img196/9886/00000047.png

D-ko:
Yep, looks like nobody's here.
Today must be a break from practice.
Huh? It looks like something is drawn on that wall.
I wonder why?


CHOICE:
Look at the wall
Look at the calendar

Not only can you look at both of them, you have to. So... not stopping for a vote this time.

D-ko:
What the heck is this?
If it's graffiti, it's pretty audacious.
Hey, isn't this that guy from this morning?
I think he was called Saionji...
And this figure looks like Utena.
What does it mean?
Anyway, nobody's here.
I guess there must not be any practice today.


CHOICE:
Look at the calendar

http://ohtori.nu/gallery/var/resizes/Game/Screenshots/Game_Cap_019.jpg?m=1380881920
D-ko:
Man, what a tasteless calendar.
The 25th is circled... I wonder if there's a match then.
Wait, these dates...
Isn't this calendar from fifteen years ago? Weird.
Anyway, nobody's here.
I guess there must not be any practice today.


CHOICE:
Look at the lockers

D-ko:
Hey, there's just one locker that's open.
I wonder whose?
"Sanjouin"...
Oh, it's the captain's?
Must have forgotten to lock it.
Let's see...

(Music: Temptation, D3T14)

Chigusa:
Hands off!

D-ko:
Who's this?
Are they from the Fencing Club?
Is it a man? Or a woman?
Somehow, they're so gorgeous,
I have the urge to come closer...
But it's not a bad feeling.
This must be the sort of person people mean
when they say someone's "aristocratic."
I guess people like this, like out of a story or a play,
also exist in real life...


Chigusa:
Who is it?

D-ko:
Umm, my name's Kageno D-ko,
I just transferred here today...

Chigusa:
What did you say?
...please, repeat your name.

D-ko:
Don't make that scary face...
...Kageno D-ko.

Chigusa:
Your father's name is Masaomi. (雅臣, elegant-retainer)
Your mother's name is Koto? (湖都, lake-city)

D-ko:
How do you...?

Chigusa:
............ (sound of almost starting to say something but then stopping)

D-ko:
She turned away.
But isn't she still making that scary face?


Chigusa:
Only club members are allowed to enter here.
There are personal things kept here.
You wouldn't want to be called a thief.

D-ko:
A, right! I'm sorry.

(outside)
D-ko:
Wow, I was surprised.
I guess I shouldn't just freely entered after all.
Even so, that person was really beautiful...
it seemed unreal.
And those three from this morning...
and the Chairman...
Ohtori Academy really is different.

Yep, "Sanjouin Chigusa" sure is an unusual name, and that blue haired male-or-female person sure is striking. There's no way D-ko will forget both those things, and fail to connect them with the new transfer student tomorrow. emot-rolleyes

(Music: After School Girls, D2T11)

D-ko:
Oh, it's Utena!
Of course... when she saw my bags,
she must have known I'd be living here.


Utena:
Welcome to the East Dorm!

http://ohtori.nu/gallery/var/resizes/Game/Screenshots/Game_Cap_021.jpg?m=1380881921

Anthy:
Your bags have arrived.

D-ko:
Thanks!

Utena:
Your room is 22, on the second floor.
It's next door to ours.

http://ohtori.nu/gallery/var/resizes/Game/Screenshots/Setting%20Shots/Game_Background_006.jpg?m=1380882940
Anthy:
Please, make yourself at home.

D-ko:
Did you clean it for me!?

Utena:
All I did was bring up your bags.
Anthy's the one who cleaned it.

D-ko:
Thank you, Anthy!

Anthy:
You're welcome.

"It's the least I could do, after you cracked me up with that hilarious 'duel' joke."

Chu-Chu:
Chuu.

(Music: Memory of an Idea, D1T19)

D-ko:
Huh?

Chu-Chu:
Chuu chuu.

D-ko:
What's that voice?
Nobody else is here...
is it just my imagination?
I must be pretty tired after all.


Chu-Chu:
Chuuu.

D-ko:
N, no, I definitely heard it...
Utena, something's in this room!

Utena:
Oh, right!
Chu-Chu is visiting, too.
Sorry, sorry!
I'll introduce you. This is East Dorm's third resident, our friend...
Chu-Chu.

http://img160.imageshack.us/img160/338/00000054.png

(Music: Panorama of the Full Bloom, D2T12)

Chu-Chu:
Chuu.

D-ko:
So wait, the third resident is...

Utena:
Yeah. It's him.

Chu-Chu:
Chu chuu.

D-ko:
It's a monkey... I think.
Well, then...

Hello, I'm Kageno D-ko.
We'll be living together from today on.
It's nice to meet you, Chu-Chu.

Chu-Chu:
Chu chu.

Utena:
Nice, Chu-Chu, you have a new friend!

Chu-Chu:
Chuu.

Utena:
Hey, D-ko, do you wanna come to our room and have some tea?
Himemiya's preparing it for us.

Anthy:
It will be done soon, Utena-sama.

D-ko:
Is it okay? In that case, I guess I'll impose on you...

http://ohtori.nu/gallery/var/resizes/Game/Screenshots/Game_Cap_022.jpg?m=1380881921

http://img121.imageshack.us/img121/3434/00000467.png

Anthy:
By the way, this arrived from the Student Council.

D-ko:
Huh, what's this? A message card? Some kind of invitation?
No way it's a love letter, right?

Anthy:
And this one is for you, Utena-sama.

D-ko:
What about you, Anthy?

Anthy:
I have one, too.

Utena:
Let's see, what is this...
A masquerade!?

http://ohtori.nu/gallery/var/resizes/Game/Screenshots/Game_Cap_023.jpg?m=1380881921

Anthy:
Yes. It says it's starting at 6 o'clock tonight,
and is sponsored by the Student Council.
It says transfer students should also definitely come.

D-ko:
A masquerade!
At my old school, we just had folk dances...
The more I learn, the more it feels like this is a totally different world.


Utena:
Well, that's what it says.
What should we do?

D-ko:
Hmmm... but I don't have any dress to wear to a ball...

Anthy:
That's all right. I can lend you one.

D-ko:
Eeh? Is it really okay?

Anthy:
Of course.

http://img718.imageshack.us/img718/4930/00000469.png

Chu-Chu:
Chuu...

Utena:
Alright! If that's decided,
let's get going right away.

D-ko:
Yeah!

RSVPs in advance aren't necessary for Student Council parties. They know that everyone invited will show up. cool

(Music: bal, D5-1 T8)

http://img444.imageshack.us/img444/1398/00000058.png

D-ko:
Wow... my first masquerade!

(Music: something in between Paradise of Reminiscence, D1T14 and The One Who Shoots at the Sun, D1T17, I guess?)

D-ko:
So this is a party organized by the Student Council?
Wow, that chandelier is so high up!
The food on the tables is all stuff I've never seen before, too...

http://img114.imageshack.us/img114/4358/00000064.png

Miki:
Welcome, Himemiya-san, Tenjou-sempai.

D-ko:
My heart just thumped... what a cute boy!
He has such pretty eyes... they're like crystals.


http://ohtori.nu/gallery/var/resizes/Game/Screenshots/Game_Cap_024.jpg?m=1380881921

Utena:
Hey, Mickey.

http://ohtori.nu/gallery/var/resizes/Game/Screenshots/Game_Cap_025.jpg?m=1380881921

Anthy:
Thank you for the invitation.

Miki:
Wow, Himemiya-san, your dress is so pretty!
You look like a blooming flower.

Anthy:
Why, thank you.

Utena:
Yeah, and our masks are only stuck on so well because Himemiya knew how to do it.
(It must be the power of love!)

Miki:
Please, don't make fun of me! (awkward giggle)
(You don't normally come to these balls, Tenjou-sampai.)

Utena:
Yeah, I don't like flitting around at this sort of thing.
Hey, why aren't you wearing a mask, Micky?

Miki:
Because we Student Council members are the hosts.
It would be a problem if the guests couldn't mingle with us.
Now, this person is...?

Utena:
Oh, I'll introduce you.
She just transferred here today. Her name is...

D-ko:
Um, Kageno D-ko!

Miki:
Nice to meet you.
I'm Kaoru Miki. I'm a first-year in the Middle School.

Utena:
Micky here is a fencer and pianist at the national level,
and he's taking university-level courses, too. He's totally brilliant.

D-ko:
Wow...
And he's younger than me. I wonder what I should talk about?

CHOICE:
Praise his beautiful eyes (+1 MIKI)
Make a little joke

Man, this must be the longest section without a (significant) choice in the entire game. emot-frown
