At the very least, we need a Juri run like we were doing before we got distracted.  It would make my life a hell of a lot more fulfilled.

Ah...should we call that run through an 'unfulfilled Juri'?.... I know, not very clever but I tried

The perfect ending is not quite the best I think. Even though nobody got hurt and things was resolved, we failed to score a prince. I think I rather go with, better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all!

Score a prince?

Lawls.

Judging by our actions with Juri, Saionji and Miki, it's more like THEY would score a prince.

A silly, silly prince.

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

We totally scored with Touga, what are you talking about? emot-confused

And the playthrough before that, we scored with Akio!

Exactly.

We didn't score a prince.

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

Thanks, Dalbun!  You did an amazing job translating the daunting amount of Japanese in this game.  Especially the wonderful Slippery Mambo and Slippery Mambo Redux! emot-rofl

Here's the original design for Chigusa.  (Please pardon the bad quality.)  Looking at it again, I'm not sure if it looks more like Tokiko or a grown up Mari.

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

Whoa!  I etc-love her original design!  Of course I have to admit to being partial to short hair.  She's very cool looking.  It's a shame they didn't go with this version.  Thanks for sharing it, Ozma!

You haven't played much of these have you, the "best", "good" etc  ending is sometimes not so good storywise. emot-smile
Dallbun,
Thanks very much for the play-through I hope for another.

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

Grown up Mari looks great! She also has a slightly less rediculous top on. She's still far away from gender-neutral; no matter how girly the guys may look, none of them have a cleavage window. And she looks quite a bit older than a student would, like Mikage. Which certainly fits her character, but wouldn't work so well if she appeared the same in her flashbacks.

There never was a prince in this world to begin with. school-devil

...I feel like I walked into that.

I agree with Ico, I think I actually prefer this original look for Chigusa.  The game version looks like she dresses in the dark, to put it kindly.

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

Thanks for all the praise, everyone, and for following along! I 'm glad you all enjoyed the ride so much. It's also cool to raise the community's awareness of an obscure corner of Utena semi-canon. Maybe people will start using Chigusa and Nameless Protagonist in fanfiction now... I want to know what happens when D-ko returns to Ohtori. emot-smile

What, you think I'd abandon all this fame and glory so soon?

Seriously, though. I'm getting a little tired of this game, but there's still some stuff I'd like to see in it, so I may as well make a thread out of it and do one more playthrough. However, I might abandon democracy next time in favor of tyranny. school-devil Also, you might have to wait a little while for me to get started.

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

I'm thinking that the original concept for Chigusa looks a bit like she could be a member of Shiori's family.  That actually might explain a lot.


“You taste so good,” she whispered against my skin, lingering where my neck met my shoulders. “You taste like...”
“If you say eternity,” I said drily, “I’ll get out of the shower right now.”

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

Wow...Chigusa's original design looks cool! emot-smile But I can see why they changed it, though. Chigusa's final design has wispier hair and slanted eyes to make her look eerie and fragile, like a ghost who's truly embraced her position as a witch, whereas the first design reminds me of an older Utena or a short-haired Juri, someone too strong and stable to set a school on fire.

Pleeeeease! How do you obtain Miki's ending??? I've done all I can do!: Utena 63% Miki 123% and the rest 0%. And I still gain the perfect ending! T-T Heeelp!
