Damn, those umbrellas are indeed amazing. The bags are really nice too. How to order in English, I wonder...?

There's a click-through for English at the bottom, but without registering, I can't really tell if that's for the same site/company or if it's an external banner ad thing. Worth a try, though, if you're really ready to buy.

Re: New Utena stuff

MOTHERFUCKER

Okay how is the quality on this stuff? Anyone know? Like...I get it's expensive as balls, but is it expensive as balls and then the bag/whatever will fall apart in a week?

I'm an absolute sucker for nerdy shit that isn't name branded, so that it flies under the radar unless someone recognizes it.

If you're asking about Super Groupies merch, in my experience pretty nice. I trust them. I used the Shadow Play Girls bag (http://www.super-groupies.com/special/f … tem1_1.jpg) almost every day for maybe 2 years before retiring it due to worries about possible wear on the corners. I still regret not buying some of the clothing I saw in person in Ikebukuro a while back, too. I know what you mean, though, if the Utena stuff at that time hadn't been in a physical display, I probably wouldn't have bought it.

The black bag is what I want. I've needed a new purse for like two years now and it's so so pretty...

Are those earbuds selling now?
If you're asking about Super Groupies, this is the page for Utena http://www.super-groupies.com/products/ … itle_id=37
Most of those items have passed the reservation date and now show as "sold out" but you can hit a button to tell them you want more/sign up in case more are made. It's a button on the right side that says something like 気 入り and will ask for email, etc. when clicked.

;_;  I guess I'll have to wait for someone to ebay those umbrellas and the purses too...

So... With Utena being internationally recognized for it's influence on things like Steven Universe, My Little Pony FIM, and Star Vs. The Forces of Evil, why isn't there more merch out there or a revival for it like we're seeing for Sailor Moon?

Re: New Utena stuff

...I am surprised you haven't guessed.

Utena, as much as we love it is still a cult phenomena. Sailor Moon got a redub and all because it sells like gangbusters. And unfortunately, the LBGT, incest and abuse issues confronted in Utena makes for a much, much lower chance of it being redubbed-but also in that while Utena's dub is bargain basement quality, it at least gets the script across fairly well and isn't nearly as censored as Sailor Moon was, especially at SM's worst moments.

Utena just doesn't sell as well and lacks the mass appeal of Sailor Moon. And it's not bad enough to earn a redub, like Escaflowne was and is.

That's the sad truth.

Re: New Utena stuff

That, and Sailor Moon's revival is being driven by new anime.  The newer Utena merchandise resurgence came largely in the years following its Blu-ray release in Japan (which I sure am glad coincided with my time living there, woo), and frankly, it's kind of amazing that *anything* is still being made now.  At least we still have a Figma to look forward to, too!

The Anthy Figure was cancelled. Is there another figure set on the way? edit Oh I see the crunchy roll update http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2 … p-of-figma

Honestly I was hoping with the love of Utena that it would get a new anime.  Then I think about what that might look like when Ikuhara has said "If I could do it again we'd use guns instead of swords" I appreciate that we have the anime as it is.

I gotta get my hands on those remastered DVDs... I have a pirated copy (I know... I'm the:devil:) of them but they are lacking the commentary which is what I'm most interested in.

Seems like a company called Print Charamide is releasing a series of cards with "your favorite scenes" - animation cel art - printed on them. I'm guessing charamide= character + bromide, as in bromide trading cards. The link included says they will sell in seven elevens across Japan as of today, Japan time.

That acrylic calendar is lovely.

Re: New Utena stuff

I saw a sponsored-ish post on my Tumblr dash from Hot Topic that had Utena and Anthy in it. I have no idea if this is just anime-month related, or if it means that they have and/or will have SKU material for sale. I really do want to see if it's the latter or not.

Re: New Utena stuff

For anyone interested (and I didn't see anyone post about it yet - if so, sorry!), I finally bought a copy of the new Viz manga set from Amazon and it is BEAUTIFUL. The paper quality in this release is wonderful, on par with some of the Sailor Moon Kanzenban volumes and VizBIG Dragon Ball volumes I own. I'd never read the manga before, but the artwork is beautiful, and printing appears crisp and clean. Each book begins with a few pages of coloured art (none of which is new, as far as I know, but still lovely to have). I'm assuming the translation is the same as the original Viz release, and it reads very well so far. My only disappointment is the translation of "End of the World" as "World's End", although the latter isn't incorrect, I guess.

The books are a bit heavy since each one contains 3 manga volumes (Vol. 1 - 3 in Book 1, Vol. 4 - 5 + Adolescence in Book 2) and is hard covered, but the binding seems durable and sturdy, and the cover art for each is also gorgeous. In short, another beautiful release for Utena. I'm glad Viz took the time and effort to give it such a great release! Now I'm looking forward to what will hopefully be another great release of the anime on blu ray later this year emot-smile

Re: New Utena stuff

The translation is almost the same, but I did notice they finally fixed a misplaced/duplicated line in [Ruka's chapter]. There might be more updates that are more subtle too.

Also, while none of the art may be new, there's at least one that isn't in the Ohtori.nu gallery... I think it's one of the cast dressed as yokai or something similar? I just looked at the new edition at a library once so I can't check but that's what I remember.
