Hi! I came here from tumblr because of the new manga chapter. I watched Utena a few years ago, and if it had been a bit earlier, I probably would've joined here a long time ago. As it is, this is the first forum I've joined in a long time! Anyway, nice to meet you all. emot-biggrin

Re: [Welcome] Introduce yourself here!!

Hiya all! I lurked here from time to time and finally decided to introduce myself (and hopefully join some discussions).
I watched Utena for the first time when I was 14 or so. Of course didn't understand even one third of symbolism, but along with Sailor Moon it sparked my never-fading love for fabulous (max) and it's my favourite series ever since. Nice to meet you all!

Welcome!!!

It's always surprising to me how young some people were when they saw SKU. Like...I think it would have seriously messed me up at that age...is a thing I started typing, until I did the math.

I was 15. emot-gonk


Akio, you have nice turns of phrase, but your points aren't clear and you have no textual support. I can't give this a passing grade.

Re: [Welcome] Introduce yourself here!!

Hey! I'm an Utena fan since I was 14. Which wasn't that long ago but still! Utena is a special thing for me indeed, it was a love from the first glance at a poster, SOMEHOW I knew I'd REALLY like it. Which was really weird since I'm not into that pretty shoujo aestetic at all. But I just knew this one would be SPESHUL. Which it was!
I've been read-only for a pretty long time, but decided I also have some things I want to say! Hopefully I'll remember what those were...

Re: [Welcome] Introduce yourself here!!

I'm new here! I was a HUGE OBSESSED Utena fan back in the 90s and early 2000s. It is really strange and amazing that there is this huge fan collective nowadays, enabled by the internet. I'd been feeling super nostalgic and found this place. YAY!

Re: [Welcome] Introduce yourself here!!

Hello everyone! Prince David here, and glad to have discovered this forum. I am a long time Utena fan since back in 2000 when I first saw it at my anime club, Terrapin Anime Society at the University of Maryland. I was extremely shy with horrible social anxieties back then and was introduced to the show at a time when I myself was transitioning into adulthood. I have always been a big fan of Touga. I always wanted to be cool and handsome like him someday. I loved his confidence and that's something I still aspire to in myself to this day. I had intended to dress up as him in his movie black uniform. I got the wig but my friend ended up not having the time to make the costume so it didn't happen. Utena is a series that really means a lot to me.

Other than that, for me personally I am now a software developer in his 30s. I am a huge rhythm gamer, particularly with DDR. Really got into Touhou this year and in general love arcade shoot-em-ups. I also do live streaming on Twitch & Youtube (twitch is prince_david and youtube is princedavid0) I still love the anime art style but it's hard to find many series that really grab my attention these days.

Nice to meet you all.

Re: [Welcome] Introduce yourself here!!

It seems strange to finally be making an account on this legendary site. It's stayed with me for years, and I think I went in high school from watching Utena straight right into reading into everything on this site and forums (thanks Gio and Yasha, a lot-- ). As I've currently reinvigorated my love for the series and am embarking on both writing for it and drawing for it, I thought I'd just say hi to everyone. Utena got me through university, and revisiting it after my career path's trajectory and into adulthood has made me change my opinions on so many characters.

Anyway, hi, longtime fan and lurker.

Re: [Welcome] Introduce yourself here!!

Hi! I made an account before but then forgot the email for it, so now I'm here again! I'm mostly on Discord nowadays but I'll try to post some things on here as well.

Not much about me besides I'm NB (she/they), I like Utena, Star Wars, complicated flawed female characters, AIs/dolls, fantasy/sci-fi, and some Marvel/DC movies. I'm in uni right now, it's kicking my ass, and my favorite RGU characters are Anthy and Mikage! (And Juri, Utena, Shiori, Nanami, Kozue). I also just got into Pokemon SM/USM and I love cats and cephalopods (squids, octopus, all those cuties). That's pretty much it!

Also if you guys have any movies/TV shows that also features flawed, vicious, terrible, complicated, etc female characters, esp WOC, let me know! I ran out of stuff to watch and I need more.

Re: [Welcome] Introduce yourself here!!

Okay, I'm finally writing this! (I tend to dislike forums, so I've been slow.)

My name is Caro. I got into Utena when it was still pretty new. I recall the series had ended, but the movie wasn't out yet. I think it was 1998. I had just moved out of my parents' house and was 19. A friend of mine at the time recommended it, though she swore up and down Utena and Anthy weren't in love when I asked. I immediately loved it, (though my preference for the dub is recent. A few voices I'm still not crazy about, but several of them I adore!). My appreciation has grown over the years. I suppose that's natural, as it's one of the series you have to watch several times to figure out, and you see something new in it each time. Kozue was my favourite character at first, but Shiori took over about 13-14 years ago. Interestingly enough, that pretty much coincided with my coming to grips with my own bisexuality. (Unfortunately, my first gf was a lesbian Akio. The less said about her, the better.)

I'm really into Naruto, though I disliked Shippuden. I watch Boruto mostly for Mitsuki and Chocho. Rock Lee and His Ninja Pals is possibly the greatest show of all time. I loved the original Japanese Sailor Moon, but haven't bothered with the newer versions. Also, I love cosplay, but I don't like going to cons as I have social anxiety. (Anthy at the ball is exactly what I'm like in a massive crowd.) I did cosplay as Shiori four years ago at Akon, but didn't get any pictures and now I don't fit the seifuku. I'm working on it, though! My drawing abilities have worsened with age, but I'm getting better with fanfics. I have a few Utena fics planned, but am only seriously working on one at the moment.

I have million other obsessions (mostly nerdy), but it'd take forever to type them up. The Monkees would be high on the list, though.
