See here for those interested in coburn‘s commentary on the architecture of Revolutionary Girl Utena. And this is me stealing ideas helping out by doing the same for Utena: Adolescence Apocalypse (the film version). Like the Northern Tribe of Avatar, Ohtori Academy (school that Utena attends) is a fusion of various aesthetics and ideas, integrated beautifully together to become something original. I’d also like to take this opportunity to announce my immense love for the film. Utena the TV series was great, but watching this was something very spirtiual for me (haha…). Anyway, let’s begin with the opening shots.
