SCRIPT (episode 11; version 1.0; 9/9/1998)

OP         Heroically, with bravery
OP         I'll go on with my life,
OP         just a long, long time.
OP         But if the two of us should get split up
OP         by whatever means,
OP         let go of me,
OP         Take my revolution.
Title      Utena ~ La Fillette Revolutionnaire
OP         In the sunny garden, we held each other's hands,
OP         drew close together and soothed each other with the
OP         "Neither of us will ever fall in love again."
OP         Everytime
OP         Into this photograph of us
OP         smiling cheek to cheek,
OP         I took a bit of loneliness,

OP         Heroically, I'll throw away
OP         my clothes 'til I'm nude,

OP         I swear to you, I will change the world.

Utena It feels so good to have lunch outdoors for a change. Wakaba You bet! You bet! Wakaba I'm so smart to suggest it, aren't I? Wakaba Here here here... Wakaba See, I made some for you too. Utena But I... Wakaba No way. Such a tasteless lunch would be boring, right? Wakaba Instead of that, have some of this lunch full of my love for Utena-sama! Wakaba Look... Look! LOOK! Utena Yeah... Wakaba I'm so glad! Utena Cut it out already! Title Graceful and Ruthless; The One Who Picks the Flower Wakaba Now, don't be too surprised! Tah-dah! Wakaba Basically these are prepackaged food, but the forms look super-pretty, don't they? Utena Well, love or not, there's no doubt they look delicious. Utena Thanks, Wakaba. Wakaba All right! Wakaba Now that makes my cooking effort pay off! Wakaba That's just like you, Wakaba-chan! Well done! Anthy Utena-sama... Anthy Would you take a look at my lunch, too? Utena If it isn't shaved ice again... Anthy Here. Utena Wow, that's quite a lot. Wakaba Impressive... Anthy Please, have some. Utena The first layer is... Wakaba Takoyaki... aren't they? Anthy Yes. Utena And the second layer... Wakaba Yakisoba... okay, okay... Anthy It looks delicious, doesn't it? Utena The third layer is... Anthy Oh, my! Utena Well, what do you know! Pretty normal, although it's like food from a temple festival or something. Wakaba "Pretty normal?" What kind of lunch were you expecting? Utena Uh, let's talk about it after we eat. Miki What do you see? Touga Oh, it's you. Touga I see a lonely princess. Miki Tenjou-sempai, and Himemiya-san, too. Looks like they're enjoying themselves. Miki But by a lonely princess, you mean...? Touga You can't see her. Touga No one can see her but me. Miki You mean it's an illusion? Touga Oh, she really exists. Touga She's visible and tangible. Wakaba Bravo! Bravo! Wakaba What're you looking at, Utena? Utena Oh, nothing. Wakaba A-ha, it's the Prince of the Student Council. Utena "Prince?" Utena That time, he definitely said... Touga "Wasn't your prince someone like me?" Utena If that's true, then is Mr. President my prince from back then? Anthy Bravo! Bravo! Wakaba Are you alright, eating like that? Touga If the egg's shell does not break, the chick will die without being born. Touga We are the chick; the egg is the world. Touga If the world's shell does not break, we will die without being born. Touga Break the world's shell! Touga,Juri For the sake of revolutionizing the world! Touga As you may already know, Touga Nanami lost the Duel to Tenjou Utena. Touga I'm ashamed to say, the difference in their abilities was made clear. Juri As it was from the start. Juri Nanami-kun fought only to lose... Juri ...just as Student Council President Kiryuu Touga had planned, right? Touga It's regrettable that you see it that way. Touga Since I always try to treat Nanami with affection... Miki Like a pet cat? Miki 6.12 seconds... Touga It was her own fault that Nanami lost the Duel. Touga Whether it was someone's plot or not, Touga joining into it was her own responsibility. Juri How cold. Touga There can be times when the depths of one's feelings can lead them astray. Touga The greater those feelings, the further they are led. Touga "Wasn't your prince someone like me?" Touga Well and truly beautiful... Touga And this breed is said to be very difficult. Anthy Thank you very much. Touga By the way, you all were having lunch outside today, weren't you? Anthy Yes. You saw, didn't you? Anthy With Utena-sama, Wakaba-san, and Chuchu. Anthy It was a lot of fun. Touga That's excellent. Anthy Wakaba-san's lunch was so delicious. Anthy I want to make a dish like that. Touga The Rose Bride, cooking? Touga You shouldn't do such things as cooking. Touga You should only take care of the roses here. Touga This birdcage is your territory. Touga And you are the beautiful little bird which lives here. Touga I want to possess this birdcage, and everything in it. Touga I would never take you out from here, ever... Touga Forever... Utena Stay away from Himemiya! Touga Hi, I'm glad you've come. Utena You don't see Himemiya as anything but the Rose Bride either, do you? Touga Is that wrong? Utena It is wrong! Utena Cut it out with that "Rose Bride" or "possession" nonsense. Utena That girl is an ordinary girl named Himemiya Anthy! Touga Is she? Touga Is it true that you're an ordinary girl? Utena You don't like it, do you? Utena Being the Rose Bride or whatever... Anthy I... Utena Go ahead, speak your mind! Anthy My mind... Utena Yeah! Utena You hate being treated as the Rose Bride, right? Utena Tell him clearly! Anthy All right. Anthy I hate being treated as the Rose Bride. Utena What's so funny? Touga Nothing. Pardon me. Touga This girl is certainly your bride, isn't she? Touga Here. Utena What do you want with Himemiya? Touga With her, nothing. Touga I thought I could get to see you here. Touga I was waiting for you. Utena What do you want with me? Touga As your prince, I have something important to tell you. Utena Prince? Utena Then... Utena Then Mr. President is my prince after all...? Touga You were crying then... Touga ...shedding so many sparkling tears. Utena Yes, Utena I was crying then. Utena Are you really the one who saved me that time? Touga Do you want proof? Utena Proof? Touga Now, didn't it feel something like this? Utena He's going to kiss me... Utena But then, it... Utena ...felt like this. Touga Excuse me. It was imprudent... Touga Two Duelists, in front of the Rose Bride... Touga Well, then... Touga that something important I had to tell you... Touga Tenjou Utena, I challenge you to a Duel.
Utena I had... Utena completely forgotten that Kiryuu Touga was a Duelist. Utena But... Utena that Prince who saved me when I was little... Utena I came to this school because I wanted to meet him. Utena To think that one and only tie is going to make me fight my prince... Utena If it weren't for this ring... Anthy Utena-sama, Anthy the tea is ready. Anthy Utena-sama, how did you like my lunch? Utena Ah, it was delicious. Thanks. Wakaba said it was pretty good, too. Anthy I'm glad. Anthy And Wakaba-san is a fun person, isn't she? Utena Yeah, she's a good friend who makes me feel happy whenever she's with me. Utena Why don't you become her friend, too, Himemiya? Utena Oh, yeah, you have Chuchu. Utena I guess Chuchu's as much fun as ten people for you, then? Anthy I... Anthy I wish I could become her friend, too. Utena You can! I know you can! Utena Open your heart and talk to people, and anybody would accept you, I'm sure. Anthy Open my heart? Utena Right. You'll be fine. I'll help you. Anthy Yes. Utena That's right, I've got to protect Himemiya. Utena If anyone can return her to being a normal girl, it's me. Utena I can't let anyone else have her. Utena Not even my own prince. A-ko Now, my son, stand with this apple on your head! B-ko Yes, Pop, but... B-ko Well done, Pop! B-ko But it was the 37919th already. B-ko How long do we have to do this for? A-ko Until the doctor stops us, I suppose... A-ko Hold your tongue, my son, and stand with this apple on your head! B-ko Yes, Pop! B-ko But why wouldn't the lord release us after we succeeded once? A-ko Don't make me think! B-ko Misery! O Misery! What fate is in store for the Tells, as he has become a shooting machine? A-ko I wonder, I wonder... do you know what I wonder? B-ko Aim a bit higher, Pop... A-ko Oops.

Utena Are you sure we must fight? Touga Well, sorry to cut into your busy schedule, but... Touga Shall we begin, Tenjou-kun? Anthy O roses of the noble castle, Anthy O Power of Dios that slumbers within me, Anthy Harken unto thy master and reveal to us... Utena ...the power to revolutionize the world! Touga Give no quarter. Underestimating your opponent in a duel could prove fatal. Touga With that in mind, advance! Fuuin Unwritten seal spell Fuuin iron mask of misfortune Touga Tenjou Utena is merely an amateur at swordfighting. Touga However, the problem is when the Power of Dios appears... Fuuin blue skies - sea - then the wind blows Touga Now, Tenjou Utena... Utena I can't lose... Fuuin grassland - rabbits - even the river flows Touga Show me the Power of Dios! Fuuin Time, the era does not change. Fuuin Time, the era is something existent and nonexistent. Fuuin Man is described by the blood of "make-believe" Fuuin Man also drowns in a flood of "lessons" Fuuin All the word handed down is that a man is a man. Fuuin Without metamorphosis! Fuuin In the daytime I can see it, in the nighttime I cannot. Touga "Wasn't your prince... Fuuin In the nighttime I can see it, in the daytime I cannot. Touga ...a guy like me?" Fuuin Anagram Utena Prince... Fuuin Those puzzle words, those masks of words Fuuin The source of which is... Fuuin dich! Touga It's better this way, isn't it? Touga You needn't involve yourself in such meaningless duels any more, as you wished. Touga Shall we go, Anthy? Utena Wait. Utena Don't take Himemiya. Utena Himemiya wants to go back to being a normal girl. Utena I can't be separated from her! Utena I don't want the power to revolutionize the world, but Himemiya needs me! Touga You don't understand anything. Utena It's true! Himemiya told me she wanted friends! Utena Without me, she'll be all alone again! Touga Anthy... Anthy Yes. Touga You are happy as the Rose Bride, aren't you? Anthy I... Anthy happy as the Rose Bride. Touga You don't want any friends. You like being alone, right? Anthy Yes, I like being by myself. Touga Tenjou-kun, this is how it is. Touga Himemiya Anthy is the Bride of the victor of the Duel. Touga While she was engaged to you, the Code required her to obey you. Utena You're lying... Touga The Rose Bride answered the wishes of her master. Touga To make her an ordinary girl was merely what you wished. Utena It's a lie... Touga Now that you have lost the Duel, the connection between you two is severed. Touga Forget all about her, and about this Duel. Utena It's a lie! Utena It's a lie, right, Himemiya? Tell me the truth! Utena Didn't you tell me that you hated being the Rose Bride...that you wanted to make friends?! Touga Anthy, bid your farewell. Anthy Take it easy, Tenjou-san. Utena's a lie... Utena It's a lie... Utena It's a lie! Utena IT'S A LIE!!
ED Missing truth and forever ED Kissing love and true your heart ED Embrace me with your true arms ED The key to open up tomorrow is reality ED I want to keep on destroying lies. ED Even if we keep on talking, ED you still won't ever see. ED Excuses really suit adults ED who hang on to old stories. ED Because unchosen angels ED have no need for wings.

Utena Next time on Shoujo Kakumei Utena: Perhaps for Friendship's Sake Anthy The Absolute Destiny: Apocalypse.


Wakaba     Basically these are prepackaged food, but the forms
	   look super-pretty, don't they?
In Japanese, Wakaba says "retort food." "Retort" is a vacuumed plastic, aluminum package of some special kind of technology. In Japan, if you go to a glossary store or convenience store, you can find a lot of ready-to-eat prepackaged foods in "retort packages".

Wakaba     Takoyaki... aren't they?
See the translator's note for episode 4 for the description of takoyaki.

Wakaba     Yakisoba... okay, okay...
"Yakisoba," also known by its Chinese name "chow mein," is a Chinese noodle dish fried in oil with meat and vegetables.

Utena      Well, what do you know! Pretty normal, although
	   it's like food from a temple festival or something.
In Japanese, she says "It's kind of like `ennichi'." "Ennichi" is a f'ete day of a deity which is believed to be when Gods and Buddha come closest to our world. It is believed that if you visit a temple or shrine and pray this day, you get the greatest merit. Temples and shrines hold a festival this day, and that's also called "ennichi." At the festival, they open some booths and sell foods, toys, good-luck charms, and other goods. The reason why Utena says Anthy's lunch is like "ennichi" is that "takoyaki" and "yakisoba" are common foods you can find at "ennichi" booths.

Anthy      Take it easy, Tenjou-san.
Note that Anthy had been using the very respectful suffix "-sama" all this time, but after the duel she only uses "-san."
Fuuin      The source of which is...
Fuuin       dich!
"Dich" is the German word for "you."
