SCRIPT (episode 14; version 1.0; 11/23/1998)

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         and crammed it inside.
OP         Revolution!
OP         Even in my dreams, even through my tears,
OP         even though I'm being hurt,
OP         reality is approaching now, frantically.
OP         What I want now is to find out
OP         just where I belong,
OP         and my self-worth, up through today.
OP         Heroically, I'll throw away
OP         my clothes 'til I'm nude,
OP         like the roses dancing all around me, whirling
OP         But if the two of us should get split up
OP         by whatever means,
OP         I swear to you, I will change the world.

Mikage How is it that this rose... Mikage can flower here in the bowels of the earth, where the sun never shines? Mamiya Because my black rose is absorbing the darkness. Mamiya Say, Sempai... Mamiya I've heard that Student Council President Kiryuu has been absent from school lately. Mamiya It would explain why the academy has been so quiet recently. Mikage Well, that's good. Mikage A proper academy should be a peaceful place for study. taitoru The Boys of the Black Rose Anthy Then, if you'll excuse me. Utena I'm home, Chuchu! Utena My class had a party, it being Saturday and all. Utena Your master should have been there, too. Utena She's always so unsociable... Utena I'm home, Himemiya! Utena What, she's not here? Utena It's leftovers from the party. Utena Man, I'm tired. Utena Come to think of it, I hardly ever see Himemiya on Saturday night. Utena Chuchu, do you know something about that? Anthy Oh, Utena-sama. Utena Hi. Where have you been? Anthy At school. Utena I see. Utena It seems like you're never around most weekend nights. Is something going on? Anthy Yes, because I've been told that we should meet at least once a week. Utena Meet who? Anthy My older brother. Utena Ohh... Utena What?! You have a brother?! Utena Excuse us! Utena Oops, wrong floor. Anthy No, this is the place. Utena So, this is the Trustee Chairman's Office... Utena Looks like a tough place to keep clean. Utena That's huge! Is this your brother? Anthy No, this is a planetarium projector. Utena Huh? Anthy Utena-sama? Utena Shh... Utena Bad timing, Himemiya. They're making out. Utena Let's split before we get in the way. Akio Pleased to meet you. I'm Ohtori Akio. Utena Pardon me. I'm Tenjou Utena. Pardon me. Akio Not at all. It was good of you to come. Akio I'm glad because this is the first time my sister has introduced a friend of hers to me. Utena No way... You're Ohtori Academy's - Akio No. I'm just the Deputy Trustee Chairman. Akio The real Trustee Chairman is Kanae-san's father. Kanae My father is quite taken with Akio-san, Kanae and he intends to let me marry him as soon as I've graduated high school. Utena Well, congratulations. Akio I keep telling her it's too soon, but... Utena I never knew the Trustee Chairman's Office was like this. Akio In truth, I'm best suited to spending my time watching the sky. Utena You like the stars, then? Kanae So much so that it's almost abnormal. Kanae And it's been rumored that he was adopted into my family just for this equipment. Kanae I hear he stayed here again last night. Akio Stars are nice. Akio Look through the telescope at those familiar stars, and you can see the true faces that no one knows. Kanae Remember me too once in a while, okay? Akio If I discover a comet, I'll name it after you. Kanae Really, you're such a hopeless guy. Akio I haven't been here long, but there is one thing I do know... Akio The students of this academy are all free, have a love of learning, Akio and above all, do not fight. Akio Right? Utena I hope it always stays that way. Kanae Nothing bad ever happens at Ohtori Academy. Anthy Well then, if you'll excuse us, Kanae-san... Kanae Say... Kanae It's okay for you to call me Sis, since I really will be your big sister very soon. Anthy All right. Professor Thank you, Mikage-kun. Professor Thanks to your paper, our research lab was selected as the consultative body. Mikage That wasn't my paper, but rather yours, Professor. Professor Hey, hurry up with the gift! Professor My wife went to a spa a few days ago, and she insisted I give you this. Professor Hey. Professor Sorry for the runaround... Professor This might not be enough, but we'd like you to accept it. Mikage There's no need to pay me. Mikage Instead, I may ask you for your help someday soon. Mikage I'll be counting on you then. Professor Of course, we'll cooperate with you in whatever way we can. Professor So that was the charismatic high schooler who hosts the Mikage Seminar. Professor What an overpowering presence! I was scared stiff. Professor The Mikage Seminar, also known as the Black Rose Society... Professor It's not just a rumor that there's even a career bureaucrat who's a member. Professor As recipients of his favor, we college faculty can't say it's anyone else's business. Professor Genius high schooler, Mikage Souji... Mikage So tell me, have you thought about our last conversation? Miki Y- Yes... Mikage I could hardly wait. So? Miki I deeply appreciate your kind offer, Miki but I'm afraid I'm unworthy of your seminar, Mikage-sempai. Mikage I see. Mikage An excellent intellect like yours would have been just the thing I was looking for. Mikage But, if that's your position, okay. Mikage Tell me if you ever change your mind. You won't regret it. Miki Thank you very much. See you later. Anthy Thank you very much, Utena-sama. Utena Huh? What for? Anthy For not telling my brother about my secrets. Utena Oh, that. Anthy I don't want him to know about anything that might worry him. Anthy Like me being the Rose Bride, or the Duellist's Code... Utena I get it. Utena It's best for us to keep these things secret from your brother. Utena Kanae-san looks to be a nice person, too. It'd be a shame if they got caught up in it. Utena Now, let's go home. Miki Oh, Tenjou-sempai, Himemiya-san! Utena Micky! Anthy Hello. Miki Don't you have today off? Utena We went to see Himemiya's brother. Miki I see... the Trustee Chairman, hmm? Utena How about you, Micky? What are you up to? Miki Well, I had to do some research in the archives here... Utena Wow, you even like studying on holidays! Utena I never even knew this place existed. Miki You don't know about Nemuro Memorial Hall? Miki It's a building with quite a history behind it. Utena A history? Miki It's said that a hundred boys were buried alive here a long time ago. Mikage Say, Mamiya... it seems that you're eligible to be the Rose Bride. Mamiya Don't you mean "Groom?" I am a boy. Mikage "Bride" suits you better. Mikage I will definitely make you a real bride. Mikage And then I'll obtain the Power of Dios and make the secret of eternity ours. Mamiya If you say so, Sempai. Mikage It's all right. We've been acknowledged by the Ends of the World. Mikage But to do all that, Mikage we must defeat Tenjou Utena and obtain Himemiya Anthy, Mikage and then we must kill her. Mamiya Then we'll need a skillful Duelist. Kanae Excuse me. I have an interview appointment today... placard If you are to be interviewed, please fill in this form and wait - Nemuro Memorial Hall paper Nemuro Memorial Hall Interview Application Form Please answer the following questions. paper Name --- Ohtori Kanae Age --- 18 Sex --- Female Address ---
finger INTERVIEW CHAMBER doorknobsi OCCUPIED Kanae I am Ohtori Kanae, from Grade 12, Class A. Mikage Then, please begin. Kanae As soon as I graduate next spring, I will be getting married. Kanae He is someone that my father, the Trustee Chairman, recommended. Kanae He... He's very gentle, and can be a little childish, but... Kanae In fact, he's so much more mature than I am, and he watches over me ever so kindly. Kanae I would do anything for him. Kanae I believe this from the bottom of my heart. Kanae But... But... Mikage Deeper... Mikage Go deeper... Kanae But... Kanae But, he has a younger sister, Kanae and no matter how hard I try, I can't bring myself to like her. Kanae There was this incident... Kanae When I gave her my cherished scarf and told her to use it, Kanae she said "Thank you," and began wiping her glasses with it! Kanae I was so surprised, and when I told her it wasn't a lens cloth, Kanae she simply stared at me silently and smiled. Kanae The sight of her eyes made my skin crawl, because she looked totally like an alien! Kanae And my father... Kanae I can't help but feel that my father's illness started when that freak came to our house. Kanae I'm not sure if I can keep smiling around her any longer. Kanae Up until now I've done my best to like her... Kanae But I just can't! Kanae No matter how hard I try... Kanae I CAN'T! Mikage I understand. I suppose you have no choice but to revolutionize the world. Mikage The way before you has been prepared. Kanae Where am I? Mikage This is a holy land, Mikage a sacred place where a hundred Duelists are sleeping. Mikage This room leads to the ends of the world. Mikage Student Identification, D-13. Mikage Take a look. Mikage This Rose Signet... See, it's black. Mikage When its bearer dies, it changes color like this. Mikage But I think black is more beautiful. Mamiya You can't run away now. Mamiya Because you have been chosen... by my Black Rose. Mamiya This is your new heart... and your new life. Mamiya Here's one of the roses blooming at the ends of the world... Mamiya ...for you! Mikage A Black Rose Signet... Wakaba Isn't there anything fun to do? Utena Hey, we had a party last Saturday. Wakaba Not like that... something more exciting! Wakaba Our academy's just too darned peaceful. Wakaba I wish something surprising would happen. ka-do To the one Engaged: I shall wait for you at the Duel Arena this evening. Cko Extra! Extra! Extra! Cko At last, at last, at last! Cko At last, that which I feared has come to pass! Cko Earlier than for other people. Cko My big sis is advanced for her age. Cko Okay, say "Ahh." Cko Ahhhhhhh!! Cko What should we do about this wisdom tooth? Cko Ahhhhhhh!! Cko Oh, what should I do? Utena Have it pulled?

Anthy That is not her normal self. Kanae This is my true self, Kanae the other me which slumbered within... Kanae As long as I have this black rose, I don't have to play the false me anymore. Utena Because of that black rose? Kanae Now then, Tenjou Utena, draw your sword! Kanae Otherwise, the Rose Bride will be mine! WIPC They can be divine spirits, they can be evil spirits WIPC Ah, even if Heaven's vapors were brought here... WIPC Secret thoughts can also be virtue! They can also be vice! Utena ...the power to revolutionize the world! WIPC Ah, even if Hell's bewitching atmosphere were carried here... WIPC As long as such suspicious forms do come, WIPC they shall have a dialogue! Kanae How feeble! Put more effort into it! Utena Kanae-san, you just said... Utena you swore by that black rose that you'd win this Duel and... WIPC On a moonlight night already severely cold, Kanae ...and bring death to the Rose Bride! WIPC might a spirit leave its body! Utena Fine. I see how it is. Utena In that case, I won't hold back. WIPC A mystery beyond the ken of humans, Kanae What? WIPC and humanity, dwarfed by their Creator, WIPC is made to tremble in fear at the sight! Mikage So that's the Duelist Tenjou Utena... Mikage Now I see. Mikage She's good enough for the Ends of the World to stake everything upon her. Mikage No makeshift Duelist whose mind is simply frozen would be able to defeat her. Anthy So, Utena-sama... Anthy Utena-sama? Anthy I'm going out now. Utena Oh yeah, today's the day you see your brother. See you later. Anthy Uh, Himemiya? Anthy How's Kanae-san been since then? Anthy Well, she's all better now. Utena That's good. Utena And she really doesn't remember anything? Anthy No, nothing at all before the Duel. Utena I see. Then, I guess she can't explain what happened to her. Utena In any case, I'm sorry I had to hurt someone who's going to be your sister. Anthy Please don't let it trouble you. Anthy It isn't your fault, Utena-sama. Utena Thanks. Sorry about keeping you. Utena Oh, and say hi to your brother for me. Anthy Sure. Utena Hey Chuchu, you're still here. Utena Aren't you going with her? Akio Come here, Anthy. Akio Were you lonely this week? Anthy Yes, Onii-sama.

Anthy Yes, it is nice having a brother. Utena But, the Duelists with the black roses still concern me. Anthy It seems like someone is controlling their hearts.

WIPC       They can be divine spirits, they can be evil spirits
WIPC       Ah, even if Heaven's vapors were brought here...
This song is written in archaic Japanese used before 16th century. Most Japanese people don't understand unless they're familiar with the archaic Japanese. We did understand and were able to translate it, but there was one thing we couldn't figure out:
The lyrics written on the CD booklet says this line contains the word "kaki" which we translated as "vapors", but we're not very sure what it means. Besides, the chorus sings this part as "hooki" instead of "kaki", so we suspect this may be a typo. The character "hoo" which means "cheek" looks somewhat similar to the character "ka". Even so, we're not sure what "hooki" would mean.
