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.

Touga You're driving quite fast. Akio She's purring nicely, don't you think? Care to take the wheel? Touga What? But I still don't... Akio You're too strict... Touga That was a rather indecent proposal, Mr. Chairman. Akio My Ohtori Academy has a regard for students' independence, Mr. President. title Our Eternal Apocalypse Akio Yes? Wakaba Umm, I'm a friend of Tenjou Utena, and... Akio Ah, hold on a second. Akio Please come in. Wakaba Th- th- thanks. Anthy Oh, welcome. Utena Hey, Wakaba! Wakaba Ta-dah! I came over to help you! Utena Thanks! Wakaba Wow, this is so cool! Wakaba Much nicer than your old room in that haunted mansion. Utena But it's a bit too large. Wakaba Well, whatever you say, it's just beautiful. Wakaba It's really like, "Hey, I'm super lucky!" you know! Utena I think so. It is a nice room. Wakaba I'm not talking about the room. Utena Huh? Wakaba How dreamy... Utena What is? Wakaba The chairman! The chairman! Wakaba That smile, is that what they call an angel's smile? Wakaba Living under the same roof with a man like that, Wakaba ...and an exciting, romantic development coming along, I envy you! Utena Look, Wakaba, Akio-san's already got a fiancee. Wakaba He does? Utena Yep. Wakaba I wonder why all the good men in this world are already taken. Utena There, there. Akio What's already taken? Akio Won't you have some tea? Wakaba All right! Akio Since we don't have any other family, I want to be near my sister, of course. Akio But it's cruel to separate her from the friend she finally made, Akio I had to be so unreasonable to ask Utena-san to move in as well. Utena What a considerate brother. Wakaba I- I'm a good friend of Anthy-san too! Akio Please continue to be her friend. Wakaba Sure! Wakaba Here, Himemiya-san, would you like another cup of tea? Anthy Thank you. Utena Come on... Wakaba What, you got a problem? Utena No, not really. Wakaba What? I'm always like this, aren't I? Juri Where had you been until you returned to school, Saionji? Saionji That is of no concern. Saionji At any rate, I'm not going to duel anymore. player Lead lead lead... Nanami How's that? Saionji Because what the letters say cannot be trusted. umpire Strike! Juri Having been tricked by the counterfeit letter seems to have taught you a lesson... Miki The contents of the letter have already been verified. player All right! All right! Miki Certainly, when I passed through the Rose Gate, umpire Strike! Miki the center of the caracole to the Duel Arena, umpire Strike! Miki ...a gondola appeared. umpire Strike! Batter out! Nanami So, what about this gondola? Miki I understand that it will advance us to a new stage. Saionji It doesn't matter to me whether the text of the letter is true or false. Saionji I have no recollection of becoming a subordinate of the Ends of the World. umpire Out! Out! Game's over! Saionji I flatly refuse to fight by someone's order. Nanami Kyouichi! Saionji Don't try to stop me. Nanami Honestly. I'd refuse that, too. Miki Well, even so... Juri Who on earth is this Ends of the World? Akio It's that star. It looked more vivid than usual today. Utena Uh... Which one is it? Akio See, right there. Utena Oh? Akio All right, look at the tip of my hand. Akio That star conspicuously sparkling up there is Venus. Utena Ah... Akio The Morning Star... Akio My name, Akio, was derived from the name of this star. Utena Wow, that sounds kind of romantic. Akio The Morning Star, Akio ...also known as Lucifer. Utena Lucifer? Akio The star that was originally an angel, but chose to become the Devil. Akio If you look up from this earth, it's always by the Sun. Akio And unless the Sun sinks, it can never shine. Akio And what do you suppose it thinks when it does shine? Utena Himemiya... Anthy I just heard that dinner is ready, Utena-sama. Utena R- Really? I'm starving. Utena Well then, Akio-san, if you'll excuse me... Utena Akio-san is a nice person, isn't he? Anthy Yes. Utena But... Anthy But? Utena Whenever he's talking about stars, his eyes look lonely. Utena Like someone who lost something important... Utena Still, somehow he gives me the feeling that I've known him before. Anthy There are times when I feel I've known you before too, Utena-sama. Utena Me? Anthy Yes. Utena It's unusual for you to say something like that. Anthy I'm sorry. Utena No, I'm glad. Utena Hey, if something ever troubles you, come talk to me about it first. Utena No matter what, we'll help each other. Utena That's the kind of friends I want us to be. Anthy I understand. From now on, you and I will help each other to go on living. Anthy Utena-sama... Anthy Actually, I... Utena What? Anthy Nothing. Touga Scrubbing the floor this late in the night? Touga You remain as upright as ever. Touga You'll be the champion of the local tournament this year again. Saionji One of the reasons that I hate you is the way you're conceited now. Touga Oh? Saionji You are right. I will be the champion again this year. Saionji But you think that that's meaningless child's play... and you're laughing in your heart. Touga That's not true. Saionji After all, in this world, battles are only won by the strong. Saionji Even if you're conceited with your cheap tricks, don't forget that you lost to Tenjou Utena as well. Touga As have you. Touga Furthermore, I hear that someone I know said he's quitting the duels now. Touga However, I have not yet given up. Touga There's someone I want you to meet. Touga Someone you want me to meet? Touga You haven't really given up either, have you? Touga Listen, can't you hear it? Saionji Hear what? Touga So long as your soul hasn't given up entirely, Touga ...then you should be able to hear this sound, Touga ...running about the ends of the world. Saionji What nonsense... Saionji What the... What is this?! Touga Then come, journey with us, to the world which you desire!
Saionji So, you're the Trustee Board Chairman who's engaged to Ohtori's daughter. Touga Yes, and Himemiya Anthy's older brother. Touga Do you want the Rose Bride? Saionji What do you mean? Touga Exactly what I said. Touga What do you want? What are you aiming for? What do you want to be? Saionji What's the point in asking things like that? Saionji First of all, I have no trust in the likes of you. Touga Come on, aren't you my one and only friend? Saionji There's no such thing as friendship in this world. Touga Is that so? Saionji That is so. Touga I wonder... Touga I wonder if you really believe that. Saionji What are you getting at? Touga Well then, why are you striving for that castle said to hold eternity? Touga Isn't that because you believe that if you get there, you will find something eternal, Touga ...for example, eternal friendship or something? Touga Do you remember that girl who was in the coffin a long time ago? Saionji Something like that happened, I suppose. Touga There was a girl who was saying she wanted to see eternity, right? Saionji I'm not sure. I barely remember it. Touga The one who saved that girl from the coffin that night was Akio-san here. Saionji What? Touga She was saved because Akio-san showed her something eternal. Saionji Say what?! Who the hell are you? Akio She's purring nicely, don't you think? Saionji What are you talking about? Akio The ends of the world, I will show... to you. Saionji You couldn't be... Utena How should I know when I don't receive any letters from the Ends of the World? Miki So you don't know, then. Utena So, what were you saying about the stairway to the Duel Arena? Miki You know how the stairway spirals around the central pillar? Utena Yeah. Miki There's something like a gondola inside the column. Utena Gondola? Saionji That's right. Saionji That gondola is the set of wings that fly toward the ends of the world. Saionji And it will carry me and the Rose Bride to the castle said to hold eternity. Utena Saionji... Miki You no longer duel, do you? Saionji Unfortunately, I am not the same man I was yesterday. Miki What are you saying is different about you? Saionji Can't you see? Miki No. Utena I have no idea what you're talking about. Saionji I see, so you don't know. Saionji Not that you would understand even if I told you... Miki What do you intend to do? Utena Micky! Utena Are you all right? Saionji The Rose Bride belongs to me. Utena Let go of Himemiya, Saionji! A-ko I wonder, I wonder... Do you know what I wonder? B-ko I hear there's going to be another duel out back in the forest today! A-ko It's been quite a while since this phrase was last used. A-ko Of course, it's better done by two people... B-ko ...than by one! A-ko Half the suffering, A-ko&B-ko ...double the happiness! A-ko Hey, wait! You used my shampoo without permission last night! B-ko And you, you went and finished off the pudding I was eating. B-ko ...though it was from two weeks ago. A-ko Are you serious? B-ko But now, brave warrior, A-ko I wonder if you really know... B-ko ...the difficulty in getting along together. A-ko I wonder, I wonder... A-ko&B-ko Do you know what I wonder? A-ko Ugh...

Utena If you really love Himemiya, try putting yourself in her shoes for once. Saionji Indeed. Long ago I did think about the Rose Bride's feelings. Saionji That's why I got so heated. But now I know. Saionji The Rose Bride has no will of her own. Utena Looks like you just won't get it unless I stomp you down, I guess. Utena Himemiya, the sword! Saionji I'm no longer the me who lost to you. Because I saw! Utena You saw? Saionji Yes! Utena What are you saying you saw? Saionji The world. Utena It's vanished. Touga The Sword of Dios vanished. Utena Hey, if something ever troubles you, come talk to me about it first. Utena No matter what, we'll help each other. Utena That's the kind of friends I want us to be. Utena ...want us to be.

Akio       The Morning Star...
Akio       My name, Akio, was derived from the name of this star.
The Morning Star is called "ake no myoujou" in Japanese, and the character for "ake" is the same one for "aki" in his name "akio".
