*This post has Utena spoilers so stay away if you are one of the people I’m making watch Utena with me

So true story. I learned last night that I am now at that point with Utena that whenever the animation pans on Utena clasping Anthy’s hand, I want to cry.

Like all I can think is: please don’t loose your grip on her.

And then I have to comfort myself by reminding myself that in my headcanon Utena is alive and Anthy will find her for their ten year anniversary tea party.

This is extra sad because this happens every episode during the OP animation, and the fact the words “Let go of me/Take my revolution” are sung then DOES NOT HELP. Can you be a bit more about the final episode, OP?
