Today I chose to spend 2 hours doodling Utena fanart and it was lovely.
Hey, did you hear? Yeah, that patient died yesterday. Poor guy! And he was really cute, too. And in the hospital he kept saying how much he wanted to fence again. He apparently knew how sick he was but he still insisted on leaving the hospital and going back to school. There must have been a girl in the fencing club he loved! That reminds me, he used to say something a lot. He wanted to give the power to grant miracles to the one he loved. He wanted to free her from something. Free her- What’s that mean? Who knows…?
This scene…. this scene is always sad to watch. I felt so bad for both juri and ruka.. Its even sadder that juri never realized that he loved her or what his true intent behind everything was.
QUICK WHAT THIS BIRD MEAN
The bird symbolises how Shiori has power over Juri, notice how it flies above Juri’s head, indicating Shiori’s position over Juri and her influence over her, which is also reflected in the way Shiori is always standing above Juri before this point
Once Shiori notices that Juri doesn’t seem particularly upset about their past when they talk on the balcony, the bird flies into the building and falls to the floor.
Once Juri says that she never even liked the boy Shiori thought she stole from her, Shiori realizes that she has no power over Juri at all, and the bird dies.
Furthermore, in Juri’s memories of their past, the color is black & white and the only color is the orange rose. The bird is similarly colored black and white, with an orange beak.
SHIT SON THIS BIRD WAS ONLY IN THIS EPISODE FOR LIKE 5 SECONDS AND YOU CAN WRITE HALF A PAGE ON IT
Juri’s student council uniform in the movie is my all time fave
couple with her longer hair she looks really beautiful!
Rewatching Utena <3 Quick sketch of Juri before bed
I love juri
Jerk or not, I love ruka! juri as well! He’s probly one of the few characters in Utena to truly act out of love, despite it being done with some manipulative intent..
