Watched Utena 19… I think my reaction puts it as eloquently as I’m able: [->]

Man, it does make perfect sense now that I think about it, the seeds were sown IN THE VERY FIRST EPISODE. Jesus Minci this show is awesome.

I don’t know when exactly it started, but by episode 18 I was certain that Nanami is my favorite character in Revolutionary Girl Utena. She’s often the butt of jokes, and is decidedly unsympathetic (spoiled, greedy, obsessive, abusive, delusional, you name it). However, the kind of indignities she suffers in the show makes her endearing to me.
Why?
She doesn’t show any particular strength or grit that makes her admirable perhaps. She is leveled these at times massive indignities as deserved comeuppances in the story. I suspect that somehow, I feel moe for her. Not like Tsuwabuki, and most certainly not like her brother Toga, but maybe the show just has me where it wants me.
And yes, I rather like that epic yellow forehead.
