About REVOLUTIONARY GIRL UTENA: The Black Rose Saga
Utena and Anthy have become close during their time as roommates. So when Anthy casually mentions she has a brother, Utena can’t help but feel shocked. She thought she knew Anthy, but the longer she and Anthy are friends, the more she discovers she doesn’t know. What other secrets could Anthy be keeping?
However, Utena won’t have time to dwell upon such matters. A new group of duelists has emerged from the shadows. These new challengers wear black rose signets and also seek revolution, but their methods are different than those of Ohtori’s Student Council. They don’t wish to possess Rose Bride. They want to kill her.
Contains episodes 13-24.
Nozomi Entertainment’s release of the Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Student Council Saga DVD Set L.E. (Remastered Box Set 1) is scheduled for June 7, 2011.
Fans who pre-order all of the Revolutionary Girl Utena remastered DVD sets via RightStuf.com will receive an exclusive gift – to be announced – which will be shipped along with the third and final box set.
