The Ohtori Promise

A juxtaposition of When in Rome’s lyrics and the multiple layers of subtext in the Utena anime.

Made especially for my boyfriend Tonbo to capture the true spirit of this TV show. While this video is nice and somewhat bland (“a bit boring” even), if you know the context of the scenes (i.e. you’ve seen ALL 39 episodes), and listen to the lyrics, I hope you cringe. 😉

Peace & Love, Ohtori

A juxtaposition of Information Society lyrics and the slapping of Utena, and Anshi, and Miki and Anshi, and …

My first Utena video, inspired by discussions that there should be a slap counter for this anime. Well, how about a slap video instead, ne?

I love the sound of movement in Information Society songs, but damn they have some long bridges. Then again, what better place to use a transformation sequence. 🙂
