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. 😉
