20 years of this shit people
      Welcome to Empty Movement, where you'll find 18 years of Revolutionary Girl Utena content, thanks to 20 years of it being out there for us! The 20th anniversary has been marked with a huge surge in interest, in Japan and abroad. In fact, Japan has utterly lost its damn mind with perfumes, purses, exhibitions, musicals, new mangas, liquors, and god we can't even keep up, people. Actually...we can. If it ain't already here, it's on the way. You know us, friends.
      Dont believe me? Welcome to the exclusive home of the fully translated brand new 20th anniversary Chiho Saito manga! Read it here, because of course you can read it here. For a quick rundown of the ongoing new content, look here. For a detailed list of new art, and everything else, check the changelog.
jsyk this is Gio and Yasha layout as much as a Saionji and Touga one I CANNOT AFFORD FOR THEM TO KEEP MAKING UTENA STUFF

(Wouldn't want you to miss anything! For a breakdown of the new artwork and content from the last update, check here! The Audiology revamp remains completely awesome.)

July 28th, 2018
- This is massive gallery update! The deluge of new artwork continues, and I now have a graphics tablet and it has ROCKED MY WORLD, as has the beautiful Nozomi Ultra Edition Blu-ray release, thanks to which I now have clean copies of several pieces of beautiful artwork I previously didn't have. Also in this update is the aftermath of the subproject I have picked at over the last year or two alongside the previously completely Audiology revamp: I've cleaned all the cels from the opening sequence published in the beautiful Hardcore of Utena book, that, now that I'm back from THE UTENA EXHIBITION WE WENT TO IN OSAKA, I have seen firsthand. It was glorious. Also I have recapped the entire opening sequence, as well as the first closing sequence, Truth, with text-free copies straight from the Blu-ray.

Check out all the gorgeous new artwork below, and remember: August 1st, the new Utena musical, Bud of the White Rose is releasing on DVD and Blu-ray AND WE ARE GOING TO BE READY. That's right, a complete translation of the musical should be available around when it releases. This would be a good time to mention the Empty Movement twitch channel. You might like to subscribe to it. ;)

Also, check out Imagine Me & Utena, a podcast that Yasha and I have started to appear quite frequently on, while also being totally drunk. All their podcasts are great fun though, just not as drunk and full of bad takes and filthy jokes.

I feel like I'm missing stuff, but I invite you to follow us on Twitter or tumblr linked up above! We post quite regularly all kinds of sweet stuff, including soon enough our contributions to the upcoming Utena future zine hosted by the awesome oscar!

Oh, finally! So Adagio Teas lets you make custom fandom blends and the Discord got me going on night, so here is the official Empty Movement Utena-themed tea selection, Terribly Tasteful! We do not make any profit from these, the cut is redirected to various charities based on the character. Some of the choices might give you a smile. ;) If you're a new customer, throw me a shout on twitter or something and I'll send you a coupon.
