> Revolutionary Girl Utena Reference Resource

     This section is under construction. I know, you're disappointed. I am too! Eventually this will be yet another resource for things to analyze. There are many blatant references in the Utena universe, things that aren't questionable or open to discussion, but some people will catch while others don't have the background. Those things will be posted here! For example, a shot of Mikage on a bed in the Black Rose Saga is a clear reference to a Manet painting which was itself a reference to a Titian painting. See the comparisons here. These are the sort of references I plan to compile here. So...coming soon! And if you know of any such ones, by all means please let me know!

Polly want some C4? Sorry, coding and Colbert do not mix.
It is March. It is snowing. It is Canada.
