Giovanna - Akio, But Not Akio...
After a very disturbing conversation
about Akio, I went and dreamed it. Anyway, so I see Akio, Anthy, and
Utena rise up on an elevator-like platform. (No, not the Black Rose
one) Anthy and Utena seem like they're passed out, but somehow I assumed
they'd been defeated in battle or something. (Akio seemed quite proud
of himself, though he carried a few scars himself...his duelist uniform
looked rather tattered...) and he was laughing. So then he gives this
long-winded speech which I couldn't hear, but could. You know, like
when you know when they're saying stuff, and can hear them, but don't
know what they're saying. Anyway, so then he walks off the platform,
seeing particularly careful to step on Anthy's foot. (To which I noticed
no reaction, she musta really been out of it.) Anyway, so he walks
off the platform and then he sits in this empty room with a chair
and a TV and watches TV. Then I woke up. It was rather strange, because
I wasn't really recognizing Akio...I knew it was him, but it wasn't.
