SCRIPT (episode 8; version
Heroically, with bravery
OP: I'll go on with my life,
OP: just a long, long time.
OP: But if the two of us should get split
OP: by whatever means,
OP: let go of me,
OP: Take my revolution.
Title: Utena ~ La Fillette Revolutionnaire
OP: In the sunny garden, we held each other's
OP: drew close together and soothed each other
with the words,
OP: "Neither of us will ever fall in love
OP: Into this photograph of us
OP: smiling cheek to cheek,
OP: I took a bit of loneliness,
OP: and crammed it inside.
OP: Even in my dreams, even through my tears,
OP: even though I'm being hurt,
OP: reality is approaching now, frantically.
OP: What I want now is to find out
OP: just where I belong,
OP: and my self-worth, up through today.
OP: Heroically, I'll throw away
OP: my clothes 'til I'm nude,
OP: like the roses dancing all around me,
OP: But if the two of us should get split
OP: by whatever means,
OP: I swear to you, I will change the world.
voice: Once upon a time...
voice: ...there was a princess grieving over
the deaths of her mother and father.
voice: Before this princess there appeared a
prince traveling upon a white horse.
voice: His appearance gallant, and his smile
gentle, the prince enveloped the princess
voice: in the scent of roses, and wiped away
voice: "Little one bearing up alone under grief,
voice: please lose not thy strength and nobility
when thou growest up."
voice: "As a token of this day, please retain
voice: "Pray, shall we meet once more?"
voice: "This ring should guide thee to me."
voice: Was the ring from the prince meant as
an engagement ring?
voice: That part was good,
voice: but because of the strength of her admiration
for the prince,
voice: the princess made up her mind to become
a prince herself!
voice: But is that really good for her?
Title: The Great Curry High-Trip
Keiko: 8th Grade, Class A, has started cooking
practice, as scheduled.
Nanami: So it appears.
Nanami: And what we were discussing earlier...?
Keiko: Yes, ma'am, I just made the substitution.
Keiko: 100X curry, an Indian specialty hot enough
to make you breathe fire.
Nanami: Watch out, Tenjou Utena and Himemiya
Nanami: I'll soon have you begging for mercy.
Nanami: This will be your punishment for trying
to tempt my brother!
Nanami: Be quiet, it's getting good now.
Keiko: I'm sorry, but, um..
Aiko: The substitution wasn't for 100X curry...
Keiko: It appears to be for super spicy 900
Billion X curry,
Keiko: so hot it will blast you to smithereens
and make phantom elephants trumpet loudly.
Nanami: Phantom... smithereens?
Nanami: No way...
Touga: If the egg's shell does not break, the
chick will die without being born.
Touga: We are the chick; the egg is the world.
Touga: If the world's shell does not break,
we will die without being born.
Touga: Break the world's shell.
Touga&Juri: For the sake of revolutionizing
Touga: Councilors, this is the greatest disaster
for the Rose Signet Code.
Touga: The Rose Bride and the one she is engaged
to have fallen.
Touga: This was an unforseen turn of events,
even for the Ends of the World.
Touga: I have a report that at this rate their
lives are in danger.
Miki: It's my fault.
Miki: I kept telling Himemiya-san how I wanted
to eat extremely hot curry.
Miki: Risking her life for me, Himemiya-san
Touga: Well, that doesn't mean it's your fault,
Juri: But, what do we do now?
Juri: The truth is that just one batch of curry
ruined our plot.
Miki: It's all my fault.
Touga: It's me. What?
Touga: They were released? Both of them?
Wakaba: Utena, Utena! Utena-sama!
Wakaba: Boy, you had me worried!
Wakaba: Are you all right?
Wakaba: I heard there was a huge explosion,
and I was worried to death, and... Huh?
Wakaba: I'm sorry!
Wakaba: I wasn't thinking, hugging you like
Wakaba: I should call an ambulance, yeah, ah,
Anthy: There's no need to call an ambulance.
Anthy: I'm fine. Sorry to have worried you.
Wakaba: There's something strange about you,
Keiko: You're in an awfully good mood lately.
Aiko: But don't get all proud with that tomboy
around you all the time.
Yuuko: Some nights it gets really dark, you
Keiko: Hey, don't just stand there, say something.
Miki: What are you doing?
Nanami: Oh, Micky! Don't sneak up on me like
Keiko: You... you slapped me!
Keiko: Not even my own mother has ever slapped
Utena: If you keep up these petty false accusations,
Utena: I'll really become your enemy.
Miki: It... it can't be...
Miki: The pure, innocent Himemiya-san has...
Nanami: Switched personalities?
Keiko: These are the hidden photos of them over
the past days.
Aiko: Himemiya Anthy, Tenjou Utena... their
behaviour patterns are completely switched.
Nanami: It's true, but how?
Keiko: Everything dates back to that curry explosion.
Nanami: Utena is Anthy, and Anthy is Utena?
Nanami: All because of that 900 Billion X spice...
Nanami: That's crazy...
girl: Five, please.
Aiko: That'll be 2000 yen.
girl: Gallant Anthy is cooler than I expected.
girl: Calm Utena is attractive, too.
Nanami: You're selling them...?
Aiko: Their charm is unexpected, isn't it?
Keiko: They're popular with both boys and girls.
Miki: My goodness!
Miki: This, this can't be Himemiya-san!
Miki: But, now that I've bought them, I can't
Yuuko: Okay, you wanted 20, right?
Keiko&Aiko: Thank you.
Nanami: Really, I don't see what's so great
Touga: I see, so that's how it is.
Touga: I thought it seemed suspicious,
Touga: but I didn't think that you actually
were involved in all this.
Nanami: N- no, I, um, ah, well, that is...
Aiko: Here are the negatives.
Keiko: Thank you.
Nanami: Et tu, Onii-sama?
Utena: I see, so that's how it was.
Utena: So you all were behind this.
Touga: I'm afraid there's been a misunderstanding.
Nanami: That's right, a misunderstanding.
Nanami: My brother would never make passes at
Nanami: This was all MY doing.
Touga: You've gotten me into a very troubling
Nanami: Please forgive me, Onii-sama.
Nanami: When they were going to make delicious
curry during Anthy-san's cooking practice,
Nanami: Nanami got this phantom Indian spice
especially for them.
Nanami: But I can't believe it caused all of
Utena: You're the one I can't believe.
Nanami: If we could just get the phantom spice
Nanami: I'm sure Utena-san and Anthy-san would
be able to return to their old selves.
Nanami: So, please, Onii-sama!
Touga: Okay. You may not return until you once
more have the phantom spice.
Nanami: I understand. Thank you, Onii-sama.
Keiko: She said it but, I wonder where is the
Yuuko: Well, it came from India, didn't it?
Nanami: Wait for me, Onii-sama! I shall return!
Keiko&Aiko: You mean we're supposed to go with
Ako: A lesson on the idioms of love and youth.
Ako: Today's phrase is "You reap what you sow."
Bko: "You reap what you sow."
Ako: It means that if you do bad things, then
misfortune will befall you.
Bko: Give me your money!
Bko: What the hell?
Ako: If you're going to do bad things, you must
be prepared for that.
Anthy: Utena-sama, that's wonderful.
Utena: Well, it feels weird being praised by
my own body.
Anthy: You see, I'm not very good at sports,
Anthy: so seeing my own body acting so wonderfully
makes me happy.
Utena: But, we gotta think of a way to return
Anthy: Don't worry.
Anthy: I'm sure even now Nanami-san is...
Utena: Anyway, it'll be bad if we don't find
a way to return to our old bodies soon.
Utena: I don't want to be the victim of the
Anthy: I don't mind being like this, because
I don't judge by outside appearances.
Utena: Well, I do mind. Saionji has been coming
on to me.
Saionji: I've been waiting, Himemiya Anthy.
Utena: See, here he comes.
Saionji: It's that time again. Follow me.
Anthy: Could I go with you?
Saionji: You can stay here. Come on, Anthy.
Nanami: You really helped me. When that elephant
was chasing me I thought it was all over.
Nanami: By the way, have you heard of the Phantom
900 Billion X spice?
Saionji: I have longed for this day.
Utena: Oh, Himemiya, what are you usually doing
with Saionji in a place like this?
Saionji: Anthy, I'll get right to the point:
I need you to keep your promise.
Utena: Uh, what was that again?
Saionji: As always, you're good at teasing me.
Saionji: Well, if that's how you're going to
be then I'll say it.
Saionji: Today is one of the two days that we
prove our love each week.
Utena: Prove our love?!
Saionji: The same as always.
Utena: W, wait a minute.
Saionji: Even if we defy fate itself, our bond
Saionji: Even though we must keep it a secret
Saionji: Don't turn your eyes away. Look at
me, the real me.
Utena: No! No!
Saionji: Here you will see nothing but the truth...
in our exchange diary.
Utena: Huh? Diary?
Nanami: Phantom spice...
Nanami: Phantom spice...
Nanami: An elephant?
Saionji: Now I am content with just this diary
for the moment,
Saionji: but someday, when I master the sword,
I'll show everyone I can get you back.
Saionji: Wait for that day, Anthy.
Utena: That Saionji. He's serious.
Utena: I'm sure that since she knew his feelings,
Utena: she just continued the diary for him
and kept it a secret even from me.
Utena: But, what can I do?
Utena: The best way would be to ask her to write
a response to him,
Utena: but if I do that Saionji and Himemiya
will know that I know their secret.
Utena: And, of course, I can't write it myself.
Anthy: Ah, Saionji-sempai's exchange diary.
Anthy: Well, Utena-sama, please return it to
Utena: Huh? You mean, are you telling me to
Anthy: Because now Utena-sama is Himemiya Anthy.
Utena: I can't spy on your privacy. That's just
Utena: Yeah, it's wrong.
Anthy: Well, then, I'll quit.
Utena: Wait a minute, what are you doing? That's
a bit extreme.
Utena: You can't just throw it away!
Anthy: I was only continuing the diary because
you never said to stop, Utena-sama.
Anthy: Now that you've said it was wrong, Utena-sama,
Anthy: I can't continue with Saionji- sempai's
Utena: What I want to say is...
Utena: Well, Saionji has gotten to be really
Nanami: Not again!
Utena: Ah, the only thing to do is write it.
Utena: Dear Anthy, even now I'm dreaming of
the time you and I were engaged.
Utena: Hey, look, he's really serious, isn't
Saionji: To my beloved Anthy,
Saionji: I'm sorry for making you wait all the
Saionji: I'm satisfied with the diary for now,
Saionji: but surely I'll overthrow that impudent,
ugly tomboy Tenjou...
Saionji: and surely I'll show them I can get
Saionji: By, Saionji Kyouichi.
Utena: This ain't funny at all.
Nanami: Where's the spice? The phantom spice?
Saionji: Anthy, it's almost here, the day I
return to a rose colored life with you.
Touga: This is unusual, Saionji. You, showing
your face at the rose garden...
Saionji: Listen well, Touga. The Rose Bride
will soon return to me.
Touga: Oh, Anthy?
Saionji: No one can tear apart our love... surely
not even the Rose Signet Code.
Touga: Oh, Anthy?
Saionji: Oh, Anthy, I've been waiting for you.
Utena: Forgive me, but I couldn't stop laying
bare all my thoughts.
Utena: Please, take it.
Saionji: So, you think that much of me. I'll
take only your true intentions. Well...
Miki: Sempai, I just now heard that Nanami-san
Touga: Nanami, you've become strong.
Nanami: I found it! This is the phantom spice!
Touga: Well done, Nanami!
Utena: All right, with this we can return to
our old selves!
Touga: Nanami, the replacement?
Nanami: That was the last one.
Nanami: They said it will take another 200 years
to refine it to 900 Billion X spice.
Utena: 200 years?
Ako: Could this be a case of "Reaping what you
Bko: Could it be?
Nanami: The spice, the rare phantom spice I
took all that trouble to obtain...
Utena: We'll be like this forever?
Anthy: Now, now, everyone please don't get depressed.
Anthy: Please have some of my special curry
and try to cheer up.
Utena: I don't really feel like eating curry
Nanami: What is it? Silence!
Keiko: I'm sorry but, look at this.
Miki: Th- That's...
Nanami: The phantom 900 Billion X spice.
Aiko: It was left in the cooking room.
Keiko: It looks like it was never used in that
Utena: So that means that explosion...
Nanami: wasn't caused by the spice...
Utena&Nana: It was from Anthy's cooking skills?
Miki: That's incredible, Himemiya-san!
Miki: This is a new invention, curry that explodes
and causes a personality switch when eaten.
Anthy: Oh, you're embarrassing me.
Saionji: Anthy, what is this?
Saionji: Since when would you so calmly write
such shameless things?
Saionji: That's it, it's because you've been
living with that vulgar Tenjou Utena.
Saionji: Now I see, Anthy.
Saionji: I'll pretend I never read that, so
please re- write it. Fill a new page with words of love.
Anthy: Well, how is the curry?
Anthy: It's a new invention, you know.
Saionji: Yes, it's just right this time.
Utena: That, that curry is...
Anthy: My new invention.
Wakaba: So, when you came to after the explosion's
shock you were both your old selves again?
Utena: You got it.
Wakaba: Huh, unbelievable.
Utena: I had a really hard time. No more curry
Utena: By the way...
Utena: What's with him?
ED: Missing truth and forever
ED: Kissing love and true your heart
ED: Embrace me with your true arms
ED: The key to open up tomorrow is reality
ED: I want to keep on destroying lies.
ED: Even if we keep on talking,
ED: you still won't ever see.
ED: Excuses really suit adults
ED: who hang on to old stories.
ED: Because unchosen angels
ED: have no need for wings.
ED: Missing truth and forever,
ED: Kissing love and true your heart,
ED: I will like tomorrow's new me.
ED: At least I believe so; I want to believe
ED: so I want to keep lies hating me.
Title: Preview of Next Episode
Utena: Himemiya's been spirited away?
Anthy: Bringing me to the arena when there's
no duel is not allowed.
Anthy: Please stop, Saionji-sempai.
Utena: ...what are you doing with Himemiya?
At least think of her feelings a little.
Anthy: I want to go to that floating castle
in the sky, someday.
Anthy: There's something eternal up there.
Utena: Next time on Shoujo Kakumei Utena: The
Castle Said To Hold Eternity
Anthy: The Absolute Destiny: Apocalypse.
TRANSLATOR'S NOTE ON THE EPISODE
Title: The Great Curry High-Trip
The original Japanese title "Kare- naru Hai Torippu" contains a
pun. "kare-" means "curry" and the same sound "karei" means "splendid"
or "magnificent." To Japanese people, the title sounds like a spoof
of stereotyped Japanese titles to old foreign movies because many
titles begin with "Karei naru..."
