Please...don't open this coffin.
Saionji: Who would have thought that that
girl was Tenjou Utena...
Saionji: That girl who was inside the coffin.
Touga: She's still all alone within the coffin.
Touga: In order to save her, I'll beat her.
Saionji: It may be that the Chairman saved
her back then.
Saionji: But she's still in the coffin. No,
not just her.
Saionji: We're in our coffins too.

Akio: So, what do you think?
Akio: Once you get used to it, it feels pretty
good, doesn't it?
Utena: Yes...my heart was pounding. A lot.
Akio: I see. I'm glad.
Utena: It's been a really long time since
I've spent time out in nature like this.
Utena: I feel like I'm dreaming or something.
Utena: It was really fun.
Akio: You're beautiful. The very image of
a princess amidst the forest.
Utena: When you say that sort of thing...it
sounds like you really mean it.
Akio: It's true.
Touga: Welcome back.
Juri: I wonder why.
Juri: For some reaon, she looks like a girl
to me now.
Miki: Well of course Tenjou-senpai's a girl.
Juri: I know that. But...
Miki: Actually, she looks that way to me too.
Miki: But, isn't that something wonderful?
Juri: Do you really think so?
Juri: Something's about to change. No - not
Juri: Everything. Everything in this
school is about to change.
Miki: Everything in the school...then, it's
Juri: ...a Revolution?
Juri: That's right. The day of Revolution
is fast approaching.
Juri: But what is this frenzied, horrible
Touga: Whaddya think? Pleasant vibrations
Saionji: They're not moving me.
Saionji: You've got messed-up tastes. That's
Touga: I take it you don't like it because
Saionji: What I don't like is being dominated.
Saionji: Letting someone that deep into my
Touga: You've always been a guy who couldn't
hide his hostility.
Saionji: Hell if I care.
Saionji: So what're you gonna do? You planning
to fight Tenjou Utena like this?
Saionji: Just like the Ends of the World is
telling you to?
Akio: She was beautiful.
Touga: Her, you mean?
Akio: Yeah. Pure, and magnificent.
Akio: A peerless princess.
Akio: My precious one.
Touga: I know that.
Saionji: We must rise from our coffins!
Saionji: From within the coffins that the
Ends of the World has prepared for us!
Touga: I'll give you an answer. Tonight.
Touga: Standing up is dangerous.
Utena: Oh brother, you'll catch cold.
Utena: I wonder if Himemiya's with Akio-san
Utena: Hey, Chu-Chu, are you always alone
like this while Himemiya's with her brother?
Utena: Mr. President.
Touga: I have something important to talk
to you. Will you accompany me?
Utena: You're joking, right? Why're you bugging
me at this hour?
Touga: What if I said I wanted to talk about
the Ends of the World?
Utena: This is my first time being in the
Arena of Duels at night.
Touga: Are you scared?
Utena: It's not that. It's just that it feels
different from how it usually does.
Touga: How does it feel?
Utena: How does it feel? Well...
Utena: No way.
Touga: I'd be glad if the two of us could
go up alone like this into the heavens.
Utena: Hey, don't get so close to me.
Touga: My apologies.
Utena: Wow...this is kind of exciting.
Utena: Just like when I went to the park at
Utena: To think you and I actually Dueled
Utena: There're so many stars.
Touga: You're beautiful.
Touga: How fortunate I am to have been able
to meet you.
Utena: Here you go again.
Utena: Just forget about that stuff and get
to the point, okay?
Touga: Do you love the Chairman?
Utena: How...how could I?
Utena: He's got a fiancee, you know.
Touga: I see.
Utena: Why'd you ask me that. What about the
Ends of the World?
Touga: The Ends of the World, huh?
Touga: I can't reveal his name now. You'll
find out who he is soon enough.
Touga: But before that, I wanted to talk to
Utena: What about?
Touga: Is there no way I can be your Prince?
Touga: You're my only princess.
Utena: Not that again.
Touga: It's true. I love you.
Touga: From my heart, I treasure you.
Touga: Your nobility and beauty shine on many.
Touga: And even if I'm not worthy of you,
please, be with me for at least this instant.
Touga: Just that will do.
Touga: If I can just carve the memory of this
night, the two of us together, within me,
Touga: that will be enough. Will you permit
me that much?
Utena: I understand.
Touga: Thank you.
Touga: Is there no way I can be your Prince?
Utena: Come to think of it, that's what I
thought when we first met.
Utena: That the President might be my Prince.
Saionji: How'd it go? Did you get this "answer"
Touga: Yeah. Last night made it perfectly
Saionji: Oh? Then care to let me in on it?
Touga: It's now clear that she's someone very
important to me.
Saionji: So now what?
Touga: I will fight once again!
Touga: And I must prevail.
Touga: After all, there's no other way to
Touga: If she wins the next duel,
Saionji: she gets the Power to Revolutionize
Saionji: But if that happens...
Touga: ...she'll fall into the Ends of the
Saionji: So, shall we?
Anthy: Where were you last night?
Utena: Oh, um, I had stuff to do.
Touga: Hi. May we join you?
Utena: What did you say?
Touga: Let me repeat myself. I want to Duel
with you again.
Utena: What're you thinking?
Touga: You intend to protect the Rose Bride,
Utena: That's right. I won't let anybody lay
a finger on her.
Touga: Then I promise you this. If you win,
none of the Student Council will ever target her again.
Touga: But if I win, you become my woman.
Utena: I misjudged you. I can't believe you'd
say such a thing...
Touga: No objections?
shadow: Gallop gallop gallop. Lo, give ear
to the sound if ye be afar!
shadow: And behold if ye be close at hand!
shadow: For I be a Prince upon a white horse!
shadow: My! A Prince of white horses!
shadow: This flowing mane, these splendid
shadow: See here, that's not the Prince of
white horses, that's the white horse of the Prince.
shadow: The Prince is me.
shadow: But, does that mean you're not a human
shadow: I'm human, but I'm called a "Prince
upon a white horse."
shadow: Well anyway, you're a Prince too right?
shadow: Do you really want a horse Prince?
shadow: Of horse!
Touga: This fight will determine the one who
shall Revolutionize the World.
Utena: Who cares about that. Anways, your
promise not to touch Anthy if I win is for real, right?
Utena/Anthy: Grant me the power to Revolutionize
Utena: We just met here last night!
Touga: No personal feelings when you're in
Touga: Tenjou...I'll protect you.
Utena: How many times have I fought with you
Touga: This is the third.
Utena: How strange...it feels like we've fought
Utena: Himemiya! Himemiya!!
Utena: Hey, Himemiya...
Utena: Believe in me. I'll protect you no
Utena: Can't you believe in me?
Utena: Let's go. Akio-san is waiting.
Touga: Hold it. You've now become the one
who will Revolutionize the World.
Touga: But you mustn't open your heart to
the Ends of the World, or to the Rose Bride.
Touga: That's the last thing I can say.
Utena: Not that again...farewell, senpai.
Saionji: Is it over for us?
Touga: No. It's not over until we see it through
the very end.
Anthy: I bet you're tired from today.
Anthy: Please get a good night's sleep.
Utena: Yeah. Isn't this great? Now there's
nobody left who'll target you.
Utena: Oh, shoot. I gotta get in bed the right
Utena: Ah, there she is.
