"The Ends of the World"
Utena: Where are we?
Utena: The Prince...
Akio: Yes. The Prince.
Utena: So, you were the Ends of the World
after all, huh?
Utena: You're the one who was behind everything.
Akio: You knew all along.
Akio: But, I'm your Prince. You came all this
way to meet me.
Utena: I want to know your reason.
Utena: The reason behind making everybody
Utena: What is the meaning of all the things
being done at this school?
Akio: How courageous.
Akio: What sort of dreams have you been dreaming
Akio: I always dream of the castle.
Utena: The castle?
Akio: Yes. The castle where the Prince and
the princess will live...
Akio: ...happily for ever and ever and ever
Akio: The Prince is me. And the princess is
Akio: You needn't be alarmed. Anthy is right
Akio: That ring would have lead you here sooner
Akio: You truly have done well, coming all
this distance without losing your noble heart.
Akio: My judgement was sound.
Akio: You're beautiful.
Akio: Bearing your noble heart all the way
Akio: You are my true princess.
Akio: Swords no longer suit you.
Akio: I shall keep this sword. And from this
day forward, I will protect you.
Utena: And what happens then?
Akio: You'll be happy. You'll receive eternity
and we will love each other forever.
Akio: And the princess will live forever and
ever with the Prince in the castle.
Akio: What's wrong?
Utena: If we live happily in the castle, what'll
happen to Himemiya?
Akio: She'll remain the Rose Bride. Forever.
Utena: Are you running away?
Anthy: Don't worry about me anymore!
Utena: Are you running away?!
Utena: Weren't we gonna have tea and laugh
together for our ten-year reunion?
Anthy: I'm sorry, Utena-sama.
Anthy: I'm so sorry.
Anthy: Because I'm the Rose Bride...because
I'm a doll with no heart...
Anthy: I thought that no matter what befell
my body, my heart wouldn't feel the pain.
Anthy: I'm sorry, Utena-sama. My suffering
is my rightful punishment as the Rose Bride.
Anthy: But...making you suffer...you were
merely caught up in it all...
Anthy: I knew everything.
Anthy: I exploited your innocence. I encroached
upon your kindness.
Anthy: I'm sorry, Utena-sama. I've been unfair
Anthy: I'm a dirty woman. I've betrayed you
all along. I-
Utena: I...didn't recognize your pain.
Utena: I didn't realize your suffering.
Utena: Instead, I just kept on pretending
to be the Prince who could save you.
Utena: I was just being conceited about protecting
Utena: And when I saw you and Akio-san together...I
even thought you had betrayed me.
Utena: When you were suffering so much...when
I had said we should save each other...
Utena: I'M the one who's unfair. I'm the one
Utena: I'm the one who betrayed you.
Anthy: It's okay now, so please...leave this
Anthy: Please forget about all of this.
Utena: How...the hell could I do that?
Utena: That's right. There's no way in hell
I can do that.
Akio: What're you doing?
Akio: A sword isn't meant for a girl to wave
around like that.
Utena: I'll free Himemiya from you!
Akio: Truly courageous.
Akio: Who would have thought it would come
Utena: What're you talking about?
Akio: But, just as I once said, now that time
Akio: ...you should no longer be just a pure
soul who wants to be a Prince.
Akio: Dresses don't go with swords.
Akio: Looking at you reminds me of my former
Akio: But, that's exactly why you can't save
Akio: In the end, all that stuff about the
Prince and the castle holding eternity is merely make-believe.
Akio: Now, allow me to show you what's real.
Akio: The Ends of the World.
Utena: This is...
Utena: your room!
Akio: A magnificent Planetarium, isn't it?
Akio: This device paints the illusion of fairy
tales for those with naive wishes in their hearts...
Akio: ...who say they wish something eternal
existed, who say they wish the power of miracles existed.
Akio: But, there's no place higher than this
Akio: This room is the summit of Ohtori Academy,
and of the world.
Utena: I hate this room.
Akio: Someone as young as you might not appreciate
the value of this room.
Akio: And so instead of the real Chairman's
Room, you chase after phantom Castles in the sky.
Utena: That's not it. This is the room where
you and Anthy always...
Akio: Oh, is that what you're upset
Akio: Am I really doing something that
Akio: And even if I am, you're the same as
Utena: What're you talking about?
Akio: I doubt you've forgotten.
Akio: Behold, the memory of the two of us.
Akio: I have a fiancee, but that didn't stop
Akio: Isn't that a sin?
Utena: That's not fair.
Akio: Unfair? Isn't it unfair to turn
your eyes from the truth and then criticize others?
Akio: Isn't it UNFAIR to pretend that your
conscience is clear and that YOU'RE the one in the right?
Utena: That's not it! I...Himemiya...
Akio: That's right. You didn't even try to
Akio: In the end, you had your hands full
just thinking about yourself.
Akio: How cute. You're a good woman.
Akio: You should stay a girl.
Akio: There was a time when you were helpless
and reality subjugated you,
Akio: no matter how much you struggled.
Akio: With no way to escape the cruel reality
before your eyes,
Akio: you tried to segregate yourself from
Akio: The one who saved you from within that
Akio: I'm the one who gave you the power to
face the world again.
Akio: At that time, I was a Prince to you.
Akio: But, I'm the same, then and now.
Akio: And Anthy was the Rose Bride, then and
Akio: And she's a witch.
Akio: That goes for you too. Both then and
now, you're a girl.
Akio: There's no need for you to fight with
a sword in your hand.
Akio: You can become a noble, beautiful princess.
Akio: Now, won't you give me that sword?
Utena: What do you plan to do with this sword?
Akio: I'll Revolutionize the World.
Utena: Aren't you her brother?!
Utena: Are you just going to abandon her?
Akio: Foolish lifeform.
Akio: There never was any such thing as a
Prince anywhere in the world in the first place.
Utena: Didn't you just say you were a Prince?
Akio: Do you know what that is?
Akio: It's Dios's, the Prince's Grave.
Akio: When she became known as a witch, Dios
Akio: The Princely me no longer exists.
Utena: I guess I have no choice but to fight
Akio: For Anthy?
Akio: I thought that she was a goddess who
sacrificed her body for the one she loved, for me.
Akio: I once thought so too.
Akio: And she really might have been, once.
But now she's a witch.
Akio: And she enjoys being a witch.
Utena: You're the one who's making her a witch!
Akio: Wrong. We love each other. She can't
be happy any other way.
Touga: If it does not break the egg's shell,
Touga: the chick will die without being born.
Miki: We are the chick.
Juri: The egg is the world.
Nanami: If we do not break the shell of the
Nanami: we will die without being born.
Saionji: Break the shell of the world.
all: To Revolutionize the World!
Miki: It's begun, hasn't it.
Nanami: Tenjou Utena.
Saionji: That's right.
Nanami: So, what happens to the Victor of
Touga: Nobody knows. But it will be her final
Touga: The Duel Called Revolution has now
Akio: I'm not a Duelist.
Akio: Fighting me isn't some play duel.
Utena: I was never playing when I dueled!
Akio: No, you know nothing besides play duels.
Akio: But if you don't put up your sword now,
you'll find out how terrifying real duels are.
Utena: I won't let you beat me.
Akio: A child like you can't appreciate my
Akio: The Rose Bride exists because of ideals
you don't comprehend.
Utena: What kind of shitty ideal makes you
use this room to control everybody's lives?!
Akio: A child wouldn't appreciate the value
of this room.
Utena: What is the value of this room?!
Utena: Making Himemiya suffer more?!
Akio: She's the Rose Bride of her own free
Akio: There's no call for you to interfere.
Anthy: I am the Rose Bride...from today forward,
I am your flower.
Anthy: Really, I...
Anthy: I'm sorry, Utena-sama.
Anthy: I'm so sorry.
Utena: I'll be the one to free her from you!
Akio: Do you know what you're saying?
Utena: Sure I do! It means I'll become a Prince!
