About Revolutionary Girl Utena Set 2 Limited Edition DVD
Revolutionary Girl Utena Set 2 Limited Edition: Black Rose Saga contains episodes 13-24 of the anime directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara, plus a collectors' art box and a book featuring content from the recent, limited-edition Japanese DVD box set, including episode commentary, artwork and and the second installment of production notes from the Japanese laser disc release.
Utena and Anthy have become close during their time as roommates, so when Anthy casually mentions she has a brother, Utena can't help but feel shocked. She thought she knew Anthy, but the longer she and Anthy are friends, the more she discovers she doesn't know. What other secrets could Anthy be keeping?
Utena won't have time to dwell upon such matters, however, as a new group of duelists has emerged from the shadows. These new challengers wear black rose signets and also seek revolution, but their methods are different than those of Ohtori's Student Council. They don't wish to possess Rose Bride - they want to kill her.

Ratings & Reviews
Great 2nd Volume of Utena
by Josh -
The box set, discs and artwork were all in great shape and the included booklet is really interesting and features some great in-progress art. The series itself is excellent (though this arc features a few more filler episodes than normal), with great animation, music and voice work. The episodes about Juri and Miki are great, as is the final reveal about Mikage.
So this was one of my first anime titles. It holds a special place in my heart because it wasn't like the other anime titles in the 90s. It has a little bit of everything: drama, romance, mystery, tragedy, surreal comedy, and gratuitous amounts of mind games. Trust me. I know. I read the manga first and then I saw the anime. I stopped watching towards the end of this saga but I guarantee you this is a great series. It's considered underrated and some people consider it a sleeper hit. Either way, it's definitely in a league of its own. That's part of the reason why twenty years later, people are still going crazy for Utena.

Love this anime, the art box and booklet were a really nice touch and a must have for Utena fans or collectors. The new audio and video quality is gorgeous. Bonus features are always a plus as well! I compared prices, shipping speed, etc with other places and right stuf was without a doubt the best place to pick up the collection

I got this on sale to replace my old dvd copies. This is a lovely limited edition set, with an elegant design and a great booklet full of artwork, essays, and interviews. It's slimmer than the old 4-dvd set, so less room taken up on the shelf! However, I was unaware that the Nozomi release was separated differently than the old Software Sculptors original release. My oldschool dvd set had season 2 as eps 13-26, but the Nozomi release has it as 13-24. Those two episodes are then included in the Nozomi season 3 release, but for replacing my old dvds, it leaves me with a 2 episode gap. Guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and get lovely new editions of the whole thing~
