    Revolutionary Girl Utena has been both critically acclaimed and a fan favorite since its 1997 broadcast debut on TV Tokyo and features direction by Kunihiko Ikuhara (Sailor Moon S and SuperS), series composition by Yoji Enokido (Ouran High School Host Club, FLCL, Sailor Moon SuperS) and animation by J.C. Staff (Honey and Clover, Slayers, Toradora!). Utena has been described as one of the top five “best anime of all time” (Anime Insider magazine, among others), and the project also inspired animated film, manga and stageplay adaptations. The two shoujo (girls’) manga, written and illustrated by Chiho Saito, were published in North America by VIZ Media.

    About REVOLUTIONARY GIRL UTENA: The Apocalypse Saga


    As the final duel rapidly approaches, the Student Council’s will to continue is beginning to waver. After all, End of the World’s identity and motives remain a mystery. And Utena, fueled by her desire to protect Anthy, continues to prevail over the feeble ambitions that drive the Student Council to fight.
    But the Council’s ambitions are reignited when they hear a sound. At first, it’s faint, but soon it becomes clear: The promised revolution is within reach – and the duels must go on.
    And what of Utena’s own ambition? To become a prince, the duels may be only one of the trials she has yet to face.
    Contains television episodes 25-39, plus the theatrical film Adolescence of Utena.

          I just pre-ordered my copy.

          Just a word of warning: this set is going to be more expensive than the other two. However, given the content on this set (and the ring pre-order incentive), it's going to be worth it.

            I'm a bit surprised that they are including the movie (I thought that they were releasing that separately?), but this is a very nice sounding set. I'll definitely be getting this.

              I will be placing my order soon. A very solid release. I wasn't expecting the movie to be included in this. A very pleasant surprise.

                    Pre-ordered a minute or two after it went up. I was wondering about the price to I saw it will include the movie. Wish I'd had known was saving some stuff for shipping filler since I figured it'd be the same price as the other sets. Oh well can always use them for shipping filler on a future order. Curious to see if the ring will appear in the account orders page like other bonus items have?

                      Having budgeted my pre-orders in advance, I did not anticipate this including the movie and inflating the price accordingly. Hopefully there's a Nozomi studio sale from between now and the release date.

                        I have a feeling including the movie is also pushing the release date further than we expected. I would have preferred TRSI release the movie separately since I only want the TV series, but oh well.

                        Based on past history, there should be a Nozomi sale sometime in the fall season.

                            Oh crap that's expensive. An extra 30 dollars on RRP and nearly double the price of the first set after discounts. I think I may have to pass. I'm not sure I want/need the ring, or that it'll be particularly collectible, it was just nice. Will definitely pick it up once it's been out long enough to be discounted further.

                            My copies of sets 1 and 2 arrived today so maybe they'll change my mind. I sold most of my original versions, but kept the movie - there's nothing wrong with it - much better than CPM's tv releases

                              It is kind of a lot for a single item... but fundamentally no different than it would have been had they released the third arc of TV episodes in a set for $49.99 and then the movie on its own for $29.99. Well, okay, you'd have saved a cent, but anyway.

                              I understand that it makes it tough for folks who just wanted the TV series, or just wanted the movie, or typically like to spread their dollars out a bit when purchasing. But for me personally, it sure is convenient.
