Still too much "WTF"

Subject: Noir
So I just finished "Revolutionary Girl: Utena" disc 8. I know I said the last two discs were starting to overcome the previous batch, but this disc started taking a turn for the worse for me again.

I feel like I'm being bludgeoned by my own inability to "get it". And it's doing it on purpose.

Maybe I'm just a bit too sober or something. Or in a bad mood because it's been a busier-than-usual week at work. Or that it was way to Nanami-focused for the majority of it (Nanami, of course, annoys the hell out of me).

Urgh. Oh well, there's not much more left, I think. Disc 9 will be arriving next weekend; maybe it will finally start meaning something more than just throwing a bunch of symbols at me.

But I won't hold my breath...

Sounds like you had an easier time with Evangelion. Hehe.

Utena's one of those shows I need to get around to finally seeing.

Well, at least Eva had a little more than the raw symbolism to carry you from episode-to-episode.

I remember reading that Central Park Media was going to be slashing the retail prices on their discs, though for Utena, there was only speculation if that was included. That said, if you can rent it (Netflix or GreenCine or wherever), better do that first.
