The Legendary Shojo Anime Series Comes to Blu-ray!
 
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? However, Utena won’t have time to dwell upon such matters. 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.

The second of 3 sagas in the series, The Black Rose Saga contains episodes 13-24 of Revolutionary Girl Utena.

Special Features: Animated art gallery, 1997 Utena promo, and  interviews with Utena Director Ikuhara
