nobody can deny this: utena is the only anime with nanami in it, ever

utena 

always i am thinking about how nanami and wakaba basically never interact. i don't think nanami is aware of wakaba. they go on a blind date 10 years down the line and nanami is like "oh wow you went to ohtori too that's crazy"

utena 

@HoneyMoon nanami is nega-wakaba and wakaba is alt-nanami

re: utena 

@req nanami is utena for girls whose anthy was wakaba

re: utena 

@HoneyMoon I hate the implications of this but I'm intrigued

re: utena 

@req i mean basically i think wakaba/nanami is an inversion of the utena/anthy dynamic where the utena-like character is the passive element and the anthy-like character is the active element

re: utena 

@HoneyMoon gonna say it, utena always felt to me as a pretty passive character in itself

re: utena 

@req oh, extremely good point, I think there's a lot to say about how anthy appears to be extremely passive but is actually an active participant "behind the scenes" so to speak, and vice versa for utena. esp. in the black rose arc utena is basically just hanging out and doing duels whenever they pop up

re: utena 

@HoneyMoon she's very much at the mercy of the events and surrounded by a very active active cast, until the very end when she realizes this and tries to invert the trend, failing
