  • Review: Revolutionary Girl Utena-Black Rose Saga-Nozomi Release

    Again, this is a review of the Nozomi release; not the series itself.

    This set contains episodes 13-24, which include the last episode of The Student Council Saga and all of The Black Rose Saga (I don’t get it, either). This set comes in a nice art box, which contains three discs in slimcases, as well as a booklet.
