vid: Utena & ‘Princes of the Universe’ (& total eclipse of the Utena?)

“Revolutionary Girl Utena” + “Princes of the Universe” = Best Thing Ever?? YES.

Also: Listen. All i ask for is an Utena fanvid set to “Total Eclipse of the Heart”. It’s all Making Light’s fault. But you watch that video and then tell me that Avram’s wrong. Woman in a private school where things are going strange and nonsensical around her? Pretty boys doing inexplicable things? Sword fighting? Banquet scene?

Oh, yes. It must happen. Someone get on that — i have no vidding skills. And, please, let it be as good as that “Princes of the Universe”/Utena vid.

Z! Zines! B! BBC!
