Shoujo Kakumei Utena, better known as Revolutionary Girl Utena, is a
39-episode anime from 1997. In the show, Utena (Tomoko Kawakami) was
given a ring by a certain prince. She vowed to become a prince herself
one day, and eventually she starts to dress in more masculine clothes.
Utena has to fight a series of battles to keep ownership of the Rose
Bride. Strangely enough, the Rose Bride is a human being named Anthy
Himemiya (Yuriko Fuchizaki).
