The remastered Revolutionary Girl Utena is being uploaded on Youtube for legal free streaming.  Talk about a nostalgia bomb.  This was the first big exposure I had to a deeply textured, nuanced, complicated, confusing, challenging feminist story and it pretty much ate my brain.  As dated as aspects of it are, it’s still pretty damn ahead of its time and well worth watching.  (Yes, you do need to watch the whole series to get why I’m not delusional about this.  It starts slow.)
