5.0 out of 5 stars A story of love, dueling and revolution
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 June 2020
I can't even begin to describe how beautiful these books are. I got in to Utena last year and have been dying to read the manga but the original manga volumes are hard to find. Then I came across this! It's honestly worth every penny. All the volumes come in two hardback books, along with a poster and all in a gorgeous presentation box. And it looks so amazing on my bookshelf, it's put my other manga to shame!

As for the story, do not let the fact that this series is originally from 1996 put you off. This is still one of the greatest manga stories to exist and it holds up even today. The story is about a girl called Utena Tenjou, who was given a rose-engraved ring by a traveling prince after the death of her parents. The prince promises Utena that they'll meet again eventually and inspired by his noble demeanor, Utena decided to one day become a prince herself. A few years later, Utena's search for her prince brings her to Ohtori Academy, where she enrolls as a student. She finds herself drawn into a dueling tournament with the school's student council, whose members also wear signet rings identical to Utena's. By winning the duels, the victor becomes engaged to Anthy Himemiya, a mysterious girl also on the student council who is known as the "Rose Bride" who possesses the power to revolutionize the world. After winning her first duel, Utena is now engaged to Anthy and seeks to protect her from other duelists.

Fans of shoujo manga and yuri manga will love Utena and I really recommend this boxset for any lovers of manga!

Absolutely gorgeous set of books! I waited a while before buying this set because of the price, but I received way more than I expected for the money! Two beautiful volumes of manga packed with full colour illustrations at the beginning. A must have!
