Anime and media in general have come a long, long way since the 1990s. From the days of Pokémon being a bad influence on children because of violence and evolution to the arrival of the new generation of shows like Steven Universe on Cartoon Network. There was always one constant behind the scenes, things were being censored. When Japan released Revolutionary Girl Utena (Shoujo Kakumei Utena) and when it was brought to the States, it couldn't be turned into a show for kids, like Sailor Moon before it. Follow me on this journey through only a little of what Utena offered, and how it's themes influenced media as we know it. This also serves as a bit of a review for the series with some minor spoilers.
Shoujo Kakumei Utena is owned by J.C. Staff, Kunihiku Ikuhara, and everyone whose minds came together for this amazing show.
