So I've been rewatching Utena.

You guys, do you know how many fucking trigger warnings that show needs nowadays?

Oh sure, on the surface it looks like a standard shoujo anime, with you know a little DV in the first episode but that's so we know Saionji's an asshole. Oh and the bullying, too. That's ep 1. Oh, parental death. That should probably be on there.

Then we get into the, like:
-incest
-depression
-statutory rape
-child rape (is that the TV series too or just the movie? I'm pretty sure both)
-your best friend turning on you like a motherfucker
-animal abuse/animal death
-fucking terrifying swords

...and I'm sure I'm missing several things.

Probably a TW is unnecessary for abuse of the English language though, right, Touga?

"Oh sure, on the surface it looks like a standard shoujo anime,"

When I think of words to describe "Utena", the word "standard" never, ever comes up. :P
