Anime Versus Manga

Last week's duel was between Shinohara Wakaba and Kaoru Kozue.   The innocent heart of Wakaba stood no chance against the rage of Kozue's....  sword.  Black rose signet dissolved into ash as Wakaba fails to move  on to Round 3. 

Round 2, Duel 12:
Kunihiko Ikuhara versus Chiho Saito

Fourth duel of round two.   Animation director versus manga artist.  In most cases, the mangaka creates the manga and then it's picked up for an animation.  In Utena we have two versions of the story as both created their own dynamics of the Ohtori Academy scene.  Many of the homosexual tones were removed completely in the manga interpretation and many characters from the anime never appeared in the manga either.  Mystical, magical Ikuhara versus the earthy Saito; who will progress to Round 3?
