Utena Tenjou (天上 ウテナ, Tenjō Utena)

Utena is a tomboyish, courageous, and naïve character who lives to emulate the idealized prince figure from her childhood. She is forthright, honest, and friendly. Nearly all the girls in school idolize her. She both subverts, and conforms to the stereotypes she embodies, as a noble warrior, and a naive magical girl in danger of becoming a damsel in distress. The series chronicles her journey to protect her friend Anthy, and become a truly noble Prince. Her Dueling Rose is white.

Revolutionary Girl Utena (少女革命ウテナ, Shōjo Kakumei Utena)

Is a manga by Chiho Saito, and anime directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara. The manga serial began in the June 1996 issue of Ciao, and the anime was first broadcast in 1997. The anime, and manga were created simultaneously, but, despite some similarities, they progressed in different directions.

The series is divided into four story arcs, in each of which Utena comes to face a different challenge at Ohtori Academy. In all of them, Utena must defend her title as the owner of the Rose Bride, with the intention of protecting Anthy. The duels almost always occur when someone with the Rose Crest ring challenges the current Engaged, though the Engaged may challenge other Duelists as well.

No refusal is accepted. The matches occur in the dueling arena, a large, high platform in the academy's outskirts, which is only open to duelists. The Rose Bride pins roses to the Duelists' jackets. They then swordfight, until one duelist wins by knocking away the opponent's rose with his or her blade.
