This four-disc DVD box set contains the final thirteen episodes of Revolutionary Girl Utena. All four discs contain an Art Gallery as an extra. However, the images included go by so fast, that it can be difficult to pause on a particular image that you want to take a closer look at.
Three of the discs contain interviews with three voice actors from the English dub, talking about their characters and how they started out in the anime voice actor business. Each disc also contains a link to "Revolutionary Girl Utena Storyline." On the first disc, it recaps what happened in the episodes on the last disc of the Black Rose saga DVD set. The remaining three discs have recaps of the episodes included on the previous disc. Each disc also contains a trailer, for when the discs in the set were being sold individually.
The fourth disc includes "Chu Chu Montage," which is two-minute long montage of shots and scenes that feature the character Chu Chu. The "Ohtori Academy Scrapbook" allows you to choose a picture of a character; when a character is selected, you can see a picture of the character, and a one-line fact for the character. There is also "Fan Art Contets," which is a slideshow of fan art and cosplay contest winners.
Overall, it's a decent DVD box set, although I didn't like the episodes on the first two discs as much as I did on the final two discs. If you're a fan of Revolutionary Girl Utena, you need to find a way to acquire a copy of this DVD box set.
