Thanks for all of your hard work, Shawako.  And thanks Nishishi, you’re a perfect choice for 2D club president.

I’ve sometimes gotten the question “why isn’t airi/hentai the 2D club president?”.  We only have Yuimin’s answer for that, and it seems that the philosophy has been passed on by Shawako.  "More than the club president, Airi is God.“ OK, can’t argue with that.  That’s also where the "Airi is a God” meme comes from.

So, 3rd Generation 2D club, not including graduands and from memory:

President:  Nakanishi Yuka

Vice-President:  Matsui Rena

God:  Furukawa Airi (aka member number 5)

Members:  Katou Rumi, Kizaki Yuria, Matsui Jurina (business club member), Takayanagi Akane, Yakata Miki, Tsuduki Rika.

OTZ the 2D club has really taken a hit with the graduations…

hentaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ;A;

There are lots of things that I respect about Annya!

でも子どもっぽいところもいっぱいで♪

これからもっと魅力的になるんだろうなぁ(^ω^)

From now on, she’ll probably become more attractive, I think (^ω^)

17歳の一年も素敵な年になりますように♪

May her 17th year too become a wonderful year ♪

世界を革命する力を!

May the strength to revolutionise the world be with you!

こんばんは、中西です!

Good evening, it’s Nakanishi!

今日は大好きな少女革命ウテナの原画展を見に大阪に行ってきたよおおおおおおおお!!!!

Today I went to Osaka to see the original art exhibition of Revolutionary Girl Utena which I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! 

ひ、一人だったけど寂しくないんだから…っ!!(´;ω;`)←

I..I went alone, but it’s not like I was lonely okay…!! (´;ω;`)←

まず原画展が行われている場所に着くまで全力で迷子になった中西\(^o^)/

First, it was Nakanishi who seemed to try her best to end up getting lost all the way until the exhibition venue.\(^o^)/

色んな人に道を尋ねてどうにか着くことができました。

After asking for directions from various people, somehow I managed to get there.

どの人も笑顔で優しく教えて下さって「大阪の方、なんて優しいんだろう(;o;)」と人の暖かさに胸がじんわり(*´∀`)

Every single person smiled kindly and gave me directions, and so, thinking “People from Osaka are so kind (;o;)” my heart was gradually filled with the warmth of people.

そんなこんなで到着したウテナの原画展!!!

With this and that, I got to the Utena exhibition!!!

もうっ、素敵すぎました…っ!!

Mou, it was too wonderful…!!

惹かれすぎて気づいたら一時間半くらい見ておりました…

Because I got too into it when I realised it I had spent around 1 ½ hours looking…

これで500円は安い…安すぎる…(゜ロ゜)

For this, 500 yen is cheap… too cheap… (゜ロ゜)

OP、EDの原画が見れて感動したし!

After all, being able to see the original art for the OP and ED was really touching!

初めて見た絵もあったし!

There were also drawings that I saw for the first time, too!

耽美さと妖しさを持つ絵に目が釘付けだったし!

I was also able to fix in my eyes drawings that unleashed strangeness and beauty too!

ウテナ様の美脚を堪能出来たし!

I was also able to enjoy Utena-sama’s beautiful legs too!

やっぱり少女革命ウテナの腰回りのラインめっちゃいいわぁ…って思ったし!

“Definitely, Revolutionary girl Utena’s waistline is super good…” I thought that too!

改めて少女革命ウテナという作品がとても好きだなと感じたのでした。

I felt again that I completely love the work called Revolutionary Girl Utena.

あの当時は、今みたいにパソコンで、ということはなくて。

Back when it was airing, it’s not like now, where you can animate stuff on the PC.

今日セル画を目の当たりにして、これで動かしていたんだ!!!と思うとその労力はきっと想像を絶するものだったのだろうと感じました。

Having each frame right in front of me today, thinking “this is how they moved!!!” I felt that this kind of effort has probably become extinct. 

だってね、小学生の頃授業か何かの体験でセル画を塗ったことがあって。

Because, you know, during my experiences in class as a primary school student, I painted such frames.

プロの方と小学生の私を比べるのはとてもおこがましいことだけれど、一枚を塗るのにものすごーく時間がかかってめーっちゃ大変でひーひー言ってた記憶があるのです。

Although it would be presumptuous to even try to compare a pro’s work to what I did as a primary school student, I have a memory of it being really tough even painting one frame, taking a lot of time, and that I was going “hiiiiiiiiiiiiiii hiiiiiiiiiiiiiii” (T/N: panting with exertion)

それを動かして、尚且つどれもとても綺麗で…っ!!

That they made it move, and even so beautifully…!!

一枚一枚に込められた愛が積み重なって、さらにそれ以上の愛が込められまくって、ウテナが、アニメが、出来てるんだと今まで以上に実感しました。

That each and every frame contained a collection of this love, and even more than this amount of love, I was able to feel that in reality today in how Utena and the anime was made.

本当に今日原画展に行ってきて良かったです!!!

I’m really glad that I came to the original art exhibition today!!!

あの世界観を感じることができて幸せでした(*´∀`)

It’s blissful being able to feel the perspective of that world. (*´∀`)

ウテナまた観たくてうずうずしてきた(笑)

I’ve started becoming tempted to watch Utena again (lol)

それでは、良い夢を♪

and so, sweet dreams. ♪
