( Shipping portmaneau’s are silly but useful, might as well throw in some extra meaning. Siegfried + Rue. Freude = joy in German. Sieg is victory in Germany. Joy over victory, cause I want that happy ending to work out. )
“I don’t have enough stamina to dance Giselle to the end.”
So says Rue, in Akt 4, as she dance-battles the Wili Maiden to save Mytho. On first watching the episode—(and honestly, on the next two dozen watches too)—I never thought too much about this line. The meaning seems…
I feel like I can connect most with Rue. She’s well-liked, but she feels like she’s not good enough and she struggles to accept that people can like her for her. While I have a very happy family life, in the social respect I feel that I can really understand her feelings. I’m always stuck wondering the same things she did, and feeling insecure.
Has anyone ever made a fake trailer that sets Princess Tutu to a horror movie, or at least an AMV with ominous music that makes it look like a horror story? I’ve seen a number that accent the show into other genres, but not this yet.
