Behold, Utena Fandom. I am honored to present to you The English Version of procrastinus’ mesmerizing Chinese Novella 《流轉》 as translated by yours truly. As much is lost in translation, "Mawaru" will deviate in parts from what is in 《流轉》to maintain impact and readability. I do hope my representation of 《流轉》will remain a fair and faithful one in spite of the mild changes.
Mawaru -- the circle game of seasons flowing by.
It took just one season for Anthy to find Utena out in the world. It would take them much longer to settle into a delicate balance between living out their love, and living under the status quo of Japanese society. Nine years, and at last they have earned themselves a sustainable life under the sun. Just when it seems like all shadows are long behind them, a dark cloud arrives in the form of a letter from the dead.

Excerpt 1: “The Revolution succeeded; it crumbled afterwards only because those whose lives got revolutionized did not follow up on the revolutionary success,” said the Bride, her words setting their closed hearts aflame. “This time, will you help us help you?”
Excerpt 2: “Just helping the boys return to their old selves is not enough. Their schooling and future prospects will still be hindered whenever their being children of terrorists comes to light. Only by changing your world –- your society -- into one where criminals’ relatives are no longer assigned collective guilt can you truly save your brothers. This is the kind of revolution you must bring about: your Survival Strategy.”
