Awesome !
good choice between characters and tarots ^^
Chuchu as the sun is cute ^^
but I am not sure to undrstand your choice about the evil, the rose bride means the devil ?

Thanks. :)

I based that card (as well as "The World") more off of the situations than the characters themselves. The scene with Akio and the Rose Bride!Utena was meant to reflect the "wrong choices" and "willing bondage" definitions of the card, the one with Anthy representing the "bad luck" definition, and Anthy stabbing Utena representing the "hatred", "violence", and "disaster for one that benefits for another" definitions.

Hope that makes more sense!

These are lovely! I love how you've matched some of the characters/events of the series with the cards, though I'll admit a few confused me a bit. I especially love the Empress, Emperor, Hierophant, Hermit, Justice, Moon and the World.

I took II, XII, and XX. I may take more in the future.

I have the same question as churchyard, though. Who exactly should I credit?

Woohoo! As gorgeous as the infamous doujinshi tarot is, its choice of Death = Mikage always irked me because HE IS SOOOOO THE HANGED MAN OMG.

And here we have it. I also like the other matches. Lovely.
