GeekNights Presents: Utena
Episode six of Utena is a Nanami Episode. These recur throughout the series, and have their own distinct character. They tend to be humorous, tend to involve Nanami Kiryuu escalating already ridiculous situations, and tend to come just when you're about to learn something pertinent about the main plot. In this one, Tsuwabuki is introduced, a character who will recur for the rest of the show.
Don't discount these episodes. They're a metaphor for the series as a whole, and for Utena's progression through adolescence. The Nanami episodes tell their own story, and are more relevant to the deeper story of Utena than you might realize.Source Link
