"The Romans loved roses. The Emperor Nero was believed to have had an extravagant rotating banquet hall in which rose petals cascaded from the ceiling." So sayeth BBC.





Okay, so it's not exactly a banquet hall but profusions of cascading rose petals can only equal Utena. And, I guess, bad Roman emperors.

Funnily enough, the article mostly just talks about blue roses, which clarified some of Blood+'s symbolism. For example, did you know blue roses symbolize mystery, or the attempt to attain the impossible?
