Strip by: Garlene1987

Anthy: Hi, there... I'm Anthy Himemiya, and this is my monkey, Chu-Chu.
Chu-Chu: Hi, there. I'm Chu-Chu. I'm a monkey and this is my Rose Bride, Anthy.
Anthy: Our only thought is to confuse you.
Chu-Chu: Feed me.

The author writes:

At last, a Revolutionary Girl Utena reference on SRoMG (credit to Lubaf for the specific idea though. As I described it on the forums, Revolutionary Girl Utena is a surreal shōjo manga series that deconstructs a lot of tropes of the genre and has a multitude of layers and interpretations, as well as strong LGBT themes. In other words, it ain't Pokémon. And yes, Chu-Chu is a monkey even though he looks like a mouse (most fans in the old days just called him a monkey-mouse).

Credit for the Anthy and Chu-Chu pics goes to the gallery of the FANTASTIC Utena fansite Empty Movement, whose creators I hope see this and get a kick out of it.
