While I acknowledge that SotS is, in no way, Canon to RGU....frankly I prefer it. This is probably at least partly due to the fact that I didn't see any Utena until AFTER having read a good portion of SotS. The flavor of the two interpretations (if the original can, indeed, be called an 'interpretation') is very different, and I much prefer SotS' version.
Similar, I suppose, to the way I prefer Tenchi OAV continuity to Tenchi TV... and again, it's the OAVs I saw first... 's probably a trend, but I don't have enough data points to sayfor sure, yet :)
