I got together with some other members of the AniFem team (y’all may recognize Dee from the Utena recaps) to discuss how this season is going so far. Some surprises, some serious disappointments, and a few uneven bits of promise. Show notes are over at Anime Feminist!
Sorry, all! Moving…happened. Aggressively. A lot. While I was at Otakon I got a chance to see some neat things, including a screening of the Hiroshima-focused In This Corner of the World. I’ve got write-ups for you all on my overall experience and on the film specifically (feelings […]
Here at AniFem we talk a lot about fanservice—no surprise, given how predominant and normalized the sexualization of (mostly female) characters is in the industry. But it’s far from a cut-and-dried issue: a boobs ‘n’ butts show about adults isn’t the same as panty shots of a 13-year-old […]
I got together with some fellow nerds to talk about the excellent (if sometimes uneven) coming-of-age story/queer romance, Flip Flappers! (Spoilers, obviously). Topics of discussion include (so much) yonic imagery, sexuality metaphors, holding onto personhood after motherhood, and sad garbage children doing their best. Full show notes […]
Sorry, readers; I’ve been spinning a lot of plates as of late between recording and editing podcasts, doing week to week posts like this one, and working on projects that haven’t quite made it to air yet (in addition to an upcoming month of real-world concerns that are […]
It’s that time again! I’m usually the least up-to-date person on the AniFem team, but I still had some favorites that I wanted to write up. Now that we’ve knocked out the Summer 2017 premieres, it’s time to take a fond look back at our favorites from last season. We talked […]
I watched so much anime over the last two weeks, readers. More than I think I’ve ever tackled during the start of a new season. You may recall that I reviewed a handful of titles for Anime Feminist during the Spring season. That handful rocketed up to a […]
Nobody seems to know what to make of KADO: The Right Answer, and that includes the production team. Like the anisotropic, KADO’s dimension beyond our own universe, the show contained multitudes: it was a deliberately paced political thriller one minute and a twist-laden character drama the next; its visuals […]
If you liked the first Q&A or if you wanted to hear me talk less about site stuff and more about specific anime, part two is here for you. You can find show notes and more info at Anime Feminist. We’ve got over $1000 in patrons now! Almost […]
I got together with Dee of Josei Next Door and Caitlin of Heroine Problem to discuss Rakugo — one of the finest anime of the last few years. Show notes and more info at Anime Feminist.
