When this season started out, Clean Freak! Aoyama kun had a huge uphill battle to win my respect. I can count the number of sports anime that have really grabbed me on one hand, and even if that weren’t the case… well, look at the title. While admittedly that “Clean […]
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 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.
