I respect that this movie was made as a middle finger to entitled fanboys, but I hated how this movie ruined the few things I liked about the series. Come check out my final complaints about the grand finale on AnimeFeminist.
The plot was thrown out the window so that Anno can work through his depression which was neat, but left me feeling confused and angry on how to talk about this finale. The womxn and girls in the series deserved better resolutions to their story arcs. Also, I am not worthy of Kaworu’s grace (he was such a good character, he needed more screen time). Check it out on AnimeFeminist.
The plot starts to break down and Shinji’s desire for validation leads to more exposure to toxic masculinity and him finally standing up against his shitty dad. Check out this episode on AnimeFeminist.
In this episode we discussed gender roles, sex, sexuality and how the “monster of the week” formula was a lot of fun on AnimeFeminist.
I was one of the few people who never saw Neon Genesis Evangelion so the wonderful team at Anime Feminist invited me to chat about the series. Check out our great conversations about toxic masculinity and how Shinji is a good (flawed) kid dealing with his depression on AnimeFeminist.
That’s it folks!! In this episode, we discussed many topics such as womxn friendships, inspirations and how we would pitch the series to anyone. It was a lot of fun chatting about this series with the AnimeFeminist team and I would highly recommend for everyone to support their work because they prioritize marginalized voices in the nerd community. Please listen to this final episode on AnimeFeminist.
In this episode, we focused on our favorite Queer character Atsuko, Portrayal of Chinese characters and behind the scenes speculation of the difficulties of working with men on a show that is predominantly about womxn. Please listen to this episode on AnimeFeminist.
In this episode, we took a break from Michiko to Hatchin in order to discuss what learning Japanese was like for Womxn of Color and Non-Binary folks of Color and what advice we would give to new language learners. Please listen to this episode on AnimeFeminist.
In this episode we continued the conversation about Mejorando la Raza, Thinness, Sexual Violence, etc. Please listen to this episode on AnimeFeminist.
If folks thought I was done talking about Michiko to Hatchin, they were wrong. I feel very humble that I was invited by the AnimeFeminst team to discuss the series in depth with other amazing folks about this show. I was so nervous in this episode that you can literally hear me stuttering throughout this entire episode. I hope listeners were able to understand what I was desperately trying to say. There were a lot of heavy topics we discussed such as Mejorando la Raza, Sexual Violence, Police Brutality, etc. so please be advised that these episodes have trigger warnings. Please listen to this episode on AnimeFeminist.
