[Podcast] Chatty AF 105: Neon Genesis Evangelion Watchalong – End of Evangelion [FINAL] – [AnimeFeminist]
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.
[Podcast] Chatty AF 104: Neon Genesis Evangelion Watchalong – Episodes 21-26 [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.
[Podcast] Chatty AF 102: Neon Genesis Evangelion Watchalong – Episodes 14-20 [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.
[Podcast] Chatty AF 101: Neon Genesis Evangelion Watchalong – Episodes 7-13 [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.
[Podcast] Chatty AF 98: Neon Genesis Evangelion Watchalong – Episodes 1-6 [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.

Coco: A Somewhat Touching, but Problematic View on Dia de los Muertos [BlackGirlNerds]
This review was published on Black Girl Nerds on December 29, 2017. While there were a few enjoyable moments in the movie, the erasure of Indigenous and Afro-Indigenous people and the Land of the Dead reflecting the real world white supremacist racial hierarchies in Latin America, ultimately created a very empty movie that is invested in mestizaje. Please read the review on Black Girl Nerds.
