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.
