Still, to think that such a fabled, erudite student would be gay…

If you do want a good new hetero shojo romance to watch this summer, though, Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun is my favorite new series this season, and it’s funny as fuck. This week’s episode made me laugh so hard I cried.

It’s much heavier on the comedy than the romance, but there’s still enough there to melt your shojo heart.

Blue Spring Ride is a very pretty show but man, I cannot bring myself to care very much about this Twilight romance or these flat, dull characters. So I keep delaying watching the next episode.

I’m so glad that tomorrow is Wednesday, aka Fujoshi Day and I can watch Love Stage instead, a very visually… not-pretty show but with a romance that is far more interesting and that I’m far more invested in - and for once, NOT JUST BECAUSE IT’S GAY. And even with the questionable moments that are so unfortunately par-for-the-course with yaoi.

(Also Wednesday brings Free!, where I can get my weekly dose of the undying love between Rei and Nagisa.)

wyattsalazar:

i’m critical of basically every thing i consume (and i still consume a lot of “bad stuff” or made by “bad people” for one reason or another) but if i hadn’t had any exposure to yuri and yaoi as a youth i seriously would have never encountered any other form of queer media because basically none of it existed that I as a teen could discover. and i wasn’t the kind of teen who could like, watch any show with two girls or two boys and “headcanon it” or whatever because before yuri and yaoi i didn’t even conceive it was possible for this to be a thing. nothing else in my environment suggested it

and that was back in the early 2000s, to this day there’s still metric shittons more yuri and yaoi stuff than there is any other sort of accessible queer media for teenagers and young adults. does a lot of it have problems? yes. i’m not denying that. the extent of those problems though is debatable.

Eh, “the extent of those problems though is debatable” - not sure if I agree with that, I think the prevalence of rape in yaoi is a pretty Big Problem. 

But otherwise agreed. I never got much into it as a teen, because I was so far into the closet that I was afraid of anything that was marketed as “gay” revealing my own non-heterosexuality. But I knew lots of queer kids who got into it because it was the only clear representation they could have in the mid-00s, and straight fujoshi who became more accepting of LGBT rights as a result of that interest.

I wrote about Sword Art Online and its treatment of Asuna and women in general. Check it out.

More anime and media analysis to be coming soon. Also be sure to follow Rose, the creator of the blog who invited me to write for it.

Somehow I didn’t see you posted this on Tumblr until now.

Eric is smart, you should follow him and read his post here. (Also, follow the blog in general, since it’s mine. :D)

Man, the anger directed at Autostraddle for putting A+ content on Facebook is insane. Yes, it’s disappointing to click on a link and realize you can’t read it. I don’t have A+, so I get it. But I enjoy Autostraddle and want to support them in anyway I can. If I can’t afford to get A+ I can at least tolerate occasional inconvenience and very mild frustration so AS can continue to bring me kickass content and compensate the people who provide it.

Just wanted to re-blog this to say thanks!

Q-Taku: Animesque Web Series RWBY is Everything Wrong With “Strong Female Characters”

Q-Taku: Animesque Web Series RWBY is Everything Wrong With “Strong Female Characters”

Q-taku is a column by Rose where she discusses anime, manga and other parts of associated pop culture and its fandom, and her take on it all as a queer feminist viewer.

rwby 1

Anime is a pretty varied medium, with a wide variety of visual styles. But there is one particular aesthetic – the big eyes, wild hair colors and action-packed battle scenes – that’s associated with it more than any other, and when even American productions like Avatar: The Last Airbender copy it, those shows tend to be popular among anime fans. So for a column that I intended from the outset to be about anime’s fans as much as the series themselves, I figured I should cover the latest anime fan fixation I wish would go far, far away: RWBY– even though it’s American and, thus, not technically anime.
