There’s thousands of notes on posts about how unfair it is that there isn’t a wonder woman movie and now that its been officially announced nobody is talking about it?
Like Can I get at least a hell yeah?
can we please take a moment to just appreciate this anime that just came out???
it’s about four middle school girls who are members of the “hero” club - they go around and help people wherever help is needed. in the first episode you find out that they were actually all selected because of the high aptitude they show, and they are needed to help fight off bad guys to save their world. oh my!
yes. it’s a magical girl anime.
yes. it’s a magical girl anime with a girl in a wheelchair.
yes. it’s a magical girl anime with a girl in a wheelchair WHO TRANSFORMS and DOES NOT MAGICALLY GAIN THE USE OF HER LEGS and STILL COMPLETELY KICKS ASS.
the second episode is devoted pretty much entirely to her character overcoming the mental block of her perceived “inability to fight” because of her disability. and it’s great. she kicks so much butt.
the first episode has repeated instances of world-wide (for the girls their world is mostly school-related, but still) accessibility.
it’s not a perfect (i kind of wtf’ed at her transformation sequence tbh), but it looks promising so far as that sort of thing goes.
anyway. it’s call yuki yuna wa yusha de aru, or yuki yuna is a hero. look it up, if you’re into magical girl shows.
working on gifing some stuff, too~
/prays for lack of gross fan service, adds to my watch list/
whoooooOOOOAOOOOOOOOAOAOAOAOAOAOAOAOAOA HOLD UP WHAT
I NEED TO WATCH THIS
Why #gamergate is important
Fun fact: Morgan Ramsay, founder of the Entertainment Media Counsel, did an objective study of how much of gaming journalism talks about sexism or social justice.
To do this, he downloaded 130,524 articles from 37 RSS feeds of 23 outlets, including The Escapist, Rock Paper Shotgun, CVG, Edge Online, Eurogamer, Gamasutra, Game Informer, GamePolitics, GamesBeat, GamesIndustry International, GameSpot, GamesRadar, IGN, IndieGames, Joystiq, Kotaku, Massively, MCV, NowGamer, PocketGamer.biz, Polygon, Shacknews and VG24/7, published over a period of twelve months. He then did a search on how often these games articles mentioned sexism, feminism, or misogyny.
The result? Over a period of one year, 0.41% of 130,524 articles referenced feminism, feminist, sexism, sexist, misogyny, and misogynist explicitly.
That’s less than half of one percent.
So next time you hear someone whining that “feminism is taking over video games journalism”, what they’re actually whining about is that feminism exists in video games journalism.
so i was on the american apparel website and i came across the halloween section…
i wonder what anime these girls are from???
ah yes, my favourite movie - nasty girls
definitely not one of the most well-known illustrated characters
