This is incredible. Give the anti-weed propaganda a rest. Let’s stop condemning s plant that literally saves lives.
I saw this a few days ago.I find it crazy intresting.
CBO cures, man. This is the 4th case I have seen where it helps prevent and almost stop seizures entirely in children who have been put on pill cocktails all their lives.
see here’s the thing. the society we live in is still so hetero/cis normative that a characters sexuality or gender literally has to be explicitly stated for people to accept it as the fact it is. (and even then they dont, HARSH SIDEWAYS GLANCE AT HANJI ZOE AND SNK FANDOM) yet we have all these arguments saying ‘well it doesnt have to be all about that, it doesnt have to be said or shown, we dont need it “shoved in our faces”!’ when obviously, yes it fucking does, and yes you fucking do if you can still point at an obviously trans/non binary/gender fluid character and have the audacity to say ‘yea but its not “stated in canon”!!!’, whatever the fuck that even entails
i mean we have a character who has grown up basically their entire life identified as a female, and people are still like ‘um no they’re cis’ like can you please take out a map of the universe and show me what fucking planet you are from ??????
there is literally nothing else they could do to show that they are trans/nb/gf, it is crystal clear. i literally cannot understand and will never be able to understand the fantastic mental gymnastics you must do to justify in your sick head that they are cis somehow
except there is one more thing they can do, and that is point it out verbally, “in canon”, and honestly its kind of fucking ridiculous that you need that kind of ‘verification’ anyways when the facts are right in front of your eyes all the damn time, oh my GOD
what you are doing when you say ‘well its never stated they they’re not cis so they must be cis!!’ is just so vile, because you’re assuming that cis is the default, that cis is what is normal. and anything but cis is not normal and thus must be clearly stated otherwise, or else they’re just cis by default
i really encourage you to look inside your damn selves and ask why you have such a big goddamn issue with a character being anything but cis, why you are SO set on defending them as such, even though you dont have the fucking nerve to say anything beyond “~but its not canon they’re trans/nb/gf so~” because we know what you really mean you trash
These reviews are to examine the feminist-friendly elements of each series as well as the problematic elements.
In other words,this is simply meant to be a guide to recommend anime feminists like me might enjoy and also give warning of any elements that might disturb or affect someone. I am also aware I am limited by my white, Western feminist context in these reviews and thus, can’t really give anything other than the perspective of a Western feminist fan on various themes. I can only say what these series mean to me and what I take away from them as an outsider who is not the primary audience. If I get something wrong or if you are aware something has an entirely different connotation in Japanese culture that I am not privy to, I would love to hear about it so please feel free to tell me about it.
Angel Beats! intrigued me with its premise- basically a boy named Otonashi wakes up with no memory of anything other than his last name. A girl with a sniper rifle named Yuri lets him know that he’s dead. They’re in a sort of limbo for dead Japanese high school students that takes the form of a boarding school. A God is nowhere to be seen, but a girl dubbed Angel seems to enforce the rules of the school. Basically, if long as students behave and go to class like normal kids, they’ll disappear, and no one know what happens to them after that. Yuri is not ready to accept this. She refuses to disappear quietly into the unknown. She seeks to lead a rebellion against the God that gave them all such tragic and short lives, and she’s gathered an organization of likeminded students to fight Angel and then, presumably, her boss. She asks Otonashi to join her, but unable to remember anything, he’s unsure of which side to choose…
It’s an exciting premise, but the most interesting thing about Angel Beats! from a feminist perspective is the casual reversal of gender roles with the male and female lead of the show.
The fact is that Otonashi is a sensitive, emotional, bighearted and loving person. He’s not an action guy and not very good at physical fighting. In the beginning, he misses when he fires a gun, causing him to explain “agh! I suck!” and though he improves marginally as the show goes on, he never becomes a real action guy, tending to fall behind and be protected by the others when it comes to physical fighting. But his real value lies in his sensitive soul. Otonashi’s strength bought up again and again is his open emotion and empathy for those around them. The fact that he’s very compassionate and reaches out to understand and connect with those around him is what drives his character. He actually once saves the day by hugging another boy and yelling at him that he loves him. And that’s what saves the day when no amount of physical force could. Otonashi’s sensitive heart opens the eyes of others and ultimately brings change and understanding to other characters. He also cries a lot, and openly. Obviously, this is all very unusual to see in a male protagonist- he exibits traits that are typically thought of as feminine- hugging and crying to solve his problems while being bad at physical fighting, choosing pacifism, understanding and compassion over violence- and what’s more, these traits are shown to be good for a man to have by the narrative, and highly valued. This narrative shows traditionally feminine traits as powerful, and that a man who has the traits is strong rather than weakened. He also treats the women around him with respect and admiration and isn’t afraid to openly rely on their strength and praise them for it, which is great.

A rather compelling visual experience, on top of being a flawless musical demonstration, performed by Salut Salon, a charming German quartet from Hamburg.
