Most of the manga I read are almost ways on hiatus, stopped being translated a long time ago, or have completely random update schedules. I think the only weekly I read is One Piece. For slice of life without drama, Sumire 16 is one of the best. It's about a girl who is a puppet.

The Mouretsu Pirates (Bodacious Space Pirates) anime had a week ending. I realize that it's supposed to be a fun lesbian space pirate romp, but they had all this build up and the final fight was so incredibly easy for the pirates. I realize it was all planned out, and Captain Mika is the chosen one or whatever, but a single Grand Cross took out like two other pirate groups already so they could have at least made someone be at risk for a bit. No tension at all. The arc where they saved Jenny Dolittle was far more enjoyable.

Also, the princess twins were worthless additions to the series.

If anything, it just found its way into the mainstream. You've just been exposed to it a lot longer. And it's just as subjective as the term liberal. Someone who's being called liberal by some rednecks in the woods might be called right-wing nut by hipsters in a Portlandian Starbucks. It's politics.

I’ve gotten used to seeing them courtesy of WWE DVD/Blu-ray releases heavy on archival (read: pre-HD) content. I’m not a fan, but I understand why it’s done.

That said: Turner networks outside of Turner Classic Movies stretch everything 4:3, so custom pillarboxes are the only solution to their stupidity.

This is why I prefer "Social Revenge Warrior"—it’s a tiny bit more accurate as to their motives. People actually working for social justice know it’s not a zero-sum game (‘if I win everything, you lose everything’), but one where everyone can win (if just a little).

Personally I like to split them into two subtypes:

* The Social Revenge Warriors you just described, who think it's OK to bully and threaten people they perceive as having more privilege than them (It's not rape if it's female-on-male! Misandry or racism against white people don't exist! You don't like the OTP/headcanons I do, so I'm going to dox you! You DO like characters I don't, so I'll call them rapists/abusers and dox you! Baww, hurt cis/white/male fee fees! Interracial marriage is evil because it fetishizes POCs and contaminates them with white DNA! Internalized misogynist, white identifier! This poor hoax post is proof that X famous person is a bigot! I'm losing the argument so I'm going to accuse you of triggering me! Disregard and hate allies, they're all secretly evil or moles planted by the privilege cabal to sabotage us! #CancelColbert! Compromise, centrism, and settling for baby steps are for traitors! ).

These people are fucking terrible because they legitimize the worst elements of the radical left or revive ideas that should have remained dead and buried a long time ago, and actively obstruct the fight for true social justice in order to appease their own sense of sadism. It's pathetic. I identify as "liberal" and tick off a lot of oppression boxes myself, and even I've been targeted by these fucks way too many times because I wasn't extreme enough for them.

* And Windmill Crusaders, who don't target their ire at any specific group but go out of their way to find offense in everything (The word "crowbar" is racist! White people eating sushi and wearing kimonos is cultural appropriation! Frozen is racist because the Saami people are black, regardless of what geneticists, anthropologists, and people who know what they're talking about say! Dr. Strange and Captain America are whitewashed POCs! Naoto and Chihiro are definitely trans! Shinji Ikari is white! Ymir and Marco Bodt are black! Everyone in Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is trans! The Last of Us is misogynistic! Zoe Washburne and Ellen Ripley are tools of the patriarchy to shame femininity! The Far Cry 4 cover is racist and homophobic! Inu x Boku is anti-miscegenation propaganda! Whatever bullshit Nangbaby is saying!)

These people make up the majority of said SJW and they're less dangerous in comparison, but they're also way more common and obnoxious than the above so I don't blame people for getting annoyed. However on occasion some people are stupid enough to listen to them and give them some legitimacy, in which case sane social justice people can just try to counter it on a case-to-case basis. And sadly none of the stuff I just mentioned here is made up.

I think using these two terms helps because bigots no longer have the excuse of using the "social justice" part of SJW to attack people who are engaging in social justice advocacy without the hateful elements, and likewise the people being called these terms no longer can conveniently hide behind the "social justice" part of SJW as an excuse for their shitty behavior.

I agree, especially considering the long and sordid history around the world of white-on-white and nonwhite-on-nonwhite racism (the latter of which my family went through), which these people tend to ignore, deny, or try to blame whitey for instead of the assholes who actually committed it. Not to mention what is and isn't PoC is mega arbitrary and usually boils down to whatever is more convenient for the argument self-righteous people want to bullshit through. Internet social justice as a whole needs to be less goddamn Americentric.

Your points are kind of irrelevant, and also kind of wrong--Cutey Honey had many of the tropes that we now recognize as being associated with the transforming magical girl warrior genre, but it was a science fiction superhero show that *inspired* those sorts of shows, not an entry itself.

I think the "gender appropriation" thing is overstated, but the fact of the matter is that the Magical Girl genre has always been about little girls becoming young women (this is most obvious with the Transforming magical girls, of course, but it's even true with the old school Cute Witch / Magical Idol genres that spawned them), and about traits and symbols traditionally seen as feminine becoming symbols of strength rather than symbols of fragility. This has been true even when it's aimed at boys like it was with Nanoha. A "magical boys" show is not so much a commentary on gender norms as it is just a standard superhero or sentai show with more fanciful trappings.

I don't think there's any reason to be up in arms about it. But yes, I think it's fair to say that an appropriation of something intended to give strength to a group of people who traditionally feel weak and putting it in the hands of a group of people who have always been taught to think of themselves as strong. The target audience is irrelevant to the what message it's sending, and the fact that it's fap-bait doesn't change the fact that it's doing it. There's no reason to be offended by it or to campaign against it, but that's a thing that is happening.

You want to be careful about jumping to that conclusion because that's only true from a Westerner-centric viewpoint, and it's an attitude I've seen native Japanese feminists get extremely annoyed by. To them the female empowerment themes of the magical girl genre are overtaken by the continued reinforcement of traditionally "feminine" iconography that limits women's gender expression to this day. Characters like Makoto from Sailor Moon who are insecure in their femininity are an example of that struggle.

It's like a more comical Billy Elliot. I don't see why that would be stepping on feminists' toes. If anything, as long as it's not a minstrel show then all but the most rabid misandrists should be embracing that kind of thing as a two-pronged assault on gender barriers, not treating it as yet another attempt by men to actively rub it in the face of women like the crazies are convinced it is.

Earth Defense episode two revealed the "magic" was super science, like Cutey Honey. In fiction, super science is basically magic; Cutey Honey is as much "magical warrior girl" as it is "sci fi superhero", seeing as how it helped start and popularize many of the tropes associated with it.

I don't think sex education is itself the issue (although if Kodomo no Kodomo is any indication that's pretty sorry too), I think it's mostly about what they learn about gender relationships culturally, a cultural pressure to succeed in every way, and a collectivist culture with a strong face-consciousness which makes public humiliation unbearable.

Kind of late, but you have to understand that compared to the West, Japan actually has a long history of training women (especially noblewomen) in the arts of combat and self-defense, to the point that one of a housewife's expected duties was to protect the home during warfare. It's more socially acceptable in Japanese culture for women to be warriors than to be outright "masculine", so the magical girl genre isn't anywhere near as subversive within Japan as the West likes to think it is.

It's similar to how Japan has historically had better representation of LGBT characters compared to the West, but that doesn't extend to its rather mixed acceptance of LGBT people in real life, so I cringe whenever I see people on Tumblr claiming Kill La Kill is so progressive for portraying a queer couple because A. getting ahead of yourself for declaring them a canon couple B. it's not actually progressive by Japanese standards unless they stay together for life without ever getting married to men and having kids C. there's a whole genre of this kind of thing called yuri. Ever heard of that? Equating your KLK OTP with what Korra did is borderline offensive to the LGBT community.

It's fine to look to Japanese series for applicability (especially when Western media isn't giving you diddly squat I don't blame you), but going so far as to actually evaluate them under Western value systems is misguided at best and risks running roughshot over native activism at worst.

No. GL/Shoujo-ai is often used synonymously with yuri, but they are both terms that exist in Japan. Enough so that the term "yuri" is a frequent source of both verbal and visual puns, such as having "lilies" present in a scene with two women bonding (since "yuri" means lily), or all the recent slate of shows playing on the word yuri to imply that it's going to have girl-on-girl action.

In the past I've heard it suggested that shoujo-ai is non-explicit and yuri is explicit, but I don't think that's the case anymore. I rarely see the word shoujo-ai used at all these days.

As to the yuri-genre, contrary to what >>90820 suggested, most of the yuri I've read outside of hentai tends to imply permanent relationships for the participants. That doesn't mean life-long homosexuality has become acceptable in Japan (it's still very much a country that lives by the idea that "The nail that sticks out gets hammered down,") but yuri manga at least seems to be unambiguously love stories a lot of the time.

They re-released the Fatal Fury OVAs and movie (first time in anamorphic widescreen), Project A-Ko, Golden Boy, Samurai Pizza Cats (and the show it was based on!), several Lupin movies, Tekkaman Blade II, and Jin-Roh. Now they have Yoroiden Samurai Troopers on the way AS WELL AS new DVD (and Blu-ray!) releases of the Street Fighter II anime film and Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust lined up for sometime this year.

Eh, standard grimdark outcome. It had good production values, but poor writing and story; essentially a Quentin Tarantino tribute where some people wear Power Ranger outfits and name drop. (Although Tarantino films have far better story/writing.)

Hell, the opening scene has them firing regular sub-machine guns. (Dunno what type, closest approximation I could think of was FN P90.) They couldn't even bother doing weapons that were either the original blasters they all had, or themed off of their individual weapons.

Pacific Rim was a far better "mature" Power Rangers than this.

That's like saying manga sucks because it doesn't have sound.

Berserk and Onepunch Man (I don't know anything about Bride Story) are famous not just for detailed art but for overall visual storytelling--their ability to use the medium to convey events in an impactful manner. And different mediums have different tools for doing that.

The manga certainly set a high bar that not many can live up to, but nothing makes an anime adaptation inherently bad or even inferior in that regard.
