Hi! I was wondering, since you seem pretty well-versed in anime, and I'm relatively new to it, do you have any anime to suggest that are very good from a feminist perspective? (I've already watched sailor moon and little witch academia, though)
“Good from a feminist perspective” is tricky since Japanese feminism often has a pretty different discourse than US feminism. (Like, apparently Japanese Feminist discourse on Sailor Moon is very very complicated)
I can talk about anime that I personally found enjoyable though?
Right now I’m working on Wandering Son which deals with trans kids starting middle school, and it is wonderful.
Sweet Blue Flowers is a really sweet romance and look at coming out for queer girls (without ever being like, gross or fan servicey)
Flip Flappers is really good if you liked Sailor Moon and enjoy weird surrealist stuff. Like, magical girls + really trippy
No. 6 is a cool Sci Fi with a gay romance and a trans character (this is a little complicated. the character is question is presented as rather agender, and in the Japanese uses gender neutral pronouns)
Bodacious Space Pirates, despite the questionable name, is really light and fun as well.
