Anime Everyday Day 2: Yuki Yuna is a Hero
WOW this series was better than expected. It really kicked off in the second half, and honestly Togo (left) is one of my favorite characters in anime now. The series has a lot of themes of disability and disabled characters, and honestly I am an abled person so I’m not sure how valuable my critique of the subject is, but overall I thought things were handled very well. Also: they are SO girlfriends. VERY gay.
EDIT: just wanted to add to this post that I agree with ppl in the tags about the disability being treated better in the first half of the show!
SPOILERS!! Overall I just kinda shrugged at the stuff at the end bcus well… while i found it annoying that everyone got magically ‘cured’ at the end, I was also considering that some of the shit that happened to them (esp karin :c) would have been pretty devastating to live with. IDK, i felt that the show took the stance of “disabilities are a part of life and should be respected, accommodated, and should not define a person”, but also “disabilities do pose challenges and make life more complicated, so getting rid of them would be better for that person”. I do not know how disabled ppl feel about this stance, though, and I’m not really at liberty to weigh in on it. From my POV, it was disappointing that everyone was 100% cured, but it also made sense as a reward in the narrative.
