At some point we have to decide if part of “gender equality” means sexualizing everyone or no one

Recently, I've been catching up on NBC's comedy "Powerless". In episode 8, titled "Green Furious", the show takes on the idea of a female superhero being exploited by stereotypical male executives and media. However, the way they chose to deal with it made me wonder if they weren't sending the wrong message. 7581

Ghost in the Shell’s “whitewashing” scandal is a case of good intentions aimed in the wrong direction

Before it ever hit theaters, 2017's Ghost in the Shell (GITS) was condemned for "whitewashing" because of the casting Scarlett Johansson as the film's lead. It may be an unpopular opinion, but I believe that this is an unfair condemnation.  7551

We went to NYC and got snowed on, among other things

Back in January, several of us took a trip to NYC. At the time, we intended to do some articles on the different shows that we saw there. Then, we got snowed on and...well, we forgot about it.

Spring 2014 Shows

With almost two months gone for shows in the Spring 2014 season, most people have probably figured out what they will or won't be continuing to watch. I have been, admittedly, slow out of the gate with this season because I was wrapping stuff up from previous season of anime as well as catching up to things on American TV. Now that that's passed I'm finally free to dive into the shows of this season to see what caught my attention. Before I get into the list I should mention that long running shows like Fairy Tale or shows that are a continuation of a series like Love Live! and La corda d'oro aren't mentioned because I haven't watched the preceding material, so I wasn't going to jump into those. With that in mind, here's a brief rundown of my very initial reactions to the shows of Spring 2014. High Interest JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders. In an earlier post I wrote about the Battle Tendency and Phantom Blood story arcs of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. I had mentioned that I enjoyed Battle Tendancy less than Phantom Blood and I'm afraid that the 3rd arc is going to take me in the same direction. That being said, it still looks like it could be a good show. I just don't know how I feel about "Stands" taking over for the Hamon based fighting. No Game, No Life I'm actually 3 episodes in to this one. This feels like it would be attractive to people who
