    Ep 084 - Magical Girls Forward March

    Ep 084 - Magical Girls Forward March

    This is the hot springs/beach episode, emotional break throughs from preceding episodes are unnecessary and will anything discussed here may have impact in the future? Probably not.
    Look we're discussing what we want from a genre so this is more light hearted then anything else. It's filler and we know it, and we're justifying it with it being a deliberate play to genre expectations.

    Ep 083 - Why the Magical Girl is Important

    Ep 083 - Why the Magical Girl is Important

    A genre based on girls changing outfits at the speed of light and fighting monsters is important in ways that we cannot stress enough. We get a bit personal in this and even address some bad faith criticisms that are levied at the genre.

    Ep 082 - Subverting Magical Girls

    Ep 082 - Subverting Magical Girls

    If we don't talk about magical girls after saying we are are we subverting the podcast or you? HA! It doesn't matter because we are actually talking about 2 magical girl shows, one that has been deemed the "subversive" magical girl show and one that does not get talked about enough but is certainly the more numerically subversive take. At least in our opinion, so listen in and if you think we're wrong. Subvert expectations and disagree with us with an informed opinion.

    Ep 081 - Superhero vs Magical Girl

    Ep 081 - Superhero vs Magical Girl

    At the foundational level these are the same product and yet there is such a difference in how these are presented and accepted by various communities. Why do the muscled up men in skin tight spandex not be adopted by the gay community yet the girls in fluffy skirts with cute animal companions are almost universally embraced with willingness? Yes we all know target demographics but it does go slightly deeper than that and we are ready to guide you through our readings on this.

    Ep 080 - Magical Girls are Gay

    Ep 080 - Magical Girls are Gay

    Trust on this, the hyper-feminine, butt kicking teams of all girls are inherently gay. In that the genre rings true to a large portion of the queer community and can oft ring truer to experiences then most media. Time to tastefully change our outfits via silhouettes and flashing lights for us to figure this out.

    Ep 079 - What Adaptation

    Ep 079 - What Adaptation

    Why did they even try? In effort to be like these adaptations we are kinda phoning this in and just having minor breakdowns at the various times works we enjoyed got thrown into the studio paper shredder and then pieced together in "adaptations". Along with discretion we go off about adaptational changes that just grind our gears because we aren't going to make you listen to us just say "This sucks" for about an hour.
