The Milof ,

Anime feminist = <3!

I have really been enjoying this podcast. I like that they have a few people on each episode so that we can get a wider perspective on the shows and themes. I like that they can be critical of anime that it is problematic, without shaming those who like them (they even admit to liking some of those series as well). I really like the season check in and wrap up episodes, and really love the Fushigi Yuugi watch-a-long episodes!

Ergoemos ,

This show is always funny and insightful!

This show is always smart and enjoyable. I love the varied voices that come on to the show and each one is a treat that is special and unique between each episode! I look forward to it every week!

Chatty about Anime and Feminism

This show is great for what it is. Analysis and discussion of current anime and how to falls in line with feminism and other social standards. The hosts are all very engaging and the show has gotten better and better as they've gone along.
