Absolutely tooting my own horn here, but I’ve just launched a series I think a lot of people in this forum would be into. It’s going to be a show-by-show look at the Japanese magical girl genre, with a hefty mix of history, analysis, and review for each show. Intro to the series below:
I’ve been researching, planning, watching, and scripting for the first few episodes of the series for the better part of six months now, so even if you’re not into the genre, you should still get some interesting media history and crit out of it! The first proper episode after this one will be looking at early ancestors of the genre, including Princess Knight and Hakujaden.
