Hi Waypoint folks!
I’m curious if any of you follow or have heard of Anime Feminist, a website/podcast that does a lot of thoughtful and interesting anime critique that I suspect would appeal to a lot of followers of Waypoint.
I stumbled on it while looking for a source of anime recommendations that would actually be critical of sexist, homophobic, transphobic, etc. tropes in anime, and could tell me which shows avoided them or had value despite them. Lately, it’s made me actually excited about anime for the first time in years, and given me a source of criticism that I’ve never found in that space before.
(It’s worth noting, also, that they’re planning on doing some crowdfunding soon and I’d love to see them get more support)
Who else do you follow for sociopolitically responsible anime criticism?
