I love anime and manga a great deal. I'm also very interested in movies. My goal is to be a writer, and so I thought this would be a good place to get some practice in.

    Thank you very much! I tried really hard to express my love for the film as well as analyze why it is so great.

    Well, I guess I can’t blame you because its a very surreal show where the lines between fantasy and reality are blurred.

    Here’s the thing: Japan is a very sexist culture, though of course, America isn’t any better. But the difference is that while an American audience can tolerate pro-active female protagonists to an extent, Japan doesn’t due to its long history of rigid gender views. But when there are pro-active females in manga or anime, they tend to be overly-sexualized.

    I’ll agree to that. Though admittedly, there are some exceptional works that don’t exhibit tits & spandex-wearing superheroes. Think about the Vertigo comics, or the American Manga that’s being made.
