Sorry about that radio silence, everyone! As promised, I’ve been super busy preparing for Sakura Con, which is coming up in just two days! This weekend, I’ll have not one, not two, but three panels, all about women in anime. They are:
More than Strong Female Characters: Women-Driven Anime will be the first up on Friday at 2:00. Join me and Jared, editor of Heroine Problem, as we discuss what goes into making a great woman-driven show.
If you’re curious about some real-life women behind some excellent (and some terrible) shows, come see my panel about Female Anime Directors on Friday at 9:00 pm. I will be joined by my friend Michelle, who knows way more than I do!
Finally, I will be flying solo on Saturday at 2:15 as I discuss abusive relationships at You Only Hurt the One You Love: Mechanics of Abuse in Shoujo Manga. This was probably the hardest one to put together and definitely the most important of the group.
Come if you can, and make sure you come say hello while you’re at it. If you can’t, I’ll have audio/transcripts posted in not too long.
