Anime for Feminists

We love anime, but often times problematic tropes, fan service, and questionable storylines get our feminist senses a-tingling. What happens when a series we love develops aspects that make us question it as a whole? What about series that don't age well? In this panel, we will examine such issues both critically and objectively, taking into account cultural, social, historical, and (of course) feminist contexts.
