    SHIROBAKO was pretty good, so I'm going to give KOTOBUKI a shot. I've also heard good things about Kaguya-sama and Boogiepop is something I've heard mentioned before as this really specific kind of light novel series? Might be worth a check as well

    WATATEN!: An Angel Flew Down to Me (Episode 1): Lesbian pedophile anime (why is that a genre now?) about a woman trying to seduce her fifth-grade sister’s friend. It’s exactly as bad as it sounds.

    Hey that is a good question: why is this becoming a genre? Do people feel like paedophilia is ok as long as all the characters involved are women?

      Yeah, I'm also interested in Boogiepop thanks to Digibro's constant mentions of it when he was still watchable, but the first anime adaptation was so bad outside of its great OST that I'm gonna wait and not touch it unless it's really well received.

      And please god can we ditch the pedo shit instead of making all-inclusive Intersectional™ pedo shit?

        I don't feel like making the pedos lesbians is some kind of attempt at making it more "woke". It seems more like the kind of double standard that's already been made fun of before and which holds that pedophilia is only really gross and scary when it involves adult men.

          I do feel like with the weird place pedophilia gets placed when talking about sexual freedom and feminism (and the equally weird place it sits in a lot of queer media / history) does make room for this kind of thing, but you're right that that almost certainly isn't the intention with most of these things.
