    Thumbs up sexuality

    hey guys
    I'm doing a major school project, I'd love it if you gave me your thoughts on sexuality in anime, specifically in the depiction of women. What do you think women usually represent in anime, why do you think this is, etc. Just any thoughts you have on the topic would be really helpful

    Thanks!

    oh, and by anime I'm referring to all demographics - female oriented, male oriented, and for any age. Just a generalization regarding all the demographics.

    That is difficult one because there are different anime characters. Certainly Yamato Nadeshiko is still alive in some anime but for the most part they represent a fantasy element. The way they are drawn and how good they fight is a fantasy element.

    Re: sexuality

    I have the perfect anime for you!
    It's Shoujo Kakumei Utena. AKA Revolutionary Girl Utena.
    It tells the story of one young girl's revolution against dominate males. It's filled with stereotypes, and everything that defies them at the same time. It has bisexual, gay, and incestual subtext and psychology and is my favorite anime.

    Here are some other essays for you to observe as well: circular infinity without end +++ analysis @ empty movement

    You should view the series/movie too. And just for knowledge, the movie is more ambigously sexual and the series is more indepth detail into all other characters and plot. The series is of course superior in every aspect of story and writing, but the visual art in the movie is gorgeous.

    If you decide to go through with it ask Giovanna or Yasha at Empty Movement: Your daily dose of Shoujo Kakumei Utena! for help, and check out their extensive essay and analysis forums here: In the Rose Garden / Master SKU Analysis Catalogue!
