This is so I can actually do this series of posts well.
Here’s what I’ve got so far:
Rose of Versailles (Finished anime and manga. I really enjoyed it and there’s good stuff there, but also a lot of problematic stuff, as can be expected considering the era it was written in.)
Eden of the East (watching)
Xam`d: Lost Memories (Finished. Meets criteria.)
Pretty Cure (watching)
Simoun (Apparently this is about a world where everyone is born physically female and choose what sex they want to be when they’re 17. That sounds sort of amazing, I’m curious to see how it’s handled.) (Finished. Good anime that has a well developed cast and says a lot of interesting things about gender)
Wandering Son (I know some people were wondering about trans* chars and this is apparently all about that. I’ll have to see how it’s handled and report to you guyz) (reading)
Kino’s Journey (Finished. Meets criteria, is a good anime)
Michiko to Hatchin: Finished. Great anime about the bond between two women.)
The Girl Who Leapt Through time (Finished. Not sure it would qualify as feminist, but it was a good flick)
Romeo X Juliet (watching)
Black Lagoon (watch more of it)
Magic Knights Rayearth (anime. I’ve read the manga, it’s good!)
Skip Beat. Reading. Also hooked.
Please Save My Earth
Paradise Kiss (tried first volume, wasn’t especially impressed- will try again sometime.)
Bride’s Story (reading. Beautiful art)
Beast Player Erin
Taisho Yakyuu Musume
Slayers (watching. Love it!)
Princess Jellyfish (Good, cute anime and manga. I’m now caught up with it and reading it as it comes out)
Alice 19 and other stuff by Yuu Watase
Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (Finished, except for new movie. Fairly good magical girl anime with some interesting points.)
Basara (Finished. Incredibly great and feminist manga)
There’s also stuff I’m in the middle of, like Ghost in the Shell and Bamboo Blade, that is really good so far.
I know there’s a couple recs I’ve gotten here that I’ve forgotten by now…anyway, anyone have any more suggestions.
