Mission to Zyxx is a funny-ass improvised fiction podcast. Relatively new, so starting from the beginning is recommended.

Lessons From 2017
This year was a giant year of change for me. Things got back on track, in more ways than one. Opportunities expanded. Readership has increased. Evolution imminent. All great things. This post is to share the biggest turning points for me in 2017, and a remi...

Some assorted Yuki Yuna thoughts I wrote as a pinned comment on our latest review:
______

Carlos here. Some thoughts I want to put out there so I don't have to put Dave through them when we record our review of/reaction to this train wreck in a week. Long-ish post, so be warned.

Thought #1: criticism and scrutiny of a thing still apply when said thing is a multimedia project. Basically, Yuki Yuna has a bunch of <echo> supplemental materials </echo> that add to the overall story. Fine and dandy. That doesn't mean that we can't criticize the exclusion of certain materials in this season (ie, KuMeYu) and the inclusion of others (ie, WaSuYu). The same applies for anything -- and I do mean anything -- with supplemental material, from Japan or anywhere. Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, and Star vs. The Forces of Evil all also have books, comics, special features, et al that supplement the universe, and sometimes we feel that these materials deserved to be part of the "main fiction" as it were. Not always, but sometimes. Did you know the universe created Glossaryck who in turn created most of the Magic High Commission?

Thought #2: Takahiro wanted the Yuusha stories to be about young girls because he's going for the whole "pure maiden sacrifice" theme. Pretty sure he even said so himself. That doesn't make these stories any less fetishistic towards underage girls, a problem in the magical girl genre that, as I've mentioned countless times on various CDAR videos, feminist, LGBTQIA+, and other social justice groups/movements in Japan have called out. That doesn't mean you can't enjoy Yuki Yuna, or Madoka, or Sailor Moon, or anything else. It does mean, though, that storytellers like Takahiro can, and should, better themselves, and remember that they can tell stories centering on girls without fetishizing them with a fictional world that demands said fetishization. (If the finale of S2 explains that, like, the Heavenly Gods installed this limitation out of the mistaken belief teenage girls were weak and said Heavenly Gods get themselves killed because of this, I'll forgive it. <-- If that happens, I wrote this post on December 30 and it will be the prediction to end all predictions.)

Thought #3: Fuck societal and patriarchal norms, if there isn't at least one confirmed yuri relationship beyond mere subtext by the end of this shit, I riot.

That is all. Carlos out.

Title card for our next #YuYuYu reaction/review. It's a tad verbose. Can you tell we think #KuMeYu deserved to be part of this season?
