We like to make a special episode each June for our listeners who celebrate Pride Month by focusing our critical lens on a piece of media (be it anime, manga, or game) that puts LGBTQIA+ groups in the spotlight and this year we chose Wandering Son or Hourou Musuko, the story of a young trans woman and her transformation in her blooming years of middle school as she deals with love, drama, and friendship. Of course we can't do it alone (I say we but Audrey hasn't come back from her training or journey of self discovery or whatever I'm calling it this week) so we got our friend Sinful Scientist to join in since he has a lot to say about this anime and had kind of a hand in introducing it to us? He uses my Crunchyroll so I can see what he watches and he watched this like forever ago. Anyways, they Vtube and that's cool so we're cool by the transitive property, you know? We also discuss other LGBTQIA+ stories and manga but we really just kind of spew tangents but hey! It's a solid episode, I think. I'm a pretty good judge of my own character. I'm like a 6.5 out of 10. That's how you know I'm not a liar because I didn't give myself the 10 out of 10 that I deserve. As always, check out new episodes every Sunday by going to our website at www.otakumelancholy.com to see all our links including our social media and join the Discord at https://discord.gg/rUHYUyW to continue the conversation!
