Anime 3000 presents: The Speakeasy
The Speakeasy is an ongoing conversation between the two of us about themes, trends, and concepts present in anime and manga and along side that sometimes there will be a critical analysis of fandom. If you were ever curious about our conversations that are the genesis of our posts then this will be utterly enlightening. If you never wondered about that, hopefully you will still enjoy the show!
Drink #004: The Pink Lady, Invasion of the Beautiful Boys!
Various people start watching the latest show for manly men who live and fight for manly things. They notice the men in this show for guys are pretty handsome. Some of them are even gorgeous. Parts of audience cheers with delight, most of them continue to watch without batting an eye, and the rest run to their computers to rant at the injustice perpetrated against them.
In this episode we begin to examine this phenomenon. Is there anything wrong with throwing some service to the females watching a show theoretically for guys? Also what makes the male fans go nuts over this phenomenon in the first place? This will surely only be part one in a ongoing dialog as we are sure everyone has more to say on this issue.
