I like this show but some bits are kinda bad, alas

Carole and Tuesday 

Okay I wasn't sure about the thing with the guy doing the handshake in the park in s01e07 but they made it super cute at the end of that episode? Is that a kinda overt black stereotype and in the broader context of black stereotypes in anime how bad is it?

Show thread

Carole and Tuesday spoilers; Bebop spoilers 

Also the trans mom subplot. It's just really started kicking off but I can't see it ending well. My money's on something tragic like they did with the trans subplot in Bebop

@andi I've been slowing going through it with my GF. And yeah I can't help but roll my eyes at the whole violent lesbian stalker sub plot and the how trans people only exist in the show from MARTIAN RADIATION INTERSEX DISEASE or as a joke segment
it's all really frustrating when there's so much of it I do enjoy

Carole and Tuesday 

@fun oh gosh I'm not that far yet. That sounds awful.

Jesus Christ, writers, if you're going to posit futuristic gender norms, maybe research contemporary ones first. Thx...

@andi what really gets me is llike some of the time they get it all really right

you stuff like a great a rap number where a black artist is talking about experiences with racism.

or like a really nice moment of a man meeting up with his old bi ex-wife, the ex having her own wife now and showing a tender kiss between then, and the male ex husband being supportive.

Like every time they do one cool thing in that regard they fuck up with another

@fun I KNOW RIGHT!!?

And gosh I'm not trying to ship the characters Carole and Tuesday but as a musician in a lesbian relationship with another musician *I really goddamn wanna like this show*.

Carole and Tuesday 

@andi I mean, how can you NOT ship those two? straight up half of the duo's songs sound like love songs about eachother. Gosh, I hope they end up together

@fun I don't trust anime to let any sort of queer relationship ever be good after they gaybaited me so hardcore with When Marnie Was There

Carole and Tuesday 

@andi I haven't seen that one but I know the feeling hard.

Question. Have you watched Bloom Into You / Yagate Kimi ni Naru? Cuz that's a recent yuri anime that was an instant favorite for me. And from the first episode it's clear right away they aren't queer baiting it. It even follows two lesbians couples, and later even address all the harmful "it's a phase" bullshit in a great way. Only problem is anime doesn't complete the story, but the manga is complete.

@fun Putting this at the top of my list 💚
