Class 11 – What?s with All the Gender Stereotypes?

When you have watched enough anime (as our profs have), various trends and patterns start to emerge. One of them is gender stereotyping and as it turns out, otakus love to categorise characters into stereotypes as much as anime creators and mangaka love to create them. But here at SOAS, we also love to question and critique such stuff and so, this week?s class is a bit more nerdy and geeky than usual as Anthea, Eran, Jeanne, Yeng and Kash don their academic personae and talk about female stereotyping in anime. Whether you agree or disagree with their views is totally up to you!

This week?s music choice is the third OP from Bakemonogatari: Renai Circulation by Kana Hanazawa
