- Mar 25, 2008Hello everyone!
I just wanted to introduce myself to the group. My name is Kimberly
and I'm quite new to the subsect of Yuri Anime. My gf about 6 months
ago introduced me to it and I have become enthralled.
Most importantly though, I am currently working on a graduate paper
for my Women Studies course on Gender and Language on Yuri Anime.
Specifically, how it is or is not feminist centered by the way they
are drawn, portrayed, if the plot or theme contains an element to
transcend internal and/or external repression, and ultimately, if the
characters still retain voice. I am also contemplating about turning
this project into an extended one for my Thesis.
I'm hoping to get everybody's thoughts and feelings on it. As of
right now I have seen Maria Sama Ga Miteru, Strawberry Panic, Simoun,
and Yami to Boshi. So if anyone has any advice, suggestions for
resources, or other Anime that would be crucial to look at, please do
not hesitate in reponding back.
Currently, I am a graduate student at East Carolina University in the
Multicultural Literature department. My B.A. is in Cultural
Anthropology and my minor is in Pyschology.
