Welcome to the inaugural post of Bucket Reviews, the place where I'll review slightly older anime as I watch it! Even though what I review will likely be at least a few years old, I'll try to keep everything spoiler-free out of courtesy for those who may not have seen it and might in the future. I can't say the same…
I just can't with Kotaku and all the transphobia in the comments.
I recently started rewatching Battlestar Galactica and I forgot just how great the casting was for it! So many female characters with just as many personalities and actual depth. Not to mention that women in the BSG universe are allowed to be badasses, something that seems to be frowned upon for some frakking reason.
After reading the comments on an article on Kotaku involving overt sexualization of a female character (I don't know why I bother anymore) it hit me: misogynistic gamers want to have their cake and eat it too.
