Hello! I discovered Otaku Nuts a few months ago, and recently decided to apply all of my pent-up bile into writing a few reviews and other things for the site. I'll be writing a few pieces from time to time, so get used to me being here, bitches.
Due much in part to Sailor Moon's success in the mid to late 1990s, the magical girl genre has become one of the "faces of anime" to people who are unfamiliar with the medium. If one from this group were to be asked to describe what the subject matter of a typical anime would be, magical doe-eyed schoolgirls flying around and battling evil ranks just above incest in terms of popular answer choices, although it still comes in second behind tentacle porn.
Of course, there is much more to the genre than the big eyes and short skirts aesthetic that the general public perceives, as producers realized that in order to capitalize on the path Sailor Moon had forged into the west, a magical girl series must evolve beyond the original concepts provided by the likes of Sally the Witch. And thus came the Tutu.
|Yep, it's called Princess Tutu. Wait! No! Come back!|
