Despite that I love reading manga, and I’m glad to have grown up in an era to see it become increasingly respected in western culture,
I hope that western readers do not grow up to adopt some of the gendered themes of manga culture as acceptable. Total lack of effective communication between the sexes, especially in the case of all these “harem” fantasies, is something that no person should ever accept as normal. While there is a much larger girl population of readers to manga as compared to American comics, which focus more on a male audience, girls should never accept some of the bullshit ways that guys are allowed to act in mangas.
As far as American comics… Well, in terms of feminism , I don’t even mention that because that’s been a lost cause for decades.
