Episode 24: Magical Girls, or Angela’s crush on Sailor Jupiter

Copy of Ep 22

In the name of the moon! Angela and Kelly chat about the legacy of Sailor Moon in Western fandom, share some of our favorite magical girl anime and manga, and try to break down what makes a magical girl. Are magical girls superheroes? Is Squirrel Girl a magical girl? Plus, a quick look at the latest Comicsgate nonsense for those wondering what was happening on Twitter last week.
