Neo Yokio is the latest western work to be inspired by anime, but it’s far from the only one. As kids who got into anime during the ’90s boom grow up and make their own shows, more and more anime influences are being reflected in western media.

  • What are the best/worst instances of this genre? How do you define what makes them good?
  • Do you have different expectations for western animation?
  • What tropes in anime would you like to see reflected, subverted, or interrogated in a western work?

At this stage, we have raised enough money to be able to pay for contributed posts, behind the scenes admin, and audio editing for weekly podcasts. Our next goal is to pay the editors who have worked on AniFem as volunteers since before launch, making enormous contributions for no pay. Help us pay them for their work at a rate of $15 an hour by becoming a patron for as little as $1 a month!

We Need Your Help!

We’re dedicated to paying our contributors and staff members fairly for their work—but we can’t do it alone.

You can become a patron for as little as $1 a month, and every single penny goes to the people and services that keep Anime Feminist running. Please help us pay more people to make great content!
