We’re here, we’re queer for Kakashi, get used to it.
It’s our debut episode, and the topic this week is Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto. We share our queerpinions on:
- Naruto in general
- Hinata and Neji’s clan politics
- Gaara as Cool™ and subversion of Cool™
- Sakura’s character arc or lack thereof
- Haku, Zabuza, and the Land of Waves arc
- Might Guy and Rock Lee’s hair
- Jiraiya as Diet Mineta
- Weird, wild, and wonderful frogs and slugs
- Whether or not Naruto passes the Bechdel Test, and if so, with what score
Content warning: We’re a fairly NSFW podcast and this episode includes use of reclaimed homophobic slurs. Plot-wise we don’t dive too deeply into much after the Pain arc, but we still spoil the hell out of early-to-mid Naruto.
