Episode 13 – Gay Sand

This week we kick off our discussion of post-time-skip Naruto. It’s a heartfelt story of puppets, eye powers, and young gay men’s first loves, all filtered through a fisheye lens. We share our queerpinions on:

  • Artistic trends and changes throughout the series
  • Naruto’s themes of generational relationships and growth
  • Special eye powers and how they morph their victims into a Gumby-like state
  • Action series attempting to deny their blatant homosexual themes with proclamations about friendship
  • The most heartfelt depiction of two boys holding hands in the history of fiction

You can also find the episode on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Podcast Addict! To catch up on our Naruto coverage thus far, check out parts one, two, three, and four.

Content warning: We’re a fairly NSFW podcast that includes use of reclaimed homophobic slurs. Our discussion is full of spoilers up through Naruto chapter 281.
