Episode 14 – Queer Manga Grab Bag

It’s about time we talked about more manga that’re gay not just implicitly but explicitly as well. So, we’re diving right into several this week! Join us as we talk about boys’ love, girls’ love, and even furry wizards. We share our queerpinions on:

  • Scarlet Beriko’s Jackass!
  • Haji’s Love in Limbo
  • Yuriko Hara’s Cocoon Entwined
  • Nagabe’s The Wize Wize Beasts of the Wizarding Wizdoms
  • Effective and not-so-effective handling of unsavory genre tropes
  • The joy of seeing queer people centered in genre fiction, including stories with spiritual themes

You can also find the episode on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Podcast Addict!

Content warning: We’re a fairly NSFW podcast that includes use of reclaimed homophobic slurs. Our discussion is full of spoilers for the titles listed above, and also touches on topics including genre tropes of homophobia, sexual assault and inappropriate student/teacher relationships. Plus there’s some talk of spirituality, death, and atonement for one’s sins.
