Magical Girls: Who is Moonlight Knight?

Hey everyone,

We are back with a TV-oriented episode. This week we are discussing the genre of Magical Girls – a very popular, very trope-y anime mainstay. Series such as Sailor Moon and Card Captor Sakura had a very large impact on Daniel as a youth and he wants to educate Jackson on their ins-and-outs.

Beyond a discussion of the impact of cartoon girls in skirts, your hosts also have some recommendations:

This week you should watch Jane the Virgin 

This week you should watch Netflix’s relaunch of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy

Also a small correction: In the episode, Daniel identifies Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Uranus as the two sailor scouts with an implied relationship. This was a mistake, he meant to say Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune.
