Year of the Magical Girl | A Lifetime of Thoughts

Female sexuality in relation to desire and the father is a major reoccurring theme in Japanese women’s writing. ”The imaginary father” is a intermediary loving figure, enabling the daughter a fantasy that delivers her safely into the realm of perfect, personalized (symbolic) paternal function.

I’m not saying Chibiusa having a kind of “crush” on Mamo, knowing he is (eventually way in the far friggin’ future) her father, is some deeply intrinsic Japanese cultural thing. 

But I am going to say that as a underlining theme relating to stunted childhood, as a plot device, and as an aesthetic that, yeah, “daddy crush” is not that uncommon in Japanese media, dating all the way back to Murasaki Shikibu.   

Which doesn’t mean it can’t creep you out, hell to the no. But it isn’t necessarily put in the story to be creepy so much as it is to depict a particular mindset.

It doesn’t matter who summoned us. We’re here now. We don’t want our loved ones to be unhappy.

The other night, Richard and I were talking about pet names for TV shows.  We both understood the phenomenon, but really struggled to come up with examples.  The Brutal Tearooms refer to MLP as “Ponies”.  Elanor and I have adopted “Baking Bad” as our name for The Great British Bake-Off.

So!  Multiplayers Assemble.  What are your pet names for TV shows?

The X-Files raised me so acronyms are pretty much how I mentally label shows but there are a few exceptions…

Omg Petite Etrangere was worth the wait. This musical is the essence of Sailor Moon; fun, story, and character. So cute, so ridiculous, yet emotionaaaaal.
