SPRIGGAN – Episode 1 — Anime Feminist

SPRIGGAN offers a blast from the past with all its foibles, ranging from toeing the line with anti-semetism to engaging in some of the Cold War’s stereotypes and its source material’s plot weakness, with some degree of style and a lot of gore.

Smile of the Arsnotoria the Animation – Episode 1 — Anime Feminist

A magical girl slice of life that seems to be potentially positioning itself to step into the mary jane’s of many a dark magical girl series before it… after a chat about tea and snacks and being a proper lady.

My Stepmom’s Daughter is My Ex – Episode 1 — Anime Feminist

A just okay premiere that plays weird sex chicken at times with its “it’s complicated” stepsibling relationship, but seems to be aware of the line it definitely shouldn’t cross.

Harem in the Labyrinth of Another World – Episode 1 — Anime Feminist

Phantom of the Idol – Episode 1 — Anime Feminist

Much like ghosts, you’ll either believe in Phantom of the Idol or you’ll ignore it ratling around in the background due to its pretty okay premiere that, while not polarizing, doesn’t wow like some of Summer 2022’s other options.

RWBY: Ice Queendom – Episodes 1-3 — Anime Feminist

A stunning, action packed three-episode premiere that welcomes fans int he know with welcome arms, but risks isolating newcomers with no prior knowledge of the series.
