I'm quite concerned with this panel, as i'm going to Crunchyoll Expo, and with the current events that are happening with modern day feminism. Which i'm sure we are all aware of whether it be from, Anita Sarkeesian and Zarna Joshi. I'd like to keep my opinion on these people out of this. As to keep controversy to a minimum.

but i'm sure we are aware of the events that have occurred while these 2 women were debating or simply discussing. Not even those 2 women in particular can be very "Radical" when it comes to their views. And i'm not trying to put down these people, Because there are radicals on the opposite side as well. however there are nut jobs on every side of any debate/war etc,. (My views about modern day feminism or what some might call "Third Wave Feminists" Aren't exactly positive. But that's besides the point)

Why I want to know what the panel in tales is simply because i'm interested to know what their talking about. I enjoy politics and having a good Debate. so I thought I might stop by there to see what they will talk about, and see how my opinion differs or is similar to theirs. Also I may or may not want to see if anything goes down cx (jeez i'm weird)


Another reason for my wanting to know is simply because, I don't want anything to happen such as a fight or a debate getting out of hand to the point of name calling or shouting, or even physical attack/threats. I don't know if an actual Crunchyroll Employee or some sort of Crunchyroll Expo "Panel host" or I don't know what word to use, could perhaps explain more to me about this panel. Or if you think you might know comment down below :3

I don't see anywhere that says Anita Sarkeesian will be at the Crunchyroll expo though. Which panel? Which day?

Is it this?

"A Feminist Survival Guide to Anime Fandom – 11:45 AM – Sudachi Stage
What do you do if your fave is problematic? How can you be a good ally? What’s the best response when you’re being criticized for feminist views? How do you get to know other like-minded fans? Join the Anime Feminist team as we share lessons learned and practical tips for feminists in anime fandom."

I see no further information on this panel other than that it's the "anime feminist team."

Yeah it did kind of read like those two women were going to be there. But that's ok

To me it sounds like a kind of weird choice of a topic to be covering. I certainly wouldn't want to sit through that panel. But there are a bunch of others going at the same time so I doubt it will be much of an issue with people.

Sorry to necro this but would rather that than making a new thread.

After watching the videos uncletim linked I also found another good video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vmoyy-MVMLI
I agree 100% with the guy in that video.

If Crunchyroll goes the way of Marvel...
I don't want to bring back the early 2000's method of anime acquisition
but I would if it came down to it.

Don't like censorship or agenda pushing nor do I like crappy "localization"
translation>"localization"
Sushi is not a hamburger.. and no animes talk of current American politics
or social issues. Don't want to see any of that in the future, thank you.

I mean. it's an important topic if you're female. being male just means ignorance is bliss.

Almost every single anime is super super sexist to females. They're literally always some kind of tool, object, or decoration for the male chars. Even when the female is the main character and the most powerful one, she's still just a weapon that the guys use LOL. Honestly, if someone was ultra feminist and sensitive to inequality between males/females, I would just suggest that they not watch anime. It's really that serious. That's really all that panel needs ot say: "Don't. Watch. Anime. (unless it's like pokemon)"
