The Reverse Thieves look at so much anime and manga that it can’t be contained within a single podcast. Join Kate and Alain as they discuss everything from what they just watched to what is going on in fandom.

SWAT (Seasonal Watching Anime Taskforce) Reviews: A look at the first episode of the best (and sometimes worst) anime of the new season.

Rewatch Podcasts: We go back and watch a classic show to see if it lives up to our memories.

Nov 17, 2011

Kate and Alain from the Reverse Thieves decided to go back to the roots of their blog for this inaugural podcast. They start off with the initial question: Is anime actually filled with good, strong female characters or is that dream much like a Satoshi Kon movie? The discussion then unfolds as they look at what their initial expectations of strong female characters were when they started watching anime, the realities of the medium, and its future.
