March 3rd is All Girls Day in Japan and March 8th is All Girls Day internationally. I drank amazake for All Girls Day (Hinamatsuri), March 3rd. Tres De Marzo. Amazake is a sweet rice wine, which people drink on special occasions like New Year and Hinamatsuri.
So, today I drink amazake for All Girls Day of the world. Yes, International Women’s Day. Yes, make it international. To all women. I’m determined to promote gender equality, so they would be as good as 2-D girls. Just like Christ is the model for Christians to strive to be.
So, All Girls, the world without men, that’s what I’ve wanted for a long time. A girl is worth a thousand dudes. Yes, one female friend is worth a thousand guy friends. How I wish I could be a girl. Maybe Valerie Solanas would’ve derided me for having “pussy envy.” But that may be true. I never felt connected to this world as a male. I felt disconnected, isolated, estranged, alienated from the 3-D world. Oh, three dimension… Is there a girls-only place?
In 3-D, there are always guys. I mean we can’t reproduce without sperms, so we can’t have girls without dudes. What a painful reality… Everywhere I go, there are dudes, there is no way I can avoid them in 3-D. During the day, I put up with them. So, what I dream at night is All Girls world, particularly All Girls school. That’s the only way I can get to the world I want, i.e., 2-D, in which the perfect genre would be Yuri! The divine art! And a Catholic girls school is the epitome of that!
So, here’s my All Girls anime top 3.
2. Strawberry Panic
Maria-sama ga miteru
Any anime above is simply divine! But since I am seventeen years old, I have a nostalgic feeling (saudade) toward sailor uniform, and the only access to this nostalgia is through moe. Thus, Marimite is the one. And its purely agapeic platonic yuri has really got me spiritual. And its catholicality is definitely contributing to my moetical taste. Before this anime, I only had a bad impression about Catholicism, evident from Benedict XVI’s recent apology for altar boy abuse in America. However, after seeing Marimite, I’ve converted to 2-D Catholicism. And its excess use of French words, ah, every title of the episode is in French, which also got me wanna go visit France. Ah, I want to join their sorority and become a petite sœur to Sachiko-oneesama! And it was the cornerstone to conceptualize my wish to become a girl. Yes, an Otaku’s lamentation and regret that I’m not a girl!
This is very upfront. Yes, eroticality is present in almost every scene. Moe + eroticality = moeroticality. Yet, it’s strangely natural to me. Girls love. Just beautiful… Yes, it’s carnal, but it’s different. I don’t feel sinful at all watching this anime. So, I think I’m a lesbian man, since I’m a meek (soshokukei), once thought to be a trait of womanhood. Oh yes, I like a girl with strong leadership. And catholicality is really great! In 3-D, I’m non-religious, but in 2-D, I’m a Catholic, yes lesbian Catholic. Yuri-Catholique!
This isn’t a school anime, so it’s inferior to Marimite and Strawberry Panic. But, the fact that the characters are all born female is what makes Simoun divine! Yes, all of them. None of them are born male! Ahh, I wish I was born girl. And they can choose their sex when they reach 17! Inoue Kikuko‘s divine age! Yet, there’s no catholicality, the best quality of school anime is lacking, but it’s gynocracy. Moreover, artisticality-wise, it’s amazing!
So, what’s your All Girls anime top 3?
