Magical Girls and Absent Fathers: Japanese Culture’s Reflection in Anime
I came across a Facebook post my friend Rachel wrote that sparked this article. It was her 6 a.m. musings about Sailor Moon and the lack of father figures in the show. After getting the go ahead to use thoughts in an article, I proceeded to write. Every observation she made was true. Most of the Sailor Scouts do not have active fathers in their lives. Most of them had absentee fathers either through work, divorce, or death. The gears in my mind started turning towards other anime where there weren’t any father

Contest: Win Lethal Weapon: The Complete First Season on Blu-ray!
Roger Murtaugh (Damon Wayans) and Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford) are back on the streets of L.A., in Warner Bros. Television’s adaptation of the classic buddy cop action-comedy Lethal Weapon. The series introduces these two polar opposites: Riggs a volatile former Navy SEAL-turned-detective out of El Paso, Texas with a tendency to dive into the line of fire following the tragic deaths of his wife and unborn son; and Murtaugh, a seasoned, by-the-book detective cautiously returning to the LAPD in the wake of a heart attack that nearly killed him. While the partnership seems doomed from the start, the dynamic is crazy enough that it just might work. The question remains… can the two of them work together to protect the crime-ridden streets of Los Angeles, or will Riggs get the two of them killed
