Welcome to Sailor Librarian, a review blog that specializes in magical girl anime, LGBTA+ authors and content, and unique comics!
As a reviewer of foreign and translated material, I do not endorse illegal streaming or scanning sites, which are unfortunately some of the only places where manga, anime, and comics can be easily accessed in English by readers outside of the US, or by those who lack the financial means to purchase legal copies. These practices do not support the authors and lead to legal trouble for the publishers – both legal and illegal as copyright is violated – as well as the editors and authors themselves.
Please support the official releases instead, or consider donating to the authors wherever possible to support their writing careers. Websites such as Netflix, Hulu, Crunchyroll, and Yahoo View provide legal access to anime, and Yahoo View is currently free.
One goal for Sailor Librarian is to have reviews of the most magical girl content possible. From classical anime to modern webcomics, every iteration counts and helps to paint a detailed picture of the genre as it has evolved and continues to grow in popularity throughout the world. If you have a suggestion for a magical girl series – be it a self published book, a free-to-read webcomic, an interesting thinkpiece, or any other type of media – feel free to recommend it to me using the contact page in the top left corner of the screen.
My second goal is to promote LQBTA+ authors, creators, and critics of magical girl media, and other types of media as well, especially horror. Critiquing queer representation in any media can get pretty depressing, so my focus will be on positive storylines and well done characters instead of the negatives whenever possible.
With these two goals in mind, enjoy the blog!
