Tl;dr This is a very enjoyable show even if you don't like music genre and is definitely worth watching.
In my case it was like came for story stayed for music and visuals although that doesn't mean story is bad or anything. Carole and Tuesday is a story about two girls named after the title of this anime living on Mars after it has been colonised(elon musk heavy breathing) and finding their way into music industry. First few episode start off very good with girls trying to sync their chords, looking for ways to gain popularity(via Instagram coz probably they are sponsoring this show) and gaining
attention of allies and people gradually. Also another main thing(enemy? maybe...) in the story is A.I. Most of the music is being made by A.I. (which doesn't seem way too far in future to me).
Story and Characters:
I think you know what story is about by now and in case of characters besides Carole and Tuesday there is a another Main-ish character with significant screen time(presumably) being Angela who is shown to be fighting her way against A.I. and a glasses dude who is all in for all AI no human future. Tuesday is shown as a timid and shy girl and Carole as a tomboy. Supporting characters also are quite entertaining. Gus being a drunkard who starts to get back on track after seeing the raw talent of these girls and Roddy being idgaf but i take the opportunity if it comes person and trying to mutually benefit by investing in Carole and tuesday.
This is the main reason why I like(almost love) this anime. Animations are on point. Cities,trains, stage designs are all look awesome. Music is marvellous. Every song up until now(highly likely later on too) including op and ed was in English and oh man they were awesome. Even the non vocal songs like Ertegun's DJ is ear pleasing to listen to. This amazing music combined with great stage design makes every performance to look forward to( there's 1 performance of carole and tuesday per episode on avg. but there are other people performing too and their songs feel awesome as well. )
This is a must watch even if you're like me and know nothing about music you'll definitely enjoy it.
(Este reseña también tiene una versión en español más abajo)
Carole & Tuesday is an anime where a pair of misunderstood girls try to spread their music and excel in the music industry.
While the audiovisual section is very good, the series (so far) does not reach much by 2 major problems, that is predictable and its tone so "Light".
The first chapter does a good job leaving you clear the personalities and background of the protagonists, as well as this futuristic environment where they live, these aspects are presented to the viewer without resorting to boring spoken exhibition. But what follows in the series is quite predictable,
actions or conveniences that will lead them to be known and fulfill their dream.
Being predictable is not bad if you have interesting characters or if the series explores some topic and this is my problem with this series, it's very meh in that sense with our protagonists.
The protagonists are Carole & Tuesday
Carole is a daring city girl and Tuesday a shy girl from a wealthy family, they like music and ... that's all I can say.
Yes, both are charismatic and have a good background but nothing more, both have basic personalities and never explore their transfondos or their motivations.
They don't differ much from the typical girls who want to be the best at something or fulfill their dream. Their encounter although it feels natural, the way in which their friendship is forged, No. The girls know each other recently and they are already very good friends even though there was not much interaction between them, besides their chemistry between these 2 or that of all the other characters (except Angela) falls into the category of the generic.
In Nana, the chemistry between the protagonists is created more naturally by a meeting in the train where they talked for a long time due to boredom and still do not become friends.
In Ashita no Joe the chemistry of the characters grows little by little and takes several chapters so we see a lot of interaction and the chemistry feels more natural thanks to this, one really feels the rivalry and friendship between the characters.
Ashita no Joe >> Nana > Carole & Tuesday
The tone is very "Light", there are difficulties in the series but never to the point where I felt some kind of tension. There is no strong conflict, the protagonist don't lose anything or risk anything to achieve the objective.
At least I can say that the drama is justified and it is not exaggerated.
In chapter 6 the girls learn how difficult it is to be on stage and that they are still new, it was emotional and plausible, although the message is lost a bit when you see that an idiot is more praised than them (The series could have been explored how some artists receive fame that they do not deserve with this character, it's a pity) plus they receive a pat on the shoulder of a singer that they admire a lot (Seriously, this anime must do a better job in which the story does not feel predictable).
This does not apply to Angela, the defiant and confident girl who must be a great singer because of her situation in which she lives. Unlike the protagonists, she suffers to achieve her goal and has a little internal conflict. At the moment the arc of development of this character has not reached more so this is all I can say.
Gus is the one who trains the characters to achieve their goal and achieve glory in an industry where he failed, that's all, is not much different from the rest of the characters with this archetype and sometimes his actions feel useless but at least he is having a little development. I hope you do something good with this character later as with Nanbu (Megalo box).
Roddy is also your typical boy who helps the protagonists and represents the male audience. Although, frankly, this character has sacrificed more than Carole and Tuesday together.
About the rest of the characters, I have nothing to say.
That's it for now, I'll be editing this review as the anime progresses and I really hope they do not put some stupid romance between the protagonists.
Carole & Tuesday es un anime donde un par de chicas incomprendidas intentan esparcir su música y sobresalir en la industria musical. Si bien el apartado audiovisual es muy bueno, la serie (hasta ahora) no llega a mucho por 2 grandes problemas, que es predecible y su tono tan "Light". Pero vayamos por partes
El primer capítulo hace un buen trabajo dejándote en claro las personalidades y trasfondo de las protagonistas, así como este ambiente futurista donde viven, estos aspectos son presentados al espectador sin recurrir a aburrida exposición hablada. Pero lo que sigue en la serie es bastante predecible, acciones o conveniencias que las llevarán a ser conocidas y cumplir su sueño.
Ser predecible no es malo si tienes personajes interesantes o si la serie explore algún tema y este es mi problema con esta serie, es muy meh en ese sentido con nuestras protagonistas.
Las protagonistas son Carole & Tuesday
Carole es una chica atrevida de ciudad y Tuesday una chica tímida de una familia adinerada, les gusta la música y.... eso es todo lo que puedo decir.
Sí, son carismáticas y poseen un buen transfondo pero nada más, ambas tienen personalidades básicas y nunca se explora sus transfondos ni sus motivaciones.
No se diferencian mucho de las típicas chicas que quieren ser las mejores en algo o cumplir su sueño. Su encuentro si bien se siente natural, la forma en la que se forja su amistad No. Las tipas se conocen de hace poco y ya son muy buenas amigas a pesar de que casi no hubo mucha interacción entre ambas, además su química entre estas 2 o la de todos los demás personajes (menos Angela) cae en categoría de lo genérico.
En Nana, la química entre las protagonista se crea de forma más natural mediante un encuentro en el tren donde hablaron por mucho tiempo debido al aburrimiento y aún así no se hacen amigas cercanas ni nada.
En Ashita no Joe la química de los personajes crece poco a poco y toma varios capítulos por lo que vemos mucha interacción y la química se siente más natural gracias a esto, uno realmente siente la rivalidad y amistad entre los personajes.
Ashita no Joe >> Nana > Carole & Tuesday
El tono es muy "Light", hay dificultades en la serie pero nunca al punto en el que yo sintiera algún tipo de tensión. No hay ningún conflicto fuerte, las protas no pierden algo ni arriesgan nada para lograr el objetivo.
Al menos puedo decir que el drama está justificado y no es exagerado. En el cap 6 las chicas aprenden lo difícil que es estar en el escenario y que aún son novatas, fue emotivo y plausible, aunque el mensaje se pierde un poco cuando ves que un idiota es más alabado que ellas (La serie bien pudo explorar el como algunos artistas reciben fama que no merecen con este personaje, es una pena) además de que reciben una palmada en el hombro de una cantante que ellas admiran mucho (En serio, este anime debe hacer que la historia parezca menos predecible).
Angela, la chica desafiante y confiada la cual debe ser una gran cantante debido a su situación en la que vive, sí sufre para lograr su objetivo y posee un poco de conflicto interno. De momento el arco de desarrollo de este personaje no ha llegado a más por lo que esto es todo lo que puedo decir.
Gus es el tipo que entrena a los personajes para lograr su objetivo y volver a alcanzar la gloria en una industria donde falló, nada más, tampoco se aleja mucho de su arquetipo básico y a veces sus acciones se sienten inútiles pero por lo menos está teniendo un pequeño desarrollo. Espero que obtenga una resolución similar a Nanbu de Megalo box.
Roddy también es tu típico chico que ayuda a las protas y representa a la audiencia masculina. Aunque, francamente, él ha sacrificado más que las 2 protagonistas juntas.
Sobre el resto de personajes, no tengo nada que decir.
Eso es todo por ahora, iré editando esta reseña conforme avance el anime y realmente espero que no metan algún estúpido romance entre las protagonistas.
An original work by the famous animation studio Bones (MHA, FMA, Mob Psycho 100, Noragami ...) that we greatly appreciate. This is something very surprising considering the genre of Carole & Tuesday since usually Bones often adapts us actions, shonen works. So what’s the value of this new work out of nowhere?
First of all the story begins with the introduction of our main protagonists Carole & Tuesday, Carole is a girl who lives alone in town, looking for a stable job, while Tuesday lives out of the city in a very rich family. Tuesday runs away from home, to go to town and meets by
chance Carole playing the piano on a bridge, she herself a guitarist, they associate with each other (in a futuristic era, with AI who can replace singers) it is from here that the story really begins.
A rather stimulating plot I think, it is distinguished by a beautiful animation and chara-design, music even more beautiful, and very good VA that gives us attachment to our two characters.
We find the will to touch people with the music of Your Lie in April, and apparently a future rival who will surely be on the way to our duet.
I do not have any information on what's next, but from what I've seen from these first episodes, I guess I can only expect quality for all future episodes, in any case I hope this will be the case.
I'm more of an action/adventure/fantasy/magic/shonen person. The only musical anime I have watched are Your Lie in April and Fuuka. So this is coming from someone who goes for great animation and plot with less emphases on the music aspect....
IMO this anime is a mix of music arts , good animation, and story development. So far I really like the development speed and a sly mixture of music from current or past generations. This anime has a different future concept that gives it a fun quirky side. The character development is really nice and gives a good taste of each individual's background and why they
are who they are today. The anime is really captivating and isn't too in your face.
Final thought: worth watching the first 3 episodes and if you aren't itching for the next then this isn't for you. Better than Fuuka, but not quite up to Your Lie in April... the quirkiness makes it close though
First of all, I have to mention that Beck Mongolian Chop Squad is one of my favorite shows of all time. With that out of the way, Carole & Tuesday is not far behind.
Set in a future where people live in Mars, we follow a couple of pretty miserable girls in very different situations. Music is dominated by AI generated crap and our girls are pretty set in their dreams of making music great again. Carole is our hard-working one-wheel skateboarding keyboardist who busks at bridges in her free time. Tuesday is the privileged one who is bored at home with her expensive Gibson
acoustic so she decided to be a runaway. We also have a third AI hating singer named Angela. She's the child star who wants to transition into music. This sounds like a Philippine soap opera but I tell you, the show is so much more than that.
The animation is so spot on and pretty 'moving' for an anime without any action. Bones is quickly becoming one my favorite studio for consistently producing some amazingly animated shows. Scenes are rich and some are even pretty cinematic. The characters playing the instruments actually closely match the sound that's coming out of it. And that's damn impressive on it's own.
Now for the main attraction, the MUSIC. I did NOT expect the music to be all in ENGLISH! But damn, the songs are so nice! Nai Br.XX & Celeina Ann are a hell of a discovery. Both of this girls sound so good together and on their own! The opening and ending are both bops. The insert songs are just as good. Angela is not too shabby either. Plus we have a Victor Wooten-like character! That's a sure plus!
What's preventing me from giving it a perfect score is that the show is a bit dragging. If you don't have the patience then you might find it hard to give it your full attention. After the first couple episodes though, the show picks it up a bit and we are treated with moments of joy and heart. Watch it if you're able to! It's definitely a candidate for Best of the Season!
"A rough masterpiece". it may be unfair for me to bring up "Nana" in this review but Carole & Tuesday gave me some similar chills.
in this review I won't be talking about the simple and nit-picky aspects of the anime that I would usually hammer on,instead I will simply give it praise where praise is due because if you are reading this review to see if you want to watch it or not,I strongly recommend that you watch it regardless of what is said about it,it is an anime that deserves as much opinion as it can get and believe me
when I say that you deserve to watch it.
I was getting sick of keeping up with seasonal anime so I took a few weeks break before catching up on this Spring season and man am I glad that the first thing I decided to watch was this.
lets get this out of the way first,if you can't stand musical anime then I beg you to watch this,if you can't handle VA changes when the characters sing then I beg of you to watch this anime.
A lot of Carole & Tuesday is done rather shoddily with plenty of derpy errors thrown in to the fray,however, it's almost as if it was intentional as I feel that it was better because of such flaws.
Carole & Tuesday does a brilliant job of playing your heartstrings like a guitar,every scene elegantly dances with the immaculate sound work of the OST,the VA changes does throw you off quite a bit especially when the songs performed by other characters have their voices heavily modulated,however, they only modulate Carole & Tuesday's voices ever so slightly to make it sound different from the rest by sounding simply more raw and natural,this adds to the play that this anime has on how music has changed so significantly in this world, Carole & Tuesday makes perfect use of the comedic relief mechanic,just the comedic timing alone can elicit a chuckle or two.
The OP and ED is my personal favourite part of Carole & Tuesday,I never skipped it once,the OP brings your mood right into the anime with gorgeous visuals and a brilliant song,the same can be said about the ending which does not in anyway throw you off the mood that each episode will leave you in.
let's just get straight into the overall analysis.
In Carole & Tuesday this plays a big part in what makes this anime unique, there is no CGI,only generated effects which only add to the simply beauty of the anime.
The colour palette is versatile featuring strong colours when depicting the "futuristic" elements of the world ranging to the more flat earthier colours of everything which contrasts it.
the style is a tad bit derpy but it betters the show in only good ways.
Characters all have varied outfits,hairstyles and features which make them all seem very unique from one another,there is not many scenes where they show a vast amount of people with much detail but with the cinematography utilized in Carole & Tuesday it makes sense especially when it shifts to the Mars Brightest features.
The environment feels a bit
I feel as if I should say that this is the strongest category in Carole & Tuesday but in my opinion it isn't, don't get me wrong the music is brilliant,my favourite part of the entire anime is the OP and ED after all,however, I have to point out the way the VA's all contrast the vocalists in the OST,it is something that I don't mind looking past but it is there,this can probably be solved by making a Dub.
general sound design is good but it is limited too,there isn't much effects used when things happen in throughout the anime but it supports the anime as it makes the music seem more intense when it plays so I can see why they did that.
The general voice acting is great excluding what I stated above. From the narration at the start of most episodes to basic dialogue the voice acting is solid and consistent,the VAs do a great job of breathing life into each character with all of them being very unique.
Also, Huouin Kyouma is Ertegun which is amazing.
This in my opinion is Carole & Tuesday's strong point.
Every single character feels unique yet also fleshed out.
they way characters interact with one another feels real and not cringy like a lot of the currently airing stuff.
characters backgrounds are fleshed out in clever ways throughout the anime with good pacing,another thing that has been missing from anime recently.
all the characters are deeply layered and have an air of mystery to them which implies that there will be more Carole & Tuesday in the future to explain such mysteries.
Plot & Worldbuilding: 7/10
the plot brought me to this anime but it didn't quite keep me in it,I would have to reward that medal to the characters and audio category.
It is fairly unique as it has an interesting twist which they play into quite a lot throughout the anime with AI basically commanding society on Mars but it isn't quite played on enough.
The worldbuilding was slow but with the first episode that was virtually all we needed for the entire season,as the pacing was brilliant even though it was being slow "implying" more to come which I think is fine as they did state at the end of the last episode that it will be continued.
Is it worth your time?
I usually never stop talking in this category but for Carole & Tuesday I am just gonna say this.
If you have the time and you are looking for something to watch then this is a great choice,I personally don't find it to be the most bingable anime out there as its format and pacing are perfect for watching it as it is being released,however, it just makes this the perfect anime to watch in-between other anime,it will immerse you and remove you from your daily life which is all you should really look for in an anime in my opinion.
English isn't my native language, so you may find some redaction mistakes; anyway, I'll try to do my best in this review.
- This review cointains spoilers -
Globalization, it's a strange thing: you can learn about another culture without being physically surrounded by it, you can know how a place in the other side of the world actually looks with just searching a little, you can even learn a new language without taking classes, but you can also see more clearly how the world is full of conflicts, you can see how the countries damage their economies in a endless cycle, you can see how an
anthem that was the pride of a nation now it's a meme (and don't get me wrong, I love this meme), and a looooong etcetera in both sides; it's good and bad at the same time, in other words, it's a tool which its results will depend exclusively in the one who use it.
Why I mention all this? Because I remember a friend who told me: "This isn't anime, this feel too much western, it should be broadcasted in somewhere like Cartoon Network", and although I still think he's exaggerating, he has a good point: this is done by a japanese studio, by japanese animators under the leadership of a japanese director which has a whole team of japanese people behind him (yes, there are also some no japanese in the staff), but it feels different, it has another essence, that's pretty clear, but it still has the elements that compose this medium mixed with others it purposes, and it works, or well, at least for me.
Carole & Tuesday tells the story of a pair of girls: Tuesday which comes form a rich family and has everything she needs, everything but one thing, a passion, moved for the search of this passion, she escapes from her house to the city, in the other hand, there's Carole, who is a normal girl with some economic problems, in a consistent search for works which could finance her musical aspirations; in a fast but casual encounter, these two girls find that together they could accomplish their goals and then decide to create a duo, now they follow a path in order to fulfill their dreams. That's basically the story... of the episode one, it's surprising how fast the things were established, but it was well done, not too fast for missing important things but enough to move directly to the show's focus: the music.
The world setting is interesting, we are actually in Mars and mankind has been there around five decades, the technological advance has been huge and now practically everything is done by IAs, it's a wonderful setting but it hasn't been explored enough, we know just the basic and it's fine, this is a music show with a sci-fi background, so I understand they're no focusing on it, but it would be great if they do. Other thing about the world is that Alba City, and Mars in general (at least what we've saw), has a strong influence from American culture: graffitis, brick facades along with huge and modern crystal facades, the Brooklyn Bridge style in the bridges, carnivals, pubs... it seems that New York has been reconstructed in Mars, just more futuristic; it's a beautiful landscape that the city creates and gives a more 'universal' atmosphere, although sometimes this atmosphere it's too much "in your face", but this responses more to the plot than the setting.
The characters are likable and memorable but not too much explored, at least not yet, because we have been given some hints about their past, being Gus an retired star the clearest example, from where they can make the characters take a path of growing, in this aspect there's a lot of potential where they can move them in one or other direction, I hope this will be well exploited. One thing that got me with a big question in mind is the importance of the supporting characters, let me explain, Carole and Tuesday are the protagonists, there's Gus and Roddy which are part of their team I suppose, but we have seen a parallel story about a singer named Angela, this plotline serves very well as a tool for worldbuilding, showing her conflict between natural and made by IAs work, an interesting story with a good plot but that doesn't add too much to the story, at episode 6, Angela's story hasn't make contact with Carole and Tuesday's one, and I've wondering how and when will be that contact. Allieds? Rivals? Enemies? I'm anxious to know it.
In the technical side, Bones have done a gorgeous job with the animation, the designs are pretty good and very variant with this semi-futuristic style in the characters, stronger in some than others, the animation has a beautiful colour palette and, although the CGI is visible and there some freezed frames, it's a very good job; the work in the opening is the best by far, with a painting alike style, in the ending the work is good too but not as in the opening. The work of the seiyuus is good but I have problem with it, the show changes the voices of the characters when they begin to sing, the singers are good and the songs are attractive, but the change is very noticeable, specially in the first episodes, I got used to it but it's still distracting at times; the music, as I said, is attractive and it's well done, it's more a taste question because it has a strongly defined style, there's acoustic, there's pop, there's dubstep, there's a bit of rock and that's all, the opening and the ending are also in this range, I like it but I would understand if someone complains about it; the other music, or rather, the score is good, with a group of melodies which are captivating and a good instrumentalization, it accompanies very well the scenes and does it job effectively.
This has been a series with an interesting premise, well executed but with a huge path in front of it, with a great amount of potential that if its well exploited, it will be the born of a classic; this is one of the hidden gems of the season, good at everything but still with a great posibillity of going further on, let's hope to see how will develops it.
Wow, only once in a while does an anime come around with this level of animation, music, and character drama.
I love it when once in a while, japanese creators decide to take a break on the typical anime schtick and actually create something with other cultures in mind.
First of all, i'm still waiting for the dub-something tells me that this anime is going to sound much better when the english speaking people are actually speaking english.
But as a show, wow. Even before I started, the promo artwork alone made me invested.
Story: Is very good, but not the greatest. Having your story transform into
a music contest is not the best direction to go, but it honestly didn't matter much because they kept the character stories going throughout the saga.
art: 10/10 would look again. The 2 main characters are just ADORABLE to look at and everyone else in the show has glowing personalities through just their facial expressions alone. The backgrounds are amazing and really pop to life the futuristic city of mars.
sound:10/10 would listen again. Not big on the music genre, but that didn't stop me from enjoying it.
I kept thinking to myself: "okay, this person is going to sing? that's probably going to be cringey to hear." AND IT NEVER WAS. Every song that came out of the character's mouth and the openings/endings were bangers I could snap my fingers to anyday.
character: Every person had their ark, and it wasn't drawn out too long. I felt the need for everyone to succeed.
enjoyment: Well, I want a second season.. Does that tell you much? I really want to see more of this world, I want to see more of the characters, and I want to hear more of that music.
Do I recommend this to anyone? Yes, yes, absolutely, watch it. What are you doing here reading my review? GO AND WATCH IT ALREADY.
Carole & Tuesday is a musical anime about 2 young and very talented girls meet up by fate.
The story takes place in the future with people living in mars and AIs do almost everything, even making songs.
The art is unique and had its own vibe which I don't see a lot.
Some scenes were breath taking though some frames appeared a little sloppy.
This is what I am talking about, the music and songs there are top notch.
I enjoyed every single one of them as they captured the moment perfectly.
The main characters are solid and distinctive.
Sadly there was too little introductions and background story
to back them up.
Implementing Instagram posts in real life with the anime was phenomenal.
Definitely recommend it as a much watch, this anime has a huge potential and I can't wait to see more of it.
This will probably be the most refreshing anime i had watched in a long while.
For an original anime series, can see they really put in a lot of effort into this series.
Artwork is excellent, with very detailed scenes and yes, the musical instruments as well. Character design was also pretty good, and this is not only for the two main characters but also for the entire cast.
Story was fantastic and incredibly interesting. With a sci-fi setting, the anime portrays how music will be produced in the future with human vs AI in terms of producing music. Two talented musicians who produce their
own music VS a model turned Singer who have a talented producer using AI.
Music and BGM is fantastic. It ties in well with the scene and really sets the mood. Whether it's during the funny, quirky, sad or touching scenes, it's definitely spot on.
Now that the anime is at the mid point, can't wait to see what will happen for the following episodes and what new songs will be out!
Definitely one of the best music anime i had ever watched.
The story takes place in a modernised world with two girls who have a passion for music. What makes this story great is the blending of themes. In particular, the juxtaposition of the wealthy and poor. There will be many contrasting elements that emphasis this, such as the main characters background, the world they live in as well as the antagonist when compared to the protagonist. Through this, the anime really challenges the ideals of the materialism, proving that starting from nothing is not as disadvantageous as having everything.
Furthermore, the story shows a realistic side to the music industry such as the difficulty
of becoming successful in having a music career. This is clearly highlighted when the main characters participate in side jobs to earn a living and parents show disdain to their passion.
Being only in the twelve episode, there are still many uncertain elements but it is clear that their music is slightly lacking in that they always sing in the same style - ethereal sounding, even the judges comment on it when they compare the antgonist when she sung. It is clear to me though, that the songs do get better as seen in episode 12 but there is not enough information and this may be the intended purpose of the producers, showing that it is very hard to be the top of the top despite having amazing talents. (the girls are learning and getting better)
There is only one real down side to the story thus far. Although they juxtaposed the goods and the bads, the hardships are clearly toned down alot, making it feel like they are going through these struggles as if a light breeze has pressed on them.
If you have not watched the anime, I still heavily recommend it. I would argue that it is a gem compared to the other animes in this season and deserve a slightly higher rating.
Carole and Tuesday, is, first and foremost, a Pretty Good show. The plot is cookie cutter, sure, but the music is incredible and the characters are pretty fun and interesting and the animation ranges from serviceable to excellent. It's also really neat how much representation there is in the show, from a black protagonist to various lgbt/poc side characters. You don't see that a lot in anime.
Now it's time for the the However.
There is a little bit of a transphobia problem in this show, specifically how they portray one of the character's, Angela's, mother/manager, Dahlia, a character heavily implied to be a transgender woman. The
way she's portrayed is just kinda... yikes. She's shown to have anger issues and to be very mannish, and there's a scene where Angela is thinking about her and it pans to a picture of the two of them before Dahlia transitioned and it's framed as if things were better back then. There's also this group called the mermaid sisters which I think are supposed to be kind of androgynous but they're just dudes with facial hair and lolita outfits swearing. I don't care how fucking funny that song was, you can't turn an entire identity into a joke. I really enjoy a lot of the aspects of this show, especially the relationships of the characters, but I don't feel like I can recommend it to my trans friends because they would be rightfully upset by that sort of bullshit.
Anyway im giving it a 7/10 which for me basically means "it's good but it's not perfect and im mad about it."
