Anime for the Girls! (AKA "Female Gaze") <3

One of the biggest critiques of anime as a medium is that it feels that there is a limited space for girls, shows/characters that cater to us. It's easy to say "WHAT ABOUT SHOUJO" but you know that's not everyone's cup of tea. Really puts it into perspective when you see that there are only like, 100 josei anime listed on this site.

So, here's my take on the "Female Gaze" anime trend. Some of my criteria includes:

-Written by a woman
-Well written female characters, of course!
-Attractive men AND women (causes there's girls who like both!)
-Engaging romance and action


(might have to make a part 2!)
