What appeared to be the best anime of Autumn 2018, turned out to be anything but.
Zombieland Saga is a huge disappointment.
Don't get me wrong, this isn't the worst anime out there. It's just extremely underwhelming, and does not deserve the praise which it got.
Apart from some cute characters, who are only cute some of the time, I can't really praise this anime on anything.
A while ago I came across a review for Lily being the best trans character portrayal in anime. Anyone who knows some of my favourite anime know that I regard Hourou Musuko as pretty much the best anime of all time, and that portrays trans characters in a much better light than Lily. Sure, it's great to have a line along the lines of "who cares what you've got in your pants?" and that be pretty much the end of it. But that's not what our world is like, especially with children, so them glossing over this irritated me slightly.
Don't get me wrong, I loved Lily as a character, and would do anything to protect her smile. But for all intents and purpose, the writers could have left out that she was born male, or just had her be afab and nothing would have changed with the story at all. I guess this is why people think she's the best trans character, just "oh, you were born a guy, great... now back to where we were", but that's not how being trans is, especially at Lily's age.
