I read a lot of #shoujo #manga. I've stopped reading ones with unsupportive relationships like Ao Haru Ride. I get that people's lives aren't all full of supportive friends and baes, but if there's manga with great healthy relationships—Robico's “Our Precious Conversations” I love, Horimiya manga is fire, you know I love love love “Just Because!” anime (on Prime, not shoujo though but have to mention it in thread about well-adjusted characters)—that's what I'm gonna read.
‘Fanservice—gratuitous framing of characters in a sexualizing/objectifying manner—exists, as the name implies, to titillate the audience. At its worst, it’s massively obtrusive, basically stepping between a work and the audience, so that it can point at a character and say “This character doesn’t matter. They’re not a person worth caring about, just body parts.”’
