Meta about meta

Because I'm aware that a new Buffy comic came out today and that it's contentious and I don't want to get mired down in the whatever, consider this a blanket ban on comic mentions in the comments to this post. I don't know how it could be related, but I'm playing it safe. Don't mention the comics.

elisi had a post about Mark Watches Buffy and, you know, watching Buffy.

Some of the comments to her post get into the analysis aspect of Buffy fandom and how Buffy, as a show, is ripe for it due to metaphors and such.

It made me think, as things often do. Buffy isn't actually what got me into the mindset of dissecting media for happy funtimes. I cut my teeth on an anime, Revolutionary Girl Utena (which you guys have probably seen me refer to before).

Navel-gazing about Utena, Buffy, and meta!Collapse )
