One of the perhaps
surprising things about Japanese anime is...?
(A): They often contain
a radical feminist anti-pornography message. Shun Kisaragi, pictured above, is
a female superhero who fights pimps and "glamor photographers".
(B): They often feature
transgendered characters and unusual gender portrayals. For example, Shun Kisaragi,
above, is a man.
(C): The characters often
parody real-life historical political figures. For example, Shun Kisaragi, above,
represents Margaret Thatcher.
