For today’s post, I’d like to focus on Kuttsukiboshi, which I’ll call a steamy lesbian love story, much more explicit than anything you’d find in American or Western media, with no surprise. Personally, I did not like the anime very much and had a lot of problems with it, but I still think a post about it is worthwhile. They spend one scene in a library within the school library during the summer:
The whole scene itself I think is short, only 1-2 minutes long, but it’s still a great part of this anime. It’s a nice and touching romance, despite some problematic elements like sexual assault which is seen as OK (it never is), which makes me cringe, to say the least. There’s nothing else I have to say about this, I really don’t.
