Because Halloween is tomorrow, I thought it would be a good idea to include something spooky in this post. So enjoy the header image for this article, because it has just as much to do with this post as the post does to Halloween, namely nothing. Instead I am going to get my question from a conversation I had a couple weeks back in the AniTAY chatroom: Is there an anime plot out there that you have not yet seen that you would like to and what is it?

My answer delves into some genre subversion, but yours doesn’t need to. Who knows, maybe your answer does exist and someone here at AniTAY can point you in the direction of your longed for desire.

There are a lot of magical girls anime out there, but I don’t know of one that follows this particular plot line. Imagin that your, let’s say, middle school aged magical girls have succeeded in defeating the big bad that is threatening the world and therefore go into retirement and move on with their lives. But come 20 or so years down the line a new big bad shows up and the 3-4 now 30-something year-old ladies need to once again transform into their surprisingly revealing outfits to battle evil. All the while trying to manage their husbands, kids and work. I just think this could just turn into a lot of over the top and ridiculous fun. So what do you think?

Last week’s question:

If you have any ideas for future questions of the week feel free to leave them in the comments, otherwise, see you next Friday.
