There is a link in the review to both the anime, which is sold on amazon, and the online translations of the original light novels. I personally prefer the light novels because we get to see inside the main characters head in the anime doesn't allow. And as mentioned in the review, the anime adds two characters who were awkwardly inserted into the plot, and really didn't need to be there. However, I would still highly recommend the anime. It has beautiful animation, wonderfully done music and top notch voice acting. And aside from the aforementioned changes, is very faithful to the source material. Everyone should read the review. It's one of my favourite stories, and I can't emphasize enough how amazing I find it.
I'm also going to see Dickens' Women with Miriam Margolyes tomorrow! I'll give a report the next day, as promised!
I'm a little surprised that I haven't received any attacks for my lady meta on Tumblr, yet. But, I don't post meta on Tumblr often. I've only recently got up the courage to. Plus, I'm nowhere near as well-known as some of the people I follow who've been attacked for their essays defending ladies.
I'm going to participate in the March womenlovefest It's a week long fest dedicated to celebrating and defending unappreciated ladies in fandom. The held a fest last year and people came up with some amazing things! I've claimed Rue and Tsubomi Hanasaki from Heartcatch Precure (I have an absurd amount of love for that show). I'll probably do something for Ahiru too. I'm going to start writing about them very early so I have time for the other things going on that month.

I recently finished watching Heartcatch Precure. It's a cheesy and quirky Magical Girl anime aimed at young girls... but I unironically love it! I love it so, so much.
This series is really an excellent one, overall. It has some great fight scenes and fantastic, well-developed characters with engaging character arcs.

She's secretly proud to have inherited her ancestor's mad drawing skillz, yo.
I have to mention this because OMG, GORGEOUS OFFICIAL ART FOR LEGEND OF KORRA. WE GET TO SEE HER FAAACE.
Look at those shoulders! This is just ... unbelievably amazing. I keep asking myself if this is real life! HNNNG
This is a storyboard for Wicked's Defying Gravity done by Heidi Gilbert, Minkyu Lee, and Jennifer Hager, all artists who work for Disney Feature Animation. Just ... LOOK AT THIS! ISN'T IT AMAZING? As many others have said, animation would be an excellent medium for Wicked. The story is made for animation. I would love to see this movie SO, SO MUCH. YOU HAVE NO IDEA.
