After Nanoha and Madoka, is there anything to be gained from further deconstructions of the magical girl genre?
That predates both, and was more or less played straight, except for the homolust side stories.
>more or less played straight
It was not.
For example: note the difference in transformation stock footage.
Is what way was Nanoha a deconstruction?
Friendship through ultraviolence.
i think the main question should be can anything ever be gained from deconstructions of genres
guess what: you can't
Guys I'm not expert on literature or philosophy but I don't think you're using this word correctly.
I'm going to start saying leitmotif when it's actually just a theme song and you can't do anything to stop me.
From the perspective of the parents? The problems of having a child that constantly runs away and is covered in wounds.
You keep using that word, care explaining what Derrida was trying to say?
You sure about that?
I know he used the wrong word, but what is the precise term for what Nanoha and Madoka did?
Minky Momo is the real deconstruction.
There is no precise term because nanoha and madoka did nothing just another mahou shoujo anime, well maybe nanoha is more /m/ but that's it
Magical girls were barely constructed in the first place. Can you name another genre which consistently takes itself *less* seriously?
Nanoha took a different take on the whole mahou shoujo thing, but in no way it was a deconstruction.
