When you’re growing up, there always comes a time where you think to yourself “What the hell am I doing with my life?” When you reach that turning point, what do you do? Maybe you should just go “Ahhh, whatever!” like the 4 young women pictured above have.
The wacky anime video channel, Anime Bancho, started an ongoing series chronicling the lives of 4 young women dealing with life in their late ’20s called "Turning Girls". It is a series that pokes fun at notable tropes that are found in Japanese pop culture. From moe to BL to visual-kei, “Turning Girls” looks to remind us how hard it can be to find a balance between being youthful and being a mature adult. Oh, and if you’re a fan of Little Witch Academia, the writer of it is behind this as well.
Want to see how funny this series is? Check out Episode 5 where it features 28-year-old “idol”, Kaeru, and her attempt to live-stream an episode about her daily life….while still living at home with her parents. (Click on CC for English subtitles while the video is played)
Doesn’t this make you humorously wonder about your own life? “Turning Girls” makes you think about what the thought process of an adult is now compared to back then, given the amount of entertainment available to us today.
It’s really hard to be a young adult these days, isn’t it?
"Turning Girls" is highly recommended. If anything, watch it for the fujoshi power!
Also, watch more of Anime Bancho’s material. They really are the “slice of life.”
