June media round up

What I read in June 2021

The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America by Thomas King

Informative in a defacto, kind of spicy/sharp way. I appreciated the upfront context about language/terminology/labels differ a lot based on who you're talking to.

Princess Jellyfish (vol.1) by Akiko Higashimura

Feels super shoujo right now but I'm sure we're going to get to something deeper later on. The gals are so weird but I appreciate them. I hope that they get to keep it weird as the series goes on (as in, they don't just become princess-fied).

Blue Period vol. 2 by Tsubasa Yamaguchi

I'm getting 2nd-hand art school education through this book! The part where he tells his mom about art school (and his observations about the mom) made me cryyyyyyyyyyyy! I really like the introspection (and sometimes intensity?) that all of these characters have, very relatable. Nice to see a character have their own a-ha moments and developing emotional maturity.

Realized that both Princess Jellyfish and Blue Period have "boy/male" characters dressing up in "girl/female' clothing.
