So, Wonder Woman has been insanely successful. It had some cool stuff going on but was not my favorite movie. I had several problems with it, mostly happening after Diana leaves Themyscira. But I'm going to put most of them aside to talk about why Wonder Woman was actually an anime, despite being live action, full of white people, and made by 'Merica.

I'm working on the assumption that you've seen anime before in a quantity sufficient to familiarize yourself with its tropes, so I'm not going to go into detail about why these are tropes and how long they've been around. Also going to assume you've seen Wonder Woman and not going to worry about whether I'm spoiling anything for you.

This gets a mad face because if it was a guy walking in on a girl it would be super rapey (looking at you Dishonored) and never fly for comedy, which is what this was played for.
But it does check the block for bath scenes, which are often just as problematic in animes and just as often played for comedy as well as fanservice.

And I don't hate the movie. I loved Themyscira, and I felt like the movie tried to highlight the diversity of the allied forces that typically gets glossed over. But those elements aren't strong enough to carry it for me. But I'm glad it's doing so well, because it means we'll get the chance for even better movies in the future.
