Representation and Diversity in Animation

Hello my friends! I’m doing a survey for my  in which I’m researching creation of well developed diverse characters and the lack of representation certain kinds of characters have in popular media. If it’s not too much trouble could you answer a few questions for me? <3

If you write cute long tags when you reblog things, you are adorable and I read all of them <3.

Thank you for your responses guys, you are so nice ;__;!
Also if anyone else still has any suggestions on animation with good female leads and diversity in the character cast, feel free to send them through :D.

Ooooh, thank you! Never even heard of this anime before, it sounds like it has a lot of good things going on. Thanks :D :D

cuhelski said: easy picks but for shows: adventure time & bee and puppy cat For film: ghibli has your back

Yessss they are so good, I love them all. Thank you :D

fauxboy said: Teen Titans, Avatar:the last airbender, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, most ghibli films esp Spirited Away and Nausiccaa

Oooh, I forgot about Teen Titans, I should look into that again. Thank you! :D

enchanted-chaos said: Slayers - female main character is the most dangerous sorceress ever. The dumb blonde is a male.

Slayers, got it. I shall check it out. Thank you my dear <3 

o-zabethy said: This depends— what kind of animation are you looking for?

Well, I’m looking for anything people can suggest honestly XD. I’m just doing research into some good examples of diverse character casts with good representation of different kinds of people and well-developed girl main characters. I’m MAINLY focusing on tv animated shows, but I’m looking at feature length animation and (sometimes) shorts as well.

Can anyone recommend me some good animated tv shows/films with well-developed girl characters and diverse casts? <3

Watched some student work from Gobelins. It’s a combination of raw powerful inspiration and I LOVE ALL OF IT. And then lie down on the floor and cry that I’ll never be good enough. 

There are all these super cute animation projects happening online that I could be trying to participate in but.. uni.. I need to be doing work for uni… This is so hard!!!

Dalmatians were a very very very big thing for me when I was little in case you can&#8217;t tell. My secret alter-ego was a dalmatian superhero :D (hmm I&#8217;m going to draw that soon I think).I felt like I fulfilled my childhood dream in a way haha.

Mixture of feeling burnt-out and tired of university forever aaaand not wanting it to stop because that would mean facing the real world again. Why can’t I just lie down on the floor for a few years.
