“There’s a harem anime called Hajimete no Gal (also known in English as My First Girlfriend Is a Gal) that recently came under the critical eye of fans after one particular episode decided to get preachy and virtue signal about the way women are treated in erotic visual and light novels. The show is filled to the brim with fan-service and sex gags, which is why it stood out in particular when the English version of the anime decided to put third-wave feminist talking points into an episode.”
