10:30am Evolution of Magical Girls – G Panel Room 4
This panel will explain the in’s and out’s of what makes a magical girl a magical girl! I will be explaining the roots of magical girls, from their first inspirations to their development over time. I will begin with the three main types: witches, magical idols, and the most common “battle”/warrior magical girls, in which we as Americans consider to be true magical girls. From there, I will explain deconstructive magical girl series, which are much darker than the traditional series, such as Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Onward from such, I will touch upon the timeline, from the first magical girl, Sally the Witch, and explain the steps that magical girl media has taken over the years. I will also briefly touch upon the influences that Japanese magical girls has on the rest of the world, such as the Italian show “Winx Club” and the American cartoon “Star Vs The Forces of Evil”.
