Deconstructing the Culture: Hinata and the Value of Traditional Value Themes
This was one of my favorite big pieces and the first of 2018. I'm going to be honest, it was a bit weird for me because it centered on such a flippant topic. That said, in a story that I have been following since around 2005, I discovered that two of my favorite characters demonstrated a great example of traditional marriage values hidden in popular media.

For anyone who happens to be a fan of anime, great. You'll really enjoy this. For everyone else, you'll see an explanation of many tenets of social conservatism in a Just for Fun setting.
