There are now two NWSL teams withing reasonable distance of me, and I’ve shamefully seen neither of them just yet. Hoping to correct that next month. Also I wish the sponsor on the Angel City shirts was not DoorDash because fuck those companies.
This episode, we’re talking about Ken Koyama’s Little Miss P published by Yen Press and Tsubasa Yamaguchi’s Blue Period published by Kodansha.

The song you heard in the episode was “EVERBLUE” by Omoinotake from the Blue Period anime.
As always, you can find me on Twitter @ImpassionateK, and my co-hosts Helen (@WanderinDreamr) and Apryll (@manjiorin) on Twitter at those places in the parenthesis. You can find both of their writing at The Organization of Anti-Social Geniuses, more of Helen’s writing at Narrative Investigations, and my writing at the Fandom Post and Awko Tako.
Read Helen’s review of volumes 1 and 2 of Blue Period over at The OASG.
Here’s a couple articles from The Athletic that I was talking about on the podcast:
- What’s it like to play football on your period? by Katie Whyatt
- Dawn Scott aims to minimise adverse impact of menstrual cycle on Lionesses by Katie Whyatt
- Lucy Bronze: ‘Some in society see periods as shameful. Sport can change that’ by Adam Crafton
- We need to talk about footballers’ periods. This is about more than just white shorts by Caoimhe O’Neill
- England in talks with Nike over changing white shorts due to period concerns by Charlotte Harpur
As I said on the podcast, The Athletic does require a subscription. But they typically run pretty good deals if you seek them out.
