With every episode of Season 3 of Wynonna Earp, my elevator pitch for the show of "it's Supernatural but with gays and women that don't die immediately" has never felt so on the nose.

All in Good Storytime 📚 Episode 47


All in Good Storytime is an interactive, bookish, book club podcast hosted by Alanna, Katya, and Tia. To join the club, make sure you're following us on Twitter to get updates on what book we're reading and to what chapter we are reading through (or what anime we're watching and what episode we are watching through), and listen to the podcast here or on iTunes (see link below) to join in on the discussion. And don't forget to read along!

In the 47th episode of All in Good Storytime, we watch episodes 31-36 of Revolutionary Girl Utena. In these episodes, Nanami and Touga's biological relationship is called into question. Nanami runs away from home and moves in with Akio, Utena, and Anthy where she sees more of them than she bargained for. Despite the cringe-worthy age gap, Utena and Akio's romantic relationship continues. Finally, Utena walks in on Anthy and Akio having a less than sibling-appropriate moment together.

We dissect Touga and Nanami's perpetually weird relationship. We learn that Nanami isn't truly interested in a romantic relationship with Touga. Touga relentlessly toys with Nanami when she is under the impression that they are not biologically related and she ultimately rejects him when she makes a move on her. We make parallels between Dennis from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and Touga when he falls for Utena and starts remembering feelings. We realize that Akio's other job aside from working at the school is working as an uber driver. We end by questioning whether or not Utena will run away from her newfound discovery about Anthy and Akio like Nanami did, or if she really meant it when she told Anthy that she would protect her from anything.

In two weeks, we will be watching episodes 37-39 of Revolutionary Girl Utena.
