Every once in a while I see these two team up and it’s great. I want them to be best friends in a little-girl-slumber-party-friends kind of way. They would bond over things like crushes and hyphenated names.
For Musilin: Call Her Fatimah, photographer Giulia Marchi traces the experience of modern Chinese Muslim women through 22-year-old Ding Lan, one of the many young people studying at Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt. Mostly in their early twenties, Ding Lan, whose Muslim name is Fatimah, and her peers make the journey from their hometowns throughout the provinces Gansu, Qinghai, Ningxia, and Henan in hopes of building a deeper understanding of their cultural history outside of China, where they make up the minority population. At the university, students study the Koran and Islamic law while learning to read and write in Arabic.
People who think PMMM is the only series where magical girls suffer. Every single magical girl anime has girls suffering in it and yes, they are major themes in them. Don’t get me started on Sailor Moon. Seriously. Every season/arc, the main characters suffer horrifically. Hell, one of the characters’ defining feature is her loneliness and how awful it must be for her (Sailor Pluto). Also, Hotaru. Even cute series like CCS has characters suffering in it. What makes PMMM stand out so much here?
