So hey, look what I just discovered, a superhero cartoon, made in the United Arab Emirates and set in Dubai, with a teenager girl as a protagonist, called Emara: Emirates Heroe.

And it actually looks very cool, embracing both western and japanese concepts and styles, while remaining distinctly arab thanks to the setting and costumes, and I gotta say, that’s a damn fine clever integration of the hijab as part of her costume.

As a man both interested in cartoons and islamic culture, this is quite the fascinating little show, specially since these types of media are so rare from that part of the world. 

oh my gosh this is adorable. and the animation style is smooth and charming, too. i love the oil pastel looking backgrounds.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
