Gankutsuou (The Count of Monte Cristo)

Category C


This anime passed criteria 1 and 2 in the second episode and 3 in episode 7 or 8 depending on how strictly you define a conversation. This definitely doesn’t happen frequently and the conversations are mostly about shopping…

  1. Are there two named female characters?
  2. Who have a conversation?
  3. Not about men?
  4. Does this happen frequently?
  5. Is the conversation non-trivial?

This was somewhat disappointing as the show had multiple fairly well developed female characters. It’s sloppy to not show any interactions between them that don’t revolve around men.

More data:

Author gender: male
No. of female protagonists/all protagonists: 0/3
Year of airing: 2004-2005
