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…
- Are there two named female characters?
- Who have a conversation?
- Not about men?
- Does this happen frequently?
- 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.
