Shokugeki no Souma

Category C

season_2_promotion_poster

This anime passes criterion 1 in episode 1, criterion 2 in episode 2 and criterion 3 in episode 5. The conversations are not frequent or non-trivial though.

  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?

While rife with female fan service that could be considered quite over the top, this show balances it out by putting males in the same situations albeit a bit less frequently. Clothes exploding everywhere. Very fun series overall, but it centres on Souma enough that the females don’t really talk to each other much, just him. Did make me want to cook more though.

This anime passes criterion 1 in episode 1 and that’s it. None of the females ever talk.

What else could you expect from a show bursting with muscles? I’m surprised they even named two female characters. Hilarious.

This anime passes criterion 1 in episode 2, but that’s about it.  No females actually talk.

  5. Is the conversation non-trivial?

Somewhat expected from a ‘manly’ show about ‘manly’ times, but still kind of disappointing. Some of the women were even a part of the action, but…

This anime passes criterion 1 in episode 1, criterion 2 in episode 2 and criterion 3 in episode 4. The conversations are not frequent or non-trivial though.

  1. Are there two named female characters?
  2. Who have a conversation?

  4. Does this happen frequently?
  5. Is the conversation non-trivial?

Kuzu no Honkai boasts a majority in the female protagonist department and yet they still don’t manage to talk frequently about non-trivial topics. Despite two of them being in a weird, kind of lesbian relationship… Overall fairly enjoyable though.

I suppose this show is a bit better with females than Reborn (same mangaka), but still not great. In general, the show was also not great. Oh well…

This show was great. I mean who doesn’t love bread? Despite having serious and important female characters though, female-female interactions just aren’t a thing. The women are all separate. Such a pity.

Wasn’t really expecting to see many females in a school rugby show, but as usual the manager is a school-girl. Just why Japan? Why do you have your school-girls wash clothes and towels for the male sports teams??? Either way, she almost never talks to any other girls and when she does it’s all about the boys on the team.
