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.

It’s kind of laughable when a show only passes in episode 46. Like what are you doing? Still don’t understand go though.

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.

This anime passes criterion 1 in episode 3 and criteria 2 and 3 in episode 20. The conversations are not frequent or non-trivial though.

This was not a show containing many females and the ones that did show up were either subservient to a man or vapid and wrong. No wonder then that it did not do too well on the female – female interaction.

This anime passed criterion 1 in episode 1 and criteria 2 and 3 in episode 2. The conversations never really got frequent or deep though.

  5. Is the conversation non-trivial?

Despite the main character being female, she doesn’t talk to other females all that much. Disappointing.
