Vatican Kiseki Chousakan (Vatican Miracle Examiner)

Category E

186763l

This anime passes criterion 1 in episode 4 and that’s it. None of the females ever talk.

  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?

To be fair, the Vatican really doesn’t have much to do with women, but to also be fair, these guys don’t spend much time in Vatican. They do visit plenty of churches though. Either way, this is pretty much a fail, despite being written by a woman. I guess that’s what happens when a show sells itself through hints of BL. Slightly disappointed, but it’s not unexpected. Religion was never the most progressive…

This is actually a very interesting case for my purposes. Albus seems to be a boy for most of the series and as long as that’s the case her conversations with Zero are plentiful and significant. As soon as Albus is revealed to be a girl however, he doesn’t have a single proper conversation with Zero. This seems pretty frightening.

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.

  3. Not about men?

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 passed the first criterion in episode 2.

  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?

For a feel good slice of life story this sure didn’t do a good job of letting the females interact with each other…

This show managed to at least have two named female characters by episode 3, but that’s about it.

  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?

To be fair, there aren’t many female characters here…

Kaiji – Seasons 1 and 2

Kaiji only passes the first criterion in episode 36 (that’s second season).

  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?

I was so surprised this show actually managed to get a second named female character! I swear due to some unspecified disaster this world is left with the majority of the population being male and no one ever mentions this traumatic tragedy… Of course said named character looks like this:
