Hikaru no Go

Category C

hikaru-no-go-full-51049

This anime passes criterion 1 in episode 1 and criteria 2 and 3 in episode 46. 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?

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

  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.

This anime passes criterion 1 in episode 1 and criteria 2 and 3 in episode 2. The conversations are both frequent and non-trivial.

  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?

Obviously it’s easier for a show with a female protagonist to meet these criteria, so it’s no wonder that this show does it so quickly. There could be some debate about Oscar’s femaleness since she clearly doesn’t present as a female, but the show will pass a bit later on regardless. Nice to see a mostly progressive show from the 70s/80s.

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…

Even though the mangaka is female, the focus here is entirely on the guys…
