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.

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  and 2 in episode 12. The conversations are always about men, not frequent and non-trivial though.

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.

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.

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

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

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