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 anime passes the first criterion in episode 2, the second in episode 8, and the third in episode 9. The conversations are not frequent or non-trivial though.

Honestly, this show was pig-disgusting. The anti-science messages made my blood boil. ‘Natural is best’ my ass. Fuck. Haven’t been this angry at an anime in a long time. Obviously this never scored high on the Bechdel test, there weren’t many females and up until the stupid ending, none of the females were even important. If that’s what you’re gonna make your female characters do, then just don’t bother having female characters Japan.

This anime passes the first two criteria in episode 2 and the third in episode 11. 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?

As good as this show was, the females were never fully developed. Plenty of them were badass, but they were mostly isolated. Their meetings were few and far in between, which is a pity. It didn’t have to be this way. To be honest, one of the Elric brothers could have easily been a sister as well. Not like their voice actors weren’t female already…

Apparently women are just so unimportant in the lives of these guys… This was written by a woman too.

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

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

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

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…
