With the exception of a single episode of DBZ, I've never watched any of these.
Yep. This is BS a lot of SJ manga seem to be glued too. Right alongside friendship and fights you seemingly always have to have some girl less than 18 created seemingly only for otaku fapbait. It's so gross. I voted OP for the poll though in the end mostly because I think at least I can think of a few more female characters that have more definition to their characters beyond being attracted one of the series male characters in comparison to the other 3. Bleach is probably a close second due to Steven's point about the diversity of the female characters in the series. Unohana, Yachiru, Rukia, and Yoruichi are some of my favorites design and character wise.
No it did not. TTGL had 2 underaged girls, one specifically designed for jiggle physics and the other had every adult male character faun over her which was really awkward. The other female characters barely had any screentime.
It's still a major part of the franchise, and Kishimoto specifically approves of what goes on with the manga I know that much. When the original manga-ka okays it and it looks like that...yeah that's not good.
For Shonen anime from that period, Gintama would be answer as well.
Black Clover is modern but it actually has really good female characters and kinda surprised me about it. Noelle started out as a basic Tsundere, but she has really gotten alot of great character development and has had some huge moments and victories in fights. Also Mereoleona is the best.
I was thinking about that moment before I made this thread. I would have liked to make a new thread about the biggest animes atm but I don't really know what they are. Maybe my hero, demon slayer, and ???Honestly none of them are super great. They all to varying degrees either sexualize or neglect their female characters from their storylines.
MHA took a singular good step in the right direction with Uchako taking on Bakugo and them having it be an out and out fight, but then it seemed to forget it's female cast existed for the most part and they often just supplement male character journeys. Disclaimer, I haven't read chapters 200~ to current chapter, but that Uchako fight was like chapter 35 or something and we didn't get anything like that since.
The main Shonen Jump series that I feel retreats it's female characters with respect is The Promised Neverland, though I will freely admit that I don't really keep up with most Jump series nowadays. If your looking for a fun Shonen series that doesn't sexualize it's female characters (or for that matter, it's under aged characters), and is fun and creative and smart, TPN delivers on all that. It's effectively the only Shonen I get excited for nowadays.
Robin is one of the most important people in the World, Nami was heavily featured during Whole Cake, Big Mom, Carrot, Pudding, the entire island if Dressrosa was under control thanks to a girl.Bleach pretty easily. The women there actually do shit and have cool moments.
Soi Fon, Yoruichi, Rukia, Nel, are all better characters when it comes to action than pretty much every other woman in the other series.
One piece has characterization but Bleach wins everything else, style of women in action, diversity, amount, etc
I will never stop advocating for Charmy to get her own series spin offFor Shonen anime from that period, Gintama would be answer as well.
Oh okay since it’s been brought up, yeah the answer is Black Clover lol. Noelle doesn’t get left behind in terms of power while also participating in a lot of the fights and getting cool development and this new saga has already guaranteed that she will stay in the spotlight. And beyond her, the female characters in general get to be involved in pretty much all of the action while being some of the coolest and strongest of the series.
As well as Nel who was a cute imouto-like girl you could protect as well as a mid-riff sporting, stacked hottie readers could lust over at the same time!.... :/
Basically, most of the women have agency. They're not props or foils.Yep,

Kishimoto has said that he gave “carte blanche”control over sequel designs to Ikemoto meaning he can draw them however he wants.
