With a comment like that from the OP, I'll give us three posts until "No True Scotsman" is applied to a show, questioning the validity of a show as "shonen".

>>144544133
This.

I believe the true definition is really what the intended demographic or audience is (young boys), but, people usually equate it more to the content of a show-- which is more than likely gonna end up mostly being battle manga.

I could be wrong on some of those, but, my point is that this will be an interesting one.

What about Allenby?

On the topic of this thread, do Rain and Allenby count? Rain gets kidnapped a lot though is otherwise competent, but her role is literally support, and while Allenby is competent, she's not very prevalent in the show, and most of the time is going Berserk.

Yeah. Worst of all, Justimon didn't even accomplish shit with it. The only ones who were needed to win the final battle were Saintgalgomon because of the program and Dukemon because he rescued the girl. Sakuyamon and Justimon didn't do shit.

Kuvira would be a better choice in pretty much every respect.

>>144571934
She was pretty much the only one.
>>
>>144572015
Her elf-period makes her into a weak emotional floosey.
>>
>>144572015
I can accept Kuvira. But I contest her being better in every respect. Emotionally yes, but to me Azula better represents the Grace Under Pressure-type of character. Even when she was surprised she used her training or ingenuity to overcome it while maintaining that air of a ruler before her fall into insanity. Kuvira to me never really handled surprises all that well, it always showed how flustered she was. Azula was at least able to hide it better, and was never really taken aback too much. I just finished the series a few days ago, and Azula always came off as way too competent.
>>
>>144572213
That doesn't make her incompetent.

>>144572263
Azula was extremely talented and competent in a martial sense, but she was never entirely sane. She relied heavily on Mai and Ty Lee to handle anything not combat related.
>>
Just finished watching Bleach, and, omitting filler, I don't think a single female character wins a 1v1 fight except for for Rukia downing that Espada, and she basically dies doing that. Rukia jobs all the time, Orihime never did anything, Matsumoto is just a titty monster that the bad guys laugh off, hell Sai Fon gets like one kind-of win at Karakura Town. Nel goes flip mode for half an episode then disappears forever mid-fight, Halibel doesn't even put up a W. Like, I'm not looking for MUH STRONK FEMALES but these are warrior women with high spiritual pressure, and every single one loses always. It's just odd.
>>
>>144571746
She was certainly competent.
