Given all the recent panfandom discussion about misogyny, Mary Sues, and female characters, I thought we could have a meta thread this week about the female characters of Hikago.

Although Hikago is dominated by male characters, we do see quite a few female characters in the series, and there have been a small smattering of fics that have attempted to develop and create backstory for these characters.

First a poll:
Poll #3133 Female characters in Hikago!
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 30


Who is your favorite female character in the series?

Ichikawa Harumi

* Although Oka is actually a male character, several people in the fandom have written the character as female, which is why the name is included on the list.

Reply in the comments about why you like these characters! Link to favorite fics that feature them! Think of potential fic ideas featuring these characters!

Thoughtful discussion about why you don't like the way a particular character is written will be allowed, but please, no character bashing.

(Plans for community activity in the future, just so you all know what to expect: we will alternate between commentfic(/art/icon/FST/etc.) fests and meta threads every Friday. Next Friday will see the return of the team competition, Hokuto Cup style! Feel free to start recruiting for your teams in advance...)

The original Hikaru no Go anime is currently back on the air in Japan on TXN (the TV Tokyo Network) on Monday nights, beginning this week.

Here’s hoping that with the republication of the manga and rebroadcasting of the anime, enough interest is generated to make it worthwhile for someone to finish the Hokuto Cup story arc that just started before the anime was canceled.

And may I add here another gentle reminder to vote in the Hikago Open Beta Celebration interest poll. It's fast! It's easy! And anyone can do it (with an OpenID)! Thanks!

[profile] readerofasaph and [personal profile] ladyseishou suggested that we hold an open beta celebration, starting on April 30, to help launch this community off the ground. Here's a list of various ideas for community activities that were proposed by people in comments to my previous post:

Open Beta Celebration )


Now for the polls! We'll choose the top five activities from the poll results and put up sign-up posts for volunteers to help run those activities. (Answering the second question in the poll doesn't commit you to being a volunteer, but it does help us get a sense for how much work is involved.)
