Added DiffLines:

* Many of the Franchise/{{Barbie}} DirectToVideo movies border on this. Although they are usually adaptations of fairy tales with female protagonists, many of the villains and secondary characters end up female as well.

* Justified in ''Manga/SeitokaiYakuindomo'' with Ousai Academy, which just switched over to being co-ed, meaning that only 28 of the 552 students are male.

Added DiffLines:

* The genderflip AU in ''Comicbook/StarTrekIDW''. It's established that this universe's Starfleet is vaguely sexist (and not ironically reversed sexism, but the regular kind) and some in Command have doubts about Jane T. Kirk's captaincy based on this. And yet somehow it's worked out that the whole command crew is female except Nnamdi Uhuro and Jason Rand.

* ''Anime/SakuraQuest'' follows in the footsteps of its [[Anime/{{Shirobako}} predecessor by featuring a main cast of five females but an equal number of male to female characters in the series. Unlike ''Shirobako'', however, the girls aren't working in an industry that's heavily male-dominated in real life, being basically publicity actors and PR workers for a tourism board, which in RealLife tend toward hiring young, attractive women for those positions, therefore successfully {{avert|edTrope}}ing this trope.

* While ''Anime/{{Shirobako}}'' has a decent number of male characters, all of the protagonists are women working in the anime industry, alongside many other women, mostly doing art or administration. In real life, anime production unfortunately still has an improbably ''male'' cast, except for voice actors. The main characters also formed a coincidentally all-female animation club in high school.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Justified|Trope}} in ''Manga/UraraMeirocho''; since only women have the power to become diviners and only diviners can live in Meirocho, the resident population of Meirocho consists entirely of girls and women. Played straight, however, in the portrayals of visitors as few men are seen among them.

* ''VideoGame/SakuraDungeon'', though it'd be just as truthful to say that the game has an [[CastFullOfGay Improbably Lesbian Cast]].

* Almost all characters in ''Literature/MyVampireOlderSisterAndZombieLittleSister'' are female, the only major exception being the main character Satori. In the case of the non-human characters, all of the major ones are female, the only males being {{Mooks}} and/or off-screen.

* Every character with a "speaking role" (although nearly every episode is voiced entirely by Wren) in Spines is either female or nonbinary (in the case of Shan). Overlaps with EveryoneIsBi and EveryoneIsGay: when characters relationships are referenced, only one is heterosexual. [[spoiler:And the fruit of that relationship leads to mass slaughter and possibly the end of the world.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/YuruYuri'' exaggerates this to the point where even among ''background characters'' there are no visible male characters, even in places where they should logically be (one chapter takes place in Comiket, for example).
