Okay here’s the thing: We’ve been given two female characters by Kyoani, but they’re not just there to be cute girls. They’re there for the plot.

Ama-chan: We knew the club would need an advisor of sorts as soon as we found out it was a high school team. Ama’s likely going to be in and out a bit, but the plot won’t really be focused around her, except maybe for a special “Ama themed episode”. Plus, judging by her character art, she seems like she’ll me more the matronly type, and even if it’s revealed she was a swimmer in the past, I feel like they won’t over sexualize any flashbacks of her since she’s a teacher and that would be rather disrespectful.

Mou: Yes she is Rin’s sister, and she goes to the same school as the other boys. This is probably a way to keep having Rin show up at Iwatobi, AND provide the swim team a means of finding out what happened to him. It’s even stated in her profile she always worries about him. Even if she does become a romantic interest for someone, she has a much more important purpose to the series due to being Rin’s sister. 

All in all, I’d be hard pressed to find a different combination of female characters I liked the look of at first glance better then these two. Neither of them is simply there as boobies service, and they both look like they’ll be contributing to the plot and character development.
