I'll put this as plainly as I can. Rurouni Kenshin's Sanosuke Sagara has always been one of my favorite characters in anime to date. What I'm curious about is this. Are there any anime out there, shonen or not, where there's a female with the personality and fighting spirit that Sanosuke has? Someone with spunk (not the slang meaning), defiance, ready to fight at the drop of a hat, but for the right reasons? But, preferably not as "simple-minded."

I'm a little out of water having no seen Rurouni Kenshin, but others might be able to say if I'm on or off the mark:

How about Balsa from Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit? She's a complex and tough female protagonist, and an extremely skilled fighter, but with a very fixed moral compass due to a shrouded past she's struggling to redeem.

And said past gets a fantastic flashback arc later on in the series.

I can't speak to how her personality might compare though, I could be wildly off base bringing this up.

... Maybe should've gone in the Recommend Me an Anime thread, but eh. With that description, I'm thinking characters like...

Engi Threepiece, from Yumekui Merry
Emi Yusa, from Hataraku Maou-sama!

Both of these have anime adaptations to them. Yusa and Engi are pretty noble characters who aren't afraid to speak their mind and take matters into their own hands. Engi has the tendency to let her anger take over her at times, though I can't really speak to what happens in the anime.

I've actually seen Moribito. Loved it.

Will have to check that out. Finally something that sounds remotely like what I'm looking for. Also, what would be the clone's name?

Hi. I've closed this because individual personal help/advice threads are against CR's rules. However we do have a special thread just for requesting recommendations, so if you are still looking for suggestions, pleas ask in Recommend Me an Anime.

(Also, to reply to more than post, use the checkmark next to "Quote" in each post you want to reply and click "Quote Selected" at the bottom of the page. That allows you to reply to several responses in the post, so you can avoid "double-posting" (which is discouraged).
