Strong independent female characters who aren't sexualized and don't need a man to save them during anime/manga?

Male
- Characters that aren't focused on female characters bodies, rather the person and personality.
- Older (+20 so far I've only seen maybe a few anime outside of their teens)
- Are balanced strength-wise or are more skill-based.
- Non-aggressive or territorial (non-alpha if prefer to use labels).
- More emotion or intellect centered instead of strength or ego.
- When under attack pays attention to that instead of the female character that may have a revealing outfit next to him.
- Actually tries to setup harem/love interests up with others that would possibly be better for them.
- Yaoi/Bi possibilities, not that it has to per se be pursued, in a non-service way aka actual romantic development.
- Hard to put the last one in words so instead will just go with: more Hikigaya Hachiman.

Female
- Leads, actual main character not sub-character.
- Comfortable with her body being shown or more of a 'yh, so' type (ie Revy from Black Lagoon, Motoko 'The Major' Kusanagi from GitS, or Saber from FSN-Deen), though would need to add sub-bullet of 'not so that one can add more fanservice' but because some women don't completely collapse mentally just cause someone sees them.
- Properly balanced between 'girly-girl' and 'just one of the guys'.
- Surpasses the male lead in a persistent way (for instance: a scholar student shouldn't lose in a battle of intellect against an average person just because he happens to a) be the MC and b) happens to be male)
- Isn't subject to swooning like a schoolgirl with a crush.
- Yuri/Bi possibilities, not that it has to be per se pursued, in a non-service way aka actual romantic development.

Sure, there's more but meh tired atm so will leave it here.

A male lead character that doesn't have moments with every single female character and give them all false hope, and can actually make up his mind and pick one.

Decisive female characters who do not depend on their love interests to make or break her day.

Women older than 20 that are happy they are single and have careers.

High school boys who aren't sex-starved idiots.

Fathers who actually know and care what their kids are doing and actually help out around the house.
