I was discussing this topic a few days ago with several people and was wondering what you gals think. Is there an anime/manga character that you look up to? If so, why do you look up to them, and what do you feel makes a good role model? Please don`t use the 'I like so and so because they`re hot/cute' line. I`d like to look a little deeper than that in to the topic.

Personally, I don`t have a favorite yet. There are a lot of characters that I like and idolize for one reason or another, but none that stick out to me overall. I will say that I favor characters that are able to ponder their way through seemingly impossible situations. I really admire their cleverness and ability to think outside the box.

A good role model to me is anyone that is able to put others before themselves or make hard decisions, not because its 'the right thing to do' or because they are trying to impress anyone, but because they are decent human (and sometimes not quite human) beings and generally care about how their choices might affect the well being of other people, particularly those they care for.

There are a lot that are good role models, I just can't think of many right now.
Generally characters I consider are good role models are typically like me, but more mature.

I really enjoy looking up to otaku females in anime, like Saori and Konata, as weeb-y as that sounds. There just isn't a whole lot of people like otaku represented in other media, so seeing these time of women in anime always make me feel special, and not alone!
