Although some people think of skimpily clad women, like those in rio rainbow gate, when they think of Japanese animation, there are actually quite a few strong female characters as well. It's possible to find any number of potential role models for young girls. You just have to choose the right show when you opt to watch anime
While the main character of this anime series is male, this doesn't mean there aren't female role models in the show. One of the best is Hinata, who's a female ninja who was successful and remained good even in the face of adversity.
Studio Ghibli Films
This studio is known for producing anime with strong female characters. These include Sophie Hatter from Howl's Moving Castle, who tries to help everyone she meets and discovers magical abilities in the process, San from Princess Mononoke, who uses her anger to help bring about change rather than letting it destroy her, and Chihiro Ogino from Spirited Away, who goes from a somewhat bratty little girl to a brave person who helps save her parents.
Lieutenant Riza Hawkeye is one of the most accurate shots among the soldiers on this show, making it so she can hold her own even in a field that's dominated by men. She's willing to stand up for what's right, even if it means speaking up to her superiors.
Although she's very girly, this doesn't mean that Usagi can't be an evil-fighting superhero. She's scared at first but then develops into a braver and more confident
version of herself while still being just as girly.
Ghost in the Shell
The cyborg Major Motoko Kusanagi in Ghost in a Shell is a smart and strong hacker who helps protect the citizens of Public Security Section 9 as part of her role as a field commander of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission.
