Positive Role Models
Sherlock is an abrasive yet skilled detective. She moves through the world with very little care for personal space or feelings. Her skillfulness oftentimes excuses her behavior to some people. Wato is the opposite -- a thoughtful doctor, she approaches situations with more sensitivity.
The Japanese show has flawed and complex female leads.
