The Essence of an Empowering Character

With the Best Girl 2017 contest raging on, I thought I’d enlighten the heathens who failed to vote Shirayuki beyond the first round.

Shirayuki and everyone in Akagami no Shirayuki-hime are all characters empowered by each other in positive directions, with characterization that occurs over the proper amount of time instead of having the idea punched through their skulls by your typical shounen protagonists.
