Wise Women

Anime features many treatments of the Wise Woman archetype. Many Wise Women are Demi-Goddesses: Examples: Enma Ai from Jigoku Shoujo; Vanilla from Galaxy Angel; (arguably) both Kyouka and Gekka from Kyouran Kazoku Nikki; Many Wise Women are Sybils and Clairvoyants: Examples: Yin from Darker Than Black; Hinoto from X/1999; Felli from Chrome Shelled Regios; Many Wise Women have a Childlike Emotional Aspect: Examples: Lain from Serial Experiments Lain; (arguably) Robin from Witch Hunter Robin; Kyouka-sama from Kyouran Kazoku Nikki; Some Wise Women are Superheroic: Examples: Miyu from Vampire Princess Miyu; Ruri Hoshino from Nadeisco; Felli from Chrome Shelled Regios; Yuki from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya; Some Wise Women are Queens and Commanders: Teletha from Full Metal Panic; Some Wise Women are Mysterious or Amnesiac Femmes Fatales: Examples: Miharu from Gasaraki; A few Wise Women are Childish Gadgeteers: Examples: Ed from Cowboy Bebop; Shishidou Sakura from Sora Wa Kakeru Shoujo; Note that just being a witch does not make a character a wise woman: Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Service did NOT know much; Arisu from Magical Girl Squad Arisu did NOT know much; (arguably) Robin from Witch Hunter Robin did not know enough; Note that just being a goddess does not make a character a wise woman: (In the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) Yuki is clearly a wise woman, and Haruhi is clearly ignorant;

A shame. This club deserves more members. I'd like to see a list of wise female characters.

Kino is a very wise woman as I see it, the whole Anime (Kino no tabi) is about how she became a wise woman ;)

And of course I agree: Wisdom is hot! ;D

Well, the meaning of that word is relative... To me, it means: mature, intelligent, prudent and empathetic. And that means you should add Kirijo Mitsuru from the Persona 3 manga, C.C. and Marianne from Code Geass, Miria from Claymore, Maria from Hayate no Gotoku, Fujioka Haruhi from Ouran Host Club (can't believe she is not here xD) and Magno Vivian from Vandread. But, obviously, the wisdom woman per excellence is Ichihara Yuuko... She defines wisdom.
And, hell yeah: Wisdom is HOT!

"Wisdom is hot."

And emotionless girls appeal to something deep within men who long for wisdom.

MAI-Hime has a couple of contenders for Wise Women...

Kikukawa Yukino might be the strongest contender.
