Benio’s aptitude for martial arts, her strong will, and her dedication to her friends is what made her such an icon in the original manga, and inspired a successful run for the TV adaptation. Today, titles like Wonder Woman and Lady Bird and even other anime such as Mary and the Witch’s Flower and Napping Princess have carried the torch with themes of female empowerment.
