    Ryoushi needs my help!

    I think everyone has a bit of a different definition of "manly". Ryoushi isn’t a character that, right away, strikes you as manly. The kid has a fear of people looking at him, and he is shown multiple times through the show as a recurring gag that he isn't afraid to show this fear, going so far as to curl up in to the fetal position.
    However, there are many times through this show that he overcomes this fear to help the girl he loves, and he treats her fairly even when she denies him. He doesn't press, doesn't try to force anything and does all he can to help her without being weird or creepy about it like a lot of anime out there. And when the time comes, the kid can man up.
    He goes from running gag to The Hunter when the situation calls for it, and his reactions and treatment of Okami makes him very "manly" in my eyes.

    He has no hesitation in defending her, overcomes his own fears and he does what it takes to help her out and support her when she needs it.
