Women that look too perfect to the point of appearing unnatural, like a doll. Potentially invoking levels of adoration or the uncanny valley response from others. Round faces. Intelligence. A philosophic or cute personality. Hime cuts are a plus.
The most recent thing I've seen?... Maybe Nichijou. I'm a pretty huge Mushishi fan, but I enjoy a lot of shows. I tend not to watch shows that have tons of episodes. That means shows that extend above 100. Higurashi is awesome. I also really enjoy Casshern Sins. I like those kinds of things.
