@End I'm not sure as I haven't watched much or any anime recently. The only one I can think of is Mikasa. Like my post if I'm right?
I wouldn't say I turned out the way I did because of societal expectations point blank directly like that, more like everyone is influenced by them to an extent. There's also how much things resonate with you as an individual. For example when I was a kid, I would tie my barbies up naked with toilet paper and make gallows with my legos and rubber bands and torture them lol. My dad is an ILI and abhorred girly things, so it seemed like I absorbed and bended to his values to some extent, but on the other hand it must have resonated with me too. I was not similarly "influenced" by other primary caretakers of mine in such a way- in quotations again because it only worked as far as it resonated with me, for my case.

So I would say it's both society and individuals, but within the limits of what resonates with you.
Thank you for the question. Made me think.
