I think pretty much all of the female mentors in Chihayafuru (the anime -- I haven't read the manga) are excellent, firstly because they are all interesting, well-written characters, and secondly because each one shows a different way to fulfil the mentor role. My personal favourite is Midori Sakurazawa. I really enjoy how analytical and down-to-earth she is; how she applies those traits to being a club advisor and more broadly to how she understands competitive karuta and its players.
