comment Are anaphoric personal pronouns limited to the third person (彼, 彼ら etc)?
@YangMuye It would be great if you could confirm this and make it an answer.

Possibly. The case I had in mind was when "the anaphoric noun..appears with a relative clause that reiterates identifying information about the referent mentioned earlier" - I am quoting from the same book - in narrative involving yourself you might use 私 with a relative clause, similar to the expressions in your answer yesterday eg 天才美少女であるこのアタシが教えて...<- this was speech but it might be used (without the この?)in a narrative(?) I might be able to come up with better example later.

@user4092: My mistake, now corrected. I should have said anaphoric personal pronouns. (He recognises the use of demonstrative pronouns, although I am not how to classify あの人 - possibly both demonstrative and personal?)
