Name: Konata Izumi
Where You've Seen Her: Lucky Star
Her Story: She's a typical high schooler in Japan. Well, maybe not that typical -- she's an intelligent girl who is more interested in her manga, anime and video game interests than her studies.
Why She's Memorable: Because she's somewhat representative of what most people think of when it comes to being an "otaku." Although in her case she also plays games that her friends would find "distasteful" such as adult dating sims. She really loves her lifestyle and doesn't care what her friends think of it, even encouraging them to get involved. And she's loyal to her family, despite their proclivities.
