Randomly, but for the record...  
How many people know my current icon scheme isn't Faye Valentine? Who knows who she really is? I think it's odd that I feel she represents me so well, and I relate to her character in so many ways, and yet not even my boyfriend has seen the show from which she comes.

I was asking out of curiosity, as I'm about to embark on making some new icons of her soon, and I was discussing it with other people tonight.

I've never seen much of the show, but I know about the series and its premise.

Well it's pretty fucking obvious it's not Faye, at least I should hope so. You did mention the show to me that it is from, but of course I can't remember the name of it at the moment.

Dude, I still get comments refering to her as Faye.

Well at the risk of sounding like an asshole, which I am anyway, those people are fucking retarded.

I knew it wasn't F.V, but I don't know who it is.

My anime encyclopedia is shockingly outdated...ghost in the shell and bebop are about the only ones i'm familiar with offhand anymore.

Considering you taught me a good 3/4 of my anime upbringing, I hope I know the difference between Faye and, um, whatever her name is that I'm too lazy to look up right now...

Oooo!! Pick me, pick me!!!!

It's Miyazawa Yukino from Kare-Kano (His and Hers Circumstances).

You are the only winner! Kare Kano (or, for those totally unfamiliar, Kareshi Kanojyo no Jijyo) seems to be something most people I know have never watched. I made a post when I changed telling people this, so I thought I'd have a few more people at least know her name. Guess not. Congrats on your anime knowledge, which at this point surpasses mine (I've been out of the serious anime loop for a while). Sadly, I have nothing to give but admiration for skill and taste, cuz I'm a poor monkey.

That was driving me nuts -- I hadn't heard of the series when you mentioned it, and I still know nothing of it; consequently, I'd completely forgotten the name of the character and the series.

I did, however, know FAR better than to think that was Faye :).

You'd be surprised how commonly Yukino has been mistaken for Faye.

I must be the fact that...their hair is a similar lengh...and most people don't know much anime...and she's not in color!

I know I wasn't in time to be first, but I knew who it was...Miyazawa Yukino from (as has been said) Kareshi Kanojyo no Jijyo, which is one of my favorites. I love it because of its honest emotional portrayals and nutty humor...I had Arima as my icon at one point (I'm much more him than her). Actually, I've loved most of GAINAX's work, aside from stuff like Mahoromatic...FLCL will likely alwyas be my favorite anime ever.

Do you ever watch fanmade music videos? absolutedestiny has done some excellent stuff with Kare Kano...
