Known to some as Legendary Girl A, Izumi Konata is a supreme otaku in several fields, including MMORPGs, 2ch, anime, manga, figurines, doujins, H-games, video games of all genres, and Comiket. This extremely packed lifestyle all gets balanced with doing housework and taking care of her cousin. Despite her lifestyle, Konata has decent skin and looks (though a rather under-developed body) and an excellent sports sense (she does well at sports without needing to practice). Her hobbies include sharing her H-material with her dad and working part-time at a Cosplay Cafe. She plays a Warrior in an MMORPG where she's established in a large guild with her homeroom teacher as the party Mage. On top of all this, Konata finds time to hang out with real-life friends every now and then. Her hardcore, night-before cramming strategy yields surprisingly good results in tests, which oftentimes annoys her friends. In short: zen time and health management.
At many a time, she knowingly says stupid things just to stir up a reaction. She is easy-going at school, politely militaristic when it comes to Comiket (she cruises down the aisles, buying and loading up as if she is doing a live drill in a military mech) and loves to take every opportunity to tease her friends. You will never see her blush – a hardened Internet Warrior who also has competent, real-life social skills.
Legend has it that she brings good luck to any doujin circle she buys from in Comiket and that she will buy double copies of everything her money can afford (one for usage, one for preservation). Some shopkeepers go to ninja-soldier levels of superhuman efforts to sell her something, but Konata easily eludes them. Is she doing this purposefully? Who knows~
