At first thought after seeing The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya mentioned, I thought its Neon from Sigma Harmonics. Anyways, this character in the profile seems a little cute.

The fact that cities in Japan have schoolgirls as mascots is disturbing.

Mikuru imouto-version. It's okay, just a bit too standard imouto-ish.
