Funny topic. I'd noticed a while back there's a female hairstyle that pops up in anime that I don't see much in real life, at least in the U.S. Short in the back, with long sides above the ears. Like Linna in "BGC:Tokyo 2040" (also Priss's Japanese seiyuu), Kusinagi in Ghost in the Shell. Lain is a lopsided version of sorts. I think it's cute, but probably a pain if those 'bangs' are always blowing in your face.
