I have numerous pics of this character and she seems to be a performer. I can't find any information on it. I have tried Google's reverse image search and had no luck.

What anime/visual novel/etc. does this come from?

HELP

    If you have other pictures of the same character, it might help to include them. I don't recognize her (though by the art style it's most likely a VN) and reverse image search isn't giving anything for your image. – Logan M Aug 23 '15 at 6:47
  • Consider adding anything else you can think of from here: meta.anime.stackexchange.com/a/892/2044. In this case, at the very least, when and where did you get these images? – ton.yeung Aug 23 '15 at 6:54

    Both images here have a 4:3 aspect ratio and the art style pretty clearly suggests VN images, so it's quite likely that she's from a VN. However, iqdb, google reverse image search, and saucenao don't find anything, and tineye only finds one result which is a dead link. I looked through the character databases at vndb and acdb and also didn't find anything either. At this point I've exhausted everything I can think of, though I'll keep trying. I'm genuinely curious where she's from because I haven't seen a situation like this before with VN artwork. Hopefully someone can identify her. – Logan M Aug 23 '15 at 7:42
  • I believe that I have read this character in series where the Main character is forced into a band that plays illegal concerts. Also the Main character (guy) has really ugly guitar that suppose to be rare. – Tasear Aug 23 '15 at 13:50

It's from an old VN called Missing ~Itsuka Kitto~ (Missing ~いつかきっと~). VNDB says it's published in 1998.

Take a look at the girls' uniform. The red-haired also wears a choker and has some kind of antenna (ahoge) at the side of her head.

Handoko.Chen's answer seems to be correct; the images are from the 1998 VN Missing ~いつかきっと~. Coverage of this VN is very sparse on the internet, but I've managed to find a bit more information about the character. She's clearly in the opening on Youtube, which shows the same girls but doesn't have any names. Here's another image:

enter image description here

Her name is 光星 美姫, which is apparently supposed to be read Mitsuhoshi Miki according to this slightly NSFW page (which I also took the image above from) and a couple others. Some biographical details (spliced from several sources and translated to English):

Takatori Yayoi's (鷹取 弥生) roommate. She's in a band and has a rough look. However, in fact she's the daughter of a good family and has excellent grades and is also skilled at housework, being the best cook among all 9 girls. You shouldn't judge people by their appearances. After graduation, you get married in spite of her parents' opposition.

  • Age: 17
  • Height: 160 cm
  • 3 sizes: 84-58-86
  • Blood type: A
  • Birthday: September 23rd

Besides the images apparently matching the description and the linked fansite above, the other way I'm relatively sure she's the right character is that of the 9 characters, she's the only one described as having red hair in the bio (the other character with reddish-brown hair in the image is Takatori Yayoi who is described in her bio as having "chestnut/maroon" colored hair).

  • I might be wrong, but 光星 = Kousei in jisho.org. – Han Aug 24 '15 at 6:54
  • As a regular word, it would be Kousei, but as a name, Mitsuhoshi seems more likely (though Kousei is also a possibility). – senshin Aug 24 '15 at 7:34
  • @Handoko.Chen Kousei is the more common reading of 光星, and is also a possible name. I originally thought that was the intended reading. However, I found a few sources via google (search for "みつほしみき" missing) which include the reading みつほし and none which use こうせい, so I figured that was the correct one. I've edited my answer to include one which looks relatively credible and which conveniently also has a picture I didn't notice until today. – Logan M Aug 24 '15 at 18:52
