I never really watched the show but people used to tell me I was like Eric from That 70s Show. Also, the Matthew Modine character in full Metal Jacket and the main character from Can't Hardly Wait. Whatever.
Personally I find it easiest to identify with characters who are "almost human" yet not quite there. Data, Bishop, Seven of Nine, Cameron (Sarah Connor Chronicles)

at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….

different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
domain in which it is clear and adequate…. - David Bohm
Anime must be a mostly Gen-Y-and-later thing?; I have no idea about any of it.
The only two characters I can relate to decently, and I think I'm similar in demeanor/thoughts, is Angela from 'My So-called Life' and Charlotte in 'Lost in Translation'. Though when I was Angela's age (right when the show was airing!!), I didn't have the social life she had, and I think I was less daydreamy. Probably a little less angsty at that point in my life. But the overall elements of her I found relatable. With Charlotte, I could just relate to quite a bit, and also think her demeanor and how she engages with people and dialogues, her introvertedness and processing, life questions, is pretty similar to me.
