Madobe Nanami anime commercial

May 12, 2010

Looks like Microsoft is showcasing its cute Japanese Windows 7 mascot character Madobe Nanami in an anime styled commercial. Had read before there were plans for an animated video but only recently spotted the news at Moetron that it is out.

A short video featuring Nanami advertising self-assembling one’s computer, it packs many classic moe moments which don’t fail to hit the mark. かわいい!

You can also find the video at Nico Nico Douga as well as fansubbed versions around online.

Although I do like the Bing mascots too, the original Nanami is the cutest, no doubt thanks also to Mizuki Nana’s excellent voice work, you may know her from roles as Fate in “Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha”, Touma in “Minami-ke”, Rina in “White Album” or Misaki in “Darker Than Black”.

Nice detail in the animation, it clearly shows how Nanami’s eyes sport the different color gradients from the Windows logo.

    Nice commercial.
    Not to stupid and a bit funny too (moe sells XD).

    And I’m currently using she as my wallpaper too.

    Oooh She’s cute! Although the different gradients in her eye’s intially put me off but I got used to it quickly😀

    It’s terribly cute, saw this a couple days ago. There is a captioned version out on Youtube as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1MtA5vtVVo

    Well cute sells anything in otaku culture. Although in Western culture they’ve mostly omitted putting scantily clad women in commercials since research shows it doesn’t increase sales at all.

    It’s a nicely done video, maybe Microsoft will launch themselves into an anime series featuring all the mascot girls?😄

    It’s death by moe cute.😄 Had spotted a few translated versions around, though the commercial itself is quite understandable even for beginner levels.

    Shameless moe peddling, shameless moe peddling. Oh Microsoft.

    But Nanami is freaking cute. Love those gradient eyes. I wonder if they’d make a figure of her…

    So Apple, how’d you like that? Where’s your OS X animation, huh?
