    Sweet Android high school japanese manga

    Geeks love Android and geeks love manga, so the Japanese comic called “Sweet Android High-school” seems a match made in heaven.

    Featuring characters that symbolize the major Android manufacturers, from Moto-Laura-chan (Motorola) to Soni-Eri-chan (Sony Ericsson), the new comic is published in the storied Japanese PC magazine ASCII.

    Here’s the basic premise – Professor Google teaches at the Android highschool, where students include:

    • Moto-Laura-chan (Motorola)
    • Sam-Sung-chan (Samsung)
    • H-T-Syee-chan (HTC)
    • Elle-G-chan (LG)
    • Soni-Eri-chan (Sony Ericsson)

    These are all international students, but Japanese manufacturers are represented by Sharp (Sharp-chan), Fujitsu-Toshiba (Fuji-Toru-chan), and Casio-NEC (Kashio-Nko-chan).

    All the students are girls, depicted in typical manga fashion. They all wear distinctive signs that give away their identity; for instance, Moto-Laura-chan chews bubblegum and wears an M-shaped tiara in her blond hair, which resembles the Motorola logo.

    Fittingly, Professor Google is married to Moto-Laura-chan, but worry not, he doesn’t give her any advantages over the other students.

    Apple is represented too. As you would expect, Apple-kun attends a different high school and he constantly argues with, who else, Sam-Sung-chan.

    If you want to learn more about Professor Google and the gang, head over to the source. There’s also a full description of each character on the Weekly ASCII website, in Japanese.
