If you’ve always wondered what your favorite Android smartphone looks like if it were converted into a human being, the wait is almost over. Well, not exactly as humans but pretty close. ASCII Media Works’ Weekly ASCII computer magazine has posted the characters of Hana no Android Gakuen (Android School of Flowers). The manga (comic book) series is by Noriyuki Kayama and is based on several Android phone manufacturers.
Dressed up as Japanese schoolgirls, Android has never looked this sexy—ever. The characters include the following:
- Sam Sung-chan (Samsung)
- Moto Laura-chan (Motorola)
- H.T. Syee-chan (HTC)
- Soni Eri-chan (Sony Ericsson)
- Elle G-chan (LG)
- Sharp-chan (Sharp)
- Fujitsu-chan (Fujitsu)
- Casio NV-chan (Casio)
- Apple-kun (Apple)
Considering that these manufacturers are not Japanese, their anime counterparts are also international students. Meanwhile, Dr. Google is their professor. Get to know more about each character by visiting this link.
The magazine has also posted various installments of the manga as well as a phone wallpaper containing characters of the series on their website. The manga also depicts the recent developments in the Android world such as Google’s recent buyout of Motorola– which has been translated to Google getting married to Moto-Laura-chan.
There are no English translations of the comic (yet) but we do hope they come up with one pretty soon. The manga series is currently published weekly on Weekly ASCII, a long standing PC magazine hailing in Japan.
