Nanami Madobe CM

Since Windows 2000, Microsoft's Japanese IME (input method engine) has been the best-of-class in the PC market. Those clever engineers have now turned their formidable brain power to a project no less important: the Nanami Madobe OS-Tan CM! (A CM, or "commercial message," is pronounced shii-emu in Japanese.)

C'mon, let's all build our own Windows PC!

And for today's manga/anime terminology lesson, the video illustrates the chibi (or superdeformed) style, basically a cartoon of a cartoon (:27 to :35). Plus, Nanami's store is in Akihabara, the center of Japan's (and perhaps the world's) geek universe.
