Microsoft’s Magical Girls

 

I learned something new today while browsing the web. I didn’t know that turning out magical girl mascots was a regular thing for Microsoft.

I do however remember that back in 2013 there was a little buzz over the video featuring a personified Internet Explorer:

If this personified Explorer was more realistic, her transformation sequence would take fifteen minutes to load, and she’d crash unexpectedly right in the middle, only to find herself standing in the street, completely naked. Heck, even Microsoft has now given up on Explorer: they’ve replaced it with something called Edge. I bet nobody actually uses that one, either.
