What if you combine Google’s Android operating system Japanese High School and Manga? You get Hana no Androido Gakuen or Sweet Android High School.
The manga, reported in Asiajin.com, depicts the handset makers as female high school students and Mr.Google as their teacher. There are 8 characters portrayed as the handset makers, Kashio-Nko-chan (Casio-NEC), Fuji-Toru-chan (Fuji-Toshiba), Elle-G-chan (LG), Sam-Sung-chan (Samsung), Sharp-chan (Sharp), Soni-Eri-chan (Sony Ericsson), H-T-Syee-chan (HTC), and Moto-Laura-chan. The –chan is a Japanese post-nominal used normal to young females, in this case, the high school students. Even Apple makes an appearance as Apple-kun (-kun, similar to –chan but for boys), who is from another high school.
The manga’s stories come from the real world “drama” of the handset makers and then some. Such drama in the manga is the constant arguments between Sam-Sung-chan and Apple-kun from the numerous suits between the two companies as well as the marriage between Mr. Google and Moto-Laura-chan, when the search company acquired Motorola Mobility.
The manga appears on the extra editions of Weekly Ascii, a long-running PC magazine in Japan. There is even a page (in Japanese) profiling the different characters in the manga.
