Microsoft's Windows Azure Cloud Platform Gets Moe Mascot

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Microsoft Windows' latest moe character is Claudia Madobe, an adept troubleshooting tech and mascot for its Azure cloud-development platform. Claudia is voiced by Eri Kitamura, and she joins Window 7 mascot Nanami Madobe (voiced by Nana Mizuki). Windows' "Cloud Girl" website dedicated to the character reveals that Claudia and Nanami are cousins through Claudia's Japanese father. Claudia's mother is French-American and her brother, Claude, is also a Cloud technician.

Microsoft is streaming anime shorts featuring the new character. Daisuke Namikawa voices the Store Manager and Kanae Itō voices Ruri Azumi.

The website is also hosting informational comics, fair-use guidelines for the characters, and other tutorials for Azure.
