This is a Gremlins parody strip about Me-tan. Me-tan is a girl who has green pigtails.

Perhaps, a few background explanations is necessary for deviants who doesn't know OS-tans phenomenon well. Me-tan is the personification of Windows Me, which was very troublesome OS. Windows Me demanded a large amount of memory resource for operation, and it had freezed or displayed blue screen often.

Many users were not satisfied with Me. However, in 2chan, one user proposed; "We can love Me if we think Me is a young, immature housemaid?".

It was the beginning of OS-girls saga, "Troubled Windows". (See also [link] )

Hundreds of amateur artists have drawn many thousands fanarts and fancomics of Me. This internet phenomenon was featured on several magazines in Japan. You can see many OS-tans' (who are Me-tan and her sisters) fanarts in this uploader board. [link]

ME-tan looks like some kind of baby Ferengi in that image. Then again, that's kinda what a human baby with gremlin ears would look like.

I think the E should be capitalized. ME-tan not Me-tan.

Windows ME! I like all the other OS-girls, they're cute and its cool how their personalities are based on how the real OS are. XP girls are chubby and eat a lot of "food" (memory) :D.

Cute comic, I hope to see more!

I thought Me was bad but then since my last unexpected General Protection Error with Win95 made me think otherwise.

Me-tan hits 120gb hard drives with hammers. (no 48bit support)
