If you try to remove the IME from your computer, a beautiful moe manga character appears, and asks you to consider continuing to use the program, shedding a few tears as a means of cementing your loyalty.
Although the program became an online talking point when it was featured on RocketNews24, 2ch netizens are unconvinced, terming the program spyware and claiming that the girl is not that cute anyway. Still, makes you wonder whether they actually went through with uninstalling it…
【Moe】When You Uninstall The Chinese-Made Japanese-Language Input “Baidu IME”, A Beautiful Young Girl Cries: “Please Point Out Where I Went Wrong”
It’s been discovered that when you attempt to uninstall the Chinese-made Japanese-language input system “Baidu IME”, a beautiful young girl appears and cries. It’s an amazing idea, that the tears of this beautiful girl can stop you from uninstalling the program.
・ You just can’t uninstall it, can you? (笑)
Because you feel so sorry for the beautiful girl and you’re crushing on her, it seems there are some people who say: “Aww no fair! You just can’t uninstall it, can you? (笑). “Baidu IME” is installed on this reporter’s (my) computer too, so I tried to uninstall.
・ Her style is modest but with huge tits
When I actually tried to uninstall it, the beautiful young girl really did appear! She’s a moe girl with cat ears and a slender neck, and her style is modest but with huge tits. The comment “I did my best up to now, but won’t you use me a little longer?” is displayed. The advantages of “Baidu IME”, such as “You can enter freaky faces [emoticon style that is often used on 2ch], and lots of different face emoticons” and “You can also enter ASCII art really easily” are also written.
・ Please point out where I went wrong
If you still choose to uninstall the program, she says humbly “Thank you so much for everything…Please point out where I went wrong”! Plus, the beautiful girl is crying, isn’t she?! Oh oh oh! When such a cute girl is crying, how on earth can you uninstall it?!
・ Is there only a Windows 8 version?
By the way, it appears that the version in which the beautiful girl appears is for Windows 8 only, and (it is thought) that she doesn’t appear in other versions of the program. Still, if you have Windows 7 you can still install the Windows 8 version, so those of you who want to see the beautiful girl can check it out.
Comments from 2ch.net:
This doesn’t even make me want to install it.
Come on, this program downloads onto your computer without you knowing.
I can only see this as spyware that gets into your computer before you even know it.
If you have self-awareness, don’t download onto our computers without us knowing.
Downloads onto your computer without you knowing, then when you say you don’t want it, the girl bursts into tears. What a loser.
Chinese spies. Get rid of it.
Back in the day they had this kind of widget for the desktop.
An new sort of invasion of Japan by China, huh?
Seriously, Chinese software, it’ll hijack your computer the minute it gets the chance.
I like this kind of playfulness. Would have been great if it wasn’t Chinese-made.
I don’t think she’s all that cute, but I guess that if she actually appeared I’d hesitate…Dirty tactics.
Those who use tears are cowards.
Before crushing on her, I actually get frightened.
So this is a WW2 style honey-trap, huh?
