The Aizawa family are the official mascots of Microsoft Silverlight (in Taiwan). Inspired by the popularity of Nanami and the Bing girls, in late 2010 Microsoft Taiwan created Aizawa Hikaru, an official anime mascot for their Silverlight program. After Hikaru's popularity not only in Taiwan, but in other countries as well, they debuted her 3 sisters later in the same year. A picture of them can be seen here.

Marketing

The girls' popularity sparked their own website off of Microsoft Taiwan's Silverlight page. Their site is filled with free wallpapers, which in turn inspired an outpouring of artwork from the community. The positive feedback has inspired other things involving the girls, including a desktop gadget and a visual novel. There is even a promotional video featuring Hikaru, in the same way as the Windows 7 promotional video featuring Nanami. The girls' website is here.
