We have been reporting how often personification received positive responses from tech/net-friendly consumers. For example, Android handsets, computer virus and popular web services had gotten anthropomorphic images by third-parties.
A Twitter user @kudou39 noticed that a Japanese foreign exchange company SBI FXTrade featured 9 virtual girls for 9 major currencies they are offering trade. Here is a poster he found at station in Tokyo waterfront.
SBI FXTrade’s site has them, too.
The characters embody these currencies;
- NZD – New Zealand dollar
- AUD – Australian dollar
- CHF – Swiss franc
- USD – United States dollar
- JPY – Japanese yen
- EUR – Euro
- ZAR – South African rand
- GBP – Pound sterling
- CAD – Canadian dollar
At the site, each girl has her own “Girl’s Report” corner and provide information around herself.
Some of the currency girls seem to give reports not only in matter-of-fact manner but also with long seasonal greetings, her personal lives in their countries, etc.
