CyanogenMod gets a new boot animation for CM9
The video (embedded below) replaces an earlier version developed for CM9 that stared the iconic Andy the Android; the new animation stars Cid, a new mascot the CM team introduced back in April. At the time Cid lacked a name – it was being referred to as rAndy at the time, a name we weren’t terribly fond of. While Cid may conjure up images of a spike-haired kid torturing toys, it at least avoids capitalization-based word play.
Check out the video below…you’ll see that Cid develops some attitude as the animation progresses. Let us know your take on it in the comments section below

I also don't really like Cid.
I'd prefer an upgraded version of Andy with a cyan lightsaber and laser cannons on its shoulders.

More and more things seems to add anime like effects these days. Pretty sweet stuff.
