Short Speech in Japanese - Spoken by a Robot



The girl in the video is named Actroid DER 2. She is a humanoid robot and was demonstrated at a robotics show in Japan in 2006, when this was recorded. She seems to give a short presentation about herself in a probably pre-recorded human voice, but I only know tiny bits and pieces of Japanese. Could any Japanese speakers please translate what she says after "Hiiii, everyone!"? Is she using speech constructions typical of a woman of the age she appears to be? Does anything she says come off as weird or unnatural?
