As many people are aware, there are plenty of Tamagotchi that feature Japanese text. I've been curious for a while as to what such shells say, so I am wondering if anyone has provided translations somewhere already or if anyone (or several people) would be interested in doing so now. I'm sure such a project's results could even be of use and put into the Tamagotchi Wikipedia.

The one shell I am curious about right now is black shell found in this thread:

http://www.tamatalk....showtopic=37085

The shell is in the last post - second row, second column.

If you have any shell images, post their links and I'll add them to this post to keep everything organized. I'll label them so that it'll be easy to refer to each shell.

It says "Nihon" or "Nippon"- meaning "Japan".

There are quite a few Entama designs that have the Japanese character for "Ta" at the top of the shell.

Ah, gotta eat dinner now. See ya!

Ah, thanks! I will have to edit that image and start finding others for translation :ph34r:

Well, I couldn't edit the first post for some reason, so here is the first completed image.

Here are the next 2 shells for translation; the text is the same, but the shell designs are different.

Evidently, I'm also unable to insert images, so I'll just post their links instead.
