Erm, you keep saying Tamagotchi is girly but the debate is about the anime (and not the Yume Kira Dreams one either), and have you actually seen it? Quite a few eps here and there are girly but the majority are all awesome and have adventures and focus on boy characters. Like there's one where Mametchi and his friends go into Spacytchi's house, which is actually a spaceship, but the friends don't know and Kuchipatchi accidentally makes it blast off into space...will they ever get home? :o And there's another where Gotchi King gets a terrible disease and Mametchi and his buddies venture into a mysterious cave which may hold the key to Gotchi King's recovery...sorry for blabbering so much but the Tamagotchi is enjoyable for both boys and girls. 8(

No, no! You misunderstood what I was trying to say. I never said Tamagotchis were only for girls. I didn't say they couldn't be enjoyed by boys and girls. Let me clarify...

I know the first Tamagotchi anime was more gender neutral. The "girly cartoon characters with sparkly eyes" comment wasn't what I think of them. It's what other people who are unfamiliar with Tamagotchis might think. For example, you could be watching an episode where Ikemen Mametchi appears. Ikemen Mametchi and a few other characters have sparkly eyes as part of their character designs. He's based on bishonen / pretty boy characters from early '70's shojo manga. Manga from this period had a distinct art style which gave everyone sparkly eyes regardless of gender. Also, Ikemen Mametchi is often accompanied by roses and sparkles around him. This is common in a lot of older shojo works to show that a character is charming and prince-like.

But obviously, most people we know aren't anime geeks, so there's no way they'd know any of that! Whereas we see a charming and funny character in a series that guys have an equal chance of enjoying, they'd only see a "girly cartoon character with sparkly eyes." Especially if you're old enough that they think you shouldn't be playing with Tamagotchis any more.

The "diabetes-inducingly cute" was about the characters who will be appearing on the Tamagotchi P's, not the ones in the anime. I wasn't the only one on that topic who thought Bandai Japan took the girlyness and turned it into an art form. Japan's obsession with cuteness and changing the mascot / characters to girlier ones probably does appeal to young girls ( or older men who like cute things ), but outside of Japan an adult ( and especially a male one ) is expected to use smartphones / iPhones and not what they recognize as a children's toy they used to play with when they were younger.

So yeah, sorry for the confusion because a cartoon / anime for girls ( or boys ) only? Pffft ~ ! Tamagotchis ( and MLP and tons of other series people call girly ) should be something loved by both genders! 8D

^ Ah, I get it. Yes, the Tamagotchi P's and the Yume Kira Dreams anime are AWFULLY girly, but I'm glad you understand the original Tamagotchi! anime wasn't girly in the least. xD

My pet peeve is when people don't reply to PMs I spent a lifetime writing.

^ oh gosh that happens to me alllllllll the time. any guy i talk to is automatically my boyfriend -_-*

when you ask someone a serious question, and their answer is a joke
OR
when you you tell somebody a secret and they're like "oh yeah, everybody knows that already!" because apparently everybody knows everything about my life o.o
OR!!!
when somebody overhears you talking on the phone with your best friend, hears you say something that taken out of context can be really awkward, and then brings it up in front of your whole tennis team!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! then you try to explain yourself by saying "what I meant was...." but nobody believes you...

Mine is related to that. Angsty teens who drone on about how bad their life is and how everyone hates them and how they hate everyone ( including people who've done nothing bad to them ) so they could wallow in their bubble of self-sympathy. What's worse is that they don't even realize we all have lives and problems of our own to deal with, and we don't have the time / patience to console them. The reasons they feel this way are really small and petty to begin with. :S

When people expect you to be in two places at once (*cough* gym teacher *cough*)
When people think you're a freak for liking Tamagotchis. I was telling a few friends the other day that I was writing a Tamagotchi fanfiction, and they rolled their eyes at one another and one of them started talking about my "weird color-screen japanese tamagotchi." ("I couldn't even use it! Everything was in Japanese!!" -what a surprise)
And a host of other dissatisfying things that I don't really want to mention on here.

I was called a bad person because I reblogged a post saying that I find behavior like this stupid plus reblogged another one which was about complaining about parents because they think their children are just overdramatizing.
My mom is like that too, and I don't complain. She doesn't want to get me homeschooled, doesn't want me to visit anyone to prescribe me some pills for anxiety, just so I don't make a victim out of myself. And you know what? She is right. During her times kids had way worse problems, and yet were happy, so I'm not surprised that she is annoyed by me because I'm scared of people. I just have to fight it all by myself, not run away from it. Without taking photos of myself snuggled in a blanket like a burrito, getting it on tumblr and capting it "im so pathetic just call me when world ends".
I got an anonymous ask that I don't know how people like this feel and I don't know what a real suffer is.
Heh. Maybe I'm just mature.

So in other words, my major pet peeve are tumblr people.

When people judge me for even wearing small heels. It can't be helped that I'm really short, is it really such a crime for wanting to be a little bit taller?

When people are disrespectful in class when touchy subjects are brought up, such as war, poverty or murder. It irritates me that people can laugh through videos or talks on those subjects when they're so tragic. Maybe it's just me being sensitive, but I think it's a little arrogant to laugh at these things when one day it could happen to you.

/.Wow sorry a lot of little things really annoy me :L
