Sigh...I can think of three good reasons why Mametchi should be in the logo.
But I see that I'm the only person who feels this way. Oh well...If it has to be Mimitchi, please have lots of animations with...um...characters that aren't artefacts, like MAMETCHI!
- He is a boy. Mimitchi is a girl, so it makes this site seem more for girls.
- Mametchi is recognizable as a Tamagotchi, but Mimitchi could easily pass for some random rabbit.
- It looks weird to have an ancient fossil in a nice, new Tamagotchi version.
EMF, we all respect your liking of certain characters, but have you thought about why mametchi is easily liked? Because he is cute. You know, the big anime eyes, small, big, cute ears, the works. That's why I think if we change the logo, and we change mimitchi to mametchi, then the site will actually look girlier.
Mimitchi is not an artifact. She is a classic tamagotchi character who is on the 15th anniversary iD L, as well as previous tamagotchi versions.
That being said (I hope I wasn't too harsh) I love your idea with all the animations of different characters! Even though we do have different animations, there should be some different ones with newer and older characters so that we show that we're not only focusing on new, popular characters.
