There needs to be a like button to click for Britty's post there. I'm a derp, I just saw it, lol.

Honestly I'm not a fashion person. I'll stick to my Wal-Mart clothing, thanks.

here is the world premier "episode"
epic fail.

No.

Nonononononono.

What. The. Heck. Bandai America?!

What did I see? An app that looks like a pink version of the mobile Photoshop app with stickers, short shorts, poor, pathetic excuses for Tamagotchi, and some guy talking about pants.

I'm not even sure that's exactly what he was talking about, I was laughing too hard.

This is sad, Bandai America seriously thinks we we want this? That this was the Tamagotchi we were looking for? Short shorts, jackets, and webisodes about some girl and her friends?

Then those pixels they threw in, just so they could still tack on the Tamagotchi name?

Unless there's an actual physical Tamagotchi involved, I'll be sticking with Bandai Japan. They actually know what their fans want.

Okay... Well the direction seems to be a vote of no-confidance. (clothing) not my cup of tea either but...

I am looking at the stories page... They are digging for ideas. What was something you liked about the vintage tamas? Features and stuff... Maybe they will combine it into a new tama.? I see it happening, maybe not right now, but its possible. People have been petitioning to "Bring Back Vintage" (tamas) well....? Maybe they want those stories in a more formal, collected and in memorable way. if they have the proof under their nose, ideas comes easier.

They disabled comments on the youtube video lol
But the website is final online and its every bit as bad as the video
http://tamagotchilife.com/
They aso say this in the FAQ so all is no bleak
Will there be a new Tamagotchi toy in the U.S. anytime soon?
Bandai, the company responsible for the sale of over 78 million Tamagotchis since its November 23, 1996 debut in Japan, considers Tamagotchi a core brand and priority. Bandai is planning an exciting re-launch of Tamagotchi product timed to fit in with a dynamic new strategy.


This sounds like there may be hope for a new US Tamagotchi afterall. As I've said before I'm hoping something will be announced at Toy Fair in February. That stories page they have may well be Bandai trying to gage the level of interest for Tamagotchi in the US as well.

This is very agreeable, although I find it questionable because if we remember correctly, Bandai America put up an online petition to release the +Color in North America. Apparently it didn't push through... I wonder how much "proof under their nose" do they actually need, considering many Tama fans have responded to it?

We are not 18+, although quite a lot of our younger members have got annoyed by people saying we are. And 10 year olds have every right to like Tamagotchi. I agree that Tamas should not become childish and ONLY for young children - but in the same way, young children should not be excluded from enjoying Tamagotchi. I agree with all you said except that, though.



When tamagotchi FIRST came out ( p1,p2) which is who the tamagotchi l.i.f.e is targeted at are now 18+

Then I wonder why it's all babyish.. Watch the video again.. They are saying its educational.. And quite frankly, it seems like a cheap kids show.

Sync beatz is so weird with this.

I didn't say you said it. I said 18+ girls... based on the L.i.f.e. video episode thingy.

I officially dislike Tamagotchi Life even more now after seeing the website.
First of all, the name once again. Love is fun everywhere. What genius thought of that?
Also, even though I didn't watch the video (connection is so slow it wouldn't have loaded anyway) I saw the screenshot and immediately thought: "those girls have no idea what the heck tamagotchi really is." They can't. They were probably like oh you're pretty you wanna be in a fail of a webisode and they were like OMG SURE.
Agh. Just agh. Tamagotchi isn't about fashion. It's not about the latest trend. Sure, tamagotchi was once the latest trend. But not now.
Tamagotchi is about a pet, and caring for that pet. Not about jeans.
I really considered "sharing my story", as they said. About when tamagotchi was good.

Just like the care and attention you gave your Tamagotchi...

What really freaks me out is that they're talking about Tamagotchi in the past tense. :o
