The new characters are cute, but they shouldn't become main characters. The main characters should be more gender-neutral, older characters like Mametchi, Memetchi, Kuchipatchi and Violetchi. I remember the old mascots used to be those, 2 boys and 2 girls, all with fun personalities. We were happy with those but then girly characters started coming along. They're okay as background characters, not featured in every Tama or anime episode, but not as main characters. There has been no significant decrease in male Tamagotchi fans since the old Tamagotchi anime and Yume Kira Dreams, so why suddenly turn it girly? All they're doing is putting boys and older girls off Tamagotchi.

Since the first movie came out, tamagotchi has been aimed towards young females in japan. That's their target age for the anime, toys, and video games for quite a while now. It was different during the vintage age(Which in Japan, apparently many adults had tamagotchis) but, now they aim towards only children.

Me, I just want the vintage ones back. I mean, look at these three: :puroperatchi: : :kusatchi: : :mametchi:. They are cute, fun, and simple. When Lovleytchi fist came out, I was like, "What is this!?!?" I mean, I like her now, but ONLY because I saw the other new characters and decided Lovlin is fine compared to them. Melodytchi is alright too, but that's about as far as I'll go. I mean, LOOK at KeroPyontchi (You can see the sprite on my profile photo), and compare him to Melodytchi. The human clothes thing irratates me. Mimitchi's and Mametchi's hats are okay though. And Mametchi was perfectly fine as mascot. Why did they let him go? Oh, yeah. Because apperantly, no more boys play Tamagotchi, right? (I'm a girl) Wrong. I know tons of boys on here that play. I love Tamagotchi, but not these new ones :rolleyes:

This has been like this for months lel

And yeah, tamagotchi is aimed towards very young girls in Japan, you know that, right? It's been like that for the past 4 or so years and it's been a good success for BanDai Japan.

Yes, I know. I have nothing against BanDai Japan deciding that their market would be aiming for young girls there. But BanDai America and Europe arn't making anything new anymore and Japan is the only one left, therefore all of the new characters are girly. I just want the old simple ones back... let's hope Tamagotchi LIFE ins't as big as a flop as I'm imaganing. But I'm glad they fnally realized the vintage ones need to come back. Sorry if any of my posts sounded a little harsh, I did not intend for them to come out like that, I'm just stating my opinion ^_^

The problem I have with life is how freaking casual and how it's aiming towards people who probably barely remember tamagotchi. They are not trying anything new at all, they are just attempting cash in on it. :/

I see your point, but I can assure you I know a good chunk of everything there is to know about Tamagotchi. But anyways, let's not question my loyalty to Tamagotchi here. All I'm saying is that I think it's nice how they decided to bring something from 1997 back. I like the vintage series better then the modern versions, but I don't HATE the modern ones :rolleyes: I just prefer the Ocean, Angel, the origionals and the v1-v4.5. Remember its only my opinion, it's not like I'm stating that for a hardcore fact :rolleyes:
