I just bought my angel gotchi off ebay and it came about two weeks later.

I noticed though that the icons aren't like what I've seen.

The language is in japanese and the words say "Angel Gotchi" not Tamagotchi Angel

there is no butt with wings or heartshaped meter icon, or fork for the food...

is this a fake?

This is normal, but rare. The first batch of Japanese Angel Gotchi had different icons. (The normal icons can be seen here: http://tamagotch.cha...howt/tenhow.htm and the icons from the first batch can be seen here: http://tamagotch.cha...con/oldicon.htm )

is it also normal for the buttons to have a minor delay? It seems they react about a second after i press down instead of instantaneously.

The button contacts may have tarnished a bit over the years. Button responsiveness may improve with use, over the next while.

My angelgotchi is a little finicky at times. It's normal for such an old toy especially it was played with frequently by the previous owner or even if it was never opened.
