thats an extremely strange glitch, its not common to happen but very neat!

Whoa! That's very weird, and very cool.
Sometimes Tamagotchis trip up when you start them; I've too seen all kinds of weird phenomena on my Tamagotchis (but not Japanese characters!) when I put in the batteries, and the problems disappear when I re-insert the batteries or reset the Tamagotchi.
*speculation* However, the fact that you found this glitch means that English-language Tamagotchis (quite likely) have the same basic information hardwired into them as Japanese Tamagotchis; the English ones are just set differently.

I noticed earlier that when I connect japanese plus tamagotchis to connections, the names of the japanese tamas show up in japanese characters on the connections, while the connection character's names only show up as some funny signs on the japanese tamas.
Apparently connections could handle japanese characters, but I never came to Amat's smart conclusion. Super cool, but yet it feels kinda logical. Like why create new system when you can just alter an already existing one, or something.
I wonder if it's possible to put different connections in japanese mode?

Interesting, I've been wondering if English and Japanese tamas can connect. I guess they can, haha

That's so weird and cool! I wish you could've taken a picture of it.
