[Tran s: Enjoying Managing your money: Tamagotchi Account Book]
Just Released in Japan today.
Chou Yarikuri Enjoy: Tamagotchi Kakeibo!
I was the first one to buy one. Haven't opened it yet, [I did slip out the instruction booklet though]
but when I do I'll post more pictures and information. The instruction booklet looks pretty thick, at about 34 pages long.
Pictures in Tamatalk Photo Album:
Just a heads up, the kakeibo is not really a Tamagotchi, you don't care for any gotchi.
What it is, is a tool for managing and economizing for your ENTAMA.
Kakeibo means [money book]
While It might be possible for other infrared tams to connect, the
website says in bold letters "For Use with Entama".
The Kakeibo comes with an account book as well that you use to hold
Basically, the kakeibo is more in-depth Deka with some tamatown
thrown in, Think of it as a place in TamaTown that you can own and go to anytime
The places that are on Ginza street are:
There is also a Gotchi Bank for you to deposit money for later use.
You can also invest your money into Gotchi stock and watch your
invest grow. Or drop. CHARACTER: Dango Obatchi-san
[One of the main reasons why I got one. You can only have
9999G on your Entama. But now we can use money more freely... Ive been wanting to
get a spaceship but don't want to go down to 0G in one go. Also I hate having my littloe
Gotchi getting a salary of 5000G everyday from work it already has 9999G
(>.<; ) ]
There is the Gotchi Library
Here you can make a dictionary. If you help in the library you can
recieve free service. [Thats my direct translation from the website - what it means to make
a dictionary, I have no idea.] CHARACTER: Waka Okutchi San
Next there is the YariKuri Center
[Yarikuri means "to manage, or get by, the best you can with what you
have"] Here you can auction off, or sell your gotchi points, or items and so
on in a flea market.
Osewatchi is the main character on the Kakeibo and she'S Ginza's most
famous resident. She'll help you out around Ginza Street.
Finally there is the Ginza Street Arcade.
Here you can play games and win money and items [I think] But the
website only says that you have to keep the ball from hitting Osewatchi. So it seems there is only
one game in the Arcade.

Well, I was wrong about being able to deposit money from your entama into Ginza Street Gotchi Bank.
You can only deposit money made on your Kakeibo into the bank.
However you can send money from Gotchi bank to your Entama.
This kind of defeats the purpose of why I bought the stupid thing. So now Ive lost about 70% interest in it >.<
Unless your a hard core collector I don't recommend this one to anyone. However if your are confident in your Japanese ability go for it. It can be played with, but you'll need a dictionary, or in my case, a Japanese wife. Like Entama news, there are daily announcements. Sales and bargain and such daily. while not important its there.
The kakeibo is really thin. Like a calculator! Check it out in the pics. The kakeibo fits in the account book nicely. The account sheets are for balancing your budget. Just like you would do for your checking account if you live state side.
There are four different types of sheets.
Regular bank account
[deposit up to a 999G+ in multiples of 10]
Regular bank savings account
[deposit up to a 9,999G+can't make withdrawls for 2days or you have to pay a penalty]
Super bank savings account
[deposit up to a 99,999G+can't make withdrawls for 5days or you have to pay a penalty]
Also you have sheets for keeping a record of the daily announcements.
You have to create PIN number for accessing the bank.
Finally, when you start up the kakeibo and input the dates, names, and birthday as usual. You get a playing bonus of a 1000G
I took that 1000G and invested it in Tamagotchi stocks this afternoon. A minute ago I checked it and its up 800G! Should I sell? Probably but lets see if it goes up some more!
