  1. Either way, I was predicting a Sonic Tamagotchi for a June release to coincide with Sonic's 30th Anniversary, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Ah well. Bandai's got another chance to talk with Sega about making a Sonic Tamagotchi next year when either the 2nd Sonic movie (which my only wish for that is for "SnooPING AS usual, I see" to be one of Jim Carrey's lines) or the 2022 game releases.
  2. Surprised no one has posted about this here yet, so I figured I'd do the honors. In honor of Star Wars day, Bandai has announced an upcoming Tamagotchi virtual pet themed after R2-D2, and its releasing in both Japan & the west! This is a HUGE deal because according to Wikipedia's list of highest-grossing media franchises, particularly the section of franchises worth over $50 billion, Star Wars is #5. This means that Tamagotchi has now crossed paths with all but one of those top 5 franchises. With the numerous Sanrio crossovers involving Hello Kitty, the Mickey Mouse-themed Tama Deco Pierce, the Eevee Tamagotchi from early 2019, and now this, the only one missing is Winnie the Pooh. I can't think of any other franchise that has gotten that close to making such an extraordinary achievement! While I can definitely see Bandai Japan releasing a Star Wars-themed Tamagotchi with minimal legal difficulty, I am curious on how Bandai America was immediately able to follow suit in localization when its biggest international competitor, Hasbro, has the Star Wars master toy license. One year they release the Wonder Garden On instead of localizing the Fantasy Meets to avoid a conflict-of-interest with Hasbro's Disney Princess toy license (which includes Cinderella & Aladdin), and the next they're releasing a Tamagotchi directly themed after Star Wars. It's still a grand achievement, but it's kinda confusing to me.
  3. This is a reason why I'm yearning for a dub of the anime; so that outlets will acknowledge Tamagotchi as far more than just "a toy from the 90's" and reconsider how they describe the franchise.
  4. Now that April Fool's Day is over, I have changed my profile photo so that Mametchi is featured again, & I plan to change it annually so a different Tamagotchi girl is featured alongside him each year. It looks like Coffretchi has been chosen!

    Sorry, Pianitchi. Maybe next time.

  5. Happy April Fool's Day, everyone. In lieu of this joke-abundant day, I have temporarily changed my profile picture.

      NO,STOP

       

      God abhors lies and therefore does not support the presence of liars. God's enemy is described in the Bible as the father of lies.

      We also know that Jesus described himself as being the truth. We also know that it is possible to be truly free through the knowledge of the truth.

      God's people must be known as a people who live in truth and for truth. Therefore, we must run away from the lie and not condone the liars.

      Dude, that's not how you portray kissing. One tama has no lips so it looks like the other is just invading her personal space. Also, there has to be some head tilting because of noses (although, you could argue very few tamas actually have noses). Ehh, maybe I should be grateful you did it the way you did.

      @leogames2012 That's unusually coherent for you. Most of the time I expect your posts to twist the English language in ways I never thought was possible - which is fascinating in its own way (as in, I never knew English could even express half the things you make it do) XD

  6. As good as the anime is, it kinda focuses more on selling merchandise (it's based on a toyline wholly owned by Bandai, a toy company, so of course merchandise sales are gonna be a top priority) than on being as close to an adaptation of the virtual pets as possible. There wasn't even a single death, and anytime such a subject was brought up, it was an implication at best. And not every location from the virtual pets has been adapted to the anime either. There's of course Ura TamaTown, but the Everlasting Spring & Autumn Islands are also left out, which is odd considering the Everlasting Summer & Winter Islands have been adapted.
  7. The AR camera does seem like a decent use of technology, but I'm not sure about the buttons that we've been used to for 2 and a half decades being replaced by touch pads. Kinda breaks tradition and the pads may not be as responsive in some situations. Still too early to make a definitive call, though. Not sure if this will be the Meets/On Successor since it seems to have it's primary gimmick be focused on something else, but in any case, this would've been a great time for Bandai to permit homosexual marriages on the Virtual Pet canon. That would've caused explosive hype reactions on Twitter and Tumblr since they're essentially LGBT hotspots.
  8. Does anyone else think that TamaPtchi from the anime could be a pedophile or is it just me?

      Nothing really happened. You're probably aware of the whole Netflix Cuties fiasco.Despite having never subscribed to Netflix, just hearing about that film has scarred me. I've refrained from using the word "cutie" and instead opted for synonyms because of that film, which is a pretty difficult task when describing a franchise like Tamagotchi.

       

      And I'm not in school. I'm actually a 20-year-old young adult, and adults being seen with kids, especially male adults, is a VERY flimsy bridge to get across, even if the adult is the kids' parent/guardian. My job as a front service clerk at a supermarket frequently involves customers with kids, and and I often fear that even being within 5 inches of a kid's radius, just standing there having zero interaction with the kid, whether inside or outside the job, will get pedestrians to label me as a pedophile and permanently tarnish my reputation.

      I trembled just typing that, and the fact that I'm inevitably going to be an uncle only makes it worse.

      And before you ask, NO. I don't find kids attractive. They are cute and their actions can be funny, sure, but I would never date a kid, because I know that they haven't developed a full sense of romance yet. Even at my current age, I've never experienced romance because I've never dated anyone.

      It's okay, Joc was just showing some concern, based off your past status updates. I know what you mean, about fearing to be wrongfully accused of being a p*d*phile. You'll be okay, since you do not have those intentions, people accuse others of being one if they are acting "strange" or if there's evidence of them being one. 

  9. Well, Flash is gonna be Thanos-snapped off the face of the internet in a few hours. I just want to say thank you so much for granting access to these games after their official shutdowns, especially Dream Town in my case. And I wish you the best of luck in incorporating them to Ruffle so that we can continue to enjoy them in 2021 and beyond.
  10. That is wonderful news. I'm more into the Dream Town game because I adore the aesthetics of the anime and the game itself is too charming to just fade away, but I still whole-heartedly support those who'd rather support TamaTown.
  11. I always felt that Tamagotchi has been pronounced correctly on advertising since Tamagotchi Friends. "Tamagatchi" just didn't sound right to me.
  12. Jeopardy host Alex Trebek has sadly lost his longtime cancer battle. Let's pay a gotchi-fied tribute by remembering a Tamagotchi moment in the show from last year: https://www.instagram.com/p/Byu-mkbFm3U/?igshid=1hvrwiehlvv8c

      "Tamamagotchi", just perfect

  13. I've seen a Wonder Garden commercial on all the big 3 general kid audience channels (Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network). It's clear that Bandai America is really pushing Wonder Garden for the holidays. I'm just hoping that subsequent On localizations keep all the content from the Meets counterparts intact.
