Wow, Anime Mametchi.. That makes me so sad to see him there. :( Next to all the "VINTAGE TAMAGOTCHI CLOTHING!!!111" crap..

by looking at the vid this is gonna suck very badly. I mean they said tamagotchi food,app and math.TAMAGOTCHI MATH AND FOOD WHAT THE HECK BANDAI. but when they said app idk maybe a vpet app? we just have to wait and see

 

I believe he said "things for the bath," not math =P Even still. Like everyone else, I am quite disappointed.

 

guys we really should dislike the vid and tell them what we really want from tamagotchi. we all really want english anime and color tamas so we should just tell them that hopfuly they listin to us

 

Yup :U Hopefully they'll have some common sense to actually listen to their fans and not just carry on clueless the rest of their lives. I also disliked the video and wrote some feedback on it.

 

*sigh* Well I wasn't expecting Tamagotchi to really release anything else in the US after the Tama-Go so I guess I never really had my hopes up in the first place. At least they haven't completely forgotten about tamas.

Well, I sighed a little. Apparel? I'm thinking it's all going to be in tween/teen sizes. I won't be able to wear any of it. Though tamagotchi candy, I might nibble on.

 

@triforceman: I retweeted that.

Haha, umm.. Really now, spamming a very important guy's Facebook account? I wouldn't say that's a great idea. He's a busy man you know, and well.. Just be patient.

 

I already kind of gave up on this anyway :c

The only positive I can see in all this is the app - apps are a very lucrative thing nowadays, with the freemium/microtransaction prospect making a lot of money for app developers. If this is the market that they want to tap into, it could have some good points - the ability for lots of extra content, regular updates, connecting with friends etc. - all the things that companies like to focus on. But then again, there's lots of focus on the retro aspect, right? Even the background of the booth is using Gen 1 characters, so are they really going to be interested in the IDL type Tamagotchis? Hmmm... As for the other stuff apparel/home furnishings, I'm in their "target market" for this stuff and I do not care about any of it - I am only interested in the Tamagotchi itself. Merchandise is nice but it's to support a toy, not flesh out the lack of one.

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA....? That. Totally. SUCKS.

 

Boring clothes for adult women that doesn't even have pictures of TAMAGOTCHIS on it, for cheese's sake?! Whoever is responsible for this... That Barry dummy... Can be punched in the face many, many times.

 

And the app - Well, too bad, I don't have a smartphone. And there are lots of people who don't.

 

And it's a vintage-style thing. Whaaa...? I was hoping it was going to be more of a Mametchi, Memetchi, and Kuchipatchi kind of thing instead of old vintage characters. :/ Is THAT what they're gonna do to Tamagotchi? Treat it as if its some ancient thing that only adults will remember and care about?

 

What about US? WE don't care about boring fashion for old ladies. All WE want is fun stuff like Mametchi plushes, Kuchipatchi figurines, and maybe Memetchi T-shirts in sizes 8-16 or something... But no, Tamagotchi is ruined forever.

Any true Tamagotchi fan would hope more for vintage to be honest............................ Also the T-Shirts will probably have Tamagotchis on them...

 

----------------------------

 

I love the idea of Tamagotchi Life to be honest. I'm probably alone though.

 

I love that it's targeted at the original fan base, the ones that "deserve Tamagotchi" even though it sounds cheesey. They're the ones that will get nostalgia when they see someone they know wearing a Mametchi shirt or something, haha. I think apparel and home deco is great and just because it's not what you all expected doesn't mean its not good! Bandai America is turned American Tamagotchi into it's own thing, rather then just re-releasing the Japanese ones in different ways in English. Even though I'm not the audience, let's face it, the true, young at heart biggest fans seem to be in the age of young adults.

 

For those fans who want the toy, (who generally are new to Tamagotchi in comparison to Young Adults who like it,) they can keep on buying Japanese ones.

 

These things I typed might be messy btw, I'm tired. :P

I agree, although maybe you shouldn't over-react so much. I'm getting a smartphone tomorrow so I'm downloading the apps and I believe they won't be any good at all.

 

I also agree that Tamagotchi's best phase was when the Mametchi, Memetchi, Kuchipatchi gang were the main characters. I see Tamagotchi as three main stages: Vintages, Connections with gender-neutral characters portrayed as playful kids, and iD series with girly Lovelytchi and Melodytchi. The way I see it, after the failure of the girly Tamas, they're reverting back to vintages but at the same time creating a new and different addition to the sequence: Tamagotchi merchandise for adults. And that's not really fair on kids and teens, who are (or at any rate seem to be) the vast majority of Tama fans.

I wish they created another Tamagotchi. I mean seriously?

Is this going to get business up again? Tamagotchi Life isn't THAT bad.

Still, I think it's knd of dumb that there aren't any boys shirts (I'm a girl :P).

I was also mixed up a little on why they brought back a bit of the vintage Tamagotchi stuff. I do love the vintage but

some kids who are going to be introduced to Tamagotchi won't even know what a vintage Tamagotchi is.

I'm just hoping that they'll come out with another new Tama!

I do love Tamagotchi, I'm not too pleased on this one though... -_-
