Prologue/Day 0: June 16, Sunday

I attend Tokyo Toy Show's final public day and check out the Bandai booth, which has all mainline Tamagotchi releases on display, organized chronologically. I see the Devilgotchi, and realize that despite owning an Angel back in the 90's, I know very little about its demonic counterpart.

Classic Tamagotchi on display at Tokyo Toy Show

I am intrigued by the package's promise of late night shenanigans, and look it up on Yahoo! Auctions assuming it can't run for much more than any other used classic era Tama. 

I am horrendously mistaken.

This toy is WAY too expensive for frivolous curiosity! 

Why do I want one, anyway? It's no secret I'm stressed about an upcoming interview, and looking for any way to distract myself from anxiety. Sure, I could just pop some fresh LR-44s in any of my P1s or 2s and call it a day, but if I'm gonna impulsively raise a Tamagotchi for the first time in 5 years or so, I want something new, darn it! 

Late night, I do more research to try and learn more about the Devilgotchi, see if there's another way to play. Then, I discover the old 2006 Tamagotchi Monster APK... 

Now, I'm not usually one for installing questionable software on my phone, but if I'm gonna do something weird, what better than a digital devil alien from yesteryear? I install the APK and bridge software that allows me to run the ancient app on my Galaxy S9, and around 2:30 AM, DeviZukitchi is spawned from the depths of the Tamagotchi underworld...and promptly hits the hay. 

Zzz

Fair enough.

Day 1: June 17, Monday

The Devilgotchi wakes up before me at 9 AM. 

On the train I tend to his basic needs, which is somewhat tricky when he actively refuses my care. Every time I think he's trying to be a good boy asking for handshakes, not even a minute later he misbehaves!

That said, after several talking tos by the Angelgotchis and lots of handshakes (am I shaking the ears, wings, or tentacles, I wonder?), he is a very Good Boy with 0 MP.

By early afternoon I am now officially smitten by this little jerk. I show off photos of my naughty child in a group chat and take requests for names. I settle on Stan (short for the devil himself).

Stan and I continue our power struggle  until he goes back to sleep at 9 PM. Lucky for me he is very low maintenance!

I think we're done for the day until a frantic series of beeps goes off around 1 AM. I check on him and there's a big old bat fluttering around in the dark! His first late night shenanigan...!

Good times!

Day 2, June 18

INTERVIEW DAY. 

I spend the entire morning getting ready, and for the most part Stan behaves. Lots of friendly handshakes followed by amusingly petty rebellion. So far my favorite is when he throws pies! 

Good boy asking for a handshakeBad boy in need of divine intervention

Of course, as I am doing my makeup with less than half an hour before I have to leave, he calls for me to hold his hand. Isn't that how it goes, though? 

I make sure my phone is OFF for the interview, and come back to him once it is finished. Luckily he continues to be low maintenance. 

In the evening I take him for a spin at the roller rink, where he returns to sleep at 9 PM with 0 MP like the Good Boy he is.

Day 3: June 19, Wednesday

Stan wakes up at 9 AM, while I follow around 10. It concerns me that his MP is always at 0...I hear you get better characters if they have higher MP when it's time to grow, so I decide it's time to experiment. 

I don't discipline him when he misbehaves, nor do I shake his hand when he offers. It takes all of my willpower not to give him perfect care!

In the early afternoon I receive word that I aced yesterday's interview and the job is mine! In my excitement I forget all about Stan and leave him to his own devices for a few hours.

When I remember to check on him later on I see...a whole lotta poop.

Poop is the perfect way to quickly raise MP. After Stan pitches a fit when I try to flush his poo babies away, I decide we'll play the waiting game. 

6 poops, barely any Stan

4...5...6 smelly poops fill the screen, pushing Stan entirely out of the picture. His MP rockets to 75, and his meters empty almost as quickly as they are refilled. 

Around 4 PM I finally intervene and flush the poop away. Stan is upset for several hours after...his Friend meter completely drains nearly every half hour. Even though he's now thriving, I can't help but feel that I've betrayed his trust in some way. I hold his hand a few times and get his MP to settle to 65 before he clocks out for the night at 9 PM. 

Is tomorrow the day he'll grow into his intermediate stage? I hope so...I want to get his MP back down to something manageable, as I suspect lower MP might correlate with less demanding care needs. Seeing as I now begin a shiny new office job in a week and a half, I need him on his best behavior!

Day 4: June 20, Thursday

For once I am up before Stan!

After yesterday's poopy stand-off, today Stan is irrationally unruly. Throughout the course of the early afternoon his MP climbs rapidly until it peaks at 100, at which point I'm very scared I'm going to lose him! Luckily he does not death spiral, and gives me many opportunities to calm him down and properly care for him. 

I take a short nap in the late afternoon, then awaken to discover that he has grown! Stan's high MP blesses me with a cheeky little Pukudevitchi, which is neat, I guess. Not gonna lie, he looks too friendly to be a demon!

Stan becomes Pukudevitchi

Post-growth spurt Stan is very eager to hold hands (with actual hands now!) multiple times, as well as pull petty pranks. TWICE IN A ROW he begs me not to flush his poop away. Too bad, buddy!

His MP settles between 55-65 before he sleeps, once again, at 9 PM. Considering he's now more capable of mischief in his new form, maybe it's too early to post a log...but any late night shenanigans that may or may not occur shall be reported tomorrow.

Addendum to Day 4

At 11:55 PM Stan set off a series of colorful, noisy fireworks. I don't know where he got them but it was delightfully surprising!

Day 5: June 21, Friday

This is a bit of a rough day for me personally, as my attempts to fix my wacky sleep schedule on top of the anxiety/adrenaline rush/crash from successful job hunting have left me susceptible to some sort of minor bug. While trying not to succumb to a summer cold, I must also care for Stan. 

We are out the entire morning and most of the afternoon, and for the most part he is well behaved. For the first time in a while his MP reaches 0, and things are good.

I forget about him for a few hours, assuming he'll be fine, but I am wrong! Empty meters, poop everywhere, and MP back up to 65! I don't have the energy to deal with this delinquency. 

Luckily he is only awake a few more hours before I tuck him into bed at 9 pm.

Stan sleeps soundly, but I do not. Slightly feverish, I have fitful nightmares about his untimely death. He may be just an app on my phone, but I'm really attached to the little guy. Hopefully the next day will be better for both of us!

Day 6: June 22, Saturday

Stan's stats drain dramatically while he sleeps. Just when I think I have his MP down, it shoots up to 75 again. 

I'm beginning to think these metrics are completely arbitrary as they fluctuate so frequently. 

I'm also a bit concerned about Stan's bowels... He poops a LOT. I feel like every other time I check he's got 2 or 3  forcing him off-screen. How much fiber is in those pies?! 

In the early evening he beeps at me twice in the pharmacy, which is obnoxious. Once for a handshake, once just to be a little jerk! 

The rest of his waking day passes uneventfully, but he surprises me with a violent thunderstorm at 9:30 PM!

15613001689240.jpg.5222e756a9bfb30bc88c5368247a0f74.jpg

I'm still in bad shape, having slept for most of the first half of the day, so I'm grateful for the shenanigans to wrap up early.

Day 7: June 23, Sunday

Stan has been with me a week now! 

It's basically business as usual, only I decide to get some fresh air and hang out in Asakusa with one of my skate buddies. Naturally we stop by Bandai HQ to say hi to Mametchi!

15613021337980.jpg.7f65ed8c0250e1714766bdcab8666be8.jpg

Stan's MP is down to around 20...I hope to raise it a bit higher before he grows again in two days. 

Once again he sleeps at 9 PM, and I think I tired him out with all that walking so hopefully there won't be any pranks tonight. 

On the health front: I feel like myself again except for some sinus funk. Hopefully it shouldn't impact Stan's care any longer!

Day 8: June 24, Monday

Today begins my attempt to raise Stan's MP. I let the poop pile up and ignore handshakes when I can, but his meters, especially Friend, fall fast. 

15614355904510.jpg.436fff7bd8fa68f47b5ebdd8df05f700.jpg

We go skating in the evening and he goes to sleep at 9 PM like usual, no shenanigans. Good boy.

Day 9: June 25, Tuesday

I greet Stan in the morning with all his poop and tend to his other needs. 

I check back in an hour or two later and... 

He waves, poofs, and turns into a big black bat. 

15614358043230.jpg.57277fbd6808dffc693dbf56bf011658.jpg

BAD END?! 

My negligence killed Stan! 

On the day he was supposed to grow!! 

Next time I suppose I'll be more careful. Do I have time to do another run before my new job starts? Can Tamagotchi Monster survive professional office life? 

Only one way to find out, I suppose.

So for Bub, I think I'll just report when something new and different happens as I'm now busy getting ready for my new job! Sorry for those of you who've come to expect daily reports.

(By the way, "Bub" is short for "Beelzebub")

Bub Day 2: June 26, Wednesday

Bub is a piece of work and a half. 

Me"Let me check your meter." 

Bub: "No." 

Me: *scolds* "Let me check it." 

Bub: "No!" 

Me: *scolds* "Let. Me. Check. It."

Bub: "NO!"

Me: *scolds* "Okay Bub why are you being so difficult?" 

Bub: "Hungry :("

Also, the nightly pranks are cute when they're at times I've not yet gone to sleep, but let me tell you, a noisy bat visit at 5 AM? Terrible.

I liked Stan better.

Bub Day 4: June 28, Friday

Have a bit of a scare when I peek in and see Bub's MP at a full 100!!!

WHOOPS! 

Something tells me he may not survive the office at this rate. 

Deliberately careful attention paid throughout the rest of the day gets his MP back down to 25 before he turns in for sleep at 9 PM. 

Looking forward to his growth tomorrow!

      I can’t believe it’s been more than a year since I last visited/updated my previous Tamagotchi log. I am back, sorta, with some changes to me and my Tamagotchis!
      After a bit of backtracking, I found out that I stopped updating my 20th Anniversary Mix log after the 15th generation, but I kept running it until the 21st generation. I had a habit of downloading and saving all of the sprites during that time. Sadly, I am pretty sure that I stopped doing that since it became a hassle and it didn’t really serve a purpose other than to preserve memories, which is already something that I have done with the log anyways. If I get a cute Tamagotchi in my new generations then I may do this.
      2 months ago, I bought a Sanrio Meets off of Hobby Link Japan. I wasn’t actually thinking of buying it because by then I hadn’t touched my Tamagotchis for a while. At the same time, I really wanted to own a Sanrio Tamagotchi since I missed out on the Sanrio Mix, and I was not going to pay $100+ for it. So in the end, I decided to buy it once it was back in stock with the mindset that if I didn’t use it as much, I could sell it for a bit of profit.
       
      The Sanrio Meets is the first Meets that I have, and probably the only one that I will own. I know that I am super late to the party too, but I would like to start my log nevertheless. I am also very happy that there is also a Tamagotchi Meets App which allows you to connect the device to play games, receive/transfer items and even marry other people’s Tamagotchis! This will also mean that there can be more variety in terms of the offspring which I like very much, as someone with only one Mix and Meets to play with. I think that the additional free items that you can get in the app keeps the Tamagotchi quite lively with new content (like DLC), something that was lacking in, say, the V3 and the Mix (unless you had access to the Mix stations, which I do not as someone outside of Japan).
      My concern with having another Tamagotchi Log is that the content will get quite stale after a while, as seen with my Mix log. I was struggling to add anything new apart from recording each generation’s growth stages and who they married, so please pardon the ‘slow days’ that I predict will happen the longer this log gets. 
       
      As seen with the title, I will be running my 20th Anniversary Mix alongside my Sanrio Meets. I'll also try to include the Meets app and all the cool things that you can get from it. My updates may be not be daily so in that case I will make a summary over what has happened.
       
      I'm looking forward to this new journey!

      I decided after seeing all these logs I should really keep up with it! I take pictures as often as I can when my tama evolves or marries but I would rather start fresh.
      Today my little Aitichi evolved and shes is so adorable. Here is a picture of her. Shes a bit bratty honestly and needs alot of attention.

       
      Before her I had a family of 6 generations, I got sick unfortunately and she died while I was taking care of my serve cold. And as a background of that tree, it was cursed. Those eyes just would never go, and the hat was almost impossible to get rid of. And before she died, I dropped it on concrete at work, my bag decided enough was enough and just dropped it. Its a shame the family tree image is too large for here but another time I'll post it all together for everyone to see.

      Day 1: I received my tamagotchi entama in the mail yesterday, it was the best thing to happen. I inserted the cr2032 in the battery compartment and preformed a reset. I got a sense of childhood from starting it up.
      Then I received the first egg upon waiting, the egg looked like it had hearts on it. It hatched after waiting for a few minutes. I got a cute female young Mametchi named Aiko, I have never seen anything so adorable in such a long time. I decided to play the card match game with my Aiko, turns out i actually like that mini-game. Hopefully I can achieve something with my Mametchi.

      Hey there! I'll be journaling my first Tama On diary. 
      This afternoon I intended to start over a new generation since my teen evolved and I got Gozarutchi *again* due to bad care... And by bad I mean hours of neglect by sleeping in til noon and crazy part time shifts. The ninja hat trait was so persistent through the previous family tree and it wasn't my most favourite.
      BUT I decided I couldn't go through another tamagotchi funeral after the last one (it was too painful tbh)
       
      RIP great-great-grandchildren of Gozarutchi I. He was a weird looking combo but overall sweet boy. 
      So I decided to keep my Gozarutchi II in loving memory of the previous Gozarutchi the I clan.
      Almost as an apology I fed him some curry from Tama Farm which he seemed to enjoy. Then I aimed to marry him off. 
      Mister Goza also caught me off guard doing some paintings action. This was new. It was funny he was frustrated to get the ducks to stand up so he could paint them lol. 

      We went ahead and bought the grand wedding ring. Costed 5000 G so that lucky gal better be saying yes. Our boi is flaming with passion.

      The unforgettable moment awaits...! Without any further delay he heads off to find the girl of his dream... 

      We just got ourselves a Pizza Wife. So long, sad, single-life! Surviving my initial murder intention, my boy is officially in the manhood and properly wife-d. 
      Fast forward the honeymoon we now have a cute custard baby. He does look like a little custard bun. I named him baby Hope. I noticed in the last generation that if I marry a tama with another prominent head-trait, it dominates over the ninja head trait. My Pizza wife does have a pizza head, I wonder if this time that could dominate over the ninja trait.

      I've enjoyed reading the logs I've seen here, and have decided to start my own. I'm focusing on my Tamagotchi ON/Meets--this is primarily a log of each generation. Right now I've started the Fairytale ON, though more will be added.
      Updates should be about every generation, or about every four days. Pictures will be included, of course. :p
       
      Blue Fairytale ON - First Generation
      For my first generation I had a male tama:

      (Unfortunately I didn't discover the contrast setting until a little later.)

      All through his youth, Mametchi had spent a lot of time at the resort daycare playing with his friend, Lovelitchi. After she ruined his proposal by trying to propose to him (twice!) he finally managed to propose to her.

      Naturally, she agreed (after all, she'd just proposed to him twice already).

      And they lived happily ever after.

      (For those wondering why I didn't accept the proposal the first two times: I wanted to wait until Mametchi was at full happiness before marrying him off.)
