I forgot to say before, but using the time machine gadget can also take doraemon to the past instead and change his form once again!
Also, I've said before how characters will pop up on the screen and ask for help, and clicking the pocket icon helps them and adds to the DMP meter. I keep forgetting to take pictures of that, since each character has their own sprite and everything. So far all the characters I've seen do this were Nobita, Shizuka, Gian, Suneo, Sewashi, and Dorami. I did get a pic of dorami the last time this happened, but I gotta remember to take more pics of this thing lmao
Today I got this new gadget that turns doraemon into a ghost... pretty ominous considering this is a tamagotchi LMAO it reminds me a lot of a death screen, which is... oddly fitting considering the rough time I've had with this thing so far
So far this is the best run I've had of this tama, doraemon's been around for 5 days now, so maybe I'll finally have him last a full week. I'm not sure if it's actually a factor or just a coincidence, but I noticed that feeding him more dorayaki and keeping his weight high has made his stats drop less frequently? Usually I tried to keep his weight at the lowest possible (100kg for this tama) since usually that's what most tamagotchis want you to do, but slacking off and feeding him snacks instead of playing games has seemed to make him a lot less needy... not sure if that's actually how this thing is programmed or if I'm just getting lucky now, but it's interesting.
The doramitchi has shipped from japan and is now on its way to me, hoping I can get that by the end of this week maybe? Also, it's kind of a funny coincidence that I'm running these tamas right now, just the other day netflix japan dropped an english dub of stand by me doraemon 2 out of nowhere. I watched it (and rewatched the first one) last night, it was pretty good! I really recommend them, it's a good introduction to the series if you know nothing about doraemon, as it's sort of like a new adaptation of several stories from the manga. Ironically, I actually got so distracted watching the movies that I completely forgot about the doraemontchi and didn't turn the lights off in time... oops lol
