My 4U+ arrived while I was holiday, which was nice to arrive home to! I immediately started it up and, wow. It's confusing, after years of the iD L. Nothing is in the right place! How am I meant to figure any of this out? (Fortunately, I found a guide.)

This is really odd. But it feels good, it's a nice weight and I love the aesthetics (Pearl Purple Anniversary Edition). Annoyingly, I popped the faceplate off (because I can) and it is no longer such a snug fit. I don't appear to have snapped anything getting it off, but it's slightly loose over the 'A' button now, so it sort of squeaks qhen you depress it. @_@ I may put some blu-tac or such underneath the faceplate. Just irksome that it happened so soon (it's the P's scratched screen all over again!).

It's very different, but so far so good. I'm liking how the conversations scroll now... If only I could understand them! I think this particular model is going to take a little getting used to. I am liking the inclusion of a Latin alphabet for inputting though.

So yesterday I hatched a Yuraratchi, who since became a Rionetchi. I have no idea who I am going to go for; random, I guess? This is also the first of my four Tamagotchis where my first hatch has been a girl instead of a boy!

I'm looking forward to my Tama becoming an adult so that I can explore all the options more thoroughly. I've also yet to try all the games, weirdly. Normally that's the first thing I do! Maybe it's because I have so much variety, what with my three other models, downloads and pierces. I have actually already downloaded one game onto my 4U+; Ice Castle.

Talking of downloads, good Lord what is with NFC?! I was looking forward to having something that worked better than the irDA and my P, but nope. NFC seems even more unstable. Fleh. Still, I've put two new Tamagotchis (I can't recall who off the top of my head), their favourite items, a couple of wallpapers, a game and some toys. It might be a pain but it does work, which means I have access to more than just the vanilla 4U+. (Actually, I was in two minds about getting a 4U+ until I found out my phone has compatible NFC. I haven't played with the Tama enough yet to say either way, but I loved the addition of downloads on my iD L and P and given that the 4U/+ is lacking in content/more download heavy, I felt I needed to get the App working somehow or not bother.)

So far? It's interesting. No regrets though. It does look awesome. Definitely glad I paid a little extra for the anniversary faceplate. I'm also (at some point) going to have a go at making some covers for my Tamas, and I plan on putting a small blue heart charm on the 4U+ cover to mirror the faceplate.

Right. I think I need more Gotchipoints so I can buy a nicer wallpaper.

I think I'm starting to get used to this Tamagotchi a bit more now, although I've needed the help of a lot of guides! I don't know if it's that this Tama isn't as simple as the iD L or P or if it's just that it's both different and in Japanese that's throwing me.

Anyway, earlier today I evolved a Meloditchi! Yay! I have also managed to figure out two of her Clover Leaves, both download items (I'm assuming you can complete the Tama without downloads?); the Moon Sherbet and Sakura Dress. I'm guessing the third will be an item.

I was also playing around with the school function today (after buying the Makeup Box and Study Set; Meloditchi now has the Sewing skill!

Hmm, what else. Not sure. Nothing has grown on the Farm yet, although I water it every day. I also unlocked Encounter Street, but as I am not yet ready to marry Meloditchi off, I m avoiding it for now.

I couldn't figure out what Meloditchi's third clover leaf might be from the built in items, so I downloaded Melody Violin; my boyfriend also suggested I download Fluffy Purse. Turns out he has good intuition, as that is also one of Meloditchi's favourite items! The built in Ramen food also seems to be a favourite, but by that point I'd already got three clover leaves, so now I'm just waiting for her to get the fourth.

I managed to grow what appears to be Chocolates on the farm, too, and am now trying to get her the Cooking skill.

I've not been using my 4U+ for a while as the batteries had supposedly run out; however, when I went to change them this morning I accidentally hit the reset button and it seemed to sort itself out without putting in new batteries. Guess it's similar to the glitch on the P's?

Anyway, I'm trying to get the Personality Stage for Meloditchi before I marry her off, which seems to require going to the Park. Guess that's the plan then!

I've also bought a new faceplate for this Tama; I think it's a custom made one. It's a blue background with pink cherry blossoms and it's beautiful. Can't wait for it to arrive! (I've also bookmarked a couple of official Tamagotchi faceplates that I may purchase with next month's pay check).

My new cherry blossom faceplate arrived today and it gorgeous! I love it! (Even if I did pay extra to get the Anniversary Faceplate, sigh). There's a couple more I want; I think they're called Purple Gothic and Purple Lace? Dunno, but there's two official purple coloured ones that I think I'm going to buy next pay day. I'd also like to order some custom ones at somepoint; got three ideas currently. Bleh, I will be a poor woman because of these Tamas (the faceplates don't even do anything!)

I haven't touched my 4U+ in aaaages. It's mostly because the M!X came out shortly after I bought mine and, well. I wanted in on the new craze; it was the first time I'd bought a Tamagotchi when it came out rather than years after (well, unless you count my Connexion from ten years ago), so I wanted to join in with the community spirit. It was odd not having resources online to refer to, as no one knew what was happening with the M!X!

Anyway. I recently bought some new faceplates for my 4U+; neither of the ones I previously mentioned though. I now have the official Galaxy one, plus two custom ones; a black one with an owl charm and a pastel multi-coloured one that's Wonderland inspired.

So I thought I'd fire up the 4U+ again; I still wanted to try and get the Castle Garden (over 1000 NFC connections) and try and get the Oyaji Bromide so that I could get OyajiMelodytchi.

I realised yesterday that rather than manually bumping my Tama (tedious work), I could just leave my phone unlocked with the Tama sat on top in silence; it just went on a connecting loop! Sure enough, this afternoon I finally got the Castle Garden! Hooray! Still no sign of the NFC Slots game though, sigh. I have noticed that if I change the dates around, I only seem to get the NFC Quiz game on days ending with a 5 (5th, 15th and 25th); so maybe I need to change the time for the Slots? 0 days (10th, 20th, 30th) don't seem to do anything, nor do 1 days (1st, 11th, 21st), although I haven't tried the 31st?

I guess I still need to have a bit of a play. Hohum. It's a little irksome, as I'd actually quite like to raise another character but, ah well. That's what the other Tamas are for, I guess!

It's the 3rd! Not sure if it's every 3 day (3rd, 13th, 23rd) or every third day (3rd, 6th, 9th, etc.) but either way I've cracked it! Hooray! I then just set my Tama up to cycle through connections until I got the Oyaji Bromide as I was too good at playing the slots myself. When I checked after half an hour, I'd got three! Whelp! Bit like buses, eh?

Anyway, I've tried playing with the Oyaji Bromide ten tmes and chatting to Oyajitchi at the park, but to no avail. I'm guessing it's because Melodytchi is still Muse Melodytchi, so I'm now trying to get her happiness down and trying again.

I've also switched up the wallpaper and icon background to match the Galaxy faceplate (before I had it all set up to match the Anniversary faceplate. It looks all snazzy now!

There are some downsides to the 4U/+ not being very needy! As previously mentioned, I wanted to try to get Oyamelojitchi (I had wanted to get her before I put the 4U+ on hiatus, but was getting frustrated by the tedium of trying to get the slots and over 1,000 connections; I hadn't at the time realised that the slots only appeared on certain dates or how to 'macro' my bumps), but that first meant getting rid of Muse Meloditchi. To revert back from Muse Meloditchi, her happiness needs to drop below 60%... Which takes hours from 100% on the 4U+. On more than one occasion I forgot that I was waiting for it to drop and would play a game or two, only to suddenly realise that would put her happiness back up! Sigh.

Eventually her happiness dropped below 60%, so I headed over to the park to chat with Oyajitchi and then began to play with the Oyajitchi Bromide. Uuuuunfortunately, that put Meloditchi's happiness back up to 80% and she became Muse Meloditchi again. Urgh. So I had to start the whole process again! I actually, accidentally, left her awake over night and woke up to find her happiness was at about 40%, which was serendipitous. I took her back to the park and played with the Oyajitchi Bromide again, being sure to check her happiness levels on a regular basis. As an aside, I had played with the Oyajitchi Bromide four times before she became Muse Meloditchi again, but I had to play with the item the full ten times today; I guess turning into one Post Adult Stage 'clears' the actions needed for the other one?

Aaaaanyway, eventually, today, I finally got Oyamelojitchi! Hooray! And her special animations was so worth the hassle; it was hilarious!

I'll keep her for a few days I think, but I have now finally achieved both goals I wanted before I put the 4U+ down the first time, which means I can now play it freely again! I'm still only on generation one, it's nuts!

I also didn't realise until earlier today, but Post Adult Stages sometimes have different Clover Leaves; apparently one of Oyamelojitchi's is Dumpling. Maybe I'll try and find all the Clover Leaves for both Post Adult Forms before I marry her off; not that I need too, as I've already got her to TamaTomo level, but it'll be fun and good for the records!

I know that I previous said that I would keep Meloditchi around until I figured out her Post-Adult/Personality Stage Clover Leaves; however, that seemed to prove difficult as nothing set off the 'happy' animation when I made Melody Muse eat or play with anything. I'm wondering if, unlike previous models, once they have their TamaTomo they no longer show the happy/heart animation when using a favourite item.

Anyway, there's zero information about Melody Muse's Clover Leaves, or, if there is, I can't find it. Irksomely, the guide book lists both Meloditchi and Oyamelojitchi's Clover Leaf items but doesn't have Melody Muse's (as she's a 4U+ exclusive and the guide book is for the 4U), and the binder (which is for both the 4U and 4U+) lists three of Meloditchi's Clover Leaf items but none for the two Personality Stages... Sigh. So I have decided that is a project for another day; I'll raise another Meloditchi and turn her into Melody Muse before I have any of her Clover Leaves. Sorted!

Anyway. I married Meloditchi off to Kikitchi on Encounter street. Took a while, but the dates they went on were great! Sometimes they went for a drive in a car, other times to the beach (and annoyed the sun and crabs by too many PDAs! Hah! Eventually though, I was left with a baby Gaotchi who quickly became a Tendotchi.

My boyfriend was having a play with the Tama and a little thought bubble came up about building blocks; I then had to explain to him that you could train your Tama as a child and then they wouldn't poo on the floor, need bathing or have to tidy up. This then caused me to have a little internal debate as to whether or not I should train this Tama, just so I could see the difference. I eventually decided to train him. Only I didn't. I forgot to pause my Tama two days in a row, meaning I cam home from work to a starving, bored and very ill Tendotchi. Then on the second day, after healing him, he (rather unsurprisingly) became a Spaceytchi. So that was that. I now have a filthy beastie, unlike his mother.

I'm actually quite glad to have got Spaceytchi; sometimes a bad care Tama is harder to get than a good care one! Plus, I've always thought he's actually really cute but I've been unable to get him on my iD LE (as I never seem to get Furutsupantchi and thus can't get any Tamas evolved from Happabouyatchi) and I never tried on my P's. So, yes! Makes a change! Plus, I have everything all space themed to match my Galaxy faceplate, so it sort of makes sense!

Talking of having everything space themed, the wallpaper I have looks like some sort of space station or futuristic living room; it's really difficult to see when it's dirty! It doesn't seem to go brown like on previous models; one time there were cobwebs in the corners and another there were piles of bin bags. But the wallpaper is kind of cluttered and blue, so I actually didn't notice them for a while, huh!

I managed to find two of Spaceytchi's Clover Leaves; Jumbo Steak and Natta de Coco (I had to look up what that was!). I then turned him into Shiny Spaceytchi, but decided I didn't like how he looked, so decided to stop finding his Clover Leaves so that he wouldn't be saved in the notebook like that. Unfortunately I have all the worst luck with this Tama at the moment; I fed him Soba which isn't Spaceytchi's favourite but is Shiney Spaceytchi's... And by this point I already had the fourth/48 hour Clover Leaf.

So I now have Shiney Spaceytchi in my notebook. Ah well.

Now I'm just trying to get King Spaceytchi, which I think is obtained the same way as Melody Muse. Wish me luck!
