24/2/2016: Well... It has been an intersting week. Yesterday Masukutchi got sick and has entered the demanding stages of life, and today Zukitchi was sick as well. They are both one year apart so it makes sense. I am still disapointed that I didn't get the secret characters, but I will try again next time. I will be taking a break from trying for the Japanese secret characters for a short time as I will be hatching Morino Tamagotch in the coming days.
I was chatting with Shawn this evening about the loss of Mimitchi and he asked how many Mimitchi's I have raised on this Tama. Upon looking at my character history, I see that I have hatched my yellow/blue Tama 10 times, and 9 of those times I have gotten Mimitchi. The other time I actually had to reset it because I had missed a discipline when it was Tonmarutchi and didn't want to risk not getting Mimitchi. So yeah, this is my 11th time hatching my Mimitchi Tamagotchi and will be my 10th Mimitchi when I get him back. :)
