It’s cute how it’s always flapping its mouth.

If you talk to her too much every day, she’s going to think you’re no longer just friends and she’ll become cold towards you. But if you talk to her too little you’re going to make her cry, so watch out for that, too.

Sounds like way more of a bother than I’d expected.

Where’d you find it? I want one, too.

It’s recommended that you get one as a set with an Okai-chan.

It’s a nuisance how she’s timid at first but when she gets used to you, she’ll start acting spoiled.
9: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 00:25:46.51 0
She actually grows seaweed as her forelocks so you can harvest some from her every morning.
10: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 00:27:26.79 0
Sometimes she says things like “come on!” when she wants to be fed, so at times like that you have to remember to slap her so she doesn’t grow up to be too spoiled.

I used to have one, too, but I threw it in the ocean when it became an adult.

It runs away when you try to talk to it, and it gets lonely and starts to cry when you leave it alone. What a bothersome animal.
37: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 02:40:29.19 0
Not many people know this, but you don’t necessarily have to raise it underwater. We keep ours in a birdcage.

It can gain weight unexpectedly fast, so make sure not to give it too much to eat.
42: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 02:45:06.09 0
It will die if you don’t pull its lower lip once a day, so be careful about that.
44: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 06:16:34.38 0
That’s way too bothersome. (laughs)
46: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 07:16:23.70 0
It sometimes goes out to get things from the McDonald’s morning menu even though no one asked it to, so be careful.
47: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 07:38:16.42 0
Yeah, if you take proper care of it, it grows up to be spoiled. Our Nakajima is like that, too.

It’s funny how it starts moving about all confused in its water tank when it hears the chirps of a Tsunkubird.

Never put one in the same cage with a Maimi.
53: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 07:48:59.99 0
The other day I went out looking to buy one but was surprised to find none. Then I noticed it’d just gone over to mingle with the Berryfish. (laughs)
54: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 07:50:09.58 0
When it goes “Say! Come on!“, be sure to respond to it no matter how bothersome it may be. Otherwise it’ll get sulky.
56: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 08:54:17.19 O
When you put a Maimi near it, it’ll start to camouflage herself to resemble Maimi to the point where it becomes difficult to tell them apart.
57: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 09:05:17.55 0
If it hides and refuses to come out, start talking about something exciting near the place where its hiding and it’ll be all “what’s that, what’s that?!” and come out by itself.

It’s such a bother to get the license for keeping one as a pet. That girl at the government office, Yajima? What the hell is her deal anyway? She’s so thorough about asking what you plan to do with it.
61: XXXXXXXXXXXX 2013/08/18(日) 10:24:04.41 0
It’s annoying how it’s always asking for hamburgers or Chinese food. Even though it’s nothing more than a Nakajima…
63: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 10:43:35.12 0
Please don’t release any more Nakajimas into the wild.

Thank you all for your advice. She was getting annoyingly loud so I gave her some snacks and now she’s fast asleep. Just one more thing: how do I determine if it’s a male or female Nakajima?
65: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 11:40:58.64 0
Didn’t you know? 99% of all Nakajimas are female.
68: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 11:50:13.13 0
When a Nakajima transforms into a male, it becomes a Yaji.

Ours is shouting “yurushite nyan nyan nyaaan!” all the time… I wonder if it’s okay? Plus, it’s face is really pale, almost like an albino… could this be a new species?
75: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 15:06:35.83 0
That’s probably a Momoko from the Berry family. It should look completely different from Nakajima of the Cute family.

Thanks! Man… and I kinda thought its legs were strangely short, but I guess this explains it… orz

Mine seemed as if it was exhausted by the hot summer, so I played it this song “Dance de Bakoon!” by a group called °C-ute and it began moving the lower half of its body.

While we’re on the subject, can someone tell me how you take care of a Kumai-chan? I almost bought one at the pet store the other day, but I decided to go for a Nakajima after all.
83: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 20:50:33.57 0
Keeping a Kumai-chan in a Japanese-style house is impossible. I can’t even believe you found a Japanese pet store that had one on display to be honest.
84: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 21:15:29.33 0
You’d need a multistory mansion style house with an atrium to be able to keep a Kumai-chan.
85: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/08/18(日) 22:33:52.54 0
When I bought my Kumai-chan, I had no idea it was going to get that big. With tears flowing down my eyes, we had to go the forest where I then released it at the Rock River. It traumatized me for life.
Henkka: Man, keeping Hello! Project members as pets sounds like such a pain in the ass. Maybe it’s best to just stick with holding captive children not involved with the entertainment industry.

haha, i think i would rather have a Momoko in this case as well… seems like a much more interesting pet and dont have to worry about constantly picking up fast food wrappers and containers lol… Just have to make sure u cover the cage at night so she goes to sleep, wouldnt want to hear my Momoka talking all night
Hah, when I read in my RSS “So I’ve started keeping a Nakajima as a pet. Any advice as to things I should look out for?” and thought it was from your other blog, I thought “Oh, God, this guy has been in Japan for less than a month and he’s already gone insane.”
Thank you for translating this hilarious thread, though. :D
It’s embarrassing. The Kudo I picked out was the wrong gender and I’m too ashamed to return it to the store. I’ll probably keep her like I did with my Yossie.
my kame still alive after 10 years
this is the longest pet I can keep alive since 2003
she definitely will outlive me
even though she’s super slow she’s super cute
I really love her when she’s embarrassed and hide inside her shell
>> I used to have one, too, but I threw it in the ocean when it became an adult.
Man, I hate my country, I’ve been looking all over but I can’t find a Kudo D:
I even made a whole one piece themed room for it >.<
I heard that if you raise a Fukumura in an apartment it’ll grow up to be nice and bouncy.
i once kept a nicolas kage, but it got killed by wild bumblebees. *SOB
Is it okay for a riho to drink cider? D:
because my riho had been drinking alot of ciders and then it’s walking suddenly becomes very sloppy D:
OK, BEST POST EVEEEEEEEEEEER (almost) xD Hilarious, hilarious *shivering from laughing too much*
I want a thread like this for all the Berrikyuu members so bad… I want the whole Berry family and also an Okai as a souvenir. But I’ve got some tips for taking care of a Momoko and a Kumai, that’s good lol.
