Tokyo Crazy Kawaii Event in Taiwan

Kao-ani.com has got a new category called ‘Cute Events’! Lately I’ve been blogging about events and exhibitions I’ve visited in the Netherlands. But I thought it might be nice to announce cute events around the world. I hope you’ll enjoy the new category and might discover an event that you can visit yourself (*^▽^*).

Today I’d like to introduce you to Tokyo Crazy Kawaii, which will be held this September in Tapei, Taiwan. It’s a special thank you from Japan for the great support Taiwan offered after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Moshi Moshi Kawaii Game

Moshi Moshi Kawaii Mobile Game - Usacolle

I’ve got a soft spot for the pill-shaped Usacolle bunnies, also known as Moshi Moshi Kawaii. So when I stumbled upon their mobile game I just had to try it. At first I was a little scared that it might be too simple or childish, but it’s actually very entertaining!

The game starts with an undressed Usacolle friend. You first mission is to put some clothes on your bunny. So hop over to the capsule machine to get new outfits and accessories in exchange for Usacolle dollars. The ‘complete’ bar next to the machine shows how many items you’ve collected. Reach 100% for a special surprise! The pink arrow will lead you through the different capsule machines. You start with the Fancy Machine and Premium Machine, but along the way you’ll get access to new ones, such as the Mustachio Machine with sports outfits.

Premium coins can be earned by spamming posting Facebook or Twitter messages about the Moshi game or by following Mind Wave on social media. It will get you rare items, such as ninja outfits and a kimono (^▽^).

Dressing up your bunny will raise its friendliness. Once the meter is filled, you’ll earn new levels, friends, capsule machines and bunny colors.

The hot spring is where you’ll earn your Usacolle dollars. It’s up to you to undress the Usacolle friends that come down the slide, before they dip into the hot spring. The game ends if they fall into the water with their clothes on or if the time runs out. During the game bubbles appear with bonus points or extra time. At higher levels the friends will come from different directions and in higher quantity, which makes the game more challenging. Good news for big spenders; earning Usacolle dollars goes quite quickly!

At the home screen -or Usacolle plaza- you get to see your bunny pals hopping around. You can also drag them in various directions, which they seem to love, or take their picture.

The verdict

What makes Moshi Moshi Kawaii stand out is the wide variety of outfits. They range from regular clothes, to a bullet train outfit, rockabilly hair and even a goatee (O_o). All in all it’s a very nice game that you can play quickly in between your study or work. The description said that there are over 150 outfits to collect, so I guess it will keep you entertained for quite a while. Plus the bunnies are quite relaxing to look at (^ω^).

The app is free, the only catch is a banner to the Mindwave store at the bottom of the screen, which didn’t really bother me.
