The name of the machine translates into "Let's become beautiful women!" and it's focus is on the lighting set-up as far as I can make out.
The lighting is one big multi-faceted light. It doesn't cover as much of the booth as Lumi3 but all the different angles of the light means you get coverage all over.
It uses double screens, the one under the lens shows you yourselves taking the pictures and all of the options are done on the screen to the right.
Your two course options are 'Sweet' and 'Colorful'. Supposedly the light changes tints according to your course, orange for sweet and blue for colourful but I either didn't notice that or don't remember it. We chose the sweet option. All the frames and colours on the sweet course are more subdued, pastel colours whereas the colourful course has brighter, vivid colours. A few of the frame options overlap with just brighter colours on the colorful course, but most of the frames are different. The sweet frames have gentler themes and cuter graphics, the colorful course has more 'pop' graphics and some real pictures. You also have portrait and landscape options.
The various frames include calendar versions which some people like but I don't particularly care for!
This machine has a nice flash option that it doesn't really brag about but I think it should. You can make one of your pictures into a flash clock graphic. Select the picture you want, and the clock you want.
Your picture will print on the sheet as normal but if you get that one sent to your phone it will be a working clock that you can set as the screen saver on your phone. As I have an iPhone it doesn't work, but a regular Japanese phone will.
There are some nice stamps on this machine, it has quite a few real-looking 'deco' style stamps if you want blinged out purikura (I do!) The cream ones on the top left look cute with sweets (candy) stamps.

There's also a location stamp where you can choose stamps based on your prefecture, the stamps have something that that prefecture is famous for. For example, Shizuoka has green tea.
|Choose your prefecture...|
|...and get your stamp!|
Some of the stamps are arranged by theme, so you have small stamps message stamps and nameplates under one tab, which is nice if time is ticking away!
Another things this machine has, though not unique, is sparkly hair spray. It's really cute and is supposed to only go onto your hair so your hair gets pretty and sparkly. Unfortunately it doesn't detect blonde/light hair very well, brunettes shouldn't have any worries and I guess for redheads it depends on how light your hair is. This also applies to the colour hair spray, it usually only changes the part of my hair in shadow, which is a shame because I'd like to see how I look with pink or blue hair!
There's always the wig stamp option, which does have a pink setting. However getting it to look right on your head would require tweaking with the tilt options and the sizes are set rather than the slider that some other machines have.
And just to wrap up here are some of the message stamps
All in all, it's quite a nice machine but with nothing really outstanding about it. Having said that there's nothing much to complain about either. There's no full length pictures or iPhone support but that's about all.
And how did the pictures come out? Well, only two were cute enough to put up really!
