Review: Me Her Jyoshi

Lots of pics because for the first time we decided to do the machine twice to try out both courses!
This is a machine with a bit of a grown-up/blogger style on one of the courses with the other being more like regular cute purikura.

First thing I noticed was the lights at the back ceiling, I forgot about them while we were taking pictures so I’m not sure what effect they had but it’s something a little different.
IMGA0078
The machine also has sections marked on the floor, and tells you when to stand in each zone. The white zone is for the close up shots and the green zone for the full length shots.
IMGA0068
The main light is this doughnut shaped ring, it should light up all parts of your face without over-doing it.
IMGA0069
The two courses are “MudaCawa Me” and “OshaCawa Her” Muda means useless in Japanese so… “Uselessly Cute Me”? Maybe it’s short for something else! Osha is short for oshare which means stylish/fashionable so “Stylishly Cute Her”. Basically MudaCawa is softer colours and a cuter style, whereas OshaCawa is stronger colours and a more grown-up style. First we chose OshaCawa.
IMGA0070
You have two eye options on this machine, of course we chose natural!
IMGA0071
The skin tone selector, just the usual five shades.
There are three sections to choose backgrounds from: normal, pattern, and arrange.
IMGA0072
IMGA0073
IMGA0074
Of course the pattern and arrange ones are most interesting!
First you take four square close up shots using the white zone. Then you take two full length shots using the green zone. Again your backgrounds have the same categories.
IMGA0075
IMGA0076
I took a picture of the arrange section but it was too blurred to use, sorry!arrow down 01
Once you’ve taken your six shots you then get the option of taking a picture meant for your mobile or a collage. As you can make specific blog graphics later we chose the collage option. As far as I could see you don’t get to choose the style of collage it gives you one, maybe randomly?
IMGA0079
I really liked this black and white one!
After you do your mobile/collage shot it’s time to go to the graffiti corner. Like a few of the new machines this one has a luggage hook so you can hang your handbag safely. There have been instances of thefts from bags in purikura centres so please be careful!
IMGA0080
First thing you have to do is enter your name, you can only enter using hiragana so have your nickname ready. It does show you the romaji version but you must enter it with hiragana.
IMGA0083
The machine has “one touch” decoration but you only get two options and they aren’t so impressive.
IMGA0084
The name stamps are always nice, although I’d like to see some with a border so they can be seen on any colour. If you need to switch the names around tap the stamp you like then tap the button in the top left with the two hearts reversed. The other button is a “send to back” button.
IMGA0086
IMGA0087
I like this “my stamp” section, I haven’t seen this on a machine since Otome3. You can put little versions of your purikura into the main purikura. The black and white version is really cool. You can change the border colour or flip the pictures.
IMGA0088
For this one you tap the shape you want then place it on the screen, it’ll then make a stamp with the screen shot which you can use on other purikura, be careful because once you take the picture you can’t undo it!
IMGA0089
The stamps, rolling stamps and pens are all pretty standard. it has seasonal stamps too…
IMGA0091
Under the message section you can make your own tape stamp in either Japanese or English with different patterns and colours.
IMGA0098
This section is profile stamps, it has blood type, star signs and labels like “darling” “baby” “twins” etc.
IMGA0100
These doodle-style stamps are sort of cute, not sure about the faces though!
IMGA0101
It has a section for blog stamps too, though some of them are more generic than specifically for blogs.
IMGA0105
Friend stamps…
IMGA0106
Love stamps…
IMGA0103
As well as the normal purikura you can make one graphic for your blog. When you tap the button next to the main screen you get a new set of menus. Different but limited frames, I tried the multiple frames but I couldn’t figure out how to layer the pictures so they didn’t bleed over into the other sections so I made a simpler one!
IMGA0109
You get small versions of your pictures to use.
IMGA0110
And a few blog-related stamps, you also get pens so you can add to it.
IMGA0111
When you have finished your blog graphic tap the button like below and it’ll save it and return you to the regular screen.
IMGA0112
After you finish decorating you can choose your layouts. each person gets to choose their own layout and there is options for four or more people along the top. I like that you can choose a layout that looks like one big sticker or an old style one ready to chop up. You can also choose a layout that includes the collage (red) or not or a layout that includes a big picture that you choose yourself (white).
IMGA0114
After you choose your layout you go outside to the third screen to enter your email and choose which picture you want to get, your blog graphic is also an option here as is getting a picture with no graphics.
IMGA0116

Using the mini-me stamps…

So usually my friend and I take two sets of pictures and while we were deciding which to try she suggested going back in to try the other course! Maybe the staff thought we were weird but I’m sure we aren’t the first girls to do that!
It’s really just the backgrounds that are different, oh and the layout backgrounds if that matters to you. Oshakawa is black and MudaCawa is white.
IMGA0125
IMGA0126
You can see that the colours are much more pastel and muted than the other course.
IMGA0127
IMGA0128
The collage option also follows the colour scheme.
IMGA0129
And the pictures from the MudaCawa course…

I’d like to point out that at 168cm tall plus heels I can (almost) stand up straight in this machine! yay!arrow up 01

    1. If you have a Japanese mobile phone or a smartphone then you should be able to use the website and code on your printout, however there is a time limit so it depends when you took the pictures...

  7. I did purikura on this machine too, but I went to the website and I can't find a place to enter the code :\

    1. I don't know what you are using to try and access but you need to look for "プリ画GET" if you can't see that anywhere it's probably not available from where/how you are accessing it.
