Time to talk about our recent companion… Toro. Toro is a guest character from another popular Japanese series Dokodemo Issyo. He is a cat who dreams to be a human. Toro and his friends have recently been on the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable in a series called Mainichi Issyo, where they discuss recent topics or up coming games on a daily basis. Mainichi Issyo is only available on the Japanese Playstation Network and is free to play or download for both the Playstation 3 and the Playstation Portable. The extras for the game is expensive though…

Just like before when the Mainichi Issho lobby hats were released…
Toro is currently only available from the Japanese Playstation Store.
Available from the latest update [Ver. 08103001 or later] and costs 500 yen as are the other add-on characters for Mingol 5.

Despite Toro and his friends aren’t hard to model there is only Toro from the cast of Dokodemo Issyo. I think it would have been nice if you could use Kuro for the 6P costume since Toro and friends don’t actually talk, but instead they squeak and make noises. Toro comes his original look then 5 clothed variations…

Toro is a Novice with great starting stats… His character type is on a similar level to Suzuki. With Toro’s loyalty maxed and Infinity equiped you should have some pretty decent stats:

  • 246y Power [Base: 232y]
  • Control Lv. A [Base: B]
  • Impact Lv. A [Base: S]
  • Spin Lv. A [Base: B]
  • Side Spin Lv. E [Base: D]  
  • Rain- : [Base: Rough+]
  • Straight Shots
  • Though being on the same level as Suzuki, he lacks quite abit of power… Toro is probably not a replacement for Suzuki but more of a replacement for Jasmine or Chris. His swing is hard to see for the 90~100% due to his small size and the lack of zooming for his character. Also because his head is so big and his clubs are so small even if you change the camera angle you are dealing with a bad view for either power or impact. Front view can’t see power because his head is in the way, back view can’t see impact because his leg is in the way… Angled view works, but changing the camera everytime you want to take a shot becomes abit tedious.

    Toro’s swing timing is similar to Jasmine and Chris, so if you are going for 100% it is not much of a problem. However using Toro for awhile will yeild the same problem as using Kratos for awhile… you lose the ability to hit properly with other characters for a few holes once you get used to their strange swing animations.

    He is great fun to use, and isn’t an annoying player in stroke because he can’t make much noise… Also has quite a few intros and little combinational fanfares with different caddies so is very fun to watch when you are playing as him. He is worth the purchase but not a must have character… 😉

    In a few more hours maintenance will be complete… no where to be seen on the PlayStation Store yet… but Toro comes with six different costumes… He is a novice character so the stats will be somewhere near Chris in distance.

    Update [08103001]:

    • Toro Character Added.*
      * To use him you will need to purchase him from the Playstation Store.
      Playstation Store: みんなのGOLF 5 追加キャラクター「トロ」使用権:500円

    • Minnnya No Putter Golf Mini Game Added.*
      * To use it you will need to purchase the item from the in game store.

    Will continue later with a review about Toro…

    Alright we are now reaching the Third Month of the Mingol and Mainichi Issho Festival Collaboration… as predicted Toro will be joining the characters of Minna no Golf 5 as a playable golfer. Actually they already hinted that during one of the Mainichi Issho News sessions.

    Downloadable Content for Mingol 5 and Mainichi Issho.

    Toro will be a Beginner/Novice character and costs the same as the other downloadable characters… 500 yen. On the other side of the coin, Mainichi Issho will be getting Minnya no Putter Golf. Which is Minigolf with your cat avatar against Jasmine for 600 yen. For more details about Minnya no Putter Golf you will need to read the full post…

    Well this is probably a first… I was bored and wondered what was the whole userbar thing. Incase you have seen these but didn’t know what they were called… A userbar is a small image placed usually within someone’s signiture on a online forum or website. I decided that since there is no userbars related to this game we play I went ahead and made one…

    I might make more later but this was more of an experimental thing. Kind of stuck on the wording for the little text… There was a few things I was going to use and they were:

    • Mingolfer
    • Mingol Club Member
    • Community Member
    • Mingol Pro

    Well some of the other lines was getting too long… so I just went with this to experiment. I guess the time could have been well spent on other stuff such as updating this site, but maybe leave it for another time. If you would like to use this on other forums or want to suggest other ideas leave a reply so I know… This code should make things easier:

    風速表示なし No Wind Speed
    残り距離表示なし No Remaining Distance

    Enjoy them… 😉

    Update this later…

    Check the Event Rankings to see if you have won a Totomaru Pet or the Ototo Head Prize. If you have top 10 score for any course or a placement that ends in a zero you will get the prize, example: 20th or 50th rank.
