If you don't know what a Shimeji is it's a dude that runs around your desktop and does absolutely nothing.

DOWNLOAD: [link]

To use you just have to extract the winrar thingys and click the little TV application.

This has 74 pictures other than the common 46 so PLEASE ENJOY. I do plan on making more but these take a while so whateves.

When I try to use the thing on the taskbar, all that shows up is a bunch of boxes and no text? My computer can't read the font or something. Or is it just a bunch of symbols? I don't know because it's just boxes!

Hi! Is this free to use? If so, may I have permission to install it? It looks so cool. :)

I'm probably going to sound stupid right now but... how do you download Java 6? I can't find it on the website.

i found the java 6 downloads, but the instructions say you need to have 32 bit? but they don't seem to have a 32 bit on they're website. all the "how to download shimeji" videos on youtube say to just download java but whenever i do it, it pops up with an error that says "a java exeption has occurred"

You don't need Java 6 you just need at least Java 6, I have Java 8. You just need 32 bit Java, specifically. (which can be tricky if you already have 64 bit Java)

Well, that's how it is with the Shimejis I use, anyway. Could be different, dunno.

Well you dont have to download java 6. My method is using a shimeji that has the file "Shimeji-ee" (Shimeji-ee should work perfectly without java 6.) and copy and paste another shimejis "Conf" file and its images into it.  If you like, I could post a tutorial if I totally confused you.

help? It won't let me download it directly from the download link because it directs the file to my windows media player like a video and the winrar download directs me to the winrar website. Can you send me a zip file please?
