Today I played Doubutsu no Mori, and the first thing I noticed was that the grass was green! The snow has melted away, and spring is here.
I enjoy all seasons in the game (and in real life, too!). I’m sad to see the snow melt, but it does look really pretty in the springtime. Anyway, before I could do anything else, Kenta ran passed me extremely quickly, stopped in front of another house, then kept running! It was really bizarre behavior. I decided to talk to him and see what was up. He seemed happy to see me at first, then threw a temper tantrum because I wouldn’t buy a kiddie wardrobe from him. He ended up giving it to me for free, then stomped around angrily.
Moving on from that weird encounter, I opened up my mail. I got one from Tanukichi that I had trouble translating at first, then I realized that he was telling me that his store had expanded! I ran over to check it out. It’s nice having a bigger selection!
On a side note, I want to mention that all of my flowers I planted by the store are back in bloom. This confirms my earlier theory that I had about the flowers losing their petals in the winter and coming back into bloom in the spring. That’s a neat touch that’s not in any of the localized games here.
After selling some fossils and other random goods I had, I noticed something weird about my inventory screen. I had a bag of Bells and only about 22,000 Bells in my pocket. I tried to combine the two, but it said that I could only carry 50,000 Bells at a time! This is a huge difference from all the other Animal Crossing games, where you can have 99,999 Bells in your pocket. Definitely different.
I made my way around town, saying hello to everyone. I also met up with my new neighbor, Snow (Chevre) the goat! I’m not sure how much I like her, though. She kept calling me rude!
When I was done saying hello to everyone, pulling weeds, and digging up stuff, I headed over to the post office. There, I paid off my house loan! Yay for me!
Of course, I then went to Tanukichi and promptly asked him to upgrade my house. I’ll be in debt again tomorrow!
I finished up my day by doing a little fishing, then saved my game. See ya!
