Animal Crossing New Leaf: Days 109-111

Stalk Market

Joan wasn’t particularly kind on Sunday. I bought 2,000 turnips for 99 bells apiece. 頑張ってね!

Day 110

AM: 120 Bells
PM: 69 Bells

Day 111

AM: 64 Bells
PM: TBD

I’m getting worried already…

Sunday, Day 109

I didn’t get to play much on Sunday. There was too much drama and intrigue trying to get the cops to haul off my (literally) crazy downstairs neighbor. But she should be gone for at least a few months now.

Nook had the castle in stock so I finally splurged and ordered it. He’ll be putting it up overnight.

Day 110

Spring! OMG Spring! I walked outside. It was February 25 and the snow had melted allowing my clean spring grass to emerge.

I sold my defunct bingo card to a reluctant Lisa at R. Parkers for 120 bells.

Lillian’s Petition

Lillian wanted me to collect signatures to form a crash diet club. Though I’m concerned about the body images of my villagers I agreed anyway. I almost forgot to go over to Jisuna village and collect the 6 signatures. Sadly Kokuto’s villagers seem to have the same bad body image as mine because they all signed.

New Town Projects

I’ve had a few townies say they want me to put items in lately. I haven’t added any, but I’m thinking about putting some of the illumination items in in the near future.

Illumination tower. I feel like lining them up and making an air strip

Day 111

I got to play this morning riding the Caltrain. I almost feel Japanese except that I think the Caltrain is a shabby ancient approximation of a Japanese train and I never get street passes while riding it…

Oh! Speaking of Japan. My husband and I purchased tickets to Japan yesterday, so it’s official. We’ll be there from April 2-16. I don’t know where we’ll be yet because we haven’t booked hotels, but we plan to travel around.

Obviously I plan on visiting 7 Eleven to get the two items that will be out while I’m there, but I was a pokénerd before I was an Animal Crossing junkie and I’ve already looked into what Pokémon are being distributed at the time as I intend to hit up at least one Pokémon Center. It looks like they’ll be giving away Junichi Masuda’s Deoxys and if I stop at Nagoya’s Pokémon Center, a shiny level 99 Magikarp is given away because of the Pokémon Center’s reopening.

I’m sure I’ll do more than revel in Nintendo geekdom while in Japan, but I’m still excited about that aspect of my visit.

I have two villagers who want me to get them stringfish! I don’t think it’s going to happen, but I agreed to it. Foolish me. I should just tell them to fish out their own stringfish.

Nelson loves everything about Stringfish, even the way they smell. So naturally he wants me to get him one.

There's going to be a meteor shower tonight. Anyone wanna come over and see it?

Redd’s Gallery

Yay! The March issue of Nintendo Dream has very clear pictures of counterfeit vs. real paintings and fortunately I had it in my backpack to consult while on the train. I thought I already had the original he was selling, but after perusing my museum it seems I don’t. Yay! I love new art. If only he had more than one legitimate painting so I could buy them with other townies…I wonder if I raise my feng shui…

  1. You’re so lucky that you get to go to Japan! JDubz and I are super jealous. Any chance you can pick up a spare shiny Magikarp for me?? 😛

    So glad you finally got the Lighthouse in your Public Works list! I’m guessing you’re gonna do that one first. I’m finally fundraising for the Cafe, so yay!!!

    I was so surprised/excited that spring has sprung in ACNL. The fish and bugs won’t change much until March tho right?

  2. Woo Japan trip! Nagoya Pokemon Center is awesome. There’s one right in the Osaka Station too. I stayed with a friend in Nagoya and took day trips to Kyoto and Osaka from there, but I can recommend The B Roppongi in Tokyo. It’s convenient to a lot of the cool areas (Harajuku, Shibuya, Meiji Shrine) and you HAVE to eat at Pintokona in Roppongi Hills. It’s at the bottom of the tall escalators and they do that conveyor belt sushi. It was the best sushi I’ve ever had.

    Also, if you visit Skytree, plan for a lot more time than you’ll think you need. When I was there they were handing out time slots to go up the tower 3 hours in advance and I couldn’t wait that long so I didn’t go up. There is fantastic shopping in the many levels on the way up to the base of the Skytree.

    Also, make sure you order your JR pass for the trains if you haven’t already. Ahh I’m so excited for you. I’m DYING to go back! I’m no Japan expert, but let me know if you’re looking for any other recommendations.

  3. Congrats on finally buying the tickets! 🙂 I shall be in Tokyo for a day or two in April (Disneyland 30th anniversary) but I will be back home after. Did I mention I live in Nagoya? That’s the Pokecenter in Oasis21!

    I do hope you have a great time here in Japan. Get to planning! xD

  4. Oh I forgot to mention, your turnip prices are going to suck this week as you had high sell price turnips last week. :/

  5. @Gluxbox Believe it or not I didn’t put in the lighthouse. I have to think about where I want it. Today I put a donation box down for an illumination arch in front of my fountain. The fountain area needs some TLC. I’m gonna try and spruce it up before just getting rid of it. 😛

    And no, no new fish and stuff until next month.

    @Alison Thanks for the recommendations and advice. We’re definitely getting our rail passes soon and I’m looking into that hotel. It doesn’t look bad at all.

    @Zen We should get coffee or something. 🙂 Planning is going slowly. I’m just happy we have tickets so we’re forced to plan. We’ve *almost* gone to Japan a few times in the last year.

  6. Hello. I live in Spain, despite the language I follow your blog regularly. Also I have a blog where I’m making a guide New Leaf Animal Crossing. I have a guide as Japanese and Japanese and you do not know each other, I would ask if I pudieses please translate a small scan.Regards and keep it up.
