Hello! I'm in need of advice: I want to start my own Animal Crossing blog! What should I do in order to begin? (Besides making an account, haha)

It all depends on what you want to do and/or offer.

I don’t post a lot lately but my initial focus was on photographing and reviewing ACNL related items (mainly magazines). Which was a little unique at the time and a good use of my time to be helpful in the community.

Besides that then I just posted screen caps from my game that I thought were pretty or amusing.

Also reblogged good posts from other ACNL bloggers.

So I guess, do it for your own enjoyment, but also maybe try to pin down a focus that will knit all your posts together. Like, do you offer tips and tricks? Do you offer game related fiction or humor or artwork… and so on.

Also just a personal blog where you simply enjoy the game is great too. Really anything will do. As long as you enjoy posting. :)

[listen with headphones for happy fun time]

so carnalchaos told me that if you mix that if you mix 4am music of New Leaf with Lavender Town you get a creepy ass effect 

this happened when I mixed them

………………………………….

4am huh? It was probably done on purpose. At the very least it makes sense why the 4am music is made to sound creepy.

In Japan 4am… or rather, more specifically, 4:44am is considered an unlucky time. Glancing at a clock when it says 4:44am is considered bad luck (4:44pm is not as big a deal because usually you’re dealing with a 24 hour clock in Japan, which says 16:44 and not 4:44pm, but 4:44am is still 4:44).

If you are superstitious, supposedly lots of scary things happen then, and it’s associated with death because the number four 四 can be pronounced し (shi), the same as in the word for death… 死

Finally… Lavender Town in the Japanese version of pokemon was actually called シオンタウン (shion town) … as you can see, it also starts with shi

Bringing this back because it’s been one year since most people outside Japan started playing.

Happy ACNL anniversary you guys :)

sometimes they move in right where you want them to…

sometimes they move in right where you want them to…

Frobert (frog) moved out and Drago (DRAGON!!!) moved in to my NA town, and Takyu (purple ostritch thing) moved out and Kabukichi (Kabuki Cat) is moving into my JP town via a friend.

Lucky weeeeek!

villager picture trade

if anyone needs Cobb or Henry’s pic I’m trading them for basically any other villager pics, unless I have it already, but I don’t have many. ^^

Lemme know! Ask box is open! (you’ll get replies via my main, natsukigirl, tumblr)

some april fools day info for villagers is incomplete. if all else fails just keep saying you don’t know until they say their birthday or catchphrase.

I had to do that with Sally just now on my TT town.

Since I now know which one she was, real Sally also said she was good at blowing bubbles and wants to be a chef.

lildirtbaby asked
hey!! just wondering, but where did you get the japanese version of animal crossing? is it playable on systems purchased outside of japan? thanks!

I got my Japanese 3DS LL via ebay (the とび森 special edition that came preloaded), I then also bought the North American one of the same thing once it came out.

Normally I only buy one system because in the past they had been region free, but for the 3DS they decided to be jerks and region locked them.

This means I needed one system for each region I want to play games for. Since there are/will be several titles from both America and Japan that I wanted to play, this meant having to get one of each.

Do note, however, that the region lock only seems to apply to the 3DS specific games (games with the newer notched shape and 3DS indicated on them). All my older DS games from America and Japan all work on both of my 3DSes regardless of region.
