    Nooks!​

    What version of Nook's do you have in your town?

    How often do you go to Nook's?
    Do you Love/Hate Nook?


    I like him--he's nice cause he gives you bells, ALTHOUGH I hate the re-sale value of everything, cause he's cheap.

    I've had Nookington's since like early August--barely a month after I got City Folk...

    Here's a funny little factoid:

    Tom Nook (T. Nook) is actually a "Tanuki/Tanooki"--which is a Japanese "Raccoon-Dog" of mythical origin...
    Tanuki's have some magical abilities--like being able to turn things into leaves--which happens in ACCF when you have a piece of Furniture in your pocket...

    this is ALSO a reference to SMB3's "Tanooki Mario" and "Raccoon Mario"--when Mario gets a "Super Leaf" he becomes Raccoon Mario--
    And when he gets a Tanooki Suit, he can magically turn into a Statue...

    ALSO there's a Raccoon figure (furniture item) in ACCF--which is actually a statue of a Tanooki

    (all 3 members of the Nook family have the Initial: "T. Nook"--which is "Tanooki" missing the vowels)

    I go to Nook's most days that I'm on Animal Crossing to check out what he's got in store.
    I like him, except I wish he said different things every time I talked to him, because he usually says the same thing.
    And nice fact, there. =P

    Nice little fact there. Well I don't really play Animal Crossing that much any more but he did look pretty cute in that latest Brawl in the Family comic arch. :)

    Leezy, he does talks sometimes, generally while the Episodes are rolling. And supposedly, Sable knows all kinds of stories about Nook's youth, but i don't know any.

    I mainly buy things if a neighbor needs one, or if it's a "Showcase" item--or part of a set I don't have yet.

    typically just flowers, and then I hit the Nook Point machine to get my 3 visitor pts every day

    the machine in the corner, by the door---
    you get 1 point for every 100 bells spent, and you can use them to purchase RARE items, like a Mario Kart, Yoshi Egg, etc.
