Storyline

This is the story of a young self-reliant girl called Ai, who one day, moves into the Animal Village. While working at Tom Nook's shop "Nook's Cranny" she begins living her life away from her family. To begin with, she doesn't know left from right, but under the guidance of Mayor Tortimer, the angry but correct Mr. Resetti, and the wandering musician K.K. Slider among others, she is eventually accepted as a member of the village. One night as she walked along the beach, she finds a message in the bottle. It sets her off on a quest of planting pine trees around the village to fulfill a miracle on the eve of the Winter Festival. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Plot is Jumbled all Around and Confusing
24 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

While this movie is beautifully animated, coming from the games you can't give it a well plot that is exciting or at least interesting, the movie tries to go for emotional or happy moments in montages, but that doesn't really help, or have any development for the story or the characters. I would really want for the Nintendo world to have more "anime" style movies, that have a well developed plot. I feel that it will do really good for their brand, and a company as a whole, but I feel that Animal Crossing was a step in the wrong direction. They can do it, but it'll take some work.
