One Animal Crossing: New Horizons decides to dedicate their bulletin board to their favorite anime detective in a time-lapse drawing video.
From one player who continues to base their island on The Witcher 3, fit with a woodland area, coastal bandit camp and Honeyfill Meadworks, to another player who created a version of the ruined Hyrule Castle from Breath of the Wild, it’s clear that Animal Crossing players have no shortage of inspiration from other media. Rather than creating something a large building or terraforming an area to look like a game though, one Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan has decided to take things to a smaller scale, creating their tribute on the bulletin board found in the town square.
Often players use the bulletin board to write messages and draw. Similarly to a player’s island, often Animal Crossing players will make tributes to games, villagers, and movies on their bulletin board. One player decided to dedicate their board to L from the hugely popular anime Death Note. Though the anime finished airing in 2007, it received a Netflix adaptation in 2017, and remains popular and meaningful to fans.
The video, which was posted to Reddit by user u/oodlesof_doodles, is a time-lapse which shows the player at first attempting to draw different characters, before settling on the style which is recognizably similar to Death Note, and drawing the character from the anime. There are multiple drafts of L, which as pointed out by one commenter all seemed to “look great.” However, as the artist detailed in the comments, they weren’t “feeling” the previous drawings before settling on the final piece, which was praised by many. Drawings seem to be a way in which many Animal Crossing fans create their tributes either in-game or in real life. One player decided against crossovers and instead drew every villager in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Despite its anime ending nearly fifteen years ago, Death Note’s popularity has been maintained throughout the years by new anime fans stumbling on the series. Recently, Death Note landed popular Twitch streamer Disguised Toast a one month ban as the streamer decided to stream the anime while broadcasting.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now for the Nintendo Switch.
Control’s protagonist is Jesse Faden, the director of the FBC, also known as the Oldest House, a mere building that truly steals the show.
