Mikhail is a traveling violinist who lives at the town hall. He won't appear until Fall 6 of your first year and then he leaves for cooler weather during the Summer season, returning in the Fall. Mikhail will live in the town you currently are living in when he appears in Fall. For example, if you were living in Konohana Town at the start of Fall, Mikhail will live in the Konohana Town Hall. If you then move to Bluebell, he will stay in Konohana. Once he leaves in Summer and if you're still living in Bluebell, he will move back during Fall and live at the Bluebell Town Hall.

He is a very polite individual but he is also very private.

Birthday: Fall 12

Family: None

Favorite Outfit: Classy Outfit

Favorite Wild Animals: All Animals

Disliked Wild Animals: None

Friendship Tips: Mikhail likes a few gold-box insects and his "normal" gifts are challenging to get. You may find it easier to make Herb Salad (Mint + Chamomile + Lavender) but you can't get Lavender until Fall and Winter seasons.

To get tofu, you need to first grow Soybeans. Gombe sells the seeds in Summer and Fall for 100 G each. The crop takes at most 44 days to grow and you don't have to water the crop to make it grow; just plant and harvest after the Soybeans are mature. The simplest recipe to make is Cold Tofu, which just requires Tofu (Soybeans + Pot) and no other cooking utensil.

It may be easier to simply buy the dishes to give him as gifts. Some items are very inexpensive at Yun's Tea House in Konohana Town; Sencha Tea for 140 G (Spring), Sashimi for 80 G (Summer), Puer Tea for 90 G (Fall), and Oolong Tea for 140 G (Fall). His special gift, Boiled Tofu, cannot be purchased from any shop.

Weather: Sunny or Snowy
Date Location: The Spring
Friendships: Mikhail at 2 White Flowers or higher

Mikhail comments on how clean the air is that surrounds the pond. There sounds of the bugs and birds are like nature's symphony. This would be a good place to play the violin.

  • Option 1: Would you please play? (+3000 FP)

    How could he refuse a request from someone as lovely as you? Mikhail will take out his violin and play a tune.

    After it is over, Mikhail is happy. The vibrations of the music in the air feel nice. He hopes you enjoyed his music.

    (The melody that he plays is the Wedding theme from Back To Nature)
  • Option 2: You don't have to play. (-3000) FP

    Mikhail assumes you don't want to hear the sound of his playing. He hopes that some day you'll understand his music.

Blue Flower Event

screen shot

Time: Sunday or Wednesday, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
Weather: Sunny or Snowy
Date Location: By the river
Friendships: Mikhail at 3 White Flowers or higher

The violinist says he hasn't been getting enough sleep lately. He hasn't been able to complete his latest song to the best of his satisfaction, which has caused him to stay up late every night.

  • Option 1: Could I help in some way? (+3000 FP)

    Mikhail thanks you and is glad to know that you would do something generous like that. He's looking for a specific sound that can inspire him; any type of sound will do. You think for a moment and get an idea.

    You lead him to the bell at the church, which Mikhail says he's never heard before. How do you make the sound? You walk up to the bell and give it a good kick! Mikhail wasn't expecting you to do something so surprising, but then the bell chimes out. The harmony floats through the air, inspiring Mikhail. He thinks he will be able to finish writing his song now. You've been very helpful! Mikhail heads back to complete his music composition.
  • Option 2: Maybe you lack talent...? (-3000 FP)

    Mikhail doesn't understand why you would say something rude like that. The sound of your voice pierces his ears and disturbs his harmony. Mikhail excuses himself so he can go home.

Green Flower Event

screen shot

Time: Sunday or Wednesday, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Weather: Sunny, Snowy, or Rainy
Date Location: Town Hall
Friendships: Mikhail at 4 White Flowers or higher

Mikhail was playing a song for you when he suddenly stopped. One of the strings on his violin needs to be changed! He explains that his violin has 4 strings that make sound when he uses his fingers and bow. If a string snaps, his bow will make a bad sound when it's used. He's going to need to put in a new string but he's been so busy, he had forgotten it needed to be restrung!

He tells you not to worry though, as he has had to do it before. Violins are musical instruments that have long lives. It's written that the same violin can last 100 years or more if it is well taken care of. His own violin was given to him by his teacher. It has been used for over 90 years.

  • Option 1: It's a hand-me-down? (-3000 FP)

    Mikhail scolds you for your lack of manners. He lost his parents when he was a child and his teacher was the one who raised him. The violin is an important momento and you are making fun of the memory of his teacher. Mikhail asks you to leave.
  • Option 2: It's a heirloom! (+3000 FP)

    He agrees; it is a very important violin. He lost his parents when he was a child and his teacher was the one who raised him. He taught Mikhail the importance of music and how to play the violin. He loved the music his teacher played and Mikhail has never met someone who could play like his teacher did. This violin is an important memento.

    Mikhail realizes it is a little strange, since he hasn't talked about his past in a long time. Perhaps he is just responding to your gentle voice. Mikhail offers to walk you back to your house before it gets late in the day.

    (You will return to your farmhouse after the event is finished)

(The melody that he plays at the beginning is the Fall theme from Harvest Moon DS)

Yellow Flower Event

screen shot

Time: Wednesday or Sunday, 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Weather: Sunny or Snowy
Date Location: The Spring
Friendships: Mikhail at 5 White Flowers or higher

Mikhail is back to commenting about the mysterious atmosphere surrounding the pond. He wonders if there is something sacred living here. The other day, the girls at the Town Hall told him a legend about the church's bell. In the past, the bell was used to celebrate wedding ceremonies but now it is old and isn't used anymore. Yet even though the bell was abandoned, it is said that couples having their wedding at the top of the mountain can still hear the bell! The sound of the bell is the blessing from the Harvest Goddess, bringing happiness to the couple forever.

Mikhail thinks the girls at the Town Hall must have a vivid imagination. He asks if you like the story.

  • Option 1: It's wonderful! (+3000 FP)

    Well, you're the type of girl he thought you were. He wonders if there's another person you would want to have a wedding together with. He's glad to hear that there isn't. Mikhail begins to talk about your potential companion but then abruptly stops and blushes; this isn't the right time for it yet. He tells you not to worry about it, and offers to walk you back to your house.

    (You will return to your farmhouse after the event is finished)
  • Option 2: Fairytales mean nothing. (-3000 FP)

    It probably isn't possible, but you don't need to be so practical-minded. You'll end up missng out on some of life that way. Music and feelings are the same way; not everything has to be visible to the eye. Haven't you ever believed in a day dream or a legend? Mikhail then leaves.
