Tina will move into the villager after you have built the Newspaper Carrier blueprint. You can buy the plan from Rebecca's shop for 2400 G and it is available as soon as Rebecca sets up shop around Spring 25 of your first year. To build Tina's house, you need to use 5 Copper, 25 Material Stone, and 50 Small Lumber.

The journalist has a happy personality and enjoys helping others by finding useful information. Tina always seems to be on the move, searching for the next "big scoop" she can write a story on.

» Any non-festival day of the week
» Sunny, Rainy, or Snowy weather
» You are playing as the boy main character
» Tina has 5,000 Friendship Points or more (0 to 9,999 = black heart color)

As you are walking up the path, you'll be stopped by Tina. She asks if you're foraging for useful things in the area. Tina is in a hurry though and runs on ahead of you. When you get up to the fork in the path, you find some scribbled notes on the ground. It looks like Tina dropped her memos. You spot her running down the path.

Purple Heart Event

» Tina's house, second floor
» 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm
» Any non-festival day of the week
» Any weather
» You are playing as the boy main character
» Tina has a purple heart color or higher
» Your stamina is at 3.5 hearts (70 points) or less
» You have seen the black heart event

Walk upstairs to Tina's second floor. She's glad that you've come to visit but you look hungry. No need to be shy about it! She wants to reward you for finding her memo book, so she cooks up Tina's special Omelet Rice. After you eat, she asks your opinion on her cooking skills.

You must give Tina a Ring before you can see the rest of her heart events. Give her a Ring on Saturday or Sunday, Sunny weather, between 8:00 am and 11:00 pm. Tina must be at a blue heart color or higher.

» Any non-festival day of the week
» Sunny weather
» You are playing as the boy main character
» Tina has a green heart color or higher
» You have not talked to Tina at all that day
» You have seen the purple heart event

Tina has come to visit (for no particular reason) and asks if you are busy. You have the time for your sweetie, so the two of you head up to the hill summit to chit-chat.

After some time, Tina says she heard that you were dating a girl from the other town before the two of you were a couple. She must of been really cute! Tina wants to know if you were confessed to before you started living here. She wants to hear about your past girlfriends.

Tina says she is glad to see you, but she doesn't seem well. A journalist from another town has asked her for some information that she now has to locate in a hurry. She keeps digging through her papers but it looks like she's getting tired. Tina says she has been so busy lately that she hasn't been well, but she can still work quickly. Take time off to rest? Now that seems unreasonable to her.
