Johnny's Photo
Japanese Name: イブキ (Ibuki)

Description[edit]

Ever since he was young, he's loved nature and the great outdoors. He may not know much about tending to livestock or growing crops, but he has a can-do attitude and a willingness to try new things that make him a quick learner.[1]

The Hero of Story of Seasons. He wears a round farmer's cap, and sports a coat and capris ensemble. His outfit design resembles 20th century European farmers.

Events[edit]

Johnny is only ever the main character of the game. He cannot be met in game if you play as Annie.
He does, however, have an introductory event at the very start of the game. It is used to describe Johnny's character, and introduce the player to their new home.
As Johnny is a (mostly) silent protagonist, he has no verbal responses in this event and instead expresses himself through different reactions.

N/A Narrator One chilly winter day, as you leafed through your mail, a simple pamphlet caught your eye.
N/A Narrator "New Farmers Wanted! Join us and help Oak Tree Town grow as you work the land!"
N/A Narrator Wouldn't it be interesting to become a farmer? To leave city life behind and live off the land, in harmony with nature?
N/A Narrator With visions of green pastures and friendly animals in your head, you filled out and submitted the application.
N/A Narrator One week ago, the reply came. You'd been accepted! Now, a new life awaits you in the countryside..

Sos veronica everyday 1.png ?????? Ah, you must be the applicant for the vacant farmer position. Er...

Sos veronica happy.png ?????? Welcome to Oak Tree Town. We're so glad you decided to come.
Sos veronica happy.png ?????? I am Veronica, the Guild Master. It's a pleasure to meet you.
Sos veronica happy.png Veronica The Guild office manages the day-to-day operation of Oak Tree Town.
Sos veronica happy.png Veronica We handle a multitude of duties here, such as running town events and posting job openings.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica It's also our job to welcome you as our town's newest farmer.
Sos veronica sad.png Veronica We received many applications, but of course, we had only one opening. We kept coming back to your application...
Sos veronica happy.png Veronica because we could feel the honesty and passion you possess. Eventually, we decided you would be the best fit.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica I know you've come a long way to start your new life as a farmer...
Sos veronica sad.png Veronica But I'm afraid we've still got some work to do setting up your farm.
Sos veronica sad.png Veronica So, until the farm is ready fo you to move into, I'm going to have you stay with another farmer for training.
Sos veronica happy.png Veronica Don't worry. She's the nicest, gentlest old lady you could ever meet.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica Any questions? No? Well then, allow me to walk you to her farm.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica The farm where you'll be staying is 4 blocks up the mountain.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica It's a bit out of the way, but it's really a very pleasant place.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica Shall we be going?
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica Isn't this a lovely town? It may be a little small, but I think that adds to its charm.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica That we enjoy the level of prosperity we do is thanks to everyone's hard work and good attitude.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica As Guild Master, I'm very proud of our town and everyone who calls it home.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica I hope that someday you'll come to love it as much as I do, <Player>.
Sos veronica happy.png Veronica Oh-ho! I'm glad to hear you say so. Well then, let's make our way up into the mountains.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica Plenty of people live in town, but set foot outside it and you'll find yourself surrounded by lush forests and rivers.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica The richness of the natural world around us is one of the best things about living here. Would you mind if we made a small detour?
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica Isn't this a beautiful river? This clear water and the rich soil nourish the crops our farmers grow.
Sos veronica happy.png Veronica Farming aside, isn't it relaxing to sit and listen to the quiet rush of the water?
Sos veronica happy.png Veronica Well then, let's continue on to the farm.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica This way, <Player>.
Sos veronica sad.png Veronica Are you all right?
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica These hills get steep in places. The climb can tire you out if you're not used to it.
Sos veronica happy.png Veronica Why don't we take a moment to catch our breath?
Sos veronica happy.png Veronica Hm? The air tastes sweet?
Sos veronica happy.png Veronica Yes, I can see how it would seem that way for those who have spent their lives in the city.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica Nature's beauty is this town's greatest treasure, and I aim to keep it that way.
Sos veronica happy.png Veronica Shall we continue on? We still have a little ways to go.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica All right, <Player>. Here is where you'll learn all about what it takes to be a farmer.
Sos eda happy.png
?????? My, my! Why hello there, Miss Veronica.
Sos eda happy.png
?????? And who is this you've brought with you?
Sos veronica happy.png Veronica This is the new farmer that we talked about last week.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
?????? Oho! And such a spry-looking youth, too!
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica <Player>, allow me to introduce you. This is Madam Eda.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica She has run this farm for many years, and you'll benefit greatly from her guidance and experience.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica The milk from her farm has swept up blue ribbons from a hundred county fairs.
Sos eda happy.png
Eda My, my! Flattery will get you everywhere, hoho!
Sos eda happy.png
Eda <Player>, was it? It's a pleasure to meet you.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica Now then, <player>.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica Madam Eda will instruct you in the finer points of raising crops, tending to animals and all the other chores that come with being a farmer.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica This is just until your own farm is ready. That should be in about a week.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica Until then, Madam Eda has graciously offered to let you stay as a guest in her house.
Sos eda happy.png
Eda I'd be happy to have you, <Player>.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica Now, I'm afraid I have other work to attend to. May I leave the rest in your hands, Madam?
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda Of course.
Sos veronica everyday 1.png Veronica <Player>, Madam Eda has been a farmer for decades, so be sure to take advantage of all her knowledge.
Sos veronica happy.png Veronica Should you need any other help, or assistance with getting settled, you're welcome to come by the Guild anytime. Now, if you'll excuse me...
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda Well then, what kind of host would I be to leave you standing out here in the cold? Would you like to come in?
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda Hohoho. Come in, come in!
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda This is my home. And even though it's just for a few days, think of it as your home, too.
Sos eda happy.png
Eda Hm? I look happy?
Sos eda happy.png
Eda Why, of course! Ever since my grandson moved back to the city, I've been living in this old house all by myself.
Sos eda happy.png
Eda With you here, it's almost like he's home for a visit. I'm glad to have the company.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda You must be exhausted from the trip here. Let's wait until tomorrow to start working.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda Why don't I show you to your room? This way, dear.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda This will be your room. Now, let me explain what you can do with all the furniture you see here.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda First is your Toolbox. You can store tools like hoes and sickles in here.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda Stand next to it and press the A button to use it.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda You can leave things in your bag, of course, but if you won't be using them soon or just need to free up space, stow them here.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda Next is your Storage Box. You can keep items, insects and other collectibles in here.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda You use it the same way as the Toolbox, by standing next to it and pressing the A button.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda That brings us to the Bookshelf. Here, you can look up info on all the things you learn how to do on the farm.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda As with the Toolbox and Storage Box, stand next to it and press the A button to use it.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda People in this town are fond of giving educational books, so always be sure to read up to refresh what you've learned.
Sos eda sad.png
Eda Good gravy, look at the time! You must be tired and here I am, plumb talking your ear off.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda Go ahead and sleep in this bed here. Just stand next to it and press the A button to turn in for the night.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda I still have a few chores to finish, so don't wait up for me.
Sos eda happy.png
Eda Oh, one last thing. What do you think about keeping a journal of your life here?
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda Writing in your journal helps you remember what you've been doing. I do it before bed, but you can jot down your progress anytime.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda And before I go, here's a small allowance from me. Use it to get whatever you might need.
Sos eda everyday 1.png
Eda Good night.

Trivia[edit]

  • Depending on the Kanji used, Ibuki can mean multiple things - including exciting hope and budding tree.[2]
  • Ibuki is a unisex name. This is mostly an inference to the main characters' ability to dress in unisex clothing.
  • Johnny as a name is likely based on the full name "Johnny Appleseed".[3] The name is merely a design preference, and not in reference to the real person.
