The film is mostly based on Animal Crossing:Wild World.

Plot

The film begins with Kappei and Ai in Kappei's taxi, similar to the beginning to Animal Crossing: Wild World. Kappei asks Ai many questions about her personality, and as the taxi drives through a tunnel, Ai gets her first view of Animal Village. As the taxi drives to Town Hall, the game's title theme from the Nintendo DS plays.

Ai is excited upon reaching Town Hall, and even carries her own heavy luggage into the building. There, she meets Periko, the Pelican who works in town hall, and Kotobuki, who is Animal Village's mayor. Kotobuki gives Ai a list of four candidates she can vote for the upcoming winter election, but they are all "me, the mayor". When Ai points this out, she accidentally upsets the mayor, but soon comforts him. With this settled, Periko sends Ai to Tanuki's Goods, where the shop owner, Tanuki, will give her her house key.

Upon reaching the store, Tanuki greets her and invites her to buy some of his items. However, upon learning she just needs her key, he becomes upset about her "not mentioning that in the first place", and, before she knows it, Ai has been hired to work as a delivery girl for Tanuki's Goods. Although she starts out rough, she begins her deliveries with Tanuki reassuring her that she will also be able to introduce herself to all of her new neighbors.

Ai's first stop is Buke the cats' house. Buke is too excited about how good she will look in her new dress to notice Ai at first, but soon she begins bombarding Ai with multiple questions which Ai has little time to answer, due to Bukes' fast and constant talking.

Ai then continues to Arebēto's house, where she struggles outside with a large package that turns out to be a delivery of 500 pies. Arebēto goes on about food until Yū, dressed as a ninja, jumps by with a net in attempt to catch a butterfly. When Arebēto chases after Yū with his own net, Ai puts the box of pies in his house, mentioning that she is supposed to be moving her own boxes.

Ai's next delivery is at Biankas' house. While going to put her delivery in her house, Ai is told by Bianka that she can be referred to as an example of a "proper lady", and that she can always give Ai lessons on how to be like her. Ai leaves, commenting that Bianka was "a beautiful person".
