After tapping on Lisa’s exclamation mark
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png Dad, great news! There’s a new episode of The Simpsons airing this weekend!
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png We’re still on that air? I thought that ended years ago? Aren’t we just a game now?
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png No, we’re still on. And we’re one of the most popular shows on broadcast network television.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Broadcast network television? I thought that ended years ago too.
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png Dad! Stop it! Can’t just you be happy for our show’s continued success?
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Why should I?
MESSAGE In honour of the show’s continued success, enjoy this never-before-seen character who’ll be appearing in the upcoming episode.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png A free character? Woo-hoo! Go, continued success, go!

The Saddest Town in America Pt. 1

After tapping on Kumiko’s exclamation mark
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png Ah, Springfield! I can’t think of a better way to finish my tour of America’s saddest cities.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png What about Detroit? Or Flint? Or pretty much anything in Michigan?
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png I said sad, not imploding.
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png Would you mind if I captured your image, in order to always remember our meeting?
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png You mean take my photo?
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png Please, Japanese people taking photos is the stereotype of my father’s generation.
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png I wish to sketch you in my overly-cute-for-a-woman-my-age Hello Kitty notebook.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Well, okay. But let me turn to the side a little. I’m told I’m easier to draw that way.
The player receives “The Saddest Town in America Pt. 1” which is to “Make Kumiko Sketch Springfielders”. It takes 8 hours.

 

The Saddest Town in America Pt. 2

After tapping on Kumiko’s exclamation mark
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png Before, the sadness of Springfield made me happy. But now I’m remembering happy times in Japan, which makes me sad.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png We have a word for that here — homesick. Also, crazy. Maybe it would cheer you up if I showed you around?
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png I would like that. Perhaps take me to your place of business.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Uh… How about I show you the Kwik-E-Mart instead?
The player receives “The Saddest Town in America Pt. 2” which is to “Make Kumiko Visit America’s Saddest Kwik-E-Mart”. It takes 2 hours.

 

After THE Task is Complete
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png Cookies? Candy bars? Cup-o-soups? This store just sells things you could find in an American vending machine.
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png I wish to see something more unusual and exotic, like the things you find in a Japanese vending machine!
Tapped Out Apu Icon.png We do have magazines.
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png Do any of them have racy adult content yet look like they were drawn for children?
Tapped Out Apu Icon.png No.
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png Then again I am sad.

 

The Saddest Town in America Pt. 3

After tapping on Kumiko’s exclamation mark
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Still mopey, eh?
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png Yes, a bit. Perhaps a traditional Japanese meal would cure my homesickness.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Great. So now I have to build that sushi restaurant?
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png No, I was taking about going to Krusty Burger. There’s one every block where I come from.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png I knew there was a reason Japanese obesity was on the rise. Count me in!
The player receives “The Saddest Town in America Pt. 3” which is to “Reach Level 7 and Build Krusty Burger”, “Make Kumiko Eat America’s Saddest Fast Food” and “Make Homer Eat America’s Saddest Fast Food”. It takes 60 minutes.

 

After Arriving at Krusty Burger
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png It is just like the Krusty Burger in my own village. Only you can’t get sake with your meal.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Sake? That’s rice wine! Can you really get booze in fast food restaurants in Japan?
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png I don’t know. But it sounds like something that could be true.

 

After THE Task is Complete
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Hey Kumiko! It looks like you finally cheered up, huh?
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png No, I am still sad. And the fact that you racialist cannot read emotion on Japanese faces makes me sadder.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png What?! No, I… the sun was in my eyes.
Tapped Out Kumiko Icon.png Perhaps I just miss my family… especially my short-sighted and controlling father. I wish he were here.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Well, that’s one thing I’ve never said about MY father.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png But maybe you could have your father come visit?
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Or maybe you’ll meet someone new who’ll make you forget all about your sadness?
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png And maybe that will all happen this weekend, on a show I recently learned is still on TV.
MESSAGE To find out what happens to Kumiko, tune in to this Sunday’s episode of The Simpsons, 8/7c on FOX. Or don’t. But we did just give you a free character. Just saying…
