DOUBLE 4KOMA!!1

In the first panel, well, yeah. Anyway, yeah, I'm shipping Yuugi and Parsee. I was originally going to have Hatate "fighting" Hina there, but I decided that giving Parsee more appearances would reinforce comic #81's joke, so I furiously searched for someone else who's halfway-likely to be near the village. Who else? Byakuren's crew! (No I am not going to try to depict Curvy Lasers in create.swf, nor will I ask KirbyM and Thefre to try to do so.) The text in the last panel is taken straight from Perfect Memento's article on Rinnosuke, minus one sentence which gets in the way and doesn't add anything. (Also, the bg, would prefer if you credited, brushes came from here, etc.)

I really don't have anything to say about the second one. Other than the fact that I'm starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel of "And so ..." jokes. Also that black-and-white is what I'm going to use for the "ZA WARUDO" effect from now on (EDIT: ooh, I like this one even better!); ditto changing the spell-card-text "glow" to more of an "outline" ...

Transcript

  1. (Hatate is flying along in front of a waterfall.)
    Hatate: Okay! Time to see how that Aya girl's newspaper got so big!
    Text: The Double-Spoiler Girl with the Missing Textures
    Text: HATATE HIMEKAIDOU
  2. (In front of a waterfall, Momizi is flying in the middle of the screen, unleashing swarms of danmaku; Hatate snaps a photograph with her camera phone.)
    SFX: KER-SNAP!
  3. (Hatate and Shou are flying over Kourindou, the former snapping a photo and the latter shooting out lasers. They are being watched from the ground by Parsee, Yuugi, and Akyu.)
    Yuugi: (one hand on Parsee's shoulder) Yeah, they've *really* drifted off from the Myouren Shrine ...
    Yuugi SFX: came to the surface on a date
    Hatate SFX: KER-SNAP!
  4. (Akyu sits at a desk in the Hieda Mansion, writing in the Gensokyo Chronicle.)
    Text: CELL PHONES
    Text: They are said to make it possible to talk with others from far away.
    Text: Apparently, they are the latest fashion. (the remainder of the text is crossed out) However, they have not been successfully used as of now.
    Crossed-Out Text: At most, they can only be used for throwing as danmaku.
    Akyu: Sigh ...

  5. Narration box: Aya decided to blackmail Satori and Koishi to keep them from reading her mind/telling anyone.
    (Satori and Koishi, in the Palace of Earth Spirits.)
    Satori: Of all the despicable things ... I'm almost tempted to send Orin and Utsuho after her.
    Koishi: (her Third Eye is open) Wait! I got an idea!
    Satori: Oh ...?
  6. Upside-Down Narration Box: And so ...
    (At the SDM, Hatate is meeting with Sakuya, Flandre, and Koishi.)
    Sakuya: ... and that's our proposal. We help you, and we both get back at Shameimaru.
    Hatate: Hmm ... I think I like this idea!
  7. (At the waterfall, Aya is zipping by faster than the eye can see, leaving only green lasers and a shower of danmaku, as Hatate tries to photograph her.)
    Red Spell Card: Too Freaking Fast Sign 「Illusionary Dominance」
    SFX: ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM
    Aya: AHAHAHAHA! TRY PHOTOGRAPHING ME LIKE THIS!
  8. (Sakuya leans into the view and stops time, revealing Aya. Hatate, with the Awesome Face, raises her camera-phone.)
    Spell Card: Illusion World 「ZA WARUDO」

1Okay, so, uh, basically ... I had two entirely different ideas for what I wanted to do in my Double Spoiler comic, which I knew was going to be a 4koma. I couldn't decide between one or the other, and there was no way in Jigoku I was going to do a multi-parter now. Then I got the idea of doing a double-feature, and quickly realized that there was no way I could do anything else.

All Touhou characters are © Team Shanghai Alice and/or ZUN; create.swf is ⑨ KirbyM with help from Thefre. "Sakura petals" brush in main/4koma logo was made by Kisara Girl. "Falling leaves" brush in 60-Years logo came with Photoshop.

Ah, I remember seeing videos of Illusionary Dominance... Too Freaking Fast Sign indeed.

And I just realized the coincidence of Parsee and Hina debuting in the same comic in #81, and later they share a stage in Double Spoiler! I guess there WAS reason for Hina to be undergorund then!

JonB

There can never be too many "ZA WARUDO" jokes. Hatate's face is just so... awesome! Although I think this is the first time that Sakuya has 'un-affected' someone else.

SoF

Oh wow, I think this is some of your best work. Short and punchy is a nice change-up from the EPICs you've been doing lately.

"The Double-Spoiler Girl with the Missing Textures" HAH!

Shame Aya's picture is going to be in black-and-white. Oh who am I kidding, Gensokyo is the land of "7 colored [noun]". Hatate's probably the 7 Colored Photoshop Artist.

EverardXavier

Nice comic, made me laugh out loud in a quiet house where people are trying to sleep (oops). The spell-card text is a lot more readable now!

RE: Spoiler tags

I see what you did there.

Zemyla

I find Parsee and Yuugi together really cute, I can't help it. Will this show up on your shipping page, or are they on a date for some other reason?

Kimiko Muffin

They are on the shipping page.

@SoF: Oh right, I kept meaning to mention this: Sakuya resumes time at the exact instant Hatate takes the picture, thus getting a cleanly-colored one. :3

Bocaj

I'm somewhat curious as to what Aya is using to blackmail the Komeijis.

Facteur Rien

I LOVE the "ker-snap". But I'm probably the only one understanding why.

Tewi Inonymous

Two tengu reporters with weird shoes now?
What is gensenkyo coming too?

Also, how does "I took a picture of you using danmuku" work as revenge? Wouldn't you need to take a picture of aya bathing or something?

Bocaj

@Tewi Inonymous: Taking such a clear, non-motion blurred picture offends her pride as the Swiftest.

SoF

The weird shoes are actually a variation of geta (clogs) known as (wait for it) tengu-geta. I know this only because I happened to be browsing Wikipedia the other day. ZUN makes up surprisingly few things, he usually recycles old myths and such.

Duran

Nice ending to the comic, especially Hatate's face.

Kimiko Muffin

okaaaaaay I'll stop messing around with the spellcard text and the ZA WARUDO special effects

Skribulous

I like Hatate even more now. :)


@Bocaj

Maybe this has something to do with it.

Joe4evr

@Skribulous: That video is deleted now.

looks like that video is http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm9536527 on NikoVideo

RE: Missing Textures:
at first I was like 'huh?', then I laughed hysterically.

Splendid~

I read some Double Spoiler text, And it says that Reimu can teleport with out knowing it. Power to float over there? Possibly only when angry, As she is getting mad at the paparazzi at the time. That maybe a comic for the future, huh?
