Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #109

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Suwako Moriya, Cirno, Rin Kaenbyou, Utsuho Reiuji

The title is a reference to Captain Planet. Half of the purpose of this comic was for Cirno to be able to say her Blasphemous ... um ... Battlecry (Warning, link leads to TVTropes. Muffin will not be held responsible for hours of time lost as a result of following it.But see also this disclaimer) ... and the other half was for the punchline. Meh, this kind of meandered between the two, whatever.

I also decided to start actually use the "shadow" object which I requested like years ago, for precisely the purpose to which I put it in this comic! Also, the return of "B'DUH!"

Oh, right. "FACEPALM X2 COMBO" is a reference to MS Paint Adventures. (And, once again, specifying that it is a facepalm is more or less mandatory in create.swf ...)

(Also, I may have mentioned before, but my new arch-nemesis in making these comics is "saving the PNG of a panel but forgetting to save it in create.swf before I go to work on the next panel." Appropriately enough, this happened to panel ⑨ this time around ...)


  1. Narration box: For no reason, here's a fight scene in which Cirno and Suwako are each doing "just two spell cards."
    (Cirno and Suwako are engaged in a danmaku-duel. Suwako is launching big iron rings, and Cirno was launching ice crystals, but has just been hit in the chin by one of the rings.)
    Cirno: GWAGH!!
    Suwako: Heh, nice, it's cool how you got me to my last card before I got you to yours, but ...
    Spell Card: Not-Extra Sign 「Bouncing Iron Rings」
  2. (A ghostly Spell Card image of Cirno appears.)
    Spell Card: Ice Sign 「Icicle Fall -Crusher-」
    Cirno: Oh yeah!? Well I'm gonna show you how much I'm the strongest!
    Suwako: What!? I thought you gave that one up!
  3. (Cirno unleashes her attack, and Suwako flies into the safe spot, brandishing an iron ring.)
    Cirno: Yeah?
    Suwako: Yeah. I thought if even *you* figured out it was stupid, it *had* to be bad.
  4. (Cirno whips out a glacier-mallet.)
    Suwako: (obscured by the mallet) asdfghjkl zxcvbnm
  5. (The mallet shatters, while Cirno watches on, cat-faced.)
    Suwako: B'DUH!
  6. (Orin walks into view as Suwako gets up. Cirno hovers in front of her.)
    Suwako: Aw, man, that was I don't even ... How'd you even get the idea for that!?
    Orin: I gave it to 'er.
  7. (Utsuho enters behind Orin, and Cirno promptly zips over to her.)
    Suwako: Yeah, I kinda figured it was gonna be something like that ...
    Orin: Yeah ... Anyway, I'm here to take 'em on a sorta supervised date, so, yeah.
    Suwako: Later!
  8. (Suwako flies off. Orin hangs back with a smirk while Cirno and Utsuho chat a bit.)
    Utsuho: I've been working on figuring out more of my powers and stuff!
    Cirno: Ah, cool! So you're helping yourself be more of the STRONGEST?
    Utsuho: Yeah!
  9. (Utsuho turns to leave. Orin's smirk fades.)
    Utsuho: Actually it's kinda tough. I *can* do more powerful stuff, but I'd overheat if I tried to do it.
    Cirno: Huh? That sucks!
  10. Utsuho: Yeah, if only there was some way I could keep myself cool when I wanted to use them!
    Cirno: Yeah!
    Orin SFX: facepalm x2 combo!

Yeah... if only there was some youkai with the power to control Ice...
*Cirno pops up* "Hey whats up?"
Oh nothing much... just trying to figure out how to cool things down... MAN Cirno you sure know how to get it freezing! Why not freeze someone else for a change!
*Cirno gets angry* "Well Fine Then!" *Leaves*

Now... hmmm who do I know can cool things...

The Watcher

Looks like Orin will have to give them both a crash course in how their powers compliment eachother.

Just what do you have against the rest of the Universe? We know how powerful nukes are from real-world experience. To keep a living one cooled to the point that it can be used on a whim...just how powerful do you think that will be? Please express the power you are proposing in units of EX-Rumias.


Satori wants them home before ten and no funny business young ma- I mean, young lady.

Really, their chaperone is more likely to be a bad influence than either of the lovebirds.

Hunter 1

YDL: Well, since in this comic EX-Rumia has claimed to have the power to end the Earth, unless Word of Muffin says she's lying, it would be expressed in a fraction of EX-Rumia's power.

Also, Muffin? Can I ask that you disable the "arrow keys change comics" function when these text fields are active? It's kinda annoying to have to retype a comment when you hit the left arrow key to change something and it loads the previous page instead...

@Hunter 1: I am attempting to do just that. I'm shutting off the code altogether in the meanwhile.

EDIT: Huzzah!

YOU FOOL! You'll kill us all!
Wait... Then I'll get to meet Yuyuko... GO FOR IT!
