Characters: Walfas Daily Flash Characters, Sanae Kotiya

I feel both extremely awesome and extremely dorky for having given the Daily Flash characters names which have the same meaning as their labels. Taking it from the top: Mumei ("nameless" for Unnamed Character: 無名), Kiiro Chouhatsu ("yellow/amber" "longhair" for Long-Haired Character, because the only word I could find that meant "orange color" was too masculine-seeming: 長髪黄色), Mimi Oto ("ears" "sound" for Headphones Character, because there's no native Japanese word for headphones: 音耳), and Ikken Taikutsu ("seemingly" "bored", for Bored-Looking Character: 退屈一見). Oh, and for the record, the teacher is named Chita Seisen (named after a city and "Star thousand", sorta-spoonerized "teachah" and reversed "sensei" respectively: 星千知多).1

I was shooting for "original flavor" (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) with the characters' dialogue in the "present times" section, apart from the fact that they mention each other's names. In other words, yes, that is pretty much exactly how the Daily Flash characters talk. I'm rather pleased with the new rendition of their outfits, especially Bored-Looking Character's.

And, y'know, I expect nobody will begrudge my Painting The Fourth Wall (Warning, link leads to TVTropes. Previous disclaimer appliesBut see also this disclaimer) by depicting "young Sanae" as "previous create.swf version of Sanae" ...

But yeah. Happy belated birthday, KirbyM! I'd never have gotten this far if create.swf didn't exist.

Oh, yes, by request, here's the DNA-codes for the characters:

  • 3.39:Walfas-UC (Mumei):90:117:119:178:168:2:0:0:0:0:0:FFFF66
  • 3.39:Walfas-LHC (Kiiro):90:0:142:178:168:2:0:0:0:0:0:F3BB69
  • 3.39:Walfas-HC (Mimi):90:8:171:178:168:2:0:0:0:0:0:994D00
  • 3.39:Walfas-BLC (Ikken):90:0:82:178:168:2:12:0:0:0:0:F19FAD
  • 3.39:Walfas-Teacher (Seisen-Sensei):100:0:93:200:179:2:0:0:0:8:0:443322
  • 3.39:Sanae Schoolgirl:90:161:162:178:168:2:0:0:0:0:0:98F898
  • 3.39:UC (Kogasa):100:118:119:103:3:6:0:0:0:0:0:FFFF66
  • 3.39:LHC (Rika):100:142:87:126:2:0:0:0:0:0:F3BB69
  • 3.39:BLC (Wriggle):100:0:82:148:145:2:12:0:0:0:0:F19FAD

(Photoshopping UC, LHC, and BLC into the colors depicted in this comic is an exercise left to the reader. Um, at least until/unless Thefre figures out the supreme hax necessary for changing the colors like that within create.swf ...)

Transcript

  1. (Unnamed Character, Long-Haired Chararacter, and Bored-Looking Character are standing in a school hallway, all in school uniforms. They are approached by Headphones Character.)
    Headphones Character: Hey guys!
  2. Unnamed Character: Oh, hiya, Mimi! I got your present!
    Long-Haired Character: Hi, Mimi!
    Headphones Character: Good! Sorry I couldn't come to the party, I had to study for that test, y'know ...
  3. (Sanae walks into view.)
    Sanae: Hey, everyone! How was the party?
    Unnamed Character: Oh, hi, Sanae!
    Long-Haired Character: (aside) So, yeah, Ikken, I'll get you the notes.
    Bored-Looking Character: (aside) Thanks, Kiiro-chan!
  4. Text: ......
  5. (Unnamed Character and Long-Haired Character walk down a city street in normal clothes.)
    Unnamed Character: Hmm ...
    Long-Haired Character: Whatcha thinking about?
  6. Unnamed Character: Oh, I was just pondering some past birthdays, and the last time we saw Sanae. (aside) The two things are not related because the last time we saw her was not my birthday.
    Long-Haired Character: Oh, yeah ...
  7. Long-Haired Character: Isn't it weird how she disappeared one day and then the shrine she lived at suddenly looked like it had been abandoned for years?
    Unnamed Character: I know, right?
  8. (Bored-Looking Character arrives.)
    Bored-Looking Character: You know, none of us actually knew her all that well. She just hung out with us sometimes.
    Long-Haired Character: Hey, c'mon, Ikken, that kind of thing has never stopped wild speculation before!
    Unnamed Character: Yeah, I mean, *everyone* wonders what happened.
  9. (They continue down the street.)
    Unnamed Character: I'm sure there is a perfectly rational and non-supernatural explanation for it! Now let's head to the cafe!
    Long-Haired Character: Okay!
    Bored-Looking Character: Right.
  10. (A blank panel like the end of the Daily Flashes, with an arrow pointing left in the corner.)
    Text: end
    Text: (Happy belated birthday, KirbyM!)

1Oh, and the Kanji is all given in the Japanese naming order, i.e. 長髪黄色 = Chouhatsu Kiiro.

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.

...AWESOME.:D

And yeah, you totally nailed how the characters tend to talk. (Granted, I presonally think that they'd still be wearing the uniforms outside of school, since according to Daily Flash #300, they don't need them anymore, but they, in Ikken's words, "are quite comfortable"... but hey, your choice for their outfits.)

And I must compliment you on the creativity with names. In summation, excellent job, Muffin.:3

sRc

the back arrow on the last panel is a great touch

Kimiko Muffin

Yeah, I do admit that I felt less-dorky when KirbyM gave approval via Twitter ...

You Know, we really need the DNA that tham.

The Walfas-Club (DeviantART.com) [Muffin-edit: Please close tags properly.] would be really Cool (or something) if we have the KirbyM's OC DNA.

Oh, crap! Uhh, apologies for any trouble that I've caused for sharing your friend's name!

We can still be friends, though.

Great new comic.

Kimiko Muffin

Painting The Fourth Wall. The rest of the girls have anime hair-colors, too.

It's not because I forgot, honest. |3
