Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #113

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Iku Nagae, Ran Yakumo, Yukari Yakumo

So, yeah. The Pong game in create.swf (Remember that!? It was the first time I used the "SPOOOOOOON" sfx!) got upgraded. I also didn't notice that Yukari and Ran were now KirbyM's upgraded versions in the pong game until I went to test it.

Tonight's comic was mildly infuriating to make because I recently got a new computer, and I haven't yet gotten used to all of Windows 7's quirks. But I got rid of the latest generation of "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" immediately after I was finished with this comic, so we're probably good to go!


  1. ("End of Gensokyo" scene. Iku is on defense, with two Pong paddles; Ran has just slipped past her defenses, setting off the barrier-shield-thingy from the pong game.)
    Iku: Ouch!
  2. (Over to Yukari's side of the playing field; Ran comes out of a gap.)
    Iku: (off-panel) ... what!? *small* powerups!?
    Yukari: Oh, yes, you didn't die until you were at full power and then you bombed a bit!
    Ran: mutter ... Yeah, in the new version of the pong game, you only get small ones when you die.
  3. (Ran takes up her position in front of Yukari.)
    Iku: (aside, off-panel) I guess that explains why I was getting so many powerups from everything *else* ...
    Yukari: Wait, hang on ... That was your third death, wasn't it? Why haven't I won!?
  4. (Back to Iku.)
    Iku: It's because I got a 1up from getting over 1000 points!
    Yukari: (off-panel) D'OH!
    Ran: (off-panel) Oh, so *that's* what that "powerup" noise before was.

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.

A comic about this was an inevitability, really. Not quite how I pictured it, but whatev.

Also, back when the game was updated, I managed to win for the first time. Walfas-Yukari is a SORE loser.


This is the most excellent pong game I have ever seen.


Hm, my highest score was 5028 in that new pong one.


How many times do you have to beat her to actually win? I got around 4 or so before losing.

Stage 1: Just Ran.
Stage 2: she starts throwing kunai.
Stage 3: she adds Chen, thus making it ridiculously easy since she can't keep track of Chen.
Stage 4: She summons Yuyuko, who is in charge of blocking Chen.
Stage 5: Youmu appears and zooms towards you.
Final Stage: the same, except with lots more kunai.


Got to stage 5 before game over.

Stage 3 has your point counter going up every second you stay alive. The counter stops and goes back to rely on point items on stage 4.

I notice that on Stage 4, knocking out Chen does damage, but it doesn't happen on stage 3.

Wow finally beat Yukari haha...
Not to spoil the ending but... I wonder if that was Mokou's Truck


What is your choice of replacement for windows' Picture and Fax Viewer? I'm getting sick of the one in Win7, too slow and clunky for my netbook.

I stole MS Paint from my copy of XP, and put it in the Program Files (x86) folder. Also, IrfanView.

That is a long-a** game of pong there. Better call it a draw.
