Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #115

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Utsuho Reiuji, Rin Kaenbyou, Yatagarasu

The idea for today's comic was stolen from the TVTropes forums. Of course, now I'll probably have to actually deal with the Yatagarasu's presence and continued intelligence at some point in the future, but hey ...

Yes, Utsuho is quoting "Marisa Stole The Precious Thing" in panel 3. Yes, I am aware of the irony of referencing a song of one of the worst excesses of tsundere-Alice.

If you're surprised by Utsuho's vocabulary in panels 5 and 6, she actually talks like that in Touhou 12.3 when dealing with "conaminants" (Cirno and Sanae). It now occurs to me that by planning her dates with Cirno around when she's going to be leaving anyway, she's behaving a bit more responsibly with the reactor than she was in Touhou Saisoutensoku, where she just up and leaves it. I suppose they had help from Orin and Satori with the scheduling, but Utsuho strikes me as the kind of person who, while she can't do a whole lot, she takes what she can do very seriously. Oh well ... chalk it up to love's distraction, I guess.

One of the hardest parts was coming up with the precise wording of the Yatagarasu's outburst in the last panel, i.e. "Son of a BUDGIE" just didn't pack the same punch as most swearwords. I think this one worked out fine, though!
