Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #124

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Shikieiki Yamaxanadu, Byakuren Hijiri, Komachi Onozuka

So for no reason except that the top three ideas I have on my "list of possible Touhou Nekokayou ideas" are Shiki-related, this August looks like it's going to be Shikieiki Month. There's no other significance to it, really.

The challenge here was coming up with a punchline that was 1. in-character for all parties, 2. amusing, and 3. not bloody obvious from the premise. While juggling these ideas in my head, I ultimately decided, "Screw it, I can get away with that stuff if this is going to be mostly a setting-the-stage deal."

Hmm ... in create.swf, the black flap-thingies on Shikieiki's hat look kinda like cat-ears ...

Transcript

  1. (Shikieiki is floating through the woods.)
    Shiki: (thought cloud) Hmm ... a supposedly righteous monk has taken up residence near the Human Village ... This has the sin of Pride written all over it.
  2. (She encounters Byakuren in the Human Village.)
    Shiki: Ah, Miss Hijiri -- just the woman I was looking for.
    Byakuren: Ah, yes? What is it?
    Spell Card: 「Power To See Things In Black And White」
  3. (The background becomes white; Shiki stumbles backwards.)
    SFX: WHITE!
    Byakuren: ...?
  4. (Komachi approaches her in the courtroom.)
    Komachi: Say, um, I'm almost at my quota for today, and it's almost time for ... huh?
    Shiki: (sweatdrop) Komachi? Let's ... just ... take tomorrow off.

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.

In what is quickly becoming a running gag for me on this site: NOOB TIME! Is that blue text in panel 2 a font supported by Walfas that you colorized, or photoshop hickery-dickery? (Holy crap, I am SO making that my new favorite word combo)

D**N IT ALL why can't I think these things up until AFTER I click 'Submit?' Ok, I'm thinking Byakuren is easily getting position as a Yama if or when she eventually dies.

The Spell Card text is always Photoshop-stuff.

Shiki: No Trials for you Byakuren! Just go to Heaven already!

To Shiki, seeing that much white is like seeing a double rainbow (all the way across the sky). IT'S SO INTENSE!
