Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #128

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Komachi Onozuka, Shikieiki Yamaxanadu, Kisume, Hong Meiling, Mugetsu, Gengetsu, Unnamed Giant Catfish, Maribel Han, Renko Usami, Yukari Yakumo

And so, my randomly-decided-upon Shikieiki Month draws to a close. Next week, I shall have to start actually coming up with ideas again! This comic was made while mildly drunk on lack-of-sleep (thus explaining everything). Whee!

I've actually had Maribel's line (well, minus the "it fell off" bit) in my ideas-list for months. I just needed a good dream to put it in. As I sort-of-planned Shiki Month, I needed a good follow up for the familial resemblance ... oh hey!

For those of you to whom this is significant, panel 4 has the top 13 pixels cropped from the top. This was completely by accident when I discovered it needed to be cropped, I swear!

Transcript

  1. (From before: Shikieiki, Kisume, and Komachi by the river. And then suddenly Meiling comes out of fricking nowhere.)
    Meiling: NO IT IS NOT A FAMILIAL RESEMBLANCE!
    Shiki: What!?
    Kisume: BEES!
  2. (Exeunt Meiling and Kisume, while Mugetsu and Gengetsu arrive on the scene. There is a great big shadow on the ground.)
    Mugetsu: Wait, what's *she* doing here?
    Shikieiki: What're *you* two doing here!?
    Komachi: LOOK OUT!
  3. (Time Paradox screen. They are all apparently squished by the giant catfish except for Komachi, who is merely flung out of the way.)
    Text: TIME PARADOX
    Text: Continue/Exit
    Catfish: I AM BIG AND UGLY!
    SFX: KER-SLAMUEL
  4. Narration Box: A couple years ago ...
    (Maribel and Renko are standing by the road. They are being watched by Yukari.)
    Maribel: And when I woke up, my pillow was gone. (aside) It fell off the bed while I was tossing and turning in my sleep.
    Renko: Okay, I think this dream means no more sushi *and* pizza before bedtime.

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.

Ow... my head hurts from trying to understand what just happened.

THE MARK OF TRUE STORYTELLING!!!

Duran

Was that a Primeus impersonation? And was that really just a twisted dream by Maribel?

Kimiko Muffin

No, it was the giant catfish from Touhou Hisoutensoku. And yes this comic was a dream by Maribel. :P

Mallow

413 IS EVERYWHERE

Next you'll tell people that the sixth appearing character has twelve dots on her skirt or something. ;P

Young Demon Lord

Is it bad that my favorite part of this comic is Kisume yelling "BEES!"? Somehow, it seems like the most straightforward, predictable thing she's done in Shikienanigans. Not that it was straightforward or predictable in the least, mind you.

CapedLuigisYoshi

What.

*giggle* Once again, I find myself saying that that was funnier than it had any right to be.

Player Three

Did...did Yukari just do the same thing she did here?

Keine's going to throw a fit. DAMNIT YUKARI

Sushi and pizza go great together. 'Tis ideal if the pizza is Hawaiian. And has actual Canadian bacon as opposed to mere ham.

Love the brick joke with Meiling in this comic.

Hunter 1

...A "It Was All Just A Dream" copout?

Seriously?

Kimiko Muffin

Nah, only this last part.

Ruki

413 is spreading!

oh maaaaan

Duran

I meant what the fish was saying, not its existence.

TakerFoxx

I think I'm gonna start randomly yelling "Bees!" in the middle of conversations with a great big smile on my face, just to see what'll happen.

Arcc

Muffin, every day I wonder why I'm involved with this ridiculous Touhou stuff. And then I click the bookmark for your website, and things make proper sense again.

Beta Maxis

Ok, what does 413 have to do with anything? I know about 3 and 7 and 11, and even 4, but why 413? Is that the golden ratio?

teejeh

Beta: 413 is semi-arbitrarily significant to readers of Homestuck.

Cassie

Can somebody truly explain to me what just happened in ALL of Shick Judge's shenanigans up till now? If it's all a dream, then I'm not finding this remotely humorous, at all.

Kimiko Muffin

@Cassie:

Nah, only this last part.

Mariku

Silly Muffin, you mispelt "Familial".

Mariku

Wait, I mispelt Familiar (smug look gone)

MWchase

Check the callback in the second-last panel of this, which may, in the absence of preview, be bad html, since I rarely type link code out. (I was going to say more, but I was getting painfully antagonistic, in my own estimation, when I tried, so you just get a link.)

MWchase

To. Callback to.

Raaarghlblargl. No more posting while sleep-deprived. *disappears forever*

...

*not really*
