Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #2

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Marisa Kirisame, Alice Margatroid, Shanghai

Unlike the first one (which was created entirely without any special image-editing), this one was created, or at least special-effected, almost entirely in Photoshop. Of course, given that this is create.swf, this is probably over-special-effecting it, but at least it's something ...

And yeah, I know, "sketchy pink background" is a bit wacky to use for a spell-card background.

Hmm ... story-ish-ness isn't quite as good, I suppose because it's part 1 of a two-parter.

Transcript

  1. (Star-danmaku against a blue sky.)
    Narration: The sky was full of stars ...
    Narration: ... which was a bit odd, because it was just past noon.
  2. (Alice and Marisa are having a danmaku duel. Marisa is unleashing stars, and Alice is firing a red-orange laser from Shanghai. There is a health-meter at the top of the panel, with only a little bit left before reaching a Spell Card.)
    Marisa: YEE-HAW!
    Alice: Ha! You're still not hitting me with anything!
  3. (The laser hits Marisa, draining the last of the white health-meter.)
    Marisa: Yeah, well, I still haven't -- ackpth!
  4. (The scene shifts to a sketchy pink background, zoomed in on Marisa, with a giant "Spell Card image" of her; the red Spell Card meter expands to fill the full horizontal width of the panel.)
    Marisa: Well, then, it's time to unleash the might of ...
    Spell Card: Perverse Love 「Easy Harvest Master Spark」
    Footnote: *Actual name of Spell Card in Scarlet Weather Rhapsody
  5. (Cut to Alice; the name of the Spell Card is now in the upper right corner under the health meter.)
    Alice: (panicked) *What* love!? Th-that's a new one! And what kind of --
  6. (A very narrow rainbow-tinged laser shoots out at Alice, who quickly dodges.)
    Alice: Yeek!
  7. (The view pulls back, showing both Alice and Marisa, who smirks as she continues firing the very narrow laser directly ahead.)
    Alice: .....
  8. Alice: Um ...
  9. (The laser suddenly becomes a freaking huge blast of light which completely engulfs Alice, even as far away as she was.)
    SFX: THOOM

Wait, So PERVERSE LOVE is a real spell card? What does it do? Oh, and I love your comics. Keep it up!

Exactly what it does here (except that a better translation is apparently Perversion "Sure-Fire Master Spark"): it fires a really narrow beam, and then follows it up with a really huge beam.
