Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #26

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Mugetu, Gengetu, Marisa Kirisame, Tokiko, Reisen Udongein Inaba, Reimu Hakurei, Alice Margatroid

Once the initial pun entered my head, and I'd extrapolated all subsequent puns from that, the whole thing practically wrote itself.

Mugetu and Gengetu are the extra-bosses of Lotus Land Story, and live in a "dream world" separate from Gensokyo. My reasoning is, they're Extra Bosses (so they'd be powerful), and they live in a "dream world", so they might have some ability to enter dreams or something. I suppose I wasn't really telegraphing the first part of the punchline in the first panel there ...

You probably would have been able to guess that there were shennanigans going on if you were paying attention to Reisen and Tokiko in panels 5 and 6. Meanwhile, I passed up a golden opportunity to engage in "rickrolling" or something as a followup to the "that's not how we roll" line.

"Yukkuri Shiteitte Ne"/"Take It Easy" is ... uh ... you know what, just look here.

Yes, Marisa sleeping over at Alice's is, indeed, meant to be a regular occurrance.

I wanted to include a joke about Reimu being titled "Don Maku," but I forgot. T.T

Transcript

  • (Marisa is being chased through a sketchy field by Mugetu and Gengetu.)
    Gengetu: We will have our revenge for that previous extra stage!
    Marisa: (scared) Halp, I'm being plagued by nightmares!
    Mugetu: Don't think you can escape your fate just because you're dressed differently!
  • (The chasing stops, as Marisa is intercepted by hired goons Reisen and Tokiko (both wearing sunglasses and Reisen's uniform).)
    Reisen: Nuh-uh. The witch is comin' with us.
    Gengetu: Aw, darn it!
    Tokiko: The *boss* wants to *speak* with you.
    Marisa: Uh-oh ...
    Mugetu: Nah, I think this works out better for us ...
  • (Marisa is sent to the sketchy Hakurei Shrine, where Reimu, wearing Yukari's clothes, is waiting. Reisen is holding Marisa's broom, while Tokiko is holding the Hakkero.)
    Marisa: Oh, uh, hi, Reimu, what's up?
    Reimu: Well, I'm bringin' you here to talk about the "entirely voluntary shrine donations" ...
  • (Reimu approaches Marisa in an attempt to intimidate her. It obviously works.)
    Reimu: (angry) Seein' as how you owe me the past MONTH'S worth.
    Marisa: (worried) Ah ... look, I can explain! I just need to snag a couple more books, and then --
  • (Reisen is now holding the Hakkero, while Tokiko is holding the broom. Marisa is becoming progressively more afraid of Reimu.)
    Reimu's sunglasses SFX: Disappear!
    Reimu: Marisa, Marisa, Marisa ... that just isn't how we roll here.
    Marisa: Fine, fine. Uh, not how you roll. Uh. So, how *do* you need to roll?
  • (Reisen's sunglasses turn into regular, rectangular glasses. Tokiko's sunglasses become Gurren Lagann shades.)
    Reimu: Marisa, we've been pals fer a long time, but now you gotta get ... punished.
    Marisa: (paralyzed with fear) Punished ... how?
  • (The scene changes to a sketchy pink background. Reimu, who is now twice as large as Marisa, is sternly looking down upon her.)
    Reimu: Your punishment is ...
  • (Reimu turns into a Yukkuri.)
    Yukkureimu: to TAKE IT EASY!
    Marisa: YEEEARGHLEBLARGLE
  • (Marisa wakes up in the middle of the night in bed with a still-sleeping Alice (this is in Alice's house).)
    Marisa: (thought cloud) ?
  • (Back in the dream world, Mugetu and Gengetu watch on.)
    Mugetu: Aww, darn it! She woke up!
    Gengetu: See? I *told* you we'd end up just getting interrupted if we tried to attack her in her dreams directly!

PMiller1

I got the RickRoll :D Yeah!!!

Facteur Rien

???? Have you done several version of this comic? I was pretty sure that the only available version was the yukkuri, and then, Eye've got rick-rolled!!

Kitsune Inari

I find it curious how you use Hepburn for some names (like Shameimaru, Onozuka and Fujiwara) and Kunrei for others (like Mugetsu and Gengetsu); similarly, you consistently
spell Tewi's name with a "wi"
, then you say Tenshi Hinanawi without it. Perhaps justified in the latter case since Tenshi seems to be (IIRC) relatively young and might perhaps have been born after the wi was dropped.

Just saying.

Kimiko Muffin

I do whichever I'm more familiar with and think looks better. ;3

PriffyViole
