Characters: Shinki, Yumeko, Koakuma, Patchouli Knowledge

I was pondering making something in the 4koma format. It quickly turned into a challenge to see if I could fit the joke into four panels. As a side effect, this might mean being able to make the comic more often. A 4koma is much easier to make than a 9koma, and especially easier than a 17koma.1

Shinki specifically refers to "trying" to keep tabs on Alice, which (along with the basic premise here) suggests that she hasn't entirely been successful.

Yumeko's comment in the second panel refers to the fact that Reimu gave the residents of Makai a beating due to their mere presence in Gensokyo.

I guess it's not necessarily clear enough that Patchouli made a contract with Shinki to summon Koakuma ...

Transcript

  1. (Yumeko and Shinki are standing in Pandaemonium; Shinki is irately looking upward.)
    Shinki: ANNOYING!
    Yumeko: Ah ... what is, Miss Shinki?
    Shinki: I've been watching Gensokyo to try to keep tabs on Alice ... but now I've detected something else that has its origins in Makai!
  2. Shinki: (almost hysterical) And now it's really bugging me and I won't be able to think straight until I go there and find out what it iiiiis!!
    Yumeko: Er, all right ... I ... suppose there's nothing wrong with it as long as you don't bother the shrine maiden ...
  3. Narration box: And so, in Gensokyo ...
    (Shinki appears in a greenish column of light (against a sketchy pink background).)
    Shinki: I, THE DARK GODDESS SHINKI, DEMAND TO KNOW WHAT --
  4. (She's in the SDM's library, in front of a terrified Koakuma.)
    Shinki: -- er ... oh. It's *you*.
    Koakuma: H-hello, M-Miss Sh-Shinki ...
    Patchouli: (leaning into the panel) Yes, hi, we moved into Gensokyo a while after I made the summoning contract with you.

1This also cuts down on what else I have to say about it ...
