Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #29

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Shinki, Remilia Scarlet, Koakuma, Patchouli Knowledge

A side-effect of a shorter format is the increased likelihood of engaging in The Dreaded Continuity. In any event, this will hopefully explain the remaining confusion from the previous comic.

The logic goes something like this: Shinki, according to herself in Mystic Square, created everyone and everything in Makai. Koakuma (at least in this comic) was originally summoned from Makai. Therefore, Shinki created Koakuma. At any rate, nobody from Makai seems particularly concerned about the fact that Shinki created them. I guess it saves them lots of effort which would have been spent philosophizing about The Reason We Exist, when you can just go up to your creator and ask. (This leaves open the question: did Shinki make her "creations" able to reproduce? And if so, can she be said to have created their children?)

Fanon is silent on why Alice is her daughter, but none of the other characters in Mystic Square are. Perhaps it's because Alice was the youngest character there, and fanon as a whole either has too much imagination, or too little. I'll deal with that later.

The central joke seemed funnier in my head, I swear. ;_;

Transcript

  1. (Shinki is meeting with Patchouli, Remilia, and Koakuma (who is cowering behind Patchouli) in the SDM hallway.)
    Remilia: So, you're the goddess of Makai, who created Patchouli's little devil for her to summon.
    Shinki: Yeah ... I was experimenting in creating bespoke summons, since not many people summon demons anymore, so I can focus on quality instead of quantity.
    Koakuma SFX: hiding behind Patchy
  2. Shinki: (excitedly turning to Patchouli) But yeah. Anyway, what cool name did you come up with for her? I wanna hear!!
    Patchouli: Well, everyone just calls her Koakuma(footnote: tr. "Little Devil"), so we've sort of just stuck with that.
  3. (Shinki is frozen, not quite so excited anymore.)
    Text: .....
  4. (Shinki turns back to Remilia. Koakuma sweatdrops as she recovers from her fear.)
    Shinki: Well, uh, I'm gonna go visit Alice. Talk to you later!
    Remilia: Don't be that much of a stranger!

Beta-Maxis

It says in Perfect Memento that Makai has miasma within the air that is physically draining/damaging, but increases magic potential. Maybe Alice just went inside with her grimoire for some training? And to placate the fanon/I like the idea, Shinki developed protective feelings for her (like she has for the rest of her creations) because she's a nice person/child in such a realm is vulnerable.
