Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #47

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Lily White, Koakuma, Momizi Inubashiri, Three Mischievous Fairies

So yeah. I thought that since it was spring, I should do a comic with Lily White in it. And then I decided to make it about the other named stage 4 mid-bosses as well. (Excluding IN and SA, which don't have unique stage-4 midbosses, and PoFV, which doesn't have consistent stages at all.1)

In the second panel, Koakuma is referring to the events of Strange and Bright Nature Deity. The reason that topic more or less ended there is that at the time of this writing, the only translated chapters go up to 7 (which ends with Remilia announcing her intentions for Sakuya to do this), and who knows when it's going to be translated, much less edited for public consumption.

This isn't the first time Those Three Blasted Fairies have tried being maids in the SDM; they did that practically at the beginning of SaBND. Sakuya chased them out for not working at all, though ...

Koakuma's explanation in panel 6 for Lily's semirandom appearances in Phantasmagoria of Flower View is, in fact, ZUN's. At least ... that's the explanation according to the wiki. I should find a source for that.

I have nothing to say about the punch line.


  1. (Lily White flying in the sky, launching a swarm of danmaku.)
  2. (Koakuma and Momizi watch her from a safe distance.)
    Momizi: Oh, there's Lily White, announcing Spring.
    Koakuma: Ah, yeah ... you know, Remilia-sama once ordered Sakuya to kidnap her ...
    SFX: was delivering books to youkai mountain
  3. Momizi: Really? That doesn't seem to have stopped her now.
    Koakuma: (sweatdrop) Well, uh ... you know how those things turn out ...
  4. Koakuma: We've actually ended up on much better terms lately. She hibernates through fall and winter, so she needed something to do in summer.
    Momizi: Oh?
  5. (Sakuya leading Lily White and the Three Fairies through the Mansion. Lily is reacting with perplexity to the shock and horror of the trio.)
    Sakuya: You'll be "paid" directly in food and shelter. I'm also going to institute a policy to fight slackers, in which you get fed directly according to how much work you do ...
    Lily SFX: ...?
    Trio SFX: second only to Komachi in slacking
    Trio SFX: stunned by the news
  6. (Back at the mountain.)
    Momizi: And she ... doesn't mind working there? Even though Remilia ...?
    Koakuma: Well, she *did* mistake the sudden appearance of the flowers at the end of the most recent 60-year-cycle for spring happening again ...
  7. (Lily White descends to where they are.)
    Momizi: *Both* of them. Oh, uh, hi.
    Lily: Another successful spring!
    Koakuma: But it's ... not even April ...
  8. Lily: Huh ...? No, I just meant making my rounds announcing Spring!!
    Momizi: Maybe you should've been clearer, then.
    Koakuma: (sweatdrop) At least, um, you're energetic about it ...
  9. (Lily jumps up, setting off more danmaku, hitting Momizi; Koakuma is alarmed.)
    Lily: I can't help it, it's SPRING!
    Momizi: Gahh! Ow, watch it!
    Koakuma: (sweatdrop) Ahh, hey! Can't you try using something less dangerous than danmaku?
  10. Lily: Um, hmm ... I've been kinda wondering about that, actually ...
    Momizi: (sweatdrop) Right, you think about that. Koa, let's just continue going down the mountain.
    Koakuma: Right.
  11. (Koakuma and Momizi leave.)
    Lily: Wait, I've got it!
  12. (Lily White flying in the sky, launching a swarm of bed springs.)

1And it has Lily in it anyway.

Lolwut? Springs in spring?


I just noticed there's a typo in the 10th picture; Lily says actulally instead of actually.

Also, completely random place to say this, but I think this webcomic is great.

There is no longer a typo in the 10th picture panel! :P


Panel! That's the word! I sat there for a while trying to remember what it was before giving up.
