Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #63

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Remilia Scarlet, Patchouli Knowledge, Alice Margatroid, Shanghai, Sunny Milk, Marisa Kirisame

Not continuing from the previous comic.

I figure Patchouli and Remilia would have been friends for hundreds of years, even before Patchy summoned Koakuma, and long before they met Sakuya. I was considering putting the whole SDM crew there, but it just got too crowded.

In Immaterial and Missing Power, Patchy states that she rates peoples' ability to stop intruders as "catness," since intruders like Marisa are referred to as "rats", on a scale of 1 to 96 (the closest multiple of both three and four to 100, though she never specifies why this is so important).

Hm. This is the first time someone's called Marisa "the black-white" since Retelling of Scarlet Devil, even though it's semi-common in the games.

This is also the first time Shanghai has raised a frying pan to Marisa in a comic, rather than in prose.

Custom content: I took the bookshelf from the standard library-background for its appearance in panel 4; I put the eyes from eye #13 into the position for eye #12 for panel 6; the background thereof is the Sketchy BG with the colors inverted in MSPaint; and this squiggly-line thing.


  1. (Remilia and Patchouli drink tea in the SDM.)
    Remilia: Wow, having tea with you is really nostalgic. It's just like old times, when it was just you and me ...
    Patchouli: With Flandre in the basement.
  2. Remilia: Hah. Yes. Though isn't it a bit ... unusual for you to leave the library unattended? You're usually on full Marisa-defense when Meiling's off the clock.
    SFX: she wanted to have the same off-duty time as Sakuya
    Patchouli: Ah, yes, that's actually part of an experiment ...
  3. (Sketchy pink background; image of Marisa getting hit by various magical attacks from a bookcase, and a closeup of the upper half of Patchouli's head.)
    Patchouli: My new "Ratcatcher" ward system will detect any rats which try to enter my library.
    Remilia: (off-panel) Can't you sense when someone tries to steal your books already?
    Patchouli: Yes, but only after the fact. The Ratcatcher will stop them in advance, and functions as a fully-automated defense mechanism.
  4. (Back to the tea party.)
    Remilia: (somewhat unimpressed) Uh-huh. And how likely is it to cause more trouble for the defenders than the attackers?
    Patchouli: Oh, don't worry -- it's designed to ignore "cats" and other legitimate visitors. I estimate that its catness rating will be 81.
  5. Remilia: (thoughtful) Hm. Well, I guess you've put a lot of work and thought into this, then. I suppose the only thing to do now is wait for an attack ...
    Patchouli: Yes, I suppose there's only so much you can do in a testing environment ...
  6. (Dynamic closeup of Patchouli as she Senses Something!)
    Text: BOOK THIEF!
  7. (Patchouli hurriedly puts down the teacup and turns to fly away.)
    Patchouli: I'm sorry, I must go to the library!
    Remilia: Ah ... I suppose it can't be helped, then.
  8. (They fly along through the hallway.)
    Patchouli: And why didn't it set off the Ratcatcher?
    Remilia: Uh, dunno. Maybe it took you literally?
    SFX: since the black-white is a human, not a rat
  9. (They encounter Alice, who (along with Shanghai) is walking down the hall the other way, escorted by Sunny Milk.)
    Sunny Milk: She should be ... ah!
    Alice: (annoyed) Starting to get tiresome, isn't it?
    Patchouli: Yes, follow us.
  10. (At the library, Marisa is grabbing books off the shelf; she has cat-ears and a tail, and feline eyes and a cat-like smirk. Alice and Patchouli are just entering; Shanghai is holding a frying pan.)
    Patchouli: ... oh.
    Remilia: (off-panel) You mean I was *right*?
    Marisa: Nyan, ze.
    Alice: Sigh ...
