Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #66

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Flandre Scarlet, Koishi Komeiji, Hong Meiling, Three Maid Fairies

Story begins here. Story ends sometime later.

It'd be great to have a girlfriend like Koishi or Satori — you don't need to talk, they know what you're thinking, and there's no danger of them misunderstanding you. The cuteness and snuggly-behavior is practically just a bonus.

Anyway, I learned trigonometry for the purpose of making this comic and getting Koishi's ears properly positioned when I rotated her! I learned how to calculate X and Y from the angle (rotation) and radius, and vice versa! And I spent longer working on a nifty little PHP-app for calculating this than I did on the comic itself. And then I just plain gave up and eyeballed it, because the math wasn't working at all, whee!

The basement-background was made from one of the default backgrounds and the more-generic basement-background in comic #50. Feel free to use and credit me.

Pay no attention to the last panel. It is not a revelation of things to come, I just wanted to use Utsuho since this is comic #66, and she is a ⑥. These aren't the droids you're looking for. Panel 9 does not exist. Thank you, Citizen.

Transcript

  1. (Flandre sits around in the basement, cat-eared and hatless.)
    Flandre: (thought cloud) Stupid sis making me stay in the basement while Sakuya goes off and solves an Incident!
    Flandre: Hmph!
  2. (Koishi arrives, also cat-eared, and with her Third Eye open. Flandre's ears perk up.)
    Koishi: Oh, I can think of a few ways around that ...
    Flandre: Ah! Koishi! You're a kitty, too?
    Flandre: (thought-cloud) Cute!
    SFX: perk
  3. Koishi: (cheerful) Hee, thanks! Yeah, it suddenly happened while I was on my way here. So, wanna jet?
    Flandre: (slyly) Hmm ...
    Flandre: (thought cloud) Maybe *we* could investigate!
  4. Koishi: Ooh, that'd probably be fun! We could beat Sakuya to it and everything!
    Flandre: Your Third Eye will spot the culprit, and if they're baddies, we can beat them up, no problem!
    Flandre SFX: purr
  5. Narration box: Their passage out of the SDM was uneventful.
    (Koishi and Flandre cheerfully walk down the hall invisibly, Flandre carrying a parasol, while Sunny Milk and Star Sapphire inexplicably flee in terror from Meiling, who is grabbing Luna Child's wing.)
    Luna Child: Don't worry about me! Save yourselves!
  6. (Flandre and Koishi in a field; Flandre holds the parasol over her head. Koishi's Third Eye is closed again.)
    Flandre: Okay, we should be far enough away! Now what?
    Koishi: Well, how do the shrine maiden and the witch usually do things?
  7. Flandre: (whimsical) Um, by beating up everyone they meet in increasing order of strength until they meet someone responsible ...
    Koishi: (sweatdrop) Okay, uh, let's skip that for now ...
    Koishi SFX: doesn't want Flan to accidentally explode people
  8. Koishi: But anyway, let's just keep moving for starters! We'll pick up Incident-solving as we go!
    Flandre: Kay!
  9. (Aya and Utsuho stand on the side of the mountain.)
    Utsuho: Okay, what are Scarlet's little sister and Koishi doing?
    Aya: It seems they're going to investigate it on their own ...
    SFX: tengu long-distance sight and hearing
    Utsuho: Unyu! Are they now! Oh ho ho ho ho ho!
    Narration box: This panel is entirely misleading.

The Ace Of Scarabs (Tv-Troper)

Koishi is definitely snuggle-worthy. You've sold me on this Extra Boss Pairing :D

I always positioned the base of cat-ears (or such Unusual Ears, obligatory Trope Warning) where a person's human ears would be, because it felt more natural in my doodling (plus it made it easier and safer to design helmets for such characters).

TyrannoRexaur

Man, the 7th panel made ROFL, "beating everyone they run into in an increasing order of strength" XD

SomethingUnreal

So, is Utsuho thinking this will help her reign above the surface?
She's going to do it any minute now!

Dan-Heron

more catness is always good, though I understand why Sakuya's dogness will keep her from becoming a neko herself, I'm happy to see NeKoishi again! =D Nothing like unleashing Flan on the world.

Hmmm, doom Meiling, long time since I had last seen her. Good stuff.

and, you know, that sign in the last panel could have been a bit bigger, easier for people to see and stuff... or something

Morgan

I was going to comment on the last comic to third or fourth or whatever how cute neko-Koishi is sneaking in... But sneaking out with Flandre is even cuter. ^_^ And Flandre's got her hat back!

I don't know if my view is just slanted from spending so much time playing PoFV, but it does seem like wandering around beating up random people is what happens a lot...

(Incidentally, thanks for telling me about the translation patch for that. I probably wouldn't have found it for months. ^_^; )

Gpop

I...think I saw Komachi...

...damn you Muffin!

(Also, Koishi's already mine [and Flandre's], so yeah).

JPL

Hey, you're probably gonna be doing this for at least a few more comics, so if you want, I can take a look at your code and trig for you. (I once used create.swf to design a small tutorial on data structures to explain an element of MS Paint Adventures' Homestuck, actually.)

If you don't wanna share it with everyone, shoot me an email.

Echo

@JPL: =O someone else reads that?

also... Aya and Okuu are unaffected cause they're birds right?

Poisoner

Shouldn't those two be a little more concerned about becoming dinner for most of Gensokyo?

Morgan

Personally, I see no reason why anyone should be unaffected.

But then, I've got a thing for winged catgirls. `.`

Dizzy H. Muffin

Well, it's more sporiadic; Remilia, Patchouli, and Meiling haven't been affected either, for instance. But yeah, being already a beast-type youkai does get in the way of the effect.

SecksyTaco

As a proud Aya un-fan, I demand more Death Sentence on the left side of that last panel!

(o_O)

Above all else, I fear for Nazrin's safety in the present climate.

Dizzy H. Muffin

@SecksyTaco: I don't do "un-fan" stuff.

@(o_O): Don't worry, this takes place pre-UFO, Nazrin doesn't exist yet.

Pipokary

I think that KirbyM will steal the BG again...

Nya~!

Dizzy H. Muffin

Mmm, probably after I elaborate on it a bit ... I probably shoulda made the back wall be clearly brick or something ...

SomethingUnreal

/ Modified by Dizzy H. Muffin:

@KimikoMuffin: DO WANT to see Remilia with cat ears. Do not want to load Create.swf to make the scene myself.

Morgan

"I just wanted to use Utsuho since this is comic #66, and she is a ⑥."

Now that I think about this... does that mean I should be looking forward to a Cirno appearance in #99? And what about #69?

Satchel

I'm a little baffled by Koishi reading minds. (I thought her third eye was closed?) Am I missing something?

Dizzy H. Muffin

You're missing this.

Satchel

Ah, Eye see. </⑨>

Facteur Rien

I lol'd so hard at the ^^ ^^ faces when they get out SDM.
But I thought that one of the fairies (dunno who) has power to make temselves invisible? How China can get them?
