Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #7

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Yukari Yakumo, Ran Yakumo, Iku Nagae

"SPOOOOOOOOON" is now the official onomatapoeia for the Touhou "death" SFX. And my one regret is that create.swf currently does not support Iku doing her "SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER" pose.

Oh, by the way, for those not actually in the know: this is based on a Pong game built into create.swf; for every large powerup-item (or 20 small powerup-items), you get a pong paddle, with a maximum of four. And when you die, you get two large powerups as a handicap. You can try it by following the link in the disclaimer, spawning the Mysterious Gap from the "Toys" menu, and dragging a character onto it.

A part of me likes Ran's exclamation in the first panel better than the rest of it.

The last panel was updated along with the first comic on 14 September 2008, when KirbyM released official versions of the Just As Planned face.


  1. (Ran enters Yukari's bedroom; Yukari is sleeping on her futon.)
    Ran: Miss Yukari! Come quick! You're being challenged by a fish!
    Yukari: (Sleepy-eyed) Mmm ...?
  2. (Iku hovers at the End of Gensokyo.)
    Iku: Yo, Yukarin! You around here or are ya too chicken?
  3. (Yukari and Ran, floating nearby.)
    Yukari: Chicken!? Yeah, right! Now we must fight, one on one!
    Ran: (eyes narrowed) Uh ... I fail to see how this is one-on-one.
  4. (Wide view, showing all three of them. Iku is has a grin which can be described as either sinister or stupid.)
    Yukari: Ran, shut up! Anyway ... I, Yukari Yakumo, shall defeat Iku Nagae in a game of PONG!
    Ran: But ... what are we going to use for a ball?
  5. (Yukari throws Ran, who starts spinning.)
    Yukari: YOU!
    SFX: throw
    Ran: Augh!
  6. (Ran bounces off Iku's focus-shield.)
    SFX: bonk
    Iku: Ha!
  7. (Ran bounces off Yukari's head.)
    SFX: bump
    Yukari: (grinning) Ow!
  8. (Ran slips past Iku, and a great big "mercy" barrier-shield appears behind her.)
    Iku: Oops!
  9. (Yukari cackles, while two large point-items come up behind her.)
    Yukari: Ahahaha! I've drawn first blood! Bow down before me, mortal!
  10. Yukari: (noticing the point-items) ... huh?
  11. (Iku grabs the point items, and two pong-paddles appear in front of her.)
    SFX: Powerup! Powerup!
  12. (Closeup of Iku with Light Yagami's smirk.)

All Touhou characters are © Team Shanghai Alice and/or ZUN; create.swf is ⑨ KirbyM with help from Thefre. "Sakura petals" brush in main/4koma logo was made by Kisara Girl. "Falling leaves" brush in 60-Years logo came with Photoshop.

You might want to change the author's note on this, as the game was changed so that you no longer get the powerups on death...

I'm actually toying with the idea of making the updates the subject of a future comic.

Young Demon Lord

Y'know, in create.swf, Iku looks sort of like she's wearing giant strips of bacon.

Does this joke go anywhere?


Now I'm picturing a sequel where it starts off the exact same, except for the last four panels...

9: (Yukari cackles, though no point items can be seen.)
Yukari: Ahahaha! I've drawn first blood! Bow down before me, mortal!
10: Yukari: (with a smug expression) What's the matter? Scared because you failed so easily?
11: Iku: (panicked expression) Wh-wh-where are the power-up items? My strategy is ruined!
12: (Closeup of Yukari with Light Yagami's smirk)
