Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #76

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Flandre Scarlet, Cirno, Koishi Komeiji, Mima, Tenshi Hinanai

Story begins here! Oh dear, the end is nowhere in sight again.

I've actually been planning on having Cirno say "Okay, even I think that's stupid!" for a while, now (as in, before I knew exactly who the culprit would be). Ditto Koishi pointing out the culprit by reading their mind.

Panel 9 and 11 are the only ones that didn't require photoshop in some capacity, because Koishi's ears and tail were not visible in them.

Actually, the Nice Boat required a little bit of photoshopping, to get it small enough to be acceptable for the comic (both filesize and panel-size, and I did the latter in IrfanView). I also just wanted to do a panel with silly "beating up" SFX.

Oh look, create.swf update. KirbyM added heart-danmaku just in time to be too late for the last comic ... (Speaking of which, since I didn't get to commentate on that: Koishi's the only character there who'd been in a game where a "flash background-change" happened.)


  1. (Koishi (cat-eared), Cirno, and Flandre (cat-eared) face off against what appears to be Mima, against that epic background with the torii atop the mountain against the full moon.)
    Cirno: (with an expression of stupidity) I dunno who that is.
    Flandre: Um, Koishi, she doesn't look anything like you described her.
    Koishi: Hmm ... Well, um ...
    Mima: Oh ho ho ho ho! I don't know who you were expecting, but I, the dark spirit Mima, will --
  2. (Switch to the opposite direction; Mima and Koishi against a dark night sky.)
    Koishi: (unimpressed) "Uh-oh, how does she know what I usually look like?"
    Mima: (panicked sweatdrop) W-what!? But ... but that's ...
  3. (Mima blanches and shrinks back.)
    Koishi: Well, I'm a satori. I can go and *look* at what you're thinking, TENSHI.
    Mima: (sweatdrop) Ah! N-no, it's not what you're thinking, you're reading my mind wrong, it's supposed to be "ten" as in "ceremony" and "shi" as in "death"!
  4. (Back to the other view; Koishi, Flandre, and Cirno all have identical "total logic failure" expressions.)
    Text: .....
  5. ("Mima" transforms in a puff of smoke into an irate Tenshi, standing on a Stone of the Celestials.)
    Flandre: "Reading your mind wrong"?
    Cirno: Okay, even *I* think that's stupid!
    Koishi: Yeah, seriously.
  6. (Tenshi turns away, pouting. Cirno has a cat-smile.)
    Flandre: So, what was her deal?
    Tenshi: Hmph!
    Koishi: (cheerfully) Boredom. She used that "Stone of the Celestials" to give herself a power boost so she could turn people all over Gensokyo into cats.
  7. Flandre: Isn't that just one of those earthquake-keystones she uses as weapons?
    Tenshi: (turning back cheerfully) Nah, those have paper seals hanging from the rope.
    Koishi: Yeah ... uh, you know, Tenshi, most people don't cause Incidents *specifically* so that people will stop them.
  8. Tenshi: (brightly cheerful) That just means I'm unique!
    Flandre: ... Are we gonna punish her for this?
    Kosihi: Mm, I suppose we ought to.
    Cirno: Hooray!
  9. (Semi-closeup of Tenshi, brandishing her Hisou sword.)
    Tenshi: Punish me!? I'm a Celestial, with a boost from a Stone of the Celestials! What chance do you think you have against me!?
  10. (Closeup of Koishi, Flandre, and Cirno against a reddish background.)
    Koishi: (wicked grin) Why, a rather good one, actually!
    Flandre: (murderous grin) Have you ever fought an EX-Boss who wasn't just fooling around before?
    Cirno: (cheerful grin) I'm the strongest!
  11. (Cut to the memetic "nice boat" screen.)
    Tenshi: (off-panel) Huh? The strongest what, exac--
    SFX: POW

And now, since the culprit has been actually revealed, solutions to all hints and steganography techniques can be found here! Congratulations to the correct guess: yes, I was trolling everyone with the Mima reveal (Warning, link leads to TVTropes. Muffin will not be held responsible for hours of time lost as a result of following it.But see also this disclaimer).

Well look at that, right from the moment I actually guessed at it.

As a mostly unrelated note, I have now had the privilege of beating the crap out of Tenshi with Cirno in UNL. Now if only Koishi and Flandre were in there...

*Blink* Isn't what she normally pals around on a stone of the celestials.
Being she's a celestial, and it's a stone, and they look pretty much the same.

Also punishing tenshi is pointless, seeing as she's masochistic, dead, and went to heaven.


Nice Boat.

Cirno's I'm the strongest was timed like a genius.


those 2 last panels are just hilarious XD Great censoring!

Dizzy H. Muffin

*takes a bow* Thank you, thank you, thank you ...


On the subject of that NICE BOAT panel.


Am I touching into something?

Dizzy H. Muffin

Yes. |3


The *BABOON* sound effect is the best, though.


Oh, it sounds like Tenshi is finding that her hitbox is too ⑨ for -Icicle Fall (Easy)-!


That was great, I think Tenshi bit off WAY more than she could chew. Koishi alone perhaps, Flandre alone sure, but combined with a (9) on the side? pwnage. And I can imagine Tenshi trying to avoid the two's attack running into Icicle Fall -easy-.


Cirno doesn't even *use* Icicle Fall anymore. Or at least, the wiki page for UNL I was looking at doesn't list it. `.`

(UNL actually makes me think "... Just how powerful *is* Cirno, really?", since her final stage in story mode takes place in what ought to be the worst place imaginable for her...)

End nowhere in sight, huh? I wonder if Reimu & Co. will be meeting an extra boss for this incident. `.`


At least it's not a giant catfish.


How strong is Cirno? She´s the Strongest!!!

And Tenshi must be in Heaven in the last panel. :D


Oh geez two EX-bosses who are serious and Cirno, and me not believing Tenshi's a masochist, OW. Also, I kept imagining the onomatopoeia of a small boat horn sounding out the sound effects in short bleeps along with a long drawn out bellow like at a lighthouse sounding 'SPOOOOON.'
