Here begins story! I forgot to mention in the last comic, Catness was now twice as long as RoSD ... oh dear, I'm comparing this one to that again, aren't I?

I wasn't originally planning on making a comic where each panel showed a different "camera angle" (except 7 and 8), it just turned out that way.

I just thought I'd get Panel 1's explanation for the events of Touhou 12.3 out of the way while it was on my mind. (For that matter, Mugetsu has probably given the most sensible answer to "Are you sure this is going to work?" out of all the ones given in this comic so far.) I'll probably have to have the Getsu sisters actually do something, eventually ... But this is the first half of my acknowledgements of the new Touhou games. I thought it would be appropriate to reveal it in this storyline, given what kind of fish it is.

Hooray, KirbyM added "Koishi's Third Eye open" to create.swf! Now I can ... um ... continue to use photoshop for every single panel she appears in, because I still need to color her ears.

As for the last few panels: I've been thinking of that for a while, too. All it is, is a dozen or so danmaku patterns made out of the "cat" object. Not the most perfect or elegant solution (har hrar), but it does what it's meant to do well enough.


  1. Narration box: Meanwhile, in some kinda dreamworld ...
    (Mugetsu and Gengetsu are standing against the cartoony background of Meiling's story mode endboss, with the giant catfish standing next to them.)
    Gengetsu: Are you sure *this* plan for getting back at the witch is gonna work?
    Mugetsu: No, but don't worry -- that's why we're gonna test it on the Scarlet Gatekeeper first.
    Mugetsu: (aside) She'll probably think it's some kind of Chinese god of calamity or something.
  2. Narration box: And so our heroines, having defeated -- um, wait ... oh.
    (Flandre (cat-eared) and Koishi (cat-eared, Third Eye open) are fighting against Tenshi in the Moriya Shrine's yard, with Cirno on the ground behind them. Tenshi is standing on a Stone of the Celestials, her Hisou sword drawn.)
    Cirno: (aside) Fairies shouldn't die that many times in succession ...
    Flandre: Why can't we beat her!?
    Koishi: It's her "Stone of the Celestials" ... Can you destroy that?
  3. (Closeup of Flandre and Koishi (with Cirno still visible). Cirno hops to her feet.)
    Flandre: Um ... I *sort of* could. But I can kind of sense what kind of destruction it might cause, and, well ...
    Koishi: (alarmed) What!? Shatter Gensokyo's history!? Okay, um, never mind ...
    Cirno SFX: hop up
  4. (Closeup of Tenshi against a sketchy dark background.)
  5. (Closeup of cat-eared Marisa against a sketchy pink background.)
  6. (Marisa (now in her UFO outfit) is standing on the porch of the Moriya Shrine; Tenshi turns to face her, ignoring a sudden hail of ice-danmaku.)
    Tenshi: What? When did *you* get here? (aside) And what's with the crazy outfit?
    Marisa: Me? I got here just now, ze!
    Tenshi: I mean ... how did you sneak by without me noticing?
    Marisa: Hey, I just *got* here!
  7. (Reimu (cat-eared) and Sakuya arrive near Koishi, Flandre, and Cirno.)
    Koishi: Oh, hi ... Yeah, it was Tenshi, she used a Stone of the Celestials to spread the Catness via "shiny objects" ...
    Tenshi: (off-panel) Wh ... but ... how!?
    Marisa: (off-panel) By gettin' here!
    Cirno: Attack no worky!!
  8. (Reimu and Sakuya land. Cirno gets Hisou thrown into her face.)
    Sakuya: Hmm. Flandre, knowing that, would you be able to destroy the spell?
    Flandre: Um, I dunno ... I'll try, though ...
    Tenshi: (off-panel) *How* did you get here!?
    Marisa: (off-panel) On a broom, duh!
    Cirno SFX: spooooon
  9. (Back at the view right in front of the shrine; Marisa turns away from Tenshi.)
    Tenshi: LISTEN, YOU --
    Marisa: But why don't we see what's on the other side of this door!
  10. (Marisa approaches the door with a cat-like smirk.)
    Tenshi: W-WAIT!
    Koishi: (off-panel, alarmed) Huh? Uh ... Marisa!
  11. (Marisa opens the shrine door, revealing that it is completely stuffed with cats, and she blanches.)
  12. (They all fly away in alarm, as the cats swarm out of the shrine.)
    Marisa: RUN FOR IT!
  13. (The panel is completely swamped by cats.)

HEY, there IS no 'too much anime,' only smaller increments of 'almost enough.'
