Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #9

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame, Cirno, Daiyousei

Story begins here.

Cirno's "Icicle Fall" spellcard is infamous for, in Easy Mode, having a "safe spot" right in front of her where you'll be safe from her attacks. (It doesn't quite work on higher difficulties, though ...) That said, I had to personally put in every single "branch" of that danmaku pattern. That was probably the most work I've done within create.swf on any individual item. Whew!

I tried to indicate that Cirno was thrown backwards off the screen by the force of Marisa's Master Spark. I guess that worked ...

It should be noted that I began the parody of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil with the eighth comic in the series, solely so that Cirno would be the star of comic number nine.

Transcript

  1. (Reimu (short-haired like in EoSD) and Marisa fly through the night sky, fighting off fairies with amulets and light-beams respectively; Marisa has a pair of circles floating around her, and Reimu has a pair of yin-yang orbs.)
    Marisa: Dang, this stage is a bunch harder than the first one ...
    Reimu: Yeah, really ... I actually have to get out the Hakurei yin-yang orbs!
  2. (A defeated fairy drops point-items and powerups towards Reimu. Daiyousei flies into the panel.)
    Marisa: Then I'm gettin' out *my* options! ... and why haven't we seen any of the red mist lately? Did it get scared?
    Reimu: Because it never appears in the actual game, of course!
    Daiyousei: Um ... hey!
  3. (Reimu collects the items, and another group of items falls towards Marisa.)
    Reimu SFX: powerup!
    Marisa: Hm? Who're you?
    Daiyousei: Um, I'm called Daiyousei.(footnote: lit."great fairy") I'm here to warn you about another fairy here -- she can be dangerous to humans because of her ice magic.
    Reimu: Is she the stage 2 boss?
  4. (Marisa collects her items.)
    Marisa SFX: powerup!
    Daiyousei: Um ... I guess so, yeah.
    Marisa: So you aren't mad cuz we beat up those other fairies?
    Daiyousei: (partially obscured by the next line) Uh, no ... I mean, they did attack you first. Anyway, you should be careful around here, because the ice fairy who lives around here might come out and try to freeze you.
    Cirno: (off-panel) OUTTA MY WAY!
    Reimu: Hmm?
  5. (Cirno rushes in, knocking out Daiyousei.)
    Marisa: What the ...?
    Cirno: I'm gonna freeze you both to death to prove that I, Cirno, am the strongest one of all!
    Reimu: Really? Any particular reason?
    Daiyousei: Ack!
  6. (Reimu and Marisa seem more amused than worried.)
    Cirno: Hey! You have a powerful enemy in front of you! Be more surprised!
    Reimu: So, a bigger target, then?
  7. (Closeup of Cirno against a sketchy pink background, plus a ghostly spell card image.)
    Cirno: W-what!? How dare you!
    Spell Card: Ice Sign 「Icicle Fall」
  8. (Cirno releases two streams of bullets.)
    Marisa: Gah! Looks like these Spell Cards are gettin' popular!
    Cirno: Aaaahahahahaha!
    Reimu: Ack, yeah ... You thought of any cards you might do, Marisa?
  9. (Reimu and Marisa move closer to Cirno as other streams of bullets begin to fill the area everywhere except directly in front of Cirno. Cirno grins wickedly, apparently oblivious to this.)
    Marisa: Well, the ...
  10. (The two heroines find themselves perfectly safe almost at point blank range in front of Cirno.)
    Marisa: Um ...
  11. Marisa: Say, you know that one move I got offa Yuka?
    Reimu: Yeah ... why?
  12. (A spell card image of Marisa appears, and Cirno becomes alarmed.)
    Blue Spell Card: Love Sign 「Master Spark」
  13. (Marisa blasts Cirno off the panel.)
    Cirno: WAUGH!
