Characters: Sakuya Izayoi, Hong Meiling, Mugetsu, Gengetsu, Meimu

東方再想天則 〜 Rethinking the Natural Law (Touhou 12.3i) begins here. I forgot to mention last week, but I slightly updated Rin's theme, which is now titled "Strange Bird of the Moon, Illusion of Mysterious Cat ~ On The Shoulder of Hisou Tensoku," and also, the "pre-battle conversation with Rin" theme is the title screen music.

So, now we learn something about Sakuya's backstory — she was a youkai-slayer called Huntress who disappeared when she went off to fight Remilia in 1997! Of course, you might have known this already if you're paying attention. But I will now liken the sisters' panic-attack to if you suddenly realized that the retail clerk you've been harassing is actually The Terminator. (Thank you, Mokou, for creating the image! Here's the full version.)

I didn't get a chance to use all the "floating black thingies" I'd made, oh well. Mugetsu and Gengetsu, if this were actually in the fighting game, would be a "single character" whose gimmick is that you're playing both of them, and you switch between them with a particular move (some alt-cards allow you to attack in the process). Mugetsu is the fast one and Gengetsu is the strong one; their ability-cards are specific to whichever one you're playing as, but their Spell Cards can be used by either, though they may have different effects depending on which one is out. Their themesong is called "The Inevitably Forbidden Game ~ Icemilk Magic and Innocence," and their associated weather-pattern is Blue Moon, resembling Mugetsu's background, and has the effect of (a) replacing your moves with alt-moves of a random level whether or not you have the appropriate alt-cards, and (b) causing people who hate the weather system to go berserk.

But none of that matters now, because we finally meet the last boss, Meimu! And she's ... more loli than you were probably expecting! Her themesong ... well ... I've had composer's block on that, and Touhou 12.3 already has a "Story Mode final boss theme," so she can have that. Her "pre-battle conversation" theme, however, is titled "Aperture Girl." And that's all I have to say about that for now.

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.

Wow, Mugetsu's introduction sounds like Nero's from the new Star Trek movie, I guess that's an homage? or, am I wrong?

Dizzy H. Muffin

I think you mean Meimu's introuction. And no, I haven't actually seen the new Star Trek movie. I know I ought to, but ...

Merry Christmas!!!
Let's see what I can make up: Meimu is the evil reincarnation of Reimu from the future who studied under Yukari and joined the Yakumo demon clan. Sakuya is secretly a member of Lunarian nobility or she's a relative of Eirin or she and Eirin grew up together.

So Meimu is from 178? Two Year before Fate of 60 Years? And came back in Time Just making sure what will happen, happen?

Dizzy H. Muffin

According to her, yes. You only have her word for it. ;)

How do I 'download' create.swf? I am trying to do this so I could import some pics I've made...

SoF

You can get create.swf here, at Walfas's site (Walfas does the art, Thefre does the programming). If you want to download it for offline use, go to the File > Save Page As... menu entry in your web browser.

Also, if you'd rather run create.swf outside your browser, you can download the Flash Player 10 Standalone Debugger, which will allow you to open up .swf files that you have saved.

Hooray, my "automatically close tags" function works!

Also the creator of create.swf is called KirbyM, "Walfas" is just the name of his/her site for some reason.

I'm gonna guess that the comic's being held up due to the recent create.swf update. Is it going to be put up soon-ish, or are you going to skip this week's update entirely?

Hmm, need to say more so I don't sound complainy... um... I know! Discuss: Was Meiling's breaking of the Spell Card rules morally justified? -brick'd repeatedly-

Sorry, sorry... you know, I'm still confused. This arc is (supposed to be) just above halfway over, and we don't have any kind of answers. What the steak is going on?

Dizzy H. Muffin

Funny you should mention the comic getting held up ... ;3
