Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red

Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red (東方猫佳容 — romanized Touhou Nekokayou, meaning Oriental Cat Prettyface, or possibly "Touhou :3")1 wasa Touhou fan webcomic, mostly updated Sundays. It is made using create.swf (which I will insist of mentally pronouncing "create-sw'ff"), a creation of KirbyM and Thefre. It is over.

Originally, I tried to fit Touhou canon in this fancomic, in the sense that I used canon as a guideline for where to start, and while I didn't meticulously try to ensure that literally everything fit the official established works, I wasn't actually being serious about it.2 However, things have ... diverged.

I'm not entirely sure why I don't think of this comic or the surrounding fan-fiction as being "doujins," since it more or less fits the definition fairly well.3

Also featuring Ask Masha (who is an Original Character).

1Because everything Touhou needs a Japanese name and an English name, and because I am a dork.

2This is still true.

3Apart from merely not being Japanese, but if you have a problem with that in and of itself, you probably shouldn't come here to begin with.

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 ever going to do a comic where Reimu's hack actually loses? It is possible~ 8D (Seems like only Youmu can do it though)


How do u make the comics? I mean how do u join the pics together? :3

I devised a PHP-script which uses GD to take the individual panels, title, logo, etc. and joins them all together, and then the server points requests for the comic's image (of whatever type) at what is actually a PHP file.

Okay, what are you actually asking? Going "???" is about the least helpful thing in existence. :P


i dont really get what u said in that first post...

Dizzy H. Slightly Voided

Short version: I programmed my website to assemble the panels into a single image. ;P

Formica Archonis

Oh, THAT's how it's done. I sometimes wondered, when you'd link to a single frame, why you went through the trouble of uploading a random image like that but this makes much more sense!


Having just made na iamge using create.swf, your comics immediately seem better because I know it can be awkward doing everything in them.

Dizzy H. Slightly Voided

Yep. 's easy to use, and hard to use well.


I have linked to the secnd one I made. Basic idea revolves around a certain pattern that both of the characters in the foreground use - all 5 who faced it are in the background, and the ones who did so twice have a thought bubble and know exactly what's going on.


I did not find Muffin's E-mail, so I will post it here.

I wanted to put your strips on a booru-like (I think) site, so that some people could read it here -- it has one of few Russian Touhou communities, and I doubt anyone would find your site on their own.
I wanted to ask, would you allow it?

The site in question (warning, Russian)

Unrelated: CAPTCHA on-preview is annoying and unneccessary.

Dizzy H. Slightly Voided

Try the "contact" link at the bottom of the site. But okay, I don't mind if you post a few of them.

Unrelated: k I'll do something about that, if I can do so reliably without making it easy to circumvent it. I've been meaning to redo the CAPTCHA code anyway.
