Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #54

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Hong Meiling, Sakuya Izayoi

Oops, I did it again. I couldn't resist the joke, though ... I seriously need to get this rampant shipping under control ... :x

Hong Meiling: the first Create.swf character. Y'know, it's interesting to see how KirbyM's skills have improved over the years; just compare the detail in Meiling and Sakuya with that of e.g. UFO-Marisa, or even the Watatsukis. I suppose if KirbyM gets really strapped for ideas on who to add to create.swf, instead of zero-official-art characters like Rin Satsuki and Layla Prismriver, one idea would be to retouch everyone up to, let's say, Remilia or the Lilies or thereabouts.

I had to use some advanced Photoshop techniques, like "curved lines" and "putting a special-effect-thingy on only part of the image." (That sort of outline in the eighth panel wasn't entirely intentional, but I think I like the effect.)


  1. (Sakuya and Meiling are facing off in the path in front of the SDM. Meiling's badge on her hat says "I'm totally a dragon.")
    Narration box: Testing the gate guard's effectiveness
  2. (Sakuya and Meiling jump into the air, knife and fists raised.)
  3. (Sakuya throws a bunch of knives at Meiling. Meiling flies up and dodges them all.)
  4. (Camera zooms in. Meiling does a flying kick towards Sakuya (not that it looks like one).)
    Meiling: GAOOOOOO!
  5. (Sakuya evades, and thrusts out with her knife.)
    Sakuya SFX: stab
    Meiling SFX: dodge
  6. (Sakuya assumes the Dio Brando pose.)
    Spell Card: Illusion World 「ZA WARUDO!」
  7. (Sakuya floats over to Meiling while time is stopped.)
  8. (The background changes to pink hearts as Sakuya plants a kiss on Meiling's lips, startling her.)
  9. Sakuya: (blushing and grinning) PENALTY!
    Meiling: (blushing more) Th-That doesn't count! That "trick" only works if it's you!

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.

Heh... rampant shipping... interesting terminology there

Well, I mean, I can't resist putting together an excessive number of pairings. |3;


It's good to see that Meiling's still totally a dragon.
Muffin Sign "Rampant Shipping."


Lovely! Glad the move was a success.


Muffin Sign: "Rampant Shipping"
Lots of pairings! I would love to see a love chart of as many Touhou characters in Walfas art as possible!


Can't describe how happy I felt when I saw one of my favorite pairings here at Scarlet Weather Archive... as always, lots of internets and cookies for you, noble Muffin. Attack all Gensokyo with your Rampant Shipping!

Um ... I'd rather not, Arlekin ... |3;


These Are Awesome I Should Read all Of Um*There are 54*...Maybe some other time...
Also How Long Has Meiling Been a Dragon.

Cat Megex

...And now I am suddenly wondering who Meiling would be voiced by if she ends up with a speaking part in the next episode of that Touhou Anime Project. (The one with Rie Tanaka as Sakuya.)

@ChuBakaThe⑨: Well, her hat canonically has the symbol for "dragon" on it. I decided to put something more silly there instead. :3

More rampant shipping eh?
Ah well, nothing unexpected.

Comic #54s rating is "Totally average".
