メイドさんの日々 ~ Maid-san no Hibi

Posted by meronpan on August 20, 2009

A touhou gem I stumbled upon at niconico.  Incredibly kawaii~ touhou 4-koma by colonel aki.  niconico user 零壱 (old style characters for 01 so… reiichi i guess?) set the comics to music and made wonderful video versions.  First one below or click for niconico.

Most of the text is just for comic titles so you don’t need to know Japanese to appreciate it… though being touhou, it would help to be familiar with the characters ^^;  Mostly focuses Sakuya’s daily life (hence the title) and the residents of the 紅魔館 (koumakan – Scarlet Devil Mansion).

Sakuya and Hong are the main adults from the mansion while remilia, flandre, patchy, and the like have been rendered as chibi kids.  This interpretation of the characters sets sakuya in a motherly role and hong is up to her usual slacking off.

Many of the usual running gags associated with each character play themselves out in various ways – Hong’s laziness as a guard, Patchy’s hikikomori tendencies, Sakuya’s pad’s  ^^;

The characters aren’t just limited to eosd either – though I think I’d say youmu and yuyuko get the most attention out of the others.

The only problem with the series is that the videos have basically consumed all of the content colonel aki has created so far… so it’ll be awhile before the next video is out! orz

A note about the following movie, it’s just a very brief conclusion along with credits.

It marked the end of the first series of movies, which, for whatever reason stopped at 4.  Now 零壱 is making Maid-san no Hibi II, below.

They’re just more of colonel aki’s comics… Except for parts 3 and 4, the beach trip arc above, the first set of movies wasn’t too connected so not really sure why he felt the need to make this “II” ^^;

Ah well.  If you can’t wait for more you might want to subscribe to colonel aki‘s blog to get the new comics as they come out.  He seems to be fairly prolific so new stuff comes out every 2-5 days.

In personal touhou news I’ve been practicing eosd reimuB normal lately… can get to remelia’s scarlet shoot fairly often in practice mode and made 2 really really close runs today starting with the default 3 lives.  The second one was devastating… first of all because of two stupid deaths.  Here’s the second one…  waste a life and bomb in stock on what should’ve been a routine card -_-

Have to bomb during scarlet shoot but make it to red magic, use my final bomb about half way through…

So far.  I eat it when I don’t notice the incoming purple ball of death in time and am cornered between the red bullets ;_;

Still though, victory is in sight!!!  If only I could capture patchy’s first two cards and deal with scarlet netherworld… anyone have any tips for those?  ^^; (just for clarity it’s normal reimuB).

    I think you can learn faster by watching other’s playing movie.

      no prob ^^

      i’ve found that the key to watching other people’s replays is that you have to find one of the appropriate skill level. i watched the replay for one of the top scores in the world for normal koumakyou… the techniques are sooooo different ^^;;;

      actually made some touhou progress tonite though! 1cc’d normal with reimuA, reimuB and marisaA! still had to resort to 5 lives unfortunately, but at least extra is unlocked with everyone now ^^;

  3. over 80 millions of score, you’ve got it! xD just need a little more pratice!

      had great success (well, but not pretty ^^;) the other nite! i have now 1cc’d eosd with all characters ^^ unfortunately all of them were with 5 lives to start and i only managed to finish reimuA with some lives left ^^;;; so much touhou i’m kinda torn as to whether i should keep plugging away at normal, start hard/extra, or move on to pcb ^^;;
