    Let's Play Sengoku Gensokyo - Day 42

    Medicine and Yuuka had put up a good fight against Reimu's army, but they still continued their steady progress as the fate of the Doll Liberation Front became darker and darker.

    Yuuka: It's good that this isn't a matter of life and death...But they certainly have the clear advantage right now.

    Medicine: I guess I really wasn't cut out for this...

    Now now, don't get disheartened. If you give up just from this, then you won't ever get anything done.

    Y-Yeah...If I don't work hard, no one else is going to liberate the dolls in my place!

    Mm, keep that spirit up.

    While Yuuka had managed to cheer Medicine up, she knew that the next battle would be painful without a plan in mind.

    What can we do, without using the suzuran...This could be wasteful, but we don't have much of a choice left.

    Just as a plan started to form in Yuuka's head, Reimu's army arrived at the scene.

    Reimu: Alright. It's taken a long while, but this will be where it all ends. Prepare yourself!


    You're quite fired up, I see...Perhaps I should cool your head a little...In my personal style!!

    What's going on!?

    Yuuka's eyes twinkled devilishly as vines of ivy sprouted all around Reimu's army and entwiced themselves around their legs.

    Wow! You can do that, Yuuka? Cool!

    Mmhm, I was just using the plant seeds already sowed around here. How do you like it? Having fun trying to move around?

    Hmph, you've certainly gotten desperate to be using such devious tricks.

    Save those words for after the battle is decided...If you can win, that is!

    BGM: Poison Body ~ Forsaken Doll ~ Sengoku Arr. ~

    **********

    With our entire team's speed taking a dire hit, Yuuka ends up even deadlier than before. We spend our early turns moving our ranged attackers out of her Close range, but our lower speed gave Yuuka enough time to Advance All and still go before us to attack again, allowing her to score knock-out blows on our team.


    Even after taking down her compatriots, Yuuka's power was just so great that we only managed to make exactly 50% on the battle guage. Unfortunately, as I just discovered at this very moment, a 50% on the battle guage still translates to a loss.


    Ouch. So close.

    **********

    Reimu: Grr, how vexing...

    Reimu had lost the battle, and immediately began flying backwards to a safe area. She was followed by Marisa, seemingly in a flurry.

    Marisa: Hey Reimu, wait a sec.

    Huh? I'm in a rush, so can you save it for later?

    It seems there's some troops who were a bit slow to retreat. Shouldn't ya go and make sure they're OK?

    Ehh? No thanks, that sounds so troublesome.

    Wha? Hey...You're the leader, ya know.

    They won't get eaten or anything, so I'm sure they'll be fine.

    Sure, but the leader retreatin' before her allies is kinda, ya know...

    Oh shut up already, who cares about that?

    Wha...!!

    Marisa had tried to chide Reimu about her behavior, but ended up getting a harsh rebuke for her efforts. The shock of Reimu's words made her resolve falter.


    Are you trying to lecture me like that Yama? All about allies this, allies that...they're just people who fight with you in battle, and nothing more.

    What the...?

    ...Anyway, I'm going. If you care so much about those lagging behind, then you can go and make sure they're fine.

    ...Bah, fine, whatever! Bye!

    Marisa finally decided that there was no getting through to Reimu, and flew off in another direction. Reimu pondered to herself as she absent-mindedly watched Marisa's figure fade into the distance.

    What was that all about...And what did I get so irritated for? It's all that Yama's fault for saying weird things, geez.

    ...But no matter how hard she tried, she couldn't shake the ideals that Marisa and Eiki were trying to convey to her.

    **********

    As we nursed our wounds from the failed assault, the Doll Liberation Front launches a counterattack on the Nameless Hill. We're not giving up our hold just yet, so we send in our beta team, plus our newest member.


    Alice Doll pulls her weight, healing her allies by a substantial amount as the rest of our party takes down our foes. Thankfully, Yuuka isn't part of the enemy's forces, so we pull out a comfortable win.


    We also capture yet another prisoner: Rosedia, a generic female youkai (our first youkai capture). Here are her stats:
    Level: 10
    HP: 431
    MEL: 2
