Let's Play Sengoku Gensokyo - Day 63

BGM: The Flight of the Bamboo Cutter ~ Lunatic Princess ~ Sengoku Arr. ~

The last hurrah of the Eientei brigade.


They all support each other, so the Eientei trio can put up some decent numbers. To take them down, we concentrate on Eirin right off the bat, although we do eliminate the mooks just because we can. Once the threat of Eirin's Medicine is past (redirected once on a mook, just as planned), the remaining members of Eientei have little to defend themselves with against our assault. Unfortunately, our battle guage runs out before we can finish off Reisen, but it's still our victory.



**********

At a long corridor of Eientei, Reimu's Hakurei army and Kaguya's group stood. The battle had already long been decided, and all that remained were the after-battle rites of passage.

Reimu: Whew, that was quite a bit of work. But it's the end for you all.

Kaguya: Boo~, now all those cool things I said to Eirin makes me look like an idiot~.

Eirin: My deepest apologies for not being more helpful, princess...

Hm, are you two the only ones here? I thought there were a lot more around.

Now that you mention it...Eirin, what happened to everyone else?

Most of them have ran away.

Cowardly traitors~!

Reisen: I didn't run away!

Marisa: You're not too popular, are ya? How sad.


How impolite! ...Well, that is what I want to say, but looking at this situation, I can't really deny it...*sigh*

Ooh, this is such a disgrace...

Yes yes, can we stop this princess game now? From now on, you all have to do what I say anyway.

How rude, it's not a game!

Allllright then, if ya would excuse me...

Hey, what do you think you're doing?

We won, so this is our place now. So now, all the important things here also belong to me. Oh yeah, there's so much stuff here!

Stop that right now, you thief~!

Ohh, that's a real ancient-lookin' book! Sure looks like it could be important!

Ahh, that's from so many millenia ago...No, don't wrap it up!

Ahh, a mysterious lump of metal! I've got no idea how to use it though. I'll let Kourin take a look later.

...Alas, all things must come to an end.

...She's the one doing it, not me, geez.

And so, the army of Eientei residents led by Kaguya ended their futile struggle and was defeated by Reimu's army.

"Eientei Forest" has fallen.
Kaguya Houraisan has been taken prisoner.
Eirin Yagokoro has been taken prisoner.
Reisen Udongein Inaba has been taken prisoner.

BGM: Legends

???: Now then, how's Gensokyo been looking?

???: The Hakurei army has strengthened considerably, and is expanding at a fearsome rate.

Hmm...Looking at their numbers, they shouldn't have any problems from here on. How are things looking on our end?


Despite the unforeseen circumstances, the principle people in charge have begun preparations as ordered. We should be able to act shortly.

I see. You get the job done even faster than I expected, li'l ???.

I am not worthy of such praise.

At that moment, two figures appeared and approached the first two figures. the two new entrants seemed to be respectful servants.

???: We have returned as requested, Lady ???.

???: The preparations you have ordered have been completed. We are ready to fulfill your command.

My my, everyone's been working very hard. You're all such good children.

I have not detected any particularly abnormal behavior from within Gensokyo.

Then there's no need for us to rush. You two, please stay on standby for now, but be prepared for anything.

Understood.

In the case of an emergency, I'll protect us with my life.

Heh heh, it is nice to have people you can rely on.

......

Oh? Is something the matter?

...Can I ask something?

Please do.


Why are we all shadowy and black?

...Well, that is...

And our names being ??? and ??? and so on makes it really hard to figure out who's who.

Er, um...W-We're still suppose to be acting in secret, that's why.

Y-Yes, we must keep our identities and appearance hidden as much as possible.

...There you go.

Hmm, I don't remember agreeing to this...but let's go with it. ???, you're the closest to the outside, how has the situation been?

We have not received any human or human-like visitors. Ghosts and fairies occasionally come floating by, but it has been peaceful otherwise.

I surveyed the area as well to be safe, and I found nothing abnormal either.

That sounds strange. I thought they should have approached us by now.


They must be trying to make us relax so they can catch us unaware. We mustn't let them succeed.

...I...oh, never mind. You may return to your posts, you two.

??? and ??? stood up and bowed before returning whence they came. Silence returned to the area.

......Hey, li'l ???...

Yes?

What did you want to say earlier?

...A thought occurred to me. It has been a very long time since our world separated from Gensokyo.

Yes, it has.

Then, would it not be likely that they have totally, absolutely and completely forgotten all about us?

S-Surely not.

But not a single one of them has approached here.

.........

.........

...P-Please remain on standby.

...Very well.

Ugh...If what li'l ??? said turns out to be true, then I'll have to take matters into my own hands!

We actually picked up several generics from Eientei (thanks, Remilia!), but I didn't think they were noteworthy enough to mention. At this point in the game, unique units are just so much better (unless said generic knows Pressure or Rally, which none of ours do).

We've also built up quite a backlog of items for sale at Marisa's shop. Maybe we ought to take a break from pursuing Hakugyokurou and just develop/recruit/purchase items? Or are we in a strong enough position to just plow through them right now?


Hmm...most blatant example of breaking the fourth wall in this game?
