Fantasy Kaleidoscope ~The Spring Snow Incident~[]

The opening for this episode shows brief scenes from EosD.

The episode truthfully follows the events from Perfect Cherry Blossom. Spring has come to Gensokyo, but the Hakurei Shrine is still covered in snow. Reimu has become too lazy to solve the incident for some reason, so Marisa decides to solve the incident herself, thus becoming the main character. However, the episode skips most of the battle scenes.

Marisa first faces Letty Whiterock, easily defeating her. Later on, all the characters who originally serve as bosses, such as Chen, Alice Margatroid and Lily White are shown in short cameos. Marisa then finds the black hole entrance to Hakugyokurou, surrounded by the Prismriver Sisters, just passing by them.

Marisa goes up in what it seems an infinite staircase, only to encounter Youmu Konpaku at the end. When Youmu is defeated, Yuyuko Saigyouji shows up, and the final battle begins.

Fantasy Kaleidoscope 「The Scarlet Mist Incident (Part One)」[]

Just right after the events of SA, the Moriya Shrine holds a party where almost all characters are included.

The main characters read an article on Aya's Newspaper about the Scarlest Mist Incident, which happened during Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. Remilia feels nostalgic and Sanae wants to know how Reimu solved this incident. Marisa and Sakuya then decide to tell the story.

The rest of the episode is focused on the events of EoSD. However, the plot is different in several things, such as Aya telling Marisa to gather information from Scarlet Devil Mansion in the first place, or Marisa directly battling against Flandre, and Patchouli afterwards.

According to one of Patchouli's dialogues, Reimu is inside SDM at the same time she's battling against Marisa. After the credits, Manpuku Jinja announces Reimu will battle Sakuya and Meiling in the third episode.

This episode marks the very last appearances of the Komeiji sisters throughout the whole anime.

Fantasy Kaleidoscope「The Scarlet Mist Incident (Part Two)」[]


【東方】幻想万華鏡 第3話・紅霧異変の章(中編)【二次創作アニメ】-1

As the party continues at the Moriya Shrine, Reimu is convinced to tell her part of the story of the Scarlet Mist Incident.

When she found out about the scarlet mist, she quickly arrived to the Scarlet Devil Mansion, easily defeating Rumia and Meiling in the way. When she enters the Mansion, she encounters Sakuya, who demonstrates to be a strong enemy using her abilities of time control, but Reimu still found the way to defeat her.

As Marisa keeps battling Patchouli; Flandre, who is still caged in a water prison, remembers all the times she has been left aside by her older sister. When Patchouli is defeated, Marisa convinces Flandre to confront Remilia along with her.

Flandre gathers enough courage to talk back to her sister, and summons a fire sword (possibly Laevateinn). Remilia turns to her little sister and accepts her challenge.

Fantasy Kaleidoscope「The Scarlet Mist Incident (Final Part)」[]


【東方】幻想万華鏡 第4話・紅霧異変の章(後編)【二次創作アニメ】

Reimu and Marisa observe as Remilia and Flandre fight each other. However, they are surprised when the two sisters reconciliate and decide to fight together in a two-on-two battle against them.

Back at Moriya Shrine, when Marisa concludes the story of the Scarlet Mist Incident, the party goes out of control when Flandre shows up. Annoyed by the fact Remilia ate her pudding before leaving the SDM, Flandre starts fighting her older sister on the spot, wreaking a havoc in the shrine.

An ordinary ending for an ordinary night in Gensokyo...

After the credits, we see Nitori Kawashiro (who was (literaly) kicked out of the Moriya Shrine by Kanako) observing Nazrin and Shou Tomarou who found and are about to free Byakuren Hijiri.

Memories of phantasm cirno

Cirno's eyes

  • In the first episode, when Marisa flies on her broom directly at Cirno, Cirno's pupils become a pair of ⑨.
  • Even though she had appeared in the first episode and one of the PV's, Hina's face wasn't visible even in the second episode, since it was covered by an origami model of what it seems to be a space battleship made by Nitori. Manpuku Jinja then post a blog entry finally showing Hina's face.
  • Star-0

    Star Sapphire inspired doll

    The music used at the beginning of the second and third episodes of 「The Scarlet Mist Incident, as a recap of the previous episode, is a remix of "Last Remote" and the Prologue theme from Dragon Ball Z.
    • Likewise, the second episode of The Flower Incident fuses the same theme from Dragon Ball Z and "Judgement in the Sixtieth Year ~ Fate of Sixty Years".
  • During the last scenes of the party Moriya Shrine at the end of Episode 4, you can see Yuyuko with an enlarged belly and her tongue out. This is actually Manpuku Jinja's logo, despite the fact that she might have eaten Mystia.
  • In Episode 4: The Scarlet Mist Incident, when Flandre is telling how lonely she was because of Remilia, you can see her playing with a Teddy Bear and a Star Sapphire doll.
