When it happened, it was just the same old, same old.
I remember Marisa looking proud of herself as she held it, hot off the presses.
She was like, "It's a new invention created by the magician trio representing Gensokyo! It's for a portable game console that you operate using Spirit Power!
At the time I thought, wow, she must be really bored...and maybe she was.
But when I turned it on, a wondrous scene unfolded before my eyes.
I remember thinking, wow, that's a lot of bubbles popping around.
And then she was like, "Ah-hah! Bubbles!" She seemed to understand what was going on.
At the time, I went through the motions, or just watched Marisa play.
But I didn't really think much of it other than, "Well, this is weird."
However, in time, once this game really took off in Gensokyo, I came to realiaze it's a major breakthrough in gameplay.
Even in a peaceful place like this. I sometimes feel like I'm in a feverish delirium, seeing things like storms that aren't really there.
Even with a particular omen, you have to strain your eyes hard to see it. Sometimes it's nothing more than a little ripple in the air.
Looking back now, it wasn't really signs of a major upheaval...
In a way, it might have just been a little calm before the "storm" that Gensokyo hasn't seen before... Or something like that.
