It's late in the summer, the time when autumn harvest has started to show itself. Rays of sunset made the river glitters with golden sparkles.
A group of Marisa is coming back from their hunting trip. Today's hunt is well and their hat is filled with the result of their work.
All of them went in hurry to the river where another group of Marisa has been waiting to help them carry the food. Those food are splitted so each Marisa is light enough to cross over the river.
They have to be hurry to not getting captured. Just as they departed, behind them, Reimu, Alice, Patchouli, appeared and yelled something at them.
Their destination is not the other side of the river, but a small island in the middle. Here is a Marisa only clan.
A single type clan would not form naturally because yukkuri doesn't marry and reproduce with their own kind, but this clan has only Marisa. They only accept Marisa and it's not like the other types can cross the river to reach them.
Suspecting that Reimu will wait to ambush them, the Marisa planned to go hunting from the other side of the river tomorrow.
Originally, these Marisa are member of normal clan, husband of Reimu types. But by using "little ones are very easy", Reimu types used child raising as excuse to just hide in their house. The children grow closer to their mother and become just as bad, treating the Marisa like slave. Moreover, those Deibu prefer the children that looks like them so Marisa type children often got neglected.
One day, a Marisa called to her kind to escape.
Marisa is the largest workforce in the clan, so quickly hunters are dispatched to take them back. Patchouli ordered Marisa to return to the clan.
Of course, Marisa refused.
As the main work force, they're also the strongest fighting force in the clan, so dragging them back will come at big cost.
Marisa doesn't want to use violence. They believed they can win against the clan, but that will not solve the problem anyway. So, to stop the chase, one by one they jumped to the river on their hat.
Other than aquatic breeds, only Marisa can cross water, so the other yukkuri can only see.
"Actually, Marisa want to take it easy with everyone..."
This Marisa is born in a normal clan from a pair of intimate parents. She grow normally and married a Reimu she's been growing up together with. Life is good until they have a child.
That time, Reimu suggested that she focused in child raising while Marisa go hunting. Even now, Marisa agrees that is the best way, judging from their ability. At first, the children grew quickly into koyukkuri who respect their parents and enjoy playing with their sisters.
Problem starts when KoReimu is sick. It's just a light sickness, but Reimu starts discriminating, saying that Reimu is weaker and thus deserved more care.
Reimu starts to feed KoReimu more. Marisa realized the problem when KoReimu already grow into eggplant shape, many times bigger than KoMarisa. KoMarisa is also forced to clean poo poo under the pretense of "duty".
Because there's no more food, KoMarisa is forced to hunt for her own, and even then, the food she hunted is forcefully robbed by her sister and mother. In the end, KoMarisa is killed by her sister, but Reimu only praised KoReimu and never question anything about it.
Even paste-brained Marisa would realize something is not right. Sooner or later, she would take it easy forever in Reimu's hand.
That's when she made a decision. Gathering the other Marisa with same problem, they all escaped from the clan.
Losing their work force, the clan started to decline. Actually, there's still Chen and Myon types in the clan who have strong physical ability. The problem is that their personality won't be easy to subjugate and they're not interested in Reimu types.
For Reimu types to live a happy Deibu life, it has to be Marisa type.
Because of this, Reimu instigate Alice and Patchouli types to join and chase after Marisa. But all three has weak physical ability so they can't search far from the clan.
Of course, this is a clan that will end in a generation. Everyday there will be Marisa who escaped the island clan to join back the forest clan, and their leader Marisa wont object against it. She know, even though they escaped their tyrants, there's no happyness here, there's no family. The food they have is only healing their wound, not giving them any happyness.
But everyday, there's also Marisa from the clan who escaped here. This is like a temple where they can seek for refugee.
