-->--Description of ''Mini Mari!'' image pool on Danbooru

'''Mini Mari!''' (ミニまりっ!) is a ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fan {{Yonkoma}} by [[http://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=552160 Beni Shake]] (紅シャケ), a member of the doujin circle Honey Toast.

The comic follows the adventures of ''Touhou''[='=]s token CuteWitch, Marisa Kirisame, after she eats a strange mushroom and reduced to a childish, SuperDeformed form. Reimu Hakurei at first objects to this sudden transformation, but soon grows to adore the newly-minature Marisa's sheer cuteness.

Koishi Komeiji joins the two as another main character, after she tried to [[ImTakingHerHomeWithMe catch]] Marisa with a [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Master Ball]], only for the ball to bounce back and capture her, making her Marisa's and Reimu's pet instead of the other way around.

''Mini Mari!'' can be read in its original Japanese on Pixiv [[http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?id=552160&tag=%E3%83%9F%E3%83%8B%E3%81%BE%E3%82%8A%E3%81%A3! here]], and is translated into English on [[ImageBooru Danbooru]] (no link provided due to NSFW ads, so please look it up yourself).

The comic started in 2010 and is still going strong. Beni Shake has released a few compilation books, primarily at events like the bi-annual Comiket and the annual Reitaisai festival. [[http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=37548449 The latest compilation]], released at Comiket 84 in summer 2013, covers the comic from 2010 to 2012.

!!''Mini Mari!'' provides examples of:
* ArtEvolution: Like other years-long comics, Beni Shake's art style has changed dramatically; in early comics, long-distance shots of characters just had them as heads sitting on top of what looked like thin poles, while later years are much more detailed overall.
* BerserkButton: Poor Yukari is repeatedly called "Grandma" by Marisa, though her reaction is usually a sort of breakdown than an angry reaction.
* CatGirl: Marisa has a phase as one when she eats a striped mushroom. It ends right as Reimu is having a {{Tsundere}} moment about her.
* CatchPhrase: In earlier strips, Marisa has a tendency to blurt out "Eu?", which is similar in meaning to "Huh?" and "Eh?"
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Marisa has gone from being LittleMissSnarker (especially with Yukari) to a CheerfulChild.
%%* ChasingAButterfly: Marisa doing this in an early comic inflicts CutenessProximity on Reimu.
* {{Crossover}}: With ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' in one arc, where Reimu and Marisa go on a bunch of quests.
* CutenessProximity:
** [[DeadpanSnarker Reimu]] manages to avert this for a few chapters, but [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/927807 starts to lose it five chapters in]] and a few years later, [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1285051?pool_id=3587 she's all but given up on trying to revert Marisa]].
---> '''Koishi:''' "I'd like to be wrong, but aren't we forgetting about turning Marisa back to normal?" \\
''([[VisibleSilence ...]])'' \\
'''Koishi:''' "Why are you averting your eyes?"
** During the Scarlet arc, Flandre meets Marisa and proceeds to squeeze her with glee. Remilia sees this and wants in on the cuddling and playing too.
* ExcitedShowTitle: The official katakana reading of the title actually reads "Mini-Mari!"
* FanService: In [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1202179?pool_id=3587 Persuasiveness]], Marisa complains about a heat wave. Reimu's solution to her problem? [[spoiler:Strip down to her sarashi and panties.]]
* FunSize:
** Marisa, as implied by the title.
** Lampshaded in the spinoff series ''[[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/972764 Mini Mini]]'', in which Reimu seems to be a bit annoyed at being reduced to the same mini size Marisa is:
---> '''Marisa:''' "What's wrong with bein' little? It's cute!"
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Koishi tried to capture Marisa as a CatGirl using a Master Ball. Reimu knocks it away (which is what happens in the actual games) and ''back at Koishi'', causing Koishi to be captured by her own Master Ball.
* HonestAxe: Spoofed in one strip. When Koishi's Master Ball gets damaged, the girls ask Nitori to fix it. She offers three replacements: a mini-Koishi, a mini-catgirl Koishi, and a [[BuxomIsBetter charismatic]] Koishi. Marisa says she wants all three, and Nitori says that since she was honest, she'll throw in a gold and a silver Koishi as well. Marisa is delighted, Reimu much less so.
* ImTakingHerHomeWithMe: Flandre Scarlet's [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/894991 initial reaction]] to meeting Marisa. Unlike darker, more common depictions of Flandre, this is less out of a desparate need for a companion and more simply because she finds the chibified Marisa to be absolutely adorable.
* KidHasAPoint: Marisa says she doesn't like the idea of Valentines Day (at least the part about giving chocoloate as a roundabout way of [[LoveConfession confessing]]) and that if you like someone, you should just go ahead and say it; she then proceeds to tell Reimu and Koishi that she loves them both.
** Amusingly, the Danbooru comments for this comic are in total agreement with Marisa, saying that a lot of RomCom anime would be '''much''' shorter if the protagonists took her advice instead of futzing about for hundreds of chapters.
* OnlySaneWoman: Amidst Marisa's and Koishi's hijinks, poor Reimu often ends up in this role.
* RecoilBoost: Marisa tries to use her signature [[WaveMotionGun Master Spark]] and [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/928043?pool_id=3587 gets blasted into the air]].
--> '''Marisa:''' "Euuuuuuuuuu~"
* ScheduleSlip: There was a period of about four months without updates because Beni Shake was working on another series, the [[Manga/TouhouIbarakasenWildAndHornedHermit Kasen]]-centric ''You Desire a Hermit?''. Acknowledged InUniverse with a comic where Marisa is upset with Reimu for not paying attention to her for a while.
* ShipTease: As demonstrated [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/986597?pool_id=3587 here]]:
--> '''Reimu:''' "Since she became small, [Marisa] won't go to sleep unless we're in the same bed, and somehow she tries to flirt with me."
** Later, Reimu and Marisa complain of the heat, and [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1466059?pool_id=3587 Reimu tells Marisa to get off of her]], presumably because of the body heat. Marisa refuses.
* ShoutOut: There are a few references to other games, particularly ''[[VideoGame/TouhouNingyougeki Touhoumon]]'' (and by extension, ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'') and ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter''. In fact, Koishi came to live with Reimu and Marisa because a Master Ball she threw at Marisa bounced back ("Reimu blocked the ball! [[WhatTheHellPlayer Don't be a thief!]]") and captured her.
* SleepCute: Demonstrated [[http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=39466414 here]] by Reimu and Marisa.
* SuperDeformed: Aside from Marisa, the art style itself borders on this.
* TheTalk: In one brief series, Marisa asks where babies come from; Koishi makes the mistake of saying "p*n*s", which [[FromTheMouthsOfBabes little Marisa decides is a funny word and starts saying repeatedly.]]
