I'd advise to watch replays and see how others beat it despite me never having beaten a Touhou game. Also, just post in the /jp/ thread. It's dead and not like anybody cares if you talk about games in /jp/.
I deeply respect you m80's who can play those games
I tried them and they are simply to fast for my brainlet
Are the games that good to begin with. It always seemed to me that they are popular because anime succubi, and dedicated fanbase. I know nothing about the genre though.
