Talk about Touhou here. I think the OP or something. It's been three months. We've all talked about our favorite characters, so what's your favorite part of the fandom? Do you like the setting the most, the characters the most, the lore the most, the music the most, or, like me, do you just idealize the series like I do?

What are you doing right now to enjoy the series?

I'm going to try Touhou Mother again. It's an RPGmaker fangame in the style of MOTHER 2 & 3. It was broken a few years ago where items wouldn't work in combat so no healing items or special attacks made it impossible to beat.

It's not, unless you are avoiding the places where the discussion has centralized. And if true fans are talking less of it, it's only to lay low as there's been an influx of undesireables taking up interest in Gensokyo. Ironically these types wouldn't even be able to tell you what Gensokyo is if you asked. Hopefully these denigraters will find something else to soil.
Bad opinion and also a gay opinion.


Truly the games aren't that good, even the fighting ones which are a step up. You don't see anyone praising how great they are, be it because of the genre or whatever, since they end up very similar in gameplay at the point where you play one of them and the rest of the next 10 iterations only for the characters,music,etc. since it gets boring quickly.
I've played all of the PC-98 ones partially- hrtp is a different game which is nice, but the other 4 feel like they're one game but with more stages and characters. Scarlet devil? still the same but with better graphics. Even in MoF i still felt the same. Only much later it gets fresh enough, by Double Spoiler you get to do more than just shooting 95% of the time. (again not couting fighting ones). I had a lot of fun with the touhoumon romhacks however, especially puppet play enchanced.


I have been a fan of Touhou since 2008 and I always thought of it in the least serious terms possible. My introduction was Ronald McDonald Insanity and geddan and I have been inclined to think of Touhou in terms of memes ever since. It doesn't bother me in the slightest if the only thing sustaining interest in the west is a Sr Pelo animation. From shitposts the western touhou fandom was born and into shitposts it returns.

finished pofv on normal 3rd try. the music was better than id expect from it


I only even learned about and found out who this character is and their backstory because I like this song.

Though that is kinda my pattern for gaining Touhou knowledge.
>like song
>see imagery related to song
>"I wonder what their story is"
>read a few lore dumps
>then move on to the next song


im sort of glad all the touhou snobs are gone now that the franchise is dead in the water

those "fans" were truly the secondaries all along, as i don't see anyone from before ever talking about touhou now


How is the franchise dead?

I see content come out all the time, especially music and art.


its dead in spirit, the normalswines ruined it


I’ve never cared about 2hu. What makes it different now?


i like seeing old artwork for it even if i don't follow it much anymore. i get a lot of nostalgia for that, chobits and other stuff from around that time period.


I don't actually interact with the fandom so I quite literally have no idea what you are talking about.


then your opinion is worthless

The results are in, and to nobody's surprise, Mononobe No Futo has been voted MORE POPULAR than over 172 other entrants. She is a winner.

Youmu's swords aren't actually that long compared to standard katana. She's a young succubus and has the distinct peadomorphism which characterized feudal Japanese succubi. Small + young + Japanese + tiny + normal sword = huge looking sword. I have swords longer than Rou and Haku and they're perfectly wieldable in all situations.

>she studies magic all day
I thought it was Patchouli that did that? Marisa always seemed like a dumb bimbo to me.


>Marisa always seemed like a dumb bimbo to me
You watch your mouth. Marisa is a talented magician who only offsets her studies to help her friends. Patchy and Alice depend on her to keep them from burning out and she's been invaluable in defending Gensokyo from those who wish to hurt the nice people. She's a young rapscallion and can be a handful sometimes but she's as smart s they come and a very kindred soul so don't go calling her a bimbo.


All I'm saying is that I always see Marisa fooling around with Reimu whereas Patchy always has her nose buried in a book. I know who I'm going to ask if I ever need help in magic class.


Marisa is the one to push Reimu out the door when work needs done. When Marisa does fool around she does so in the company of Reimu because Reimu enjoys fooling around too. What you don't see is Marisa using her flight to help Patchy sort the library, or fly in to town for essentials for Alice. Patchy never leaves the library yet she says no to magic being conducted there, so naturally she must not get a lot of practice in. She's a scholar but has no real experience. Unreliable in a fight, undependable when a life needs saving, unmoving when trouble lurks anywhere besides the mansion. She may be able to tell what she's read of the 2+2s of alchemy, but can she actually make gold? Don't get me wrong, she's a good person and a great friend for an aspiring wizard, but please stop with the myth that Marisa is some aloof kid who can't hold her own. She's beaten centuries old foes at just 17.

You know how in the early 1900s there was this culture of "work really hard so you appear awesome without having to have done any work at all?" E.g., Olympic athlete would claim they had really, really lax training regimes, but in reality they were training all the time. Marisa strikes me as one of those types.

Meanwhile, I always got the impression that Patchy's lifestyle is one of: she mooches off of Remi, and Remi loves it (I've always been a huge RemiPatch fan, and I don't understand why it isn't more popular, given that they've lived with each other for centuries). But at the same time, Patchy never struck me as 'unreliable' or 'uncapable.' I mean, she did construct a magic moonrocket in Silent Sinner in Blue (or one of the official Touhou pieces) iirc, right?


I finally found a way to get around the Youtube algorithm to find strange shit like this again.



I found it in Halmos' autobiography. In general, the method is you take something/one you like, and look at their recommendations, then you look at their recommendations' recommendations, then you look at their recommendations' recommendations' recommendations (typically trying to choose lower and lower sub counts at each level, although often this isn't necessary). Once you get to the third layer, you find all these obscure sources that nobody else knows about, and yet inform almost everything. For example, if you take a really popular Touhou channel, by the third layer you find all these 10-1000 subscriber channels that ALL of the popular Touhou channels have been stealing from, and are untapped diamonds in the rough. However, this method works for books (by going three layers deep in works cited), etc..
It's difficult, though, because a lot of channels have started scrubbing any channels they subscribe to for this very reason.
Another trick is to take a popular Youtuber that you may watch, take the title of one of their videos, put it into search, and then click the filter button to only get videos made in the past week or hour, and then go to the second or third page. You start to actually find the new stuff again, but this approach is much more of a high risk strategy; you have to dig through a lot of trash to find diamonds in the rough.


Fascinating, it works.


That is because Patchouli follows the path of contemplation (or, as the orientals call it, wu wei) whilst Marisa follows the path of action. Patchy knows how to do these things but has transcended any need to do so for she knows that there will always be worker drones like Marisa to do it for her. Aristotle sums up the difference between these two types spledidly in his metaphysics:
>For men of experience know that the thing is so, but do not know why,while the others know the ‘why’ and the cause.
>Hence we think that the master-workers in each craft are more honourable and know in a truer sense and are wiser than the manual workers, because they know the causes of the things that are done
>(we think the manual workers are like certain lifeless things which act indeed, but act without knowing what they do, as fire burns,—but while the lifeless things perform each of their functions by a natural tendency, the labourers perform them through habit)

What's your favorite MMD? I remember watching this for the first time, long ago. It's by far my favorite MMDs with a story. Ever since then, during fall/winter, I would eat a persimmon. I've been doing this for 3-4 years, if not more.

Momiji Mauser :)


the song "no more nuzzles" by luna is better than your haggot ass.


Please don't talk about Yukari's butt like that. She is very pretty from head to toe.


german spam


Tried watching 2hu fandom on youtube a while ago. Yukari always ends up being the big bad villain which is repetitive. Diamond in the rough was also just plain insulting.

"Super-Duper Gensokyo level Dangan Ronpa" is actually better than Danganronpa for writing but unfortunately never got finished

I decided to finally stop being a fucking secondary nigger after a decade or so, and picked up Story of Eastern Wonderland about a week ago. I would've started ages ago but for some reason I thought to learn Japanese and "enjoy it in it's original form". So far the best I've done was get to Mima with 4 lives, then get smacked to shit and die just before the end. I feel like I should be able to finish her either today or within the next 1-2 days, then I'll do the EXTRA and move on to the 3rd game.
The gameplay and music are nice, though I have a hard time paying attention to the latter, my brain starts blocking it out very quickly so I can focus better. Sometimes I feel cheated after dying to stupid shit or missing a 1UP, unfortunately I have anger control problems so it can fuck up the run or the one after it, today I've happened to read the bible after getting really pissy at the game, it actually made me really serene and the next run I did was one of my best, so I might make it a habit to read it whenever I get upset at the games from now on.
