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?

 No.26877

I love Marisa. Sadly I'm completely the opposite of her. She is hardworking, she studies magic all day, she's very sociable and talkative. Meanwhile I'm lazy , can't study for shit , and talking to people doesn't interest me.
I still love her though.

I know nothing about touhou but I like the beautiful spooky one and the bookworm in pajamas

 No.26881

I think I've gotten the most enjoyment in total out of the music.
The endless, rich variety of non-vocal remixes have soothed many long afternoons away.
But in terms of highest level of enjoyment, I think the fighting games and the doujinshi have been the best.

"The Immortal Who Saw the Heat Death of the Universe" is a personal favorite:

About to finish up all ten of the memories of phantasm on youtube. I didn't know there were ten until I got into touhou a month ago. Happened to see Shoutoku Legend - True Administrator there and got interested in playing the series because I liked how miko looked even though I've know about Touhou for years.
The Summer Day Dream anime was excellent too, parts 1,2,2.5, and 3 are out and it's professionally voiced too. I didn't know having sawashiro for marisa would be such a great fit, but it really brought the characters to life. I think both of these come out every year or so at comiket, so it'll be interesting to see more come out as the years roll on.

I've been playing Ten Desires for the past few weeks on easy. I'm not very good at these types of games so I only managed to beat Miko for the first time yesterday.
That self-assured way Cirno floats in 12.3 is pretty cute. I can almost hear her saying "I'm the strongest!" just looking at her. She's not that easy to play as though, the timing on her down + charged shot and arc it makes is hard to hit with for a fighting game.

Literally the same. If I could study, I would be a better person, but I don't do much all day. If we could just be hardworking… If I could be hardworking… That would be enough for me.

I hope that if there is a heaven, it is the Gensokyo I want to be in.

I don't even know why I like Remi so much.

 No.27376

>>27178

Because she's a cutie. I personally like her blonde sister more, but in the canon games, Remi is cuter. I don't know why, but they made Flan too chubby, I guess. She has a very round face for some reason. She's still thin, but with a lot of baby fat.

Just came back here to say I live for Touhou. Everything I do has some relation with this series. It inspires me, for some reason. Every day, I will try to get stronger and better my life so that I can, in my fantasies, be "ready" or "worthy" of these characters if I ever die and go to gensokyo.

That's literally canon Reimu. She borderlines hikki sometimes throughout Zun's writing and doesn't bother to even remember most peoples' names. She's merciless in the games because she'd rather be getting drunk and passing out instead of working and just wants to hurry back to bed. Marissa likes these dependent types because they're less likely to call her out on her own flaws, and also because she sometimes goes big sister mode. Most people don't realize this. marisa luvs u for who you are and will hang out with you anytime.

At what level of edginess, if any, does a derivative work feel "off" to you guys?
I've seen people describe the panel in Silent Sinner in Blue where Eirin holds an arrow to Patchouli's back as an example of poor taste, a menacing visual with no meaning or purpose existing purely for its own sake. But this is a canon in which Meiling's greeting to Reimu involved threatening to eat her.
Personally I think Zounose's work is actually pretty good, but The Silence of the Rabbits managed to transgress across the boundary of good taste in a way that even Zounose's most edgy content doesn't.

 No.33164

>>33149

For Touhou, any sort of violence or nastiness of Youkai is distasteful for me. Those two pictures are distasteful to me.

Youkai, or any monster meant to be "feared" must be hunted down and relentlessly killed. I believe Canonically, Remilia tormented humans violently, and thus, must be killed, regardless of her perceived age. There's a reason why in many games vampires are hated and hunted down. Even helping a vampire should be considered a death sentence.

However, to cut some Youkai slack, in the first picture, if those were invaders, then killing them can be seen as moral. Overall though, any kind of human hunting to me breaks the line unless similar force is given towards the Youkai.

I can't stand any kind of movie that's horror. I also can't stand threats like what Eirin did. How distasteful. There's a reason why threats are illegal.

It seems like you have a pretty conflict-averse approach to Gensokyo, if even threats are offputting.

I've not understood where ZUN was going with Touhou's setting and characters. He hints at degenerate and violent behavior but then doesn't actually commit to it and it's unclear if it really is or has ever been there. It's like he first thought of going in that direction but then backed off, or something.

He has followed up on his vague hints, on occasion.
Most of the questionable hints are still a little more explicit than Fujiwara no Mokou having a spellcard named "Honeset Man's Death," which could mean any number of things on its own. The perception of that card's meaning could have just been left as an exercise for the reader, but ZUN made it all quite explicit when Mokou recounted her own past in "Cage in Lunatic Runagate."

Been seeing this in my recommendations and I'm glad to learn that it's actually Japanese run and not effortless Reddit-backed playlist for ad revenue and Discord minions like those Nintendo streams.

Zun's autism to be honest..
Like this is reflected in a lot of Touhou. From the music, which features many key changes, and a lot of speed. The difficulty is pretty autistic requiring many playthroughs to get good at.
The story's autistic as well. Many of the jokes are puns and references to Touhou lore as well as Japanese traditions. Characters are self referencing, and there are many. The characters are also pretty fetishistic, and flat (autistic). Creating, and imaging a story like this requires quite the bit of autism.
This autism is in the great doujin community as well.

Yeah, IN normal is probably the easiest Touhou game I've ever played. I can't manage to beat extra at all, maybe I will try again when I unlock Reimu/Yukari to be played on extra mode.

>Is there a straightforward way to play the English version on Linux?
I'm 99% sure I did play Touhou on Linux at some point in time but I have been using Windows exclusively for the past several years and my memories have rotted. I think I used wine with some minor hiccups like maybe the game was ear-rapingly loud or something to do with the screen resolution. Can't remember.

I like some of these newhus. The ones that aren't palette swaps of previous 2hus especially like the fox succubus with the weird jumpsuit(?) The first link when you google Touhou 18 is a pirated download.
