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 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


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:

Cirno is so majestically cute and a convenient guest to have around when the summer heat is unbearable


Can you imagine eating with cirno on the grass while she refresh the air around you on a hot summer day ?

Yes that will be wonderful


Really like this song:
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.



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.


I just found out that the shiritori mmd got a sub. Nice.

>be "ready" or "worthy" of these characters if I ever die and go to gensokyo.
What characters specifically?
I can somewhat relate to that.
I like Suika, but she'd probably consider me to be a wimp.


>Just came back here to say I live for Touhou
You and me both, brother. Looking forward to Touhou 17.

There is to be a new game coming out. Willy beast and weakest creature it is called.

You dpn't get to Gensokyo though death.


>Meanwhile I'm lazy , can't study for shit , and talking to people doesn't interest me

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.

I wonder where all the 8chan /2hu/ fags went. Did they all go back to 4/jp/?


alot of them probably did, but i came here instead since 4gag is an unbearable cycle of low effort shitposting and i prefer actual discussion


I'm going through the series in normal, getting all the bad endings first before I come back to actually complete them(good endings and extra stages).
I was having no issue but 10 is kicking my ass and I have no idea how I'll manage to beat it without continuing.

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.



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.
What drives your interest in Touhou, if you don't mind me asking? Is it the music?

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.


touhou characters are flat as a pancake their personalities come from doujins


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."

24/7 2hu radio


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. Naturally being on Youtube it's quite heavy on bandwidth though so Gensokyo radio is still a groovy option. https://gensokyoradio.net/GensokyoRadio.pls

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.


well well, finished IN on normal, with continues of course
i can see why people think its the easier/st 2hu, marisa's stage was the big difficulty spike as stage 4s generally are as i was told
oh well, onto 2hu 9


Every time I want this thread to die it keeps on coming to life lol.

t. op


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.
I've been playing MoF, SA, and UFO trying to beat them all in normal recently, but I keep dying.


There’s a bunch of these songs compiled of smooth-jazz-esque touhou music. I found it quite comfy so I wanted to share it here. It’s called ‘Cafe de Touhou.’


Kinda feel like a poser since the only thing I have ever really gotten into when it comes to Touhou is the music.
Both directly from the games and the wider music community that takes inspiration from Touhou.


You'll fit right in. I'd say more than 90% of the community never 1cc any game. Not that I have. Bullet hell is extremely niche compared to the size of the 2hu fandom.

This thread makes me feel old


I've played all the games at least once and usually get as far as the 5th or 6th boss but I can seemingly never 1cc. One day…

happy valentines day boys


I kind of feel like Touhou has lost some of it's magic, especially in the music department. There just aren't many tunes that stick in your brain in recent games. I don't think it's just nostalgia goggles either.


I think its more like 90% of the community don't even play the games and just simp for 2d waifus.

There used to be a dedicated touhou music thread but since this thread is dead might as well share it here.

I only played up to TD and I'd like to replay and continue the main games starting from EoSD. Is there a straightforward way to play the English version on Linux?


>I only played up to TD
>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.


sux that touhou discussion is completely dead


Makes sense though, since the franchise itself is dead. Or at the least it's been on the decline for a decade now.


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
