For me personally, there were a lot of pieces that drew me to this series. It really started when I listened a re-remix of Night Of Nights, played by the Epic Sax Guy. Then I watched a One Minute Melee vídeo of DIO vs Sakuya.(I had no idea who this Maid was initially, and had hoped that DIO would win... I was pleasantly mistaken.)
Then came Scarlet Curiosity, which I bought on PSN. Obviously, I only knew of Sakuya so I was totally confused by what I was playing lore-wise. But it kept me interested enough to look for more, so I came across The Disappearing Of Gensokyo on Steam, and bought it along with all the DLC.(When in Rome, no?) At first, I wasn’t too convinced by this blue-haired girl holding a lightsaber.(Tenshi. Sorry for my ignorance back then.) But then as I kept playing and picked up Mystia, I picked up another tiny head for a white-haired girl, noticed she carried a katana so I was immediately interested in this girl. Youmu instantly became a favorite of mine when I actually started doing research on Touhou characters & lore.
Finally, I ended up picking up yet another game from Steam. Though, I wasn’t aware this was an official work. I thought the drawing was kinda cute. So I ended up enjoying Hidden Star in Four Seasons, despite the Japanese dialogue, but I got the gist of it thanks to Wikia pages. Eventually I nabbed Imperishable Night. (From this website, no less.) beating it a few times on Normal. Though, I got destroyed several times before winning without Continues. Next came Subterranean Animism, which I really fell in love with. No matter how much it hates me, ahaha...
Now I’m here, scooping up every available Touhou game, fan-game, Manga and merchandise I can find... And that my wallet permits.
I remember the Dio vs Sakuya video. That was shortly after I started myself. I liked both characters a lot but I admit I was rooting for Sakuya so I was pleasantly surprised at the end loI. haven't played many of the fan games but I did recently complete Luna Nights which just got its full release on steam recently. Very solid metroidvania if you're interested. I'd definitely recommend it.
It's funny coming into this series as a newcomer. It's like jumping into this massive ocean. I've been obsessed with this series for the last 8ish months or so now and I still have tons and tons left to experience. Despite having gotten all the games from this site I ended up picking up an entire physical collection of the games, that's just how much I love this series. I still need to buy the music collection and printed works though.
Btw have you played 15 yet? That game in normal point device mode for the first time is an experience hahaha. I think 11 and 15 are my favorites so you might also like it as well if you haven't tried it yet.
You all remember Osana Reimu? if not, you probably haven't watched it yet, i recommend watching Osana Reimu first before continuing in this topic.Spoiler
The Osana Reimu author, named ジョイフル made another videos. so prepare your feelings.
it consist 4 episodes, you can watch them in their youtube channel which i will link it below.
Now, instead of telling another story about Reimu, this time it's a story about Ibaraki Kasen.
for now the 4th episode haven't translated yet since it literally uploaded a few hours ago. edit: i looked down on the Touhou fans, it's translated already... wew.
Here's the link for their account
and here's the first episode
I would say Seija could be scary. According to the lore for Amanojaku; they wear the skin of their victims and pose as said victim.
good thing the worst she can do is flip things out of order, no?
My small (tiny) collection
