Back in ~2008, so when I was about 12 years old, I was looking for an Ever17 CG and stumbled across this edit:

I thought the game (PCB) looked cool, and decided to try it out. The rest is history!!!

How did we all first find Touhou, and get involved with this fanbase?  It seems to me that there's isn't quite a normal path that people take in this regard.

Im fairly a new touhou fan but a few months back, a video released of sr pelo and his animation of eosd. I watched and loved it, I decided to watch more touhou just and gotten into it. Im glad i got into touhou because i gotten back into game development and learning a programming language seriously now.

This may be a bet lengthy so bare with me here, throughout the years that I've been on the internet Touhou was one of those series that I've heard legendary things about it but knew very little about, my first exposure to Touhou was Ronald McDonald Insanity (Pretty old I know) and various memes, YTP's and YTPMV's though I only knew the popular songs I.E. U.N. Owen was her? and Nights of Nights, needless to say I wasn't familiar with the series at that time, though I used to know a couple of people who were FE and RPG fans who also liked Touhou too and that's how I got to know a few characters like Yuuka, Ringo, Reisen ETC.

And the thing is that I started going down this rabbit-hole since late 2021 so despite being on the internet for a long time I've only gotten into Touhou since 3 months ago.

Oh boi...

Long story short (full story in another thread) is that I found Touhou through rather unrelated means, those being Warhammer 40K memes, Kaliningrad General countryball videos, and Rhythm Heaven custom remixes. But the thing that actually directed me towards Touhou actually was totally by chance, an image and short discussion seen on Discord that had I missed it, I would have probably never ever found this series (and fall in love with it)

how i got into it is through yugituber named rata when in the video i linked he shows a picture of EOSD patchouli (around 28:08 in the video) i was thrown off a loop on who that was so i looked through the comments section until i got her name and went from there

I played and still play a lot of rhythm games and out of curiosity looked up the name one day and fell in love with the characters the game and the community and rest is history I suppose.

Think the first I ever heard of Touhou was "Drunk as I Like" in some tf2 gmod vid. After that I'd start watching YTPMVs, MADs and other such videos (Prismriver Sisters on Drugs lives rent free in my head to this day), until the day I caved in and decided to play the first two pc98 games. A bad idea that delayed my entry for about a year until I tried again with EoSD and went from there. And now we're here.

(love pc98 now but it's definitely not a good starting point)

everything is just peachy tonsh.gif.0b4075faabf61d7265e5c3fea342964f.gif

Some years ago I was in a discord server for an undertale fangame, one of the moderators there is a touhou fan and he always kept saying "play touhou", so one day I decided to try out EoSD. I found it too hard, and forgot about touhou for a couple of years, but I picked it up again recently thanks to wanting to play a bullet hell game.

I think these two videos were part of my first contact with Touhou, even if at the time I did not know what Touhou is 
 

Surprise, surprise, Kaliningrad actually is a Touhou fan, with him having a secondary channel dedicated to Touhou animations, as well as a Twitter and Pixiv pages where he posts 2hus

i saw the bad apple!! video, and how it took over the internet back in the good, old days of 2008... 

and it took many years, but i slowly started listening to more of the music, and started arranging it for piano

and here i am now lol

I found it creeping into my life in a number of ways:

1. Geometry Dash had a level with a song titled "The Flawless Wings of Yatagarasu", which was a remix of "Nuclear Fusion" from Subterranean Animism.

 

2. I played osu! and this singular batmap turns out to be "The Dark Blowhole" (Stage 1 Theme) from Subterranean Animism

 

3. Bad Apple, of course.

It's one of those things where you don't realise you've gotten into it before you do, but if you like it, you get into it really easily. But i suppose it kinda depends on the perso

The IOSYS classics like Cirno's Perfect Math Class and Marisa Stole the Precious Thing mesmerized me as a kid for some reason. Then, one day I found out that these IOSYS vids are actually based off a Japanese indie game and it all spiraled from there
