    I usually don't interact with any fandom, but this place seems peaceful enough to do so. So here goes my attempt to say "hi". And find some people to talk, I guess. I heard the name "touhou" first in 2015 I think. Not sure. I didn't play the game at that time, simply because I thought it wasn't interesting. Anyways, 6 months ago, while I'm listening to something on SoundCloud, I see something called "Native Faith" recommended to me. Usually those recommendations are bad but I don't have anything better to do so I click. I like it immediately, since it's fast paced and piano. Then I search about the song on the web, find about Touhou again. This time I decide to give it a shot since that music was pretty good. And it was a good choice. My first game is Touhou 10 (cause of "Native Faith"). Absolutely loved it, Touhou(s) are the only game(s) that feels fluid to me, after Dead Cells (which is an epic game). I also loved the art of the game, it feels like fresh air after all those "normal" games (xD). It looks weird, childish and cute at the same time, which i like. And the music is just plain awesomeness. When I first heard Sakuya's theme (Luna Dial) in game, it made me thought "Oh sh*t, she is going to kick my ass". As of now i have played 6, 7 and 10, but never finished any. Got to the last stage in all of them in normal difficulty, never managed to beat those damned last bosses. My only goal is to finish every game in Normal difficulty, other difficulties are near impossible for me (expect Easy, lol). My fav character would be Marisa, because I always wanted to be a (ordinary) magician as a child. She is the funniest too (and most energetic?) I think. Which fits me irl. So, that's it. BTW, I use Linux (Void Linux) only. Any fellow Linux users here? EDIT: Forgot to say, this website is really well made. Good job.

    note: tUMG isn't a game hi, currently working on an art piece with the (majority) of the touhou cast in a hopefully unique style. not sure what to do with it once it's done but progress is fine as of right now total characters: 75 (roughly) let me know which design is your favorite!

    Hello everyone! I haven't been into Touhou for very long, but I enjoy playing the games, listening to the music (both original and arranges), and seeing content people make of it. I discovered it through listening to arranges such as Bad Apple and Tear Rain on Osu!, but I didn't try playing any of the games until a few months ago. Some of my favorite characters are Sakuya, Mokou, Marisa, Keine, and Yuuka. A few of my other favorite games are Danganronpa, Pokémon, and Celeste. I'm actually kind of nervous since I usually lurk in communities, but I'm looking forward to the rest of my time on here?

    I would rather play PCB without focusing, because it would be easier than lunatic SA with no power, even on the earlier stages for me. It would also remind me of playing SoEW. _(:3 」∠)_ Would you rather: Marry Kaguya, become immortal, and move in, but you two will always hate each other. You can't get a divorce or move out, but everyone will treat you the same way as Kaguya and do almost whatever you want (You are friends with the rest of Eientei) or Teach idi⑨t fairies to read and write everyday in Gensokyo 300 yen per hour, for several hours. (≖ ͜ʖ≖) You will do it now, until the moment you die Edit: I didn't expect the person replying to choose the second option for some reason. Maybe I should have made it teaching math instead of reading and writing but oh well. ╰(▔∀▔)╯ Thanks for replying

    I got introduced to Touhou like a month or two ago; on a game convention for board/rpg/figure - games mainly. There was a Touhou room though and I had never heard of it. I never explored Japanese pop-culture that much before, because I didn't use to think that it was my cup of tea — except for like... Nintendo and Pokémon. But I recently started to get into some animes and I guess that's why this Touhou game room appealed to me at this point. At first I didn't understand that all the games were with the same characters. My first impression was that this was some society of weebs playing asian arcade games. I tried one of the bullet-hell games, but what really got me was the fighting games. I played Immaterial and Missing Power and immediately the lovely music caught my attention along with the intro. Also the characters intrigued me. All characters were unlocked and Remilia was the girl of choice, the one that I first took liking to. Also the gameplay was very fun for a fighting game with all the projectiles and the spell cards. So when I left — I thought that this was something I had to check out at home! So that was my introduction to Touhou and I'm quite amazed by the amount of fan-content and spin-off stuff and the fact that there is such a following. So yeah, I'm quite a newbie around here. I currently play the classic era games. Excited to explore more games and other things related! Other than that; I'm a guy from Sweden, I turn 27 this year and I work as a software developer. On my spare time I usually do stuff like coding on my game-project, play music, drink beer, go to gigs, grow chili, go fishing. See you around!

    Hi! I'm dnf. Figured I should make my own intro post, so here goes: I've been into Touhou for years, gosh. I think my very first encounter with it was when I was in high school; I saw a couple classmates bent over a laptop playing Scarlet Weather Rhapsody and got curious about it so they told me about the series. I discovered the rest of the games from there. I like the fighting games, but I'm utter garbage at them, so I still prefer the danmakus. The first one from Touhou that I played was Perfect Cherry Blossom, and it's still one of my favorites today! I've never really interacted with the Touhou fandom until now that I recently got back into playing it because of the newer games, so this is the first time I'm in a forum. Though, I do lurk on /r/Touhou, Touhou Overdose (Discord server), and the Moriya Shrine Discord and ping my friends occasionally for 2hu memes. My favorite danmakus are Perfect Cherry Blossom (bias since it's the first one I played + that damn music), Imperishable Night (first game I 1cc'd!), and Double Dealing Character (OST is one of my favorites + those weird spells from the stage 5 & 6 bosses). My favorite characters are Marisa, Seija, and Junko. As for other interests, I play a lot of rhythm games! (Mostly on mobile though because my laptop is super lowspec.) I also read/watch a lot of shonen and seinen animanga. Aaand I'm the type of person who keeps up with the latest tech news, too (especially Android and Linux stuff). It's nice to be here with y'all!

    More drawings have appeared from the outside world near the Great Hakurei Border! As usual, I've upped the contrast on the photos to make my faint lines appear. Maybe I should just go over those lines pushing harder. Sanae is a bit out of proportion, and she's wearing a bit of a Reimu face, but I think the picture looks good. And as for Sakuya… ?️?. Actually, I've noticed a line on her apron that I forgot to erase just as I'm writing this. That's annoying. So far, I've drawn many significant Touhou protagonists/playable characters. Reimu, Sakuya, Sanae… and yet, I can't help but feel as if I'm missing a certain, sticky fingered someone from this gallery...

    Ahoy! And firstly, thanks for sitting in. It was around late 2017 when I got into arranging some Touhou remixes after listening to a remix for “Septette For The Dead Princess.” To sum it up, I mostly turn some of my favorites into Rock/Metal remixes. I know this has been done to death, and several of these tend to be overplayed on YouTube, but I wanted to give it a shot, anyway. Now, I’ll just post all my current slew of 2hu tracks thus far. I obviously plan to make more, as I’m jamming to several tracks almost everyday. P.S: The sound quality isn’t the best since I have to resort to recording everything on my phone, so I apologize in advance for your ears’ well being. Anyway, up first is my recent post on SoundCloud. Alice In Wonderland from Mystic Square.https://m.soundcloud.com/yoshie-shinozaki-1/alice-in-wonderland-touhou Next is a Black Metal styled re-remix of U.N Owen Was Her? In the style of Final Savage.https://m.soundcloud.com/yoshie-shinozaki-1/final-savage-u-n-owen-was-her This set belongs to Legacy Of Lunatic Kingdom. An Alternative Metal styler for both Pure Furies~ Whereabouts Of The Heart & Pandemonic Planet.https://m.soundcloud.com/yoshie-shinozaki-1/pure-furies-whereabouts-of-the https://m.soundcloud.com/yoshie-shinozaki-1/pandemonic-planet-touhou-metal https://m.soundcloud.com/yoshie-shinozaki-1/gensokyo-millennium-touhou And that’s all for now. If you have any criticisms or suggestions, please feel free to speak your mind, and I will try my best to do much better next. P.S.S: I’ll be posting both my latest work on the first page, and on the newest page onward to keep things current. Thank you for your time, mates!

    I’d marry Meiling. Having a wife, who knows martial arts sounds really stellar. Would be nice to train with her sometime. Plus she needs more love, and what’s wrong with that? Date Nitori. Despite how she might make me feel regarding my intelligence.(What with her being a genius, and I’m not...) Nitori could be fun to hang out with. I’d play with some of her gadgets she built. We both like cucumbers, so that’s a plus? Sorry to the Sakuya fans. Knife-wielding chronomancers are definitely not my cup of tea to stick around with, per se. Not that I hate her. Far from it. But a hard choice had to be made. Seiga Kaku. Yuuka Kazami. Satori Komeiji.

    Well, to put my thoughts on these in turn . . . 1) You aren't missing much. To be frank, Zun's plots are generally excuse plots. His dialouge has some offbeat humor, but intricate plots and compelling characters simply isn't something he does. There's a reason fanmade material can have such a wide range. 2) That's unfortunate. I'ld understand if you aren't a fan of fighters or IaMP/SWRs' setup, but they are a decent look at the roster's personalities. They are part of the reason why the 6-8 cast is as popular as they are, and more consistent in fan-portrayals than some of the later ones. (I also personally prefer the older fighters to the newer ones, but that's opinion) They are not essential by any means though, just a good point of reference. 3) Understandable, given that there isn't a whole lot to gotten aside from the massive number of characters. There are a few print works however, that are of some help. Only some help, however, as many of the one that would explore the lore are written by in-universe characters, and thus, not entirely reliable. Grimoire of Marisa and Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red are examples, the former being Marisa commenting on the Spellcard system and the magic used by others, the second being Aya's newspaper (unfortunately known for stretching the truth). Most other printworks are comedic, slice of life style. The notable exception however, is Silent Sinner in Blue, which is a fairly serious and dramatic story, which, while rather mediocre in my opinion, is probably as definitive as you can get with the 6-8 cast. Given how loose the plot is between the games, the PC-98 is hardly essential for understanding anything in rest of the series. There are only four characters returning from that era, Reimu, Marisa, Yuuka Kazami, and Alice Margatroid. Reimu and Marisa are the same, though Marisa started as a rival working for/aprentice of one of the era's main villains; Mima. Yuuka was a villain from the fourth game, and knowing this explains Reimu's reaction to her in PoFV, the only game in which she has reapeared. Alice appeared in the fifth game, then became a reoccuring character for a while (6-11), and reversing Yuuka, knowing this explains some of Alice's behavior. When it comes down to it, though, only a handful of characters have well-defined personalities, and the setting and lore are often frustratingly vague. A lot of what the fanbase will talk about is just commonly accepted headcanon, rather than actual "top order canon" material. Even most of the official print works aren't written by Zun, and are quite loose with established rules and knowledge about the setting (hence the usual comedic angle).

    Hello! I've never really been part of online community before, so I don't know if I'll actually post much... but oh well. I discovered Touhou through music remixes on youtube and started playing EoSD since 2018. I haven't beaten every Touhou game I've played, but so far I've tried games 6 through 9. I wanna start 10 onwards soon. As for my other interests, I like programming, I play Nintendo games, I'm learning Japanese (but still a complete beginner) and I occasionally cook Japanese food. Nice to meet you, have a nice day : )

    Hello everyone, nice to meet you. I've been a big fan of Touhou and been playing the games since 2013. I started with Touhou 6: EOSD and worked my way up. I've played tons of the fangames and listened to tons of the soundtracks and remixes/covers over the course of my time. Aside from Touhou, I'm also a big fan of JRPGs and Survival Horror games. I'm hoping to try and be somewhat active in Forums or Discord as I'm kind of nervous speaking online. If anyone wants to show me something new or teach me new strategies please do. I love learning new stuff about Touhou. Where I'm from I'm probably the only person who likes Touhou so hopefully I'll make some good friends here. Thanks for having me

    Release Information Type: RPG Developer: FocasLens Publisher: FocasLens Release: Comiket 89, on December 30, 2015 Language: Japanese (English patch included but not installed) AKA Gensou Ningyou Enbu - Yume no Kakera Installation Instructions Refer to the video at the bottom of the page, courtesy of Drunken_Flower. The base game is also included with this download. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Description This is the expansion to the popular fangame, Touhou Puppet Dance Performance. It plays very similarly to the base game with the main differences being the story plays out in a slightly different order, and puppets featuring Touhou characters from 14.5 and 15 are now included, which the previous game did not have. Additionally, new areas can be found in the expansion, as well as a new puppet type, the Warped type. In this game's story, the player character finds themself transported to Gensokyo, to learn that a strange incident is occurring; many puppets shaped like familiar Touhou characters are running around Gensokyo, and no one knows where they're coming from. At the same time, people have learned to tame these puppets, and many are using them to battle one another in a form of new sport. Regardless, the player cannot return home until the incident is resolved; they decide to use these puppets to help solve the incident, so that they can return to the outside world (why would you ever do that though). For those who don't know anything about Touhou Puppet Dance Performance, it's basically Touhou in Pokemon form with a few key differences, those being that the equivalent to what IVs are in Pokemon are visible in TPDP. Instead of being a numerical value between 1 and 31, it's a letter grade between S and E-, S being the best a stat can be and E- being the worst a stat can be. The way moves are learned and EVs are gained is also significantly different; when you hit the requirements for learning a new move, you can learn it through the Edit screen of your puppet where you can learn a skill from the entire list of what's available to the puppet at that level, though they cost PP to learn which is gained through winning battles. You can also use PP to reinforce stats, which is basically EVs except you have objective control over them. Evolutions are handled in the form of style changes that every puppet has available from level 30 onward. Every puppet gets the option to evolve into any of three forms, two of which range across Power, Speed, Assist, or Defense, depending on the puppet. In Shard of Dreams, a new Extra style is available as the third option for any puppet to evolve into. For example, Chen at level 30 can choose to evolve into either Extra Chen, Speed Chen, or Assist Chen. You can only style change once though; the only way to reverse it is through reincarnation which is only available postgame. https://youtu.be/uO6S2akrRes

    This is a thread for random doodles and sketches people make. A couple of mine: A drawing of Reimu I did over a couple of days. It's in pencil so the image appears a bit faint, but I increased the contrast to try and make it stand out a bit more. I started this one from memory, but referred to a picture to add some of the finer details, particularly her bow. A quick doodle of Cirno I did at the bottom of some paper I was using. Did this one fully from memory (not too difficult, Cirno is super memorable). This one's in pen so it's a lot easier to see. However it does also mean I can't erase that accidental line next to her leg...

    Out of the Touhou games I've played (everything up to 11 so far (not counting some spin-offs), currently playing through 12), my favourite is definitely Imperishable Night. I too could write an essay about why I think this game is one of the best in the series (in my opinion), but that's something for another time. Admittedly, the fact that IN is also the only Touhou game that I've beaten the extra in so far probably contributes more than a little to my liking of this game and its characters. The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil also deserves an honourable mention for being the game that got me so captivated with the franchise to begin with, plus it has a top tier soundtrack.

    Sorry again for posting in a dead topic. Last night, my family and I went to a Death Metal concert for a band named Children Of Bodom. We got to talk to their Keyboardist & Bassist Janne Wirman & Henkka T Blacksmith respectively. I forgot to bring an album for them to sign, so I improvised and lent them my copy of Forbidden scrollery. They were cool with it, thank goodness. So now it’s counted as Bodom memorabilia!

    @buskerdogI could be wrong, but... What I've found is that the official comics and manga give insight to some aspects of Touhou lore, but the in media res problem kind of persists all throughout the official series. A lot of what you learn in Touhou lore comes from what people talk about happening in the past. Character interactions that hint at the vague history of Gensokyo become your best friend and there are a few blanks you just gotta fill in yourself. I respect that you don't wanna read the wiki pages, but it's a hub when it comes to the information sought after because of questions like yours. I'd say look for the official comics, here's a list: https://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Official_Literature Also, if you have any interest in looking at the translations of the many fan songs that exist, a lot of the artists try to accurately capture the feeling of a character or a setting or a storyline only hinted at. But that requires a lot of cross-referencing with other songs to see which themes stay consistent from song to song. Songs also often incorporate a lot of fan-cannon so be careful, that method is more supplemental than anything haha. It just takes a lot of digging and a lot of playing and a lot of filling in the blanks, I think haha. If I recall correctly, the PC-98 games aren't heavy with lore, they do feature places that are interesting and not returned to often, like Hell. So just get to playing those games when you feel like it haha. That's my take, anyway. I hope it helps at all!

    Oh, there's a lot of history, but I'll give a short version. While this forum is relatively recent, the original incarnation of the site and forum are from 2011 or early 2012 (not entirely sure). I joined the forum (as a normal member) in late 2012, and sadly am the only remaining member from that particular time.* There were two forums prior to this one, the original got taken down due to a malicious user, and the second died off due to inactivity before the first Discord was created (the current one is actually the second). None of the original creators remain, all having left or retired, and having passed on leadership. *There are a number from not long after, such as Ceje and Jmonkey

    Yeah, from the sounds of it you fell in love with this series in a similar way as myself. This is the kind of series that can keep you busy for quite a while. I've hardly even touched the PC-98 and fighting games myself yet. And yeah, SA and LoLK had my favorite stories, especially LoLK. It's one of those games that if you try to explain the plot to people it can sound utterly ridiculous, but it has a TON of depth to it. Plus the game really pushed me to my limits which I can appreciate. And ty! I hope yours comes along nicely as well ? One of my best friends went to Japan and then shortly after my sister and her husband went there too. I got my friend to pick me up a bunch of the games while he was there and my sister to grab the rest when she went (minus the PC-98 games). It was a good deal because they only cost around 13 dollars each there compared to the 40+ I'd be spending per copy on getting the physical copies imported over here. That said I'm still super glad more of the games are coming to steam. Touhou is the kind of series you really need to go out of your way to discover and get into in the west, and having the games on steam will open the series up to a larger audience I hope. I'm considering buying the games a 2nd time when they're released on steam just as a show of support in the hopes that they'll continue making them a bit more available to western audiences. One thing I find with Touhou is this series has a LOT of completely brokenly overpowered characters, a lot more so then first appears. That being said I also think this particular matchup worked out well for Sakuya do to her experience with vampires.

    @DreamleafI gotta admit, it’s pretty stellar how we were rooting for the opposite fighters to win that One Minute Melee. But I definitely agree, I’m glad Sakuya won. And ja, I’ve been playing Luna Nights since it was first announced on Steam. I love how they utilize Sakuya’s Time Manipulation. I gotta get around to finishing it among an entire slew of 2hu games.(Think I got around 30 of them now?) SA & LOLK are my personal favorites in the mainline series. The stories for both are top notch and in some areas; heartbreaking. I plan on buying LOLK when it arrives to Steam in April, along with Impossible Spell Card. Believe me, I’m on the same boat. I intend on collecting every bit of Touhou work I can find. Especially after finding out my local bookstore started selling the Forbidden Scrollery Manga. Also I wish ya the best of luck in completing your collection, mate. Cheers!
