    ZUN has just announced Touhou 17 titled 東方鬼形獣(Touhou Kikeijuu)〜 Wily Beast and Weakest Creature. https://kourindou.exblog.jp/28205045/  "The animal spirits of hell are planning to control the earth with their power. We are going to get rid of them by teaming up with allied animal spirits."  Heading to hell are Reimu, Marisa, and Youmu.  It's darker than usual, it has a lot of beast elements and it's a slightly aggressive shooting game *since the game is still under development, the image can change at anytime It is expected to be released on this Summer's comiket (Comiket 96) (if nothing happens), and the trial version will be released on Reitaisai 16

    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 : )

    Well... for me, i read from the oldest first. but some people read differently. wew... a wall of texts.. AND take note that the music CDs have stories in them So yeah... if you want to start with date, there it is if you want to start from popularity, it's either The Inaba of the Moon and Inaba of the Earth, Wild and Horned Hermit or Forbidden Scrollery.

    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

    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.

Language: English Patched Keyboard Controls Arrow keys - Movement (Z) - Select (X) - Cancel (C) - Swap Items (A/D) - Navigate Menu left/right (S/Space) - Open Menu Gamepad Controls Direction Pad - Movement (A) - Select (B) - Cancel (X) - Swap Items (L/R) - Navigate Menu left/right (Y/Start) - Open Menu Description Storyline: Touhou Puppet Dance Performance (TPDP) starts off with the player character being transported to Gensokyo through unknown circumstances by Yukari. Seemingly there to help solve an incident that occured recently that involves mysterious puppets that seemingly came out of nowhere. These puppets represent all of the maidens of Gensokyo, and its up to the player to solve the incident whilst finding a way back home. Gameplay: Plays heavy similar to Pokemon. If you've ever played Pokemon, you'll quickly grasp this game. A few key differences though. All the "IV" stats are now shown through Ranks (C-S+) "EV" stats, movesets, and even abilities can be changed on the dime using the PP that puppets receive throughout each fight. All "HMs" are replaced by key items that serve the same purpose. Puppets are caught through something called soul threads, these require you to set, then KO the puppet to catch them. Completely opposite to Pokemon. A whole new type table (See "Other Sources" for info on how to see this type table) Other Sources: A good site for extra helpful information on TPDP is of course, the TPDP wiki. Link here. Here you can view the puppet dex, type table, abilities, and even the locations for the puppets.

    I'd marry Mystia, because she has a sweet singing voice and she can scare people we don't like away with her power to cause night blindness. Despite being a youkai she isn't really a cruel or dangerous person, just a bit of a prankster, and even then it's very low key, just frightening people who venture out on roads at night (actually I'd probably find doing that with her pretty entertaining, haha). I reckon she'd be quite nice once you get to know her, and tbh she's kinda cute. Plus, she likes to go out at night. I like night time too :D. I'd date Yukari. It would be interesting to talk someone who is more or less a pseudo-goddess, and also she seems to have an unlimited supply of sake that it is apparently "90% alcohol" so we'd get drunk af XD. I'd kill Aya. I wouldn't be able to stand being with someone who has a reputation for spreading lies and misinformation, and also she's sort of a stalker. Better she isn't there to mislead people and record information about them without their permission. Sakuya Izayoi Hong Meiling Nitori Kawashiro

    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!

    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...

    Pretty cute drawings ya have, mate. Reimu’s pose reminds me a bit of Narumi Yatadera. If ya don’t mind, I’ll share a quick doodle, I made some time ago. Inspired by the Don’t Starve character portraits.(Sorry for the cloudy appearance. I can’t draw hands to save my life.)

    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

    Depends what kind of controller you're trying to get working and also the compatibility of the software. https://www.x360ce.com/ This is a software that emulates a 360 controller so people can use a PS4 and other controllers on windows. Mind you, if the program has no controller support then that's a different solution I cannot help on. Hope this helps.

    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.

    Hello and greetings from your destitute self-appointed vice-president of the Doujin Manga Club! I've been thinking about making a little competition lately, something simple and fresh yet stylish. The basic idea is a treasure hunt for a Touhou manga, official or otherwise, that best captures the essence of daily life in Gensokyo. Now, what do I mean by that? To put it cleanly, a manga that tells the story of one character or multiple characters going about their lives in a way that could be seen as an average day. For examples: a manga wherein Sakuya is tending to the everyday duties of being a maid at the Scarlet Devil Mansion. Or a manga about Nitori trying to make a new gadget or gizmo. Or even a manga about Reimu trying to stave off her hunger pangs. Just to think of a few. Once all the submissions are gathered people would vote on which one they think best fits the theme and the winner gets bragging rights and maybe 5 bucks or something. The rules would follow as so: 1) One submission per person. 2) Each submission can only be one chapter. The length of the chapter may vary. 3) If you made a submission you must vote or else you sacrifice your right to be in the runnings 4) Can't vote for your own submission So, who would be interested? If anything this first competition would be a trial run, see what works, see what doesn't. Laying down the groundwork for future competitions if everyone is into it.

    @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!

    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.

    Hello everyone, and it’s quite nice to meet you all here! I go by Murasa these days but people used to call me Yoshie, if I may be honest. anyway, my interest in Touhou sort of started back in 2016, I think? There were several pieces of the series that lead me to discovering Touhou, but one namely was Scarlet Curiosity.(Needless to say it sparked my curiosity in the franchise, ahaha... Sorry about that.) Since then, I’ve become totally enamored by ZUN’s work, and all he’s inspired. Especially his music. Apart from this series; I enjoy playing the guitar, drums, bass and keyboard. Reading about Eastern folklore. Playing & reading horror games/stories. So I’ve rambled enough about myself. I hope we can be good friends in the near future. It’s been a long while since I’ve joined an online community so I’m really nervous, to be completely honest. take care! P.S: This is not an RP profile. Captain Murasa is just one of my faves. Apart from Hecatia, maybe.

    According to Alternative Facts in Eastern Utopia, Tengu (the ruler of youkai mountain) is a hierarchical society and Hell is a meritocratic society. So... If i have to choose I'll rule over youkai mountain since hierarchical society sounds easier to rule (I think since I don't really understand how these society works) Which do you prefer: Going to Chernobyl with Utsuho or going to Antarctica with Cirno

And of course, there exists those who seek to use this phenomenon for their own benefit… Unique Gameplay Mechanics Occult System Returning from Urban Legend in Limbo is the occult system. By pressing the Melee and Weak Attack buttons together, each character can unless their unique occult attacks. You can only do this while your occult meter (in the upper left/right of the screen) is active however. Last Words return as well, being activated by pressing the Strong Attack and Switch buttons together, with a full spellcard bar and a full occult bar. Pulling this off successfully deals massive damage, but using it makes it impossible to use Occult attacks or your Slave for the rest of the round.

Like the occult attacks, this can only be done while the occult meter is active, and also drains the occult meter while the Slave is active. While the Slave character is active, occult attacks cannot be used, but your health regenerates until there’s no white part of your health bar left. Slave characters can also add their own spellcards after a Master’s spellcard, by holding forward and pressing the Switch button during it while you have a full spellcard bar.
