Kosuzu Motoori is the one on the left.
Those works which are not stand-alone and can have an ongoing nature to them; at this time, two presently do, and those two are listed first, as they’re pretty popular to keep up with right now.
When it comes to downloading these, the way things work is, you’re expected to make your own main folder for containing the series of any of these multi-volume items (the one exception being “Eastern and Little Nature Deity,” which is only a single volume), and place the unzipped contents in it. The reason being, even though the zip files themselves are marked with which series they’re part of, the folder containing each volume only designates which volume it is (“Volume 2,” for example) so it can be plopped right into the appropriate series folder.
So here’s what you want to end up with, for example:
* Forbidden Scrollery [Series folder you created.]
-> Volume folders (Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3, and Volume 4).
Synopsis: What, did you think the mischief had ended? Absolutely not! Proving that the popular series showing the ongoing adventures of the Three Mischievous Fairies cannot be put down by repeated disasters befalling those who do its art, we are now treated to another attempt to show us what our most beloved comedy team is up to these days. As it turns out; quite a bit – as the cover depicts, Clownpiece joins our favorite fairy troupe at this point, multiplying the mischief and mayhem!
Series Notes: This story is the fourth in “Touhou Sangetsusei” (the story of the three mischievous fairies); “Eastern and Little Nature Deity” came first, then “Strange and Bright Nature Deity,” followed by “Oriental Sacred Place,” and then this saga.
Synopsis: This series introduces the human book renter and collector Kosuzu Motoori as the main character, along with her book shop, Suzunaan. The story centers around Kosuzu’s mysterious ability to read any book, no matter what language it’s written in. Subplots revolve around her assortment of various rare and dangerous demon books, as well as those who come to her shop needing to utilize her skills to learn more about the things they’re dealing with.
Series Notes: This is among the most recently-started saga in Zun’s written works, and since it’s still ongoing, remains a popular choice to read and keep up with, alongside Wild and Horned Hermit.
Synopsis: There’s a new face in town; hermit Kasen, whose most distinct feature is her tightly-wrapped injured arm. More importantly, exactly who is Kasen, and why is she suddenly helping everyone out? Is she really a hermit? What’s the secret behind her bandaged arm? These questions and more are answered or are to be answered in the future.
Series Notes: “Wild and Horned Hermit” is the current story arc of the “Touhou Ibarakasen” saga, and is still ongoing; it’s one of the longest-running single storylines in the franchise, and remains one of the most popular to keep up with at the moment, alongside Forbidden Scrollery.
Artist: Aya Azuma
Original Run: 2010 – Ongoing
Synopsis: It seems everyone’s interested in going to the moon all of a sudden; Reimu receives a message telling her to train for the trip, and Remilia decides she wants to take over the lunar capital. Amidst all this, there is one who is escaping attention, manipulating events under the radar; someone who has a more subtle goal in mind: the Silent Sinner in Blue. The focus of this work is primarily on the Watatsuki sisters, Yorihime and Toyohime, as well as a moon rabbit we now call “Little Reisen.”
Series Notes: This story is one of three in the loosely interconnected storyline of “Touhou Bougetsushou,” alongside the short novel “Cage in Lunatic Runagate”.
Synopsis: This is a rather whimsical and comedic look into the everyday lives of the moon rabbits who live in Eientei and those who live with them – Reisen, Tewi, Eirin, and Kaguya – and those they cross paths with. This has some limited crossover with the storyline of “Silent Sinner in Blue,” as Yorihime and Toyohime make appearances, along with common faces (such as Reimu and Marisa) and some whose personalities were previously not as fleshed-out (you’ll get to see Akyu!).
Series Notes: This story is the third of three in the loosely interconnected storyline of “Touhou Bougetsushou,” alongside the manga “Silent Sinner in Blue” (above) and the short novel “Cage in Lunatic Runagate.”
Unique Character Features: In Inaba, we will meet the new Reisen (named after Reisen Udongein), as well as having some cameo appearances by Yorihime and Toyohime Watatsuki.
Synopsis: There is a group of three mischievous fairies who are the traditional blame for anyone who loses their way in the Forest of Magic. Their names are Sunny Milk, Luna Child, and Star Sapphire. Each with their own special abilities, they use teamwork to pull pranks on others. This is the first saga in the story of the three troublemakers.
Series Notes: This story is first in “Touhou Sangetsusei” (the story of the three mischievous fairies); “Strange and Bright Nature Deity” comes after this, then “Oriental Sacred Place.” The illustrator had to quit for health reasons, and when the new illustrator took over, the manga was renamed, so this original saga is only one volume, containing only 5 chapters. EaLND is not quite as good (or as long) as SaBND, and contains some name mistakes, but is still the necessary beginning to the tale of the Three Mischievous Fairies.
Synopsis: The Three Mischievous Fairies: Sunny Milk can make the group invisible, Luna Child can mask sound, and Star Sapphire can detect any nearby living things. With these abilities, and maybe a bit of planning, they love to play practical jokes, including making humans become lost in the Forest of Magic. This is the second saga in the story of the three mischief makers.
Series Notes: This story is second in “Touhou Sangetsusei” (the story of the three mischievous fairies); “Eastern and Little Nature Deity” came first, then “Strange and Bright Nature Deity,” then “Oriental Sacred Place,” and finally “Visionary Fairies in Shrine”
Game Tie-Ins: Extra Chapter 2, found in Volume 2, is the story behind the game “Great Fairy Wars” (Touhou 12.8).
Synopsis: We continue to track the misadventures of our favorite three mischievous fairies – Sunny Milk, Luna Child, and Star Sapphire. They have now taken up residence in a large tree near the Hakurei Shrine; what shenanigans can they get into from there?
Series Notes: This story is the third in “Touhou Sangetsusei” (the story of the three mischievous fairies); “Eastern and Little Nature Deity” came first, then “Strange and Bright Nature Deity,” and now “Oriental Sacred Place.” It was announced that, despite the fact that this arc was completed, there would be no further serialization of this storyline, presumably since this arc’s artist also wound up in the hospital in the middle of it. However, the artist seems to have recovered and is now making “Visionary Fairies in Shrine.”
