How do you think Touhou characters perceive and would react to the outside world and its events? Stuff from the outside does occasionally get in, so they aren't completely isolated. Do you think they wonder though what goes on out there? Or are most of them apathetic?

Like, how would Remilia react to the death of Princess Diana or Queen Elizabeth? The collapse of the British Empire? Part of me thinks she just wouldn't care, but I'm not sure these characters have totally lost their sense of national identity.

Hong Meiling definitely hasn't. She's really prideful of her home country, so I think she'd at least be curious what's going on over there. And maybe her old-timey values would conflict with China's present-day ones.

I remember reading CoLA and Rinnosuke's reaction of shock, awe, and confusion would probably be many of the former-outside-worlders-or-people-who-visited-once reaction. So much time has passed for many of them that it'd be nigh unrecognizable.
Unless they're newer residents like Sanae, maybe? It's been like 10+ years or so, she'd probably be a little curious about what's going on. I'm not sure if she'd place much importance to it though. She seems very dedicated to her duties now in Gensokyo.
Kanako seems familiar enough with how the current state of the outside world is, at least in SoPM, so she doesn't have a reason to wonder. She could just go there to see how it's doing if she really wanted to given as she's gotten sake from the outside before.

I imagine apathetic. They probably see things similar to how we see issues going on in other countries, but with less interest because they're much more disconnected and affected. It would be like asking someone living in a small midwestern US town what they think about the political corruption and roaming gangs in some south African country, or any of that stuff with Taiwan. You'd probably get met with "Don't know, don't care, not my problem.". Only reason they might even show slight interest in the Ukraine stuff, is the concern in the back of their head about who Russia might go to war with next.
Gensokyo is too removed and isolated to care. As far as know, it's not dependent on the outside world for supplies or materials of any kind and is 100% self sufficient. Rinnosuke's side hustle isn't exactly vital or necessary for gensokyo.
I don't think it would even mater if humans all blew each other to Kingdome come would it?
Maybe if the world decided to go to war with Gensokyo for whatever reason, then they'd have a reason to pay attention to it, but short of that...

>some south African country
That makes sense when you've never even been to that country, but Gensokyo is part of Japan. A number of residents there are basically immigrants. Do immigrants care what happens in their country of origin, yes. Do mid-westerners care what happens in New York city, yes again(see 9/11).
>> No. 2482 [Edit]
That reminds me. I left my home town two years ago.
A few months ago I saw it mentioned on the news due to wild fires surrounding it. I hate that town and never want to go back, but I did find the news somewhat fascinating.

Normalfag anime fans, or as I like to call them "ironicweebs" don't know anything outside of the likes of jojo, dragonball, demon slayer, etc. They rarely add anything to their short list, with the most recent addition being chainsaw man.
There's a few characters like Cirno who have some level of popularity with normies, but half of them probably never played the games.
>> No. 2475 [Edit]
I wouldn't call them "ironic". A shallow interest in something is still an interest. They might tinge that interest with a layer of irony because liking anime still has some negative connotations to it, and that's their way of compensating. They aren't interested in "otaku culture", in a larger sense. Pretending there's a black and white divide between "real" and "fake" fans seems like an over-simplification to me.

Not that anon, but I find "shallow fans" to be disrespectful to the creators with their quirky quips and whatnot. I just tend to avoid them since there's no point in getting worked up about it.

EoSD is 20 years old now! Let's discuss how it affected you and the series.
>> No. 2442 [Edit]
It rebooted the series and its effect on me is whatever effect Touhou fan media has had, since the vast majority of that is based on post EoSD characters.
>> No. 2443 [Edit]
Wow, 20 years!! And I still haven't beat it.
>> No. 2444 [Edit]
I owe a HUGE part of my life to the touhou project, I met my best friend through it and I owe my current livelyhood to it. Honestly it's scary as fuck to think how my life would have turned out without it.

As for EoSD itself, it's still one of if not the best game in the series, it still deserves its popularity, its character designs are iconic as fuck, music is top tier, there are no gimmicks to the gameplay and it still has some of the most beautiful attack patterns in the series, such as Meiling's bullets. I honestly believe if something like HSiFS was Touhou 6 the series simply wouldn't have been as popular.

Just follow Magna Mausoleum de Fide et Ratione, one of the last real Touhou fan communities on the internet, since the harm made by posers since 2015 banished a lot of communities in a sea of degenerate circlejerks.

Recently a lot of Touhou works from direct download sites have been taken down via both legit and false DMCA claims.
Friendly reminder to save what you can, and share where you can. Especially older works that aren't being sold anymore.

"Serious" corporations don't care about the "necessity" of enforcing their copyright. So regardless of how old or whether or not they have plans for the property, they will "protect their assets". It does not matter. They do not care. In their mind, this is an important part of ensuring profitability.

Also, we knew years ago ZUN sold out when he started making certain features of the mainline series console exclusive.

I don't know about the PC98 games but I do know PoFV is planned to have a Steam release. It's fair to assume the earlier games will also have Steam releases.
Also for what it is worth, ZUN often partakes in exhibitions where he shows off older work material including the PC98 titles. There was one recently that happened about the same time as the first two DMCAs funnily enough:
It reminds me of how art galleries don't allow you to take pictures because it'll ruin the value of the artwork. So I wouldn't be surprised if it was somewhat related in that sense. But that's just asspulling theories.
I want to say much before then as well, but I'm a bit forgetful about release dates...There's been too many big company collabs for something that's just a self proclaimed doujin work.
>> No. 2429 [Edit]
Listen here, the downloads are back on Moriya Shrine, supposedly the admins let them back on for limited time. So the time has come, grab what you can now!! I have already download every mainline primary game except PoFV. Will download more. You should try to get the other official games and fangames.

I'm playing Touhou Shoujo Tale of Beautiful Memories. It's an action rpg similar to Mario & Luigi where there's timed button presses. It's pretty fun and the presentation is mostly solid(purposefully pixelating art to make it look more retro is a questionable decision).

It is annoying how there's no consistent visual cue for when to press buttons, so you have to memorize when for each of your attacks and the opponent's attacks, after figuring them out through trial and error. For bosses this is especially a problem. I don't think having to correctly interpret sprite animations is a fair way of adding challenge.

The isometric platforming is also kind of awkward.

As a side note, the artist is obviously a tits man
