So, the results of the 2021 popularity contest came up some days ago, and Youmu won again. How does she keeps getting away with it? What's her secret to so many fans?

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.

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.

I want to know everything I need to know to get into it. What games I should play, to the most old to the most recent, the mangas, the doujishins, the best fan-games, the music, and the things I should read/play to know all the lore.

I want to know everything.

Yeah, this thread is a bit baffling. If you like the thing, go do the thing. If you haven't already done the thing, the why the drive to get into it?

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.

Who the fuck is this guy? I've never heard of him before, and a quick look on his YT channel shows he's some retard who posts normalfag memes and he's also a spic. If this is supposed to be "the last real Touhou fan community" then Touhou is dead.

The post seems to be made by someone new to imageboards that stumbled on here and couldn't be bothered to lurk. Not only is the post full of tells, the twitter account paints a much fuller picture.

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.

That's some bullshit right there.

"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.
>>2427
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

the artist is a tentacle rape man first then a tits man

Rather than Strike Withes where the girls have mecha legs, the mechabroom part reminds me of its spiritual predecessor Konami Mecha Musume

clownpiece wasn‘t intended to represent america, although a loli uncle sam could work it wouldn‘t in this case.

Honestly her design baffles me. As far as i know she is a lampad, a type of nymph from hell that follow hecate, carrying a torch whose flames induce madness.
The flag design incorporated into everything is very exaggerated and doesn’t tell much about the character at all.
A theory of mine is that this is to annoy the lunarians due to the flag that was planted on the moon, maybe.
>> No. 2365 [Edit]

I feel a simpler explanation is that Zun thinks Americans are a bunch of clowns pretending to want peace.

I read somewhere that clownpiece was designed that way to make of fun of how Japan is sometimes brought up in American media seemingly randomly and without real significance to anything else.

Touhou 16 "Hidden Star in The Four Seasons" announced! (about 10 days ago)

Cirno and Aya are playable. It's going to be "easier" than LoLK, presumably no checkpoint system. ZUN has decided to "return to [his] roots with something that simply aims to make you feel good to play"
