I remenber this question showing up on /jp/ many times and never really coming to a actual answer so I'll try to ask it here: why do you think Touhou is so popular? Is it the music, the genre, the characters? There are so many other danmaku that feature look-a-like mechanics and characters, soundtrack, and yet Touhou is amazingly more popular than the rest of those. So, what is your opinion on the subject?
>> No. 1545 [Edit]
All 3. Also I think Touhou is so popular because it was the first to do something like this with its setting and music style. Previously STGs almost always involved a space ship in space, shooting aliens from space.
>> No. 1546 [Edit]
ZUN combined great music, bullet patterns and little girls in frilly dresses. I don't know if he was the first to do it, but he's the one known for it, and that's what counts.

Do you think the touhou games were divinely inspired?

In the sense that ZUN did not come up with it all on his own and received help from another party, Yukari, then yes, I do think that.

Anyone know of a place where one can find and download tracks from the various games? I don't want remixes or anything like that, just the originals. I know there was some program that pulled the tracks from the games as MP3s but I've forgotten what It was called or how it worked.

I also am gonna challenge myself. I'm gonna start with IN on normal and play at least once a day for a week, then at the end of the week I play on hard and see how I do. If I do well, then I move onto another game for a week with maybe a play of IN on hard every so often.
So this could be a Marisa thread then, since that's who I'm gonna be using.

Anyone know how well PS2 controller d-pads work with the games? My hand starts cramping after a while of using the keyboard for it.

I know what program you're talking about. I ripped the music off all the games a while back. It was a real pain in the ass.

Check out http://www.nyaa.eu/?page=search&cats=0_0&filter=0&term=touhou+music

Someone there should have ripped and uploaded it, so it should not be hard to find.

As for your controller issue, I've tried using PS3 controllers but my computer does not recognize them. It worked with my arcade stick though, so if you play a lot of fighters and have bought a stick be it hori or madcatz, it should work on most PC's.

This torrent has, amongst a enormous number of remixes, all of the game's soundtracks. It is devided in an archive of its own so you can download only the soundtracks even if you dont want the rest of the remixes.

What do you think of the dialogue in the games? Do you like them?

They do seem to fit the games, but they seem somewhat, uh, interesting to say the least.

I really like it. The bitchiness really comes through and I like to imagine the talk is part of a psychological mind game and that the whole danmaku thing is a high ritualised form of duelling for women in Gensokyo.

>"Looks more to me like 'Man uses the decimal system.'" ? The hell is that supposed to mean?
That's sort of a Kanji-wordplay in the original (十進法 vs 十字架), doesn't translate too well into English, obviously.

Some of the lines are pretty cool and witty, but somehow I fail to get the meaning behind most of the dialog and the story behind it all. No matter what language I play it in, 90% of the time I sit there reading and thinking "what the fuck are they even talking about?"
>> No. 1527 [Edit]
Yeah I need to reread everything at the wiki to even begin to understand what they're saying.

I've always been amazed at the PoFV endings though. The art is great (made by Alphes, not ZUN, I know) and they read really well (good translation, maybe?), show what the canon personalities are supposed to be like, have a sort of dreamy feeling, and are acoompanied by a great song, among other things.
I absolutely love the PoFV endings, too bad none of the regular endings leave me feeling like that.
>> No. 1528 [Edit]
I absolutely love the Prismrivers dialogues. They're just awesome.

Sup guys.

After resisting the pull for years, I've decided to make my way into the touhou world, but I know next to nothing of it, and since you guys seem to know everything about everything, and this IS the touhou board, where would be the best place to start?

When did that start, personally I never had that to noticable degrees yet.

Also, any tips what to look out for regarding the body temperature regulation business you are willing to share?

Think, when does your heart-rate raise considerably? When you are under immediate stress. Think when your mom was about to open the door while you were mastrubating. Emotions can induce the same thing. For me, it was more intense when I was working on a new game at the MOST difficult I could possibly handle, and endurance spell cards. To keep that high-stress level constant for minutes will raise your body temp enough to notice. You have to challenge yourself to the point of constant dodging. You can't do that on normal mode most of the time. Once you start to do that, study your nerves, your muscle tension in various places, and your psychology (aka: what is making me care so much? Why am I worked up?). Then, finally you find a way to fantasize that task or challenge that will create the stress in your head. To those particular buddhists, it's some difficult-to-recite mantra.

A lot of them, though Remilia takes priority.

I think I would level up 50 times just from spending my time in such a way.

Anyone playing much Sky Arena? I love this game.
>> No. 1448 [Edit]
I just started playing this yesterday a bit, takes a bit of getting used to it seems, I found the controls and what not a big strange at first, and had a hard time just finding the enemy that kept shooting at me and flying off, I failed hard needless to say, by the time I figured out how to maneuver half way properly and target, the match was over.

anyways, for people interested, you can grab it here.

Everyone knows there are some glaring inconsistencies that will spark infinite debates but Touhou fan work has to have had some of the biggest influence on its source material thank most properties in video game history. Even ZUN admits that he references fanon in his creation of new material.

Discuss your feelings on fanon and the positive and/or negative impact it has had on established continuity.

Fanon is great, to an extent: the problems come in when you get fanon based on fanon based on fanon etc. For example, Alice was originally cold and antisocial, and fans used that to turn her into a tsundere. A bit far from her original personality, but still okay. However, then some fans emphasized the dere part until she eventually turned into a moeblob. New fans often think canon Alice acts like her depiction in Marisa Stole the Precious Thing, when that's almost the opposite. The same can be said for altering the character designs: there have undoubtedly been times when a character was drawn so differently from the official designs that you would never know who it was if the artist didn't say.

On a more personal level for me, I accept that Tenshi could be a masochist, but it's annoying how she's been reduced to a drooling slut whose sole purpose in life is to get people to beat her up.

To reference IOSYS for a second time, I would like to draw attention to their interpretation of Shikieiki, which they made out to be a vengeful bitch, rather than the caring girl she is shown to be in PoFV. The character took a complete 180, and has been used as reference for many fanworks, which ultimately ruined the enjoyment of fan work containing Shikieiki for me.
