I can't beat Perfect Cherry Blossom on easy.

Should I give up on touhou games forever?

That's great. Reading this made me want to play, but trying 18 left me completely despondent.
>> No. 2380 [Edit]
I know I'm late, but one thing I've noticed is that when a game seems too difficult, leaving it for a long stretch of months or even more and when I return I'm paradoxically always a better player than when I left. This strategy has worked for me with everything from Doom to Guitar Hero.

I just realized Imperishable Night is the Ikaruga of Touhou

Finally managed to beat EOSD on normal for the first time few days ago (although I got the bad ending since I continued). It's not much but I'm still a little proud of it.

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.

This is more what you're looking for.
"Getting into something" requires enough interest to look for things on your own and experience them for yourself in a winding, meandering path. That's how people here got into touhou for the most part. There's no tour guide in real hobbies.
>> No. 2391 [Edit]
I was asking for the opposite of an 'tourist guide' which was exactly what I was going to find if I just put "how to get into touhou" in whatever browser.

Anyways, the link you posted seems to be useful. So, thanks.

>I want to know everything I need to know to get into it.

You don't need to know anything to get into it, most don't seem to.

>What games I should play

Start with EOSD, it's the most important one with the most recognisable and frequently recurring characters. Touhou essentially starts from there(there are people that will get angry at such a statement but even ZUN said that the pre-EOSD games are not really cannon).
>to the most recent
You kind of have to play them all if you want to meet all of the characters, each game introduces new ones. That said, if you don't like the games you can just read the Dialogue on Touhou wiki.

>the mangas
>and the things I should read/play to know all the lore.

Touhou Wiki lists all the official works, read them. You can find the works themselves on Moriya Shrine. The games contain character dialogue and some basic backstory but most of the lore is in literature.

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?

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

I would like more pictures like this. I lost my folder so I only have four. I will dump what I have.
This can be a reaction thread as well.

Not anytime soon, no. And if we do it will probably be Cirno because Sakurai has shit taste.

I can't see touhou ever happening. Feels way too out there.

Do you have any 'unpopular' opinions that most other Touhou players seem to disagree with you on?

For example:
- I enjoyed Touhou 14 and 15 more than 12 and 13.
- I think Perfect Cherry Blossom is the easiest of the Windows Touhou games.
- I prefer Plastic Mind over Alice's other boss themes.

I agree and that last spell card makes you dodge several layers of bullets to stop her from absorbing spirits and extending the fight longer than needed.

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"
