    Hello there, excuse me. Yes, you.

    I need you to help me with something.

    How do I stop this black-and-white sneak thief from breaking into my library and stealing my books? I know you love books yourselves, and imagine you might know some way to protect them.

    Create a fake arcane library in the exact place of your normal library. Change the library somewhere else. Anyone who enters the fake library is stuck forever.
    Or, stop being so asthmatic and learn to actually CATCH thieves.

    And I have to bear with this because we're two of the only three nerds of our kind in the area.

    There are some official comic printings written by ZUN and drawn by some other guy. Though I don't believe if they would peak your interest as if I remember correctly they are somewhat slice of life/joke based. Though feel free to make your own mind up at http://touhou.wikia.com/wiki/Touhou_Wiki .

    Yes. She's both the smartest fairy, the strongest fairy, and the one with the best memory. Most fairies can barely remember what they did a week ago. Cirno half-remembered stuff that happened sixty years ago - stuff that even motherfucking Yukari had half-forgotten already.

    So really, Cirno's pretty impressive. She's practically building herself against all genetic chance.
    >> Anonymous 03/02/10(Tue)15:03 No.8364113

    There's a couple, but really, Touhou is more explained in the books (Curiosities of Lotus Asia, Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red, Perfect Memento in strict Sense) than comics.

    However, for some little Touhou jokes by the author himself, you have Eastern Little Nature Deity and its related comics, which follow the life of three extremely low-tier prankster fairies. And then there's Inaba of the Moon and Inaba of the Earth, but if you haven't played Touhou 8 you won't understand shit there.

    No, actually. The comics tell entirely different stories with the same characters. It's the difference between two books in the same series, basically. You can always read a bit of the Touhou Wiki to educate yourself on the characters, though.

    Well, there are 4 canon mangas but like >>8363838 said 3 of them are just slice of life stuff.

    Silent Sinner in Blue

    This one is about an very "just as planned" booze raid to the moon, orchestrated by Yukari. The story earns a bit of stick due to a pair of rather annoying Wesleys it introduces, but personally there is nothing else wrong with it.

    Well, that's a bit of a problem lately, since Gensokyo.org's gallery of translated doujinshi is down. You could always use the torrent they made instead - it has EVERYTHING the gallery had, which includes a real fuckload of fan comics and most of the ZUN ones.

    As for the books? Well, sorry, pal, but you're up shit creek with weights on your feet. The most you have is Touhouwiki's attempts at partial translations, which aren't exactly written as a miracle of prose, and in fact get a bit babelfish-y at a couple places, since people with a good domain of both moonspeak and English are really hard to come by. For example, here you can read the attempts at translating Curiosities of Lotus Asia, a book detailing the daily life of half-youkai (and only male with a speaking part in the series) shopkeeper Rinnosuke as many of the other characters pass by his store and either buy stuff from him, mooch stuf from him, or give him headaches.

    There's also this. The main reason Touhou thrives is because it has one of the most goddamn prolific fanbases in the history of EVER. We can recommend some good doujinshis if you want.

    OK, yeah. I thought it was something like that, but, still. Get her some better control over her cold tricks, and she would be hax as Reimu, perhaps.

    Touhou has what may be the most amazing fan community ever.

    The games themselves are fun, and among the best of their kind out there. But where it really becomes epic is the fans. Massive amounts of fan art, fucking thousands of comics, hundreds of albums. And the vast majority of it of good quality, little of it is crap in my experience.

    RIGHT! Making the names more general! I'll actually get on that this moment.

    "Hat" is more of a stylistic choice, though. The example shown is that if you want to have Hat represent appearance, you could easily have a bunch of other design quirks--Byakuren would have a good Hat, represented by technicolor hair and floating ribbons.

    Though as always, I'm not at all averse to changing anything against my ideas if enough people think it should be that way.

    I don't know if Suika's horns really count as headWEAR... Anyway, there are a good deal of touhous lacking hats, but if you're reading this then that should be pretty clear.

    Well, as a fan myself, that's not quite true. We have or big, BIG share of shit. The difference is that many Touhou fans latch to and publicize the quality stuff and simply ignores the bad stuff, instead of the usual practice of obsessing over the bad examples, for purposes of bashing, that most communities practice. This makes bad things fade into obscurity pretty quickly.

    Checking... Yes, this is so, but 5 or 6 out of those 8 are fairly big-name touhous with particular quirks. There's also the matter that the wiki counts ribbons and such as "hats".

    Still, it is what it is unless there's more of an outcry to change it.

    Really, even in the games themselves, the games have great music. Yes, it's low-quality MIDI, but the melodies themselves are real fucking solid. It's one of the advanatges of chiptunes - you can't disguise bad music under MOAR VIOLIN, so you're forced to compose catchy shit by definition or suck. It's why Megaman games still have some of the best soundtracks ever. And it's also why when the fans then get and arrange them with instruments and vocals, you get absolutely fucking amazing.

    in case you drop back into the thread, or other are interested in learning about Gensokyo, then apart from the wiki that allready have been linked, then there's some doujinshi which essentially is adaption of a games plot.

    esamples are: Koumakyou part 1 and 2, by Tohonifu (the plot is actually that the big boss of the sixth game recreates the incident from that game to draw out Reimu and essentially perform an intervention for her sake and makes a reference to the plot in another doujin by the name Wriggle VS SDM)

    Unofficial Gensokyo Guidebook by Gaku-touhou is more like a random trivia book which explains some of the references and source material in the book, broken up by short comics involving what's covered.

    Two Scarlet Sacrements Under the Starry Sky by Flip Flops is an adaption of the plot from the sixth game,

    Hope it helps.

    There are a lot that don't, actually. And even then, most of the doujins just make minor derailments for the sake of funny, but keeping the base tone of the setting - zany antics and funny.

    But Tohonifun just turns perfectly lazy/gentle/normal characters into psychos. And as the whole "vs Yuka" series shows, they seem to be unable to actually DO any protagonist that isn't a psycho. Yukari? Psycho. Ran? Psycho. Remilia? Psycho (okay, this one is more canon-based). Reimu? Psycho with PTSD. Shou? Psycho. Byakuren? Psycho. Hell, even motherfucking Wriggle, though at least THAT one has a decent excuse and stuff.

    It just gets kind of annoying, is all.

    There's a difference between the usual "violent" that Gensokyo residents display and Tohonifun's signature "sociopath." Everything he's done with Yukari other than Yuka vs Yukari has done some off-the-wall retconning of how Ran and Yukari met, how the SDM crew met, and tons of other things. Tohonifun did well with Kaguya vs Mokou and Kaguya, they're established nutjobs; did well with Koumakyou, Reimu could theoretically snap under all the pressure she gets; did well with Wriggle vs SDM, lesser character get walked on frequently. But for Flan to be crazy before Remi locked her up for years at a time? For China to defend the vampires to the death before knowing them? For Yukari to meet Ran then leave her for years? That's nuts - totally against established history.

    The whole point of Danmaku is that touhou characters can resolve problems without killing each other. There is also the issue that Gensokyo doesn't have a legal system or government, and the closest thing they have is Reimu. So non-lethal fights are about as good as it gets.
    >> Anonymous 03/02/10(Tue)17:19 No.8365905

    I hadn't read all of Tohoifuns' work, but ya, some of them doesn't really fit too well with the canon or usual fanon portrayal, some how ever feels, atleast in my case, pretty believeable for how things could be if the light-heartedness gets reduced and adds deepths to the characters that can be fairly believeable.

    Koumakyou portray Reimu as how I can believeable see her acting after more then 10 incidents where she have been able to get a good ending and simple just want to live her lazy carefree life drinking tea, yet still have to do all her other monster killing off-screen against those who do not respect the spell-card rules despite not wanting to fight, because she is born what she is. and it does end up a happy note when it turns out that everything was a plot to make Reimu realise that she isn't alone and are more then the red-white shrine maiden.

    offcourse, since it's all doujin work, then the beauty of it is that you can pick and choice the interprintation you like the must.

    with that said, ya, Tohoifun might not be the best entry into gensokyo in hindsight, without having a rough idea of the plot and personality of the characters.

    No offense meant, but... Psychotic, murderous behaviour doesn't add depth to a character. And people like Yukari (who is both the Paradigm of Laziness, a Trickster who prefers making you look like a fool to killing you, and pretty much Gensokyo's Guardian) suddenly being all MURDER YOUKAI PRIDE SILENCE I KILL YOU is everything *but* believable.

    Let's not even get into the portrayal of Byakuren, who according to canon over the years has turned into a literal saint, and suddenly in Tohonifun she's all SUBMIT TO MY IDEA OR DIE NO WAIT ON SECOND THOUGHT DIE ANYWAY.

    Really, I liked Wriggle vs SDM because it was halfway believable, and I liked Koumakyou because you could see it if you added just a little heap of grimdark to the characters' lives. But everything else by the circle is just... well, as away from canon as is humanly possible.

    Hence why I said Tohonifun is very much not a good place to start people into Touhou.

    See, I think everyone should realize touhou's pretty dark.

    Look at EoSD. Youkai were either these half feral monsters who'd ambush you just to attack you, or intelligent being that could almost, but not quite, pass for human. Everyone threatened to eat Reimu left and right. When accused of murder, Reimu brushed it off by noting it was only one, so that was ok. Remilia responded to Sakuya's death by noting at least she got you to waste a bomb.

    It's only later we learned it was a joke, and I perosnally think ZUN toned it down because of the fanbase he started to develop. But he still lets it bleed through. Mokou vs Kaguya is nothing but nightmare fuel. Yuyuko's story is a pretty solid tragedy. And there's plenty more.

    Everyone who acts like touhou is all fun all the time just tends to ignore the evidence otherwise.

    She's a judge of the afterlife, it is her job. She's just bring proactive.

    Well, she's a god, so in terms of pure power she ranks up there. If we take Shoot the Bullet, she's quite capable of forcing a person to fight themselves.

    Second of all, her power has been described as the ability to tell black from white: the ability to separate what she sees perfectly.

    Now, look at Yukari's ability, the ability to bend and remove borders. What if Yukari fought someone who could make sure those borders stayed separated?
    >> Anonymous 03/02/10(Tue)17:47 No.8366359

    No, actually. Touhou never was horribly dark. Touhou is an interesting setting because everyone is a hair's width away from dark, where dark backstories happen, but where everything, despite the fighting, always has a happy ending and gets solved peacefully with a tea party at the end (a tea party which is also present in EoSD, by the way).

    And it happens this way, simply, because ZUN's a happy drunk, not a depressive drunk, and there isn't anyone beyond redemption in canon Gensokyo - everyone can be good.

    It has been said that the only "truly evil" character in Touhou is a tree. This theory is pretty approximately correct.

    Now, hold on a bit. The nature of Gensokyo (vaguely defined and largely fleshed out by fanon) means that it can be exactly as grimdark or happy as you want it, so I think the whole debate on whether it absolutely is so and so noblebright/grimdark is useless, even if I'm taking it as silly fun wonderland for this game.

    Understand that she is a god, but so is Tenshi.

    Also, I'm not particularly interested in getting into a touhou power level argument, as it ends up debating who can out hax who.

    That doesn't change the fact that Mokou and Kaguya will continue to murder one another for all of eternity, long as the Earth has gone, the sun has died, and nothing but the two of them exist.

    So they called a temporary truce. It won't last, not really. Nothing but hate fueled them before, when things begin to decay around them, only the hate will remain.

    (post erased and remade for horrendous typo)

    Except that then you read Inaba of the Moon, which is by the ZUN himself, and the truce seems to hold pretty damn well - Mokou and Kaguya still dislike each other, but Mokou has gone to the point of actually helping Kaguya's servants and Kaguya herself a few times, and seems to tolerate her quite well.

    Kaguya's still a dick in there, though.

    Saigyou Ayakashi. It draws humans to it with otherworldy charm, then drives those beneath it to madness and death. Yuyuko is 'guarding' the seal that keeps the tree from being able to use those powers.

    Death is a weird ass think in touhou, and I don't think killing has the same weight it does in RL.

    I mean ghosts are all over the place, some characters can go to heaven or hell whenever they feel like it, and to my understanding, and death is reversible(if unlikely).

    Well, Gensokyo will last quite a bit. and yes, when gensokyo is gone, they're both fucked. But then, so is everything else, really, as Gensokyo will probably last exactly as much as human civilization - it is fed from the fantasies of humans, after all.

    So really, by then it's not a real setting or tone concern. For that to happen, the setting and its whole mood would have to be completely destroyed and turned into another thing completely. Kind of like what happened to Forgotten Realms in 4th, only to the power of n.

    Man, here's what I like about /tg/. I get the feeling this might be only a small number of posters talking in circles, but it just seems like something like this can be discussed here seriously and not be trolled to oblivion. If this were a less tolerant board, the thread would *never* get this huge.

    It's nice that ppl are able to look past "lol animoo" and see Touhou has an interesting setting, with interesting characters and a lot to offer in terms of fantasy devices.

    I admit I hadn't read much of Tohoifuns work apart from the ones you mention as being close to the canon, Yuka versus Yukari and the one with Byakuren, but I think we pretty much agree actually.
    The portrayal of the youchrist just made me go "eh?" which is why I didn't suggested that one as opposed to Koumakyou (where Marisa even points out that Reimu is not being herself)

    with that said, then I stand corrected and take back Koumakyou as a suggested introduction into Gensokyo. I n hindsight, really knowing who and what Reimu is, helps to get the must out of that one

    Actually, we usually get trolled to hell and back. Most of /tg/ plain doesn't care about Touhou and so simply hides the threads and moves on (fa/tg/uys are smart like that), but there's a couple classic sagefags that seem to take joy in flooding every Touhou thread around.

    Touhou power levels are super hard to estimate considering:
    1. You have characters who are powerful gameplay wise (Particularly hard to dodge danmaku, etc.)
    2. You have characters who have extremely powerful abilities. (Yuyuko can kill anyone instantly, Flan can crush almost anything, Remilia can control your fate, etc.)
    3. You have characters constantly and recklessly willing to use a lot of power. (The protagonists)

    On the other hand, there are things limiting the strengths of characters, such as the Spell Card system, which some may be better at exploiting than others, or willingness to use full power. Then there's fanon as well: While Zun says Meiling is weaker than other youkai because she's "average at everything," fan speculation tends to latch onto the rather believable idea that she just sucks at danmaku. In pure freakish physical strength she could probably splatter many of the more powerful characters with her kung fu. Again, that's entirely fanon, but it at least opens the idea that some characters are stronger than they initially appear.
    >> Anonymous 03/02/10(Tue)18:15 No.8366783

    Well, it's not that she'd splatter many, but she'd be placed higher in the tiers. Why? Because a Mario-type character would undoubtedly be placed much better if she could use all her stats, instead of it being spellcard duels where the one with the biggest (Magic+Dodge) roll wins. For one, many gensokyans seem cripplingly undefended for melee...

    I had a theory around the time Immaterial and Missing Power came out.. Touhou magic is inversely proportional to breat size.. And considering Meiling had the second or third largest breasts.. and the least amount of magic, it made sense.

    Although with Yukari and Komachi always being depicted with giant tits, that kinda threw it out the window.

    Especially with Patchouli, she's supposed to have the strongest magic of anybody else in the whole verse, but due to physical weakness (Anemia, asthma, i've heard a lot of what it could be) she cant ever finish her spells.

    Touhou definition of "beat the shit out of" is guaranteed to be non-fatal, due to the spellcard system that reimu shoves down their throats like a bad GM's self-insert character.

    Eh... She lives in Heaven, and has control over the earth. In any event, to become a celestial that ascends to heaven you have to beat a shinigami which are gods so it is fair to place them at the same level.

    Which really, is leads to the point that merely being a god isn't a direct sign of power. Touhou follows Shinto beliefs about gods, and while gods are often powerful, they aren't always and more importantly, it is possible for a non-god to surpass a god(often becoming divine in the process, but not always).
