I noticed and I sent you a message back about it. I have to ask this has anyone seen the gameplay for the Castlevania Touhou game version at all. I mean for some reason I kind of want to play it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d99yK1w5IKI

I mean it loos like a fun game to play since it's something like a Castlevania telling of what happened in the SDM for the first time... sort of.

I wouldn't recomend trying to play any of the shooter Touhou games, but maybe the fighting versions, or the fan made versions while you're in that kind of state if you ask me.

Also, Jun-san have you been busy or something since I haven't gotten that PM as of yet though.

Fighting versions of touhou?
Those words made me break away from my silent monitoring of this thread.
Could you expand on that a bit pretty-please, Kid-Wolf?


Akhem... and, well if JunMisugi doesn't manage to get that specific PM to you.. I can always PM you myself

There are 3 fighting games in the Official Touhou games:

th7.5 = Imaterial & Missing Power: Introduces Suika and how she becomes a resident of the Hakurei shrine.

th10.5 = Scarlett Weather Rhapsody: Introduces Iku and Tenshi, and how she wanted to play "incident resovling" with the residents of Gensokyo. Also, Suika moves to the home of the Celestials at this point.

th12.3 = Unthinkable Natural Law. Gives the excuse to have Sanae, China er I mean Meling, and the Baka Fairy Cirno to have a storyline for a fighting game.

Yeah, there's a story mode like typical fighters in which they have unique attacks that you have to beat, and versus. I'm not too much of a fan of it because I was spoiled with Soul Calibur but theres some enjoyment available there. It includes online versus which is kinda required if you get good and want difficult play, because the AI is fail outside of scripted spell cards in story mode. Story mode is nice though, each character has their own ending which typically turn out comical if you understand the touhouverse already.

7.5 is motly forgotten in versus play because the gamplay was changed pretty drastically between 7.5 and 10.5, and all the chars from 7.5 are in 10.5. 12.3 is a stand-alone expansion to 10.5 where you can play all 10.5 characters as long as both are installed.

Here's some vids:

A good versus between Remilia and Reisen with funny commentary

A slower paced close online vs battle between Reimu and Marisa

10.5 Story mode final stage (normal) as Sakuya

BTW, I mainly play Remilia & Marisa.

Once again there is some life once more to the Lunasa and Merlin lists. granted there wasn't much, but at least it shows that they had the time to do something about the playlist now.

From the Lunasa List:

From the Merlin Playlist:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUWmuZ3WvWw

As for the fighting game I usually pick the little Baka Fairy, Okuu, or Meling at times. Other times I just pull out a typical rivalry fight against certain characters, and depending on who I've fought I tend to pull up a revenge match. To give an example of what I mean if I win against Marisa I usually have alice fight right after that match sometimes. So I kind of use a bit of the relation chart to figure out what fight would be worth trying and also unleashing the heavy duity spell cards. The prime examples of those would be Yukari's Train attack, and Reimu's Spell Card dubbed as "Hax Sign: You Just F'ing Lose".

Yes, Fantasy Heaven is pure BS. Give it a whirl in IN if you are a masochist. As an update for the shooters, I gave up on EX Marisa for a bit but beat SA on normal and hard, UFO on normal, MoF on hard, and beat Suwako. SA isn't really that difficult if you learn the stages and cards, you just have to realize you can't dive for the POC like you can in the other games. Just use grazing to pull all the items to you so you don't need to.

Some random vids I don't think have made their way into this thread:

IOSYS - Miracle∞Hinacle FULL english subs (surprised this hasn't shown up, Hina is win)

【Touhou PV】The Song of a Broken Youkai that Loves People【東方】*FULL ver.*

幻想万華鏡 ~The Memories of Phantasm~【東方】 (its only in the anime thread)

IOSYS - Artificial Children (full song and PV) with English subtitles

Alice→Dere / アリス→デレ【PV風】 [ENGLISH]

edit: oh dear god, someone is pseudo-animating Maid's Day. They're pretty good too, awesome. IT gets a lot more cohesive once they reach the beach sequence around video 28. The SFX they use for Patchy just kills me.

you know out of boredom I kind of ran into a doujin series called Yukari vs Ran. Pretty much long story short it's mostly about the time Yukari and Ran first met, to the beginnings of Gensokyo. Quite an interesting read if you ask me.

Speaking of doujins it seems that Kougasa is really consdiered the New Youkai Moe. A title that was originally Yuuka's of course. I kind of find it rather ironic that the title of Youkai Moe went from one umbrella wielding girl to another.

Pretty much all the stage 2 bosses in the windows series, aside from Hina, are pretty moe IMO. I personally like Mystia the most out of the moe touhou girls. She's pretty, both her themes are awesome, and she gets overly mistreated by the fanbase. Yuyuko, back off!

You know, Index is pretty similar to fanon Yuyuko. Every time I watch Index I end up thinking of the ghost in the eating scenes. In another world, I'm sure they'd be the best of friends.

As for Yuuka, I dunno about that, she's a huge sadist among most of the fans. I think Chen held the title for a long time.

Actually I think Chen was more along the line of adorableness due to the fact of Ran stating the ever so famous line, "Cheeeeen." The same can be said for Orin, but that's more along the line of limp-wristed rage with that there.


As for Mystia I pretty much thought of her as a Youkai Idol with her singing and whatnot. I mean there was one doujin that had Mystia facing off against Wriggle in a contest to see who was a cuter girl and whatnot. The doujin's title is known as Goth Mystia vs Princess Wriggle, it's pretty much in reality Rinouske and Reimu making a wager on which girl is better looking.

In any case I kind of wonder what 13 is going to be about now. In any case there is a lot of possibilities still since the established girls can still be used in some way here.

Well it seems that ChaosAngel is working on reuploading the Lunasa list, but it look slike he decided to post something fairly interesting if you ask me.

Good ol' Eirin one of the few reasons why IN is interesting to play none the less.

Also it seems that the Merlin List finally hit it's 200th mark. The up side he posted a good song for it, but the down side is he kind of went overboard by doing the Star Wars intro idea. So with that in mind I'll post up both versions since he even mentioned it as well. From what I've been told this is actually Zun's theme music which if you've seen the EWI version it shows off Mary and Renko fairly well might I add. although the pic he used and how he did it was extrodinary that it somewhat makes up for his attempt of doing something different here.


東方 Touhou Unplugged/Classic 200:(on the list.) (The actual song starts at around the 2:19-2:20 mark)

*edit*

It almost feels like I'm on some kind of an Eirin kick here but I found another version of her boss song that seemed prety good to listen to.

1970 on that album is nasty. I had it run across my headphones today with phone on shuffle, it always gets me pumped up.

Here's some info on the Touhou OVA, courtesy of Lunatic Red (and pointed out by members at Doujinstyle):


QUOTE Alright. Here's a quick sum-up of the anime some of us have been waiting for.

I am basing this on a review that I found on the net.

The animation is very well done and they manage to depict danmaku in an epic way. The environments are supposedly dark and twisted, filled with ruins and lots of debris for the characters to go "kyuu" on, so to speak. While the reviewer claims to not be able to put his finger on some of the spells used by the girls, it is still quite apparent that we'll be seeing some recognizable patterns.

Next up is the story, and here is where I believe the anime will lose most peoples' interest. It is a 10 minutes short, just like the other Anime Tenchou crossovers. While it is this short, the reviewer states that the story is actually quite good. I can't tell if this is simply his fanboy-ism speaking though. He also states that the fact of it being a crossover has no negative impact on the anime. The Anime Tenchou characters blend well with the Touhou characters and the audience gets what they want: Danmaku goodness~

Sorry to disappoint any of you who had your fingers crossed for a sudden appearance of your favorite girl, but the Touhou characters are pretty much limited to those who appear on the comercial poster. While I didn't read the part about the story (anti-spoiler), I did manage to pick out that it revolves around Reimu and Flandre for the most part. Reimu being the protagonist and Flandre being the antagonist, if you can even categorize them as such.

Characters that make appearances: Reimu, Flandre, Marisa, Yukari and Ran.

Characters that make minor appearances: Rumia, Wriggle, Mystia, Satori, Koishi, Suika, Murasa, Remilia, Patchouli and Sakuya.

As for the music. It seems like they did what many of us had hoped for (I know I did at least). They rearranged the original music! Woop the freaking doo!

Voice acting... the icing on the cake... is apparently not so good. The reviewer wasn't disgusted by it, but said that it was mediocre at best, lacking emotions and personality.

In the end, it seems he enjoyed it even after all of its flaws. Will the western fanbase do the same I wonder?

Feel free to dissect this review further as I only picked out the pieces of information I felt to be relevant. If you are going to translate the story part of the review, please post it in spoiler tags. Thanks.



It looks like it may be a while till it gets out since it was only shown like a movie, hopefully they'll put a disc out at C79 or something.



Oh, and lol, have you ever seen this? Magnificent work, wish I knew about this when I was learning characters:

Of first off I need to ask you about getting me that album if possible since that one was a good redition of Voayage 1970 of course. The songs alone actually did make IN fun to play and re-play. Not only that but it is the only one that unlocks Extra Mode when you play it on easy.


As for the Touhou short that it's probably being called as of now I still would like ot see that just for the heck of it even if it's only a 10 minute short. Besides how well they do that might spark the insane idea of going all out for an anime series, but time will tell if it comes down to it. Also, you should repost that in the anime thread. If not I'll post it for you sometime later on then.


Also it seems the Gensokyo Chart has been updated to it's current status. Due to the fact that things happened in 12.8 with Sanae and the Fairy Trio moving to bother the miko even more than usual.

Speaking of SBaND since it's finished and the new set for them just started it would seem that people still like how the Trio are interacting with the characters when there is no incident going on at the time.

Speaking of incidents I've seen a few pics of Cirno dressed up as Reimu but sporting her colors instead. This makes me wonder if she ever does help out at the shrine that she'll be the first fairy to actually go out an resolve incidents like both the miko(s) and witch.


Also, Flan needs more love on this thread now:

Doujinstyle.com also has a huge music link archive that contains a large amount of the music in that torrent. Its where I find out about pretty much everything I post here.

I found U.N.Owen with quite funny lyrics (sung in english). The lyrics are in the video notes:

Ok with that you've forced my hand since you've posted so pics of Kiene in her Ex- form. If I didn't know any better you really like her when she's in her half werecow form I'll bet.



*sigh* if only Momiji was actually playable in SWR or in any fighting Touhou game. Well a guy can dream.


Also a few more pics as well.



That should be enough for now.

As for the Lunasa List how about a double shot of Youmu for you guys.

Well out of my boredom I managed to find a good quality and supprsingly subbed version of the little oni's song Tsurupettan.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xX050NcDNAU&feature=related

In any case I'm guessing the Winter Comiket is going to be rather interesting. I mean I wonder how well the turnout for Touhou related items will be shown off. In any case I still want to see that 10 minute short because ufotable, which is an actual legitamate anime studio, actually did something. Usually when ufotable does something it ends up being done rather well if you ask me.
