The Gensou Taisen games might be hard to find nowadays. Iíd suggest the used doujin games shops like Suruga-ya and Mandarake. Akiba-Hobby should also have the PC-98 OSTs.

Yeah, this was at a Mandarake. I've still got others to go to so I'm hopeful!

Fantastic Danmaku Festival part 2 is out on stream now. English version isn't for another week or two, but for now you can still shoot through the game no problems. It's absolutely fantastic, basically PCB++, and well worth the buy for the asking price.

Well, I closed auditions and chose my cast.

I'd link like 6 different tweets about it, but here's a tumblr post about it. I got a really, really good cast by the end of this - I counted, I had exactly 80 people audition, and received over 220 total takes. Waaay bigger, and way better of a response than I expected.

Pretty good spread of voices, I'm looking forward to this! Your selections for Miko and Kanako in particular really stick out as perfect.
Have fun directing them

e: Also thank you for paying your voice actors

I've heard 2 people say this game is really good, but I heard a few people say FDF1 had some serious issues with its design (I still liked it). Is FDF2 actually a huge improvement in terms of pattern design or are these just different people?

I mean I bought it and I'll play it and at least 1cc on normal cause I'm at the point in my life where I'm doing that with all the high profile Touhou shmup releases but just wondering. I unfortunately haven't gotten around to it because I've been tied up with other poo poo this week.

uuhhh i've gone through both and 2 just seems like the team from 1 just improved, really? But it's hard to tell. (Give hollow song of birds a try if you haven't if you like the shumps as a side note for what i've played recently, it's high quality and free)

FDF2 has some really, REALLY good patterns though. About the only boss I'm kind of meh on is stage 5 and she's still good, just a bit same-y. Stage 6 is probably one of the best, if not the best stage I've played in a danmaku shump so there's that.

More details about Touhou Cannonball (the upcoming mobile game) were released today, including more of the VA cast.

Remilia: Yukari Tamura
Youmu: Azumi Waki
Yuyuko: Ai Kayano
Yukari: Yukana
Wriggle: Hitomi Sasaki
Reisen: Azusa Tadokoro
Kagerou: Shu Uchida
Aunn: Tomori Kusunoki

This is in addition to Reimu as Akari Kitoh and Marisa as Minami Iinuma announced before. Since they said they'd try to have every character in the game, I guess everyone will have a VA (of matching fame).

↓ They have to reveal Unzan first.

Yuyuko is a lot better than Remilia in FDF1, I like it.

Ran sucks, I especially hate the massive loving survival card at the end where it's not even immediately clear what the different colors of tiles mean.

The game is way closer to a remake of PCB than FDF1 was a remake of EoSD, which is funny because I got scolded by someone for calling it a PCB remake before playing it. Oh also it's a lot harder than HSoB on lower difficulties at least, continued several times on my first try and haven't tried again but watched some lunatic runs. Supposedly it's not that bad on lunatic compared to other games, where HSoB takes a sudden difficulty spike on lunatic?

are the two characters on the right hand side supposed to be people from other franchises?

I think the one on the left is supposed to be saber from fate stay night (which, now that I think about it, makes her appearance quite relevant) but I donít recognize the person to her right.

Oh go figure. I remember reading the main transcripts of the actual symposium but of the articles, I only remembered the other hermit's article, the bucket midboss & I think something of Yukari. There's a lot more of these than I thought there were.

Turns out Momiji got one too,! https://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Symp...ru_Newspaper_11

Seems like it just uses her as a spring board to talk about the dangers of kappas and how to handle them like this bit

quote:

Kappa don't usually make contact with others of their own accord, but it is dangerous to go near their hideout. They will drown you with this ability of water manipulation.

But the part about her specifically is just she's kind of timid and haughty when she cant run away

quote:

Perhaps because of her timidness, she tends to run away when approached by humans or youkai if she is alone. She acts bright and cheerful while in her circle of friends, but when she alone is unable to flee, she adopts a haughty attitude. Deep in her heart she believes she is superior to humans and other youkai, and it is obvious that she is doing her best to keep the idea, standing against the fact.
