On the other hand, Reimu's hair is pretty terrible and her sleeves almost fully cover her arm. One step forward, two back.

Sakuya is maid Dio Brando, but with a much better personality. This is the only good theory because of dumb reasons.

I think the "reasoning" behind that was 'silver hair' + 'something ZUN said about Sakuya and Eirin when he was more drunk than usual'. Oh, and because her first boss song had the word "Luna(r)" in it.

Which is to say, about as much reasoning as some of the more batshit theories out there.

Meidio Brando is the correct response forever, though. She's just not a vampire because ZUN thought it'd be funny to have a human working for one.

The reasoning is that Eirin's profile says she was surprised to see Sakuya. Everything else from there is fan extrapolation.

EDIT: And by extrapolation, I mean reading waaaay too far into things.

People just latched on to it because beyond the question of how a lunarian would end up as a maid for a vampire, it's a neat explanation tying together the scant info there is on her. How she's got weird unexplained powers despite not being from Gensokyo, Eirin and Sakuya knowing of each other (of course, IN never took it further than having Sakuya know that Eirin/Kaguya were from the moon, and Eirin recognizing her), passing similarity in hair/eye-colors to lunarians (other than Kaguya), etc. Don't subscribe to it myself, but hardly the most out-there theory.

Either way, knives own, so I will look forward to TH14.

Fallen Rib

I'm happy I'll be able to play as Sakuya too. I usually switched between her and Reimu in PCB, and I actually enjoyed using her in IN. I've never really paid attention to the fandom beyond the games, though, so I'm not really following this Lunarian talk. When I hear Lunarian, all I think of is FuSoYa from FFIV.

Fan art of mystery boss has already been made. Touhou fan works fast!

Reimu's arms go down to her calves

Any speculation if there be any integration plot-wise with the new fighting game? Does ZUN write the plots for both? Since one is entrenched firmly in the religion arc while the other is a step away from it, I'm wondering if he will try to limit the total number of new characters.

In the wrong hands, the stapler is a deadly weapon.


I wouldn't have minded seeing a different new playable character, like Youmu in Ten Desires, but I liked playing as Sakuya when she showed up, so what the heck.

I also think ZUN's gotten relatively decent with his art lately, even if Reimu is wearing pillowcases on her arms in that first pic.

None of the other games ever tied in with the fighting games. Touhou 14 probably doesn't have anything to do with 13.5. If I recall correctly, MoF and SWR came out around the same time as each other and that didn't stop MoF from having 7 new characters and only 1 reoccurring.

Maybe I'm just a little miffed about Sanae not being in the new game. She went from one of my least liked characters from MoF to one of my favorites in UFO and TD. So common sense be damned.

I'd actually buy that, regardless of if ZUN or a Touhou dojin circle made it. HRTP was a lot better than people give it credit for, even though it's rapidly approaching the age where it, itself, is old enough to drink.
