I play on Normal because I started with EoSD, and things like EoSD Easy Mode will train you to never trust easy modes again.

I have never 1CC'd a single game. Well, except for the fighters. I'm a fair bit better at twitch reflexes than micrododging.

Ultra modes are real poorly balanced. Not much thought went in to them, and in some cases they're debatably easier than the parent game (PCB for instance).

No, the real smug person challenge is 90FPS.

Well, it's staged in the sense that there's just this video that the creator (Yuke) uploaded himself, but I have this memory like he released at least some of his previous creations as actual games.

You can type it into Google Translate and have it read it out to you to get a general idea.

Edit: Marisa appears to be speaking in a dialect that Google Translate doesn't quite understand though.

Nobody really speaks Finnish the same way it's written, which causes a lot of problems for translating software. Google translate seems to know some colloquial Finnish, but regional variants are a bit too much for it. Whoever is translating those comics is doing a rather good job at getting the tone and meaning across, though.

Yeah, it's pretty great. I'm some 600 comics in now.

Personally I'm on a Bomber Grape rush. "I've been surrounded by raging lesbians! The room is ripe with the stench of bitches" is probably one of the greatest lines of touhou doujin dialogue, next to Mokou's sickening burns in the setz comics.

You can search touhou pv on YouTube and come up with a few of them. The ones you've mentioned are good ones, but there's others too, (kinda) like this one for Tewi:

I dunno if you meant to say "juxtopose" since that would mean a video with a contrasting meaning to the song, but in case that's what you did mean...

I couldn't find a translated version but rest assured that the song is not about a giant robot battle between Sanae and Alice.

To be fair though, unrequited love is like the #1 theme for music everywhere. As part of my studies I listened to music from minority languages all around the world, they were almost always on that subject. The video I posted above, that's what the song is about as well.

As for the challenge, I'd say it's too easy, my entire music bookmark list on Nico is full of those. But I have gathered over time that those are not the Touhou music videos people in this thread like. You guys seem to like serious ones, so of course they are all weepy and sad.

Do you just ignore the numerous PVs that don't fit that mold?

Well, I figure contrast can be anything from "is different in kind from..." to "is revealing of..." I just meant any sort of video where you had the animation paired with the song, thank you and Onean though for the links.

In fairness the songs that wind up in the "Related Videos" tab in Youtube do tend to fit the mold, it takes some luck or digging to find other kinds in my experience, and somewhat depends on the character as well.

Aya Shameimaru's theme vocals I've found so far have always been fast and upbeat, Flandre's likes to switch between creepy and murderous, Kogosa from Western to Jazz seems to have an undercurrent of something whimsically melancholic about it. There's always exceptions and they're great, but the search algorithm does seem to have a bias unless your specific.

e: Picking Cirno's Math class as a non-emo example is cheating.

Though I love some me some Tomboyish Girl in Love arranges that are slow and lovely.
