Additionally, thanks for all your recommendations for touhou literature and games, everyone! There is a TON of things. Now I only have one more question/recommendation request: Taking into account the massive amount of doujin music touhou has inspired, is there any good Touhou Metal?
You should check my post on the first page of the thread, I've been organizing and posting touhou music collections for a while now. There's quite a bit of good to decent metal in there too.

Joking aside I thought LoLK was a stunningly awesome game on basically every front
I'm glad people enjoy the games and I like seeing videos of them as well but anything past Gradius levels of shooter is a big ol' nope for me no matter how good they are.

I hear that despite it being a mobile game, there are no gacha components (since it is just a boardgame translation) which is nice

I feel that Zun would be the kind of guy who would shut down paid gacha components in any doujin stuff because of the predatory nature of it (so the official games are unlikely to have it either)
Zun has some backwards-rear end views on some newer methods of game release methods and localization, but I am glad he is a smart boy who is not a fan of gacha scumbag bullshit.

I can't remember where I heard it but I thought ZUN just really liked the whole doujin scene, like he just enjoyed it being a thing sold at cons at basically the same level as all the fan works that were made off of it. And just never really wanting to have his works sold through "offical" sources or anything, even though he'd definitely make more from it. But then again from what I understand his manga have been sold from legitimate publications and everything for ages, so maybe if he did think that way it was several years ago.
There are plenty of methods to disseminate indie things without being "corporate" or whatever idea he's got in his head that makes it difficult to acquire his works through normal means outside japan. And he has remarked on localizations that he doesn't feel comfortable with having others interpret his words in other ways, or something like that.

Putting his stuff on steam is a decent first step, but not letting them be officially translated by professional translation groups is a dumb blockheaded thing

Reimu being possible in smash makes 2018 / 2019 brighter imo
Sans Undertale is probably more of a possibility than reimu

undertale outsold Dragon Quest 11 on PSN in Japan so it's definitely known there and with the switch port it's totally possible

or Papyrus as a playable character, Sans assist trophy where he breaks the game with his moves, or Annoying Dog assist trophy where he absolutely avoids damaging everyone, dodging them as hard as possible before flying offscreen(stealing a smash ball if one's around)

Got a link? Sounds amusing. Also, it rules that Toby got to meet an idol of his due to his success, reminds me of this classic of his

toby is really good at music(also humor) even when doing it on the fly

That is so loving adorable omfg

ZUN notes that when he visited America everyone seemed to be 2-3 times bigger than him, but Toby is scrawny, just like him.
And

quote:

In high school Toby made a piano arrangement of Necrofantasia by ear and played it for his church summer camp, receiving a standing ovation. ZUN response is more or less “your church let you play something called Necrofantasia?!”
Had me guffawing

Thanks for doing those, they're great. It's really fascinating how alienated from the internet scene ZUN is, I always took it to be obstinate, set in stone beliefs on his end, but this interview makes it seem more like he's incapable of comprehending the vastness of a fandom despite having one of the largest indie fandoms in existence. The English translation bit really stood out, like of course people would want to understand things in their own language. I think he's probably more thinking about, well, [UNTRANSLATEABLE JAPANESE IDIOMS] but it's pretty doable to find a substitute for most things to make it work. The English translation fan patches got everything across fine, right? Interesting that he seems to think that sort of thing is sort of sacrilegious, instead of thinking "man, those folks must REALLY love those works to put that effort in!"

So when Zun said that Reimu was alone in her heart, isn't that kind of a red flag for trauma? Where are the therapists in Gensoukyo?

Sakuya is in a LOT of memes and fangames, most notably that castlevania one. As far as general forward facing touhou characters, she's very prominent to people unfamiliar with the franchise.
