Is this going to be the first battle with more than like four people in it? That's going to be interesting.

How hard is it to not kill the boss first? I suppose weathering her attacks is kind of a pain but it seems like that's not something you can accidentally do.

Suika fell victim to IaMP not being important enough to design a cool boss fight around.

Look, let's be honest here. Suika would last one, maybe two, rounds of being a cool boss fight before she just said gently caress it and brawled with everyone.

I'd think there would be more long-range attacks considering it's Touhou. But I suppose getting frozen in an arbitrary formation is going to be bad for your planning.

The attack is based on Rampage Ghost, but that attack doesn't actually have a theme so we had to choose something else.

And you didn't just call it Rampage Doofy Ghost?

Anyway, who does the flirty part? Or is that more of an Excellen thing?

Hey, at least this time when protagonist teams are fighting each other, most of them treat it like just a grand day out. And Touhou's at its best when all the touhous are clowning off all the other touhous.

Scant consolation since it doesn't make all that unique dialogue and easier to get, but still.

Well, thanks for the folklore lesson. I wasn't expecting all the impossible tasks to actually be impossible -- usually some fool from the countryside manages to team up with a magic man in the woods and pull off at least one or two.
