Unfortunately it's hard to find a specific video because a bunch of the names are in Japanese and a bunch have been lost to the internet. I just remember the Ichirin Burning Down The House video.

Oh wait, I found his Nico: https://www.nicovideo.jp/user/45465

This is probably it: https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm10055958

Yes that's the one exactly, thank you

A lot more surreal than I thought, but definitely it

Fantasic Danmaku Festival Part II is a extremely pretty sort of remake of Perfect Cherry Blossom, and is worth the buy for the visual/audio experience alone, but it's pretty solid as a shump.


Thanks for this recommendation, I bought in for the pretty bullet patterns and got my money's worth from stage 6. I'm not sure how much of it is me being rusty vs. playing a whole new game with new bullet patterns to learn, but there's a pretty significant jump from Easy to Normal in this one, and I haven't gotten past stage 3 without using continues on it yet.

The FDF games are like, cool, but they take too long, and I find myself particularly annoyed at the changes made vs. the original games. They are gorgeous, though.
please get your original character bleimu out of here

They do some really creative stuff, especially in the bonus spellcards you can access from the main menu. Each boss gets around 5 unique attacks that are more in line with the ones from the decimal numbered side games. A particular favorite of mine is one that starts normally then up and creates a second hit box that orbits around you.

And yeah Rumia maybe an irrelevant minor character but deleting her for OC notRumia felt weird. I do like stuff like jack o' lantern themed Koakuma and outer god themed Yukari though.

They’re still making stuff.

There’s also Swing Holic if you want another jazz recommendation

Active NEETs also streams live jazz via youtube every Thursday at 8-10 PM Japan time. Not purely Touhou stuff but a good listen.

Why does 80 percent of the character art in the games look terrible? I know ZUN did everything but honestly, couldn’t he have just contracted that part out to someone else?

You take that back. ZUN's art is a treasure and I don't think I'd like Touhou as much as I do if it contracted to someone "better"

I sincerely doubt ZUN's gonna make the series protagonist straight at this point, and that's on top of his seeming lack of interest in writing romance or romantic comedy.
