My attempts to clear up misconceptions.

Zun, the god of Touhou and the creator of the game pretty much. The one sole person. So long story short, he’s been dating a woman for a long time and he already got married with her about 6 months prior to this date. He’s having the wedding ceremony to seal the deal on Reitaisai 9, which means he won’t be showing up to that event which also means no Touhou demo either. From what I heard, he didn’t seem to intend to make it on the same date of Reitaisai where in actuality he chose that date, and Reitaisai seemed to be happened to be hosted on the same date later. And yes, you really don’t want to post pone a wedding ceremony unless your wife says yes, but even that’s a strange thing to ask.

A lot of people say that this is the end of Touhou. Its not. Touhou is eternal, Zun has made no announcements of saying he’ll be quitting the project, nor will Touhou be going to shit either. The fans will always be fans. Oh, and here’s another thing. His wife helped program Touhou games, starting from IN, Imperishable Night Touhou 8. What now.

Its surprising though, I wonder how things will turn out.

70$ dollar budget.

I’m on a 70$ budget, I ask you guys for a request. I can buy one thing, from ebay or Troll and Toad or anything else and I’m not sure what to buy. Last time I bought a Touhou poster, it looks nice and I’m happy with my cheap but beautiful poster. I’m in a spending mood again seeing how I’ve been saving a bit, but I’m not sure what I should buy. I know some people say I shouldn’t spend money on anything except necessities, but living life for the sake of living is a sin in itself. Therefore, time to find some nice luxuries.

I don’t really know what I want to buy though, I’d like it if it was on the cheap side. Although I do say a 70$ budget, unless its a truly good deal I probably won’t spend 70$. I saw a maid outfit on ebay for 25$, but do you honestly expect me to wear something like that? Pfft. Okay you guys would but that’s another issue.

Or maybe I should just save up and see what I can buy later? I don’t know, I need some suggestions. If I could carry it around or wear it, all the better. < Will be amazed if I get a single reply.

Alone on Christmas

Today’s Christmas! What’s that? Feb 27th you say? Well, let’s just pretend its Christmas. So what were you doing home alone during Christmas? Shouldn’t you been out with your friends or going to parties or having fun with family maybe rather then staying on Pojo or reading Marisacache? The answer is no. Otaku life is centered around the internet! Be on it 24/7. Shut out your doors, lock your rooms but if someone extends their arm wanting to be your friend you should really take it. Like seriously, if their that persistent then it has to mean something. It might not be fun at first, but you won’t regret it! Most of the time.

And so, 22$ trial decks, in Vanguard. When will it finally become cheaper. Maybe I should just order some on ebay and then we’ll all be happy then. But then there lies the problem of finding someone to play with. Ah, why can’t I just shoot myself and go to Gensokyo. I’d probably re-incarnate if I don’t go to the Netherworld though.

Even then there’s no promise I’d been in Gensokyo too, or retain my old memories. If I could retain my old memories that’d be nice… Yes, today is a lazy post day because I have homework to not do.

Want to know the rest? PM me or google it. It’s easy to find after all.

You know, Alice Margatroid hasn’t done much this past year and yet she’s at the 2nd? That’s almost as surprising as Yuuka being 3rd last year. But I’m not complaining, Alice is one of my most favorite characters. Although the actual surprising part is that she got the #1 most marked. Even surpassing Reimu.

Sanae didn’t do as well as I thought, it’s a shame really. Marisa is 5th between the Scarlet Sisters who are high as usual. Sakuay just got pressed down to 3rd, which is pretty good.

Now looking at TD characters, it looks like only one character made it to the top 25. Mononobe no Futo, who is the 5th stage boss of Ten Desires.

Nothing seems too unusual about this though. It does raise some questions if popularity polls mean anything at all though.

You guys know I always take requests if you want a certain day to contain a certain post you know?

Oh, but don’t forget that the 9th popularity poll is for the English / Non Japan community. The rest of the Ten Desires group is way down in the polls. I’ve been talking to people and they seemingly been taking a while to warm up to the characters, but I guess that’s only natural.

————————————————————————————————-

Time to pick up a few albums of C78. This is my recommendation.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xq4_bvyOGrs&feature=related

Yes, it’s a song not a album. I feel like this song has a really beautiful melody and although people aren’t always fond of vocals with Touhou music I’m sure most people will like this.

I also found myself getting more used too Screamo music. Although I always prefer music without it, I don’t really mind anymore. I guess that’s a + for Foreground Eclipse. You know your doing it right if I don’t end up minding.

Tri Fox – Character Profile

A school teacher and a cook as well. Being a school teacher she can be quite strict, but usually over-looks most things. Having a obsession with animals, she often takes care of them in private. Hardly ever the center of attention she’s usually quiet at times and tends to pop up out of no where from time to time. She’s Joenen’s older sister despite them not looking similar.

Along with being nimble, her combat ability nearly unrivaled. Being able to control the earth around her to her will and materialize nearby objects into her hand makes her suitable to fighting in nearly every environment.

Stubborn and Blunt, most people end up not liking her at first. But she helps everyone out without even being asked. Fainting a few times per week due to over-work, her sister pleads her to take it easy once and a while.

Yuri in Touhou

I like this picture. Can anyone remind me what doujin this is from? Well, at any rate Touhou as a mostly all female cast. Outside of fanon material, all canon games don’t contain a single male character. Maybe by mention, but you don’t actually see any. Of course, back during IN’s release there was a lot of talk about Wriggle maybe being a guy until ZUN said otherwise.

The few guys there are contain the ever popular Rinnosuke and less known ones such as Youki and such.

However, seeing how there’s a all female cast, a lot of fanon materials have been prone to depicting everyone in Gensokyo as gay in some way. Of course, in terms of Touhou people don’t consider this strange, it’s actually really cute.

However, sad to say there’s no actual canon evidence to support any kind of love relationships between any characters. Marisa and Reimu might be the closest seeing how their friends who always try to resolve the incidents but that’s about as close as they get.

And then in Fanon you get completely strange pairings, Genji x Zombie Fairy. Okay, that’s a exaggeration but I wouldn’t mind reading about that.

Alarm is going off, and I’m at the 200 word count. Until next time.

My votes for 9th Popularity Poll

Is anyone up for a match of Hisoutensoku? It’s been a long time since I practiced.

 

Tenshi (2)
Yuuka
Rumia
Alice
Reimu

It was very hard to pick just 5. However, it was undeniably easy to pick my marked one. Tenshi, it had to be Tenshi. Not to mention I personally seemingly became more of a masochist myself, but that’s another story.

 

Tenshi, cute and somewhat flat chested but enough to tell that its actually a girl despite the fact that she’s a Touhou character. My main in Hisoutensoku and SWR and containing my favorite 3 cost spell card. With long blue hair and a beautiful outfit, I just had to pick Tenshi this time.

Yuuka, she’s always been one of my favorites. Even though I pretty much love all of them. Either her kind caring fanon side or her hint hint, sadistic fanon/canon side. They all show to make a entertaining and hilarious character that I wish I could get more of. The best part is if she’s in a romance and then I can’t wait to find out what happens next when artists draw her.

Rumia, So~ nanoka~. Darkness youkai, although not many people favorites because Stage 1 bosses are usually ignored unless the play some kind of major part. Playful and sometimes depicted as childish. Her serious side, EX-side, intelligent side, or basically Trollololol side, I love them all.

Alice, AlixMari / MarixAli is and will always be the best pairing for me. It’s a classic the two magicians being together. It’s a shame its nothing canon for the most they did was get involved with each other in a multitude of games such as PCB, IaMP, IN, SWR and so on. I haven’t seen many of this pairing too much lately, its a shame. I’d love to see Alice try to express her love more later though.

Reimu, always the first and the main character. Poverty or Troll Reimu from Shino’s perspective. Always the center of attention and seemingly the most saddened one out of all of them if you think about what she has to go though.

There was many who I easily considered, such as Koishi and Marisa. But I sadly can’t fit all of them in my vote. So maybe next time.

Did you vote for the 9th popularity poll?

Have you guys done your duty and voted in the 9th Touhou Popularity Polls? I’m pretty sure it closes voting by Friday, Eastern U.S time. these popularity polls are purely western voters though, I think or am I confusing it with something else. Well either way, last time in our 8th popularity polls the top 5 were like this.

#1 Reimu Hakurei

No surprise there, she is the main character after all.

#2 Sakuya Izayoi

She always scores high along with Reimu.

#3 Yuuka Kazami

One of my favorite characters, although I was surprised she scored so high. Her x Wriggle = So cute.

#4 Remilia Scarlet

Always has been popular and has been charismatic.

#5 Marisa Kirisame

I think she was 3rd place last time, she dropped to 5th.

 

Regarding music, Remilia’s theme has always been in first. I can’t help but feel like Sanae will be scoring higher in the rankings perhaps she’ll make 2nd or 3rd. I hope. Last time she made 6th.

The voting goes like this. A voter submits his/her e-mail address and votes for 5 characters, and marks one. The marked character gets 2 points while the other 4 gets one points. The votes are counted and you should know the rest. Its submitted and its nice to see how the characters are rated.
