Not only that idiot is a complete fucking moron, he's also totally oblivious to basic English and unable to understand that you don't say "more pure". You say "purer". That's an idiot for you, unable to support his flawless argument with decent language, and he'll probably call you a grammar watchdog if you try to point it out, because morons like that are always right, and can't be wrong and if you disagree with them, you're obviously a faggot/space nazi/douchebag/fucker.

It bugs me when Konngara is depicted as an oni, and especially when she's shown as one of the four devas.

>Actually, that's utter bullshit fanon. Hong Meiling is never seen sleeping in Touhou 6: Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. She's an attentive and well-trained guard who happens to be awful at ranged combat and loses to the intruders. The reason she got this mean-spirited designation was because of her red hair, blue eyes and the Chinese symbol for "Dragon" on her beret's star. Why, you ask, would that mean she's lazy? Because she's CHINESE. And it's a popular Japanese stereotype that all Chinese people are useless and lazy. No, seriously. Meiling gets shat upon because of good ol' fashioned RACISM.
No. 14177
Seriously. That's all I have to say.
The moonhoneys are called moonbitches bacause 3 idiots are thinking that SSiB is a doujin rather than a real manga, but if you dare call Meiling China and draw her as constantly sleeping, then you're racist?

Drawing doujins where female characters are raped and mindbroke is kind of sexist, I can understand that. But Meiling is "hated" because she's chinese?

>She is commonly referred to as the "lazy guardian" of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, though whether this stems from her actual personality or from the nickname "China" is unknown. Many Japanese people complain about the reliability and quality of products manufactured in China. There are many fanfics that depict an enraged Sakuya behind a sleeping Meiling in front of the gates to the Mansion. The implication is that she has the "Chinese" quality of "Shinrai no Chuugoku" (信頼の中国, which translates to Reliable China), with much intended sarcasm.

>Many of her lines in Touhou Hisoutensoku indicate that Meiling has boastful pride in China. "You're all not there yet! You're all children compared to 4000 years of history!" The script also reveals that she reads manga created by the tengu, compares Yuyuko to a Jiang Shi, and notes that Tenshi and the Celestial read Chinese works. (Many of Tenshi's win quotes in SWR come from Chinese classics.) This is how Chinese characters in Japanese manga and anime are almost always depicted: a pervasive stereotype of the alleged common traits and pride of Chinese people.

>The moonhoneys are called moonbitches bacause 3 idiots are thinking that SSiB is a doujin rather than a real manga

No, they're called "moonbitches" because they live on the moon, and they come of as kinda bitchy with all of their talk about how filthy, impure, and completely inferior the Earth and everything on it is. Oh, and one of them also basically threatens to kill everything in Gensokyo with a fan that also happens to be a weapon of mass-destruction.

See, you might not be aware of this, but nice people generally don't engage in blatant racism and threaten genocide against their perceived enemies. Assholes and bitches, on the other hand, do.

They are on the moon, and they are bitches. Thus, "moonbitches".

As for your "three idiots" theory, I guarantee you there are far more people who refer to them as "moonbitches" than there are who refer to them as "moonhoneys", and even if they didn't call them "moonbitches" any more, none of them would call them "moonhoneys" because "moonhoneys" sounds completely stupid.

Oh yeah. Meanwhile, youkais in Gensokyo are constantly repeating how youkais are faster, stronger and smarter than your average human, and yet you're still calling those impure and filthy beasts your "waifu".

But youkai generally are faster, stronger, and even smarter than your average human. That does not mean that cannot also be total assholes, which a lot of them are. Likewise, even if the Lunarians are as pure and superior as they claim to be, that does not mean they aren't also bitches. Even Eirin is kind of a bitch, and she lives on the Earth! These things are not mutually exclusive.
No. 14191
the fact they seemingly made fools of various fan favorites made them reek more of "Original character do not steal" than ZUN made characters. Too bad it was all part of Yukari's plan to massively troll the moon

The winning isn't as bad as it's made to sound by SSiB bashers, but it's hard to deny that it could have been better handled.

Tasafro is pretty fond of making jokes at Meiling's expense, just look at how they made her a joke character in IaMP.

Either that or she really needs to get out and about in Gensokyo more.

Fanon on the other hand likes to look for butt of dumb jokes even though it's been disproven by canon. Though the racism matter might help explain why the japanese fans started doing it (japan is pretty infamous for its xenophobia)

Canon= No knifings, no napaholic Meiling, and no violent break-ins by Marisa (she charms her way in and the only person who objects to her visits is Patchouli)

Hard to say, but I think impurity deals with the need to kill other living beings to survive. Their attempt to avoid death is mostly successful as they've attained very long lifespans, but with all the talk of political unrest in canon, the Lunarians seem unable to escape from human nature. Then again they're quick to forget that they were originally humans.

No. 14194
Well... the Kaguya thing was mistaken but I recall either in SSiB or CiLR that Reisen heard rumors/news of political unrest from the other moon rabbits and rumors that Eirin was behind it (not true). Things got to the point where Yorihime was under suspicion herself.

Part of it was debunked as Yukari's plotting (and having Reimu practice god summoning), though the fact the goverment reacted so strongly instead of dismissing it shows that there might be actual discontent on the moon.

The lunarians are not totally unpleasant as during Reimu's "captivity" on the moon, she was treated very nicely.

As for the Tokiko remark, please keep it reasonable as I'd like this unofficial peace agreement to last.

In other words, having brown huge levels filled with 2 monsters able to shoot you from afar and kill you almost instantly means having atmosphere.

It's Ancient Japanese BullshitMythology to try and explain why people get sick or die of old age and shit. If the Earth is "Somehow Impure", then they need something "Pure" to use as contrast.

Then they also threw in some bullshit later on to justify the "We're Special!" bullshit a lot of the Japanese want to believe in. That they're somehow unique compared to the rest of humanity.

Hey, humans agree that lamprey are delicious too. They're considered a delicacy in some parts of Europe, and they don't keep well so they have to be served fresh.

On the topic of lamprey, their reputation as parasites bugs me. Most of them are bottom-feeders, especially in their larval forms; plenty of species don't even eat at all in their adult forms.

Sure, they'd still do things like rape, but they'd be gentle if they do. It's funny, really... The ones who are strong are gentle, and one ones who are weak are brutal, and rough. Beyond that, you have their reasons for killing... Humans usually do it because they can, while Youkai at least do it for food...

Why the frack is Banshiryuu so darn hard? I've beaten every Touhou game except Ten Desires (for lack of trying), as well as Shuusou Gyoku and Kioh Gyoku, on Normal as at least one character. Banshiryuu? I can't get past stage 2. On the C67 version or the C74 version.

Also, there's a stage enemy pattern in Banshiryuu stage 2, which resembles a stage enemy pattern in Ten Desires stage 5, but it's harder since the enemies have more hit points, you're trapped in the center of them since they come from outside rather than spawning in place, and their bullets are both bigger and faster so you inevitably get walled in. Stupid spiral.

By Gyoku, is there a trick to this game or what?

The SMD-00X stole Shinki's wings and two of her attack patterns, and one of Yuuka's patterns too!

Amusement Makers knew that the fans wanted to see Shinki and Yuuka's return, so they included these patterns on the SMD-00X to say "We know we want these characters back, but we don't want to bring them back so forget you." Amusement Makers is the biggest troll in the Touhou fanbase!

Q: "Gensokyo" Has it been that from the new series (Embodiment of Scarlet Devil onwards) the whole setting have been swept clean?

A: Regarding the setting, consider that the newest work is basically the most detailed and right.[1] And basically,for the works before Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, even if the word view looks the same, I believe that you could enjoy the works from now on better if you regard that the setting doesn't exist.

Q: "Gensokyo" Do the setting of the PC-98 games still live?

A: Of course, nothing particular has changed.
No need to say that the setting that wasn't mentioned in the game doesn't exist, instead think it as only some portion of it becomes an issue in the games.

I'm not positive, but I think what he's trying to say is that whatever information would go in a hypothetical PC-98 Perfect Memento-type book if written at the time of the PC-98 games is now non-canon, but that the games themselves are still canon.
No. 14388
It would have been weird for Sakuya to show up in MoF.

Its' true and something most fandumb bashers don't realize: MoF's scenario mainly involved the Hakurei shrine and not much else (Marisa's mainly along for her own reasons)

It's similar to why Youmu returned in TD: it involves her direction with all those spirits.

ZUN's explaination is mostly good except for one character: Mima, the original pest to Reimu. It's hard to deny that her absence is anything but unusual.

Second would be Shinki as despite Alice being related and UFO being in Makai, it's odd how she didn't show up at all due to the intrusion.

But hey, it's the writers job to think of a sensible transition for whatever reason.

While that's true there are limits to how much one can bend things, being the stated bits of canon. But one would have go pretty far to go outside those limits.

>All because of her power.

>The angry mob had lessened the distance between them as she panted heavily, bending down to tighten her boots. The mob had come across her engaging in small talk with some animals and Youkai of the Forest of Magic and decided that she was a traitor. Of course, in the Humans' eyes, all Humans associated with Youkai had committed treason. An exception, of course was the Hakurei Miko. The Village Elders knew, of course, with Yukari's informal, that an orphan child was to be given to her every thirty years to become the next Hakurei the Gap Hag had her eyes on the Ibaragi child, the assumed 'Human' who had a natural affinity for animals. The girl had tamed a wild beast that had decided to run rampant in the Village and had released it back into the Forests after training it to avoid the area.

>Kasen, getting back up, glanced behind her and took to the hills; or more exactly, Youkai Mountain. Gathering all her Magical Reserves, she channelled them to the soles of her feet and took off like lightning towards the gloomy and overgrown Youkai Forest.

There were a few stories that the pro-human zealots tried to hijack new stories due to the easier bossed around writers and a low reader count (low resistance). That is not what I would call a fair vote at all.

The three main examples being:
Megasen's /forest/ story (which had one person vote spamming 10+ times on a couple of occasions)
Fever Dreams in /shrine/, which wound up dying in the end. It was their activities there that alerted me to their existence.
And Another Incursion in /border/, which saw something of a shitstorm as result of their interference.

Ultimately all three attempts failed, though in Fever Dream's case it was due to the story dying.

They certainly wouldn't do that with a longer running story by an established writer as the writer would tell them one way or another to stop it. There is also the matter of resistance that they'd meet from the other readers.

There is no 'pro-human' and 'pro-youkai' divide on the site. The argument is artificial and, in my opinion, fatuous. The fact of the matter that it's basically just one person on this alleged 'anti-youkai' side (reading his posts that is the conclusion to be drawn). So it's one guy, starting shit wherever he goes because he's taking a setting where magical little girls fight with colorful danmaku (and drink tea/sake together more often than not afterwards) too seriously. Not only that but he's a votespammer, proxy user and ban evader. I suspect that he won't stop spamming and disrupting stories because he hasn't despite being banned dozens of times already.

But this message is for the rest of the site community: don't be a dickhead. Let's not get into silly partisan divides if possible. Enjoy stories and vote for what you think is the best option. Just because things don't go your way or other people vote for different things that doesn't give you the right to be an insufferable prat.
