*does not actually have to be in/from gensokyo, just touhou project.
I think Keine's hat is in fact, NOT the best hat, regardless of aesthetics. its shape means its liable to fall off her head at any given moment, and its small brim means it keeps neither the rain nor sun off her head, meaning it is not only stupid, but useless.
Therefore, I want us to debate which hat, is the single best, or at the very least, least shit, in touhou project. style can be a factor, but at the end of the day, a hat that cant do its job is still useless.
To start I'm going to say Marisa's hat is at least a massive improvement over Keine's at the very least it'll keep her head dry-ish.
>>16265 Aya's human costume is pretty nice over-all, but the discussion here is about hats, and to be quite frank the one she uses in her disguise was a poor choice, as it completely fails to hide one of the main indicators of her existence as a youkai, those adorable pointy ears. it is however, still a nice hat. maybe not a completely functional one, but it makes up for it in style.
A better contender though, I think would be Minoriko's.
Its stylish, much like Aya's alt hat, and functional, like Marisa's, plus it manages to stand out as unique while still being a relatively common hat, which is rather impressive all in all considering how the rest of the mob caps in touhou are rather samey.
>>16267 cant speak for the other guy but im not shitposting. I genuinely want to have a serious discussion of which hats are better and why, the only reason the op was so mediocre is because i wanted to make sure there was enough room to argue FOR that discussion.
>>16277 Still a useful hat, but I see where you're coming from.
>>16276 >>16277 for all that the hat isn't actually very good, ill accept that these niche uses are pretty good, and to be fair the orbs aren't going to be that hard to deal with given they levitate. but the fact that the orbs are mandatory at all is a bit of an issue, and they might still get in the way.
now a hat with some of the same advantages, albeit not quite as many, at the cost of having far less downsides? Eiki's hat. Status symbol, talking point, and just all around cool lo0oking in general, though it doesn't quite cover her head.
