The amount of secondary retards will always trump the amount of primaries. Tell me, do you think those who think only EoSD through IN/UFO exist while ignoring other games are fans? Do you think those who participate in nothing Touhou related besides regurgitating SDM memes are fans? They are not.

">>19949680
Here are my two cents on the matter: I dislike how EoSD gets a disproportionate amount of attention from the fans while essentially the rest of Touhou gets ignored. When compared to the rest of the series, I cannot fathom the massive following the cast, setting, and music from EoSD have and believe that fans' creativity would be better applied to more developed and interesting characters or towards songs that are more coherently composed.

It also doesn't help that there's essentially a feedback loop with EoSD fans. Newcomers get into Touhou either because of the numerous amounts of fan content made for EoSD or because they are told it is a good starting point, and fondly remember it as the game that got them into the series in the first place. Some of them would move on to make fanworks centered around the game, starting the cycle all over again.

I am not against them simply because they are popular; PCB and IN have casts that are also popular amongst Touhou fans, and many of my favorite characters come from those games. Hell, IN's cast is probably my favorite in the entire series. The difference between them and the EoSD cast is that they are actually interesting and/or developed characters that still provide a lot of interpretation for fanworks."

>The difference between them and the EoSD cast is that they are actually interesting and/or developed characters that still provide a lot of interpretation for fanworks
I don't know why you say SDM doesn't possess this. Outside of the non-character "Koakuma" and the hardly utilized Meiling, the rest definitely have a lot to them, or at least a lot open for interpretation, which is impressive considering that was ZUN's first shaky step into a new canon, and he didn't try getting more serious until he got to IN. This is obvious bias, basically.

Remilia? An enjoyable ojou who is kind rather than obnoxious. When she has her whims they can be bullheaded, but overall there are several examples of her simply being accommodating and a good "noble", such as saving humans, protecting endangered species, being the only person in all of Gensokyo willing to give ugly goblins work without blinking, being RIDICULOUSLY NICE to her fairy workers although practically all they ever do is fuck up her mansion, and so on. All this while attempting to maintain the image of a "devil".

Patchouli? Often appears in other works long past her initial appearance, important in several ways, quirky and although smart, so obsessive it ends up driving her into corners. Also pretty nice (see: helping Marisa in a storm despite all Marisa does to her, openly speaking with Youmu despite her intruding in CiLR)

Sakuya? The only human in a house of youkai, with an obvious anti-human bias and extreme dedication, though she's also quite a troll. Could have a really interesting past for several reasons, and it's doubtful we'll ever get a real answer. That her name isn't even actually her name (it's what Remi gave her) is interesting.

Flandre? Definitely the least developed among the cast who is still a character, but nonetheless the few details about her justifiably intrigue people more than someone like Meiling (who has some interesting aspects, like taking on challengers at the gate, but ultimately is incredibly basic). She's a character introduced as "too dangerous to leave" and you'd expect her to thus show up frequently after the events of her Extra. Instead, she hardly ever leaves even after being allowed the freedom to do so. Basically she's an actual hikkikomori, and wondering about that makes her pretty intriguing to me at least. Fanon also makes her crazier than what she actually is, which is more extremely smug, a little volatile, but mostly a cheeky younger sister."

Some may appreciate the religious symbols and other ideas more or less rooted in Eastern Culture, but for many, especially those that don't invest themselves completely, the EOSD cast is just more convenient as a whole: Loli Vampires, a maid that stops time, a lazy guard that build themselves through the short dialogue you have with them before fighting them is more than enough to be the spawn of many fans.";

Look at it this way man, EoSD, for all your criticism, has a pretty solid cast. It has a last boss who actually seems like a last boss, unlike some touhou games where the final boss either looks too cute (yuyuko) or doesn't actually seem like a threat to anything (mito and yuyuko again). As much as I love PCB and the cast, the stakes feel real low so it doesn't feel as important as defeating Remilia. Even played to Yukari, the stakes seem pretty casual. The other characters in EoSD also just FEEL important and deliberate. Not just like filler bosses before you get to the point. SA is kinda like this, and so is PCB. The music is popular because almost every track is catchy and memorable.
My point is that EoSD definitely does have prestige for being the "first" Touhou, but it also stands alone in that it feels like a passion project. A piece of art from ZUN's heart and soul and not just like a new addition to a series."

">>19963152
I dunno what you're talking about with "no filler bosses." Rumia and Cirno are the epitome of filler bosses, and while Meiling, Remilia, and (to a somewhat lesser extent) Sakuya make sense from a story perspective, Patchouli just feels like someone living in the mansion that the protagonists happened to run into, and she wants them out.

The stakes thing, I'll give you, but it's kind of undermined by later supplemental material. The whole incident was more or less staged by Remilia to make her presence known, and she practically handwaves it by "realizing" she can just use an umbrella and be fine outside. Hell, if Akyuu's piece on her is to be taken at face value, her weakness to sunlight is essentially no more than a conversational topic to her.

I get that this is likely colored by my opinion, but even if the music is catchy (which I personally disagree with for most of the soundtrack), it still gets a disproportionate amount of attention from the fanbase. Later songs are catchy and memorable, too, but why do they get nowhere near as many musical covers? Is it because they are not as good?

I suppose EoSD feels more like a passion project than, say, VD, but it honestly feels more like an experimental project, like HRtP or SoEW, as opposed to a legitimate shot at a magnum opus, like MS or IN. The overall feel of the game gives the impression that ZUN is still trying to get accustomed to creating games on a new platform, and as such there's a drop in quality compared to LLS and MS. While passion is there, the inexperience, lack of polish, and lack of a real direction to take the series make it feel underwhelming for all the praise and hype its fans give it."

A mix of memes and nostalgia, they're older and thus more easily recognizable and "classic", even though Zun has gotten better over time.

EoSD was not gothic or moe though. Lolita, sure, but only for Remi and Flan. The reason EoSD is so western was because ZUN thought it would be funny for a game literally called "eastern" to be western. He said the entire theme of EoSD was to be unexpected. With this, he had a stage one boss with an ability that seems to match that of a final boss, a snarky ice-winged fairy, a Chinese guard of a western mansion in Japan, a western magician who uses Chinese-style magic, DIO, Dracula, and Justice Lawrence Wargrave. EoSD is the only Western-style game in the main series ans is ZUN's most experimental theming project. He made it while he was bored in the early 2000s. The reason it got so popular was literally because of memes. Touhou didn't get out of niche until Imperishable Night and even then it didn't get huge until Mountain of Faith. It exploded right as websites like NicoNico, 2ch, and Futaba reached their peak popularity. "U.N. Owen was Her?" single-handedly drove EoSD above all the other games at the time thanks to non other than that one MAD featuring Donald McDonald. This introduced a tidal wave of new fans to the scene and all of them pounced right on EoSD, where the legendary came from. Then and there was when EoSD became entry level for everyone. This mentality permeated the western side of things too as otakus imported Touhou memes to 4chan and Youtube, with EoSD memes prominent among them. ZUN originally was going to finish Touhou off with Mountain of Faith as his job at Taito was full time and stable. The fandom exploded before Mountain of Faith released thanks to NicoNico, 2ch, and Futaba memes. Mountain of Faith completely sold out and ZUN was taken aback with the growth of the fandom. It was then that he decided to quit working at Taito in order to put all his work towards Touhou. Without memes Touhou would have ended and would have never been noticed in the west aside from in niche corners of the internet. It would've just been another series of obscure Japanese doujin games in a sea of hundreds of similar games. In conclusion, EoSD is not popular because it's better than the other games in any aspect. It's popular because of memes. This is undeniable now that nostalgia bias has overclouded what it originally was."

Modern gothiloli material is hugely 'optimized' for lack of a better word, as is moe. EoSD definitely qualifies as part of the paraphernalia which would get polished into what people think of it is now, along with things like Rozen Maiden, Portrait de Petit Cossette, Ashita no Nadja, etc, all existing around that time with a focus on european noble eloquence, gothic architecture, elaborate dresses, and small girls, that developed a huge following on the net (see early saimoes). Given various themes are so commercialized and specialized now it's easy to see how people can't relate them to the older sense of the word, but at the time EoSD would fall within those terms. There's no doubt the memes are what triggered it's popularity, but the right audience was there for them to propagate in."

>best patterns
I specifically said fun, rather than best because best can mean a lot of different things like aesthetically pleasing or creative. Judging purely from how fun they are to dodge is what I'm getting at.
>IN
Probably the highest density of streaming patterns out of all the games. Reisen's patterns also involve too much micro to be fun just to dodge. Reimu has some fun stuff to dodge though, along with some of the stage 6 patterns, but not all. Compare the Kaguya's final spell to Remilia's final spell to see what I mean.
>UFO
If I were to make a ranked list of mainline games it would be #2. Only thing that puts EoSD over it for me is that from Patchouli to the end is great pattern after great pattern.
>DDC
Seija alone drags it down massively, but Sukuna also feels underwhelming with some of her patterns. The one where she makes you bigger sucks for example. Up to stage 5 though it's pretty great, with Kagerou being one of the best stage 3 bosses across all games (again, by this standard) and Stage 4 bosses being great as well for some patterns."

How new are you? ZUN has gotten many offers from many studios to make an anime an he has declined them all. He also said that he would never want an official voice for his characters and that he's anti-franchise. If ZUN were any old regular greedy person then Touhou would have gachashit games, Senran Kagura-esque fapbait games, and multiple anime seasons. But no. ZUN said Touhou is his passion and that he would continue making games for as long as he can, even if there were no fans left. He is a dedicated, honorable man who would never sell his series to any other companies. Bless him."

"I certainly don't think the modern themes compare to his old ones, on average. IN literally has a god-tier theme for every stage and boss, it still blows me away how much concentrated goodness is in that one game - with modern ones I'm lucky to get one or two that stick with me.
Not that they don't sound nice, just not "i need to consume every arrange ever made of it" nice.

As for EOSD'd popularity, apart from the various circumstantial factors like time of release, I think the whole setting is the most easily accessible, you take one look at it and basically know what it's all about, the plot is straight-forward, you go into a cool big vampire vastle and beat up the inhabitants one by one. In other games the bosses often don't even have a relation to one another, and that makes all the difference in how easy it is to create fan content for it."

I think it's because EoSD is the entry game for most people into the series and if they never venture out further they don't really know themes from any of the other games. U.N. Owen was her is also used a lot in arrangements and MADs so people know it for its meme value.

I don't think either of them is a bad theme nor do I think EoSD is a particularly bad game and hating on it just because it's popular is dumb.
I do think it's a shame however that other, in my opinion, good themes such as Chinese Tea and Maid and the Pocket Watch of Blood are overlooked (though I do believe they still place rather high up in the polls).

As for him becoming shittier at music, I don't think so, I think his style has just changed and maybe the majority, myself included, prefer the old ZUN style. Not that anyone asked, but my personal favourite themes come from IN and MoF (MS does have some really nice themes too)."

"Reading all these explanations has been wonderful. I'm posting from my ps3 so I can't write a lot without taking half an hour But what I must say is even though I don't like to admit it, EoSD has a cast that boosts each other to create a memorable story. LoLK does this too. It's hard to explain, but dynamics are important. If DDC or Ten Desires had the entire cast knowing everyone else, I think they would fare better. Next I must say that although EoSD , PCB, & IN have the best soundtracks, Sekibanki's theme is fucking amazing, even though I generally dislike all rock/metal music unless it's shoegaze/dreampop. Finally, Native faith is Zun's rasion d'etre.

Definitely not. One thing I've realized over time is ZUN's music comes in waves as he feels like it and as is thematically appropriate. You can sort of mark specific periods when his music goes through a style shift and he refines it up to a certain point before there is another shift.

To be honest I'd say we're in the middle of another shift. It sort of went something like everything from TD onwards until LoLK and maybe including Dr. Latency which could be grouped up as a specific era. Then with DBOA onwards including the recent games have a much more different sound to them.

There is just a ton of rose tinted nostalgia in any fandom especially with Touhou involved."
