How did you get into Touhou and what were your first impressions?
I came across the music somehow and this train of thought happened, “hey this is cool….this is a game?….gonna watch some gamplay….HOLYSHITWHAT?”
Basically what Dean said. First I found the music, then I looked into it a little more and found the games, and then all the other fan material, and then
my whole life was ruined I just kinda got sucked into it.
*hides in shame*
Oh gosh it’s been so long I can’t even remember…
… Probably an IOSYS flash? I want to say Marisa Stole the Precious Thing.
But I’m so unsure it might’ve just been /a/.
It must’ve been back in 2007 or something.
I think I always sort of had a casual understanding of what it was (like I have most things) but I didn’t get into the games until that.
Vocaloid lead me to Touhou and I was afraid to tell anyone that I was interested because the games looked hard and, as anyone who just joined “knows,” “easy mode is for kindergartners.”
Marisa stole the precious thing… I looked up what Touhou was, and read a load of fanfiction for it. About two or three years after that, I played EoSD for the first time, and then it was like, bam, welcome to Touhou, take a seat.
First I actually saw a let’s play by one of my subscriptions on youtube. Then like a month later, I saw a flash and i was like holy shit these are the same characters????? Then I started looking it up and listening to the music and i actually played the games and aaaa
I had seen Reimu, Marisa, and Alice around before(but I had seen a bit of Marisa Stole the Precious Thing because of the Nico Nico Douga Medley) and I assumed they were manga characters for the longest time until I found a megathread of Touhou LPs on a forum I frequent, then I was like,”ooooohh they’re games”, then I played EoSD after a month of crippling curiousity and went on from there
i got into touhou when i started getting into shmups about 5 or 6 years ago, and doujin games were my source of entertainment on my computer [which i spent a lot of time on] and i discovered, Scarlet weather rhaspody due to my love of fighting games, and i SUCKED at the game really bad. then i met someone who explained it and such and he told me the series it was based on and it went off from there.
