Who is your favorite character from the Touhou games?
If you are unaware of what Touhou is, maybe you should click here and join in on it.

I've always been attracted to Reimu for her adorable looks and such, but I have to say Marisa is a pretty great character as well. I once took a "Which Touhou character are you?" quiz, and got Yukari. I don't see how I'm like her, but sure. :>

Seening how I've only played one game as one character, I'd have to say Reimu. I seriously do not understand this game at all, is it more than just a simple shooter type game? Wheres the health bar? Anyone mind explaining all of this to me?

btw I love the song Tsurupettan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfUe2eckPFQ).

There is no health bar. If a single shot hits you, you die. They're wonderfully hard.

But I'm sure I've gotten hit more than once and not died, and I didn't have the mystical border thing around me.

Well, you have more than one life. Also, not all of Reimu is a "hit" area, it's just a few pixels in the middle.

I like Scarlet Weather Rhapsody :D It's more like a fighting game than the classic touhou shooting style though.

I'd have to go with Hakurei Reimu since she's the only one I've ever heard of. Never played the games before.

So today, he walked up to me and asked if I knew where his picture was from one of the roller coaster rides at a recent trip to Legoland, Ca. I told him I was not sure where the picture was, and that I would find it for him later (when I was done working). He turned to me and said: “Why don’t you just Google it Dad, because you use it to find everything else”. I guess he does hear me (more then I realize) say stuff like “find it on Google”, or “look it up on Google” with everyday interactions with my wife, friends or clients! It was so funny, cute and genuine that I was speechless. I ended up finding his picture for him right then….

I Already Googled it and it still makes no sense, is seems to be some sort of arcade game, with a huge amount of complex detail about it. And outta that I've learned nothing, not why people like it, not who the characters are, just a lot of detail and japanese music videos on youtube that makes no sense. I'm about to lose mind over this, now could someone help me out here, please.

From Touhou wiki http://touhou.wikia.com/wiki/Touhou_Wiki

The Touhou Project is a series of 2D (with 3D background) vertically-scrolling danmaku shooting games made by Team Shanghai Alice, with two fighting game spinoffs co-produced with Tasogare Frontier. They are similar to regular shooting games, but focus more on weaving through complex patterns containing anywhere from dozens to hundreds of bullets


Basically it started from a manga or a light novel (I think). Then came out doujinshi mangas. And a hell lot of them too. Then came out the Touhou Project games.

I don't know but I think it's fairly popular.

That's just it. It's an arcade shooting game with a disproportionate amount of fan interest, as well as a disproportionately large fanmedia market.

There's nothing more to it.

Touhou started as a doujin (amateur) game way back in the PC-88 era, even though it only really got popular once it was released for Windows.

Although you probably could have known this by clicking the Touhou Wiki link, which even though thedarkestandy was kind enough to quote for you, is nonetheless the third link in the google search result for "Touhou".
