Synopsis

Touhou Suzunaan: Forbidden Scrollery. is a Touhou official comic published by Kadokawa. It introduces the human book renter and collector Kosuzu Motoori as the main character, with the story centered around her mysterious ability to decipher any book no matter the language or script, and her assortment of various rare and dangerous demon books.

Marisa Kirisame runs into Hieda no Akyuu on her way through the Human Village, and notices that she's carrying a strange book—a youma book, said to be indecipherable. Afterwards she makes her way to the Hakurei Shrine to ask Reimu Hakurei about them, but she doesn't know much on the subject. Marisa explains their dark and mysterious nature, and the two decide to take a visit to Suzunaan to talk to Kosuzu Motoori about it. She reveals her collection of demon books, as well as her recently-awakened powers that allow her to decipher any sort of script. Reimu worries that it might be dangerous, but Kosuzu is not very concerned.

Touhou is a title that everyone must have heard of at least once in his life. In case you’re not familiar with it, Touhou is a shooting game, made by one person who is ZUN. The game started off as a small project. Nonetheless, it became extremely popular in Japan. Not only that, but Touhou has tons of games, visual novels, light novels, manga, and even fan-made anime series! The popularity of this series has been growing continuously, but there is only one problem that’s preventing many people from getting into it, and it would simply be that they just don’t know where to start. read more

Touhou Project has grown to become quite a large multimedia franchise spanning from official video games, novels, mangas, artbooks and music CDs. There are also tons of fanmade stuffs such as music remixes, anime, fanarts, fanfictions, doujin mangas, fangames etc. It is quite difficult to get into the fandom out of nowhere because of the overwhelming amount of works of it.

Here, I would recommend Forbidden Scrollery as a start to begin your venture into Touhou Project.

People fear the unknown, and perhaps more importantly, try to understand it.
I'm a massive Touhoufag - expect a nigh-incomprehensible review unless you are one as well.

Forbidden Scrollery is about a curious human girl thrust in a world where she does not belong; the land of Gensokyo, a land filled to the brim with mythological gods and youkai. A place where humans are weak and the minority, and not the leaders of society.
With a newfound ability to be able to read anything in any written language, she delves deeper into the world of Youkai, something that she has little understanding of beyond the written wiles of read more

Preliminary
Touhou review - Forbidden Scrollery

ZUN is a genius, as a man who have a family, lots of life experience and alcohol, ZUN's work drips with messages and his life views, and as a result tend to run deeper than most manga and anime, one chapter of Forbidden Scrollery is worth a deep analysis about both the lore and messages, and is more fulfilling than 10 or more chapters of any other manga.
