Located within Gensokyo's human village is Suzunaan, a bookstore that both sells and lends out books. Managed by Kosuzu Motoori, a huge bibliophile who loves collecting various types of reading materials, the store is known for having numerous books from the Outside World. Despite her seemingly innocent demeanor, Kosuzu has a unique ability to decipher all written languages—fueling her desire to secure even the most dangerous of books.

The deadliest books—called "youma books"—are written by youkai and embedded with their powers. Because of this, obtaining and stockpiling youma books in a small place such as Suzunaan poses an extreme risk that Kosuzu may yet encounter.

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

In a familiar manga medium, Forbidden Scrollery is primarily about the wonders and mysteries of the world of Gensokyo. Through the eyes of a normal human, Kosuzu Motoori, ...

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.
