In a web radio program streamed on UStream, ZUN has announced that he got married to a programmer half a year ago. He will hold a wedding ceremony on May 27th, the same date as the 9th Reitaisai convention. ZUN has been going around with his wife since Touhou Eiyasho Imperishable Night. ZUN said it hasn't really registered that he got married because he's been living together with his wife so long.

I'm not sure whether the 'not really noticing the marraige' is just ZUN being ZUN, or because he doesn't remember it happening due to booze.

I have noticed an increase in his art quality in recent Touhou games, maybe his wife is helping him draw. The improvements did start happening shortly after Imperishable Night after all...

You can never have enough of a Harem.


The only time that's true is when you have the will to keep it going and the girls don't overwealm you in the process. :p

Well let's be honest here. It's good to see that he's with someone he likes to be with and I have to say congrats to the guy.

On a silly note I'm guessing his beer ran out and this is what happened while he was drunk to begin with. lol

Ok why do I get this feeling that we got to know about this now is because he just ran out of Beer? lol

Although I would feelt bad for the Crow Tengu Aya since many of the fans state4d that she was his girlfriend....

Waitaminute is his wife's name Aya at all then that would explain why he likes his Aya very much.

I guess Crow Tengu Aya might be upgraded to his official waifu then. :p
