Memories of Phantasm's 2nd episode gets streamed silently

I think I need to get myself checked up, because I haven't played any of the Touhou games yet. As for the reasoning behind my latest sin, the answer is unknown. For now, I will blame time, which is a factor that affects many...

Incoming bullets: ZUN to appear at Anime Weekend Atlanta

Mr. Frontier Create, I have newfound respect for you

This latest single, "Ultra Tengu," is an impressive piece from 2010's Summer Comiket. I am also fearful of all things Touhou for the rest of my life. Thank you?

Touhou 12.8 will make me feel inadequate as a gamer again

I always look at games in the Touhou Project and feel a twinge of sadness, as I realize that I will never have the skills necessary to beat them. They may have fantastic music, a colorful cast of characters, and just have sol...
