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 people when it...
