* What's going in in the rest of the world during ''Imperishable Night''? Surely outside world astronomers would pick up on the Earth suddenly ceasing to rotate, or a massive eclipse blocking out all direct sunlight? Would the titular night last long enough for its effects to be felt across the world? Or is it merely local to Gensokyo and Yukari's AlienGeometries situating it in AnotherDimension with its own [[AlienSky alien day and night cycle]]?

**It's likely that ZUN just didn't think that much about it. The mere existence of the outside world is ignored in most games after all.

Added DiffLines:

*** At first it might have been because ZUN was bad at drawing male characters (even worse than he is for drawing females), but after Touhou caught a large fanbase ZUN probably became aware that one of the main things his fans follow Touhou for is the Waifu material it provides, and that's probably why he replaced UFO's boss, who was originally going to be a male, for Byakuren Hijiri before releasing the game.

** And that canon explanation was arguably a lampshading.

** Mamizou only turns into Reimu because the spellcard is a reference to the CuteEmUp game VideoGame/PockyAndRocky. The stage 7 boss in that game is a tanuki who disguises himself as the main character, Sayo, who is a shrine maiden like Reimu.

*** Youkai exist in Chinese culture. The kanji for "youkai" exists in Chinese (except it's just pronounced "yao-guai" instead of youkai), and they also refer to a kind of mythical humanoid monster like the Japanese youkai. So yes, there are Chinese youkai as well.

*** Actually, it's more akin to Kira Yoshikage's Killer Queen stand from Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure. With it he can turn anything he wishes into a bomb, including people, giving an almost perfect parallel to Flandre. Later he gains the ability to make balls of propelled air into bombs when Stray Cat upgrades it, giving Flandre's range. Then there is the fact Kira is a psycho, which well..Flandre. The one who could fight Kira head on was Josuke, whom Reimu has been seen in some fanart with (including one where she wears his jacket and he...well, let's not go there). This combined with the fact ZUN is an extreme JoJo fanboy infact gives a hint of where some of Flandre's attributes came from so Tsukihime really is irrelevant here.

*** But humans are the only ones who care about cannibalism. Sparrows don't naturally eat other birds, but they also don't eat eels. It's not a cannibalism thing. They're just not built to eat meat beyond insects. I wonder what Aya thinks about all this, given that crows eat carrion, and are perfectly willing to eat other crows.
