*** In many instances of their competitiveness, in the mangas and versus modes of the fighting games and phantasmagorias, Reimu and Marisa often declare that the loser has to cook dinner tonight. In one game, Reimu even asks Marisa if she's doing anything later, and if Marisa wins the next fight, she gives her response.
*** In Curiosities of Lotus Asia, Patchouli says that since Marisa's magical affinity is Water, and Reimu's is Wood, they have exceptional compatibility as partners.
*** In the versus mode of ''Antinomy of Common Flowers'', Reimu has some heartwarming dialog with Marisa if she's paired up with her. She laments that she almost didn't get to pair up with her during the incident proper, and she tells Marisa that she believes the two of them would be the best pair ever if they kept on practicing.

*** Reimu can be a harsh slave-driver when people in her charge aren't working as hard as they could, once even [[https://78.media.tumblr.com/1b63cd6d10f00c0a63a4c1f968c94ea7/tumblr_p4nldln6qG1sqpz67o1_500.png yelling at Sanae]] for stopping to chat with a person that Reimu was also chatting with. With Marisa, though, Reimu constantly apologizes for bothering her with work, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness sometimes even offering to do it alone]] if Marisa doesn't feel like helping. She extends this kindness to Marisa and no one else.

As the lovers hold hands, heart-shaped cherry blossom petals flutter all around them. Reimu and Marisa blush brightly and look away from each other, laughing about the apparent misunderstanding, and as Reimu nudges Marisa, one of the heart-shaped petals bops Marisa on the head. It then turns out Marisa was right about the Vengeful Spirit, but they were too distracted and it gets away.

* According to ''Wild and Horned Hermit'' artist Aya Azuma, when ZUN commissions a new chapter, [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Da84swoV4AAoFFo.jpg he describes every expression on every character in every scene]] in great detail, and he is apparently very strict about straying too far from his guidelines, so even the manga moments come from ZUN himself.

While the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fandom generally operates under the EveryoneIsGay format, the games themselves (and especially the [[ExpandedUniverse supplementary]] [[AllThereInTheManual material]]) don't exactly dispel the notions:

While the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fandom generally operates under the EveryoneIsGay format, the games themselves (and especially the [[ExpandedUniverse supplementary]] [[AllThereInTheManual material]]) don't exactly dispel the notions:notions. In fact, canon almost seems to wink at it while ''daring'' everyone to ignore the dozens of moments that keep popping up:


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Antinomy of Common Flowers'', Tenshi ends up becoming close with the Poverty Goddess Shion at the end of her route, because as a Celestial, she is immune to Shion's bad luck and poverty powers. The fandom, doing what it does best, immediately declared them the best new couple of 2018, and set about to shipping them.
** Right as ''Antinomy'' started to fade from recent memory, ''Wild and Horned Hermit'' Chapter 45 came out, where the plot focuses on Tenshi and Shion from start to finish. There was '''''so much''''' strongly implied romance happening between them that the fandom declared them an official couple, and that "everybody is gay" was now canon.

*** [[https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/403690334607114260/435223783742373888/x7.png Shion tells Tenshi she would love to try Celestial cuisine someday]], and Tenshi, normally a solid wall of smugness and overconfidence, stutters, sweats, and is visibly flustered as she agrees to do it someday. Kasen almost seems to have noticed... but the reason for her reaction is quickly switched on us.

Tenshi staggers away with a hangover, and Shion reaches out as if begging Tenshi not to go. Tenshi grabs her shoulder, and a look of dread washes over Shion's face, as though she's expecting abuse. Instead, Tenshi pulls her in close and smiles. The next and last shot we see is of Shion's bowl surrounded by fluttering cherry blossoms.

** In ''Story of Eastern Wonderland'', Reimu mistakes Meira's challenge for a marriage proposal and ''accepts on the spot''. She gets annoyed when Meira tries to clarify things.
-->'''Meira:''' I am Meira. I have come to take the Hakurei [powers].\\
'''Reimu:''' [[EngagingConversation Boy, that was quick...]]but okay!\\
'''Meira:''' What!? No, I meant your power! Also, I'm a woman.\\
'''Reimu:''' Yeah, not seeing a problem here.

* Ever since Marisa and Alice met ([[ContinuityReboot again?]]) in ''Perfect Cherry Blossom'', they have formed a bizarre partnership unique in Gensokyo, based not on greater power or authority but [[BelligerentSexualTension lots and lots of snark]]. They spend almost the entirety of both ''Imperishable Night'' and ''Subterranean Animism'' arguing LikeAnOldMarriedCouple, often ''ignoring the boss'' just to trade snipes. And yet, they still hold a large amount of affection for each other; Alice is abrasive and rude toward everyone, but displays [[{{Kuudere}} a rare sentimental side]] with Marisa, while Marisa herself, though very much a JerkWithAHeartOfJerk, is far more respectful toward Alice than she is to anyone since Mima. They even share a bed in one of ''IN'''s Bad Ends.

** She isn't shunned by all humans, though.

Many chapters of ''[[Manga/TouhouIbarakasenWildAndHornedHermit Wild and Horned Hermit]]'' and ''[[Manga/TouhouSuzunaanForbiddenScrollery Forbidden Scrollery]]'' either start or end with them laughing and bonding over a meal that, to all appearances, makes them look like a married couple. Official examples of Reimu and Marisa sharing intimate moments together are becoming so frequent, it's becoming hard to ignore.
