''Gensou Shoujo Taisen'' ("Fantasy Maiden Wars") is a ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' {{doujin}} game series in the spirit of the popular ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' games, created by Sanbondo. The game is divided into four parts (three of which have been released so far), and loosely retells the story of every Touhou game from the 6th through the 12th, while attempting to create a more unified story between all of them.

The first part, ''Kou'' (Scarlet), retells the story of ''Embodiment of Scarlet Devil'' and has been translated into English by Deranged. The patch can be found [[http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?topic=11076.0 here]]. The second part, ''You'' (Mystic), combines ''Mountain of Faith'' and ''Perfect Cherry Blossom'', and the third part, ''Ei'' (Eternal), combines ''Imperishable Night'' with ''Subterranean Animism''.

** One of the quit game skits has a Kedama giving the player a tip about being careful around spell card effects after a long string of ellipses, referencing how [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Heero]] does the same in one of the quit game skits of ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Super Robot Wars Alpha 2]]''. Since Alpha 2 never got an English translation, the English patch of the game adds "it can hurt like hell" at the end to make the reference more obvious.



* DiabolusExMachina: After taking down Utsuho and talking her out of her plans of world domination [[spoiler: Shiro shows up with a swarm of Kedama, and attack Utsuho in order to get rid of the Yatagarasu. This causes Utsuho to lose control of her powers, threaten a [[GoingCritical nuclear meltdown]].]]

* BraggingRightsReward: Beating Yorihime in stage 49 gives you a "Lunar Magatama" which does nothing except say that you beat Yorihime in stage 49.

** ''Kou'' retells the story of ''Embodiment of Scarlet Devil'', but there's a running sideplot of Youkai Mountain dealing with the Moriya Shrine and its residents arriving, with Sanae showing up during the incident to judge Reimu for herself.

Youmu also shows up looking for ways to make cherry trees bloom, foreshadowing Yuyuko's plan to revive Saigyou Ayakashi in ''Perfect Cherry Blossom''.

* CombiningMecha: After being defeated individually, the Prismriver Sisters huddle together to become a single unit, which is treated mechanically like an SRW CombiningMecha. [[spoiler:This results in the Three Fairies of Light deciding to "combine" as well... in a scene which parodies ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann''.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BroadStrokes: In general, the games stick to the general story of the source material, but with some liberties taken. From the start, characters that don't appear in the game the story arc is based on appear and team up with the heroines (which is a divergence in itself).
** ''Kou'' retells the story of ''Embodiment of Scarlet Devil'', but there's a running sideplot of Youkai Mountain dealing with the Moriya Shrine and its residents arriving, with Sanae showing up during the incident to judge Reimu for herself.
** The first half of ''You'' is a retelling of ''Mountain of Faith'', a level right afterward is based on ''Immaterial and Missing Power'', and the second half retells ''Perfect Cherry Blossom''. [[spoiler: Shou and Nazrin appear in the second half and join the heroines and Marisa ends up accidentally getting sidetracked to the Former Hell. The two plot points converge in TheStinger when Marisa leads Shou and Nazrin to the Palanquin Ship and they free it.]]
** Though the divergences get broader in ''Ei'', the first half is based on ''Imperishable Night'', the second half is based on ''Subterranean Animism'' [[spoiler: and in between is a small story arc based on ''Silent Sinner in Blue'']]. Most significantly, [[spoiler: The Palanquin Ship is used in this game as a battleship unit with the Buddhist group operating it. The heroines are well aware of their goal to free Byakuren. Nue shows up, bitter that she was left behind by Murasa and shows up from time to time to cause trouble. And the ''Silent Sinner in Blue'' arc doesn't have the GambitPileup that was in the original story and instead, the heroines are asked to deliver a letter to the Watatsuki sisters by Eirin, though things are complicated by the letter being misplaced.]]

** Some of the older Super Robot Wars game did that too so it might have been done on purpose.

* BittersweetEnding: How ''Ei'' ends. The heroines ''barely'' manage to stop [[spoiler: a berserk Utsuho from razing the surface.]] However, the one responsible for the crisis in the first place is still unknown ([[spoiler: Yuuka]] knows, but she's not willing to share aside from hints). In addition, [[spoiler: Koishi's memory appears to be getting worse, to the point that she doesn't know how to get home anymore.]]



* DiabolusExMachina: After taking down Utsuho and talking her out of her plans of world domination [[spoiler: Shiro shows up with a swarm of Kedama, and attack Utsuho in order to get rid of the Yatagarasu. This causes Utsuho to lose control of her powers, threaten a [[GoingCritical nuclear meltdown]].]]

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: In ''Ei'', Reisen II (named Rabbit right now) meets up with Reisen first instead of Reimu like in SSiB, and attempts to get on her good side by claiming she's a fellow fugitive with lunar emissaries pursuing her. Instead, this freaks Reisen out, causing her to flee to Eirin and Kaguya to report to them, which leads into the IN part of the story.
