[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jb16UOIOris Another]] trailer has also been animated. Made by [[http://manpukujinja.blog135.fc2.com Manpuku Jinja]] with music by [[http://www.yuuhei-satellite.jp/ Yuuhei Satellite]].

The episodes are released without voice acting, only music, sound effects and Japanese subtitles. They get fan-dubbed by amateur Japanese voice actors after their release.

----
!!Tropes for the videos as a whole:
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Yukari's gaps are made much more prettier than they are in canon. The eyes are now simply eye-like patterns and there is no sign of the arms trying to claw their way out.
* AnachronicOrder: The games adapted by the episodes aren't in their original order of release.
** Episode 1 adapts Touhou 6: ''Embodiment of Scarlet Devil'' in the opening[[labelnote:*]]but the theme song comes from Touhou 10: ''Mountain of Faith'',[[/labelnote]] and Touhou 7: ''Perfect Cherry Blossom'' in the rest of the episode. [[spoiler:It also has Sanae appearing at the end, even though ''Perfect Cherry Blossom'' takes place long before her debut in ''Mountain of Faith''.]]
** Episodes 2-4 adapt Touhou 11: ''Subterranean Animism'' in their openings. Their FramingDevice is set after ''Subterranean Animism'', but the episodes are mostly flashbacks to Touhou 6: ''Embodiment of Scarlet Devil''. [[spoiler:TheStinger of episode 4 sets up a SequelHook for Touhou 12: ''Undefined Fantastic Object''.]]
** Episode 5 is based on Touhou 9: ''Phantasmagoria of Flower View''.
** The unused trailer is based on Touhou 8: ''Imperishable Night''.
* AnimationBump: For a fanime, Manpuku Jinja does not cut corners in animation nor the quality of art used in animation. This series has backgrounds comparable in quality to those of ''Anime/MusouKakyouASummerDaysDream'', with more detailed character designs by [[http://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=141357 Lunamoon]].
* BareYourMidriff: How Reimu's and Sanae's costumes are depicted.
* BeamSpam: This fanime depicts danmaku combat in this way, in contrast to most others that use the FullContactMagic approach.
* BlushSticker: Many of the more childlike characters are given these.
* ButtMonkey: Cirno.
** Aya doesn't get treated very well in episode 2. And even worse in 5.
** Like with canon, Reisen. She gets her food stolen by Tewi in a FunnyBackgroundEvent in episode 2 and gets poisoned by her in episode 5. Reisen was able to get Tewi back during the latter though.
* {{Cliffhanger}}: Any arc that has multiple parts has these until the final part.
* DemotedToExtra: Since the fanime is a CompressedAdaptation of the plots of the games, this usually happens to lower-level bosses.
** In episode 1, Letty's fight against Marisa happens entirely offscreen, and the Prismriver Sisters simply let Marisa pass without fighting her. Sakuya only appears to tell Reimu to go deal with the incident, instead of taking a direct role in events like she does in the game.
** In episode 3, Rumia flies right past Reimu and [[WatchOutForThatTree crashes into a tree]], and Reimu quickly takes out Meiling with a CurbStompBattle.
* EnergyBall: Reimu's FinishingMove "Fantasy Seal" involves crushing her opponents under a huge glowing yin-yang orb, [[StuffBlowingUp which then explodes.]]
* FishingForSole: Suwako pulls a geta out of a fishing hole in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene of Episode 2's intro. The fishing rod and geta are seen both equally fast at the beginning of the same.
* {{Gainaxing}}: When characters with average or above sized breasts appear -- such as Yuyuko, Yuugi, Aya or Sanae -- you can expect them to bounce about if they as much as turn around.
* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger: Marisa is fond of this, having pointed at Reimu, Youmu, and Patchouli.
* GrumpyBear: Reimu's characterization in this series.
* HotBlooded: Marisa, a LargeHam who is also prone to {{Badass Boast}}ing.
* IBelieveICanFly: As is the standard for ''Touhou''.
* IcyBlueEyes: Sakuya is given these in this series. Especially noticeable in the trailer for the second episode of the Scarlet Devil series.
* InstantRunes: The energy balls that are characteristic of danmaku are created through these in this series.
* ManOfAThousandVoices: The most famous Japanese fandubs were recorded by ''one'' actress, Pika Aizawa, performing voices for every single character.
** Episode 1 has 9 different voices: Marisa, Reimu, Youmu, Yuyuko, Cirno, Sakuya, Remilia, Aya and [[spoiler:Sanae]].
** Episode 2 adds 13 voices: Suwako, Kanako, Nitori, Alice, Daiyousei, Patchouli, Koakuma, Flandre, Satori, Rin, Utsuho, Yukari and Suika.
** Episode 3 adds 4 voices: Ran, Chen, Rumia and Meiling.
** Pika became unavailable to record fandubs for episodes after 3 (it's possible she may finally have gone pro), so further episodes are dubbed by other fans.
* MundaneUtility:
** Marisa regards the breeze from Cirno's Icicle Fall attack as pleasantly cool for a hot summer's day rather than treating it like an actual threat.
** Yukari's solution for not joining the Moriya Shrine party is to use her gaps to steal sake from it while she lounges in the hot spring.
* NeverTrustATrailer: The time and effort into making full-length episodes results in Manpuku Jinja's animations being music videos more than anime.
* RedOniBlueOni: Marisa and Reimu.
* SceneryPorn
* ShesGotLegs: Aya wears a ''very'' short skirt.
* ShoutOut:
** The names of the episodes reference American films --
*** [[Film/DrStrangelove "The Ordinary Magician or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Kotatsu"]]
*** [[Film/InterviewWithTheVampire "Interview Without the Vampire"]]
*** [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay "Judgment Day"]]
** Marisa says [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure "Yare yare da ze"]][[note]]approximately "Oh, gimme a break"[[/note]] when she sees the Netherworld's giant staircase. Probably not coincidental considering Marisa's "-da ze" VerbalTic is itself inspired by Jojo.
** In Episode 5, the idea that the mandragora root screams when it's pulled out of soil is original to the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series.
* StealthHiBye: Yukari is fond of doing this.
* TheStinger:
** After the end credits of Episode 1, [[spoiler:Sanae appears in Gensokyo thanks to Yukari.]]
** In Episode 4's epilogue, [[spoiler:Nitori discovers Shou and Nazrin preparing to unseal Byakuren, leading into the ''Undefined Fantastic Object'' storyline.]]
* StockFootage: All of the [=EoSD=]-derived fight scenes and shots of other Gensokyo residents reacting to the scarlet mist that appeared in the opening sequence of Episode 1 were incorporated into Episodes 2-4.
* StoryBreakerPower: Similar to canon, Reimu is miles above everyone else and solves the incident soon after she appears. Which is why she usually doesn't appear till near the end of an arc.
* SupportingProtagonist: While [[AntiHero Reimu]] is still the focus of the [=PVs=] and is the one who solves the incidents in the end, the episodes themselves tend to focus more on [[{{Deuteragonist}} Marisa]] and the incidents are usually witnessed from her point of view.
* ThemeTuneCameo: All of the vocal or background music originates from the games. Some are less recognizable than others, such as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yct-29yvnYw&index=4&list=PLch8dgiOsFXDzSBnkiMeOvbi3ltt8CJfL Yukari's "Necrofantasia" written in a major scale]] in "The Red Mist Incident".
* VitriolicBestBuds: Marisa and Reimu.

!!Tropes for "The Spring Snow Incident" include:
* AdaptationDistillation: "The Spring Snow Incident" is a short episode compared to the game, so the battles are shortened and some events are truncated.
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: Sakuya asks Reimu, "I wonder, if someone dies in the Netherworld, will she rest in peace?", leaving Reimu to consider if she would leave Marisa at Yuyuko's mercy because of her laziness.
* BigDamnHeroes: Reimu and Marisa save Spring, the season. In a more direct application of this trope, Reimu flies in just in time to save Marisa from Yuyuko's danmaku attack.
* {{Bizarrchitecture}}: How Mayohiga is depicted as Marisa [[ScoobyDoobyDoors chases Chen around]] in it.
* BystanderSyndrome: Reimu... initially.
* CallForward: Marisa's complaint about hearing youkai underestimating humans again refers to Patchouli's similar comment in the next episode.
* EmptyEyes: Although Yuyuko has pupils and shading in her irises, she's the only character who doesn't have white reflections in her eyes. This is probably to emphasize that she's a ghost.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Yuyuko can be seen dancing drunkenly in the background while Reimu and Marisa argues during the banquet.
* GracefulLoser: Yuyuko, just before Reimu defeats her with Fantasy Seal.
* GravityScrew: Marisa flies upward through the portal into the Netherworld, then hits what seems to be a ceiling until her POV inverts and she finds herself lying on the ground at the foot of the ridiculously long staircase.
* ImpossibleThief: How can you steal ''Spring?''
* ItsAllUpstairsFromHere: The path to the Netherworld.
* RammingAlwaysWorks: Marisa overcomes Youmu's swordsmanship by ramming her with her broom.
* SarcasmMode: Reimu's apology to Marisa for not realizing that the cold weather was an incident. Fansubbers translate this line in a variety of ways.
* ThemeMusicPowerUp: Reimu gets this when she rescues Marisa from Yuyuko.
* WhatTheHellHero: Sakuya gives a very mild version to Reimu for not going out to deal with the incident.
* XanatosGambit: [[spoiler: Even though Yuyuko's plan to make the Saigyou Ayakashi blossom failed, at least it provided a distraction to allow Sanae to enter Gensokyo]].

!! Tropes for "The Red Mist Incident, Part 1" include:

* BigFancyHouse: The Scarlet Devil Mansion is depicted here as looking exactly like the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C3%A2teau_Frontenac Château Frontenac]] with the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Ben Elizabeth Tower]] grafted onto it.
* BroughtDownToNormal: Utsuho, as she's seen partying at the Moriya shrine following the events of ''Subterranean Animism'' with her wings shrunken down and her third leg not present on her right arm.
* TheCameo: Over 30 ''Touhou'' characters are visible at the Moriya shrine.
* CatSmile: [[CatGirl Rin]], of course, and Koakuma have one.
* CreepyChild: Flandre, who asks Marisa to play with her because she always breaks her toys. To drive it even further home, she squeezes her teddy bear so hard that its head bursts.
* {{Fangirl}}: What Koakuma is portrayed as towards Patchouli.
* FramingDevice: Marisa is retelling the events of ''Embodiment of Scarlet Devil'' to Sanae while everyone is partying at the Moriya shrine after ''Subterranean Animism''.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Nitori doesn't just fold paper airplanes, she folds paper ''spaceships''.
** Quite a few things at the party in general, including Komachi being lectured by Eiki, or Tewi taking Reisen's portion of food.
* LaughingMad: Flandre when Marisa agrees to play with her.
* LipLock: Fandubs make it quite noticeable that dialogue isn't paced alongside the animation. Cirno's rant after being brushed aside by Marisa, in particular, stands out for being rushed.
* LittleMissSnarker: With the setting being post-''Subterranean Animism'', Nitori is in top form.
** LaserGuidedKarma: Her remark about the Moriyas constantly causing incidents gets her punted through the roof by Kanako.
* [[MadwomanInTheAttic Madwoman in the Basement]]: Flandre, naturally. This adaptation expands on it.
* AnOddPlaceToSleep: Flandre sleeps in a coffin that's placed on a bed--that is, if she were present.
* RedSkyTakeWarning: Created as part of Remilia's plan.
* RepeatCut: As Marisa presents her mini-Hakkero to Patchouli.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Cirno repeatedly boasts about her power to Marisa before Marisa flies to the Scarlet Devil Mansion, only to get ignored at every opportunity.
** Patchouli plans on cutting Marisa's ego down to size after Marisa boasts that normal humans can use magic too and that she'll exterminate the lot of them by herself.
* SomethingAboutARose: A rose motif frequently appears as decoration in the Scarlet Devil Mansion, including the lid of Flandre's coffin.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Marisa proves to be a minor one to the Scarlet Devil Mansion crew, as she forces Patchouli out to subdue Flandre.
* StalkerWithoutACrush: Reimu is apparently sharp enough to know when she's being spied on by Yukari, who wants to party with the rest, but isn't comfortable around [[AMindIsATerribleThingToRead Sat]][[PowerIncontinence ori]].

!! Tropes for "The Red Mist Incident, Part 2" include:

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Sakuya seems to be under the mindset that, with her time powers, she would be feared by the humans living in Gensokyo if she were to reveal them. Reimu is quick to point out that those sorts of powers are a dime a dozen in Gensokyo, however.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: The {{fanservice}} provided by Yukari, Ran and Chen soaking in the hot spring is limited to this.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Marisa showing Flandre some pity and affection is all the latter needs to [[spoiler:pull a HeelFaceTurn and team up with her against Remilia]].
* CatsHateWater: Chen is very reluctant to get into the hot spring. [[SuperDrowningSkills And for good reason.]]
* {{Cliffhanger}}: The episode ends with [[spoiler: Flandre confronting Remilia stating that she plans to defeat her if it means she can go outside]].
* CoolBigSis: In this continuity, it's not Remilia who acts like this toward Flandre, but Marisa. Justified since in the original story, Remilia's take on the relationship between herself and Flandre isn't known, and Marisa being Flandre's friend is widely-accepted in fanon.
* CurbStompBattle: Reimu's "battle" with Meiling which basically has Meiling getting ready to fight, followed by Reimu just shooting a dense blast of danmaku which a few scenes later is revealed to have knocked her out and punched a hole through the gate behind her.
* DidYouDie: Sanae tearfully asks Marisa this after the {{cliffhanger}} from the previous episode. Reimu provides the obligatory LampshadeHanging about what a stupid question this is, but [[CuteGhostGirl Yuyuko]] waves afterward, indicating [[DeathIsCheap a possible justification for the question]].
* FightUnscene: Between Marisa vs. Patchouli and Reimu vs. Sakuya, few attacks are seen directly; even during Sakuya's attacks, animation doesn't go all out, as her time-stopping capabilities fill in.
* FlamingSword: Flandre's Laevatein, which she creates out of fire itself [[spoiler: before confronting Remilia]]. This is consistent with the way Laevatein is described in ''[[AllThereInTheManual The Grimoire of Marisa]]''.
* FlechetteStorm: Sakuya creates [[http://oi39.tinypic.com/281xawn.png a very dense field of knives]] in front of Reimu. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for Sakuya, [[NoIAmBehindYou that's not actually Reimu she's targeting]].]]
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: While Yukari was stealing sake from Mokou using a gap, Cirno can be seen shooting light out of her eyes.
** Later, Mystia appears terrified of Yuyuko, probably fearing that she'll eat her, and Suwako's HAT appears red-faced and drunk for some reason.
** Mystia's concern is not misplaced: In the next episode, [[spoiler:Yuyuko's belly is stuffed (a reference to Manpuku Jinja's logo), and Mystia is nowhere to be seen.]]
* ImplacableMan: [[spoiler:After Sakuya falls into Reimu's trap, Reimu is absolutely ruthless in taking her down.]]
* NeverBringAKnifeToAGunFight: Like in most fanworks, martial artist Meiling + giant laser danmaku = one very smokey gatekeeper and one very destroyed gate. [[spoiler:The only difference from the status quo is that it's ''Reimu'' who fires the giant laser instead of Marisa, since the latter had already snuck into the mansion.]]
* NinjaLog: [[spoiler:Reimu creates an illusory duplicate of herself with her {{Paper Talisman}}s and tricks Sakuya into stabbing it.]]
* OhCrap: Meiling's reaction to Reimu pretty much starting and ending their "fight" with an extremely fast blast of danmaku.
* SlasherSmile: Remilia.
* TroubledFetalPosition: Flandre stays in one while trapped in the water sphere while Marisa and Patchouli fight.
* WeaksauceWeakness: [[spoiler:Being able to stop time isn't helpful if you can't even ''move'', Sakuya.]]

!! Tropes for "The Red Mist Incident, Part 3" include:
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: [[spoiler:Remilia and Flandre in the second half of the episode. They challenge the heroines hand-in-hand, and after Reimu defeats them, they are found lying unconscious, hand-in-hand once again, with peaceful smiles on their faces.]]
* BeamOWar: No less than two instances. First, Remilia's Gungnir versus Flandre's Laevateinn, then Remilia's Gungnir versus Marisa's Master Spark.
* BrickJoke: Nitori, who was kicked out of the shrine in Part 1, is seen in TheStinger of this episode [[spoiler: stumbling upon Shou and Nazrin preparing to unseal Byakuren.]]
* CoolDownHug: [[spoiler:Remilia gives Flandre one to stop Flandre's rebellion against her.]]
* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: Sakuya is moved to tears that Remilia and Flandre having fights with each other is such a big improvement over their previous relationship.
* LetsYouAndHimFight: After finding out that Marisa basically provoked Flandre to attack Remilia, Reimu is only too happy to let Flandre take care of the incident by herself. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, Remilia quickly pacifies Flandre, and the ensuing fight becomes a two-on-two battle.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Marisa successfully incites Flandre to rebel against Remilia. After a short scuffle, however, Remilia embraces Flandre and apologizes for everything she did, mending their relationship, and adding a powerful adversary.
* ThemeTuneExtended: The opening theme for this episode is the second half of the piece used as the opening theme of "The Red Mist Incident Part 2".
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Reimu ends the battle against the Scarlet sisters with a giant Yin Yang Orb ''several times the size of the Scarlet Devil Mansion''.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Flandre, but 495 years of being ignored has caused her to act out. [[spoiler:She gets better.]]
* WeCanRuleTogether: [[spoiler:Remilia attempts to subdue Flandre's rebellion against her with this.]] [[spoiler:It works, because Flan only wanted to go outside in the first place, and that was Remilia's goal at the outset.]]

!!Tropes for "The Flower Incident, Part 1" include:
* BadassFingerSnap: Sakuya does a neat snap with her fingers to end her time stop and catch Aya in a DeathInAllDirections.
* BreatherEpisode: There's no incident to be resolved, so everybody in Gensokyo is [[SliceOfLife going about their daily lives as usual]].
* CastHerd:
** The opening displays [[SuperpowerLottery Yukari]] [[OurWormholesAreDifferent Yakumo]], [[CuteGhostGirl Yuyuko]] [[DontFearTheReaper Saigyouji]], [[OurGodsAreGreater Kanako]] [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly Yasaka]], and [[TheMedic Eirin]] [[BadassBookworm Yagokoro]] in order, the "[[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Old]] [[BuxomIsBetter Maids]] [[OlderAndWiser Alliance]]."
** [[AnIcePerson Cirno]], [[FriendToBugs Wriggle Nightbug]], [[TheFairFolk Daiyousei]], and [[CastingAShadow Rumia]], "[[RagtagBunchOfMisfits Team]] [[TheDitz (9)]]," also appear in a scene with Yuuka.
* {{Cliffhanger}}: The episode ends with [[spoiler: Eiki approaching Mystia's stand, stating she's finally found what she's been looking for]].
* DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu: [[BoisterousWeakling Cirno]] is shown [[OutOfCharacter scared to death, sweating and trembling with knees shaking]] when confronted by [[TheDreaded Yuuka]] in her field of flowers. Wriggle, Daiyousei, and Rumia (see CastHerd) watch from out of sight in stunned silence as Yuuka puts a flower in the still-frightened Cirno's hair.
* LighterAndSofter: Medicine Melancholy looks incredibly cute and doesn't show any sign of her NietzscheWannabe personality. Then again, she doesn't really have a grudge against Lunarians and probably knows she can't do anything to them.
* MakeMeWannaShout: When playing in the garden, Flandre ends up pulling a mandragora out of its pot of soil. The ensuing scream ends up knocking out Meiling, Koakuma, and Patchouli and stunning Sakuya, Remilia, and Flandre herself and keeps going until Flandre uses her ability to destroy it.
* OhCrap: Tewi gets this when she falls for Reisen's WoundedGazelleGambit.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Yuuka is set up as TheDreaded by having the normally boisterous and fearless Cirno absolutely terrified of her.
* SliceOfLife: The episode follows Aya, who's trying to make a news story out of the titular incident. Unfortunately for her, said incident isn't actually dangerous, and everybody she comes across are just going about their daily business as usual.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: Tewi gives Reisen a non-lethal dose of poison as a prank. Reisen pretends to fall over dead, then grabs Tewi's leg as she walks past her and force-feeds her the rest of the poison.
