''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), each of which covers the story of different ''Touhou'' games.

The first part, ''Kou'', has been translated into English by Deranged. The patch can be found [[http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?topic=11076.0 here]].

----
!!This series contains examples of:

* TheCavalry: [[spoiler:Mima]] appears to save Marisa in the Underground.
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:Kanako and Suwako]] appear only in cutscenes in ''Kou'', seemingly planning their move for ''You''.
* CombinationAttack: Marisa and Alice's [[FanNickname Malice Cannon]]. ''You'' adds a Reimu/Marisa combination as well.
* 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''.]]
* ContinuityPorn: The game blends the story of the official Touhou games, including the PC-98 continuity, into one.
* CulturalTranslation: The subtitles "Kou" and "You" come from "'''Kou'''makyou" and "'''You'''youmu", the Japanese parts of the first two Windows Touhou games' names (which are relatively obscure in the English fanbase). The FanTranslation renders them as "E" and "P", from their English portions, "'''E'''mbodiment of Scarlet Devil" and "'''P'''erfect Cherry Blossom", which more closely fits the naming scheme of the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' games.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: A majority of your units are recruited only after you defeat them in battle.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:Remilia]] in ''Kou''. [[spoiler:Kanako and Suwako]] in ''You''.
* TheDreaded: [[spoiler:Yuuka.]] And if you attack her, you'll see just why everyone is afraid of her.
** [[spoiler:If you're feeling gutsy, have Marisa attack her with Master Spark.]]
* DualBoss: Minoriko and Shizuha, [[spoiler:Kanako and Suwako.]]
** WolfpackBoss: The three Fairies, [[spoiler:The Prismriver Sisters.]]
* EleventhHourRanger: [[spoiler:Sakuya]] in ''Kou''. [[spoiler:Youmu]] in ''You''.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: [[spoiler:Reimu and Marisa CombinationAttack in ''You'']] is acquired two scenes before the last boss.
* FelonyMisdemeanor: Sanae interrupts a party at the Hakurei Shrine to reveal a "shocking secret" about Reimu which will break everyone's trust in her forever. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnAD34rn-Lc#t=6m2s The reaction was not what she was expecting.]]
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler:Flandre]] in ''Kou''. [[spoiler:Yukari]] in ''You''.
** FinalBossPreview: You meet [[spoiler:Flandre]] as an NPC as Marisa. [[spoiler:You can beat her, if you can take her down with Marisa only.]]
* FragileSpeedster: Reimu, most Small size units, [[spoiler:Aya]].
* GlassCannon: Marisa, Sakuya.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Everyone has at least one. Sakuya, Nitori, [[spoiler: Youmu, Aya and Sanae]] have different ones both as an enemy and as an ally. The three fairies gain one for their CombinationAttack [[spoiler: and another one in CombiningMecha form.]]
* LightningBruiser: [[spoiler:Suika.]]
* LordErrorProne: Sanae, to a hilarious extent.
* {{Medley}}: The last stage track in ''Kou'' contains fragments of ''every single stage theme'' from Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, plus the title screen theme.
* MagikarpPower: Two examples in ''You''
** When Lily White joins your team she has only a single attack, low stats, and is practically an EmotionlessGirl; she powers up (and [[GenkiGirl brightens up]]) significantly once you get closer to where all the Spring was taken.
** The Three Fairies of Light increase in power [[spoiler:by learning how to [[CombiningMecha group together into a single unit with the sum of their stats]]]].
* MauveShirt: Tengu A, Tengu B and Kappa C in ''You'', three recurring enemies who are identical to standard {{Mooks}} of their species but have a few lines of dialogue and slightly higher stats. Kappa C stands out for also [[CharClone being red rather than blue like the other kappa, and claiming to be three times faster]].
* MidseasonUpgrade: Nitori upgrades to [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} Full Armor Nitori]] in ''You'', which gives her MoreDakka and a {{BFG}} WaveMotionGun. [[MechaExpansionPack The upgrades can be removed if you want Nitori to take up less space in your team.]]
* MightyGlacier: Most large size units.
* NintendoHard: When its harder difficulty levels boast to have the same level of difficulty as the classic SRW games, you know you're going to catch hell. Also a partial case of IdiosyncraticDifficultyLevels
** In contrast Easy and Normal compare themselves to more modern games, Alpha and Alpha Gaiden.
* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: Any enemy unit whose current HP is exceeds 10,000 will have both their current and max HP values replaced with question marks. Their health bar still shows the percentage of their health, though.
** Some of the older Super Robot Wars game did that too so it might have been done on purpose.
* ShoutOut: ''Tons'', to ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' itself as well as the countless mecha shows featured in the series, ranging from character dialogue, attack animations, to even musical nods.
* TheStinger
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Much of the game's soundtrack consists of Touhou tracks mixed to sound like particular SRW or mecha anime tracks.
* UnexpectedCharacter: [[spoiler:Elly and Kurumi. Shou and Nazrin in the second game.]]
