Fantasy Kaleidoscope ~Memories of Phantasm~ is a series of episodic fanime adaptations of the Touhouvideo game series. Episode 1 "~The Spring Snow Incident~" note Alternate subs: part one and part two, Swedish subs hereis an adaptation of Perfect Cherry Blossom, Episodes 2and 3 "~The Red Mist Incident~" are an adaptation of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil (which will continue into Episode 4), plus twoother trailers have been animated. Made by Manpuku Jinja with music by Yuuhei Satellite.The episodes are released without voice acting, only music, sound effects and Japanese subtitles, but have since been fan-dubbed.
Tropes for the videos as a whole:
Anachronic Order: 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* but the theme song comes from Touhou 10: Mountain of Faith, and Touhou 7: Perfect Cherry Blossom in the rest of the episode. 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 Framing Device is set after Subterranean Animism, but the episodes are mostly flashbacks to Touhou 6: Embodiment of Scarlet Devil.
The first of the unused trailers/openings is based on Touhou 9: Phantasmagoria of Flower View.
The second unused trailer is based on Touhou 8: Imperishable Night.
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.
Supporting Protagonist: While 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 Marisa and the incidents are usually witnessed from her point of view.
Theme Tune Cameo: All of the music, sung or as soundtracks, originate from the games. Some are less recognizable than others, such as Yukari's "Necrofantasia" written in a major scale in "The Red Mist Incident".
Woman of a Thousand Voices: The Japanese fandubs are 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 Sanae.
Episode 3 adds 4 voices: Ran, Chen, Rumia and Meiling.
Tropes for "The Spring Snow Incident" include:
Adaptation Distillation: "The Spring Snow Incident" is a short episode compared to the game, so the battles are shortened and some events are truncated.
Armor-Piercing Question: 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 expense because of her laziness.
Big Damn Heroes: 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.
Sarcasm Mode: Reimu's apology to Marisa for not realizing that the cold weather was an incident. Fansubbers translate this line in a variety of ways.
Shout-Out: Marisa says "Yare yare da ze"note approximately "Oh, gimme a break" when she sees the Netherworld's giant staircase. Probably not coincidental considering Marisa's "-da ze" Verbal Tic is itself inspired by Jojo.
The Stinger: Sanae appears in the epilogue thanks to Yukari.
Repeat Cut: As Marisa presents her mini-Hakkero to Patchouli.
Small Name, Big Ego: 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.
Something about a Rose: A rose motif frequently appears as decoration in the Scarlet Devil Mansion, including the lid of Flandre's coffin.
Spanner in the Works: Marisa proves to be a minor one to the Scarlet Devil Mansion crew, as she forces Patchouli out to subdue Flandre.
Stalker Without a Crush: 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 Satori.
Tropes for "The Red Mist Incident Part 2" include:
All of the Other Reindeer: 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.
Cool Big Sis: 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.
Implacable Man: After Sakuya falls into Reimu's trap, Reimu is absolutely ruthless in taking her down.
Never Bring a Knife to a Gun Fight: Like in most fanworks, martial artist Meiling + giant laser danmaku = one very smokey gatekeeper and one very destroyed gate. 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.
