I'm slowly becoming a big fan of Touhou, though I find myself immersed thoroughly in the games, and not much interested in all the doujin and fanwork stuff. So this thread is good for me. :3
Reimu is my favourite character to play, thanks to her cheating homing bullets. XD So what I usually do is just hold the fire key and focus solely on dodging bullets, and still kill stuff. This is bad though, as it makes me unable to play decently with other characters. :<
My favourite game, I think, is probably number 8, Imperishable Night. I managed to beat Final B today with the Reimu/Yukari team! I was very proud. It was only on easy, but still. XD My next step is to beat it with the rest of the characters so I can open the individual character option. It's not going well though, I'm too used to the homing shot, lol.
