    Game mechanics copied from elsewhere 
Red: Shot and bomb inflict burns on enemies. Can be really useful on bosses.
Orange: Shoots homing lasers by grazing, but regular shot is weaker. High risk shot, with even higher reward. In one hands it can be very OP.
Yellow: Additional options + bomb gauge increases faster. Something like extra power shot.
Green: Gradual movement speed increase + large item radius. Memes are coming. (Marisa Green Gem Un Focus, oh my-)
Aqua: Shot and bomb do splash damage. Does great damage on stages; not so useful on bosses tho.
Blue: Shot and bomb freeze enemies. I dunno how much it affects bosses tho, but it's not bad.
Violet: Basically, Yukari's SA warp. If you liked that, you won't be disappointed.

Regular grey crystals fill the bomb gauge; bombing turns them into colored crystals, which greatly increase score value + the super gauge. Focusing lets you vaccum up crystals easily. Conversely, staying unfocused lets you build up a lot of crystals on-screen and turn them colored all at once with a bomb. Lives are gained via score. Hitting C with the super gauge filled will activate a super-bomb that converts all bullets into colored crystals +doesn't use up any regular bombs and doesn't result in failed Spell Cards!

Also full game adds Kaguya as a playable character

Credit-fed through Marisa-normal

So many aimed attacks, oh my god. The game seems to be expecting you to play as a homing type

Way fewer lives than I'm used to from this circle

I can't tell if I've gotten really rusty or if the hitboxes are over-large and the death-bomb timers inconsistent

Bombs are stronger if you have more stocked now

Also what Hylarn said about sub shot mechanics: The final boss has a gimmick where she changes which one you use several times during the fight

Jan 29th 2019 at 1:16:53 AM

Yeah, it's much easier as Reimu. There's a few times where a homing shot is awkward, but many more where it's really useful. And it's not even a particularly good homing shot!

The stage 5 boss represents a major difficulty spike, and the game doesn't settle down like you'd normally expect for the final stage

As noted, the final boss does Okina's gimmick-cycling thing, but more so

Kaguya's intro screen looks familiar

Kaguya herself is just another spread shot. Poor damage output

I beat the game on Hard as Sakuya. Which is interesting. First time, accidentally picked wall-wrapping and nearly memed myself to death.

New Six Fairies Comic! grin Already caught a glimpse of posts about more Fairy Lore maybe? Interesting.

Already starts great with this signpost with the delightfully Adorkable inscription waii Like, yeah, we two heroines are hard at work to solve this dangerous incident, but we still take the time to carefully specify that this is our Incident HQ, and we are particular about choosin' a name for this Incident. Super cute.

Ohhh, time for "that goddess of Hell", really Reimu? evil grin Of the people who might be important enough to remember names for, she'd be quite high on the list.

Luna nooo sad Am a bit worried. Those Lore Bombs from Hecatia are actually pretty big surprised I don't want anything permanently bad to happen to Fairies sad

Man, that's now both Touhou Mangas with pretty huge revelations/cliffhangers open! surprised

So with the 15th Popularity Poll ongoing...

Any bets the Aki Sandwich will return after temporarily being banished last year?

Well, last time I killed it personally, and this year I'm not doing that, so I'd certainly expect it to come back. But the exit polls are showing that the gap has remained about the same, which is interesting.

I'm gladdened to have seen Cirno climb the ranks a fair bit (24 this time) but it does not amuse me that the Three Fairies are near the bottom.

The Fairy Nation needs more popularity!

[up][up] Dear Mage smile, Youmu, the best Touhou, has, according to that link, been Number Four for the last few years! Which was already amazing, but even more awesome that she climbed even higher this year! grin So yeah, she's always been here. (Edit: a big jump was three years ago, from Six to Four)

Apparently Mima is significantly less popular in Japan than she is in the western fandom.

That's not at all surprising, imo. I think PC-98 in general is way more popular in the West, probably because we're used to downloading the games and emulators, while for your average Japanese person it'd be quite a pain to get your hands on either the games or the old machine to run them.
