Just... what exactly is throwing supposed to do to an Artifact of Doom? Like, did Reimu just lob the thing into the middle of the kitchen floor? Hurl it against a wall? Or did she get fed up with it and tried to chuck it like a frisbee off her property and into the woods?

Hello, fellows. I am thinking of doing a revamp of the Awesome Music/Touhou section, as I have been using it a my go to source for random touhou mixes.

I wish there was a "Props" community currency we could nominate people to receive in recognition of their work cleaning up the wiki, because I'd say you've earned some.

I especially like how Tenshi explains the plan with a casual "oh btw now that I've said all this out loud the surprise attack won't work anymore."

I like the conclusion of that manga. I mean, there wasn't really a point with Tenshi other than make Reimu appear more of an idiot, and there were a few pages missing between Reimu's final resolution and Tenshi explaining what happened, and maybe some other details that could've been better, but overall I liked it.

Also, love Kasen's expression when she makes the suggestion for what to do with that thing. And the final page.

Actually, it's probably better to just say Kasen looks awesome in any way whatsoever.

@Astal: really cool that you cleaned up those links, thanks! smile[tup]

Aya Azuma has apparently confirmed on Twitter that Chapter 50 is indeed the last Wa HH chapter.

That is an appropriate-sounding number, and the end was definitely already in sight after the last chapter, so, ok.

So many things ending this year. The Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones, Wild And Horned Hermit...

(One of those things is not like the others...)

Indeed; of those three, only WAGHH!! was of consistent good quality! tongue

(Final chapter casually drops)

...

surprised

Oh Gods. O_O

Let's go.

Backstory! Yes please!!

Ok, pretty much what we suspected all this time... I'm very unsure what to think about Kasen's comments about "not caring for reality anymore" or somesuch... I'm just searching for validation that my liking of Kasen for all these years as a genuinely good person was not misguided... sad

"It had already eaten several people" HOLY %&$§, that's DARK!

Dat Fantasy Seal, yeeessss.

Oh!! Is this it!? Is this what I was hoping for? Kasen did this shady stuff these last issues as a plan to actually do good?! Hopefully! surprised

...I'm starting to get really confused about the state of Kasen's personalities/bodies...

Very Badass Reimu Moment, followed instantly with a jumpcut, so we just skip the awesomeness... whyyyyyy.....

Tenshi: cool story, bro. (No, seriously, I'm happy Kasen's good reputation is maintained this way smile I was not actually aware that at this point, no one else had yet discovered her secret!)

"Why! Won't! It! DIE!?" Hahahaha evil grin

Dat ending was very nice and atmospheric... but, gotta say, I don't understand much of what Kasen means and what will happen next/in the future with the arm situation. But! If I understand all this right, Kasen will still be just who she was before with all the other chars, and she seems to be a good person still. That is pretty much all my fears alleviated, and the kind of Status Quo I can absolutely accept smile

So yeah, that was pretty cool! smile

I definitely think we can all take away a very important lesson from this ending.

Always check your food for sharp objects.

Hahahaha evil grin[tup]

Actually, it's probably better to just say Kasen looks awesome in any way whatsoever.

Absolutely! [tup]

I thought it was rather sweet that Reimu couldn't bring herself to go all-out because she felt so bad about fighting Kasen. Once she found out that the good Kasen she knew was still there and didn't actually betray her, she's all "I don't need a surprise attack to beat you! ROAR!"

Also, Kasen commenting on basically disintegrating that "It hurt like hell, though." was funny.

[up][up]During the fight Kasen's minds weren't fully merged yet, so there were still a bit of arm-Kasen and a bit of hermit-Kasen in there.

So yeah, hermit-Kasen wasn't just pretending, she's actually into this hermit thing. Everybody else just misunderstood her intentions.

[up]LOL. Yea, up until that point, she seemed kinda the outlier among the sages in terms of manipulation (but only kinda, since she did outwit Mamizou of all people).

[up]Thanks again for your efforts! [tup]

So, I finally made my Touhou Char Tier List, with that Tierlistmaker website. Now that was a muuuuuch quicker, easier experience than the good ol' Char Sorter, lemme tell you evil grin, with pretty much the same results in the end.

Those results being:

-Seven God-Tier chars in S-Tier for me: Youmu, Kasen, Marisa, Mokou, Sakuya, Sumi and Nitori. Struggled a bit with Nitori, but kept her here in the end, for her personality and huge gadget potential.

-Six Awesome chars slightly below those, in A-Tier: Clown Girl, Cirno, Hecatia, Kogasa, Kokoro and Yukari. Almost made it to this tier: Raiko, Alice and Reimers.

-Now, B- and C-Tier is, inevitably, where the vaaaaast mass of the chars reside, with C bein' the larger one. Into C, I dumped everyone who is perfectly okay to exist, but doesn't bring anything to interest me specifically (random examples being Shou, Ran and Parsee). To get into B, they had to have something I liked, but not quite enough to ascend to the two Top Tiers (examples here being Seija, Sekibanki and The Fortune Teller (yes, really)).

-Since Touhou and its chars are awesome, the bottom two tiers (D and one I created myself, "...who?"evil grin) are very tiny, with five chars each. D is for those few chars I don't care about at all, that have ...something... that actively annoys or disinterests me. The borders between that and the "...who?"-Tier are kinda fluid, but into there I put chars that are so nonexistent that I couldn't even think of something to dislike in the first place, which is maybe worse? tongue

Sadly, the Tier List Template didn't yet have the three new chars from the latest game, otherwise, obviously, Our Feathered Holy Goddess Of The Sacred Chicken Roast would have been waaaay up there surprised <3

Last night, I downloaded Ten Desires from Steam, and I finally got to play the Touhou game that was the newest one when I first started following the franchise.

The first thing I noticed after applying thcrap to it and firing it up was that the resolution was grainier than more recent games. But I suppose that's just a product of the game's age.

But out of the games I've played so far, this one is the one I enjoyed the most. It took a bit of getting used to not having the spirit items (i.e. Trance meter filling and bomb and life fragments) get auto-collected when I get near the top of the screen. And losing a full level of power after getting pichuun'ed was harsher than I was expecting, but the spellcards in this game were neat. Kyouko's echo-fields where her danmaku bounce off the edges of the fields, Yoshika's spirit absorption, Seiga using Yoshika as a shield, Futo being hard to focus-fire on with her fast horizontal movement or her danmaku making the area below her too dangerous to enter; they required some unconventional tactics to get past. But I did so, and I beat the game on Easy with Reimu on my first try. Granted, it wasn't a 1cc, but I still felt a sense of accomplishment from that.

I didn't do quite as well with the other characters, especially Youmu. I had a hard time getting used to her unusual focus mechanics.

I do have one question, though. I saw that Trance Mode activates automatically upon death, but that it can also be activated manually. While I was playing, I never manually activated it, but when would be a good times to do so?

You earn double soul pick-ups when in Trance mode, so you want to use Trance whenever a bunch of life fragments are dropping, iirc. So you get more lives.

A couple of times, when fairies dropping bomb fragments show up, killing them quickly enough will cause fairies carrying life fragments to spawn in as well. Saving trance for those occasions can be a good idea.

I never could get more than 7 lives total across an entire run of Ten Desires. Often it would give maybe 6.

This counts the starting three lives.

Yeah, I consider Ten Desires to be one of the stingiest games in the series in terms of resources.

It's why I enjoy playing Double Dealing Character much more, because even though it's overall harder in what it throws at you the resource gathering mechanic gives you way more opportunities to recover and stock up on lives and bombs.
