I like when people add things to that post.

Apparently internet tough guy Kyubey made a very quick trip through the Touhou part of tumblr because I actually saw names I recognized in my notes for it.

Is Freddy one of those spherical cartoony bats?

takerfoxx:

Pretty much, yeah.

Perfect.

I regret not reading Tag Dream sooner, even if it has some flaws.

It’s a damn sight better than my decision to reread Orphan. Probably gonna just drop that plan entirely.

hey i’ve been thinking of getting into touhou but there are so many games i don’t know where to start ;_; could someone give me a recommendation?

Mountain of Faith and Subterranian Animism are the ones I think are considered te over all best.

Look I’m not that great at getting my thoughts across so I’m just gonna let you have this victory. Maybe Kasen can be seen as overly competent. It just doesn’t seem all that different from other characters and I don’t see it as a reason to hate her as a resident of…

I know there is some questionable writing in WaHH but ZUN has never exactly been the best writer. There was likely a better way to handle the Watatsuki sisters as well. In the end though, Kasen is a decent character who has some flaws both as intentional parts of her and as unintentional effects of how she’s portrayed and perceived in the manga.

Also I just wanted to link to a defense of her that I thought was okay and make a reference to the Incredibles. :(

I did read the post, I was making an offhand comment about the very end of it. I mean I could make more meaningful comments about, for instance, how Kasen is introduced in chapter 1 of WaHH but I didn’t really feel it was needed when the argument was good as is.

Touhou…

In a world where everyone’s OP, no one is.

I do not wish to start any flame wars or anything of the sort, but I would like to invite you to exercise a bit more thought before posting an opinion on the Internet based on what I can only recognize as a very, very superficial…

Touhou really can be a case of everyone being seen as OP Mary Sue type characters except at that point there’s not really meaning to saying it’s a problem with any one specific character because all of them are OP and unreasonably successful.

Also Kasen’s only appearances (save for one or two in OSP) are in WaHH which is literally the manga about her. Why it wouldn’t make her look to be a powerful character who can play with Gensokyo’s big girls is beyond me.

also i like kasen. i have no issues with her and like the defense of her even though i’ve literally never seen her get hated on first hand.

  • Character: Kasen Ibaraki
  • Fandom: Touhou Project
  • Reason for Being Hated: Poorly written, sticks her nose into people’s business, gets along fine with at least one shinigami despite being a hermit, considered by some to be a Mary Sue, good at solving problems despite not being a main…

In a world where everyone’s OP, no one is.

I legitimately was not aware of the fact that people dislike Kasen until that ask a while back. And I still don’t get it.

sekibanki:

i laugh so hard at how everyone act surprised or excited at zun saying that he wouldn’t put any fanservice in his games

He seriously does look like the kind of guy who would draw/put fanservice, doesn’t he?

There’s more to fanservice than lewd pictures of girls, I’m afraid.
