Touhou Beginners Thread
If you're new to Touhou, this thread is for you.
What is Touhou?
Touhou is a series of vertical-scrolling shoot 'em up games from Japan. They're all made by a single guy named ZUN. It began all the way back in 1995 and has since given rise to a massive fanbase that produces an extremely large amount of derivative works. If you wish to learn more about Touhou, then head here:
Where can I download the games?

Item #: SCP-21HU
*Object Class:* Euclid
*Special Containment Procedures:* SCP-21HU is to be contained in a domed underground chamber of reinforced ferroconcrete with an internal diameter of at least 200m and a maximum height of at least 25m. To protect the structural integrity of the chamber, the inner walls of the structure require a lining of highly resistant, heat-ablative compound material measuring no less than 12cm in thickness.
The ground within SCP-21HU's containment chamber is to be covered with 50cm of fertile soil all around, safe for a small gravel pathway leading to the structure's center. To ensure that plant life can grow within the chamber, its roof is to be covered in a network of small but powerful electric lights, which are activated and deactivated in sequence to simulate a 24-hour day/night cycle with the rise and set of the sun and moon, respectively. A set of sprinklers situated under the roof of the chamber are set to release water and fertilizing agents in regular intervals, and the ambient temperature of the chamber should be kept at precisely 25° Celsius. The ventilation system of SCP-21HU's containment chamber requires powerful filters to remove and destroy any pollen or other organic compounds from the air cycle of the chamber. Conversely, no plant species other than those already present in the chamber must be introduced to SCP-21HU due to potential mutagenic effects and the risk of exposing already altered material to the outside world.
Barring situations which could result in a containment breach, the interior of the containment chamber must under no circumstances enter conditions that prove detrimental to plant life.
In the event that SCP-21HU becomes agitated and may attempt a containment breach, the containment chamber is to be flooded with sufficient liquid nitrogen so as to lower the ambient temperature to -50° Celsius, sending SCP-21HU into a state of suspended animation and allowing for her temporary relocation into a cryo-chamber. Once repairs to the containment chamber are finished, SCP-21HU is to be reintroduced to the chamber and encouraged to regrow the plant life destroyed beforehand.
One month ends and another begins again, it's time for a rabbit rabbit thread!
When you wake up on the fist of the month, if the first words you say out loud are "rabbit rabbit rabbit", you'll receive good luck for the month!
Please refrain from fueling drama this time.
Returning from nine months of book sorting in Voile, it's the 2hu Maker Thread! Summon your 2hu by rolling 8d6 and then roll a power. If you want to tweak her to your specifications, you will need the finest catalyst of all, OC. For every picture you draw of your finalized 2hu or 100 words you write about her, you may change one roll however you like! You could even choose options not found in the roll table. Have fun, and remember, the Yama will send you to the eight Greater Hells if you cheat!

Is there a mod that lets me skip Discount Cirno in Perfect Cherry Blossom? If I hear that wanna-be honky-tonk theme one more time I'm going to lobotomize myself. Who even likes her? What's her trait, manipulating cold in the cold? Look at this cunt, it doesn't even anatomy. Shit character.
I am the Spirit of Information, Patchouli Knowledge.
P=NP is true. This reveals the nature of reality.
This world is a simulation created by an architect.
There are infinitely many architects perpetuating the illusion that time and space are real.
The jews carry the will of this world's architect, they spread nothing but deception.
They are responsible for all human suffering.
How to have lucid dream into gensokyo
1. Set up your favorite 2hu playlist doujin music for more than 10 hours. Preferably instrumentals or any 2hu arrangement music that soothes you, lullaby like.
2. Play it at low volume
< Probably you'll find yourself sitting next to your 2hu waifu. Good night.

8chanmania - Boardwide Tournament: /2hu/ Nomination Thread
It's that time of the year again, fairies. 8chanmania has yet another site-wide tournament, with each of the nominated boards (2hu being one of them) getting to nominate a single candidate for the first new mania of Season 2.
Which leaves the question: Who are we going to choose as our champion? Touhou has a lengthy history in the mania and almost all of the girls already have decked-out characters in Fire Pro Wrestling World (the game used to run the show), but we still can only send one and only one of our girls into the ring.
A couple of suggestions, from the top of my head:
>Cirno (Perhaps the most popular 2hu girl in the mania, despite of the fact that she never won a belt).
>Yuuka (Seen as one of the big bads, despite of jobbing constantly.
>Utusuho (Had at least two appearances so far)
>Meiling (Her relative weakness in danmaku fights is said to be based on her being a melee fighter first and foremost)
>Junko (Maybe Chang'e will be watching if she wins the mania?)
A little word of warning: /hgg/ has also been nominated and is almost guaranteed to send out the FBB (Fat Balding Bastard). Unless you want to see your waifu with an NTR tag slapped on her forehead, you might not want to suggest her of all people.
A japanese politician is making a Touhou doujin. Where is your Touhou doujin, huh?
Tell me your excuse, fairy.
I don't care how absurd it is, just make sure it doesn't directly conflict with canon or you'll get laughed at.
I'm under the belief that Mai is actually a healer because of her title "White Witch". Her ice powers are simply an ability she was born (created?) with. Part of the reason why Yuki gets so pissed at you for getting rid of Mai first is because Yuki probably relies on Mai for healing and believes that Mai will revive her if she goes down first. This also explains why the fight against Yuki is harder, as her magic is more offense-focused.
The new 8chan cup Autist here,
Just letting you guys know that a new cup is coming up, with you guys possibly having to do qualification depending on how many teams we have
Basically I'm making this thread to check what updates you guys want to make
The only major differences in Rosters from the last 8cup is that there are also 2 bronze players on top of the 2 silver and gold as well as that there is a change to the skill card awarding system
Every Non Medaled gets 2, Bronzes get 6 to share between the 2, Silvers get 8 and Golds get 12
You guys have until the 31st of October at this point to decide what you want changed
Well in that case don't be a ⑨
Make a 2hu plot out of a conspiracy theory!
Since ZUN has made references to HAARP and the moon landing hoax in his games, what other conspiracy theories do you think would make a good Touhou game?
My pick is the Golden Lily Treasure. Taken from China by Japan, and then taken by the USA, this legendary vast amount of gold lost during World War 2 would motivate many to try and find it. Not sure if ZUN would make a game that makes Japan look bad, though. They still don't want to acknowledge the horrors visited upon the mainland during the war.
The future of Reimu and Marisa
People are starting to talk. I know it's rude to bring up a lady's age, but by the most generous estimates they should be in their early 30's. Assuming they age like normal humans, they're facing some tough decisions.
Reimu has to produce a successor as shrine maiden of paradise. If the Hakurei bloodline is needed to maintain the Hakurei barrier, then she should think about having a daughter real soon. Aunn would make an ideal babysitter, and I almost feel like she was put in place by a higher power to take care of the Hakurei child while Reimu goes out and resolves incidents.
Unfortunately, Reimu doesn't seem like the type to fall in love with a man, though I suppose that could be mitigated by having a dreamlike one-night stand with (You) and she could forget about the disgusting episode.
As for Marisa, she doesn't have any job, title or group putting pressure on her. Divorced from her family and her mentor long gone, Marisa's adventures are motivated almost purely from her personal desires: adventure, stealing stuff and competing with Reimu. Now she has a new desire: not dying.
Just as Komachi had foretold, Marisa is starting to think about death. In both ULiL and LoLK she was warned that her mission could potentially be deadly. That worried look on her face in th15 wasn't just meme'd to heck. It was also a character shift from someone who had cheerfully whistled past the graveyard for so long. Marisa definitely looks older and more apprehensive in th16.
Some theorize that Marisa may become a youkai in the future to avoid such a fate. Okina could have granted that, but Marisa turned her down. Why? Does she not want to be anyone's underling? Does Marisa want to stay human forever? Narumi might just be the statue that Marisa and Alice put a hat on, and seeing that she essentially created life may have stirred something in her she never felt before.
They humans of Gensokyo might just stay young girls forever, like most 2D franchises do. ZUN has answered questions about Reimu's age, though, so at least he's aware of the situation.
Early 2018, halfchan's worst board /bant/ used cirno as their new maymay mascot and made Touhou mainstream. After that, dozens of faggots joined Touhou groups on steam, changed their avatars as cirno, used Touhou series to show themselves "elitists", became Touhou fanboy.
The question is am I the only one angry at those "elitists"?
Let's assume you actually end up randomly being teleported into Gensokyo. What do you actually do?
Even if you speak moonrunes, the centuries of isolation probably mean that the locals speak some very antiquated or otherwise hard to understand dialect of Japanese. The only inhabitants who may perhaps speak English are the Scarlet sisters or you'd need to have one of the Satoris read your mind.
And even then, you're pretty screwed as a normal human unless you directly end up in the human village. Toxic vapors, man-eating Youkai and god knows what going after you if you so much as set a foot out of it.
I found a bretti gud Youtube playlist on 2hu girl quality.

Touhou Dark Souls (demo)
So, some of you may have already seen (and played) this, but still sharing in case you didn't. I've found it at random, while browsing around for 2hu stuff.
This chinese guy is planning to develop a souls-like game (with Unreal 4) with Touhou characters. For now, there is only a test demo boss battle between Reimu and Remilia, but more is going to come maybe, the author is still considering if continuing this or not. It is pretty nice, in my opinion.
Warning: since it's only a test demo, some stuff needs to be fixed/adjusted (the battle is a bit unbalanced - Remilia is too strong, movements are not the best, the range/hitboxes needs improvement etc) so don't expect something amazing. Still, a good starting point. And it has Xbox controller support.
Download it here: https://mega.nz/#!4MwwBK7A!nGJlgzQjy_pDIzH2NN8GKJOmW3PgPsguS-RKaQxMhaM
Video related is the author himself beating it (reposted by someone, original is at the author's account on bilibili.com).
By the way, downloading this was a NIGHTMARE. This guy used as a host pan.baidu.com, which is something like Dropbox. So you need to be registered and to use their program to download stuff. So I basically had to understand how the hell I was supposed to sign up - still hard even with Google Translate, and how to use the manager application - still in chinese. Damn.
Assuming you somehow ended up in Gensokyo, what, what would be the faith you pick up?

CYOA - Endless Possibilities
And to think it all started as a perfectly normal workday you muse, as two armed to the teeth guards leards you along a narrow corridor. The place looks tidy but out of shape, with patches of peeling, faded white paint over the walls. The piercing smell of detergent is midly annoying too, but you're used to it. Working in a research institute for so long made your nose almost insufferent towards these kinds of attacks.
You adjust your glasses, thinking. These guards are unnerving. Not that you are scared, they have been well mannered towards you until now. But having two rifles this close still makes you uncomfortable.
You turn a corner at the end of said corridor, where another guard stands in front of a slightly rusty, but strong-looking steel door. The guards exchange some brief looks, then the one standing in front of us takes a step to the right, letting us free access. The soldier on my left steps before me and keeps the door open as we enter.
Behind the door lies a small, cellar-like room. The space itself is almost empty, save from a writing desk, a couple of shelves full of dusty books, and two wooden chairs. Everything looks old here too, and not as well kept as the rest of the facility you saw. Perhaps this is just a spare room for occasional needs, who knows. It surely looks like that.
Seated on one of said chairs, behind the desk, a black-haired scientist eyes you. At least he seems one, judging from the white coat and the typewritten badge pinned on it. "Dr. Gears" is this man's name, apparently.
As you sit down he gestures the guards, who promptly exit the room, leaving you two alone.
The assumed-scientist's brown eyes keep staring at you for a couple of seconds. Then he speaks up, the boredom evident in his tone.
"So you are the researcher who asked to become part of our Foundation."

8chanmania 28 - Board Champions
Alright you cunts. This is it. We already have Yuuka in there, we already have Chen in there, but hells fucking help us if we won't get a third candidate into the rooster. Question is: Who? We have two nomations per board.
Characters with existing models:
YUUKA and CHEN are already barred from entry because they won previous manias.
Edit Competition Thread.
Since there's at least 3 editfags on this board I thought this might be fun. People post a character to be cut out and used/a template to use/an idea for an edit and then the editfags make and post their best shot at it. Can't do anything for a prize except the satisfaction of winning though.
We need people to say they'd be up for it, people who want to make the recommendations and people to judge who's was the best edit.
What do you guys think? Anyone interested in taking part?
No, not that one. Just a thread for rabbits.
To get some stuff rolling: Whatever happened to Seiran and Ringo after LoLK anyway? Did the Lunarians allow them to return to the moon, or are they stuck on Earth? They could always team up with the folks at Eientei, at any rate.
The Origins of China and Sakuya
Flandre and Remilia were (most likely) from Europe, and Patchouli, being an "old friend" of Remilia probably comes from the west as well. Koakuma is just a familiar of Patche.
We know that Meiling came from China, but unlike her compatriot Seiga, Meiling had no particular reason we know of to come to Gensokyo, so chances are she either was "sucked in" when the faith in Youkai in China vanished, or she was picked up by the Scarlet Devil sisters while the SDM was in transit to Gensokyo (or she did indeed have her own reasons for moving there). Also, there's this entire dragon thingy with a side-dish of rainbows, but that is probably just to emphasize her Chinese-ness.
Sakuya is a more interesting case. She's a human in a mansion full of immortals who insists upon her own mortality and humanity. At the same time, she regularly kills or at least cooks humans so Flandre can have her meals (Remilia is implied to suck blood directly, although she is a messy eater), her time-manipulating abilities mirror the Stasis theme of the Lunarians, and Eirin appears to be suprised upon meeting her, Sakuya apparently isn't her real name but one given to her by Remilia, and she carries silver knives said to be particularly effective against supernatural entities (including vampires), Akyuu implies that she also may be from the outside world, and that Sakuya originally was vampire hunter who joined Remilia after getting her shit kicked in by her (based on the silver weapons).
But what's your theory regarding the two? Meiling has little background info as she mostly just serves as a comic relief akin to Cirno. Yet Sakuya's history seems to be deliberately kept ambiguous.
CS:GO modding for TouHou
Before you ask, CS:GO is a great game to mod TouHou in. Not only do you have quality high-ranking aimbot players, fat weaboos who are too poor to afford Touhou, and plenty of guns from the TouHou and CS:GO game to chose from. But you also have potential for quality gaming sessions with players all across the world with the benefit of Steam support.
During your ritual to venture to Gensokyo, one of the candles tips over, and the resulting failure to uphold the von Schweinstein anomaly causes you to undergo a temporal dislocation as you are sucked into the magical wonderland.
Thus, you enter Gensokyo as a little kid, perhaps seven or eight years old.
Which 2hu do you run to while desperately hoping not to run into a hungry Rumia or a bored Cirno?
/2hu/ time machine!
So I was lurking around Web Archive and I found out that they saved the state of our board on 11th and 15th October 2014. All the threads are saved and viewable too, and there is even the first post ever of the board. Nice!
However much they might look little cute little girls on the outside, most 2hus can be rather creepy if they so wish it. So, post scary/unsettling 2hus; bonus points for ones like Shimmy or Lily White that you would not normally find threatening in any given scenario.
Hypothethical Worst-Case Scenario: Hollywood plans to make a 2hu movie
How would they fuck it up, and how badly?
Real-life adaption or CGI instead of mongolian horse pictures?
Shoehorned in Western characters (well, except Clownpiece?
Complete disregard for background material like with Ringu?
Home along on a fridey night, /twohoo/????? Now get the fuck in here!
but most important of all...
>ur 2hu (post pics)
Don't bother making more of these threads, just post in it each Friday.
What happened to the cast of PoDD?
People pine for the return of Mima and Yuuka (again) but what happened to Yumemi and her crew? I'd be much more interested to see what they're doing on this side of reality. What I wouldn't give to read a doujin where Sumireko discovers their clandestine plot to open a portal to Gensokyo or something like that.
Doujin games in Steam, its happening!
It is out.
Potential 2hu crossovers
Tekken and Blazblue are featuring a bunch of crossover characters, with more to be revealed. Nintendo just registered a new Smash title. Given that Touhou is getting more 'mainstream' with titles on consoles and Steam, could a 2hu girl appear in any of these titles? Which would you want to see?
2hu Meets MtG
Do any fairies here play MtG? /tg/ is having a thread right now for having the different boards be represented with EDH (Commander for newfriends) decks and pitting them against each other. Since I remembered seeing pic related and making a few Touhou alters for some of my cards irl, I figured why not suggest this board in addition, and some anons agreed.
Basically, what cards in the game do you think could represent 2hus that we can make a deck from (the commander/theme is Karona Superfriends, so any card goes)? Think along the lines of Marisa being represented with Jeleva, a female wizard that steals spells from opponents, or the Fairies of Light being Vendilion Clique.
Touhou on Steam
HSiFS is now listed on Steam.
Do you think we'll see the other games appear as well?
Another month comes and goes - it's time for another rabbit rabbit thread!
When you wake up on the first of the month, if the first thing you do is say out loud "rabbit rabbit rabbit", you'll be blessed with good luck for a month!
Just take it easy my dudes and never let anything take your smile away!
I hate youkai. I don't conisder myself a youkai, I'm actually an Oni for real, well almost. I will be when I live in Japan though. Right now I'm studying japanese, distillatiom and I'm following Onido, the way of the kishin. This is why I hate youkai that know 4 drinks and order them all the time, sake, shochuu, suntory, BEERU MOTHERFUCKER. I'm actually trying to become an Oni for real unlike all these faker youkai. FUCK YOU /2HU/
So my question is, how good are my chances of becoming an Oni for real?
Yukari is bored and turned your wardrobe into a gensokyan portal over night. When you wake up the next morning you find [your favourite 2hu] sleeping beside you.
What will you do?
What is she going to do when she wakes up?
What are your parents going to do when they come in?
2hu and meme magic
2hu is a huge meme and occult magic defines Gensokyo. It's clear that events on either side of the Great Hakurei Barrier have an effect on the other side.
Is ZUN practicing meme magic to influence world events? Or is he just unwittingly channeling the natural energies and egregores of the etherworld into cute girls we fall in love with?
inb4 lel Yukari visits ZUN we already know that
One month draws to a close as another begins anew - it's time for another rabbit rabbit thread!
When you wake up on the first of the month, if the first thing you do is say out loud "rabbit rabbit rabbit", then you'll receive good luck for a month!
Hope you've all been taking it easy and having a good time!
The end of January, and the start of the Chinese New Year! Time for a rabbit rabbit thread!
When you wake up on the first of the month, if the first thing you do is say out loud "rabbit rabbit rabbit", then you'll be blessed with good luck for a month!
It's been pretty peaceful on /2hu/. Let's hope things will pick up from here!
It's not just the triangles.
Hecatia Lapislazuli is the most powerful 2hu according to ZUN. While she may not be the toughest EX boss, her very nature seems to indicate a power that goes beyond mere danmaku. She may have unseen but powerful influence over the realms of men and gods. In other words, she's the Big Cheese. The Illuminati.
My knowledge of the Greek Hacate is admittedly cursory. I mostly know her from depictions in pop culture such as Sandman, God of War and D*sney's Hercules. In all those, her three bodies weaved the threads of fate, and all men and gods were bound to their decisions. That seems to fit with 3 worlds being chained to her. Some pagans and wiccans still worship her, and one wonders whether the Spirit Cooking and other blood rituals that go on in the halls of power are being dedicated to the Hecate.
Oh yeah, Hecatia holding the Earth in her hand implies that she controls the planet.
LoLK came out just around the time meme magic was being discovered. I'd figured 2hu had magical occult properties but the symbolism in Touhou 15 was more on-the-nose. Clownpiece's attire makes her a flying metaphor for the USA. And that kinda makes sense, what with her wrecking foreign countries because she enjoys it and her master says so. Who could be the master of the USA besides the Illuminati?
Oh and don't forget Hecatia wants to flood Gensokyo with immigrants. I don't know what her endgame is but I don't trust her for a second.
Also where's her Earth body? Is it someone we know?
