[Context: someone named Marisa with a profile pic from the japanese franchise Touhou talked shit about Doomer Boards, and one of the members got salty about it.]
I feel so sorry for the Japanese guy who made Touhou; you make a hard as nails bullet hell shooter on a shoestring budget with a VERY decent soundtrack while drunk that has a universe filled with SOUL that's thematically steeped in Japanese folklore. You add a diverse stylish cast of characters who have charming and eccentric personalities that are mostly morally grey and some are really badass (I mean there's a loyal house maid who doubles up as a bodyguard for a vampire mansion that can literally freeze time then throw hundreds of knives at you before unfreezing time.. but can just as easily serve you tea).
The niche game spiralling into success is really heartwarming for me, Japanese musicians (<3 Shibayan) make amazing rearrangements of your songs with female singers who have amazing vocal ranges like 3L, hundreds of fangames get made across different genres and an anime and tons of manga get adapted from it.
Meanwhile in the West it's just taint and despair everywhere.. pedophiles, sex pests, groomers, stalkers, predators and ideologically driven creeps try become your characters so they can use your characters' faces to appropriate and pass off their unacceptable chaotic evil personalities and fetishes as "morally grey".. alongside the usual "social democrats" invading what excuse there is in the Western fandom to try assert ideological control over it really just adds up to Touhou being lowkey the biggest disconnect between the East and West I've seen, ever... you can't even blame anyone for hating it the moment they find out it exists when that's the only reaction you can trust.
I tried really hard not to write this post, but wow, fuck you "Marrisa", thank you for further vilifying a franchise that really didn't need further vilification. Kudos.
