>it went from a wacky fucked up story to some "please take me seriously..." garbage.
This. That kind of tripe only works on the retarded...which unfortunately there is plenty of in the "fandom".
Idiot artists that consider themselves writers who use the characters as skins for whatever the fuck they feel like are incompetent idiots that think they can slide in and out of "canon." Either know what you're doing or fuck off.
For that matter, fuck everything in the "fandom" that does this.
-Not respecting the source material.
-Noone is in character, except for selective moments so they can pretend they're not actually shitting all over everything.
-Using said skins of the characters for whatever they want, be it having them raped or having them killed.
Yeah they're totally touhou 'fans'
I hope they all go to/stay in Kancolle and never come back.
