But didn't touhou pretty much start like this too? I mean, simple characters who had pretty much no deep aspects whatsoever.

It all started with shallow characters which the fans could think about them the way they wanted to.

There were character interaction at least.
With kancolle, the characters have no interactions with one another.
Even in the official manga, character interactions are very basic. The same joke is made over and over. Aside from a couple of the more notable characters, almost all siblings can be pretty much seen as having a single personality.

I'd care, but I also know most don't.

Most sister ships wear the same clothes but I thought it was still easy enough to tell them apart at one glance.

Of course, sister ships being really similar historically, should also be likewise in the game, so there's nothing wrong with sister ships looking similar, as long as it's not too similar, and their personalities differ. But such cases are actually quite few.

So all the fans need to do is to fill in the character interactions as well as the deeper aspects of their personalities. Not much difference.

I agree with you to some extent, but I find Kyouko and Kasen likeable. No real opinion on the blatant monstergirls so far, I'll have to see more of what they're like if they show up in some of the official doujins.

I believe 13 is where he took a page out of bad ecchi series and started directly gender bending historical (mythological?) figures into "moe anime girls"...ugh. May or may not be related...but it's just something I've always found to be a lazy and hack writer thing to do. It's like.."NO EXPLANATION! THEY'RE A MAGIC GIRL INSTEAD OF A GUY NOW!"
Never really liked "Rule 63" when it pertains to official works instead of a "just for fun" fanon thing, I always have that nagging feeling that I'm reading a bad fanfic since I'm familiar with many of those characters beforehand.
(I imagine this opinion is likely unpopular, whatever. Character in question, the only one as far as I know) http://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Toyosatomimi_no_Miko
This TL;DR may or may not be part of your own reason for finding something "off" though.
(Before someone brings it up, I'm aware of characters like Suika being based on Shuten Doji and what not, but the keyword is BASED.)

I'd also like to see more attention given to the PC-98 era. Might be saving their return for when interest is low in the fandom. Characters exclusive to the first game have almost absolutely NOTHING on them.

Agreed, I like Kasen...she's one of the few Touhous that seems to have a moral compass. (Course I haven't read all of it as of yet...)

I don't know why many people seems to don't realize this, but the reason TH12 and 13 looks "off" than the previous games because it's fucking religion-based. Of course he'd add something like buddhist nun, priest, onmyouji, etc and since they're based on real thing that still exist he can't just put silly dress or hats on them, and even he still did that to Byakuren. She's just as frilly as your typical 2hu.

But there are people who think that the design are shit for no reason other than "ZUN is declining". Maybe they should complain about how he took religious and historical theme, which actually limit some liberty in design.

That's how I interpreted it. Japanese copyright law is discretionary. He knows there's a Western fanbase big enough that it's being downloaded but he's not pursuing it at all or making any effort to license it. That sounds like a nod to me, or at the very least he's looking the other way.

I really don't think he seeks to be a cultural icon really. He seems like one of those dudes that knows he famous, got popularity and people know him, but really don't give a fuck about it. Like he is grateful that he got all the fans and love and support but he don't let it get to his head.

And we (as in those of /u/ who often go proclaiming yuri to be the purest form of love) can't even attribute it to the lack of guys in Touhou either because even Kancolle's yuri doujins are far lewder than Touhou's.

Though given the fact that Kancolle, despite being a non-H game, is being hosted on an otherwise R-18 site, I'm inclined to believe that it's H doujins that have a higher tendency to be scanned, because I don't see either Kancolle or Touhou as having any more potential for lewd or non-lewd. Of course, that Kancolle's hosted on an R-18 site might motivate the lewd doujin artists more than the non-lewd ones.

I haven't masturbated to 2hu since kancolle happened

That doesn't show in their design so much though.

I masturbated to kancolle when I played it, but I got bored of playing it, and somehow that carried over to the girls. Now the girls seem boring too.
I should have never played it, then I probably would feel ambivalent towards it.

That's bullshit and you know it. ZUN may lack talent and skill, but he sure as hell is creative.

Neptunia doesn't even have many doujins to begin with.

Go look at how the ship girls were designed again, the accessories of each ship girl correspond to all the different parts of their historical counterparts. Even Shimakaze got a justification: >>>/a/103027357

It's just school uniforms and plamo.

The Kancolles originate from WWII, so they have their stories too. It's just not anything you can really take seriously when the ships are girls.

I prefer them

Can I use my Isuzus to modernise Murasa so she can sink ships even more easily?
