What is the thing with Touhou fandom? Every Touhou fan I've asked have either tried the games once or twice, or never played them. But still they're "fans", fans of what?! Sure I get it if you really like some franchise because you enjoy a game, a TV series, a manga, a movie or whatever. But the Touhou franchise isn't anything but games and the "story" (if it can be called that) is ridiculously thin and shallow, there's nothing in them that would provide a basis for the fandom that is seen everyfuckingwhere today. Are people really becoming such aspies that they become "fans" of a game franchise despite not having played the game, just because they've seen cute pictures of manga girls and some IOSYS flash movies?

>> No.11991826

They just want to belong to a community.

>and the "story" (if it can be called that) is ridiculously thin and shallow

There's actually a large amount of interesting lore if you care enough to dig into it a little.

But does it really bother you that much that people like cute 2d girls?

>> No.11991829

I like Touhou because of the cute girls, fan stories and discussion, and Gensokyo.

>> No.11991844

Every Touhou fan I spoke with is a huge STG fan.

It's called a biased sample. Of course both kinds exist, but you only meet the ones you associate with in the first place. I don't mind my bubble one bit, and if you mind yours, you probably shouldn't surround yourself with idiots.

>> No.11991884

>But does it really bother you that much that people like cute 2d girls?

Not at all. What bothers me is what seems to be people jumping on a bandwagon because of just having seen... pictures? Fan made pictures and flash movies of characters in a game they've never played? Feels to me kind of like a self-proclaimed "nerd" who dresses up in Zelda cosplay and get piles of merch and shit but never even played the games... "oh look at this picture of Link, he's so cute".

They could at least put some effort into it...

My thoughts exactly friend. a Large majority of people I seem to come across seem to know little to nothing about the actual series itself, but rather know a couple popular songs and think Flandre is best 2hu because U.N. Owen is the McRolliest song.

It's a damn and utter shame that people like these exist, but there is a nice group of people who do actually put more than 30 minutes into the game and put lots of time and effort into it. Which is reassuring and makes me happy people like this exists.

We have "primaries" and "secondaries" for this exact reason. Just try to ignore the secondary shitheads that lurk mostly everywhere outside of places that aren't /jp/, and you're in the clear. Good luck.

So lets just ignore that someone could be a fan of the manga.
Or the music CDs
some people are fans and the only game they play is soku.
its why we have the system
Primary = Plays the games
Secondary = Doesn't play the games
Tertiary = IOSYS baka baka games 2 hard my girl is the cutest xD
Quadrinary = "I don't know what that is, I just like this one character I found."

What about people like me, who really don't know too much about the lore, but play the games every now and then, maybe few times a month, just for the gameplay?. I love the music and probably know most if not every track from the series, though. Would I drop somewhere between primary and secondary?

>> No.11992644


Not that unusual. That's the stage that people reach when they've gotten tired of the story and lore and just play the games. Most superplayers are like this. Some even mute the music.

This stage also happens when you've liked STGs since forever and you just play 2hu like any other STG.

We used to call people like this tools. I hate it when people claim to like something simply for the purpose of labeling themselves.

Take a look at most of the shitty boards and newer posters. They invent things like board culture through ratings systems, popularity polls, and memes. They fashion an identity for themselves even though the reason they're supposed to be here is to abandon all identities.

>> No.11993061

It's instinctual for humans to divide into groups and then proclaim their group superior, even if deep down they don't like what their group stands for or believe it is the best. People on anonymous boards create and exchange memes and board jokes as a way to prove to themselves and others that they too are part of the group. It also provides a self-esteem boost to people "in the know" (aka oldfags) to see someone who isn't (newfags) and either insult or educate them. It's also the same reason some people hate crossies, even ones that don't shitpost. They are part of a rival culture and thus can be seen as defiling the sanctity of the group, or diminishing the "in-the-knowness" of non-crossies. The fact that boards segregate themselves using things like memes and in-jokes is just a consequence of how most humans work.

>> No.11993790

No, I agree with this >>11993487 anon. A big part of touhou for me at least is the universe. A lot of people say the plot/lore is thin and non-existant when really I feel that most of it is just implied. That's the fun part though. Having long discussions on the motivations of certain yokai or how a certain mechanic in the touhou universe works, it can all be pretty great. Not to mention it serves as a window to Japanese mythology, a topic completely foreign to a lot of people.

Mostly this.

I downloaded and played all the games up to ten desires but didn't want to expend time on getting so good at them that I could actually beat any of them (except PCB) on anything higher than normal. Too many ragetears and too much rote memorization for me too actually be decent at the game.

I still enjoyed the characters and the world of Gensokyo though, not to mention ZUN is a master at orchestration, I love touhou jazz arrangements.
