Is Touhou still popular? Or... is it dead.

If it's dead now, it's partly because the top images
Google turns up show the suckiest, frilliest facet of the fandom.
Potential fans were turned off by it and thought, "WTF is this gay shit?"

Why couldn't image searches reveal the cool side of Touhou to newbies
instead of the faggy, frilly fairy side?

>> No.12164226

Peter Payne used to post Touhou every day. Now he's posting Kancolle every day and Touhou like once a week.

I wish Kancolle took over so we could get a small cozy and slow updating group of threads hidden in between pages 4-10 to talk about the same redigested topics again and again while tards sperg about their new fads.

That's one way to look at it but futa isn't even canon in Touhou.
This reminds me of the nerd on tumblr who said everyone in Madoka was transexual or a transvestite.

Kancolle music is shit.

Shitty voice clips.

And there's not even that many songs to remix in the first place.

This is one of the reasons why Kancolle will be long forgotten soon enough, because of this and the shitty gameplay. The only thing going for it was "hype" and character designs.

I don't get this. Yeah, it's okay to like it and play it and draw porn of it and whatever, but forcing oneself to arrange such shitty music is just... weird.

It takes considerable skill to make Kancolle music sound not shit since the source music is trash, and it's a skill many doujin musicians do not possess.

Not only are you wrong about why Touhou is all-female, there is nothing wrong with sex or sexual desire. You should stop perpetuating religious propaganda. This isn't the middle ages any more - there's no danger of a public acceptant of sex. Condoms exist now.

I believe that part of the reason is that Kancolle is super unintuitive in terms of sinking, air superiority, and boss-reaching requirements. A lot of people I know took a lot of time in the past, researching how to play the game properly. Also probably to figure out what Kancolle is.
