For me it was a couple of years ago. It was during the time when the remedy for shitty /a/ threads is a 'touhou hijack'. It would be initiated by some tripfag with that pic of Marisa with the words'Touhou Hijack, LOL!' in it. At first I thought it was stupid, killing a thread with a fuckton of touhou fanart, but then I saw this on one of those hijack threads and somehow got mesmerized. You could say she was my first touhou.

Since then I've been scouring the net for more, until I learned what it is about, played the games, etc.

A friend of mine showed me the game. It was one of the first games for Windows, quite possibly EoSD, but I'm not sure now. I didn't really get into the games until PoFV, and did not really care for the "franchise" and characters until /a/ caught up on it, though.

I saw them for sale at a convention while perusing other doujin games, so I bought a few of them and was immediately hooked. Six or so months later, IOSYS took the world by storm, /a/ caught on, and I sat back in my leather chair, sipping some expensive scotch with my pinky extended, chuckled as I saw my new passion gaining attention throughout the fandom, and said, "I was doing it before it was cool."

My former roommate kept bugging me to try this game that was, according to him, "the hardest game ever made", I eventually caved and played PCB, I got hooked, but never explored the series, just PCB. I never visited /a/ either, so when /jp/ was created, I took a look for shits and giggles, and when I saw a touhou thread I was like "Holy shit, people actually know about Touhou?"

>> No.1381908

I got into it about three years ago when I browsed pooshelmer because of it being a partial Rozen Maiden board. I downloaded the PCB demo, loved it. The Touhou 1-9.5 torrent soon followed along with the music and doujins. I browsed /a/ more often because of it and soon left pooshelmer when it became unbearable, then /jp/ after split.

Yuyuko was my first favourite.

>> No.1381926

I was searching some booru for pictures, then I found some Flash game where you were Reisen with a scary manly face and you had to shoot Hong Meiling or something.

A few days later I asked /a/ what anime it was from, and they told me to kill myself, obviously. But then they finally told me it was Touhou. I googled it, found DoujinStyle, and played some of the games

Just downloaded one of 'em from the Comiket stuff available on Winny years ago (don't recall which one), I remember laughing at the terrible artwork and wound up enjoying some side-scrolling shooter much more.

...And after all these years, the art is just as bad as it ever was.

No it isn't. It's worse. Some PCB drawings were half-decent, buz ZUN has gotten progressively shittier with each new game.

I became aware of it via desuchan, but I didn't start playing it until it started taking over /a/. I saved fanart for a while, and I don't really recall what motivated me to actually d/l a torrent of TH1-9.5.

Looking back at my disorganized, non-renamed images, the first several Touhou pics I saved were all Sakuya, which is funny because I don't even like her very much now.

Years ago I was browsing 4chan's torrents board, looking for good doujin music or games. (I had gotten a couple of games by French-Bread and I was looking for more of the same). I stumbled across a torrent for Super Marisa World, not knowing what it was.

I thought this Marisa girl was cute, but I had no idea what she was from.

Then I came across MegaMari, played it, and found it is the HARDEST FUCKING GAME EVER but I was entranced by the characters. "Remilia Scarlet?" I said. "That has to be the best name for a bad guy (girl) I've ever seen."

I did some Wikipedia searches, and found Pooshlmer (both its image board and wiki.)

I downloaded and played the games, starting at EoSD and moving my way up from there.

(It was a special moment in my Touhou history when I saw the characters for the first time in canonical artwork. "Hey! That's Marisa! Hey, that's Cirno! Hey, that's RAY MOO HA KOO RAY!")

>> No.1381997

I was introduced into the touhou series just by lurking at 4chan for days and there was all this talk about touhou. I wikipedia'ed the word and the rest was history.

I like most of the characters now, but I will not play any of the games anytime soon.

Wow, I didn't think this thread would go anywhere.

I remember in 2004 one of my classmates played some STG with lolis, but as far as I can remember it didn't look like Touhou. I think there were male characters.

Never really encountered STGs again until the Touhou threads on /a/, so I'm a latecomer.

I feel a bit embarrassed to say this but, I... I got McRolled once, really liked the harmony of the incoherent screams and searched for the background music and found U.N. Owen was Her.

I was in college. Guy across the hall had Scarlet Devil, Cherry Blossom, and Imperishable Night. This was before IN had a complete english patch. Got em from him and have gotten every touhou since. He also always had touhou music plaing from his computer.

Sauce on this? Couldn't find it using the english on it.

I've known about Touhou for about 4 years, and I still don't see the appeal.

It looks like a mediocre series of games with a lot of doujins to me, and nobody ever really talks about the games themselves or says that they're all that great. Just hard.

Ikaruga introduced me to Touhou, but when I pretty much stopped playing video games as much, I still stuck with the Touhou doujins and music.

I got one of first cd with GGXX in my country.
"Wow, holy shit i just got internet let see what people think about this."
And on some forum i met some guys talking about 4chen or something.
Also there was this pic set of girls with ridiculous hats...

I was browsing /t/ and saw a torrent posted for a game called Imperishable Night with lots of comments. So I decided to get it and try it out. Though it wasn't another year or so before I realized that it was Touhou. In my mind it was just a fun shooter with lots of moonspeak.

I was looking for Suigintou images over at /touhou/
At first I thought Touhou was some sort of bullshit fanmade Rozen maiden.
But thenI say this image of Flan and I wanted to know more

I played the EoSD demo when it first came out. It was a mediocre demo, but I noticed that it had nice music for a doujin game. I tried the full version when it was relased, and thought it was a bit better, again mostly due to the music. I was mostly impressed when I found out that one Japanese man made the game on his own.

Half my life has been about shoot-em-ups (and vampires and Castlevania), so of course I'd end up liking Touhoe.

You have far too many pictures of this character

I saw someone beat Mokou on Youtube without losing a single life. It was the most amazing thing ever, and I wanted to be just like that person.

I beat Mokou recently. Hard mode is Normal mode.

Someone posted Sakuya on /a/ and thought she was pretty cool, then searched for the games and the rest is history. This was on early 2006 I think.
