I learned Japanese so I could read Touhou doujinshi, but after a few years I lost interest in Touhou.

holy shit how did you go about doing that?

>> No.14330616

Touhou is ripe with story opportunity. I definitely wish I had learned to draw because I have load of ideas that simply cannot make their way to paper.

>> No.14330631

A very slow ongoing process using grammar dictionaries, regular dictionaries, and scanning through manga and lyrics with dictionary (and dictionary tool) assistance. Also by listening to and deciphering the lyrics of hundreds of songs.

At first I used Touhou doujinshi and Touhou doujin music for all of my study material but started branching out later. The process was atrociously slow for me and if you are serious about learning you probably want a real learning method.

Less so than anime, but nonetheless:
>found amazing metal bands like Demetori & Blankfield
>found 5+ awesome covers of "U.N. Owen Was Her?"
>2hu led me to spend my last 25 Saturdays watching Weekly Touhou Roulette on Twitch
>did I mention doujin metal?

So, become a writefag? I'm artistically challenged (a 2-yr-old could draw better than me), but my writing ability is awesome.
>I have load of ideas that simply cannot make their way to paper

Touhou is a fun series of games that gave me a waifu, gave me tons of amazing fan art, gave me tons of really amazing music to listen to, (some of which I listened to for years before even knowing what Touhou was) and made me realize what probably the best fictional setting in the entire world is.

By playing the games, I realize that the general fanbase actually don't play the games. If they do, it's usually just EoSD, PCB, IN or they'll be interested in whatever new 2hu eyecandy is released.

By trying to understand and enjoy the series as much as possible, it caused me to loathe it. The spiral gets worse when you take note of things ZUN did wrong.

>or things that don't fit your headcanon?

A major problem is how he references things into his characters. Since usually, Eastern media portrayals of Western concepts are flawed at some degree it's not surprising he does the same.

Then again, it's his universe and his choices on how he blends characters. I just see it as strange so throw in the Western stuff without realizing that its importance is based on region. You understand what I mean, right?

I'd actually prefer if people played the games, anon. If they did maybe they'd be more tolerable.

I don't go to MotK either. I'm not fond of forums at this point.

I recently started reading up on Buddhism because of it. (I like looking into stuff thats present in games, vn's, etc i enjoy)

Now I am in an existential crisis. Fuck Buddhism, fuck 2hu, fuck my curiousity and fuck the Dali Lama's book that caused this.
>Through logical analysis we can determine that the self exists in dependence on the mental and physical aggregates...
>In other words, the esistence of the self can only be posited in reliance upon the aggregates.
So if I'm reading this right. "I" dont exist. If it werent for the physical world, and my desires, I wouldnt exist.

I really dislike this idea.
Does "I think therefore I am" refute it, or is that just another desire to maintain the illusion I exist?

>> No.14346368

Doing philosophy on /jp/ is a bad idea.
But all it's saying is that your 'self' is based on your physical and mental parts both.

>> No.14346415

It just depends on what you mean by "I" and "self", if I understand those short quotes - perhaps he's just saying that if you were the only thing that existed, there would be nothing to call your "self". No biggie.

If you want some deep despair, you can look at the people who say that even though you're thinking, you don't "exist", because you might just be a possibility - as real as a dream, although with no dreamer. For example, right now I am imagining a man saying "I think therefore I am". Is he lying? (Is it then impossible to imagine "a truthful Descartes"? Have I just described, in words, a literally unimaginable thing?) I could imagine him thinking, if that would make it better. If I cease to imagine him, is he any less real? And what if I told you that, in fact, I never imagined him - that he only existed in your imagination of my imagination? Are there "degrees" of "unreal"ness? If so, then since imagination can nest infinitely, so that the degrees go up infinitely, what are the odds that the thing you think of as *you* has degree 0, instead of degree 3 or 78 or seven trillion and five? And why, after all, does there have to be anything "real" - can't all of this unreality get along perfectly fine without it?

You can answer those questions however you want, or not. No matter what answers you choose, I guarantee you that some dead guy has written a book about it. If you want my advice, skip it all, because you can't change it one way or the other, and after a certain point you stop even being able to make any useful progress. Socrates was saying "I know nothing" long before any of these copycats were masturbating over how *much* nothing they knew, and what *type*.

I completely agree. I used to consume all sorts of material on philosophy until I realized it doesn't matter and it's probably best to just not give a fuck. Now I've reached some sort of form of balanced hedonism.

I always wondered why anything exists at all.

I'm an Asian and was raised in an Asian country where aspects of buddhism are present daily, and frankly I don't get why some westerners make a big deal out of it. It's just a set of moral compasses like other religions, e.g, if you're Christian you are taught to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

It used to be a convenient tool for rulers to teach peasants, kind of like How to be a responsible citizen for dummies, but not so much now that there are social science fields such as psychology/sociology that are a lot more in depth.

>> No.14347546

I get I cant change it, but I dislike the idea of not existing. I like to think I exist and I am my own person.

What's my self without them?

I was just curious about it because of the Buddhism vs Taoism stuff. Also the rules in Christianity and other things were just "God says so". Ok, if you dont believe in God the system falls apart. Buddhism however has bullshit (I dont believe in reincarnation) but the argument made for "I" or my self not existing, wasnt based on something dismissable like god.

Tons of doujin music, including my favorite song ever and it's also made me do a lot of art. I've really enjoyed 2hu. I'm not very good at the games tho.

The music is the best, it's what I really dreamed about when it came to gaming. It inspired me to play pieces on the piano and hopefully make it to a concert hall within 2 years. I also think Touhou filled my heart a little with false love which helped because I hate american girls these days, so there's that.

A seemingly endless supply of good music. Makes it kinda hard to discuss it with other people, but that's what /jp/ is for I guess.
