When you think bad western art, you mostly think of stuff off DeviantArt and FurAffinity and those sorts of sites. These are websites were ANY sort of criticism is seen as trolling and condemned viciously by the community. That atmosphere has maintained and redoubled on itself for years too. This leads to art being absolute fucking dogshit but receiving nothing but praise, so the artist doesn't improve, and western art stays trash.
The cultural differences don't help. West is all "everyone is great and special and if you try you'll succeed!" where in the east you gotta earn and keep that success and need to be constantly proving and improving yourself.

It's a recent development. If I go look back at ancient fanart, it's usually pretty poor quality, but it's much more similar to bad japanese art than the current abomination of style is. Mostly I think it's a big game of telephone, where instead of learning from anatomy and then stylizing, a certain kind of style has been copied over and over to the point where people aren't learning from reality anymore, and thus it ends up really inhuman and ugly.

Given how the perfect possession incident hasn't been resolved (Jo'on and Shion had nothing to do with it after all) I doubt the current arc is over. I'm hoping for another team-based mainline game like IN for TH17 to get it done with.

>> No.19485949

Perhaps im remembering wrong but im pretty sure the Perfect Posession incident was entirely the doing of Jo'on and Shion. The Perfect Possession "Urban Legend" was something they specifically crafted too help abuse their abilities and they personally spread the rumor themselves (at least too start with).
And the honest most likely scenario is that the "arc" will never conclude because itll always remain as something ZUN can come back and toy with at some point when he feels like it. When you get down too it Touhou doesn't necessarily work in "arcs". At the very least, im pretty confident that's now how ZUN looks at it.

Fairies are pranksters by nature, anon. They are always like that. The reason she's a "memehu" was because she was such an unorthodox design for Touhou Project. Lampads invariably have the power to drive people to madness. It's in their mythology, it was not a lazy Reisen power clone. And it goes much deeper than that. Hecate, the Greek goddess Hecatia is based on, is one of the two goddesses (the other being the Roman God, Libertas) that inspired the Statue of Liberty. In fact, Hecate's crown and torch almost definitely mirrors the ones seen on the Statue of Liberty. It makes all the more sense considering Clownpiece has the same torch Hecate uses in her depictions and is in the exact same pose as the Statue of Liberty, further connecting her to Hecate. Hecate and Clownpiece's connection to the moon stems from the Greeks conflating the Egyptian god, Isis (God of the Moon and Underworld), with their own god, Hecate. Clownpiece isn't just some run of the mill wacky random design, she is as deeply entrenched in lore as most other major characters. Her clothes, pose, and ability all make sense when you connect the dots. Yes, in the end of the day she is just another fairy, but do realize that she is no ordinary fairy. She is the most complex and brilliantly designed fairy we've seen yet.

>> No.19493871

Wrong on all accounts.
Didn't have a Komainu yet, which was pretty strange, they're pretty well known Japanese mythical beasts. Even overseas people know about the whole guardian dog-like statue thing. Also who's the other cheerful dog? Yamabiko have some dog-like characteristics, Momiji isn't cheerful and is barely a character anyway.

She's a Lunarian goddess, Toyo and Yori are Lunarian princesses. Very different, and was kinda strange that we didn't have an outright god on the Moon yet. Also has a new and interesting ability, character, and heaps of plot importance, but I digress.

It's fucking Princess Kaguya, it would be insane not too include her.

Yeah, I know all that, but it doesn't change that it's all been done before and been done better.
I get that fairies are all pranksters, but that doesn't change that this has been done five times over now. I get that she kind has too have madness powers, that's what Lampads do, but that doesn't change that it's also been done. Christ, it's even a "if you look into X you'll go crazy!" thing too.
And really, why make her a fairy at all in that case? Make her a Lampad. Hecate is attended by Lampads, Hecatia is Hecate, but doesn't have a Lampad serving her, just a fairy with Lampad-like qualities. Why? Why does the Goddess of Hell and Magic, one of THE kingpins of myth, have a garden-variety Hell fairy as her go-to henchman? Why is she a fairy and not a Lampad?
Fuck, man, I never really payed the whole Lampad angle much attention, and doing so now just raises even more questions and makes this shitty 'murica clown even more of a mess.

>> No.19493928

Are you playing dumb? Clownpiece is confirmed to be a lampad. Lampads are nothing but fairies (nymphs). The only consorts Hecate has are fairies. The only thing that makes a lampad special from other nymphs is their magic torch. Clownpiece has all that and is wonderfully tied into the American flag through both the Moon and Hecatia/Isis/Liberty. Her eccentric and "lunatic" personality is nothing more than a poke at the torch's ability to drive people mad. Reisen's ability is more akin to causing illusions and hallucinations in a person's vision, thus deteriorating their mental state through the manipulation of radio waves and light waves.

Like I explained in >>19486655, arcs is kind of an inadequate way of putting it, and while ZUN does focus in on a particular theme for a while he has been getting much looser with that as you've said. The way he describes DDC through HSiFS is "answers too his previous works", so I guess maybe we could consider that the "theme". How it seems too go with stuff like the religion based works is he will usually only expand on something like that if he feels he can do more with it. That in general is how these sort of arcs come about. To be honest I feel like the next several games are going too be more dis attached from previous stuff and each other and just be their own thing.
You might be on too something with the "Outsiders" idea though. I dont think itll do much with the outside world (plus we already have a bunch of stuff that deals with that), but I think he is going too explore "Otherworlds" more. The hell subplot he's been setting up in the manga really feels like it might end up tying into a game. Paying attention too the manga is always a good way of getting an idea of where his mind currently is.

Not him but this should be common sense. Newer characters get shafted real hard because people are already attached too the older characters, and many artists have certain characters that they like too draw more often then others. Even still though the numbers arent awful, just not as good as the many characters people already have affection for. Not too mention many artist have moved too twitter and many people still use Pixiv numbers when talking about this kind of stuff.
Still isnt a metric too describe quality though. ZUN has put way more effort in into his newer games and characters than his older works. There is alot of objectivity in this. Koakuma gets some much art despite being a literally nothing character yet still gets more art than many new characters with great designs and so much more thought put into them.

Thats mostly true, however new characters are not shit because they get less art for the reasons I stated above. They are disadvantaged by default.

>> No.19494547

Exceptions cant exist? Even in terms of older characters being so overwhelmingly popular there are still some that simply arent (Letty for example). Even then, Clownpiece is not significantly popular, especially compared too older characters. Also being "boring" other than being very subjective is also not a metric you should use when talking about this when characters that are literally nothing midbosses are more popular. Lets not pretend characters like Flandre arent "boring" either with her complete lack of depth. Yet she is consistently one of the most popular characters.
Overall, can you really say that what I said early isnt true? That newer characters are simply disadvantaged because people are already so strongly attached too existing ones?

>Clownpiece is confirmed to be a lampad
Where? Cite it. Every source there I've seen has her as just a fairy, every scene has her acting like just a fairy, everyone including herself treats has like just a fairy. Not a Lampad-type fairy or anything, just a fairy.

>Reisen's ability is more akin to causing illusions and hallucinations in a person's vision, thus deteriorating their mental state through the manipulation of radio waves and light waves.
Reisen's ability is listed in IN as "manipulating insanity." Same for PoFV, SWR, Bougetsushou, and AoCF. Yes, she does it in a different way, and she can do other things with her ability too, but you're acting like this is some knockoff "oh well she CAN drive people crazy but that's just a side thing" sort of deal. It's not. Madness is what she does. Given what Clownpiece is based on it makes sense for her to also have madness-inducing abilities, but don't act like it's anything new in Touhou, which is exactly her problem.

I get what you're saying, but given that it's the only unique angle she has besides the awful design it's not enough to make her a good character. Maybe if it was emphasized more, but it isn't. For all intents and purposes she's just a playful prankster fairy. You can disagree if you want, I don't want to hijack this thread too much, but I really think you'd be wrong to do so.

That's true, but Sanae's still showing up pretty often, and you're right, this SHOULD probably be Hatate's game. I guess the idea is Aya doesn't want to screw with the moon anymore, and neither of the journalists really do ISC-ish stuff? Ugh, I guess.

It's the old 'murica thing, that's such a trope it's got a name. No, I don't know another character that combines all these things, but that doesn't make her good, unique, or likable.

Too add too what >>19495765 said, you can also clearly shoot too, so its almost certainly going too be a mix of StB/DS and ISC. Personally, I think it will end up being alot of fun.

I wonder if ZUN would ever even consider it. Phantasmagoria of Dim. Dream was a PC98 game and looking back too those games for answers is not helpful in the slightest, and Phantasmagoria of Flower View was technically supposed too be the last game in the series if I recall correctly. I think he views that particular type of game as a sort of "compilation game", too which he seems too have moved on too and prefers other types of games too fill in that roll (like the photo games and ISC). If were being honest it might also be preferable for him because Phantasmagoria's take alot more work too make (and he's busy enough as it is these days) and he overall just seems too enjoy making other types of games more.

Spinoffs have been a thing since Immaterial and Missing Power, stop expecting a mainline game to release so soon after the one before it. Plus, you wouldn't want a mainline game to be rushed and uninspired. If ZUN kept on popping them out year after year then the quality would drop exponentially. He needs time to develop ideas. Just be lucky were actually getting something instead of going on hiatus for a year.

You'd have to be terribly new to complain about TH17 right now. It's only been one year since HSiFS and mainline games have been on a schedule of "once every two years" for almost a full decade now.

>> No.19509648

Excluding ULiL and AoCF because theyre developed by Tasofro, we havent had a ZUN made spinoff for 4 years (last one being ISC). I think were about due for one. Plus HSiFS literally came out only a year ago.

One of the many reasons I respect ZUN so much is the fact that he gives no fucks what we think. The man can do whatever he wants and use whoever he wants.

>> No.19509964

I swear I remember a lot of /jp/ users complaining about Sumireko in the past two and a half years, but it seems it's lightened since then. Never understood the hate, I like the idea of an outside world character.

Hey now. Don't bring soku into this.

>> No.19510744

Sumireko is basically designed to be a certain kind of character that people will often find unlikable, in the youthful arrogant cynicism that she portrays, especially so because she's explicitly from the Outside World and so reflects more tangible and relatable traits to fans close to that time. Many people can't separate their dislike of a character's traits as though they were real, from their opinion of the character as a character in a story, so there tends to be a considerable amount of disdain for Sumireko for these reasons.

>> No.19510881

This. I'm sick of seeing countless soiboi modern developers bending over to noisy, overbearing fans. I like ZUN because he doesn't give these cunts the time of day.

This. Remember King Joffrey from Game of Thrones? Everybody hated him because he was childish, selfish, narcissistic and not very bright. However, that does not make him a bad character. Joffrey was not meant to be likable as a person, he was meant to be a weak, unlikable and childish ruler.

If it's more than a photo game than ISC then I'm expecting everyone from TD onward.

>> No.19524656

LoLK and HSiFS cast (and Jo'on and Shion) are pretty much a given as you've said. I expect that we might get as far back as UFO but we will only get Stage 6 and Extra Stage bosses. Kokoro might also make an appearance and lets not forget that Kasen hasnt made her Danmaku debut yet. It looks like Reimu will probably be a boss too going by the screenshots.

>> No.19524700

Since ISC was basically all of DDC and TD + some randoms I'm guessing that it will be mostly consisted of LoLK and HSiFS. Obviously Reimu and Marisa will be targets but I am also expecting Reisen and Aya or Cirno to return since ISC already had Sakuya, Youmu, and Sanae in terms of enemy playables. Since this dream stuff has to do with boundaries and ULiL/AoCF it's pretty likely that Kasen and/or Yukari will appear. Also, one of the clone Sumirekos might be a thing too. I just really hope ZUN adds Kokoro, it's her turn to appear. I'm honestly not expecting the Yorigamis because this game shows signs of being rushed out but, again, hopefully they appear.

Yeah but they weren't the latest playble characters in the games that ISC covered (TD and DDC). The reason that Youmu, Sanae, and Sakuya appeared at all was because they were in TD and DDC. So, following that pattern, it is likely that we'll see Reisen/Aya/Cirno.

14.5 came out before 15. How high are you? Her name is Sumireko Usami and she's a chunni outsider with a high interest in Gensokyo and the ability to use ESP. She's very autistic with things regarding legends, magic, and the occult. It seems in this game that she wants to take pictures of Gensokyo residents in order to prove to her peers that she's not a mental patient. Also, she has the ability to travel to Gensokyo in her dreams so there's that. Everyone hates her because she reminds them of theirselves.
