Dedication and passion.
Helped and helps an entire generation of creators to shine.
Father of two children. Remember he's Japanese.
He didn't succumb to Gachashit and is still attending Comiket.
Makes his own beer.
Fashion as hell.

Touhou at first was just him trying to fund his beer personification research.
Now that it's been complete and he has two half-beer children, he has no need for Touhou anymore, which explains the recent work quality.
If he and his beer wife go for a third brew, he may have to try harder again.

Post your ZUNs.

>> No.20452701

Literally not even the same thing. There is a massive difference between mods for a game and full on derivative works you are allowed to make money off of. Also its more of the success of his creations is tied to his well designed characters, excellent music, and everything else that attracts people into making derivative works. Fan contributions are more of a result of these successes and not the other way around. These days its more of a mutualistic relationship.

Touhou and Otaku Culture as a whole is far bigger than our little bubble here. Touhou is something that everyone seems to underestimate the actual size of. At least outside of Japan. In Japan the size of the fanbase is pretty well established but here in the west we are so fragmented that its impossible too gauge how big it actually is.

He's a really cool guy but if you want to truly understand him and his outlook on things, you should listen to his interviews and read his descriptions and extra commentaries that come with the game.

I happen to share a lot of general outlooks with him and opinions on the game industry. I'm too lazy to type these out though, you should look them up yourself. Simply immersing yourself in the Touhou fandom will help you get an idea, as I actually like to read all his extra comments and text files that he puts in the games.

I met him in person too. He's a pretty cool guy to actually care enough to go to America and meet up with foreign fans.

Sure, the success of 2hu is primarily due to the fanbase, but what distinguishes ZUN from scummy western developers like bethesda is that ZUN fully endorses the Doujinshi nature of his franchise. He simply creates the games, peppers in some lore and then allows the fans to fill in all the blacks he deliberately left, like a specific character's characterization and how these characters would interact with one another. ZUN created a creative sandbox for creators around the world who share an appreciation for the unique aesthetic of Touhou, something that only ZUN could've created.
