So, is ZUN cool? I get that he created a series we all know and love but as a person, is there anything particularity decent about him?
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.
He is an inspiration
he is just a drunkman who needs money for his daughters and ugly wife.
>>20444906He wears cool shirts.
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.
He creates waifus.
If it wasn't for him, idk what I'd be obsessed with.
>>20444906He seems like a cool guy from his little omake texts and from his public appearances.
>>20445052his beer sucks and his fashion sense is shit just like his drawing skills. he is the bethesda of japan, all the success of his creations is thanks to the fan's contributions ala mods=fanart.
>>20445160His wife is aya.
>>20451447Sorry, *very* ugly wife.
>>20451405I find both bethesda games and touhou games to be fun. Your opinion is not fact.
>>20451405THIS!Overrated by autists and nothing else
>>20452039Autists or not, they make up a huge fanbase. His work gained attention for a reason.
>>20451405so mediocre that only mediocre people like itoutside of 5ch and jp his 2hu shit is totally unknown
i'm not liking all this zun hate of late, if you have nothing good to say don't say anything at all
>>20452255probably just baitsignore them
>>20445052>Fashion as hellWhy did he stop wearing Aya's shirts?
>>20452076Pretty muchI find it funny how his fags think he is popular or that 2hus are liked outside weeb caves
Post your ZUNs.
>>20451405Literally 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.>>20452076Touhou 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.
>2hu fag triggered by a reality check threadlol
>>20452800Who are you quoting?
>>20452847You must be living in a different universe then.
>>20452847Based anon killing delusional fags like its nothing
does zun support the lgb community
>>20452800they are outcasts of /a and /vg for a reason after all
Wow sure smells like crossboarders here.
Was this thread moved here from /v/ or what the fuck is going on
>>20451474So what does mamizou classify as, please file and tag your answer properly
>>20452076>outside of 5ch and jp his 2hu shit is totally unknownAnd even if so, does it matter? The size of the fanbase does not define what Touhou is, their dedication is what matters
>>20452895>And even if so, does it matter?Yes/thread
>>20452884this doesn't excuse not going after the willing though.
>>20452855More like a different board.
>>20452800they are the basement dwellers of jaypee
>>20452884i pop into jp every now and then mostly to lurk but realized i don't know much about zun as a person; just wanted to see if anyone else did. /jp/ seemed like the best place since it's pretty much /2hu/
fucking crossboard shits
>>20452800Who are you quoting?>>20452884I hope so, this is really weird.
>>20452800who are you quoting?
>>20444906ZUN was raped in the summer of '02
>>20452800who the fuck are you quoting
>>20452867probably not considering he hasn’t given in and made his characters dykes already
>>20453368implying Tenshi and Shion don't eat each other's peaches daily
>>20453409This kind of shitposting is unhealthy
is he a multi millionaire
Yes, I'm delusional for liking a particular series of video games. I'm delusional for liking the music and the character designs. I'm delusional for thinking Touhou porn is a fucking miracle.
he is severely autistic, but so is nearly all of japan's population, so i guess he's just the average nip desu
>>20453727lesbianism is unhealthy
>>20453876Really? I have never been to Japan, but from what I've seen ZUN seems pretty outgoing.
He's pretty coolHe's a strange mix of wisdom, humility, autism, and sadism
i dont know shit about zun but i do know that none of you have a life
>>20454132Wheredo you think you are?
>>20454018>he was a worthy man once upon a time, but that was long ago, before the revision
>>20454361Who are you quoting?>>20454445I know who you are quoting, but it would be easier to figure out if you replied to them.
>>20454361Who are you quoting?Seriously janny nuke this thread kudasai.
>>20454930wait wat!? is Zun a goat?Why is he playing Umineko?
>>20453858If liking 2hu makes me delusional, then I don't wanna be sane!
Alcoholic faggot must die
>>20467442Uncalled for man
>>20467442Good thing ZUN isn't a faggot then
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.
>>20444906sure, why not?
>>20444906Him and Tarn Adams are probably the two independent developers I look up to the most.
>>20452800Did we ever figure out the source to this quote?
This thread feels like it came from /v/, is janny retarded?Stop bringing /v/ cancer here, there seem to be a lot of threads like this here lately.
>>20470560Umm le yikes sweatie xDDDD
>>20444906no he's faggot
>>20470560look at the post numbers above, they're not consecutive. The thread was created on this board. Yes, new /jp/ is that awful.
>>20471372I can't believe it.
>>20471372And it seems like there's barely any mods since the 4channel split.
>>20451405Sure, 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.
>>20451447I thought his wife was Mamizou?
>>20444906he fucked my wife reimu so fuck him
>>20475657He didn't, but I did.
I don't give a fuck about him.Just release the Goddamn 17 installment already.
>>20478450So did I.
>>20444906>So, is ZUN cool? He loves beer, so yeah
