Think about it: Gensokyo harbors only those things that survived the influx of "common sense" (Akyu, intro to PMiSS) which turned the Outside inhospitable for youkai, and there is no purity on the Earth. The Lunarians have the advantage of having been directly able to preserve then grow upon knowledge that was lost long before Gensokyo was settled, and they're incredibly long-lived.

They're fighting the Wonder Twin that didn't turn into water, except replacing "animals" with "gods." It was to be expected.

If SSiB was a doujin, it would be just another case of "eh, who gives a damn". But it's the Big Damn Official Touhou Manga. The shit that happens in it is the first canonical portrayal of a danmaku fight in comic form. ANd it's fucking lame.

That doesn't explain why people are constantly whining about how awful the storyline is when the actual games certainly don't provide better. I rarely find canon Touhou dialogue funny other than Inaba, but at least the Stardust Reverie=sweet part made me laugh.

>> No.2070716

Generally ZUN's writing is a hit & miss thing. He can make good and interesting storylines, but sometimes he spews out something that's either boring or it doesn't make much sense. EoSD being the pinnacle of his literary achievements, having the best plot development, interesting dialogues and the ending actually made me cry, while SSiB develops at a snails pace, having too many characters that don't do anything. Seriously, why is Eientei even there? Other than having some relation with the moon, they don't do ANYTHING in the manga. Also, it's kind of sad to see Eirin as the brain of Eientei and Kaguya being her lapdog that only follows her around.

But that's kind of how it's always been...

The moonbitches are so plain and boring that I can't even remember their names. Their only apparent characteristic is that they can pull new powers out of their ass and shrug off any attack.

But that's just because they haven't been given a chance by the fanon to have lots of doujins and hentai, or their own themes by ZUN.

Mmmm, I disagree but only on a contextual point. You're not always supposed to hate the antagonist, Touhou is a very good example of this as it always ends in a tea party. Are you saying we're supposed to hate Remillia, Yuyuko, Kaguya, Suika, Kanko, Tenshi and Satori?

I honestly feel sorry for ZUN.

His pride in producing Touhou is that he's been able to handle EVERYTHING in a given game by himself, from programming to composing the music to making the art, and still put out a successful product. But then the fan community took it and treated it like a Nijiura project, ala OS-tan or the Nijiura maids; where popular consensus creates character traits and personality, and thousands of people contribute to forming a cohesive vision. It's a messy creative process where a huge mob throws strand after strand of spaghetti at a wall and swarm over any that stick.

Because ZUN brings only a select few characters back between games, the differences between ZUN's vision of his characters and the fanbase's vision don't end up clashing very often. But then comes a projectlike SSiB, and suddenly the fanbase is outraged that their characters don't behave the same as in their (what it ultimately amounts to) fanfiction, or that power levels aren't as concrete as they had decided they were. What was meant to be a one-person project is now, as far as his followers are concerned, out of his hands.

Is it any wonder ZUN was against the anime?

There's different kinds of hate. The "good" kind is "man I can't wait to see them kick that cunt in the ovaries".

What I'm feeling is more along the lines of "man, those sure are some of the shittiest characters I have seen for a while, Zun's really losing his touch, I hope those bitches don't become popular because some I never want to see either of them again, actually it would be sweet if they were the first characters to be permanently killed because they sure fucking suck".

Yukari's powers have been "defined" for years, ever since Perfect Memmento. Defined in quotes because all it really said was variations of FUCK YOU CAN'T TOUCH THIS BITCH SHE'S FUCKING OFF THE HOOK I MEAN DAYMN.

One could ask why it's okay for Yukari and not okay for Moon Bitches, but that's missing the point. The point is that Moon Bitches are portrayed as ABOVE, not on the same level, as the previous over-the-top ultimate enemy, and that they have jack and shit for character. Yukari has an actual character, no matter how much of it is fan invention. Moon Bitches are just "let me pull a new power out of my ass with which I defeat you in one move".

Of course there fucking is, I thought I explained it clearly. If a villain is good, you're eager to see her lose.

I don't want to see the moonbitches lose. I don't want to see them AT ALL because they're such horrible wastes of ink. I'd prefer if they didn't even exist in the Touhou canon. Whether it's the shitty writing, the failed art, or a combination of the two, they're a narrative misfire.

So far we don't know that for anybody but Remilia. Marisa's there for the same reason there's been a Marisa route in any ZUN game - because it wouldn't be Marisa if she didn't meddle. No one knows what Yukari is doing. Yuyuko is probably just helping out with her friend's plan because it's her friend's plan and has no interest in the moon besides watching it while sipping sake.

Reimu went along because she was the fuel. Considering her complaint about "nothing happening," she went probably because she thought it would be an interesting experience. Just before or after her fight, she'll probably go: "Actually I have no interest in conquering the moon or such nonsense, so how about this.
