Now that AE is over, I can finally give a report on the panel I had on Friday. It was everything Sakura-con should have been, and will be next year. It ran smoother, all the akwardness from before was gone, and I even had friends bust into the room randomly as seen by http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpR7h-q3U_E

Overall, since I made sure to check to see how many people in the room didn't know about Touhou this time, only 5% of the room hadn't heard of Touhou. It should be interesting to see what that number is at Sakura-con next year. Also, has my picture shown up on /jp/ yet? Someone came up to me and asked if he could take my picture to post here, and I'm currently regretting I didn't take the time to do something special for you guys like force myself onto one of the Touhou cosplayers.

Ah well, once a proper video is out, I'll share it with all of you guys.

It wasn't that bad. Once it broke down into the free play, everyone was just sitting around gaming, having fun, and listening to Touhou music. Then again, it was also at 9pm on the Friday so there were hardly any high school students or younger on con grounds at the time.

Old snake, and a few other people ran/rolled into the room with toy guns, fired them a few times, and then ran out. They had wanted to charge up front, but the middle lane was occupied by a camera so they just ran in, shouted, and ran out. All the people standing by the door were AE staff who knew it was happening and enjoying it. I enjoyed it too despite knowing nothing about it beforehand.

Might as well address the points brought up in that thread.

The Japanese thought we were Americans, they had mentioned it was an explanation panel, both of the cosplayers were female with the Reisen going on to also cosplay Aya the next day, and then things went a lot smoother this time. Probably because I had the presentation done before I even entered the room this time as opposed to working on it during the setup time for it.

I think there's a level of stupidity in prancing, cosplaying a Touhou character besides Rinnosuke when you're male, etc., but quite honestly, you're not going to be able to share your interest in Touhou with that girl sitting next to you on the bus.

At least they did something compared to all the times /jp/ had mentioned "Oh, we'll be there and we'll shout out memes endlessly!". 5 people in the room had no idea what Touhou was, and by the end, everyone who remained just hung around, played the games, and discussed things with each other.

I can't rage at Touhou panels. Honestly. Youtube and Deviant Art will do more damage then any convention could hope to achieve. With Deviant Art it's just a small set of fans (well, compared to other fan art) but the Youtube following is pretty unstoppable at this point. You've already got 13 year old girls reading out the wiki of each character's information along with power level arguments over the comments.

Touhou is still a niche crowd and it'll probably cap, but it's sure as hell no elite secret club (if it ever really was) so expect to see much worse in the future.

I suggest you read both papers with a more critical eye in the future then.

As a start, the Province's headlines are an eyesore; the way they are phrased tends to tread much further into sensationalist territory than those of the Sun.

The articles themselves tend to read more like a collection of gossip than a piece meant to inform or prove a point. Even I were to set my objection to tone and sources aside, I frequently encountered inconsistencies within an article.

The Sun isn't a particularly fantastic paper and to a lesser degree it suffers from a lot of the same faults, but it is still superior to the Province.

The Sun published two articles; the first was slightly less wince-worthy, but it was not particularly stellar either.
