Vtuber shit will kill itself by simply being popularized more on the EN side.

When greasy NEETs who now feel still rather comfy watching it day in day out.will be flooded by normies left and right, vtuber corpos more censored in content due to rise in popularity i.e. attracting SJWs that will cause legal issues like family/advertiser friendly ones. They will be forced to adapt, or go freelance but then with a new name / model because their overlords won't let them use it. With that they will become much less popular, entertaining or both, loosing audience till they are just as damaging to Touhou as boatsluts were supposed to be.

Vtuber cancer is kinda like bronies back in the day, we also thought that horsefuckers will make your day worse for the rest of your time anywhere online and irl, but the hype died out eventually and thank fuck for that.
The vtuber thing will die out same way, the higher you go the harder you fall.

Already happening, people are getting canceled because they follow vt*bers/are vt*bers who like R18 loli porn on their corporate twitter accounts and post their mostly-loli doujin collections according to my friendguildie who literally cannot fucking shut up about them now. Should have just stayed as yet another shit general on the jay instead of attracting an audience who thinks anyone who so much as knows the name of Rustle should get a public beheading. Pretty much all that's left is for yet another japanese company to confirm to western ideals and fire anyone who so much as talks about "the evil pedophile fetish", only in this case I almost feel bad for the people who watch these random youtubers as they've clearly built no small part of their identity on being women of taste if they're able to talk about and link porn that much under a corporate thumb.

I don't truly care though, both because I feel no sympathy for the companies stupid enough to reach out to the audience who literally cannot feasibly make you money even if you're the biggest anime on the block, compared to the Japanese who'll buy literal fucking bottletops for 5 dollars if they have a character they like on them, and also because this h*l*l*ve shit singlehandedly killed the board. At that point you might as well have just tried to shill to China, at least they love weebshit and can get you money if b*teshit and that new Zelda clone are anything to go by. Not like these companies think enough to realize they'll be walking into a beartrap, but better to get some honey before you get your leg snapped like a twig than nothing.

I agree, however, a good portion of what is now normalized as “Otaku” is corporate in nature. This article for 2006: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/14415584/ns/business-world_business/t/otaku-japans-anime-obsessed-enthusiasts/ talks about how corporations managed to successfully capitalize on otaku culture and turn it into a money-making machine.

On what planet do you live on? Touhou is still insanely popular in Japan, that’s why even vtubers are shilling it (see https://twilightnewspaper.wordpress.com/2020/05/05/coolcreate-reveals-touhou-project-x-hololive-collaboration-album-releasing-may-17/amp/))
Maybe it’s not as popular as it was with overseas fans but that too be expected, it’s not catered to them (hell half the games aren’t available legally in English).

You're way too pure, anon. A lot of them are children who grew up on /v/, /pol/, or /a/. Look at what happened with the Flanfly thread from the other day where they sealion'd harder than the Sallyfag. Hell, look at this very thread where it got almost a hundred posts because they're so desperate to defend the "epicly adorkable" anime girls they throw money at, they have to SCREAM and SHOUT about how WRONG you all are! With a little phoneposting on the side because why the fuck not, at this point.

Seriously, the idea of "touhoufags" being a designated group that innately hates vt*b*rshit that they need to "fight against" is just pathetic. If this were any other board there'd be pushback too, that's just what happens when literally hundred if not a thousand people come to spam on a board, doubly so since we probably don't even have half of that amount of posters anymore. The type of faggots that create some mysterious mastermind in their heads when they're called faggots as a way to cope are the kind of people we don't need anymore of on this board. But it doesn't matter, since meido's clearly sided with them, and they're free to attempt and force their wills down our throats in any thread that criticizes them until they hopefully do some illegal shit that gets the whole series of generals wiped from the board, or preferably site, entirely. Otherwise, they're sticking around and won't fucking shut up about it.

I've stopped visiting the Jay on the regular for a while and came back as a regular recently. In my inactive period I'd just come for the new year threads cause they were too good to miss with the shobon chat room becoming more populated. It has always been the place to come to take it easy and have fun.

To my surprise it hasn't changed much. Some flavor of the season stuff and my personal favorites still stick around: the Japanese bird cooking spaghetti, gachi, flan fly, blogging threads like this one and the miscellaneous touhou image dump threads with funny conversations.

I'm still enjoying myself just like I used to back then and it's good for my spiritual health. Joining the work force changed me somewhat but I'm glad to see that deep inside I'm still the same person and the Jay reconfirms that.

Yeah, there's kinda no point to talking in the gameplay threads for more than a few here because we already did that and don't really care for scoring.

He's right that secondaries are a fucking huge issue, and honestly I'm not even sure if it's going to get worse with the aforementioned plague, but the days of rushing to clear the games or a ton of new people getting into it are long long gone.

Also, anyone who says that 2hu is irrelevant now probably only watches highlight clips of their favorite vtubers and doesn't really know anything about anything about what's happening anywhere else.
The moment ZUN lets his guard down for one of the very few things he allows commercial-wise, corporations dig it up instantly. There's already been FOUR gacha games since Cannonball, from four different companies. Regardless if Cannonball itself was a failure, that's something else. That's more than any other gacha, even Tales only has three. Do note that it hasn't even been a year since Cannonball came out...
Yukkuri letsplays are still around as big as hololive in Japan, especially with children. To this day they still get hundreds of thousands to millions of views really fast, and they've been there for far longer than vtubers. Random children in school are found humming Touhou themes and playing it in their electone. Even in one of the 2hu streams there was a section highlighting a bunch of fanart from children. Even IF (big if) the fans now slowly die off, 2hu basically has a lifeline of new fans, artists, and worshippers in waiting.
And don't forget even vtubers glorify Touhou. Fubuki and Marine are one of the most popular of them all and both of them talk about 2hu quite a lot. Marine herself is a legit primary and plays 2hu games on her streams often.

Touhou's life is still long and won't die anytime soon, no matter how much you wish it. I still remember when Kancolle was this enormous wave and people started incessantly 2hu doomposting, and oh how is it now...

I'd say it's more because they're a somewhat new thing that blew up in popularity, you know how much some people hate new popular things by instinct and how vocal they tend to be. I have to admit that I used to be like that until I watched a stream and it wasn't as bad as I expected.
Every community has its own rotten apples, and it's pretty easy to see how the fag who was going on about how he's going to kill 2hu in this thread was just a bored falseflagger. There are indeed quite a bunch of unashamed crossboarders in the hololive generals but as far as I've noticed, there are many people who don't forget where they are in them too, the main issue is that because it's such a highly popular thing, many retards have also joined in and that happens for pretty much everything.

This is the price you pay for the ability to post without an account. This is why anonymous imageboards are the shit-stained bottom of the internet barrel. You have no ability to effectively gatekeep.

But then you add accounts and you get people sucking each other's dicks all day. I'd say that anonymity lets people be more honest so it's still the better choice, even if that honesty leads to acting like an idiot for attention.

The fact that they stay contained in their few generals makes them pretty much a non-issue, despite how sometimes one of those rotten apples leaks out and starts whining about the board, or how often they spam new threads after hitting the post cap and end up causing a few old threads to get archived. Despite the stubbornness to not make a well-deserved new board for them, moderation is still doing a decent enough job of keeping them contained and getting rid of (some of) the garbage in their threads, namely /pol/ shit and doxing attempts.
That's what happens when you force an userbase the size of a small to medium-sized board into a single general. Like many other people keep saying, a new board for vtubers would solve all of these problems.

It does seem like there is a lot of blind hate. Let people like what they like and so on.

I can probably write an entire 10000+ word essay as to how Touhou is still going strong after 25 years even though it literally has zero official advertising.
One of the things I can rationalize is this.
You hear it all the time. "Our fans are the most important part!". "Our fans are what keep us going!".
But in most cases, while that is part of the truth, that's not exactly all of it. The fans revenue and their "free advertising" is what keeps them going, not the fans themselves. When that's gone, sooner or later what people used to clamour for will eventually wither and die. There is a lot of factors for what keeps a product/series/whatever going, the fans are only a cog in the machine.

That is not the case for Touhou. In it, ZUN is the machine and the cogs are all fans. While, at first, that may seem like a more brittle and less adaptable way of how a fandom works. After all, when the fans die, what's left?
But that is not the case for what Touhou is, or what ZUN has made it to be. In a normal case, when a cog stops, the machine breaks. In Touhou's case, when a cog stops, the machine is still functional and only gets rusty; it's only a matter of time until it gets cleaned, one cog turns and everything runs again. This is for many reasons.
One of them is because ZUN is barely affected by money, fame, or anything of the sort. He makes Touhou because he likes making it. He doesn't pander. He will keep making Touhou even if the fandom isn't as big anymore, until he gets sick of making it. This has obvious advantages, but it also connects to another important aspect.
Touhou, as a franchise, is essentially run ENTIRELY by fans, due to ZUN's stances on making derivative work.
In a normal case, if something becomes unprofitable, that something gets shut down. Even if someday, fans look at it and "remember that?" and make fanwork, it'll likely never come back, even if sometimes there's massive push for it. It takes money and risk to do such a thing, and most companies don't do such risks.
That is not the case for Touhou. Even if Touhou's popularity simmers down, all it takes is one spark, one popular fanwork, and the machine runs again. ZUN is still making games. You can still make any fanwork you like. You can still enjoy what has transpired before. Things have changed, yet nothing has. This sort of "stagnancy" is part of what makes Touhou so immortal.
As you say, dedication is a large part of it, but as to how people get dedicated, that's more complex. It's something I'd have to rant about even further.
There's a lot of reasons as to how Touhou has become what it is today. The type of content it brings, the lack of pandering, the dedication of its fans, what advantages good music brings over other types of content, etc. This is just one thing I've noticed.

>> No.27875620

Good for you, but sadly you aren't part of the majority. Just look at reddit's system that enables and encourages conforming to a particular mentality with those up/downvotes for an example, that shit is everywhere and has always been everywhere.
Also, for someone who claims to not be a coward you sure look anonymous to me.

>> No.27875674

Yes, despite how sometimes one of those rotten apples leaks out and starts whining about the board and then immediately gets swatted down by the mods, causing no further harm to the board. If you're concerned about how those people behave, that doesn't change much because /jp/ has seen a massive decrease in ability to take it easy in the past few years, possibly as a result of the great newfag immigration from 2016.

Case in point, some random girl retired because of something she said half a year before she debuted came out where she shat on her going-to-be employers, and instead of shitting on the company for being shit enough to be shat on by someone whose literally going to work for them, or the girl in question for shitting on the company they liked, they decided to spend the next several weeks yelling at another random company that had been marked as "the enemy" as it was somehow their fault. Kinda like that bike image but unironic. The point is, these people are ravenous wolves and don't know how to actually feel things that aren't some kind of hatred, and even then they don't know how to hate unless it's focused. Even if it's on the wrong thing. As any kind of introspection would cause their minds to crumble to dust. I've seen it then with that example, and you're seeing it right now in this thread with "the touhou fags" being the cause of whatevever the hell it is this time.

In contrast, vt*bers and g*cha are not made with love, they are carefully designed to take as much money as possible off the paypiggies.
