It could be, if your version of the apocalypse occurs in the 21st century.

Same if you are the single lynchpin for all the technological advancement. Utsuho is the only one with the ability to handle nuclear fusion in Gensokyo. That makes her utterly indispensable once Gensokyo becomes reliant on nuclear energy for all its technological and medical breakthroughs.

>Touhou wasn't made with Western fans in mind.

Zun has a bizarrely inconsistent relationship with the western world. On one hand, he said in some interview or another that "Shanghai Alice" was chosen as a name because he intended to mix up western and eastern elements in his games (I'm paraphrasing, but the gist was that) and at least EoSD was almost aggressively a blend of both, but on the other hand, he sure doesn't do anything to meet his western audience halfway. You can't even order his games through mail, let alone there being official translations or anything.

You misunderstand his intentions. He wants to put Western elements in his games, but he's not particularly interested in them being easily accessibly to non-Japanese. Completely separate things. And no, it's not because he's racist or anything, it more likely doesn't occur to him or he's too lazy.

Not really, doujins today use print-on-demand services (or "vanity press" as they used to be called). You can have the copies printed as the orders come, if you ever get any. The only extra risk comes from recruiting the translators.

Obviously a Polish doujin doesn't make sense unless the author is Polish himself, but at the very least there should be an English version of everything. Half of Earth's population can read English. Leaving that audience out is just asking for obscurity.

Most languages have spread past their country of origin, to be used somewhere else with regularity. This hasn't really happened with a majority, and eventually we'll probably be left with English, a single dialect of Chinese, and possibly French or Greek.

Its ludicrous to conclude that languages will always be used in an area, no matter what.

>> No.3223592

Yeah the wiki has a lot of made up shit that nobody actually thinks. The worst one is in Orin's article.

>Because there is another character named Rin [Rin Satsuki], fans often refer to this Rin as Orin, her nickname.

OR MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE IT'S HER FUCKING NAME DISPLAYED IN THE GAME. 99% of the fanbase has no idea who the other Rin is and if they do they don't give a shit because she never existed.

I'm too apathetic to fix anything though. There's probably some kind of editing etiquette that I don't want to get mixed up in.

I've given up on editting wikis long ago. It only takes one retarded mod (read: all of them) who thinks that your change wasn't necessary to revert it and warn/ban you. Let sleeping dogs lie, I say.

Geographically, its spread to smaller islands, meaning its spread at all, which is more than I can say for some other languages. The possibility of it becoming large is minute, however.

Okay, so Greek was a bad example. Just using what I've heard being spoken around here with some regularity. Seeing as I live closer to the Greek district than any kind of Polish district this influenced my decision. My point still stands that one day we'll all be speaking three languages.

But some of them are really, really bad.

>However, because conditions in Gensokyo still resemble feudal Japan, pants are hard to come by and must be made by a skilled tailor or imported from the outside world and assumably are much more expensive than skirts. This may make pants a status symbol, and given Mokou's status as a daughter of the old Japanese aristocracy, it is likely for her to only naturally insist on wearing them.

I mean, this would be an interesting view if just posted on /jp/ or whatever, but putting it up on the wiki under Fun Facts?

>I mean, this would be an interesting view if just posted on /jp/ or whatever, but putting it up on the wiki under Fun Facts?

The cancer killing wikis are people who treat them as just another message board, posting whatever random idea crosses their mind instead of what they should post in a wiki - hard, verifiable (or at least widely known) facts.

See also: TvTropes, a great idea ruined by all the people arguing with each other for entire pages about whether Worf should count as AssBaller or a FuckWaddler.

I agree that the Wiki is poorly run, due to people mis-interpreting doujinshi, but what else is supposed to happen? We can't just omit it altogether.

>In Utsuho's theme, "Solar Sect of Mystic Wisdom ~ Nuclear Fusion", the intro and the verse sound like Yumemi Okazaki's theme, "Strawberry Crisis!!", and Kanako Yasaka's theme, "The Venerable Ancient Battlefield ~ Suwa Foughten Field". Some people says this comes from the fact that Kanako gave Utsuho the power of nuclear fusion, which is related only with Yumemi's physics in Touhou Project; Utsuho is empowered by the two.

Yes, this is undoubtedly the truth. Thank you, wiki.

You can most certainly omit stuff like that.

>Flandre was born in 1508 A.D.
I often wonder where they get this. Did ZUN say anything about it, or is it shown in the game somehow? I mean, using the Japanese Wiki isn't really what I'd consider super reference.

>> No.3223690

Here's a good identifier of a shit entry: it has the words "some people say" or something similar in it. If you don't have an actual source, it's probably just bullshit.

In some cases we can let sourceless stuff to pass if it's a fan phenomenon that's too big to ignore and too obvious to challenge (like, I think it's okay to point out that Reisen the lunatic bunny is one of the sanest characters in the series, as she's kind of defined by that) but in general you should refrain from posting anything that looks like speculation or hearsay.

This is why I only read the translated profiles and in game dialogue for information. They seem to love putting in useless information about each one which is then used as fact by faggots arguing power levels.

I'm fine with that sort of stuff. At least it's usually a hard fact you can use to distinguish her from the other touhoes.

The wiki really needs cleaned up. So much useless shit needs to go, and the actual facts need to be cited. There is absolutely no reason this can't be done, given there isn't actually that many canon sources. The fact that it's run by pooshlmer and shrinemaiden folks is the real problem. Damn, I may actually attempt to rewrite some pages now, it's that embarrassing.

>> No.3223714


no, but its a pain mentioning every bit of material ZUN releases as my preferred sources, but I'd say we can trust thing like the profiles more because it directly from ZUN as opposed to ZUN writing a character's opinion about another character.

Character related memes should stay. Cirno the nineball, Reisen the useless bunny etc. They are as much a part of the character as official material.

Well, it'd be good if ZUN actually decided, as opposed to giving us two completely different views. For the most part the major conflicts are "Oh god how did Alice become youkai", and such.

I haven't actually read material in relation to Koishi yet, as she doesn't really interest me. I'll take a look now.

Akyuu's unreliable by admission. Aya is reliable in a "she's reporting what she had seen" kind of way, but she kind of fails all journalist standards.

ZUN seems to love characters who outright make stuff up. CoLA is the grand example, Kourin's theories on the nature of universe are the more awesome the more they are contrived.
