The Toho Vote results made me curious about /jp/'s interest in Touhou, so I made a quick survey. Once this reaches enough responses I'll reveal the statistics, but for now answer away.https://forms.gle/teAYJbjKZLo7UUDG6Also if you have any interesting charts, graphs, sorts, etc feel free to post them.
>>36855347Forms doesn't save your email or even require you to be logged in to do the survey. If you're so concerned you should already be using VPN/proxy anyway.
>>36855426yeah i just clicked it and realized you didn't need an email for it, sorry for being a baby
My IP address is in Vientiane, Laos OP do you mind giving my IP to everyone ITT so they can see it?
I'll post the stats once we reach 100. Maybe at every 100 mark if there's enough votes. In the meantime I'm gonna try to fish out some data related pics.>>36855439No worries>>36855451You got it buddy
>>36855544>Flat teen chest is keeping touhou afloat. Pick up touhou for being too cutesexy.Are we sure this was written by an AI?
>>36855315Sent. Hope your teacher gives you a good grade, anon.
>>36855544>Gengetsu's pink underwear supporst boner.It sure does.
>>36855544you should consider making a new thread for the announcement when you get enough responses so the results don't get lost in the weeds
I wonder if anyone has an updated version of this graph. Some anons in the Toho Vote thread were running stats on the poll results, maybe some kind anon could scrape pivix for the data?>>36856707I don't think that will be necessary. We're at 33 responses as of writing this and it has only been about 10 hours since the thread started, so the 100 mark should be reached in a few days. By then the thread will probably still be under half bump limit.
>>36861183Here's a similar graph from I don't remember when.
>>36861183>We're at 33 responses as of writing this and it has only been about 10 hours since the thread started, so the 100 mark should be reached in a few days.you just used up more than half of your ammunition, sorry friend
>>36861285Many thanks anon, I didn't realize blue_comment had all these stats>>36861389Now 40 responses as of writing, see you in a few days friend ;)
>>36855315I think you should've included a question or two about how much people play the games and consume other official content.
Woke up to an even 60, keep em coming!>>36863413Yeah it would have been interesting to ask about stuff like number of 1ccs and favorite spellcards now that I think about it. Oh well, maybe in a future survey.
bump!i want to see people putting in those votes since i'm genuinely curious about the results
>>36874523At 74 right now and I can tell some aren't gonna like what they see. By the way, on the off chance this somehow reaches 100 overnight, I'll include whatever responses manage to get in by the time I wake up.
>>36874579Can we see the results of the first batch of 30 incase it got raided by faggots
>>36874579inb4 everyones just into the porn and nothing more
>>36874579Is it full of vtube fags who don't know what Touhou is?
>>36874579Probably full of modern era fans.
90 and rising. At 100 I'll temporarily stop the survey to sort through the data.>>36874673I'll release the csv for those interested. It has timestamps for your viewing pleasure.
Setting up the visualization while waiting for the last responses.Just curious though. For questions with "Other" as a choice, would you prefer they be included in the pie charts or omitted and listed separately? The latter would require me to re-generate the charts in a separate program rather than just using screenshots, which I'm totally okay with.
Bumping for last few votes
Come on and vote you goofs, I want to see the OP release the results already!!!!
CAMON OP, post the fakkin results
OP post the fucking results or elseConsider this a threat
The results are in!Some quick observations:Unsurprisingly, music and animations are the leading entry points into 2hu. Official games/works is also quite sizeable.Music and character discussion is a big draw. However, I wonder if that's because some of you consider "I want to lick Reimu's armpits" as good enough discussion.Half of you are practically newcomers. The two PC-98 anons must have it rough.I kind of expected more than 50% to have 2hu as their favorite series given where we are.
More observations:Pretty unanimous idea for the definition of secondary, though I agree with anons who wrote in.I can't say I was surprised about the 18+ section.And the last section speaks for itself.
>>36888229I always knew that touhou was fun.
Here is the csv for curious anons: https://www.mediafire.com/file/j89lky21mfm6n90/jpTouhouSurvey.csv/fileI have a fun (read: stupid) collage idea for the long answers, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
>>36888229My typos on full blast for everyone to see aaaaaAAAAAAAAAA I'M SORRYSeeing fans who started in DDC era really makes me feel old...can't imagine being the grandpa who played during PC-98 years though.As for character discussion, most of the good convos only happen off site nowadays. But when it's here for once, it goes hard, so it makes sticking around this /d/ dump worth while.
>>36888219>Character and lore discussion = 2%Lorebros.... I don't feel so good....
>>36888324>>36888219Ah fuck I knew I would mess something upDisregard the original first page post, here's a fixed version. Don't fret lorefriend.Copying observations for anyone who cares:Some quick observations:Unsurprisingly, music and animations are the leading entry points into 2hu. Official games/works is also quite sizeable.Music and character discussion is a big draw. However, I wonder if that's because some of you consider "I want to lick Reimu's armpits" as good enough discussion.Half of you are practically newcomers. The two PC-98 anons must have it rough.I kind of expected more than 50% to have 2hu as their favorite series given where we are.
>I hope you (and the people who respond) have a nice day. I like this calmer part of the community where we can just share our honest thoughts.Sometimes it's easy to get frustrated in the Touhou community, so I think it's important to remember to take it easy and love a fun game for what it is. Maybe one day we can all meet in Gensokyo.Awww... thanks dude.
>>36888385I'm surprised how many people got into 2hu via official content and how little via porn.
>>36888385Kind of surprised how many people got into touhou post DDC, but then again 2013 was quite a while ago.
I feel like "What age did you get into Touhou?" would have been an interesting question. I know of quite a few that first discovered Touhou as children.
>>36888229>>36888385Interesting results, although not really surprising. I think "character and lore discussion" was a poor choice to pair together, consider the former can be simply talking about how cute X character is vs the latter requiring a more in-depth knowledge of Gensokyo. I bet the character designs are a lot of people's favorite aspect of 2hu. >>36888441You have to remember sampling biases. For example, no coomer is going to give a poll the time of day, so they wouldn't be represented.
>>36888219>>36888385Can the PC-98 guys get back here and expand a little on that? Like, pre 2002 you downloaded a big pack of PC98 games and Touhou happened to be in there? Or you got into it after 2002 but you went through the games starting with PC98.I'm gonna assume the latter and blame OP for putting games instead of just years. While I'm at it, the game "eras" is kinda arbitrary, DDC was eight years ago already so that's a pretty big window. Next time maybe just have it go down a list year by year"[ ] Pre 2002 lol[ ] 2002[ ] 2003[ ] 2004[ ] 2005[ ] 2006 etc
>>36888547Maybe split it into several questions-When did you get into Touhou-What was your first game (if any)-What was your first 1cc (if any)-What was your first lunatic etcSome of these other categories maybe could be broken down more too, or like Anons are saying, allow more than one option.
>>36888547I think just making the time spans equal would've been better. EoSD to StB is 3 years, MoF to HM is 6 years, and DDC to UM is 8 years. So early and mid Windows era has roughly the same number of responses as modern Windows for roughly similar time spans. The responses seem to indicate that people have been continuously getting into Touhou over the years, which make sense.
>>36888606I assume there was a big spike of people who got into it because of LoLK, but it's hard to say with time spans.
>>36888547>>36888581>the game "eras" is kinda arbitrary, DDC was eight years ago already so that's a pretty big window. Next time maybe just have it go down a list year by yearYeah it would have been better as a write-in question. I wanted it to be more compact by using game groupings (taken from Moriya Shrine by the way), but I can see how that causes ambiguity. If I do this again sometime I'll be sure to expand on the questions.
>>36888441To be fair I probably did jerk it to 2hu porn way before getting into it, but that doesn't mean it got me into touhou.
>>36888229Can you please post that gyate pic of the yama?
Probably useless now but I threw in a data point.
>>36888229Thought there would be more titties and ass anons
Was this thread on autosage or am I just hallucinating?
>>36888441I used to fap to touhou before I knew what it was, but it certainly was not what made me want to play the games.
>>36895872It's not on autosage
>>36888229"Touhou is reclining, though"
>>36888385>>36896848I should quote and post right
>>36888581>-When did you get into Touhou>-What was your first game (if any)>-What was your first 1cc (if any)>-What was your first lunatic etc>Its been 5 years and I can still only answer two of these.>It's not for lack of trying.
>>36896907It's ok I'm shit at the games tooI can only play PoFV decently, and that doesn't really count since it's basically made for multiplayer...;_;
>>36896907Have you tried playing MS? It's one of the easiest ones.That doesn't mean it's easy of course, but it takes less practice than usual to 1cc.
Long answers time! I had too much fun with this part.
I'm glad so many of you wrote in earnest.Also, keep in mind that I'll keep updating these images as more responses come in. Probably 200 for the next set of images. So for those who haven't voted yet feel free to do so.
>>36896887Well it lines up with the poll survey as well
>>36897771CoolThere's also minimal mentioning of youmu which also lines up with her recent win.
>>36897453I love how Canuck has been immortalized in this image, may his soul rest in peace.
>>36899918t. pig disgusting crossoid.
>>36897453>ZUN should make more dorks as charactersThe rainbow dork is a nice addition to the list of dorks in Gensokyo.That pic of Youmu is cute, can you post it?
>>36897453Fuck, should have advertised my 2hu like a shameless whore.
>>36888229I don't think that Touhou is reclining, but I felt compelled to parrot the meme.
>>36888229I think that Touhou is reclining and did not feel compelled to parrot the meme.
>>36903846>>36903927Hey, reclining is fun! You should try it sometime
>>36902118did you have a stroke
This thread reassures me in the idea that people share my view & ideals on the Touhou franchise. It's not often people get to speak out about how the whole sum of everything Touhou as a franchise has created & how much there is, has been, and will be to appreciate/be appreciated.
>>36907923I thought I was in the Type Moon thread for a moment and was trying to figure out why Hisui and Kohaku are sleeping next to Ciel.
>>36901015Here you go>>36907923I think it's easy to see how much this series means to people. Nowadays it can be difficult to talk so openly about your interests, so seeing all the positive responses is a treat.
>>36908173Why would Kogasa be on the moon?
>>36908173Why would they have an eggplant in the bedroom?
>>36908320Could you post the Aya crow please?
>>36908503Eggplant? Uhh anon wrong character. Ciel is not an eggplant. Thats Mashu
>>36888385>I kind of expected more than 50% to have 2hu as their favorite series given where we are.The reality is that more than haf of /jp/ are FACKING JUDASES that turned their back on Touhou when the fucking stupid singing shark appeared. And that's not counting the b*tefags, f*tefags and other assorted heretics.
>>36912927i was going to say fate fans arent that bad since its an older series like touhou, and then i remember the gacha game and die a little on the inside
>>36912976I'm pretty sure you get bullied off jp if you try to talk about the gacha.
>>36911875I should really post a zip of all the images when I have time later.>>36912927Having divided interests doesn't necessarily make someone a trend hopper. I'm sure there are anons who have contributed much to the community, but still wouldn't call 2hu their favorite hobby.Though I will admit we've lost many great artists to other series.
>>36896907>>36897220Days later, I've realized I wrote MS instead of LLS.Ignore the previous post, MS is much harder.
>>36912655I think anon meant the umbrella that is visible on the very top of the image.
>>36912927The vast vast majority of t*be simps are invaders and crossboarders. Visit any one of their threads and it's easily visible.
>>36913448Fortunately I played both and realized that LLS was easier. Even managed to 1cc it.Hearing the original Maiden's Capriccio and seeing the original Master Spark were pretty cool.The music is also fantastic (I just loved both of Yuuka's themes, Alice Maestra, Capriccio and Bad Apple). It's crazy how consistently good the music has been in Touhou for more than two decades.>>36888385>>36912927I think there should've been an for "One of my favorite series", since while it may not be the absolute number one for most, it might be in the top 3 or 5.
>>36914754Simps aren't even crossboarders, they are literal twitch retards who treat this site as second chat for their eceleb's streams.
>>36916073I have bad news for you anon, that's how pretty much all the other boards are now.
>>36915619>Even managed to 1cc itThat's good to hear anon. Every touhou fan should try their best to get at least one 1cc in any of the games.If you liked listening to the original Capriccio, you should also play HRtP, part of Capriccio is based on one of its songs.Also, excellent choice for Alice Maestra as one of your favorites.
>>36915619Alice Maestra is probably my favourite theme in the entire series.
>>36913188This would be an interesting question for another poll: what other game series do you play?I wanna see if there's a trend for that.
Here's a zip of all the pictures I used.https://www.mediafire.com/file/j086kd7p35hqwza/jpTouhouPoll_picturesUsed.zip/file>>36922563Anyone opposed to similar surveys in the future? If not, I could see this being an annual survey with new sets of questions each year + improvements from this first one.
>>36923782Not opposed at all
>>36923782Unironically a severely based anon and thread, as are all the anons in this thread. You put a lot of effort into this, and it shows. I showed up too late to take part, but I wanted you all to know this.
>>36923782That'd be pretty good.I really enjoyed seeing the results, specially the comments.
>>36923859Which comment did you like the most
>>36923795>>36923859Hey good to know. I'm already taking notes for the next one.>>36923825It's not too late my friend. We're at 158 responses so next set will come in no time >>36897509
>>36923887Fuck yeah, off we go.
>>36923870Any one next to reclining Kagerou
Waiting warmly for the next set.
>>36936271I expected it to slow down at this point, but there's still a steady stream of new responses coming in. Though if it outright stops before 200 I'll just include all the new inputs.
Bump for results
i usually ignore all threads that don't have big titties in the OP image since i'm too fucking stupid to use a filter, so i didn't see this one until now. please include big titties in the OP image for your next survey.
Please include the flattest of 2hus in your OP image next time.
>>36945128>>36945359I know some IPs are banned from bumping or just have a cooldown, but two replies in a row and no bump is a bit strange.
>>36945579i apparently don't know the rules of bumping anymore but the thread was on page 10 when i >>36945359posted, even though the guy above said "bump." i thought that was weird.
>>36945579I think some entire countries are banned from bumping threads
>>36945764Are you suggesting that mods might be actually doing something?What would prompt such a drastic change?
>>36945790The mods ban entire IP ranges due to abuse and that can sometimes prevent entire countries or regions from posting. It's the reason why you may see anons here complain about how they can't post images because they can be affected by a ban caused by another person sharing the same IP range. Try posting from a proxy or VPN and you'll see what I mean. Côte D'Ivoire and Ghana especially.
>>36945790>What would prompt such a drastic change?Did you faggots memoryhole Sallyfag or somethingWhat you see now is a result of them forcing threads to die since they don't bump.
>>36945790I used to regularly get the "you're banned" message with the expiry date being like three years in the past. Now I can't report posts half of the time. It's annoying.
>>36952107>>36952783Try using a proxy in Ghana or Côte D'Ivoire and see what message it gives you
Currently at 184. To tide the thread over in the meantime, I'm working on a chart inspired by Youmu's fair and totally honest victory in the recent poll. Will post it once it's complete.
Here's a timeline with all of Youmu's official appearances along with the poll results.If we take these rankings at face value, mainline game appearances seem to influence popularity more than decimal games or print works. That's true for most 2hus, but another (and perhaps more powerful) measure would be big fanwork appearances, which unfortunately would take way more time for me to research than I can spare.
>>36960394Does the gacha kusoge count as a fanwork? I think there was some buzz about one of its devs being a huge youmufag, and his faggotry rubbing off on her.
>>36964214Unfortunately yes, it qualifies. And since gacha has a low barrier to entry, whatever characters it gives special treatment are bound to rise in popularity.>one of its devs being a huge youmufagAre you talking about that dark Youmu alt?
>>36964214well yeah, corpo can be fans too
>>36964214Keep in mind that Youmu already was 3rd place before the gachas launched.Cannonball actually had a popularity poll via their user survey (pic related).I don't think there's any data on Lost Word but isn't Marisa usually the strongest character?Regular Youmu isn't particularly strong anymore but she somehow is still winning the current reroll poll on the Japanese wiki.No idea about Danmaku Kagura considering characters don't matter all that much.
Pretty much stopped at this point. I'm gonna give it one more day and if there's basically no change I'll work with what is already there.>>36970190No Reimu in top 5? I wonder if she would score lower in all gacha polls.
>>36970190What I want to know is that despite having no personality (literally) Koishi is always one of the most popular. Why?
>>36976026edgy knife girl is cute
>>36976026What skyrocketed Koishi's popularity was her appearance on the fighting games, what is it that makes her so appealing from her appareance on them is most likely her cute moves and expressions.
>>36976026The psychology stuff appeals to people's chuuni.
>>36976026Flanderization into a psychopath.
>>36976545more like Flandreization
>>36976026Popular characters have many angles for fans to project, imagine and have fun filling in the blanks. Koishi and Flandre can be so many things and have so many fun interactions with the other characters while loooooosers like Eika and Sannyo are.....just there.
>>36976646Excuse me I would like more characters like Sannyo actually.
>>36981417Sannyo is a prostitute whore no wonder she got such a low rating on the Touhou popularity poll
>>36981433Got a problem with slutty old ladies anon?
>>36976052this + there's always been quite a handful of koishi focused works beforehand so it was basically a ticking timebomband nowadays she gets a lot of merch so that only keeps her popularity steady
200 update incoming! I had to squish the graphs a bit to fit all the "Other" answers, but I think it benefited from a redesign.
Here's the part I think most of you were looking forward to.Somehow I managed to fit all the character related responses into a single page.
Survey is up again. Also, the responses are now visible since I don't think we're gonna reach 300.
Pictures used: https://www.mediafire.com/file/rf84bau49nzhi5c/jpTouhouSurvey200_picturesUsed.zip/filecsv: https://www.mediafire.com/file/0ec4z9vlrpwbd2p/jpTouhouPoll200.csv/fileOnce again, I appreciate the participation and candid responses. I think the lasting impression this series has on /jp/ speaks for itself.
>>36982959Dude thanks for all your hard work with this, holy shit. Above and beyond. /jp/sy of the week right here.
>>36982959Very interesting stuff, anon. Thank you for doing all this!
Thanks for this OP.
>>36982959Can you please post the octagon hakkero edit?
>>36986888Here you go, sorry for the delay
>>36982875>my 2hu is forgottenI can't believe I failed her this hard...Mark my words OP I will be there to correct this mistake in the next survey.
>>36992908No worries, thanks
>>36992938I am proud to be the only Aya representation besides the person who hates her.
>>36993304Ayaya! I love my cheeky, clever, and somewhat narcissistic crow tengu journalist wife!
>>36992938Are you this guy?>>36982866>A long time ago I developed a very strong affection for one of the characters. Because of this obsession, she (and Touhou as a whole) has become an integral part of my life to the point it would be very concerning to anyone If I told about her.
>>36992938I voted for Shizuha and I would like to take full credit for her huge jump this popularity poll.
>>36994364No, I prefer to keep my hobbies and obsessions to myself actually and only ever talk about them on here. I should have professed my love but it's too late now and since everyone forgot her she isn't on the survey now.Oh and who was I quoting?>>36994407Fraud votes will be removed, Shizuha will fall.
>>36994513>Fraud votes will be removed, Shizuha will fall.That's a weird way to spell Youmu
>>36992938I'm torn between giving a serious response and shamelessly shilling my 2hu for the next poll.
>>36888385this is cool. doing general polls here on other stuff could give some interesting results
>>37005246Gun ownership would be a good one. /jp/ has a big overlap with /k/
Bumping epic bread>>37005251This
>>37005251Gun ownership rights is a political issue, not a /jp/ related one. What about asking if they believe whether the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting happened or not? I think that would be a pretty interesting one especially if it included a part where the respondents gave free reponse answers to explain their points better.
>>37005251>>37005368Those things have nothing to do with Touhou.
>>37004907Ｙｏｕｍｕ ｗｉｌｌ ｂｅ ｅｘｏｎｅｒａｔｅｄ
>>36982866/jp/ is over 50% newfags and they don't even feel enough shame to lie about it. how the mighty have fallen.>>37005368nobody said "rights" calm down. he didn't even specify legal ownership.
>>37005385>Those things have nothing to do with Touhou.No shit.
>>37005095Rest assured there will be plenty of room to do both in the next one.>>37005246Agreed, but personally I would like to keep Touhou as the main subject for now. Will think of questions that tie into other hobbies though.>>37005430Like >>36888547 said, these eras were not the best way to divide the games. It also may have given the impression of asking which game you started with, rather than which year you got into 2hu.I'll just ask for a year input next time to be more succinct.
>>36888219So, i put mid windows era because i discovered touhou around 2010, but the first game i played was MS, so in which category am i
>>37013051Mid windows era because that's "when" you got into touhou.
>>37005251>/jp/ has a big overlap with /k/They only overlap because both boards either share users or are on good terms.
i've done my part, can i get my free candy now?
>>37014881No you bitch.
