I went to the website and all of the cosplayers are hideous troons, so it's sure to be a SJW shitfest. Can't wait for the Reimu themed code of conduct page. Thank Kanako that I live in Nippon and can go to normal RTS.

It's scheduled for April 2023. By then they'll be requiring weekly vaxx and hextuple masks so it'll surely be cancelled.

Their main selling point on the website is a couple of cosplaying troons and a potential gameplay tournament.

Get a bunch of vendors to sell DBZ figures for 50% markup, probably.
Though for real, there's a lot of American creators, but printing works isn't as common. When/if it's done it's usually some giant collaboration artbook instead (zines) I doubt there would be many people who would not only have longer comics finished, but be willing to print them. Very slim chance.

Every western Touhou artist and musician I'm aware of stays anonymous so I can't imagine a whole lot of them going to some convention and potentially getting their identity leaked by a bunch of nosy organizers taking pictures of every booth without blurring faces to prove how much of a success their con was.

They also claim to have asked ZUN to make an appearance which... seems really optimistic.

I thought the last time they had a 2hu event in the U.S. it was a massive disaster and they essentially stole a bunch of money from Nip creators. That, combined with western tertiaries harassing ZUN about SJW shit in 2hu ("are their any LGBT characters???"), lead to believe the chance of ZUN going to America are less than zero.

Since doujin culture is virtually non-existent outside Japan, they have to come up with the average convention events like tournament, quizz and shit. Mix in the fantastic western "culture" and you have the receipe for disaster.

Selling h stuff would probably result in a shitstorm at best with the artists being treated as evil monsters, and loli stuff would just get you arrested.

There's artist alleys in the west which kind of have that "doujin" vibe but most artists sell general works, and even then, I've only seen people make merch for basic bitch series (the usual DBZ Sailor Moon feat Knuckles the Demon Slayer shit).
Of course maybe some of them do like Touhou but when it's the majority of artists doing the same shit you can only assume the worst.
I've seen cons that allow selling NSFW works or products, but I can't imagine many willing to sell face to face.

Congratulations, you're more dedicated to the majority of these people.
A nondedicated/fake fan is someone who has never played any of the official games (and no doujin games that aren't those weird "advice" VN's.) and had either no knowledge of the characters or the most basic, surface level knowledge, with their ideas of each character being taken exclusively from fanon/memes, and haven't listened to anything beyond the surface level/entry level songs.
This lack of knowledge is partially why people hate them cosplaying these characters.

To piggy back off of what >>38022338 is saying, anybody who is into Touhou (or anything else) because its the big thing that is popular and will bring them attention for contributing to it or talking about it rather than being into it because they are actually fucking into it are fake 'fans' who will leave the moment the next big fad pops up. This is also evidenced by the fact that they all have attention seeking bios dedicated to their sexuality and moral virtue in agreeing with the popular opinion on politics and like bringing those same things into the art they create attracting mentally ill people to the fanbase.

That's the problem, Touhou is still a very small and unknown thing outside of Japan. It can be missleading when you see all the discussions in english and other languages on the Internet, but those are from people spread all over the world. And think about the real content, like artworks, arranges and fangames, there's some great ones sure but It's not even comparable with the fuckton of content made in that single, relatively small country that is Japan. So in the west when you want to actually gather people in a place outside of the Internet, you realize that Touhou is not as popular as you though and that all the retarded meme being spammed everywhere means nothing.

This is the main issue really. If you think about it, touhou attained popularity in the west through people coming into contact with arranges and some well made videos. The clownroll and Bad Apple!! are responsible for much of the name recognition of the franchise outside Japan but they didn't lead people to making content. Most of the people that saw those, as well as the myriad of other popular th related works, didn't go on to make OC of their own. Most simply went heard some of the more popular tracks and arranges, maybe read some of the manga and maybe a handful of them that already cared about shmups played the games.
Compare that to how the Japanese community was created. When ZUN released 6 7 and 8 those games immediately became popular with the doujin artists and doujin music creators at comiket, which are the people that matter.
Two months ago an anon on here had posted a link to a web book called "Meaningness" specifically to a section of that book about subcultures and that had a few terms I quite liked. In Japan the touhou subculture has a large amount of creators and enthusiasts. In the rest of the world we have a tiny number of creators, a small number of enthusiasts and a shitload of mops. Mops are the passive consumers, that need to be guided to good content, they claim they care but can't search on their own. The memes and the viral videos mostly attracted mops.
Now where do the organizers of this event in california fit in? I would say that they are the sociopaths, here to exploit the popularity of the series for personal gain. I'm guessing that they saw the emergence of fumo and yukuri in normalfag circles and decided that now is the perfect opportunity to make some quick bucks.

Another key aspect I think is that doujin culture already existed and was well established before Touhou appeared in Japan. People already part of a circle could try making something with it, Comiket visitors would get to know that new series and ultimately more people would join and create their own circle. This wasn't the case at all in the west when Touhou began spreading on the Internet, and two decades latter we still have nothing remotely close to it.
Doujin is a cultural thing, you can "import" a series relatively easily with the Internet but importing a whole culture is a lot more difficult especially when an important part of it is a physical location to buy and sell that we don't have.

>I'm guessing that they saw the emergence of fumo and yukuri in normalfag circles and decided that now is the perfect opportunity to make some quick bucks.
To be fair the idea of making a Touhou convention in the west is not new, some people already wanted to make somthing like that around 10 years ago. Unsurprisingly it never worked out, there's just not enough people to offset the cost of renting the necessary space and not even enough to fill that space in the first place.

>especially when an important part of it is a physical location to buy and sell that we don't have.
Comiket is hugely important. The west certainly had "doujin culture" before the Internet and before Touhou, but with much smaller events for things like Star Trek only. The scale, the regularly occurring events, and the cross-fandom nature of Comiket all contribute to a general doujin culture, rather than isolated doujin cultures among different fandoms and conventions.
>To be fair the idea of making a Touhou convention in the west is not new,
I saw one of the organizers posting elsewhere while they were still doing preliminary work for this new convention. They were involved with Touhoucon as well, so they are definitely not just some newcomers looking to cash in on Yukkuri videos. (They were also clear to distance themselves from Touhoucon.)

I think crossplaying is only fine if you have the masculine features to offset the feminine outfit like muscles, facial hair, strong jawline, etc. A bearded Cirno or a muscular Marisa is charming. If you’re skinny, fat, very obviously celibate (because that means you’re almost definitely crossplaying as a fetish,) or otherwise just a weak person, it’s gross. Nobody enjoys seeing a bunch of 40 year old men wearing skirts.

One of the big factors holding back the creation of a serious doujin culture in the west is copyright bullshittery. You can bet your ass people would be selling Star Wars hentai doujin at comicon if they could but disney will send the knee breakers. In fact they will hunt you down even if you aren't selling, as they are obsessed with controlling the "image" of their cash cows. Can't have little (age 38) Timmy look at Chewbaka's hairy baka or else he might think that happened in the movies!!!!11!!1!1
There was also that whole issue with nintendo prohibiting fangames.
Even with companies that aren't that sociopathic you wont be able to sell your content without explicit legal confirmation by the copyright owner of your right to sell the tetriary material.
To make matters worse copyright will never expire due to the constant lobbying of congress by fatcats.
There's also the issue that recent american generations are shit at creativity, the gen Xers were retard homos and the millennials are too far up their ass with their """irony""" and inherent desire to be normalfags to create anything worthwhile.
The zoomies might be able to fix things, retarded as they are, they are very sincere in their autism and that's the building block of subcultures, let's just hope that their brains don't get fried completely by social media

Who are their guests other than a bunch of fuck all 3DPD cosplayers? Can they guarantee at least one decent touhou music artist that we can meet in person?

I don't think they would, it'd just potentially get low ratings in the "use of the theme" category (but maybe not?).
I get the point you're trying to make, though: it's not like homosexuality is frowned upon in the Touhou community, or needs additional representation to make homosexuals feel welcome. It's pointless virtue signaling at this point (or maybe just using pride month as an excuse to make games, depending on how cynical you are).

>Can they guarantee at least one decent touhou music artist that we can meet in person?

With the current state of the world? Probably not. Unless that artist is willing to quarantine for for like 2 weeks here knowing California and then 2 weeks there knowing japan.

Of course that's assuming any of the staff can speak japanese or figure out how to get in touch with anyone cool.

It's also US convention so I have no real hope for the guests. US cons always focus too much on US people like cosplayers or voice actors that I don't give a shit about.

Which is a shame cus there a a million people you could probably get to come over for pretty cheap all things considered. I know people in the doujin music scene who will come over pretty much for a free flight and weed.

I might go to this thing as I'll be on the West Coast at the time so getting there would be cheap. Might be fun to gawk at if nothing else. If I get bored I can find something else to do in LA.

I'm not going to reply to all of this, but the major point of difference is that one puts the series first, and the other puts politics first. That is to say, if I told a yurifag I didn't like their ship, they'd either shrug it off, or say I have terrible taste. If I told the westerner I didn't like their ship, they would call me a homophobe. The westerner is more interested in the politics and how the series can be used to fuel that. They likewise want others to know of their politics, and any who disagree barred and removed. Their politics is a driving force in their use of the series, as well as a shield from any and all criticism. And you just know the people posting touhous with pride flags would flip their shit if someone posted a touhou with a confederate flag or anything of that nature.

Communities need to maintain a controlled ratio of enthusiasts and mops. The LGBT fags are mostly mops and importantly, if they are allowed to fester they will attract more of their kind. Much like other mops, they feel the need to morph the subculture into something more palatable to their tastes, they mostly talk about their fag politics and fag mental illnesses, with the subculture only serving as the current backdrop. Difference is, most mops aren't coordinated, if they can't change the community they won't care, the fags feel a need to change the community.
They are malicious, they try to morph the community into a fag safespace, they try to drag everyone into their faggy arguments. Particularly at IRL events they cause more trouble than anyone else, 1 of them is as much trouble as 10 normal normalfags.
We need to keep them out of the community, if we don't want the community to die. Tell me do you want touhou to become a westoid faggot community?

I think the most irritating part of it isn't really that they exist and say "Oh, trans rights!" or some shit, it's that they involve themselves and get mad if you don't want to put up with their shit. With a normal person, that'd be fine. But imagine if I made a fangame and got some random online people who liked Touhou to join in, and one of them turned out to be from that can of worms. Not just "oh, they're trans," but for the sake of argument they're very vehemet about forcing the characters into being LGBT or something. If I rejected them for trying to force their identity politics on a game mostly devoid of it, I'd probably be scorned. Even if I had an entire twitter timeline of them being autistically obsessed with who they are, and why everything someone makes of something they like should cater to their whims, I'd probably be called a bigot cause I don't want the non-canon trash in a fangame. Even worse, it sort of pushes into the territory of violating ZUN's policy against pushing personal political views with your game, but I don't imagine that they care about that because imposing governmental restrictions on people so you can gain unfair protections and opportunities is apparently not "politics" but about "human rights" as I've heard many of them say.
The best you can do is simply steer clear of them and hope they don't force themselves into whatever you're doing.

gonna use thread to ask because I don't a point making a new thread for this:
What exactly is "doujin culture"?
People in Japan can make derivative works of any IP and sell them at conventions? Be it music, comics, games, etc.?
Say, a guy makes a music album using different instruments compared to the original, can he sell that at conventions freely? Or the IP's owner has all the rights to decide what happens to that music album?
What about exceptions like Nintendo shutting down fan projects? Isn't that against the whole "doujin culture" that people like?

You are a massive dishonest faggot for implying that what japs do are the exact same thing as that pride shit pushed by trannies here in the West.
What the japs are interested are in the aesthetics of it, while theit western counterparts are interested in social engineering through making subversive works and enforcing group think to push their pride shit.

First and foremost, doujin culture is people sharing common interests getting together to produce what they want. It can be any kind of media, music, books, animation, 3D modeling, cosplay, jewelry... It doesn't have to be based of an existing IP and there's a lot of original work, but since enjoying the same series is a big factor for people to group together it's not suprising there's a huge amount of that too. Then those people sell their work at various events through the year, the biggest one being Comiket. And for work based on an IP, that is illegal.

>Or the IP's owner has all the rights to decide what happens to that music album?
They have all the rights to do that, just as in the west. However most of the time the law isn't enforced because everyone has something to gain here. If you find a music CD or doujinshi and you like it, chances are you'll want to check out the source material at some point so it's basically a huge free publicity for the companies being it. Plus a lot of artists first begin by producing and selling doujin work before working in the industry, so if lets say a manga publisher were to take down doujinshi based of their IPs it would send a big middle fingers to both the customers and the artists, and surely if one of them end up being the author of the next huge hit and they're looking for a publisher, they won't choose that one.

There's exceptions though. I remember not so long ago the production company behind Girls und Panzer banning any derivative work of the IP. It wasn't well received. And as you said, Nintendo is also especially infamous for taking down everything, you won't find Nintendo-based doujin work at Comiket but they definitely don't need any kind of free publicity so I guess they just don't care. As for Touhou, as long as you follow the very permissive guidelines you're free to do pretty much whatever you want. ZUN still have all the rights on his IP and can take down projects which doesn't follow the rules, it happened a couple of times like with that ufotable anime.

tl;dr Selling doujin work based of an IP is illegal but for the law to be enforced you first need right owners to complain, and most don't as they actually benefit from the situation.

ah, right, I forgot, doujins are self-published works and I mistakenly mixed it with "derivative works" which is also a kind of doujin
do people contact the IP owner (in case they are also a small indie) and introduce their doujin work as a good gesture (idk, say they love the IP so much that they made a doujin based on it)?
anyway, thanks for the reply. I hope I can attend Reitaisai, once as a customer and once as a vendor in my lifetime, would be really radical, I think

>> No.38116815

>do people contact the IP owner
No need to do that, you just make it and sell it, unless the IP has explicit rules telling you to ask first I guess. For Touhou you only need to ask ZUN if what you're making isn't doujin work (like a company producing figures of the characters) or if you're selling outside of the usual doujin distribution methods (like if you're making a fangame and want to publish physical copies of it in stores worldwide)
