A few stories from picrel:
During 2010-2012, there was an explosion of kourin’s art on Danbooru
Most of the works that made up the 8.8k that exists today came from this era
Thing is, in the early ages of those days, the works that were uploaded weren’t getting approved
You can see it pretty clearly under some of the more shipping heavy post of him around page 200-300
Users suspected that a yurifag was behind the ordeal, but that suspicion was neither confirmed nor denied
It’s not hard to imagine there being more works of him around this time that were simply deleted and never seen the light of day because they were forgotten, lost or both

There also exist a site:
This one is dedicated to the man himself, and while it seems to be dead (links are not working, latest activity related to the site were of last year,...) it still list a lot of fan work of him
If anyone can figure out how to navigate this site and finds these work of him it would be a boon

He is a careful person, and seems like the kind that doesn’t let pride get the better of him

He probably thought that he has an item that would help even the ground between him and Yuugi
But it’s highly likely that he mistaken the workout belt as that something

I'd argue his lack of history with the human village implies he's somewhat young for a youkai. He's been to the outside world also, but didn't recognize it at all when he went a second time. I get the feeling he's either less than a hundred years old, or just over a hundred. He seems really naive and uninformed about a lot of stuff, and quite innocent besides.

>I'd argue his lack of history with the human village implies he's somewhat young for a youkai.
if I remember correctly, he was under the guidance of Marisa’s father for some time before he moved out due to him feeling that his ability can get better use and started Kourindou. In CoLA, his time there is rarely ever mentioned, but I don’t think it’s because he didn’t have much interactions with them. Even then, there is a lack of information on what he was like during his time in the village, so I don’t think this can be used as an argument
>He has been to the outside world also, but didn’t recognize it when he returned.
Speaking of which, there is also the fact that he lived before he came in to Gensokyo, so his age might’ve been older, also this point would have only been valid had he recognized the outside world, but he doesn’t, so that means the outside world he knows is a lot different from the one he was shown when he got there for a second time, and thus, would make the point that more than less time have passed.
>I get the feeling he's either less than a hundred years old, or just over a hundred. He seems really naive and uninformed about a lot of stuff, and quite innocent besides.
I think he’s about 150~170 ish, given the point above, and his naivety about a lot of stuff in this case might just be a result of his silent demeanor, being generally uninformed about the items that lies inside his shop, and Zun being Zun.

Yes, and?

You do know that in 1900 the world was VASTLY different than it was in 2005, right? Hell, even in 1950 it was massively different.

>> No.39484099

Actually just remembered: that would in fact serve to the idea that he's young, because it would mean that in only a few decades the world had changed so significantly, which baffles him (since it really doesn't work like that in Gensokyo)

Here's what he said, this is an extract from page 321 of "The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers", which I've just downloaded after finding out about it on wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZUN_(video_game_developer)#Design_philosophy ). The whole book looks like an extremely interesting read.

>> No.39486310

Either I’m retarded or there is something I’m missing, cause if you were to say that, it would mean the period that he spent his time before getting in gensokyo would be unknown, cause we don’t know what he saw during that point in time. This argument can be use to compare 1600s to 1900s or whatever the fuck so using it to say he is young doesn’t really make sense to me

Simply put, Rinnosuke doesn't seem worldly, knowledgeable, or mature, so to peg him as "old" would be odd (compare him to the 100+ year olds in the series, and all of them are pretty knowledgeable or possessing of wisdom--yes even Flandre, and sure Rinnosuke is "knowledgeable", but half of his "knowledge" is BS and the other half is common Gensokyoan history). Rather a limited experience with the outside world and a much more significant experience with Gensokyo/Marisa's dad would mean he'd probably not be very old. Far as I know he's not as old as The Barrier (a bit over 100 years old), but that's just guessing based on his seeming lack of awareness about the barrier itself/no explicit mention of seeing the barrier or living before it or anything. Furthermore one reason he left the side of humans was that they were noticing his lack of aging that made them uncomfortable. You could pull that off for a few decades, but more than a hundred and everyone would go "what the fuck, it's an immortal". He does give the impression in CoLA chapter 20 that he may have moved more than once, but it's vague. It IS clear that Marisa's dad was a huge influence on him, which IMO is another indication of immaturity.
Basically in my view a lot points to Rinnosuke being in his 50s or 60s. At the least he's too old to know about video games but is old enough to understand a decent amount of technology and THINK that he's an expert on the outside world, which rapidly advanced in the 20th century (which would be the answer to "why was he surprised to return in the early 2000s).

>> No.39486691

He'd only need to be like 200 for that, so he'd still be a baby in youkai terms.

>> No.39487297

Make sense
This explanation seems to be what Zun was aiming for when he wrote Rinnosuke in CoLA, matching up and explaining most of his behavior
Though it seems he is shrouded in vagueness, leaving a lot for the imagination. This matches up with Zun stand with how he wants his characters, and by extension gensoukyo, to be: up to the interpretation and imagination of readers
Though it’s quite interesting to see that he is one of the more well define characters, probably due to him being just a minor one

New eh?
Let me explain:
4chan have a deep and long hatred of modern social media, including but not limited to: Reddit, Twitter, and whatever else. Because of 4chan anonymity though, anyone from those sites can post here and none would be the wiser. Thus, to differentiate between actual users and the other group, they decided on a method of recognition: Reddit spacing. Reddit spacing was born from what I can only assume is the collective autism of every mentally ill fucks on this planet, and is used to describe the act of putting in spaces where it isn’t necessary. Like this:

Normal spacing

Reddit spacing

Now a day, this term is used to criticize unnecessarily use of spacing. That much is obvious

>> No.39497941

>half of the rest of novels now are just Sumireko shenanigans
You'd think someone from the outside world who's fascinated by youkai (such as Aya and Narumi when they appeared in some chapters) would at some point notice/know Rinnosuke is half youkai himself and want to learn more about him and his history, but we don't get any of that

>> No.39498189

It's a /v/tard shitpost

>> No.39498600

It was born not from full autism, but because reddit has or had the retarded feature of needing TWO presses of the enter button to put one horizontal space. As such, a habitual user would grow to see this action as normal and type with these two spaces.

If you want an idea about the feelings towards male youkai, reread the chapter about the hobgoblins in WaHH.

So you're saying he's half male and half female? Given Keine and Kagerou seem to identify as youkai and they're human most of the time, he probably does as well. I'm not sure if Youmu thinks of herself as a human.

The tengu leader is a dude. Genji is/was a dude and was important when Reimu was riding on him. Two old men are basically the co-stars of Lotus Eaters.

That isn't about them being male, it's about them being weird-looking and not cute, specifically. You could argue "males are creepy looking as youkai, then?" but that simply isn't true from what we've seen.
