Personal point of views over a character and interpretations like "psycho bitch" generating silly discussion. Nothing wrong with discussing a character CANON personality but Reimu is not a psychopathic bitch.

Go read the youkai moe note ZUN wrote, there is something about Reimu there that implies he consider her to be his favorite, along with Yuka being one of his favorites too.

psychopathic bitchiness is canon

or do you not pay attention to the game's dialogue

do any of you think that Marisa would ever use her magic to become a youkai, like Alice

personally I don't think she gives a shit if she lives for 100 years or a 1000

besides if she does live beyond a normal human life span she'll lose her excuse for "borrowing" things from youkai

and at any rate when she does die she'll be screwed when she comes before yama

Or more like ZUN is like Araki, and doesn't keep any particular color scheme as 100% canon. I think he tried to compromise with his own indecisiveness lately ..

This just means that something happened in the past that bears some similarity to some PC98 event.

To make PC98 canon, you'd first have to explain the differences. How did Alice grow mature, change her interests and occupation and settled in near Marisa's house with no evidence of her moving in recently, for example?

I thought it's supposed to be yellow overall.. it only was canon blue in PCB, and has remained yellow ever since.

Soku doesn't really count either, with her being yellow eyed in portrait and blue eyed in-game.

In the petit Nendoroid her eyes are yellow though, and I'd imagine that ZUN carefully looks over the designs for those before they finish considering their (limited) mass-production. Other manufacturers probably just ask for permission and then do whatever color they want.

I also suspect that ZUN doesn't want Alice to look TOO foreign, by making her slightly youkai-ish instead of giving her perfectly Scandinavian features, since he's a xenophobe bigot after all.

Characters changing their clothes, eye color, etc is not new in touhou. I don't see a problem with making a character "older" when you change from pc-98 to windows. It doesn't means it's the same character, major changes happened along with the system change.

>change her interests

>no evidence of moving recently
Marisa don't even knows who he fuck is Alice in PCB, I think it's pretty obvious that she JUST moved in.

We all know that when characters are defeated they tend to explore things outside the place they were before. For example SA. It's not hard to imagine Alice being defeated with such huge confidence and then got curious about the world outside Makai.

What the fuck you are saying with "became a magician"? She was a magician all along. You can't casts spells if you are not a magician and she used the goddamn grimoire in MS.

If you can use the spells in her grimoire then the immortality spell is easy. With that in mind Alice was already powerful enough to be a full magician in MS, the only thing supporting the theory that she wasn't is that she simply didn't made the ritual at the time, but that's even more speculation.

A huge change in looks along with game system simple as that is much more convincing considering we are talking about ZUN here.
