I am told there was some writer in the 90's who wrote about otaku culture and predicted that some phenomenon like Touhou would emerge.

Does /jp/ know the name of this writer and/or where to find this prophetic piece of writing?

Wait, that was made in 2000, not the 90's, nevermind

Wow. That's pretty damn obscure OP. I don't think even 2ch knows about it.

Mainly because most otakus from the 90s have moved on.

what phenomenon? a fairly popular doujin game?

Fairly popular? It might be on its way to becoming a religion for all we know.

Everybody forgot about LS already. K-On's popularity is declining FAST. Otakus are just unpopular hipsters.
They just fade away...

K-On didn't have that many doujins either, and most of them wer RAPE RAPE RAPE smut.

Gee, doujin artists favor doujinsoft, who would have thought?

>> No.6254514

Rozen Maiden almost reached Touhou levels of popularity baack then, even needing its own event, Makimaki.

So your idea is flawed. Something else makes this popular. Not just because it is "doujin soft".

>Otakus are just unpopular hipsters.
It's funny because it's true. Majority of mainstream anime are just a short term hips.

It's not favour, it's dedication. If fanbase isn't dedicated enough it will just disappear when the next shiny thing will arrive. And it does. This keeps happening constantly, only few otaku things have really survived the initial event.

The fact that its ongoing. It's run longer than Rozen Maiden and the other series. That's all. When he stops making games, it'll fade away. For now, it just keeps getting fresh materials to use coupled with lax copyright.

if it was written in the 90s, it might have already been forgotten in time. What I would like to know is where OP got that info.
