Not really. Touhou games don't really sell that good. Also, unknown Japanese RPGs like Arc the lad recieved an animu adaption yet Touhou is so unpopular that it's still on the waiting list. I facepalm at the fan rumors that "ZUN doesn't want an animu unless he's doing the plot." If you stop to think about that line for a few seconds you would facepalm too.

Protip: Just because Touhou is popular amoungst the imageboards != true popularity.

Hell, even American animu dubs are more popular than it. Some reruns of reruns of Naruto received 2 million ratings. So once again, I must facepalm.

Except ZUN actually said that.

Mind you, that may not be THE REASON there isn't a Touhou anime (the real reason is because the studios don't think it will make money), but it's true. Also, ZUN is afraid copyright issues would become more complex at that point, and hurting the fan scene would be counterproductive.

>And, on that note, there’s lots of talk about “what if there were a Touhou anime”, but it’s not likely to happen - a new medium would require a new plot and new characters and all of that work *plus* the work of actually doing the animation would be just way too much for one person (even though some people DO do it alone). In addition, involving lots of other people would make questions like copyright a lot more complex, so his philosophy is that it’s best just to leave it be.

10,000 != Popular.
100,000 != Popular.
1,000,000 = Popular.

Code Geass and Death Note gets around 100,000 - 300,000 ratings, but do you really think Death Note and Geass are popular?

Protip: Code Geass and Death Note are doing so bad that Adult Swim replaced 90% of the animu timeslots with cartoons. Only shows like Naruto can be considered *true popular. Also, one question?

I couldn't care less if someone doesn't like Touhou. Seriously, as far as I can tell, most of the fandom is spawned because of the doujin works over the games. I suck at the games, can't even 1cc normal in any of em. Doesn't mean I don't like playing them.

I was just providing some information. Either way, a lot of what goes into a board and the topics depends on the people posting.

IE, if people only know about Touhou, that's all they're going to post. Not everyone knows a whole lot about Japan, and a lot of what we could talk about here has other boards made for it. Anime? That's japanese, but there's /a/ for that. Places in Japan? /trv/ is there. Fashion? Music? Fucking hell, there's even a board for fucking Origami.

Don't blame /jp/ for the fact most of the usable topics can easily be placed in more specific boards over itself. Touhou should be in /v/, because it's a goddamn fucking game, but I hear /v/ doesn't want it. Why hell Touhou was in /a/, I'll never know. I hear /tg/ accepted Touhou, or at least tolerated it.

Well moot said don't let one *topic dominate /jp/." Which topic gets spammed the most you ask? "Touhou."

It's like moot creating an OS board and telling everybody not to let one OS dominate the board. And the only topic that people talk about is Windows XP. You're failing to understand the statement. Even if Touhou was posted at a 1/10 ratio, Touhou topics are still dominating /jp/. Think about all of /jp/'s topics. Ronery threads, Fate s/n threads, etc... Touhou out numbers them. No two topics combined on /jp/ can equal Touhou.

Comparing topics one by one, dumbass.

Let's say for example:

Number of Touhou topics = 256
Number of Ronery topics = 89
Number of Fate stay/night topics = 56
Number of how to learn Japanese topics = 26

No topic by itself can go toe to toe with the number of Touhou topics. Hence the reason why 1 subject is dominating /jp/. This is the last time I'm going to say this. If you fail to understand it again, then I guess you'll have to continue living in blissful ignorance.

In other words, the one great failing of /jp/ is we don't have another titan to stand toe to toe with Touhou, like Gurren Lagann vs. Lucky Star. What we really need is for like a third of the Touhoufags to defect to Type-Moon so we can make this place just like /a/. Because /a/ is worthy of being emulated. C'mon guys, how can we stir up any serious factionalism with so few Type-Moon threads?

Horse shit. All the VNs combined and multiplied by 2 couldn't compare to the vast number of Touhou threads.

>> No.637229

That is not how it works. I already knew that you were comparing topic to topic. Which is not how you go about deciding if something is dominating the board or not.

10 pages with 10 threads per page = 100 threads

I am not repeating myself yet again. In order for Touhou to be considered dominating the ENTIRE BOARD then the thread count has to be 50 threads + 1 at least. It is the same as the concept of controlling interest.

Now let's say that realistically Touhou has about 30 threads over the 10 pages of /jp/. That's 30 threads out of 100. 30%

30% != 51%

Does not dominate the entire board.

>> No.637234


Why, that wouldn't make sense at all! After all, Melty Blood is not even remotely related to Type-Moon. Why, that would be almost as ludicrous as counting Tsukihime threads as Type-Moon.

Another example. Let's take for example a world famous Boxer. Let's call him Joe. Joe has beat everyone. He's the world's best pound for pound boxer. Which means he dominates the sport of boxing. Does this mean he can beat everybody at once? I didn't think so. See where I'm going with this.

Touhou's not popular period. Thread/

Guy's not kidding when he says Arc the Lad has more fans then Touhou. I bet you don't even know what arc the lad is. Which only makes it more ironic. I read in one magazine where it said Ar the Lad sold 150,000+ units in America. That number (while small) is much bigger than anything Touhou could ever dream of reaching. Where's all the touhoes sells? But again, the thing that's truthfully ironic about this is that most of the people in this thread haven't even heard of Arc the Lad.

It's true.

When Death Note airs at 12:00 it gets around 200-300,000+ ratings. But when it comes on later in the night it receives around 20-40,000+ ratings.

Are you trying to say there's 20-40,000 Touhou fans in America? If so, please explain how one can obtain such a drug that will induce such delusions.

You could do a census of /jp/ and the /touhou/ imageboard and it would probably be around 80 people. Probably even less than that.
