You say that under the following assumptions:
1. ZUN told the artist to draw her at that height.
2. The artist cared enough to draw her properly.

Also, heights in Touhou are canon. ZUN responded to an email and said there are different heights in Touhou. Reimu is average, Yukari is tall, and Remilia is really short.

>> No.6499181

No need to be so bashful. Everyone here knows that the artists working on the official manga are allowed some freedom, but that doesn't change the fact that ZUN overlooks their work and has accepted them as canon, more or less.

I do think it's an interesting slip-up though, if that really is Lily Black.

So Shiki really is tall, and it's just fanon being fucking retarded as usual by portraying her as a tiny loli.

That's all for the better, I prefer sex legs.

While we're on this, does anyone know if ZUN has ever cleared up any questions over bust size? Because Yukari's never actually been drawn with much (of any) chest by him, and yet fanon would say that she has the biggest tits in Gensokyo.

I've always though of Eiki as not tall but not short either. Most fan-artists make her a bit on the shorter side, but she's usually taller than Reimu, which is definitely not loli. I don't understand where people get the idea that fans always/often portray her as super small, because excluding some cases in parodical/comical works she's usually about the same; mid-heigh/size.

Shiki can change her height at will and chooses loli size just to fuck with people. She switches to normal when she wants to intimidate. Problem solved.

What are you comparing them with? Least popular character(s) in a game in the main series might not be very popular by Touhou standards, seeing as some of them are highly identifiable pop-culture icons, but like others have said before me, there's still more active fandom for these "unpopular" characters than there are for some entire series.

Have you ever been to pixiv or Niconico Douga? All Touhous have some sort of mini-movement. I was browsing pixiv this weekend for hours doing nothing but looking at pictures of mostly UFO characters, and there's plenty of love for all of them, including Murasa and Ichirin.

It's kinda hard to say at this point. I'd say fanart-wise Shou gets more quality fanart but Murasa gets more overall. Oh, and Shou gets a lot of fanart together with Nazrin because when Nazrin got more popular her primary pairing also got more popular. So Nazrin's popularity technically boosted Shou's, which make it hard to say which is the more popular between her and Murasa.

The most popular UFO Touhous seem to currently be Nazrin, Byakuren and Kogasa, in that order give-or-take. The rest seem pretty even, even if Ichirin is kinda sagging behind. Makes me sad, because I like her.

Overall, if you go by time/popularity and take into consideration that UFO is soon a year and a half old, I'd say they're all doing pretty well.

What, you're talking about how to interpret the word "treasure"? She's Remilia-tier at best, but still probably below that, since she can't control anything, she simply has the "the power to attract" implying she herself can't decide on or control anything. It just happens, disregarding of her will.

Not really as an insult, no. She's a low-high I guess? She's no Yukari, but she still has a very hax power, even if it's fairly limited and doesn't work instantly.

But I really said at best, meaning if you took the word "treasure" and threw it around in whatever way you wanted. Which would only be confusing since anything "treasured" could become "a treasure" meaning Shou wouldn't be able to move from all the shit piling up around her.
