I don't get her.

Now she's arguably the character people loathe the most in the Western Fandom with the reason of plot armour blah blah lazy miko, etc. But in every 1 or 2 games she changes her attitude, in PC-98 she's young so I understand. Starting from EoSD her attitude is cool-ish and more carefree. Then in PCB is still like that except with the more skip-dialogue -> achieve-tea ideal. In IN she doesn't give two shits about anything that's going on (except the human village in stage 3) and is mad at Yukari for dragging her into it even though she later settles it and the only smile she does in the game is at Kaguya.

In PoFV well, nothing much, just the multi games' usually ridiculous reasons for every character having to fight the other (suspicion, funny-looking, the weather, etc). In MoF she's understandably angry about someone trying to take over her shrine. In SA she's mad at being obliged (?) to leave the hot springs, which later turns out to be a world-saving choice.

Then, in UFO, she, well, snaps. I've read the official mangas including SSiB (God forbid) and read more-so every dialogue she's done in the games and she's usually cool-headed with the occasional rage about X reason that her enemy feels the need to fight her or vice versa. But reading UFO she goes completely psycho after stage 2, being massively dissful towards anything that blocks her way towards the apparent ''gold'' that is in the floating ship. And after learning that there's no gold, her spirit goes down and all she has thoughts for is that this turned out to be yet another gohei-final-boss-in-the-buttocks-and-have-tea-ASAP routine.

>> No.6663826

Now I like characters who play the hero/heroine lead character who don't give much of damn about their duties, it gives them some originality and makes them more interesting than the usual stereotype since I don't know how the ''laziness'' and ''hard work'' aspects are measured in a wacko place like Gensokyo's standards, so much that the vision we have of something is completely redundant in that place/ZUN's mind.

But Reimu just gives me a headache whenever the whole 'character X is better than Y because Z' since usually the reason given is taken from fandom or misunderstanding or just sheer asshole-ness. Playing through the games and especially reading the mangas gives me this understanding: If she's in ''Incident Mode'' she will annihilate anything in her intuition's path until 'Final Stage Clear' appears and being generally non-talkative. While her ''Peace Mode'', that is, when she's at her shrine drinking tea, she's COMPLETELY different from when she battles, it's like two stereotype angel-devil aides get into her soul depending on whether she's solving an Incident or not (also if it involves her shrine).

>> No.6663830

In ''peace mode'', she's, like, a goddess of calmitude (?), she's nicer and all the final bosses instantly become her friends, something about her manual description in some games said that every youkai liked her for some trait she had but this still dazzles me. On one hand you have the lazy, psychotic, dutiful Terminator, while on the other you have a normal girl with rather odd-traited friends like Marisa, Yukari, Suika, etc. (in the good way). What I mean by this is that she's a fucking complexity of a character when you think about it that, well, uh, fuck it, touhou is batshit senseless and any bit of straight fact-gathering (eg: I like this character because of X) is completely bsed by ZUN (who said that Touhou's story was an utter joke by the way) everytime he bloody gets, he possibly doesn't even remember what he did last game, and I love him and Touhou for it.

tl;dr: Reimu is a love-hate scenario when you think of it this way, also touhou is 'un-doable'.

Reimu's been going through lifethreatening incidents from 1-4. Five onwards it's still a chore, but there's been NO REWARD FOR UNENDING LABOUR.

It's no surprise the one time she decides to try to succeed in winning the treasure ship lottery and finds out her hard work beating down youkai is utterly wasted she gets slightly ticked off.

She really is that poor. Have you know what it's like to go hungry because you're too busy beating up youkai to grow your own crops? And having to go around the village to ask for offerings of food, to people who are already pretty much subsistence farming?

I'm not a fan of Reimu, but it's not really for any nit-picky analysis of game dialogue or Freudian personality armchair psychology. I actually have quite a thing for mikos and like that the protagonist is one.

I don't care for Reimu, especially in opposition to Marisa, because she's lazy.

When I just started getting into Touhou with EoSD, I read all the character profiles. Relevant to Marisa and Reimu: Reimu has ridicu-mond-ultima-crazy-mendous power level because she's the Hakurei Miko of Paradise, but she doesn't like to train. Marisa is just an ordinary witch who has to work as hard as she can just to keep up with Reimu.

If she cared to get off her tea-sipping hakama-clad ass and train once in a while, how powerful could she be? How much more stable could Gensokyo be?
Stopping Kaguya, raining on Remilia's parade, knocking out a ghost somehow, ceasing nuclear proliferation... she didn't really care for that. It's a bother to her to use her strength. She just wants to sip tea, sweep, and accept donations until the day she dies. What a waste. And she blows away all the "villains"? How much interest do you take in a hero or heroine for whom victory is effortless?

How does Marisa meet the challenge? Gathering magical mushrooms daily and cooking them, daily training, adoption and adaptation and improvement (Arthur's Round Table, anyone?) of observed magical spells, research in gathered tomes and devices gathered from various sources, and high doses of LSD. And she still has time to pester Reimu, Alice, the SDM, and presumably Nitori.

One works hard for her success, solving problems and overcoming obstacles while still being a thief with a heart of gold or at least breasts.
One lives off the nanny state and is lauded praise for achieving what was/(could have been) effortless.

Who am I more interested in? Pimp hat.

As OP mentioned, there's no way to measure how is the effort aspect measured in Gensokyo/ZUN's mind, and although Marisa is to be respected, I just see sheer aggresion and repel from Reimu since Marisa hasn't been mentioned in this thread at all, much less dissed. I've seen that backup endlessly and from what I gather, Marisa isn't a ''saint of effort'', she does gather mushrooms and does experiments, but you have to atribute most of that to her easy-go stealing, which if you want to call a honorable way of effort then go ahead, I prefer to avoid dissing but facts sometimes turn out that way.

Anyhow, note that from EoSD and onwards there's no real ''power'', it's just danmaku dodging skills, the only real catastrophe was Utsuho's, and in Reimu's dialogue against her she does start to worry, by the way. She gets angrier from game to game, and most of her dissing by fans comes from comparisons to Marisa herself, since she's the other main character and prefencial debates are inevitable.

I'll make it simple, doubles.

According to ZUN-created character profiles, Reimu has huge amounts of power inherited from her status but doesn't care to train it at all;
Marisa does not have immense power, but instead must work for it.
On that alone, Marisa is the more interesting of the two. That a majority of Marisa's power is dependent on thievery is a fan interpretation that exaggerates a practice that would have rapidly diminishing returns if looked at practically.

I can see preferences of one Touhou over another, hell you can have your entire pixiv filled with one sole character's and it's all cool. But I don't see the need in having to prove that your character is superior than the other in order to make your character better, it just creates conflict. Any Touhou can like each other since grudges are a rare thing in Gensokyo (the exception would be Kaguya and Mokou) whatever the other could have done. Even ZUN said that no matter how intense the pre-dialogue between characters is, in every single danmaku battle, both girls are fighting in a relaxed way, they both know it's a bloody minor test of skill, even after the battle.

OP, was going to give you a long explanation, but realized this is probably going to be ignored anyway.

The short of it is that I think you are taking in-game dialog too literally. Reimu is very rarely actually mad in ANY canon work. Period. Her basic character description would be "Carefree, unless she's solving an incident", which has been very consistent. You know, unless someone destroys her shrine. If you perceive that as "inconsistent", then I'm afraid you have a tenuous grasp of how humans behave.

Also, do try to remember that everything you see in the games is pre/post battle trash talk and the battles themselves are mock battles where no one gets seriously hurt or killed. Not really much to go on in determining how characters would react to actual situations. Try reading the stories instead, there's a lot more character exploration there.

Except that the only examples we ever see of her punishing the fairies are incredibly minor. See the scene where they try to scare her and she just boots em and moves on without even batting an eye.

In Gensokyo, when youkai (or fairies) annoy the shrine maiden, they receive swift punishment and then everyone moves on. Its like when a dog misbehaves. You slap it with a newspaper and go "no, bad!", then a couple minutes later you go back to petting it.

OP here, to be honest, I was just writing down notes the same way I'd be if I were stalking a person. What I mean by ''snaps'' is that, pre-UFO, she used to be less noisy (I know she's carefree and all) and more ask-questions-first-shoot-later. Though I didn't get much into it as the reason is clearly the fact that she thinks there could finally be a bit of a help in her financial status and there are youkais obsessed with these random UFO pickups she's finding, which get them in the mood to fight her.

Now I know that Reimu's poverty is mostly used in fanon jokes ever since she uttered it in IaMP, but it could be something related to fix her shrine damages after SWR according to the wiki. Note that Reimu B isn't concerned about it and neither is she in the mangas (although she lamented her loss of gold in the Ibara Kasen story).

I know that Reimu's usually calm, I just made the post because I wanted to be clear about both of her attitudes in terms of noisiness and treating-of-others, to which I'll just let ZUN continue and hopefully keep Reimu the way she is.

I kinda find it funny how in pretty much all official descriptions of fairies, they are described as being not exactly the brightest of folk. Yet in all of the 3 Fairies manga series, they are actually pretty fucking smart, at least above average intelligence compared to people in OUR world. I remember reading one the other day, and one of them (Was it Lunachild? Or maybe it was Sunny Milk) makes a joke about fractals, of all things.

You know, for a land that shunned science, a lot of people there seem to be pretty well acquainted with it.

I was a bit harsh about it anyway, so it's all cool.

Also, the greed thing isn't completely unfounded either, since it comes up multiple times in WaHH (is anyone else getting a bit sick of coming up with new abbreviations for these things?). Afterall, she does plot to scam people with the Kappa arm. But who can blame her, considering that her shrine gets no worshipers, despite her being at least partially responsible for gensokyo not being a cannibalistic hell hole anymore.

I just think that fandom tends to flanderize characters too much, and thats where the root of most our problems comes from. Reimu is mean and greedy, Marisa is a bitch thief and a womanizer, Sakuya goes beyond being a sociopath and into the territory of being homicidal, Cirno is completely retarded, Alice is a creepy tsundere/yandere stalker, etc etc etc. These things plague not only the western fandom, but even the Japanese fandom is rifle with this stuff.

Sure, there are aspects of their personalities that are at least partially based on actual canon, but the characters are at least a bit better developed than being completely one dimensional. Unfortunately when having these debates, most people are arguing for/against a bizarro version of a character they have cooked up in their minds that doesn't necessarily match up to anything that actually ever happened.

>> No.6669890

> Continuing from

I can't completely blame people for doing this since Touhou is unique in the fact that character development isn't concentrated in any one place. You have to read EVERYTHING to get a good feel for the characters, and that is a rather tall order considering that some of it isn't even translated yet. But most people just push this way past the limit of common sense. The "Reimu is a bitch" thing is by far the worst offender though, considering she's actually probably one of the nicer (if occasionally temperamental, but hey who isn't?) people we've been shown. Marisa is also a lot more even headed than fans give her credit for, especially in the print works.

Hell, there are so many things in the endings that people just plain don't know because they never beat the games. I remember getting the Reimu and Marisa endings in EoSD and being like "Wait, wtf? Sakuya just lets Marisa in and tries to hide her from Remilia?! Why the hell do they make Sakuya out to be murderous bitch to Marisa then? God dammit, this is WAY more interesting than that bullshit they told me". After that I never listened to a god damned thing fans have ever said and decided to form my own opinions.

I sometimes think that we should put together a good introduction to the series and descriptive character profiles based ENTIRELY on canon (instead of conjecture), just to help mitigate the deluge of people that are relatively new and flood the boards with misinformation and stupid questions. I would say we already have the wiki for that, but I think that might be a bit too much for some people to wrap their heads around. Maybe a "Top 100 things fans think about Touhou that are complete bullshit", along with proof.

Damn, I think I rambled on a bit there. Sorry 'bout that.

OP here, I'm glad you posted this, it makes me a bit more sure about my vision of Touhou and I do agree with what you said, it's quite true that flanderization in Touhou is taken to the extreme, but the thing is, in the eastern fandom this is mostly used as a subtle matter of humour and when there's some video that resembles Touhou 3D Dogfight's style then the crowd will cheer for battle instead of humour, which in most of the western fandom they just suck up the fanon way more than canon to their preferences.

This is an example: You know that SOUNDHOLIC video where Reimu controls the Tokyo Big Zam against Sanae's mecha? You know what the people in the western fandom complained about? I shit you not: the fact that Utsuho was wearing a labcoat. If people actually read the games' dialogue they'd know that Utsuho is guillible instead of Cirno-ish, and she's Gensokyo's top in terms of chemistry and physics (not to mention the fact that she did contribute to Hisoutensoku's management in canon). With this and many other examples that I've seen I get my teeth cracking when fanon gets over canon in general.

While the Touhou fandom as a whole could use more canon, /jp/ needs far, far less.

Yeah. I couldn't really give a shit if people change a fact or whatever to suit their creation. Thats fine with me as long as it doesn't get saturated to the point where it overshadows how a character actually is. The problem is the constant "x character is better than x", "x is such a huge bitch", powerlevel threads (Yes, because we totally need to discuss that kind of stuff in a series where all conflict is settled by fucking playfighting), and so on. It would be nice to occasionally get a decent thread that actually discusses something worth discussing.


I kinda see what you are getting at there. I just think /jp/ needs less situations where we even have to talk about this shit. Its not fun having loading up /jp/ and finding 2 "rudest touhou" threads, a power level thread, a "why Reimu sucks" thread, the obligatory 3+ Cirno threads that even Cirno fans hate, and so on.

And about the character insults, it's something like this most the time: it's either a)I like X because Y sucks. Or b)X sucks because she's a bitch and obscures my beloved Y. That's the way I've seen it most of the time and the whole community can go down to just that.

I don't get this whole "baaaw fanon is overshadowing canon" thing you have going. If canon was really that great, fanon depictions would follow it more closely. Simple as that.

Sorry dude, doesn't work that way. We can even take your logic an apply it to something truly vile, for example Star Trek fanfiction.

Use your head, fanon isn't specified to just one straight thing like canon is, not by being ''better'' will it make it more popular to write, you can't write ''canon'', you can only derive from it which in turn leads to fanon. It doesn't matter if it goes to the opposite spectrum of it, the problem is when people take it as fact.

Idiots like you invariably miss the fact that we actually like her the way she is; simply because she's more fun that way. If you can't accept that, along with the fact that Touhou characters in general just aren't nice people, maybe you should find yourself some other fandom.

All that OP said was how he perceives Reimu´s character, the saint-ifying came from posts made by others. OP said how he sees that Reimu is like based on observation throughout the games, ZUN adds something to the characters every game, which includes the manuals (When he called Marisa as ''bold and timit'', people just rejoiced) so he never shows a clear definite image of the characters as they change in every chance he gets. Seeing as how fanon was taking a bit too much of Touhou fans' conceptions he made a thread about both his infering and original conception of what the ''canon'' Reimu is.

There's a difference between having an alternative interpretation and having the One True Interpretation and belittling everyone who happens not to agree. Especially when it goes contrary to source material.

Keep in mind that canonical depictions of characters are a range of traits creating possibilities for several potential personalities rather than a than a single point.

Only, you know, Cirno IS "retarded". Sure, even if you disregard the outright silly and canonically unreliable Akyuu's account, in all of her appearances her act still ranges from extremely childish to outright stupid.

>> No.6670330

Those fanon depictions have a grain of truth to them, so it's just that the arguers miss the point and take the fan works literally. Cirno may not be pants-on-head retarded, but she's one of the dimmer bulbs in Gensokyo. Marisa may have upwards of three girls - and one guy - who want her vagoo, but she's probably doing it unconsciously. So what you're describing is less problems with fanon being honestly inaccurate, and more with those reading it ignoring the truth behind the exaggerations.

To further extend my thoughts, two valid character interpretations may have different degrees of likeliness. Mokou having a secret lust for Kaguya throughout years of rivalry: not very likely. Mokou warming up to Keine after she protects and sympathies with her: quite likely. Having no contradictory points of reference makes an interpretation valid, but the more points of reference a fanon interpretation correlates with, the more likely it is.

Obligated in the "I'm the shrine maiden, so I should at least do shrine maiden things" manner.

>> No.6670381

As valid as an assumption may be, I don't see how they should be inmediately treated as canon, now Im not saying they aren't valid or anything, but sometimes people take such as absolute definite canon, as said in a previous post ZUN adds or changes aspects of the characters constantly so a clear image is and will likely never be seen. A big rage-inducing example of this is TVTropes Touhou page and subpages (coming from the ''Touhou Alternate Character Conpendium'' thread).

Keep in mind that is not that assumptions or fanons are bad or degenerating. But assumptions are just one part of debating canon, I'm not saying not to make them, but what I posted about mainly was the abuse of such mixed with fanon which makes a fake image of Touhous.

If we wanted an extreme of hardcore debates then we'd have to go Umineko on this, where all normal assumption of common sense is shit'd out your nostrils, much like Gensokyo's laws of such.

>FANON (X is a bitch) may get mixed in
>X is a bitch

Uh oh.

The sole difficulty of explaining to people that what they perceive as fanon is actually true and that their position is actually fanon makes discussion with them impossible, as demostrated by this thread.

That was the point all along. Something that people realize is a speculation or a meme is infinitely better and less destructive in comparison.

Take it easy, realize you are always bound to be wrong somewhere. Argue your position instead of complaining about fanon. Also, don't bitch about other sites on /jp/, of course someone who uses TVTropes for any kind of info is going to get horribly misinformed and the solution is to not use it, which used to be a norm around here. I'm pretty certain you're not talking about discussions on /jp/ either, when we used to discuss canon, you had to have several TouhouWiki tabs open in the background at any given time and there was "[citation needed]" every third post.

It also gets tiring at some point, so don't blame people if they simply don't want to do it at a time that you do. Not to mention the fact that more often than not a need for discussion means all sides have valid arguments and the only resolution possible is agreeing that ZUN is inconsistent/contradicting himself, which makes them all the more pointless and people all the less likely to bother.

I always knew you were a troll. So let me get this straight, you don't like this thread yet you decided to bump it? Will you really go so far for attention? I'm filtering you.

Well you'd think that in Gensokyo you would need both personalities
Would Remilia stopped the scarlet mist if Reimu didnt kick her ass?
Would Yukari have fixed the border between life and death if Reimu hadnt beat her?
If she goes out to solve incidents, she SOLVES INCIDENTS, by force if she wants to.
And then, instead of finishing the enemies off, she befriends them, both Reimu and the opponent gaining a powerful ally, and someone to have tea with
Everyone wins, nobody ends up angry, and peace returns to Gensokyo

I was under impression she didn't fix it either way.

Or can it really be flown over by design?

>by force if she wants to

You know she wouldn't want to do it any other way.

>You know she wouldn't want to do it any other way
Considering between MS and EoSD she changed it so force wouldn't matter, it's pretty clear she DIDN'T like doing it by brute force.

Akyuu implies Yukari did it. Reimu was (always) just a figurehead.

Akyuu implies Yukari did it. Reimu was (always) just a figurehead.

Also, violent fights weren't a problem for her. The stalemate that resulted in LACK of fighting was a problem.

Read the books hon, they say that Reimu invented the spell card system. Yukari's the mangler on borders so any gimmick could have been thrown in.

Sure, hon.

That ain't clear, manuals afterwards still clarify the same point, ZUN is bound to talk in that way everytime which makes it look classier, don't suck up every word you see, hon, else we'd all think that Suwako is a corrupted extremist. He even said so in the interviews.

Actually, wait, start by clarifying what exactly was he supposed to say.

I wonder how people love to insult Yukari without any reason for it.

That explains why the border still isn't fixed.
