Alright, one thing I've always wondered about Touhous is the extent and/or exact definitions of their powers. What exactly can they do with them in situations where their power is needed?

For example, Kaguya has the ability to manipulate eternity and the moment, but what the hell does that ACTUALLY mean? And how does conceptual gapping even work?

Yes I have played through all of the games, but I must admit I didn't understand too much of what happened..

It's a ploy to distract you from realizing the strongest 2hu is actually just Orin.

>> No.9329937

there are no exact definitions because its all just fake ass weeb shit if you want to understand power come to the gym with me and we'll get ripped

>> No.9329942

i don't get most of their powers either honestly.
and most people just ignore them unless they're straight foward like manipulation of fire or flowers or some shit.

>> No.9329951

you know, thinking about it now most of the older games' characters didn't have straight forward powers like that, now most do.

Kanako's powers are especially confusing.

And what the fuck is 'Manipulation of Aura'?

>> No.9329968

In theory Chen could become as powerful as Yukari. To bad she isn't very loyal to Ran, being a cat and all.

>> No.9329972

She makes the sky bule.

Look out your window. If you don't live in a highly urbanized area, you should be able to see the horizon. Think of this as the border between the land and the sky. The land and sky are obviously distinguishable thanks to this boundary. Now, if you were to "drag" the sash between the sky and the land, or to manipulate the border between land and sky, you would end up causing the sky to become larger and the land to become smaller, or vice versa. An effect of this might be to cause something that was just on the ground to suddenly be hundreds of feet in the air. Truly a frightening situation to be in. So, look at it this way - manipulating the border between two physical things shifts whatever balance there is in the interaction between those things. Alternatively, by manipulating the border between two things, you can change the manner in which they exist.

Still, this isn't that abstract, since it's still dealing with real things in the real world. Many believe that in this world, there are those things that are true, and those that obviously aren't. This divides reality into two extremes: truth and falsehood. But, since we have two extremes, logically one can imagine a boundary between those two extremes - the border between truth and lies. If one were to manipulate this border, suddenly things that were pure fantasy (flying pigs, for the sake of argument) have become reality - or things from reality have ceased to exist. This is how Yukari is said to have invaded the moon - by manipulating the border between truth and lies, as applied to the reflection of the moon on a pond, she was able to make the reflection of the moon into a manifestation of the actual moon, and so send her youkai army onto it. This is what's truly amazing about Yukari's power - the ability to manipulate the border between completely abstract concepts allows her to fundamentally change reality as we know it (at least in terms of two abstract concepts).

they only use their powers to shoot lots and lots of bullets
