Yeah, that's because their main victims are those poor Outsiders.

I don't see your point. Most youkai can't easily get pass the border and if thy do, they'll have to answer to Reimu.

>> No.9609186

Outsiders pass through the border and stumble into Gensokyo sometimes.
They either get eaten or are lucky enough to find Reimu or the human village.
Reimu then leads them out, except when they decide to settle there

>> No.9609188


Cool secondary bullshit.

>Because of the youkai's civilization of magic, the youkai grew to be powerful enough to freely open even the Great Barrier sealing Gensokyo.
>Food-gathering teams would go out at regular intervals to hunt humans. Of course, the youkai couldn't let the humans know that they were on to them. Under the guise of various accidents and incidents of people running away from home, the youkai hunted humans. A simple missing person would barely even make the news; meanwhile, the humans living in the human world only multiplied.

>> No.9609189

I thought they have annual hunting parties to the Outside.

I'm sure it was mentioned somewhere in canon, like in the prologue of EoSD, or PCB, or something.

I speculate Yukari is behind it because she's the one who can control the Border other than Reimu.

>> No.9609193

Ah, that's what I was talking about.

>> No.9609197

inb4 the pro-youkai guys bring up us hunting animals to extinction to justify the youkai killing humans.

Now where's that essay I've read one day that talks about how the fact of youkai eating humans is a good thing? It even has the author stating his distaste of mainstream religion so it's definitely written by a hippie hipster.

>> No.9609225

If we take the canon source you are talking about serious then it's safe to assume that leaving the border is actually pretty easy.
But someone here mentioned once how that particular book is not trustworthy

Everything is untrustworthy if you're talking about Touhou canon.

Moriyas managed to get a lake and shrine through the border. Mamizou entered Gensokyo with no problems.

Breaching the barrier is not hard for strong youkai.

Aside from any porousness weird things it even has a standard way in and out, the Hakurei Shrine. It's funny that none of the characters ever consider trying it when it's right there where they hang out all day.

>> No.9609361

Yeah, that's why I think the Border is more for the humans rather than the youkai.

Think about it. If you're a human, the only way you can leave Gensokyo is by the permission of Reimu or Yukari. In a way, you can think of Gensokyo as a gigantic jail, designed to keep the humans in just to preserve youkai.

>> No.9609363

There are several ways in and out of Gensokyo that do not involve going through the barrier but are not accessable by normal humans.
You can travel freely to Gensokyo via heaven, hell, the neatherworld and the moon. None of which are currently acessable by normal humans.
The Moriya Shrine though was LET IN by Yukari. Reimu wasn't being active enough so she brought in competition, being Gods Kanako and Suwako could come to Gensokyo anytime they chose-apparently they didn't know about it until recently-through any of these alternate routes. But bringing the shrine itself, that had to come through the barrier.

>> No.9609379

>The Moriya Shrine though was LET IN by Yukari

The manga shows that things that are obsolete and forgotten in the real world migrate to Gensokyo all the time...

Okay wait, lakes got forgotten and migrate to Gensokyo?

Sorry but that's utter bullshit. It was Kanako's plan. And I really doubt Yukari wants all this religion wars crap in her peaceful Gensokyo.
