I'll look into it if this many people say it's good.

Long quote from Sohee:


You know, after pointing out all the good and bad things, you still haven't given us a clear conclusion on your take of the anime. You post was very well written and informative, I'd like to hear what you thought about the anime though I'm going to presume that you took it in a negative way?

At first I didn't know what to expect though when I read the list of Seiyus, I was majorly impressed. Looking at the trailer, the artwork seemed a little mediocre, though it is explainable because Maizake is a doujin circle, not a major commercial company such as Bandai, Sunrise blah blah etc who try to preach to audiences of a large column whereas I think that this anime is specifically for Touhou fans. And I guessed that it was attempting to copy Zun's distinctive style of [some might say bad] drawings. But that isn't to say that I wouldn't completely hate it if it was drawn in a spectacular clean cut fashion.

Also, another thing that I predicted was that Patchouli's voice was going to be too sweet/cute because Mikako Takahashi is known for acting as Misao in Lucky Star who has an adorable voice and I fully expected Patchy to have a dull/monotous voice because of her somewhat bored/negative attitude.

Once I watch the first episode, I'll probably have a clearer view on the anime though I'll be looking out for those things that Sohee said.

My views may be slightly biased because i am against the anime to begin with since it would mislead newcomers all over
because i support the games[i bought 3, 2 were gifts] the rest i downloaded off from NEET due to it being impossible to purchase overseas from Japan.

I took it slightly negatively, because i was one of the few who are against the anime to begin with, ever since the IOSYS flashes became popular on 4chan, elitist "game" fans like myself enjoy shooting down others who dont know anything about the games at all, even if they constantly enjoy spamming the meme's like Yukkuri Shiteitte Ne[Take It easy!], scream out E-rin E-rin, just because they watch Cool & Create's Flowering Night recurring performances every year.

It stings me as a fan, to see a spellcard potrayed incorrectly. It might also be the same for ZUN as a hardcore spellcard mathematician[i think i just made this word up or spelt it incorrectly]

In fact, i find it amusing if i recite their favourate characters signature spell card and they dont even react to it XD
Hypocrites? bah, my elitist side is showing again.

Also i was dissapointed that Maikaze did not put emphasis on the Music and Spellcards. Which is what Touhou is known for, visuals and sound. Touhou is like a rhythm game, try playing Touhou Scarlet Weather Rhapsody[Hisouten]
All of the story mode background music, backgrounds and transitions blend in together.

For the STG's, usually when the chorus kicks in, the character finishes her precursor card[grey life bar] and starts unleashing torrents of bullets at you. And sometimes, you get so preoccupied humming the tunes, you just die anyway even though you heard it like 200 times and know how to evade the pattern.[i sometimes scream Yukarin-rin when the chorus of necrofantasia starts, its a bad habit to do even though im alone sometimes]

But the Touhou anime characters cannot be taken seriously, because it is canon and in the view of a fan [or some random wannabe] to begin with. Partly because 80% of the dialogue in touhou are taunting each other over their racial affinity such as Humans to Youkai and Oni to Humans, and haughty remarks made when the character defeats him/her.. 20% of the storyline is in the game boxes cover, which people dont have due to them downloading it off doujinstyle. Also the characters are introduced in the booklet with a bio. Meaning those who play the games might only see the character, know their spellcards, but do not know where they come from, what is their affinity to other races and bloodlines and etc.

Other things to note of
Reimu appears to have 6 fingers in 5.05 btw, and this is also something that zun did incorrectly before in mystic square[th4]
This might be fanservice in the weirdest form
Marisa's character is correct [tomboyish nature, but the hyperactive side isnt shown yet]
Aya's character of enjoying the pleasure of misleading people is shown[swr scenario where she makes Reimu follow her and get lost]
China[Hong Meirin] hasnt spoken a word yet
Koakuma isnt present in the library, nor are any of the faeries or ridewords.

It appears that they are ordering the characters not by series, although one may assume that they are going to finish introducing the entire cast of scarlet devil mansion [th6] and move in order.
Cirno and Rumia are not introduced yet. but one may assume that Yukari Yakumo is responsible for the thefts due to her ability to control boundaries and move through dimensional gaps in boundaries[something like teleportation] and also transport them.
But one might assume that due to Yukari Yakumo's character of that she cannot be bothered to play such foolish and childish pranks. Aya might be responsible. Since she appeared as the third character.
There are possibly three culprits if we take Th7 and Th10 characters[i know aya is playable in th9[POFV] and STB, but 10 is where she has her own exclusive stage with no A side or B side projectiles]

Although their next release might be either Reitaisai, or Comiket 76, ill be looking foward to critisize it even though if no one might be listening, as a duty of being a self proclaimed "loyal" touhou fan to ZUN

Youmu
Aya
Yukari

Maikaze would obviously want to introduce the more important and stronger characters first. Instead of the newer ones like Hinanai and Utsuho. in which you would have to have an episode where in game scenario will have to be copied over, otherwise it is impossible for them to make an appearance unless its like one of those unprovoked battle you usually see with Reimu asking the subject "who are you?" then starts beating her up as "usual"
