So why doesn't Reisen just start every fight by hypnotizing her foes and insta-win every time?

>>20584148Satori can only copy the patterns not the actual abilities of others. She couldn't replicate anything in the list you posted.
>>20584247Alright then why doesn't Koishi just become non-existent and just insta-win every time?
>>20584274that isnt what she does
>>20583670Why are retarded secondaries like you so retarded. HOW IS THIS STILL A FUCKING THING. HOW ARE PEOPLE STILL MAKING THESE KINDS OF THREADS.SPELL CARDFUCKING RULESDANMAKU BATTLES ARE NOT BATTLES TO THE DEATHTHEY ARE GAMES, A SPORT, A DUELIT HAS RULESPLAY THE FUCKING GAMES AND READ THE MANGA
>>20584288I thought spellcard rules didn't apply outside spellcard duels? Either spellcard rules are enforced as a rule of Gensokyo's reality, or they're like some fantastic equivalent of the Geneva Convention - a social contract people abide by because not abiding by it would make everybody unnecssarily nastier.
That would imply the enemy to look at her in the eyes. And let's say when there's multiple bullets flying around, your opponents eyes are the last thing you should be looking at.
>>20584974The OP says EVERY battle, don't give me the fake ignorance technique. Also, 99% of battles in Gensokyo is a spell card duel anyway.
>>20584288>SPELL >CARD>FUCKING >RULESI want a picture of angry Reimu saying that.
>>20584288I play Pot of Greed then end my turn.
>>20585799oh look.... I now have all five pieces to Exodia the Forbidden One. I win.
>>20584974They always apply. Breaking the rules is a big no-no. Possible, just don't do it.That said if you contextualize your ability into an acceptable spell card, it can be allowed. For example, as far as we know Seija's bullshit world flipping is acceptable despite it screwing your movement because Reimu said "yep, okay" to those cards
>>20583670Just close my eyes lol
>>20583670Because ZUN is a horrible writer, how is this not common knowledge yet?>>20585012ZUN is a horrible writer, don't think about it too hard. It's probably just a Jojo reference (I'm not talking about him trying to be just as bad of a writer as Araki)>>20585088>>20584288Not every fight is a spellcard duel. Physical fighting has been canon since the fighters and that one Ibarakasen chapter.Even though we don't know what the rules to those fights are, there's nothing stopping anyone from utilizing their ability to the fullest and turning Gensokyo into an apocalyptic battleground of godlike powers fighting for control, to gain whatever desire they have. A lot of touhou characters have the means to just skip the formalities and aggress on someone or a group for their own gain, and there's no good reason in place that stops all of them from doing just that.Really, the only reason is that they're just all so nice to each other, I guess. Good writing, ZUN.
>>20586743>Physical fighting has been canon since the fightersThose are spell card duels slightly reinterpreted, just like every single other duel in the series including every game in which the rules say one thing, but in the game we see something else>and that one Ibarakasen chapterWhat chapter?Keep in mind that you can fight without the rules just like you can do anything, but getting caught is the real thing.>Even though we don't know what the rules to those fights are, We do.>there's nothing stopping anyone from utilizing their ability to the fullest and turning Gensokyo into an apocalyptic battleground of godlike powers fighting for controlI think you never read the rules. They literally open with explaining why that is now FORBIDDEN:>Duels between youkai threaten to destroy the small world of Gensokyo.>However, a lifestyle without duels will cause the youkai to lose their power.>Accordingly, I would like to permit such duels under the following contract.
>>20584274When Koishi closes her third eye her presence isn't perceived by others but she is still physically present. Also, closing her third eye causes her to lose all emotions since she is effectively putting her ego on pause. I imagine that an emotionless person would have no drive to win Danmaku.
>>20587297That's exactly my point. It's forbidden, but enforced how? You think these girls are afraid of getting caught?
>>20589504We've seen how Reimu deals with rulebreakers if she knows they broke rules.
>>20589504>but enforced howMutually-assured destruction and not being retarded, for one.
>>20583670Because she's just a cute girl, who do you think she is?
>>20589504Considering it's basically Japan they're probably shunned and kicked out of society if they break the rules.
>>20584148How did the Touhous even acquire these absurd powers?
>>20583670what if reisen has mind controlled everyone in gensokyo, the moon and the outside world, and just has them living as puppets to create the touhou world as we know it, because that's her ideal universe?
bunny bunny bunnycan't you see
>>20592580>Mutually-assured destruction and not being retarded, for one.MAD only works because the missiles have to fly all the way across the Atlantic. Some 2hus have powers that let them win decisively before their opponent has time to respond. The only reason they don't is because they're nice, and completely trust all the other 2hus to act the same way.
>>20595520That's hisui not reisen
>>20589504Utsuho didn't care and she still played by spell card rules.Byakuren and Miko couldn't know and they still played by spell card rules.Seija made everyone try to catch her seriously and they still used dodgeable danmaku.Junko's "killer danmaku" is dodgeable.Whatever keeps them from instantly winning certainly isn't voluntary for one.
>>20601046>because they're nice, and completely trust all the other 2hus to act the same wayThis is the root of ZUN's shitty writing. These aren't how self-serving humans with their own desires would act. And don't give me shit about how youkai have a different, less selfish sense of morality compared to humans: they've shown themselves to be perfectly fine with putting others in harms way to serve their own needs. Pretty much every touhou plot is about one girl causing mayhem on a whim. Even >>20592580 , while sound won't be enough of a restraint to last gensokyo forever.>>20601106I can't believe it's 2019.027年 and people are still saving homo memes accidentally!
2 hours to page 10What the fuck is going on
>>20587322I thought her third eye is always closed? Or is that from the story of HM?
I want udonge to hypnotize me against my will
I want Reisen to hypnotize me then rape me
>>20608083why is Reisen's tail blue? And so big?
>>20601046>MAD only works because the missiles have to fly all the way across the AtlanticThe point is these actions can have immediate retribution. Just because one character could hypothetically take down another for some reason doesn't mean they could automagically get away with whatever they wanted. There is nothing to be gained by making enemies of everyone and there are easier and less risky ways to attain goals than psychopathic violent means that can potentially shake their own livelihood, so why does this always come down to this dumb "I could just kill everyone and that solves everything" nonsense. Every time someone makes these kinds of criticisms I really have to wonder how they think these scenarios would "realistically" work out if "written well". People describing Gensokyo as "everyone is just nice and trust each other for no reason" also makes me wonder if they know the material they're talking about at all.>>20606415>Even >>20592580(You) , while sound won't be enough of a restraint to last gensokyo foreverI honestly don't think that is even a point necessary to defend, especially because it depends so much on theoretical situations that may or may not have solutions we simply don't know about. You have to assume there are no plans for no particular reason. I imagine it wouldn't be too difficult to write solutions that Yukari etc has behind the curtain for these scenarios, but I don't think ZUN should have to write this just to stave off this kind of criticism. I also don't think it would be unbelievable for none of these crises show up within the lifespan of the series, so why bother addressing it?One could even envision an interpretation that the reason the oni are in Former Hell is because their way of life couldn't jive with how Gensokyo operates and in order for some more headstrong oni to not brutally fuck everything up they made a deal and were given Hell, which isn't even that crazy to consider. The Vampire Incident is also a soft version of this.
>>20584148Why doesn't Patchery start every fight by crushing her foe under her massive fat rolls and win every time??
>>20610354She's too slow
>>20583670dumb bunny only useful for her sex appeals>>20584148shut up
for the same reason yukari doesn't just open a gap into your chest cavity
>>20584148>So why doesn't Junko just start every fight by doing something idk and insta-win every time?a good reminder as any that junko is freaking lame
>>20611784you sayin you want to fug bunnies?
>>20611820Because she already has my heart?>>20611827Say that after she turns you into pure shit.
>>20584148I feel bad for marisa but i know she will copy the cyanide one technique.
>>20623479In touhou 17 Reimu wakes up in the petting dungeon of Eientei and soon realizes that everything since touhou 8 stage 5 was a bad dream. Then the plot twist is that touhou 17 is a good game. You heard it here first.
>>20623603Stop shitposting in the jay ZUN, and get back to work.
