Looks like youmu's picked up a sidehustle as a pokemon trainer to pay for yuyukos meals.
>>21664135damn that resemblance is close
>>21664135Here's a better edit from the Futaba thread.
>>21664839send thread plox
I wanna sniffle her crotch and tickle her yummy toes with my tongue!
>>21665092That toshiaki has good taste.
HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN, SWORDBROS?!
>>21667717What are you talking about?
I'm confused: Is it Half-Saitou Half-Youmu or just Saitou as a Half-Human Half-Phantom?
>>21667735brown youmu is shield exclusive
>>21667830What do you mean? She's sword exclusive, actually, just as she should be as a Youmu clone.
>>21664103I like her feet.
>>21667830She’s Sword exclusive you blind retarded fuck, can’t you even bother looking at OP’s pic?
>SaitouOh shit, it's a clone of a Youmu clone.
>>21664103Replacing the ghost gym leader is a pretty amusing coincidence.
>>21668058Oh wow, version-exclusive gym leaders. Now I've seen it all.
We must stop this Youmu clone epidemic that have been going for years
So this is the result of so many faceless old men raping and impregnating Youm throughout the years...
>>21668342Isn't that the trap from that one VN?
>>21670241No, the one you're thinking of is Kurubayashi Shizuki.
>>21670354Where is that other girl from then?
>>21670522https://vndb.org/c8884She's just cosplaying Youmu in that picture, but might as well be inspired by her, too.
>>21669397Why would you want to stop it?
>>21664103>>21664135>>21669397>>21670354>We must stop this Youmu clone epidemic that have been going for yearsNo, finally ZUN! is getting a taste of his own medicine.
>>21671224Joke's on you, he stole Youmu from someone else too.
>>21671446Literally everything ZUN creates is stolen from something according to these people, so take it with a grain of salt.
>>21673265If this character inspires a lot of toned or muscled Youmu art, I'll be happy.
>>21673375She should be at least slightly toned in the first place because of all that sword training.
>>21673716The thought of Youmu's abs turn me on so fucking much.
>>21671542Toho is just reskinned pocky and rocky
>>21674577what the hell is pocky and rocky
>>21674801"If she stripped off those hot pants and showed off her tan lines to me, my dick would get hard. But she could also be a brown girl to begin with."
>>21674065Wouldn't it be sweet to cum all over them and then be forced to lick it off because she'll beat you up if you don't and won't let you mire her abs ever again?
>>21676212The problem with ASTK is that she doesn't have tan lines.
>>21676212what a specific fetish
There will be time when we get new Youmu every year.
>>21676212I would intentionally refuse to lick it off so I get beaten up, then forced to lick it anyway.
I just realized this after posting it in the other thread, but did Pokemon just plagiarize this fan art of Youmu down to the orange part on the ribbon?
>>21679688I bet it's just coincidence considering tons of Youmu fanart out there and the low-quality of that image.Why would someone copy that in particular among countless other things?
>>21679713t. Junichi Masuda
>>21679713Of course, the darker skin, gray eyes and hair with longer bangs, serious look, shorts, black hairband and ribbon with a bit of orange and the general kicking pose are in fact all just coincidences. I bet you know hundreds of characters that all have those exact same features.
>>21669397There is the lewd Youmu as well from that anime with anti-lewd collars.
I honestly hope ZUN sues Nintendo and GameFreak for plagiarism based on preexisting fan work and fan art.Fan art is a rendition of the source material so it by nature belongs to the original creator based solely on copyright laws and the fact that this new character looks similar to the character in the image provided in >>21679688 leads to the suggestion that this is plagiarism. Keep in mind that plagiarism in any form does not need to be a perfect copy, it can be a slight alteration of form, though drawing heavy influence from the inspiration piece that is not specified nor linked or hinted to.It is not a surprise that fans aware of Touhou Project and most notably Youmu Konpaku from the 7th installment of Touhou Project, Perfect Cherry Blossom (2002-2003), immediately thought her of upon seeing this new character coming to Pokémon Sword/Shield because the only difference between the two is a very slight change in hair style, an inversion of the hair piece which puts the bow on the right side (left of the character) instead of the left (right of Youmu), different colored eyes, alternate clothing, a difference in skin complexion, and lack of a duel wielded swords which was replaced with a Pokéball which happens to be one of the most iconic items of the Pokémon series as a whole.Those associated with the design process of such character will plead ignorance and claim to not know anything about the character taking heavy influence from Youmu Konpaku to avoid any blame, but this is almost impossible given the popularity of the series and Youmu Konpaku's recent reappearance in Touhou Project's upcoming 17th installment, Wily Beast and Weakest Creature.There is no other way this can not be plagiarism given how Touhou games are released (now) every two years and based on the short time span between character reveals for both Touhou Project and Pokemon Sword/Shield, this can not be a case of ZUN jumping on the bandwagon since this new character appearing in the Pokémon franchise is only just now appearing as of July 2019 whereas Youmu made her appearance when the next game for Touhou Project was made public and was available as a demo.This might be inspiration but taking from a character well established for well over a decade and changing very little from the source material to make the two distinguishable is nothing short of plagiarism given that the upcoming Pokémon games will be on sale, meaning it has to be bought and there will be a profit, none of which will be going to the original creator of such an iconic design.
>>21680698With due respect, it should be noted that Konpaku Youmu has had canonically silver eyes since the 13th installment of the Touhou Project, Ten Desires (2011) and this is still true as of the 17th installment, Wily Beast and Weakest Creature (2019). The current eye color resembles the one found in the character design of Gamefreak's character Saitou enough to warrant further investigation.It has also come to my attention that Takegarou, known for his work on Katanagatari, might be the character designer responsible for the alleged plagiarism.Takegarou had previously been under suspicion of having plagiarized Konpaku Youmu in 2007.In his work Katanagatari he purposefully had the deuteragonist of the work, Togame, cut her hair to a hair style resembling the one of Konpaku Youmu. As a result, the character in general looked a lot like Konpaku Youmu, in particular her design in the 7th installment of the Touhou Project. It should be noted that this event predates the 11th installment by 4 years and in the 7th installment as well as parts of the 8th installment, the character Konpaku Youmu still has red eyes much like Takegarou's character Togame 3-4 years later.However, as of now, it is still unclear whether the alleged plagiarist Takegarou is indeed familiar with the Touhou Project series of video games.
>>21680926I wouldn't really take it that far. Bob cuts aren't really that uncommon for characters to have, as well as the silver hair. The biggest connection you can really draw would be the bow and maybe the eyes, but even then, other characters have been drawn that way too as seen from the other posts above.
>>21680955The other characters are just as much under the suspicion of plagiarism, mainly because Youmu is both both popular and predates all the other characters with similar features.Maybe there were other before Youmu, but none of them remained popular long enough to influence the 2010s with its many Youmu clones.Here's a picture of Togame for comparison.
>>21680999I still wouldn't say its plagiarism. I'd take it more as inspiration. It would be plagiarism if they took her personality and abilities as well though
>>21680698ZUN himself has thieved for a decent number of earlier Touhou elements. It'd be absolute hypocrisy for him to take umbrage with this. Aside from literal tracing, characters like Akyuu have nearly their entire design wholesale ripped.
>>21680999>>21680926>KatanagatariI felt this was more the essence of Youmu than just a white hair and bob cut
>>21681060I feel like Youmu is really aggressive when fighting, and not a totally helpless moron.
>>21681060I don't consider Youmu to look like a frail an depressed character. She might be easily teasable, but she wouldn't react like that at all.Youmu is really quite the opposite, an overconfident, straightforward character.
>>21681149One thing to keep in mind when fighting is to not give your opponent a moment to react. You must not only strike fast but you must strike hard. Know points of contact that will cause the most pain and they'll walk away saying their everything hurts.If they can still walk that is. People are pitifully weak nowadays.
>>21681149>>21681192Maybe in Wily Beast, but she's normally a dork who gets hypnotized easily and can't even stand up to Rinnosuke
>>21681265You're missing the point. The reason why she couldn't stand up to Rinnosuke was her naïveté. She thought that he actually would be thankful for helping him and instead he tricked her.Being inexperienced describes her much better than being a dork. She's rarely even at fault.Same with the Clownpiece scene: Youmu had the best perception and was the only one to even notice the flame.That should be a good thing, but she just wasn't prepared for the consequences.
>>21679636Nice, I wasn't the only one who thought that 2b was a Youmu-like, especially with the ribbon accessory.
>>21681265She looked pretty violent in PCB, considering that Youmu attacks the protagonist before they can even say anything.
>>21682171But she at least talks, unlike almost all other midbosses
>>21682121Dude everyone who know Touhou think 2B is Youmu-like
nobody know who is youmu only touhofags
>>21681372Even when she knows things she tends to be daft. The thing is, she's overly serious and overly certain. This is why she's called a dork, and this is why all the other characters make fun of her. Like, she's gotten several lessons throughout the series and understood almost none of them.
>>21682787Can that not be applied to literally anything?No one knows who Mothra is except kaijufag.No one knows who Sachiko is except iM@Sfag.No one knows who Battler is except Uminekofag.Hell, I don't think anyone who doesn't play Pokemon past GBA years would even know this Youmu-lookalike.Such a silly broad generalization you brought up, is what I'm saying.
Youmu is the kind of person who is extremely competent, brave, and effective so long as everything is going her way, but the moment anything goes wrong she becomes a helpless dork who's just trying to react to everything happening around her.
>>21676212Yes Yes Yes Yes. I don't want to be beaten up, but maybe just one punch wouldn't be bad if it's from her.
>>21682999I love my cool big sister Youmu!
>>21682999That never really happens during incidents, though.Yuyuko would never let her go to Hell of all places, if she didn't trust her judgment skills.
>>21685935Obviously not, because incidents are made up of one thing she excels at, combat. However any time she's not able to just cut whoever she's talking to or they say something unexpected, she acts and speaks much less confidently, and even becomes passive in some cases, such as in stage 5 of IN, chapter 13 of CoLA, or when Yukari and Tenshi show up in SWR.
>>21686049Incidents are not just about combat. You'd normally think that traveling to a dark graveyard and facing ghosts and the undead there would lead to her being caught off-guard and yet it didn't happen in Ten Desires. Youmu is always passive around Yuyuko and Yukari, in Rinnosuke's case she let her guard down and in SWR Tenshi is the weirdo.The best print work to really understand Youmu is actually the 7th chapter of CiLR since it is written in first person from Youmu's perspective.
>>21686361>The best print work to really understand Youmu is actually the 7th chapter of CiLR since it is written in first person from Youmu's perspective.you mean the chapter where it's revealed she mutters to herself and stutters over her words when talking to Sakuya and Rinnosuke because they both say things that surprise her or catch her off guard?
>>21686468It still reveals that Youmu is quite a focused character and does contemplate things a lot, she's just a bit socially awkward.Things are different during incidents because that's when she is on her guard the most.
>>21686810my waifu can't be this socially inept
>>21686868my waifu can't be this autistic
>>21686917the autism makes it better
>>21682121>>216796362B is literally Youmu but targeted at normans.
>>21690075no, he means the people who inhabited Normandy around 1000 AD.
>>21685935lolwutYuyuko is one of the highest level "does not give a FUCK" characters out there. Youmu isn't even supposed to leave the Netherworld, and Yuyuko doesn't stop her. On the contrary, she orders her to leave at times, and even leaves herself. Hell? Why not.
>>21690919when you don't give a shit about anything but still want to have fun
>>21685935>Yuyuko would never let her go to Hell of all places, if she didn't trust her judgment skills.From the WBaWC dialogue seems more like Hell is just another backyard for Youmu and she is normally babied by the shinigami, everyone says as much.Everyone in hell instantly recognizes Youmu as the dumb carefree gardener from the netherworld and just assume shes on an errand.
>>21671224wow, ZUN is based (on preexisting material)
>>21694469>Hell is just another backyard for YoumuYou do realize that she hasn't reached Hell yet? She starts out at Sai no Kawara, flies over the Sanzu river and has Kutaka in Higan open the gate to Hell.>she is normally babied by the shinigamiNo, she just usually takes the shinigami's ferry across the Sanzu river. She seems to frequent Higan now, which implies that she's now Eiki's errand girl, too.>Everyone in hell instantly recognizes YoumuOnly Urumi does, but Youmu recognizes everyone. She's not more carefree than the other protagonists. All of them flew over the Sanzu river without knowing the way.
>>21696482How would you tell the difference between an inspiration and plagiarism?
>>21699457plagiarism is when it's for schoolinspiration is when it's real
>>21700126Wait, that's facts though :|
>>21680698You know, other than the part that a certain elegant maid was ripped straight from a manga sans wearing glasses.
>>21704284This is not ZUN’s plagiarism, this is GameFreak’s.
>>21696482>>21704284That was just a reference in an obscure doujin game, same with giving her Dio powers.But EoSD became more popular than anticipated, so ZUN hasn't done anything like that since. Notice how even Sakuya's design diverges from its source?Yzak jokes aside, Youmu's inspiration, including her species, is still completely unknown to this day.
its still a cute crossover
>>21704895But I wish there was more fan art of Youmu cosplaying Bea, not the other way around.Even the Cookie fandom is more productive.
>>21708728Even if they did that, it's still be hard to tell who's cosplaying who
>>21704698Still copied a lot from araki though
>>21715344>youmu_yukkuri_bea.pngThat's still ESK-aneki with biim-aniki in the background.
Pokemon is gatcha now. It should stay far away from Touhou
>>21727172Sure, don't mind me trying to get a rare Youmu (with a tan) gacha in Touhou Cannonball and Touhou Lost Word ~ Remained Prayer in Gensokyo.
The lewdest thing in the world is for a girl to cosplay as a barefoot character, and be forced by the outfit design to expose her feet, which are normally hidden inside socks and shoes!youmu's naked feets!
>>21728555>youmu's naked feets!are gritty
Somebody please make a tanned rendition of Youmu's busty sex warrior evolution. My dick needs it.
>>21728555Please stop being a weirdo and have normal fetishes like a normal person.
hearts of youmu
>>21730220Youmu's upbringing was a complete mistake and her busty sex warrior evolution will inevitably turn into a Yandere.Have you ever seen a Yandere with a tan?
>>21731623No get out
>>21731623Youmu obviously got her hidden yandere tendencies from her mother's side of the family.
>>21731623Is it possible to have a yandere slut Youmu?
>>21737326It already happened.
>>21738230How about an exhibitionist Youmu?
>>21737326Don't underestimate a dork in love.
>>21671224You wouldn't know if it's good medicineunless you tasted it yourself
>>21738230Including the "half-phantom" part.
