Only watched the gay anime.
I did one route when it came out. Not much romance but it was fun
They forgot it was otome.
For me, I'd get the boring happy end through a blind playthrough and then lose interest with the rest of the game. I dropped Mashou Megane for now mostly because of that.
TMGS4 update! Just recently finished translating double dates so that was very fun.
I started working on Christmas party stuff but the first one already made me a smidge emotional.
There's also 2 other translators right now actively working so hopefully that will make the translation process much faster. Every little bit of help counts!

Really, you wouldn't, you can't.
How could you?
Genge hurts people who forget about her, and you wouldn't want her to hurt you, would you now?
She doesn't want to, but it's the only way to get what she wants!
It's not her fault there are people in this world that don't recognise the cutest, most adorable demon, that's all your fault!
But if you don't, well then she's gonna break your bones until you do!
Until you never forget her, ever!
She's gonna live FOREVER in your mind!

Promise to feed her, take her on walks, clean up after her and love her will you? Gengetsu's are a big responsibility.

Genge is forgotten, gengillions must bleed.
I heard she was "inspired" by something from shin megami tensei like Shinki and Yumeko, but I have nothing to back that up. Rather than copyright issues, I think ZUN just doesn't want to go back to the AM team now that he's a hotshot.
And then there's his refusal to have any characters recur unless as a single page in a manga or if they were from before UFO.
Really limits the use of all the characters he's made if they only get a page of dialogue that has to be shared with 2-4 protags.
Anyway, Gengetsu deserves love too, even if loving a genge-dere is a painful, painful affliction.

Well, I still think imageboards are fun, though 4chan alone is too cold for my tastes. I'd like for there to be more high quality smaller imageboards, but unfortunately at the moment there's nothing I know of that's suitable. /jp/ has been way too much fun for the past few months, so I'm fine here.

Also whatever skill level nip autist had does not change the fact that purposely you decided to bother him with your presence, even if they declined your challenge. No mean no, he was not interested in your silly dick measuring contest and just wanted to chill out playing against CPU.
You know why Japanese people are generally not fond of foreigners? You're one of the damn reasons.

I've recently been rereading some printworks to refresh my memory for a future Touhou TTRPG campaign I'm planing (there's one RPG coming in a week that has ZUN somehow involved), and I've noticed a something that I've mentioned in a lore thread once: Touhou before 2012 felt a lot more balanced in terms of how grim it was, while Touhou 2012 onwards jumps straight into dystopia, retconing a lot of less grim aspects.
There were 3 printworks that were published in that year. First, Symposium of Post-mysticism. it had higher than usuall amount of grim content, but one thing I want to note is Byakuren's theory about human imagination. From what she said, youkai attained certain traits, like their looks or behavior, from the way common people imagined them. Then, when Gensokyo became sealed, youkai got separated from human gestalt, and thus achieved a certain degree of freedom in how to look and act. Now, Byakuren doesn't exactly know all the ways this could effect youkai, so this is speculation, but from the example she gave (tengu and yamabushi are compared to each other -> tengu gain their good qualities -> youkai are forgotten, Gensokyo is sealed -> tengu lose those qualities and are free to do whatever they want), I think humans tended to humanize youkai, making them about as good and evil as they themselves are, with exaggeration where appropriate, but now that they aren't held back by human imagination as much, their behavior became even worse and more inhuman than even their original myths, with some exceptions (tsurube-otoshi were always violent retards).
Next, Wild and Horned Hermit. It has a fair amount of both light and dark stuff, but one new introduction in chapter 14 makes some fundamental changes in how Gensokyo is perceived - it makes it a police state, where humans are under constant surveillance by youkai. You could say that BAiJR article about the secret history society was the begining of this, but I disagree.
Last but not least, Forbidden Scrollery. This is the last nail in the coffin. Over the course of it basically almost everything bright that was mentioned about Gensokyo in PMiSS, BAiJR and some other sources got retconed. Humans are descendants of exorcists that on average are stronger spiritually than an average youkai, protected by local exterminators and incident resolvers, not to mention local friendly werebeasts like Keine? Nope, they're all pathetic country bumpkins, including Keine, who would all die with a whimper if not for Reimu (and sometimes youkai), and werebeasts are nowhere to be seen. Youkai go shopping to the village in broad daylight, and make for great clients for exclusive night shops and bars? Nope, almost all youkai are hidden and are only there for mischief or politics, night buisinesses would not be a thing until Geidontei a decade later. Marisa being mentioned as soon-to-be youkai magician like it's no big deal, while being presented as a hero? Nope, see Fortune Teller. PMiSS being a public manual on safety and peaceful life? Actually yes, but at this point a lot of the original PMiSS is retconed, and we don't know what's written in the new one. There may be some other things I forgot to mention, but these are the main ones, I think.
The weird part is that all of this got introduced rather rapidly (except some of the stuff in FS, but I assume ZUN had some sort of plan of what to write in mind after the first two, maybe a bit earlier).
Why such change in direction? Why retcon so many things? Was this planned from the beggining? Did ZUN write himself into a corner and felt that the changes were necesary? Was he just in a particularly edgy mood? Wifes influence (married that same year)? What do you think?

>It's not about bloodline at all
It's not? When was that ever confirmed?
Back on topic, do you have a headcanon you liked that got destroyed later on? For me, it was the general idea of how youkai antagonism toward humanity worked in Gensokyo than, becoming a lot more ritualised rather than just random like in the past, and even random attacks are somewhat ritual-like, with a certain order to them:
youkai jumps a human -> human runs screaming / plays danmaku -> both parties go on their way.
I've already stated why something like this is impossible right now. Hell, I would not be surprised if there is some material already that just outright states that villagers don't know anything about spellcards and genuinely believe all fights they see to be real.

Its got its own share of problems but it has a cult following. Do not go to /rog/ or you will see unprecidented amounts of schizo posting, I would maybe advise the /vm/ thread instead
it's a grindfest. i tried anon's server (thanks btw) but i suspect it's mostly a nostalgia thing. maybe back then it worked, but in 2023? ugh.
some people just want to click on shit, watch number go up, dress up and talk to new people, and style on each other in pvp/war. its going to be a grind in low rate, but switching to high rate removes some of the thoughtfulness and investment from the game, just depends. kinda funny to think japanese RO is still popular to this day.
I never got the appeal of MMOs in general. Maybe because I gave up on my first one before it's supposed to get good.
