Have you ever asked yourself what

“Abyssus abyssum invocat” actually means ?
Here’s an explanation for you:

Written in latin this sentence is standing in the bible.
( Vulgata, psalm 42,8)

Abyssus is an old synonym for brink.

But Abyssus is also another word for underworld or even hell, especially used in the Greek Mythology.

So literally the meaning is “Hell calls hell”

But if you consider the the religious background; the true meaning behind is

“One misstep leads to another”

It’s more like a warning,
“that the first step in the temptation to go astray from what is right (or morally correct) is difficult to prevent. However, we must always be on guard to strive for what is ethical and honorable.”

This phrase embodied the challenges an individual faces and the ideals it strives for

So you can also say

“One must descend before ascend”
or “Descend to Ascend”

So compared to the whole Projetct Darkage , Dogma, Ugly, Undying….

This is very clever Mr. Ruki ;) ;) ;)

It is now time for Maria's shitty worldbuilding headcanons about the kappa race, their anatomy, their morphology, their society, in the touhou universe

Ok, so. First things first, let’s remind ourselves what a kappa originally is.

The kappa is that one japanese monster that looks like a cross between a monkey/human and a turtle. They’re known for being massive assholes, drowning people in the water they live in and are eating cucumbers. When they’re not eating cucumbers, they’re eating humans’ souls from… the asshole. The very special asshole. How impressive!

You all know that our boy Jun'ya Oota aka ZUN loves to make his characters cute human girls. All of them. No exception. And the kappa doesn’t escape to the rule of BECOMING THE MOE. If some species in touhou project have multiple representatives (Suika and Yuugi for Onis, Aya, Hatate, and Momiji for Tengus…), we only have one, fully named kappa known in touhou: Nitori Kawashiro (the rest of the kappas being storiless, unnamed background characters in touhou 13.5: HM). And dang she’s cute.

Seriously though, when did THIS

Became HOTTER than THIS

Well, I won’t answer this question, but I will try to pull off my headcanons about the kappa species in touhou. I will talk about how i imagine their anatomy, their morphology and how they work as a society (because most kappas in the myths are solitary).

DISCLAIMER: These are only my opinions on the matter and I’m not ZUN himself, so they can be wrong. Feel free to disagree or to agree with them.

I’ll put everything under a readmore for your well being! Now, let’s go for a journey into Gensokyo.
