That fuckin in-universe punk band in Touhou is still the most ridiculous thing

Touhou’s setting is a fantasy world, but it’s set up so that all of the fantasy actually has its roots in the real world; trends and ideas from the real world drift into Gensokyo all the time and the characters do their best to adapt to them

Except none of that has anything to do with the punk band. A couple youkai - two totally unimportant and unrelated stage 2 bosses - apparently reinvented punk rock when they found some leather jackets and sunglasses and decided to scream about their problems in the middle of the night. Just a bird and a dog shouting into the forest about how strict the local Buddhist temple is. We don’t even know if they know what punk rock is

It’s up there with “Seiga Kaku introduces Christmas to Gensokyo as an excuse to steal from everyone” and “Kokoro forms a 48-person theater group in which she is all 48 members” as my favorite pointless Touhou trivia

Which Touhou characters you should hug: a guide
  • Reimu: Yes. She works very hard for very little reward and sometimes wonders if she is appreciated enough. Please give her a hug to show her you appreciate her defending Gensokyo. She needs it.
  • Marisa: Yes! Marisa is a wonderful friend and will hug you back with just as much enthusiasm. This will be a good experience.
  • Rumia: No! She may look cute and while hugging her would be a fantastic experience she is a carnivore and this would not end well for you
  • Cirno: Yes! Hug her and call her strong! She is tiny and deserves love.
  • Meiling: Absolutely! She gives big strong bear hugs and is probably a fantastic person to hug, 10/10.
