I actually have two questions. 1.) Have you ever played any Bullett Hell games besides Touhou games? And 2.) What part of Touhou do you like the most? (The games themselves? The lore? The memes/community stuff? Something else?)
1. Nope! Might have played a bullet hell flash game as a kid, I think it was called ‘Bullet Heaven’? But that was for like 20 minutes so I don’t think it counts. I’m actually not the best at Touhou so in other danmaku games (which tend to be harder) I think I might actually be worse.
2. The lore! Definitely the lore. The best thing about Touhou is how for a danmaku game it has such a huge, expansive world with so many characters. The music/games/etc. are great too but it’s just Gensokyo and the people in general that sells it for me. PMiSS and SoPM have so much more information that elaborates even further on the characters, and it makes them so lovable.
