I showed Touhou to everyone in my close circle of friends.  One of them is lightly interested in the actual games, and plays from time to time.  Another plays occasionally now, but is mostly interested in the fandom.  And one is now almost just as obsessed with Touhou as I am. :V  She's totally into the fanbase, the games (she's getting close to 1CC-ing PCB on Normal), and is planning on cosplaying as Flandre at her next anime convention.

>Everyone jawdrops

When they see Touhou art on my binder or my computer, they usually ask me what anime the art is from...

The friends that I've showed gameplay to are quite interested in it, I think I'll let them play using my computer the next time I see them...

"Why are you killing the fairies!?"
They think I'll think that they'll do (A) so they'll do (B) because I wouldn't think they'd think of that but then because they might think I know what they're thinking they'll do (A) after all because I wouldn't think they'd think that way.

Only person who had seen me play Touhou was my cousin. He saw me playing PCB once and was like "Dude, how old are you? Stop playing these stupid childish games..."
(fyi, I still suck at the games. Truth is, I can't even 1cc it on Normal yet but that was one of my attempts to :derp:)
Me: O really? If this is childish, why don't YOU give it a try?
Him: Yea, sure whatever... *sits down, starts game on IJI MODO*
Me: *watch*
Him: *Pichuu~n'd by Letty* This game sucks! *Pichuu~n'd a few more times* This sucks, I don't see the fun in this *leaves*

I just introduced touhou to a friend of a friend online... Only to hear half an hour later that they 1cc EoSD on Lunatic... I've been obsessed with Touhou for over a year and I can't get to Remilia on hard. I'm now questioning its humanity and my reason to keep living   :colonveeplusalpha:

They reacted in unison when seeing: "lol space invaders"

makes this face like I'm showing them Hitler's baby pictures and says something like "Doesn't this hurt your eyes?" or "Ugh turn down the volume on that."

I participate in alot of loose Rps with my friends. one of which was a jappenese monster Rp... The Dm did not knw what a nue, tengu, karakasa, moon rabbit, living object, or yageratsu was. Then after showing him examples ..."Holy **** thats over powered, are those all bullets? How can you dodge all that?" 
Also people usually ask about whats going on, why are you shooting little girls, why are you a girl, are there no guys?
There are 2 items I believe can solve any problem
1. The Doctor's sonic screw driver
2. Marisa's 8 trigrams reactor

Best friend number 1 doesn't really care for the games (he isn't into shmups) but he will watch some of my better replays (like me perfecting Hijiri on easy). He is learning the piano though and after playing touhou songs (mainly piano versions) for an entire night while at his house he got interested enough to agree to learn some of them to play on piano :D


Best friend number 2 who is easily as big a anime geek (Hell we became friends after the realization that we where both lolicons)  as I am has almost been completely converted to Touhou :D. It was a slow but sure process, starting with flash videos and arranges, then followed by me getting him to read some of my favorite doujin. Finally I got him to play some of the actual games. Now he wants to eventual do his own touhou doujin and we are both contemplating a touhou visual novel game and such :3


Other than that, I was already a year or so out of High School before I actually got into Touhou so I could never had the chance to show it to some of my classmates.

I did let a friend play it once... He never told me anything about it...
One, day he saw me entering a touhou website, and he was all " How can you remember those super long names?!" :V

sigh...


Later, i told one of my closest friends about touhou, she usually likes this kind of things, so i expected to have more luck...
She had heard about bad apple, and likes cirno... but nothing else...

And recently she mentioned, the "they are all lolis" fact ¬¬

Friends? We'll call passers-by that.   ;)

Anyway, I play Touhou at lunch or breaks during class, so it gets noticed fairly often. Reactions are primarily awe at the shiny, colorful bullet patterns.  A few people have wondered how on earth Touhou games are playable without pulling your hair out. When it's not that, it's usually a comment on the character if it's fanart browsing or if they just so happen to pass by when a character declares a spell card. "She must be mean, using knives in an attack!" was one I remember in particular, because it wasn't about Sakuya... it was about Byakuren in Double Spoiler, hahah.

I'm also called insane/lolicon/obsessed/etc. :V

I'm pretty in the closet with Touhou irl, but once in a while I'd show certain close friends for shits and giggles.

Their reactions range from: "HOW THE FUCK DID YOU DODGE THAT" to "wow, the music's pretty nice" to "dude why are they all little girls..."

Only person I 100% openly fangirl with is my boyfriend. Showed the games to him a couple months ago and he's loved it (and Sakuya >.>) ever since.

On the contrary. In fact I'd say the fact that many of the accusers know what lolicon means, could mean that they're too scared to admit it themselves :V

well, my schoolmates don't know what lolicon means, so they just simply call me a pedophile.  :V

I made the mistake of explaining lolicon to my anime club, and it ended up spreading beyond it a bit. :V

I also got a new reaction that was simply amazing. Someone walked by as I was "talking" to Shou Toramaru before the battle... She totally fangasmed and said he was "SO CUTE." ...Yeah. Explaining that was weird.

I just play touhou whenever and wherever, so lots of friends see me play

most reactions range from "that's hardcore, you're good" to "STOP PLAYING THIS GAME AND OPEN COD" (btw i was doing extra IN)

however I DID manage to get 2 friends interested.
one of them plays when he has free time
another became a big fan of touhou and we laugh at other friend's reaction while we talk about touhou in front of them

Me & Friend: commoners, can't understand them

I showed a replay of somebody beating Yukari to a group of friends:

At the fight's start: *explosive laughter at the ammount of bullets*

As the fight progresses: *no way... / how can you dodge THAT / these people have no lives / etc*

As the replay reaches border of life and death and I notice the guy playing it is going for the timeout: "See now, this attack isn't even hard to avoid."
friends: yeah, it's pretty sparse...
*30 sec mark*
friends: *explosive laughter*

Also heard during some point of the replay: "So, do you get to see the blonde chick nude after you beat her?"

Short version: I couldn't get them interested. :P

At a friend's house to have lunch and watch a basketball match afterwards, another friend an I bring Touhou along because we're not really interested in the match and start playing in the other room:

"Well at least it's more colorful and interesting than the basketball match"

"Wait so did you just stand there at the bottom of the screen and none of that hit you?" (that was Rainbow wind chime)

"This looks like those Space Invaders games I played when I was a kid"
"Wanna try?"
"Sure"

Well, here's a story from a while back.
I was just chillin' at the library, playing some 12.3, when a friend of mine shows up. We'll call 'im Specs, because that's his nickname.

Specs: *Sees me playing as Sanae* Who's the green haired girl?
Me: Sanae Kotiya/Kochiya, Shrine Maiden of the Moriya Shrine.
Specs: Uhh...
Me: It's japanese, don't worry about understanding it right off. *finishes the fight with Sea Opening - The Day the Sea Split*
Specs: ....THATWASAWESOME. @.@
Me: Oh, that? just one of her regular spellcards, I use it a lot. *goes to play as another character*
Specs: Play the green one again.

Of course, this eventually got me to talking to him about Touhou, and I told him how to get the games.
Haven't seen him much since then though, so I wonder if he managed to get any of them for himself?
He never found the shooters very interesting, but he seemed to like the fighters a fair bit.
