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.
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.
