This is something I know a normal person would rage at, but when that happened to me I was just laughing.

Hourai Elixir is so hard, I would totally rage.
Can I go to Gensokyo if I'm forgotten?

Doing attempts at EoSD LNB:
>gameovers to Scarlet Gensokyo
"Well, never mind. Guess I'll try again."
>perfects Stage 5 for the first time ever and enters Stage 6 with four spare lives then gameovers to Scarlet Gensokyo
"Urgh, that hurts! Well, I guess I can give it another credit even though I'm not gonna get anything this good again anytime soon."
>perfects Patchouli and gets to Remilia with four spare lives then gameovers to Scarlet Gensokyo

No seriously, what?! This. Freaking. Game. I don't even think there are appropriate words to react to this. And no, I'm not fine!

Ehh!?! EASY MODO!?!

I am halfway on normal now, you happy?
Anyways, after clearing Imperishable night in normal like months ago... I tried 1 run again.

I died several times on Keine. Hell, I felt too fast on Marisa/Alice team and too slow from the Border team. The hell? I guess thats a bad effect from playing too much Marisa on th10-later.

Eh, I'm chill. To be honest, I never actually played against Reimue for no actual reason. Maybe Marisa was too fast for me because of the input delay. Or maybe th10-16 has completely different engine.

Who knows.

Anyone knows the touhou boss rush game for android? The one that has 5 stages? I aced all of those in normal and hard (except Satori, I do not know why I fail at her) but for some damn reason I can't pull it off in the real games.

Life sucks. Hehe

Curved lasers.

Curved lasers.

My brain just can't comprehend them. I either get his by some random stuff trying to predict a curved lasers path or get straightup hit by them due to brainlag.

Got to Okina on LNBNR, with only three misses by that point.
I then proceeded to die to literally everything after Halo and gameovered. Fun times.

Things I've done (and maybe will improve):
SA L6MNB | SA Lunatic 3b Scorerun | MoF LNB | PCB LNB |DDC LNB

You could say I'm new to 2hu. I'm close to a month in on attempting to 1cc Eosd and am at about 34 or so attempts and it may sound strange but I seem to only be getting worse as of late. I play for about 2 hours straight at a time and build up a little bit of familiarity and reflex only to lose focus and have it completely vanish after continued attempts. I know I shouldn't play these games if I'm not good at them but I'd like to put at least EOSD under my belt. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

I'd say losing focus after a while is normal - when I was doing LNB-attempts I noticed that my best attempts would happen at the beginning of my lengthy playsessions. For 1CC's in particular I also had the problem that as I got more comfortable with dodging all the patterns I also got less willing to bomb which led to dying a lot with bombs in stock. Maybe you're having the same issue?
Don't worry about feeling that you're getting worse. If you're trying something for a long time, chances are on that you're also going to have some bad days just because you statistically have more opportunities to do badly. It might also just be your standards rising - when starting out with something, being bad is normal but if you do well it feels amazing. The more you go on, the more does doing well become normal and when you happen to play lousy it feels like being "worse than you should" and thus really bothering. This can't really be helped in my experience - just stick with it and you'll get it eventually. Seeing how you've stuck with it for a month without giving up you should definitely have the perseverance necessary for this. And perseverance is the only thing that's truly required for those games, after all!
"I know I shouldn't play these games if I'm not good at them" - dear god, reading something like this upsets me every time. Please don't! Everyone who's good at Touhou now got there because of playing the games, even when they were bad. Also, what is bad? There are players who can 1CC some games on Lunatic without even using bombs and still consider themselves "bad". Being in a community is great, comparing yourself to otherwise is nice too, but don't take it too seriously. It's best if you play for having fun.
If you don't see any improvements over some time you can try learning better strategies (quite some hard parts in EoSD can be made absolutely easy with the right strategy). There's no shame in copying strategies from others, watching their replays, searching on YouTube and the like. Trying different shots may help too, if only for being a change when you get bored over trying the same thing for too long.
Question of personal interest - what difficulty are you attempting and what's the farthest you've gotten yet? I wish you all the best of luck; also you may send me a private message if you have specific questions.

Get this, I was just on my best run of PCB so far, (I'm pretty new to it so please don't laugh). Just about up to the prism rivers with about 6 lives and 3 bombs and realized I had to leave for work and instead of pausing the game and alt tabbing like any sane schmuck would do, I instantly alt+f4'd. I promptly collapsed immediately after as the impact of my actions hit my brain like a mack truck. Here's to hoping I can get that run back later.

You can. It's heartbreaking to lose a good run to something silly like that, but if you can get that run in the first place, you can always get another run that's as good or even better. I can't count the number of times I've lost a run to pausing and then hitting "R" when I get back to the game -- I've played enough Touhou to have built that up as a natural association.

As for EoSD, don't worry about it. You'll continue to have fluctuations between good runs and horrible failures, but overall your playing strength will improve over time, and you'll definitely get that 1cc if you keep at it. My first 1cc when I was a new player took three weeks, and that was MoF, which is generally considered an easier game.

I recommend practicing the latter stages separately in practice mode first. It's easier to learn and less stressful when you only have to worry about one stage at a time. After you're comfortable with all of them, 1cc should be within reach.

Lost an Easy NMNBNR with a tiny healthbar portion remaining on the final card. Fortunately, it was my very first attempt, so it probably won't take too long to get back there.

Still, Autumn final is definitely my most hated Easy card in the entire series.

Tfw you reach DDC stage 6 with 7 lives and 2 bombs and Shinmyoumaru robs everything except one spare life.

That was my first somewhat decent DDC Hard 1cc, but the fight against Shinmyoumaru in this run was particularly upsetting. I've died on multiple spellcards that I usually could capture with some effort. I guess I got a bit cocky now that I've finally managed to gather and maintain a decent amount of lives before reaching stage 6.
Normal 1cc: EoSD, PCB, IN, PoFV, MoF, UFO, TD, DDC, LoLK Legacy, HSiFS
Hard 1cc: IN, DDC
Extra clears: MoF, DDC, HSiFS

Goals: Going Extra Hard!

Not sure if this is the right thread for this. Not raging. Just very very sad.

Got a 1-miss EX clear with the miss on Mishaguji after I'd killed it. I was so looking forward to sharing that on TRS. Then I accidentally selected quit without saving replay.

Devastated.
