Funny that gilde went over that because I was doing exactly the same all day today after having meant to for like two weeks. I also definitely got the impression that what he was actually saying with that piece of conversation isn't congruous with how people here have taken it, and I think it would be apt to not think too hard about interpreting it because all that's going to happen is the game comes out and people go "hurr that's not what he said before durr". Some other random tidbits:

Quote
ZUN "It's not that I've become resistant to alcohol, it's that alcohol has become integrated into me; my body no longer views it as a foreign substance. Wine isn't currently well-integrated so I'm busy integrating that now. Wine is tasty."
Quote
[18:43:22] <Drake> pub manager says he hears a lot about how certain alcohol pairs better/worse with certain foods but people should just pick what they like
[18:43:31] <Drake> zun says he agrees
[18:45:37] <Drake> happens a lot with wine, says people should stop asking for recommendations and let people decide for themself cause their tastes are different
[18:47:03] <Drake> "i don't like people that just ask for recommendations at a restaurant, even though it's just cause they can't decide"
[18:49:31] <Drake> "it's much better to live in a world where people decide for themselves whether they like a thing or not based on their own tastes; even if something ends up bad at least it was them that made that assessment"
Quote
[18:59:21] <Drake> also there's some rant that seems to be about how stories of otaku overcoming the world are becoming popular, when really they shouldn't be glorifying the life of otaku and romanticizing bullying and depression and the like
[18:59:57] <Drake> but i can't get any specifics
Quote
ZUN "I've been getting comments that for C92 the 樂 in 上海アリス幻樂団 has become simplified (楽), but really that's been the case with Comiket for a while now"
U2 "Can't they read?"
ZUN "Maybe it's that they can't use the old-form characters so they're just all changed. In all of them I've participated in it's turned out that way so if someone could please verify that"
ZUN "It's become more of 'Did he change the circle name?', but when some other people see it they just call them secondaries"
Okonogi "Isn't it fine, being a secondary...?"
ZUN "I'm happy there are secondaries. Saying 'secondaries' is a bit much, but I'm happy there are new fans"

So HSIFS is going to be more than a mere incident involving why seasons are happening at random?

if so

it'll make things more interesting

highly unlikely though

The true incident is almost literally always not what it first appears.

Just to be absolutely sure: When is this game going to be released? Is it in the 10th? (9th for us)?
I've been playing the demo over and over. I can't wait to play the full version.
I will also admit these recent reveals by ZUN are actually getting me quite curious.
I need something to forget my sad college life after all

The nova of the ocean of the cleverness
Comiket doors are open from 10 AM to 4 PM JST; ZUN's tabling on the first day, which is the 11th in Japan. (So info on the game will start rolling in on the evening of the 10th in the West.) For people who can't get it at Comiket, the game will be available from JP retailers starting August 31 (in JST once again, I'm assuming).

Quite likely, actually.  The Lunar invasion in 15 didn't turn out to be what we all think.

When you get a copy of it, tell us your thoughts of personally playing it if you can. I feel like this'll be interesting.

lol whatever the Japanese original is, I won't ever use the word "secondaries" the way 4chan wield it, even in a context of showing disapproval of its users.


In today's (Aug 9) Touhou Station #4 stream, ZUN began by revealing that his grandmother had passed away 5 days before the master copy deadline, and he absolutely needed to spend 2 days back at his hometown attending the funeral. He considered giving up on Summer Comiket, but the print company (for pressing the disc) gave him one additional day to finish the game.

At the end, he also said AoCF is "30% complete".

My condolences to his family...  May God be with his family and comfort them all...

And I think it's safe to say AoCF isn't being released this year anymore...

Other things:
The show started with a survey report on Touhou doujin circles, except only 16 out of 117 surveyed circles responded.

ZUN: "If you have worked hard, you can easily achieve about 90% satisfaction. You need perseverance and spending money to bring it up to 100%."

Stories of "biggest loss you ever had":
- 6,000 yen: Nobody bought the circle's first ever (photocopied) doujin. (10 yen * 20 pages * 30 copies = 6000 yen)

- 400,000 yen: Respondent: "As expected, it didn't sell."

- 50,000 yen: Respondent: "People didn't get references to Ephemeral Moon..."
ZUN: "Ephemeral Moon was not very well liked when it came out, but has plenty of fans these days."

- 15 million yen: Due to using an expensive printing/binding format.
ZUN: "There is no loss [in the fiscal sense] in making doujin, because it involves no capital."

On changes they are seeing:
- The number of young fans have increased.
- The backlash against people who don't know a lot about the original Touhou (ah yes, "secondaries") have receded. It has become easier to declare yourself someone who only recently became a fan.

Part 2 had guests play the Last Words from IN. ZUN called "Unseaonsal Butterfly Storm" easy. He got immediately shot down by "Ancient Duper" himself.

Possible Winter Comiket release?

i would say that it be a better approach than getting it done by Fall reitaisai.

Honest question: Is that spellcard actually easy?

Uh, I've been kind of detached from Touhou stuff for the past two months, what is the status currently? Development is done and we're waiting for ComiKet now?
1CCs:
- EoSD, ReimuA - easy (INVALID due to 40% slowdown)

...and that's all. Really!

AoCF still in development hell.

The Hype^2 post contained a reference to downloading the full game. It was most likely deleted for discussing/encouraging piracy, which is forbidden.

We don't know your country, friend.
I do find this pretty silly, though - but this isn't the place to discuss this forum's rules. I'm more interested in if ZUN refined the scoring system.
