I recognized Hijiri`s theme the minute I heard it, even though it was the first-time facing against her.
Either it was one of those crazy Deja Vu moments, or her theme is based of a song I`ve heard before and yet to find/remember it XD

Other than that...>_>; I can`t think of anything in particular at the moment

Although Hartmann`s youkai girl sounds like the style of Karl Amadeus Hartmann`s songs, which is interesting considering the song title; although we know where the name Hartmann was more likely to come from xD

There's a women's clothes store near here called Patchouli.
Funny thing is the clothes it sells look like something Patch would wear if she ever got out of her pajamas.
Don't forget about the Marisa stores. (I suppose you have them in Rio too?)

(That's the actual jingle.)

There's a song sung by the Taiwanese pop idol group S.H.E that sounds quite a bit like Love-Colored Master Spark, but I don't know what the song is called...

Also, I remember hearing a Thai song that sounds very similar to Apparition Stalks the Night, but I don't know what it's called as well...

Byakuren's scroll runes remind me of the attacks in 07 Ghost. Do they have a name? Not sure, I never really read past a few chapters, but somehow this still popped up in my head.

Suwako and Sanae kind of remind me of Rika and Hanyuu(Higurashi). An ancient Goddess who acts like a little kid and her shrine-maiden descendant? Except Suwako and Sanae don't have friends that attempt to brutally murder eachother.

But seriously, ZUN himself had said that Touhou is one big fangame series.  One of the reasons he thinks Touhou should stay strictly on the realm of doujin. Many  of the songs, characters, and other aspects of the game are influenced or outright taken from other sources. Despite me saying that, there are very few things I find similar to other stuff. I have zero ability to recognize that stuff.

In one of the songs we were playing in my school's concert band, the first four notes in a part of the bass line sounded almost exactly like U.N. Owen Was Her. Probably similar intervals or something. The people playing the part had to keep repeating it to get it right, and I was mentally humming the song every single time...

The very beginning of the time travel theme in Jay Chou's movie Secret always reminds me of Doll Maker of Bucuresti.

Oh, obviously it's influenced. I wouldn't say outright taken, though. But the music's still awesome so it doesn't matter.

There's a Japanese student in one of my college classes named Yuka.  I'll have to take another look at her to see if she does resemble the Touhou Yuka.

Shouldn't that thread be more like seeing or imagining Touhou-related things in non-Touhou stuff?  It's true that there is a student in my class named Yuka!

I don't see how Yuka (not the sunflower) is related to the sunflower youkai Yuka actually.

Other than the name of course <.<

I simply find such a name to be a interesting after knowing about the series.

Then it really does belong in the "You're Addicted to Touhou When..." thread. Yuka is a common name. Same goes with several other names in the Touhou universe. Or Multiverse, considering that Gensokyo isn't the only dimension.

Because, you see, stating that your classmate can be related to Touhou merely by her name is like this:

"I have a friend named Alice! Oh, and when she was a kid, she used to play with dolls! She's Soooo totally related to Alice Margatroid!"

The fact that there are two items in the game that have either Reisen or Inaba written on it.

Plus one of the boss fights in persona 4.



It's not the same color or all that similar but it can see into the hearts of mankind. Soooo.

Ahh.  I tried tinkering with the URLs to get the videos to play right at the parts I wanted them to, but in case you didn't spot the similarities, here you go:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAy3nlATLkk (at 0:23) is similar to
