Whoops! Looks like the previous one is finally on autosage. Here's to another five years, I guess.
Let's not actually take five years, though it's most probable at this point.
Might as well take this opportunity to repeat my recommendation for From the Scarlet Moon Flows the Spring and add that Clever, Audacious, and Wise -- and most of Teruyo's stuff from the past couple of years, really -- is worth a read.
>>16108 I think a lot of that comes down to how people voted. Readers seem more interested in dealing with the mystery of being a stone than the actual work at the SDM and possible reasons why a werewolf would bother. There's still a fair amount of story ahead, however. So who knows what may yet happen. While I don't agree with some of your conclusions, I think there's still room to explore.
The acronyms are for the English parts of the titles. PCB is a very standard game, LoLK is difficult but has a default crutch mode, and WBaWC is the current latest and quite fun. Once you have your sea legs, I'd recommend playing in order, including the side games, starting from EoSD. Don't worry about beating any of them, if you get frustrated moving on is fine. Recommendation: use your bombs.
>>16152 Not really the thread for this, but since we're here I'd recommend DDC for its straightforward arcade-iness. It's all relatively easy -- save the stage five gimmicks. I'd also put forward HSiFS in a similar light, but with the caveat that it's a bit mean in terms of having bullets that can be hard to see at times. Same deal with WBaWC.
If you need more info on the games or, well, most other things, I'd recommend consulting Touhouwiki: https://en.touhouwiki.net
I'd like to recommend A (Lion-)Dog Among Gods >>/youkai/31590 It might not be the fastest story but it's a really cute protagonist and interesting portrayals of characters. I hope to see more of it soon.
Basically an detective figuring out a mystery/murder or anything close to that
As long as the story has some unknown culprit that needs to be found out it's fine by me.
Those pi self monologues are optional ( "Bradbury was right... there's bad and there's bad. But what I walked into when I left that night made all the magic and witchcraft I'd seen up 'til then look like a sideshow. My name's Lovecraft... and I'm the guy who knows. Just about the only guy who knows it all... who's still breathing. It started that night and it started with a woman. It always starts with a woman." for example).
Also sorry I didn't know what sage does and won't make that mistake again.
>>16289 There's two stories tagged as "noir" in the story list, maybe start looking at those? I wrote one of them and I think it more or less fits the bill. The tagging is pretty incomplete in general so there's probably more stories.
I was looking for a story just yesterday but forgot the name of it! please help.
The premise was as follows irc: Some mad conspiracy theorist ends up in Gensokyo and somehow spreads his bs logic to our fellow 2hus while almost definitly leaving destruction behind every location he goes to. it was the weirdest thing I've ever read.
The theory was something there are actually 4 Hours going on at once instead of 1. Educator Stupid!
Think it was on the forest or underground board.
If it rings a bell to anyone, I'll gladly hear it.
Hey, jabroni, if you've got time to look at this thread, read The Beast and the Crime (>>/th/201720). It's got all of the food groups: gangsters, religion, sex, and faerie sidekicks. Plus, it just fuckin' updated! And it's almost over! Don't you wanna participate in a current story that has a chance of finishing? Of fuckin' course, you do. Now, get reading if you haven't already.
there's this story i remember about a mage or something being told to go to gensokyo and steal Ran's hair to pay his debt (?), i remember the thing about the mc is that he has shit magic power but is really good at magic control so he thief stuff with his magic. anyone knows which story i am talking about?
