Touhou is an enjoyable STG. It's a tad different from most. The stages of Touhou are rather boring and generally suck. However it makes up for that with awesome music and boss fights.
lol its Just ZUN following his usual position of all 5th stage bosses becomming playable in a newer game.
Sakuya in PCB, Youmu in IN, Reisen is a slight exception, but then shes playable in IaMP, PoFV, and SWR, and now Sanae the Miko Copycat will join them. (i think Zun is running out of ideas :s )
Eh I don't really call that a pattern. IN required quite a bit of characters because it was teams. Youmu came as a package deal. PoFV is a majorly different play style and also required a lot of characters. In a sense, Komach was that "stage 5 boss", and saw no role in MoF. Then there was no Sanae in SA. I think it's too broken a system to really call it his usual position. :v

i never really stated that the 5th stage boss would be playable in the next game i just said a newer game,
With Komachi being the sort of exception of her being the final bosses loyal servant (whatever you wanna call it) every 5th stage boss has been playable eventually and sometimes multiple times.


A few exceptions also with IN as you said there are teams, but the main person for each team is what i go by, reimu, Marisa, Sakuya, and Youmu the latter two being stage 5 bosses.

Reisen being the 5th stage boss has been in 3 games. and now Sanae will be playable.

obviously there are a couple of exceptions with the weird games like PoFV and IaMP/SWR, but for the most part all 5th stage bosses have been playable.

UFO Demo was released. The Demo should make its way online sometime soon.
A miracle that you believe in when you know it won't happen......... is hope.

Oho, do I see a new character? =3 I have always been a sucker for characters with different coloured eyes (with the exception of Vivio) so this one surely strikes my fancy.

And since this is my first post here, I might as well mention that I recently got into touhou series like ~2-3 weeks ago so I am a complete beginner. Made it to Remilia in EoSD in easy normal though I believe that her initial spell card is SICK. At least I have beaten SWR in easy with most characters.

UFO is an odd game.

I made an ok run with ReimuB I guess.

UFO is generally easier than SA, with Lunatic being an exception but eh. Nazrin is super cute, but I prefer Kogasa, who have an adorable personality.
An umbrella that was left unused and became a ghost.
She was originally an umbrella that someone forgot, but since other umbrellas like her were being sold at a discount, nobody ever picked her up, and she was carried off by the wind and became a youkai.

She never really hurts anyone, she just likes watching people be surprised.
However, not many people have been surprised by her, so she's watching classic ghost stories to improve her technique.
Ichirin is the unloved one of the demo, but she's alright.

I got tired of the 3rd boss's crap so I made Sanae nuke her. So far I've only tried ReimuA and SanaeA.

SA is definitely more difficult. Although I don't know about easy. :v

Stage 1 and 2 are really easy. 3 is pretty hard though.

Could just be a lack of concentration.

Made a couple of runs at Hard with ReimuB. Doesn't seem too bad either for the first two stages. Probably could have reached stage 3 if I wasn't being dumb and item collecting. :v

I started and completed some Cirno doujins yesterday. I finally know what her fans mean by "Cirno is strongest" now.

I started with the PCB demo. I remember playing it a few dozen times until i could finally, barely, beat it on Lunatic. Back then I thought it was awesome.
Then i saw my friend have the full game and i was all "Oh shit, you mean there's more levels?!" and pretty much have been into it since.

It's pretty awesome at how the games are so good and yet done by a single person. No wonder it's so well received, huh?
