>>14691795 In Touhou every youkai takes a humanoid form. Tsukumogami are a sentient object. Every Tsukumogami is the object. The girl is an illusion taken to fit in. An avatar so to speak. It's why Kogasa's humanoid form has heterochromia; because Kogasa only actually has one eye; the blue eye is simply because pretty much everything else is blue. It's also why she's usually shown sticking out her tongue; because the umbrella is ALWAYS doing that.
I can't find anything about them actually being able to take human form in legends.
Kogasa is the umbrella. The 'human' is nothing more than an illusion. Even if it was a case of long-lived Tsukumogami gaining a human form; does Kogasa seem long-lived? No. She acts seems like a child to the point she's not even mastered her ability. Also Raiko/Benben/Yatsuhashi are virtually newborn Tsukumogami and have human forms.
>>14695795 So what would happen if she lost the umbrella? It's like Youmu's phantom half, I want to see what would happen if they were split up, and what would happen over long distance seperation. I wonder if she could survive on her own if enough people see her as her, rather than the object. Most importantly, if I were to cum inside her would the umbrella also have my semen oozing out of it? Or would I just get splinters trying to fuck her? Because at the end of the day I would be fucking an umbrella, even if I see it as a cute girl.
I wonder if this is how people who fuck cars, posts, tables, fences, ferris wheels, etc feel like. It's also going to be great when, given time all those semen stained dakis, and hot glued figures come to life. I want to see that Gensokyo.
>>14695822 She has an ability - it's the ability to surprise humans. She's just not very good at it.
And her umbrella design is based on another youkai called Ippon Datara - it's implied, but not directly stated, that this was intentional on Kogasa's part, since her umbrella was just eggplant-colored (that's all) when she was not a tsukomogami yet.
>>14696534 If she cant suprise humans, and her ability is to suprise humans, she has no ability.
I think she would be much better if she went back to her old look and hung around Yukari. Yukari likes her parasol, Yukari likes suprising humans, and Yukari is talkative. She could be adopted as a shikigami.
>>14696534 Kogasa needs to be herself. Her trouble comes from this mindset that she has no purpose in lifenow she isnt used as an umbrella anymore. The thing she seems she doesnt realize is no one has any purpose, they make their own purposes. I want her to be happy, so I hope she stops trying to be something she isnt. Especially given her religion means no murder, non murderous youkai arent scary.
>>14696754 Yeah, they need belief, but that's pretty similar to a story, isn't it? Humans believe that Youkai do particular things, and in turn Youkai gain the characteristics that humans say they have.
I don't think ZUN has conclusively stated this, but I like to believe that Youkai cause incidents to make sure humans tell stories about them and believe in them.
>>14697184 When I haven't fapped for several days I start seeing erotically-dressed women and my thoughts almost instantly go to how nice it would be to brutally take their innocence and use them as living onaholes
>>14695795 While I'm a fan of "X is the object, not the girl" theories, even wacky ones (Patchouli is the library, not the girl!), Kogasa isn't so simple an entity that she's just the umbrella.
SoPM mentions that the umbrella is inseparable and further clarifies that she is a tsukumogami that can't exist without it, perhaps different from other tsukumogami. As I've understood it, Kogasa is the 'form of a human holding an umbrella', a bit more than just the object and an illusionary girl.
But it really doesn't matter, and we're both autists.
>>14696666 Remember tht Kogasa ins't a human she is a youkai born from the idea that tools that are forgotten or dispose of while still being useful become resentful and came to life. She is a tool given life, and her basic instic are two, to look revenge on the humans that mistreated her (her youkai part) or to find someone that will actually use her as the way she was intented (her tool part)
>>14696799 Gods and youkais share a common ground in the belifief part, if a large part of human belive in them as youkai/gods exist, they will be able to come to life, but a god can get stonger if humans direct their belief to that particular god, meanwhile a youkai will only get famous with no change in their power.
Basically gods and youkais are able to exist as species level if humans belive in them, on a individual level only god get stronger if they get the belief of humans and can shape their power/influence in the world according to the desire of the humans that worshipped them, youkai are born from their fear and get nothing if humans knows about their existence, a youkai born from stories/fears usually becomes stronger the longer it lives or by eating more humans (not really sure on the last one)
