>>14730184 >various iconic characters Among a very niché community that only get normie recognition because of how often it get ripped off by others franchise (Kancolle, Monhun, Neptunia...) If weebstuff is a rabbit hole, Touhou is at the bottom of it, in the darkest, dampest places.
>>14730193 >If weebstuff is a rabbit hole, Touhou is at the bottom of it, in the darkest, dampest places. Hardly. 2hu isnt that obscure. Especially with all the content made for it, eventually someone wil lwonder what all this fanart is from and then find Touhou. You could argue it's secondary content making it known, but it's still something that came from Zun's work.
>>14730211 >all the secondary stuff doesn't go into ZUN's pocket How so? I figured all the fumo's, figures, etc all gave him royalties or something? How wouldnt he get money from things sold using the characters he made? I can understand doujins, but some stuff is on a different level and he should be getting paid for that. Now I feel kinda bad for him.
>>14730220 >I figured all the fumo's, figures, etc all gave him royalties You absolutely sure 'bout that, matey? Japan ain't working like the States do, fo' sure, I don't know if there ain't no royalties in ZUN's pocket, but I ain't buying it 'cause it's Japan.
>>14730479 It's not too bad actually, I like it and it's my homeland, but Westerners really have a lot of money to spend on stupid things and they think it's completely normal, including spending money on random homeless refugees. If 2hu wasn't pirated I dont know if I'd ever become a player.
>>14730534 Same here, but not because of money, more like I'd rather buy games I can get at the local video game shop. As for the rest, well, that's because Europeans are secretly arrogant and believe they're fated to help other people. I personally always found that extremely obnoxious and a know-it-all jerk behaviour, but you can't change people that easily. Anyway, this is a bit off-topic, let's get back to ZUN's drinking problem.
>>14730554 Hell, if it was available locally I might have bought it, actually I just looked at shipping costs and it's not as scary expensive as I'd thought. If I start playing any of the games seriously for score I'll try importing it.
>As for the rest, well, that's because Europeans are secretly arrogant and believe they're fated to help other people. I personally always found that extremely obnoxious and a know-it-all jerk behaviour, but you can't change people that easily. I'm European too you know! ^^ We just come in different shapes and sizes. But yeah, I agree.
Oh right, beer. I've never played a game drunk. Maybe Lunatic is only impossible as ZUN says when you're drunk.
>>14730211 >so even if he's famous and has a lot of influence, that doesn't necessarily means he's rich.
How do you think people find out about the games? 100,000 people see IOSYS or something, and then perhaps 10,000 pick up the games. Zun can then make money selling the games to them. How many copies does he sell of each game?
>>14730534 Man, I'd kill for original copies of the pc98 games. Fucking relics those are.
>>14739084 The only thing he has ever enforced in terms of copyright/trademark was the rights to the name "Touhou Project" some random person was going to buy for his own profit. I don't recall the exact details however.
Other than that, anyone can do anything. Like say, selling touhou merchandise and keeping all the profit.
Sometimes I fantasise about sharing a queue in an airport or something like that with ZUN and then quietly singing or whistling on one of his pieces of music and then wondering what his reaction would be...
