New Touhou game will come soon!!
You can see a lot of fans’ derivative works of “Touhou Project (東方プロジェクト）” on niconico or Youtube.
The latest game is now accepting for reservation in Japan.
What is “Touhou (東方)”?
You can see just “Touhou” or “東方” on video sharing websites, but ”Touhou Project” is the proper name. It is mainly composed of the shooter video games, books and CDs by Shanghai Alice Gengakudan.
To be honest, I am the bandwagon fan, so, please refer the following link if you need more information.
