A new Touhou game was finally announced, named “Ten Desires”.  The confirmed playable characters are Reimu, Marisa, Sanae, and for my biggest surprise, Youmu! It’s good to see her back.

It seems that some spirits called “Divine Spirits” are up to no good in Gensokyou, Reimu and company decides to investigate.

A demo version will be out on the next Reitaisai (13th of March, befitting for the 13th Tohou game).

Today, ZUN’s blog was updated, and it seems like he finally said OK to a Touhou animated series! Whether it is great or awful news, I still can’t decide. Anyways, I’m hoping this will not butcher the current Touhou fandom and fan franchise. The problem is, I still don’t know how well the games’ stories can be converted to anime format, so we will have to see it for ourselves. (see http://kourindou.exblog.jp/14643159/ for his blog entry)

Not much is know as of this point, but they will use some of the seiyuus from Maikaze’s previous anime project, and the Scarlet Devil Mansion will make appearance according to it. They said Reimu’s, Marisa’s and Remilia’s VAs are gonna be the same, namely:

  • Reimu Hakurei – Nakahara Mai
  • Marisa Kirisame – Sawashiro Miyuki
  • Remilia Scarlet – Tsuji Ayumi
  • So I thought the story would be probably about Embodiment of Scarlet Devil if they already have the seiyuu for Remilia, but then I’ve read Mima is making an appearance! Well it was also stated that the anime project will run for at least 4 seasons, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they told us the stories of various games.

    Also we can expect some remixes of the original themes, and I eagerly await them. ZUN mentioned Love Coloured Master Spark and Casket of the Stars have been rearranged by himself.

    As for its air-date, we only know that it will be coming out somewhere next year. I can hardly wait…

    PS: Happy April Fool’s day!
