A little backstory: Touhou was the Japanese bullet hell (danmaku) game creation of Zun as his one-man developer team called Team Shanghai Alice in 1996. Also called Project Shrine Maiden, the series took off in fame when the six game called: Embodiment of Scarlet Devil came out for Windows in August 2002. Since then the series has massive amount of fans who love the series and the creative freedom given by Zun. In fact the fan service is so large and diverse that in 2010 the series holds the world record of "Most Prolific Fan-Made Shooter series". You will find a massive collection of fan-work that will stun you! In fact the fans even named two mid-boss characters in the six game!
Today there are 13 main games and a number of mini-games in the decimal numbers. So many different spin-offs of other popular games like Touhouvania (Castlevania spin-off) and so much more. Don't like the games that much? Well then enjoy the music that ZUN created on his own with the official stage themes and character themes and their hundreds of remixes! With Touhou and music you will certainly find a remix that fits in your favorite music genre. Artwork is also an amazing part of the series too! While ZUN has his form, many artist have created thousands of their own work of the series that any art lover will certainly take a liking to. Have fun!
