That's because anytime you play a game an "incident" happens. Meaning Reimu must move her lazy ass and go solve it. Scarlet mist, winter lasting way too long, broken moon, endless partying, flowers everywhere, so on and on and on.
Besides what they say to each other is just shittalk. Sakuya was supposed to be murdered by Reimu when you reach Remilia for example, next game she's running around shanking fairies trying to find spring.
It works like this, Youkai need human fear to survive, there's a few humans in Gensokyo, best way to gain fear is obviously to eat a few. But, there's Reimu, Keine, Marisa, village is protected, even Yukari does not aprove of killing too many humans. Kill 'em all, no fear for anyone, Gensokyo dies. So, in order to get some, youkai stage incidents with spellcard rules, made up by Reimu.
Example. Seija & Shinmyomaru create their little revolution, every human goes "oh no", every youkai goes "I'mma eat you", Reimu/others bust in and wipe the floor with the baddies. Spellcard rules meaning nobody gets hurt, humans remember "right, youkai are powerful, better stay out of their way", maybe go throw Reimu a few coins for the trouble, offending youkai spit out a few teeth and go have tea with Reimu, everyone happy until the next one.

So the entire thing is just one big play/scam to keep the whole show running? Okay, I can kinda dig that. Here I thought some characters like Wakisagihime were just straight up executed since they get no post-fight dialogue.

Not a scam, more like a "if you kill humans I'll exterminate you for good" deal. Reimu can do that. Gensokyo was created as a place for youkai to live in, see
>Kill 'em all, no fear for anyone, Gensokyo dies.
It's like youkai are wild animals, you gotta wrangle them. Not all of course.

Yes, although I wasted my trance during the stage so I couldn't use it on the fight. Regarding Ran the only hard spells imo are the last two before her final spellcard, you also get a lot of bomb drops or extra lives on the fight.

Pretty much. The difficulty doesn't come from relentless danmaku, but from the fact that you get so little resources throughout the game without a lot of planning, so you have to be extra careful with what you do.

>> No.17303032

>you get so little resources throughout the game without a lot of planning
There are one or two designated Trance spots on each stage. Spotting them doesn't take a lot of planning.
Even then, I can only speak for Normal. For higher difficulties it may be difficult to squeeze out every last resource, possibly involving close-range combat to gain more spirits for more Trance.

You get more Trance out of harder difficulties, so there's more actually.

I don't think Miko has some, or atleast I don't know any, but it's a pretty easy boss, the thing that makes TD more challenging is that you have to risk your ass going to the top of the screen to get the purple spirits, if you felt it was an underwhelming clear you should try Youmu and Sanae.

Its not a scam, its the only way it can be. The Yokai can't kill Reimu because the barrier will collapse, so instead they fight with spellcards to make things even.

Youkai dont die in Gensokyo if they are cute. Also no one really kills anyone, its all just banter. No youkai actually eats human, its all provided by Yukari to carnivores like Remilia, which might as well be chicken.

MoF is the easiest game in the series. Just bomb spam whenever you are in a pinch and stand just below fairies just after bombing to get your bomb back. I got a hard 1cc in MoF before completing normal 1cc in other games.

>> No.17312278

Is anyone else working on their first lunatic 1cc? I remember the last time I asked this an anon was working on pcb. I wonder if he ever got it. I've been working on EoSD on and off since mid December. I burned out at least twice trying to get it. The last break was because I got tinnitus. I didn't think I'd play again but that was 3months ago and things have gotten a lot better.

I've started playing again a few weeks ago and I feel like I can maybe do it. I mean I can do it on paper. I have plenty of resources. Before my last break I made it to scarlet gensokyo at least once and now after the break I feel I'm playing better than I ever was. So I should be able to do it. The question is when.

Also I've started playing the picture games with the goal of improving my skill to make my 1cc easier. I think I read somewhere that they're good games for getting better. Which I can see why. They're extremely hard.

I remember playing StB for the first time a long time ago and my first impression was this is weird and it sucks and I never played it again. Now that I'm better at touhou in general I'm having a blast playing them. I still suck but not as much as I used to. So far I got 22scenes in StB and 18 in DS cleared.

I'm working on 1cc'ing this too. I've gone through multiple periods of feeling it was possible and no it wasn't. I'm currently feeling it's possible again. Let's both try our best.

The Phoenix card is ridiculously easy. At the beginning, go on the extreme left or right and not completely at the bottom of the screen. Wait for the phoenix to be shot, sidestep.

All I can say about those, is to just focus on dodging horizontally, and if you're making any vertical movements, make sure you don't let it push you backwards/forwards. For Release of the Id, her first one, you want to be high on the screen, while Super-Ego you want to be lower on the screen.

What I do to manage Trance, is shift my pointer finger from the bomb key to the Trance key (standard keyboard layout; move it from X to C) whenever my Trance gauge is full. So any reactions I have to bomb are instead spent on Trancing.
Because almost any instance where you would want to bomb, Trancing is just better, and freely refills itself as you continue playing. The only exception is the Extra Stage where you might want to save a Trance to get through a tough spellcard, since bombs don't damage Extra bosses.

Well, I finally beat Alice in PCB Hard without continuing and got to see Stages 4 and 5, and goddamn PCB is a lot crazier than EoSD on Hard, it's not how I was expecting these attempts to go given how they play on Normal.
Youmu is hard enough on Normal, and she might still be doable on Hard with a good character, but with Reimu's damage output it's almost unbearable. I guess it'll help me git gud quicker at least.

Do well on the early stages and youre allowed to make a shit ton of mistakes. It's easier than a lunatic 1cc as well thanks to the timer being way shorter than normal, and eikis timer going down to like 20secs. The main thing about pofv ex is to score the first few levels for lives (keeping your combo up for like 20-30 secs isnt too hard, and you can spam level 2's pretty easy on them) then just play normally.

Eiki is really hard, but you should be living longer than that with that many losses. She gets easier as you lose to her (caps at like 3rd loss I believe?) and surviving two minutes is not too terrible. Her difficulty comes from all her things starting to stack together (same as all other bosses, but a little more extreme for Eiki) so the first bit should not be bad at all. As with all the 2hu games, practice more and it will start to come easier.
I guess people that can reliably 1cc it are just lucky all the time then, silly me.

Goddamn I hate Reimu's DPS, I will never get used to it and attacks last so long because of it. This is a replay of my best attempt at PCB Stage 4 Hard so far. It's the only time I have ever captured Lyrica's first nonspell and the Prismriver's final spellcard but I still got fucking BODIED with Lyrica's solo spellcard. If anyone's willing to look at it and give me advice that isn't "shoot Lunasa during the first spellcard so you fight her instead of Lyrica" because I'm stubborn and want to beat Lyrica since I beat Merlin and Lunasa on my runs with the other two characters on Normal I would greatly appreciate it.

Personally, I was thinking of getting into the series for years before I just picked up MoF one day because I was intrigued by Hina's design.

They are susceptible because they have to believe that there is a real danger. If they believe it's dangerous and keep the fear, they don't have to actively enforce that fear by actually killing whoever goes out. It surely happens sometimes, but only just enough.
