Touhou Anime (MAD)

f7af0d35d4346690fc74338685443ab5

This very convincing and beautifully made (especially considering it is the work of an individual/circle) Touhou OP style anime has recently appeared, and looks to be a MAD to whet the appetites of fans for an eventual anime.

Player 1

Nico.

It seems inconceivable that a series of such popularity will not eventually get an naime adaptation, eventually.

Zun’s statements that a Touhou anime is unlikely due to the difficulty of a such a project being doujin in nature, or due to copyright concerns, keep being raised with regard to this.

I am instead rather convinced that he is biding his time; eventually a studio will offer him millions of dollars if the popularity of the series continues to increase (a doujin anime would likely be non-starter – where would the seiyuu, etc, come from?), and at that point the copyright concerns can be done away with easily enough.

    oops, it's ISH' :lolz:
    Touhou isn't suited for an official anime, a doujin ones like this is what breathe more life to Touhou..
    well, at least in my opinion^^

    And the second original trailer, and in my opinion, the best Touhou anime project trailer so far:

    I'm scared a Touhou anime would mess up everything trying to please all fans at once. Like having an orgy of characters instead of centering it on 2-3 characters.

    Though, at the same time... I'd like to see them all in motion! Hehe!

    Anyway, can't wait to see this out!

    Yep.. the thought of a Touhou anime is as exciting as it's scary.
    I personally am not in a hurry... they have to think things through so they can make something that lives up to the name, if that's even possible.

    The greatness of touhou is it doujin capabilities. An anime would limit the possibilities and only cause more trouble than worth
