Found a series of videos (untranslated) on Youtube (originally from Nico) called Osana Reimu ("child Reimu").

It's, well.

Like the Cirno-nee meme, I wonder what it is about this sort of situation that makes them so interesting and adorable.

It's reversal of fortune sort of thing; Rumia is usually presented as a cheerful/dumb/violent/bloodthirsty child and Reimu's generally serious. It's usually a cool character that gets turned into a kid and a childish character that gains maturity; this is why Cirno-nee takes care of Sakuya and when the Scarlet Sisters get aged up, Remilia stays pretty much the same while Flandre looks and acts more mature.

Huh. Who's the lady in "Miko Miko" robes with a donation box on her head? An unnamed previous Hakurei priestess?

Pretty much; she's labelled as "Mum", so she's probably meant to be the previous Hakurei miko, and Little Reimu's mother.

(Whether the Hakurei succession actually works this way is unknown, but probably not that important to fandom.)

I've always been partial to the Hakurei miko.

As one Danbooru commentator put it: "You use bits of paper? I stopped the youkai with my goddamn FISTS!"



Don't tell me this isn't a badass pairing.

Too bad she's not canonical.

I started doodling these in my sketchbook the other day, and I think this idea has legs. Quicker to show than to describe:



I'm gonna see if I can work out some of the other Touhous this way. I mean, it writes itself. :D

I'm surprised that I can't find any other Rule ⑨ Muppet material out there, because they seem like a perfect crossover, to me. Humans coexisting with Weird Strange Creatures that like to eat things, or blow things up, or eat things and then blow up. And there's music, too.

Based on a link posted in the comments on Danbooru, I've been watching VeryNezumi's "Test" series of videos. They're... odd. The first three are amusing in the "what am I watching" sense, while the other two are more of "well, it's not like I wanted to be able to sleep tonight".

Also, the first three are set to non-Touhou music, while the next two are heavy-techno remixes of their respective games.

Test (Nico video link, since I can't find a Youtube version) - Marisa on a Segway. (Song: "Yumemiru shoujo ja irarenai" by Nanase Aikawa.)

Spoiler: Show


This isn't actually in the video, but it's by the same artist and it references the video.


Test in Touhou - Hats. No example pictures, but still instantly recognizable, possibly leading to the "pants_tied_over_head" tag on Danbooru. (Song: "Midnight Shuffle" by Masahiko Kondo.)

Colour Test in Touhou - Moko, Special Edition! (Song: "Red Angel" by Pocket Biscuits.)

Spoiler: Show




Sound Test in Touhou - Scarlet Devil Mansion being creepy. Rave-esque flashing-lights warning.

Spoiler: Show




Final Test in Touhou - Perfect Creepy Cherry Blossom. Note that Youmu's focus appearance happens at 4:44.
