Touhou Bougetsushou Licensed

As some may or may not know, there have been a couple of people working behind the scenes to license some of the official works. Through some pushing and pulling, we have finally gotten some headway and may be making our first official release soon!

    This would have been awesome, except for the whole, you know, April 1st thing.

    I probably would have fallen for it if not for a few other sites which were so obviously pulling pranks it reminded me that it is April First.

    Wow, you actually had me fooled. It’s too early for this…

    Even though I knew today was Tewi Day, there was still that small spark of hope…

    Now this is the kind of April fools joke I don’t mind, very cute. Tewi can lie to me anytime.

    Haven’t commented here in ages so I can’t remember, but did the comments always have spam protection? Should make it so the answer is in base ⑨ 😉

    Nice one, Ruka.
    Maybe next year we can make a real one and surprise everyone who’ll think it’s a joke.

    Well, we did attempt something. It’s just not this. This requires contacting Ichijinsha and ZUN and having a major publishing company sponsor us. Or a different alternative.

    Where the heck are my letters!?

    Not bad, a very “fluent” prank. The title was so simple including the content I thought it was for real. Even if it’s 2nd April when I read this.

    Sure there’s funny guy around here eh?

    Eh, I was almost fooled, but I saw the date that this article was published on. That Tewi picture immediately gave the whole thing away, too (common senses, tingling!).

    ZUN probably wouldn’t want to publish his works in the west if speculation is true about him “not approving” of the western fanbase (although I don’t think this is necessarily true, since there’s really no evidence of such claims and some doujin game authors actually like the idea of expanding their games beyond their county’s borders).

    But, if hell happens to freeze over and some of his official (or even non-official) works gets legitimately published in the west, expect a shit storm of epic proportions coming out of the “elitists” of the western fan-bases, although I have no problem at all with Touhou becoming more mainstream (the games and comics are GOOD, dudes, don’t hog it all to yourselves. It’s selfish!).

    ….It’s now even April first anymore… and i was fooled… -_-

    I had to read Tewi’s dialogue, copy-paste, read Tewi’s dialogue, view source, read Tewi’s dialogue, then finally noticed the date before I am convinced.
