Cage in Lunatic Runagate and Curiosities of Lotus Asia

Thanks once again to the amazing Solamarle, we have the second chapter of Cage in Lunatic Runagate ready for your review! Continuing the story of the events of Touhou Bougetsusho from the perspective of the Lunarians, this time we get to see Kaguya’s take on the events of Silent Sinner in Blue, and some explanation of exactly what the Jeweled Branch of Hourai from her impossible requests actually was (or is).

As well, Nietz has given us an update on the progress with the original set of Touhou short stories, Curiosities of Lotus Asia – detailing the day-to-day life of Rinnosuke and the girls at his shop on the edge of the Forest of Magic.

As of this point, chapters 1-4 have all been completely translated; chapter 5 is currently in progress.

And a hearty thanks to all the CoLA contributors: Nietz, teru, Mikanosuke, and Axel!

Comiket 73 Doujins

A little delayed, but finally the second part of our Comiket 73 research – upcoming doujin works!

Advent Cirno -StarDust- One Night Stand is releasing the next chapter of the Advent Cirno saga, Advent Cirno -StarDust-. While it’s apparent from the cover that Marisa will be the new addition to the cast (as Yuffie), most of the other details of the story are as yet unknown. Keep an eye out for scanlations (hopefully soon!) as it’s definitely high on our list as well.

Comiket 73 Music

It’s nearly time for Comiket again, with Winter Comiket due to run from December 29th through 31st. While most of us here in the West might not be able to make it ourselves, there are certainly a lot of releases for Touhou to look forward to – and possibly order – once the dust settles. We’ve been keeping an eye out for a few weeks, and have managed to line up what we think should be some pretty awesome releases.

First and foremost, ZUN himself has announced two CD releases: Akyu’s Untouched Score vol. 4 and 5.

Touhou NES ROM Hacks

For this update, we have a slightly unusual one, in the form of Rom Hacks, or patches for several NES Roms that convert them to something a little more related to Touhou.

Eientei Action

First up, we have the conversion of Elevator Action, an old arcade game involving action and elevators, unsurprisingly.
