Touhou Project is a Guinness World Record-holding shoot-em-up series created entirely by a single man - a skinny alcoholic, no less. The series's top-notch visuals and music combine with a good amount of Japanese mythology and history to generate the most rabid fanbase on this side or any other side of anything. Just this weekend, a convention exploding with all sorts of fan works is being held in Japan dedicated entirely to this franchise, and you shouldn't be surprised if their attendance dwarfs AnimeBoston's! The setting is the sealed-off mystical land of Gensokyo, rife with all sorts of humans, yokai, and other supernatural creatures that have no problems hurling fireworks displays at one another one minute and sharing tea the next. And the fan creations, oh, the fan creations! Comics, arrange CDs, fan games that run the gamut from Mario clones to RPGs, and even a couple full-length episodes of anime with professional voice actresses! Whether you're brand new to the series or think you've already seen it all, we're bound to have a lot of fun together!
