Day 1,886, 03:16 Published in Japan Japan by Kasodani Kyouko

GOOOOD MOOORNIIINNGG!! This is Kyouko, yamabito from Gensokyo. Um, this newspaper's main purpose is to let readers to know more about Touhou, so I will try to throw less specialized vocabulary items around.... Oh, sorry for the rambling, let's get back on topic.

Preferred BGM(non-vocal): Golden City Factory - Eternal Dream ~ 幽玄の槭樹
(Original: Eternal Dream ~ 幽玄の槭樹, staff roll from th08/IN)
Preferred BGM(vocal): QLOCK - 夏陽炎
(Original: 紅楼 ~ Eastern Dream..., staff roll from th06/ESoD) and yes, the uploader mistaken the title of the original track
(Original: 幽霊楽団~Phantom Ensemble, stage 4 boss theme from th07/PCB)

What is Touhou?

The term "Touhou" generally refers to the games and other multimedia material from Touhou Project, and all the fan-made games, musical arranges, songs, and so on. Touhou Project (東方プロジェクト) is a series of games (and occasionally music discs and books) made by a doujin game developer, Team Shanghai Alice (上海アリス幻樂団). Team Shanghai Alice, the great culprit for everything, consists of one man, ZUN. (太田順也, Ōta Junya, usually just ZUN)

The games from Touhou Project is 80% bullet-hell games. Personally, I think that they are nice games, but the games on their own don't deserve this much attention. What the gem is about Touhou Project is the music and characters and much more, *10000 words was deleted here*. In one interview, ZUN says that he created the games because he wanted something that his music can go with. The characters are underdeveloped, but the music gives lives to them, and the fans picked the basic settings up and make up a lot of speculations to them. Apart from the music and imagination space, the series is also famous for it's meaningful bullet patterns. The bosses have moves that make references to their origin, be it the iron rings a goddess used in an ancient war or the sound waves that the echo monster (Yep, that's me!) reflects. I could go on for weeks and burst by hard disk with plain text, but I guess I should carry on before that happens.

Who are you?

I am Kasodani Kyouko!

I am a youkai that controls reflection of sounds. If you ever shouted towards a mountain and heard a sound bouncing back, it's me! If you ever believe that reflection of sound waves nonsense, then you are deeply affected by scientific superstition! I do all the work, you deny my existence... not cool. *sadface*

For more self introduction, I will make another article to focus on this particular Touhou character.

So who are you exactly?

I am not much of a role-player. But don't get me wrong, I do not regret taking up this name and kinda have to role-play as a result - having a Touhou character's name actually means any Touhouist can spot me and know about my faith for Touhouism just by looking at my name, and etc. So, eRep Kyouko is just an average resident in eJapan. I didn't know a thing about "staying in D1" when I was in D1, so I am now quite miserable damage-wise in comparison to most D2 fighters. All eRep gameplay related information can be found easily on my profile, so I am not going to list boring information such as my eBirthday. I am a cute girl! (because I am Kyouko!) Also, I am a party member of Moriya Jinja, and since who-know-when I was given the spokesman title. I am now a shikigami of Hizaya, which means he is my goshujin-sama, and I will respect and follow his every order. (Hizaya I <3 you)

For RL Kyouko, I am a Hong Kong student, and is here mostly for the English exposure. ("English exposure" is also my excuse to play when I am supposed to study. Don't worry, I know what I am doing) That's about all I would like to share. I am a guy, in case you are wondering. It's better for you to pretend you don't know this though, so address me a "she" if you remember to

About the format of the newspaper

The format of this newspaper is going to be like an encyclopedia. It's hopefully going to include interesting information about inhabitants of Gensokyo, places, famous fan memes, lyric translation and explanation, trolling, and everything I find fit. There is a Table of Content thing going on, and the link will be included after every article. I had the idea of having links all over the place like a proper wiki thing, but I guess it would be too much work unless I can find a way to automate the process, which is quite unlikely.

Oh, I forgot to mention. Should you have any questions regarding my articles, or just random Touhou related questions, like "Why there are no buses at Gensokyo?" (by Sir Robin Ibz) just ask and I will reply surely! Interaction is the core of this newspaper! (I hope)

I always like this kind of newspapers which i think it's good to promote a lot of interaction between the readers and the writers.

Keep it up ^^

Satori, Aragaki, M4Tank, thank you for the support. I don't know what kj5982006 said, and I have little interest to what he said, given your reactions, but I am grateful to you all who share common belief to me.
