How is the Touhou community in your area, or country?
« on: September 09, 2023, 07:44:50 AM »
I'm fairly interested in learning more about Touhou communities in other locations across the world.
So, do you guys enjoy a lively Touhou community where you live, or are you guys somewhat lonely in the search for more Touhou fans around you?

Have you met an Eritrean Touhou fan?

Well, you see him now. :cirnotan:

Greetings to you from Vietnam! :>
I'm honestly just glad that there are still people using forums nowadays, since I don't want to see such a memorable aspect of the old Internet slowly getting forgotten.

In the US, sizeable community but everyone is scattered around so it's hard to find people that are near you. Touhoufest last year was really fun since I actually got to verify that other Touhou fans exist with my own eyes :P

I'm really jealous of China and Japan having lots of Touhou-only events all across the country on a regular basis.

At LEAST there are U.S.A Touhou fans. In my country, I don't think so, to the point it feels like I'm the only Eritrean Touhou fan due to not having any type in internet in my country and probably having no interest about a game of girls beating the crap out of each other.

I'm fairly envious of our close neighbor Malaysia, they even had a Touhou booth in a recent event which sells local Touhou doujinshis and such

As an East Coaster, if they ever do TouhouFest (or something like it) in NYC I'd definitely go

I don't think there's any plans for now which is a shame. Would love to see it alternate between east/west coast and/or midwest. I know it's hard since most of the staff is located near LA (having people at the site is crucial to running a good con).

Maybe they could find people they trust in the respective regions to form their own committees for Touhoufest Central/West/South or whatever. But that's a long ways off.

I'm also curious what Touhou communities look like and how Touhou players gather together in countries apart from China and Japan. There is many Touhou-only events in China, but I haven't even experienced one yet since I'm not a deep Touhou fan. Actually I just watch Touhou videos and read mangas on websites like bilibili( a chinese video site like yt or niconico ), pixiv, and sometimes surf other Touhou-related websites like thwiki. Is there any way to gather together or get connected with other touhou fans in your country?

The only in-person Touhou-only event in the USA is Touhoufest. I think there are meetups at other large conventions, but not sure how many actually happen. I don't think there was one at Sakuracon in Seattle this year.
