Touhou litterature

Heya Touhou fans,

Touhou’s universe has grown larger and larger, as ZUN-sensei kept working on each game… So it’s no surprise that new touhou written works appeared. The following links are what I have found so far.

As for now, here’s what I’ve found :

  • Touhou Bougetsushou : Silent Sinner in Blue (東方儚月): An official webcomic written by ZUN and illustrated by Aki Eda. The story is thrilling, and of course the characters are very well depicted in this adventure. Reimu and some other Gensokyo inhabitants got involved in a big adventure centered on some events concerning the Moon. What is Yukari planning ? And how will this affair evolve ?

  • Life of Maid : A nice webcomic mainly centered on Sakuya’s little life at the Scarlet Mansion, and her everyday relations with occasional guests and events.
  • Touhou : Tag Dream : After reading some manga, Yukari gave everyone the idea of battling in… a catch tournament. Weird, but many characters are featured ! And everyone is correctly depicted.
I hope you’ll enjoy these as much as I do !

Another lost comic : Copper

Hiya!

So today, I’m going to tell you a bit about a webcomic I discovered some years ago. It’s quite different from all the other ones you might know, though, since it’s not updated much…

This is about a boy, Copper, and his dog, Fred, who experience various adventures in various brightly-coloured, gorgeous worlds. The atmosphere is really wonderful : colours are everywhere, it’s very well drawn and you quickly get absorbed by the whole universe. The characters are nice, and are original enough for you to get to like them. As for the story…

The story is what makes Copper different from any other comic. Here, there’s no monster to kill/bad guy to defeat/romantic love story to follow… Every comic strip is individual, so you can read any of these in any order, it doesn’t matter that much. However… Each one is some kind of little life lesson. There is always something to learn and remember, and the wonderful way it is presented makes it even easier. No complicated plot at all, but instead amazing places full of poetry and dreams…

The comic isn’t perfect, though. It really lacks updates, so once you’re done with all the released comics, you can get ready to wait for a while before having to check again. But considering the amount of work behind each strip and its gorgeous results, I think it is easily forgivable…

Finally, despite its scarce updates, Copper is definitely a nice webcomic to check, not only for philosophers, but also for experienced web drifters questing for a some quiet place to space out…

Enter the world of Copper, and get ready for some enjoyable webdreaming !

PS : the author has also made some other nice pieces of artwork… You should have a glance at his place.
