Had already seen them. One of the few authors that actualy explores Reimu's natural flying power. The Alice ones end up geting a little disturbing/depressing after you readed too much of them tough.

Actually as Marisa A.

Conserve Master Sparks. The Speed penalty they apply makes it nearly impossible to get UFOs in a timely maner (makes it easy to tear up big ones though), so save it for when you are about to die.

I used up 3 bombs prior to Murasa (once on Kogasa's final spellcard, twice on Ichirin with one being a Deathbomb). Murasa's stage is perfect for gathering UFOs in large numbers, so use that to stock up on power ups and spellcards (and lives, but don't go out of your way to get those since it will get you killed really easily and because Nue gives you one).

Once you get to Stage 5, be prepared to bomb like crazy. Don't start dodging Naz's and Shou's lasers, wait for them to point directly at you for the first couple of spellcards (they shift directions if you keep moving around, but once they go straight at you they stop moving).

For Shou's last card, stay near the spawning point. Her lasers don't veer towards you the way the first few spellcards do, but they are fairly easy to predict and slow-moving. This was actually the hardest card to beat for me, but I got through it with a few bombs.


Makai is literally hell for UF gathering. You need to stay mobile and focus more on your hitbox than on the UFOs or enemies. Don't bother collecting UFOs until there's a lull in enemies (they stay for a while) and for the love of God don't try to collect specific colors (use the UFOs' natural bomb to clear the screen, it's more important).


Byakuren is simple if you've got a decent bomb stock (4+) and near max lives when you start it. Bomb through her spellcard if you see the bullets getting too narrow, and use your deaths to restock them. Pay close attention to your hitbox, because you really won't need to focus on hitting her too much (Master Spark eats her health fast).


She got me down to two lives and one bomb, but it wasn't too hard to beat her using that strategy (it was actually harder to get to her without dying than it was to beat her).

Reading through the Eternal Blade PrC has made me realize that Youmu has a variant of the Blade Guide class feature and any feature derived from it.


A mix between that and the Gemini Dancer would be pretty close to her.

To don't derail the other thread.

The cast of IN and SSiB kinda disagree with that statement. They needed days on a magic rocket to reach the moon, and it only makes people crazy, not dead.
And then four people got to the moon with Suika's method in the same story. :p "its appearance is death to humans" could just mean it's dangerous to humans (being potentially deadly, or causing people to be killed by lunatics).

People? What people? An eldritch abomination, her fox familiar, a ghost and an half-ghost were the ones doing it.

Considering that Yukari's power is manipulating boundaries, and that the moon beings had put some kind of Forbiddance blocking her from just gating directly to the moon, it's perfectly reasonable Yukari went around it by manipulating the boundary between reality/hallucination around Suika's drunken ramblings.

Also the death tally of people who were directly exposed to the moon (between Touhou characters and astronauts, which the moon beings consider invaders) is... Zero. What kind of deadliness is that? Marisa's love potions have scored more casualities than that! :P

Failed Apollo missions don't count since Eirin points out it was their people purposedly sabotaging the humans to prevent any more human invasions.

Well, for all the actual humans exposed to the Moon they were:
-Barrier Miko. Doubt the lunar insanity can get past her barriers. She spent IN making horrible puns for the last stage.
-Insane Magician. The lunacy hit her mushroom addled brain. Can't be driven insane since she was mad to start with.
-Time-Stopping Maid. This one here is put down to 'discipline', but theres the "Lunarian Human" WMG on Sakuya.
-Half-Ghost Half Baked. Driven half-mad. Yuyuko implies discipline is all you need to deal with it. She handles it better the second time round.

So...basically all the humans who WERE exposed so far, weren't exactly normal to start with.

The transit meanwhile, seems to have more to do with how malleable reality is in Gensokyo than anything.
Yukari just alters the border between the perceived moon and the true moon.
Suika uses the same method to 'break' the moon, though shes acting on the image rather than the reality, for anyone not living on the moon, its about the same thing.
Reimu uses the god of travel, she doesn't actually CROSS the distance the hard way, merely turned it into a voyage analogy and thus, the travel god can make the analogy possible.

Theres probably a couple of other ways to make the passage. Reality is 'soft' in Gensokyo.
The mind transcends the body.
It's also a little cold because of that.
