Did you know Touhou?
Oh and welcome back!

It’s good to be back

Thanks to legendtriforce and for the encourgaing words

Ah, on your answer about Marisa's Master Spark - there is also Dark Spark from T14. I think it's worth mentioning)

I knew I shouldn’t have skipped Touhou 14 on the Wiki, thanks!

Did you know Touhou is back! And with it, something that I’ve been considering to do for a while to lend a hand to lack of activity and trivia that has unfortunately been plaguing this blog ever since 2014 started: starting to answer Touhou related questions, that aren’t specifically trivia worthy, but rather something that people may not know.

Please leave your feedback on this new type of thing! What do you think? Should it be a thing, or should I drop it now and stick exclusively to trivia?

I’m not sure if this was brought up here on Touhou Tumblr but it was announced at the Anime Expo Touhou Gathering that we will be having our first ever TouhouCon!! This is such an exciting step for Touhou fans but it will only work out as well as we can support the event! 
The location will be at UC Irvine in Irvine, California. The confirmed date of the con will be on September 20th. 
Again it’s our first one so it can only happen with everyone’s support! More information about TouhouCon will be posted as the event draws near on the TouhouCon Facebook page.
Hope to see you there!

if you haven’t caught it on the Facebook page yet then there’s been an update to the location and date! The con is being moved to the Anaheim Marriott in Anaheim, California and the event will now be spanning for two days! The time of the con will now be September 20th and the 21st. Registration for the event/artist alley/vendors are also open! Links are all on the Facebook page.
Also if you have any questions then please hop on the Touhoucon Facebook page and ask the staff there (i’m just filling you guys in on some info, i’m not part of the staff :u)

Seems we reblogged an old post with the incorrect information folks! Touhoucon will now be held in a different location and for the two days!

DYK Touhou: Bonus #11 ⑨
Cirno Day
Happy 0⑨/0⑨/2013 everyone! A bit one the late now, we missed the 9am mark, but the admin takes the blame on that.
A thousand thanks to Leomodesto, the guy behind the Ask Undonge askblog and Krazycatqueen, who runs the askyukarimotherfuckingyakumo askblog, for providing DYKT with their Cirno drawings for this special post!
Here is a clean version of the background, and an even cleaner version here.

Happy Cirno Day everyone! Enjoy your 0⑨/0⑨/2014!

The admin would like to apologize to everyone who follows the blog. A few days ago, I posted a trivia after an unannounced hiatus, saying that the blog would be back in business.

As of lately, I’ve been having some personal issues with tumblr, and I’ll be leaving this site temporarily. The user who helped me managing this blog has also been absent from tumblr for about a month now too. However, when I come to terms with the issues I’m having, the blog will be back in business and all submissions and requests will be attended to. Until then, I’d like to thank every single one of you who have been supporting the blog.

The ask-box will remain open, if you want to submit trivia or request something for when i come back. Until then, happy blogging to everyone.

hi, i'd like to know the source for #192

The only instance where Eiki has been put next to other characters has been in the 9th Chapter of the Silent Sinner in Blue, in which Remilia hosts a party to announce her plans to go to the moon, standing next to Komachi. Any other official portraits of Eiki has been of her alone.

Sup, Hideki! How do you check the source of trivia, submitted in your DYK Touhou blog? You can answer this ask privately, no need in trashing your blog with trivial asks.

hidekins:

Trashing my blog? Naaah, it makes me happy that people show interest in what I do. Usually a quick search does the job. My main way to check trivias is the Touhouwiki itself, sometimes it’s just laying there in plain sight and it gets often overlooked. Character profiles and omakes have a lot of stuff people don’t know. Print works have a lot of information too. And if I can’t find a source of the information, I contact the submitter of the info.

If you want to know where today’s trivia came from, it’s a note that ZUN wrote down in a rough sketch of Yukari’s post PCB design, right here
