Touhou Anime Project DVD Announced

The popular Touhou shooter game is getting an anime!

Touhou
Touhou, the popular doujin (self/amateur-published) shooter game, has had a tentative “doujin anime” project in the works for some time now, and it looks like the project is finally moving forward—and with some big names attached to it.

2chan.us has word from the 2chan thread, in which Mai Nakahara (My-HiME’s Mai Tokiha, Clannad’s Nagisa) and Miyuki Sawashiro (Rozen Maiden’s Shinku, Galaxy Angel’s Mint) as the two protagonists, Reimu and Marisa.

There are plenty of other big names, too—here’s a full list (including Rie Tanaka!):

  • Reimu: Mai Nakahara
  • Marisa: Miyuki Sawashiro
  • Shameimaru: Ayumi Fujimura
  • Patchouli: Mikako Takahashi
  • Sakuya: Rie Tanaka
  • Remilia: Ayumi Tsuji
  • Suika: Aki Toyosaki
  • Narrator: Kikuko Inoue


That musta cost them a bundle—wonder if they got all that capital from selling the game, or if there are investors involved? A website has also been launched for the project, and the DVD is coming out on December 29. It seems likely that people will be camping out to make sure they’re able to get their copy—a doujin project like this is probably not getting the huge print run as a pro production.
