One Yukkuri Place

favorite/least favorite yukkuri

Posted under General

My favorite is Chen, because Chen gets it!

My least favorite is Letty, because they're often depicted as being grotesquely swollen and thus aren't cute at all.

I like alices and bodied flans.

I hate "great" marisas, deibus, and karma houdinis in general.

Of course I love to abuse 99.8% of yukkuris either way. Especially remilias, patchoulis, chens, and rans.

If they're nice (or funny like Makako, Warekara or Pageratta's), whichever is fine
Okay, maybe except the cockroach, kill them with fire! Blow the SDM! Blow the Hakurei Shrine donation box!

Now, if we remove the shitheads out of the equation...
Common type: Aquatic Marisa & Remi
Old rare types: Yuuka & Kotatsu Marisa & Cirno
New rare types: Guntank & Seiga (gotta love that psycho milf)

Kaguya is best yukkuri, though I'm also fond of pretty much anything rarer than a Myon.

I can't stand Marisas, not because I think they're more terrible than any other yukkuri but because it's my dislike for the Touhou character spilling over. Well, that and I can't stand the trend of portraying Deibu-Marisa couples instead of Reimu-Bawiza couples or even Deibu-Bawiza couples.

I blame fanon for this, pretty much.

I favor Kotarisa and have a general dislike of well none in terms of breed. I suppose if I had to pick one I'm not a real fan of Remilias.

Shinki is my favorite, as you guys have probably guessed.

As far as disliking, I don't really have any I dislike based only on breed, but I do find myself loathing Deibu's more than shitheads of other breeds; I blame Gesuaki's Deibus for that.

Actually the its because they are main characters and main characters are more used, and i dunno why they are portrayed as evil most of the time, since all yukkuris are shithead in default.

One of the belief seems that canon Touhou characters are all selfish bastard. They just do whatever they want by their own principle. Although seeing reaction of readers, maybe not as evil as Shimadoriru's depiction.
So despite being canon's character is deeper and as intended by ZUN, I prefer the wacky and stupid stereotypes in fanon instead :P

But I don't really understand why the hate for Marisa. She's a selfish thief, but less annoying than Reimu.

BTW, anybody read Jiroo's comic about Marisa (the human) ? The scan is translated in Danbooru.

In other words, fanon.

Kirisame Marisa! You have to get out of here! Your vagina is haunted!

Jiroo's works are all screwed up in one way or another.

Actually I mean the totally depresed and suicidal Marisa story.
That and added to his self-insert comic, it really gave the impression that his mental state not far different (unlike Warugaki and Hitoshi and their awesome life report ^^;

To be precise, I don't consider either Reimu or Marisa to be a better person than the other. I do dislike parts of the fandom's tendencies to downplay Reimu because of her faults while playing up Marisa at the same time despite her faults.

With a totally "open to interpretation" cop-out ending.

The artist may have issues, but I don't think it's what you think it is.

Funny how Reimu's always at the top of character popularity polls, while Marisa is only second fiddle at best, and low-to-mid-tier at worst.
