Usually, most people start plating Touhou from the sixth game (EOSD), but I started from the very first one (Highly Responsive to Prayers). it's pretty difficult tough
But anyway, I always start from easy difficulty, until I beat the game without continuing...
But I also love how ZUN make every Touhou game harder than the previous one.
For example, I can beat Rumia on Lunatic without any problem at all, but when fighting Aki Minoriko, she is hard as hell
even on hard...
Also my fav character is Sakuya
Well, she has knives, what else? Pa-*knifed*
Also, I wish Mima returns
Who doesn't know Mima, they are the transient people, unless you don't play the first five Touhou games
