Judging by all the music releases from the last few Comikets, the Touhou shmup franchise is still going on strong. That said, it’s been awhile since I’ve found a video release related to the doujin franchise to be as absorbing as the shadow art extravaganza of the popular Bad Apple video that Patrick mentioned awhile back. Thankfully, last September put a stop to that dry spell with manpukujinjya’s video titled Touhou Genso Mangekyo ~The Memories of Phantasm~.

Set to Iceon’s arrangement of “The Gensōkyō the Gods Loved” from Touhou Fūjinroku ~ Mountain of Faith, manpukujinjya’s video is gloriously animated and it’s almost a shame that his work won’t see life beyond being just a music video because he does an excellent job all around. The music is solid too, featuring an artist who calls herself senya singing a short, but sweet ballad that carries with it a tinge of regret. Together, the two components of the video sync up well and it does make you ponder the possibilities if manpukujinjya were to pursue things further.

For those of you more interested in the music used in the video, you could always check out the doujin music circle Yuuhei Satellite. The song, titled “Though the Scent Lingers, the Flower Scattered” can be found in its entirety as the first track on their very first album.
