Popping in with a random update on progress, if only to keep the thread alive!
So I've been working heavily in playing through EoSD lately, and I finally managed to 1CC it on Normal as Marisa B! The homing as Reimu just didn't work out as well as in some of the other games, which meant I couldn't rely on it as much. I decided that power over homing was the way to go. For a long while, Sakuya simply proved to be a wall, but after I got past her, Remilia only took me two or three tries.
After that, I tried a blind run of the Extra Stage. I managed to make it up to the mid-boss without getting hit, but I think I lost a life to Patchy in there somewhere. But I went on and made it to Flandre, who will probably haunt my nightmares for the next few weeks as I try to beat her. I've only done this one try at it, but I managed to make my way all the way up to Maze of Love before getting a game over. Out of the ones that I saw, Maze of Love and Kagome, Kagome seemed to be the two worst for me. The lack of hitbox with all that quick dodging on the latter gave me trouble, although I'm getting better, and the former was just kinda a surprise death, as I had no idea what was coming. There was just this sudden, impenetrable wall of bullets, and by the time I saw where I had to go, it was far too late. But I'm happy to have just made it there! Being able to sight read an Extra Stage that well is a good sign, right? Or is that level just easier than I think it is?
And on another note, I've started up a Touhou folder on my external. No pony crossover images yet, but I've found some art that I really like. I'm predicting that it won't be long before that little folder grows ridiculously big. On the bright side, though, I've got pictures to post! This is by far my favorite one so far~
