About this Visual Novel

Hello, this is Graph, the author of the webcomic Touhou Mecha. I’m now in charge of the Visual Novel continuation of Touhou Mecha.

Touhou Mecha is a free-to-download fangame of Touhou Project by Team Shanghai Alice and ZUN. Touhou Mecha is an alternate universe of the Touhou Project world. It has a pseudo-contemporary look and the cast fights using mecha. The story is loosely based on Subterranean Animism(yes, that’s my excuse for making a story that stars Utsuho Reiuji!).

It’s a very visual-intensive story; lots going on in the action sequences. The style of animation is inspired by Muvluv Alternative, and I have a number of influences from Super Robot Taisen as well.

The story for this one is going to be released in Chapter installments, and hopefully after Chapter 1 of the Touhou Mecha VN you’ll be able to add new Chapters by downloading patches for the game. I’m planning for this one to be a linear story, no branching choices like ESR(That’s a Kinetic Novel for those of you who know Visual Novel lingo).

As in the past, I’m handling the art and most of the writing for Touhou Mecha’s conversion into Visual Novel form. That way, the writers for Eastern Starlight Romance can focus on that, which is good since they’ve got a lot of writing ahead for what we’ve planned. They’ll help to look the thing over at various stages in development though (We’ve already discovered that my attempts at narration can be pretty strange).

About the webcomic

For archival purposes, here is a download of the webcomic that predated this Visual Novel.
Chapters 1 through 3 of the webcomic

Touhou Mecha the Visual Novel is basically a continuation from the third and probably last Chapter of the webcomic. However, if you haven’t read the webcomic yet you can start with the visual novel because…

1. A synopsis of the three-Chapter webcomic is included at the beginning of the Touhou Mecha VN.
2. Most of the mecha designs are going to be retconned, which is largely because the more mecha-related media I take in, the more appreciation I have for the Real-robot aesthetic. There’s other minor design changes, but I’ll just mention the one that affects the story; in Chapter 3, page 2 of the webcomic, Satori says that she placed the seal in the Remains of Blazing Hell. I’m changing it so that a previous generation of the Hakurei clan actually placed the seal, but Satori was appointed to watch over the place. (Hence why Satori doesn’t know what’s really inside)
