    First thing he asks for isn't your gender, but your phone number.

    *Try to use any other pokémon than Rattata*

    Joey's voice echoed: There is a time and place for everything, but not now!

    Wait, so wouldn't he be Oldster Joey by this point?

  6. Porecomesis on November 18th, 2012 8:21 pm

    JOEY: Nice try, Porecomesis! Did you really think switching cell phone providers would help you escape me?!
    ME: Oh for God's sake…

  7. Restam111 on November 18th, 2012 8:26 pm

    Actually, there is no time for using a pokemon other than Rattata, accorfing to joey

    Nazrin is in the top percentage of all stage 1 Touhou Bosses!

    Why don't you ride your bike indoors instead?

  11. Marzen on November 18th, 2012 8:54 pm

    Joey, bro… is your face melting?

    Dude, we can help you man… we can help…

  12. Artakha on November 18th, 2012 9:23 pm

    If I were a professor, you'd only be able to use Dratini.

  13. Mindlessinvalid on November 18th, 2012 9:26 pm

    Seriously? Why do I always get -1'd when I post Touhou?

    Firstly, it's Nazrin, so it's relevant. She's a motherfucking RAT.

    Secondly it's Touhou, it's always relevant; even when it's not.

    I can guarantee you if I had posted ponies (which I refuse to do ever, I neither approve of nor dislike MLP or its fans) then I would have had all the +1s.

    It's starting to irritate me because Shawn and Trunks have posted every game under the sun AND ponies, but have not yet posted even a single Touhou reference yet.

    It's frustrating when every fanbase but the one you're part of gets validation. Seriously, we haven't even gotten a crossover reference to games everyone has probably heard of despite there being more of those than anyone cares to admit.

  14. Marzen on November 18th, 2012 9:34 pm

    Hey man, don't explode at me, I didn't -1 you. But to respond to all your points:

    I know very little about Touhou, and I bet others do too. They probably don't see how it's relevent, even if she's a rat.

    No, Touhou is not always relevant, and that's not a valid point. I'm sorry.

    Are you kidding? Half the time ponies are -1'd down too. And if it's just "HEY LOOK WE ALL LIKE PONIES, RIGHT?" posts, then they're definetely -1'd down. Sometimes they are even if they're relevant.

    I've seen Touhou references, but it's very uncommon. I doubt Shawn knows much about Touhou at all, really. But if there's been nothing it's been cause no one's sent anything in. Try sendign something in!

    *shrug* Sorry dude. Touhou's just one of those things that's always bugged people before. It's kinda like the old ponies, just the thing everyone fucking loved but some people hated cause others loved it? Especially since they thought the fans were only fans for sexual reasons. I don't hate Touhou, but I can't get into it myself.

    And I'm totally not trying to bash or trash talk you, just raising valid points to your valid points is all.

  15. Mindlessinvalid on November 18th, 2012 9:51 pm

    I'll admit, the Touhou Fanbase has more than it's share of perverts. But that's because there's a lot of fan content.

    There's so much fan content, that it drowns out the games and leads to retarded questions like "What anime is this?"

    We've got more music, more porn, more characters, more doujins (non-erotic ones), and more fangames than any other fanbase.

    It's such a pervasive work that it has basically transcended setting and became its own genre.

    Now I understand that people who don't know anything about Touhou might not get some of the references when they crop up, but thumbing down references one doesn't understand is just stupid. I don't +1 or -1 people very often unless I have a strong positive or negative opinion of the comment, but I see people who treat e-peen as some sort of sign of status and will attack ideas they don't like for no other reason than to reduce credibility of the comment.

    That in itself wouldn't bug me, but more people just skim posts and and only read things with high positive values than anyone would like to admit. So what happens to those comments I've made? Swept under the rug like dust.

    Part of liking something is wanting to share it, but trying to share my likes just typically results in poorly reception and -1 blizzards that do nothing but detract from any merit my post may or may not have had.

  16. Nick Soapdish on November 18th, 2012 9:58 pm

    All I heard was "boohoo my Toohoo!"

  17. Juggernaut470 on November 18th, 2012 10:14 pm

    Lucky you.
    I couldn't understand it at all.

  18. Nick Soapdish on November 18th, 2012 10:19 pm

    In Professor Joey's pokedex there is only an entry for Rattata and room for no other Pokemon.

  19. Nick Soapdish on November 18th, 2012 10:27 pm

    I'm still trying to understand whether it should have been -1 buzzards or -1 blizzards. I think the thought of a predatory bird pecking and clawing away at my epeen is more terrifying than an icy storm of down thumbs.

  20. MasterLuigi452 on November 18th, 2012 10:28 pm

    Seems legit.

  21. Juggernaut470 on November 18th, 2012 10:28 pm

    All I can say is. Share what you like, and don't let the number of -1's bother you. Just keep on going. It's what YOU like, like it. Just don't spam share it… Which, from what I have seen, you don't.

  22. Juggernaut470 on November 18th, 2012 10:35 pm

    I dunno… If the blizzard has shards of ice, that can hurt. Bleed your E-peen into the snow…

  23. Mindlessinvalid on November 18th, 2012 10:40 pm

    It's not really the -1s themselves that bothers me, it's the idea that sharing something I actually like gets such negative reception. I don't mind that people aren't interested in it, I can't make people like things that they're not predisposed to.

  24. Paulrus-Keaton? on November 18th, 2012 10:41 pm

    Yikes, man. Maybe there just isn't a big Touhou following here? And if what your saying is true, then why do I rarely hear about it? Actually, don't answer that; not my business to make judgements on things I know nothing about, but that's still a bold statement. Maybe a large following in Japan, perhaps, or maybe they're good at keeping underground.

    Also, it is possible that bronies and MLP get more focus on the net because "fandom of guys who like technicolor dream ponies" is more interesting than "fandom of guys who likes an western-obscure bullet hell shooter from Japan?" One of those things is more odd.

    Also, looking at your original post, it had nothing to do with the submission or to whatever discussion was going on. It's like you're forcing this game down our throat; trying to sell it to more people. Admirable, getting stuff like that out there and noticed, but there is a time and a place. Like if there was a Halolz forum open or something. If this was a submission about Touhou, or someone started a comment stream that made a clever link between Pokemon and Touhou, then this would've made more sense.

    If it makes you feel better, I went ahead and looked it up. Yes, it appears to be VERY popular for its own reasons and it has been around longer than all this pony stuff. I also found out that the Mc'Rolled meme was founded out of it, which surprised me. But I'm still not interested in it; anime bullet hell aren't my thing. Kudos to theb guy who made it, but that's just not my thing.

    Also, just because something has a million-strong fanbase doesn't mean every one has heard of it. But, well man, from what I see… outside of the international otaku circles, Touhou just isn't that interesting. You can through up statistics all you want, us butt-scratching, 3rd world country exploiting Westerners are just not into that kind of thing.

    But… I don't know; I'll accept that you hate ponies, fine and dandy. But can you just accept the fact that not everyone is into Touhou? Everyone has a fandom they like, and they all rule and suck in their own way; to each his own. I'm not gonna stop you from liking something you love.

    So… um…. yeah…. stop your whining.

  25. Juggernaut470 on November 18th, 2012 10:44 pm

    Don't let it bother you then. Trust me, if I passed my opinion on Halo 4, I'd get it even worse for me.

  26. Paulrus-Keaton? on November 18th, 2012 10:44 pm

    Yeah, birds pecking at my peehole is pretty gnarly and brutal… but a blizzard is all-consuming.

  28. Nick Soapdish on November 18th, 2012 10:49 pm

    I know what you mean. I went to a forum once and told them all about my love for 80's TV sitcom Alf. I made jokes, showed fan-art tried to have an open discussion about it and can you believe what the other members told me? "This is alcoholics anonymous, please leave the room at once." Can you believe the prejudice of some people?

  29. Juggernaut470 on November 18th, 2012 10:51 pm

    Food of the modern sideliners.

  30. Paulrus-Keaton? on November 18th, 2012 10:51 pm

    Get your avatar to drop a phat beat while your at it. Because Vinyl Scratch is a horse than does that and horses are known to do that.

  31. Caelun_Niveus on November 18th, 2012 10:55 pm

    To be fair, even I find that the video is unrelated to the submission. Brorats or not, ultimately you are just posting a video from an unrelated game for no reason…

    Now, if you tried something a little more connected…
    people wouldn't mind.

    Yes there is NazRattata in there)

  32. Paulrus-Keaton? on November 18th, 2012 10:58 pm

    Actually, my hindsight is telling me that I just opened a flood gate with my mouth. Did I open a floodgate with my mouth?

    Did you? Only one way to find out. Sit back and watch…

  34. Cloak on November 18th, 2012 11:00 pm

    Seems a bit tame for lunatic.

  35. Sonicsmash2 on November 18th, 2012 11:04 pm

    Oh man, don't get me started on AA. You wouldn't believe the amount of evil eye I got for drinking from a coke bottle in a bag at a reunion.

  45. Mentle on November 18th, 2012 11:31 pm

    Mindless, you need to stop. We've got two or three other users who absolutely love Touhou in this community, and about ten other people who either like, know a lot or at least enjoy one of the games, but what you constantly do is try to force it in the comments, and always Touhou, so don't get surprised by negative reactions.

    There are dozens of mouse characters and you could probably make a "top percentage" line for each of them, that doesn't mean you should.

    I know comments barely related to the submission get to the top sometimes, but you just shouldn't get shocked if yours didn't, as that should be the natural reaction to any comments of that kind.

  46. Vabolo on November 18th, 2012 11:33 pm

    A blizzard of busy buzzards being a hazard to your buzzword badge of being a bastard?

  47. Vabolo on November 18th, 2012 11:38 pm

    Something that isn't the norm in our selection of videogames?

    <img src="; width="356" img="">

    Seriously though, guys, I know it's unrelated, but couldja pipe down the rage a little bit? If Kirby Untooned got to the main page, we sure as hell can let someone post a comment featuring their irrelevent videogame interests in peace. Or in uneasy tolerance, whatever floots yer boot.

  48. Vabolo on November 18th, 2012 11:41 pm

    I heard that they originally planned to have 190 kinds Rattatas, but didn't have enough room in the game for all of them, so they just used one.

  49. Pupsrus13 on November 19th, 2012 12:02 am

    I'm sorry to say this, but I learned of Touhou through Team Fortress 2.

    Freak Fortess, specifically. Fujiwara no Mokou can be SO annoying sometimes…

  50. Solar Boy Django on November 19th, 2012 12:12 am

    I'll be honest with you for myself it's three fold :

    1. You post it to dang much for me and actually push me away from Touhou I was interested in it but I see it to much and it's kinda feeling like it's shoved down my throat (even more then ponies and I admit those get shoved pretty hard and I am a brony)

    2. As some people have said that particular one (can't verify the rest of them as I don't -1 everything mind you just this one) didn't have truly that much to do with this post kinda pulling a thinnnnnnnn line here. In my opinion then again maybe I'm wrong.

    3. This one has particularly nothing to do with you I've kinda have a bad experience with Touhou. I've been interested in it a while back and asked my friend where to find it and he wouldn't show me or anything so as where to find it due to the fact that "it ruined a previous friendship of his" this was after I googled touhou mind you trying to find it. Granted I didn't google that hard or well so that one may be more my fault so I kinda harbor a small grudge against Touhou.

    It's mainly more 1 and 2 mind you. 3 having nothing to do with you but a small, small margin of my decision. You asked so I figured I should give some kind of reasoning, as to why I personally down voted you this time.

  51. Paulrus-Keaton? on November 19th, 2012 12:19 am

    I'll take them.

  52. Paulrus-Keaton? on November 19th, 2012 12:48 am

    S'right. I was hesitant to put that in, but I think a slap in the head after a long, soothing, down to earth talk was in order. And from what the other comments are telling me, Mr. MindlessInvalid has a history of pile-driving this Touhou stuff into the dirt for inadequate reason, and that's why we're having issue here.

    Yeah… we really need a forum again, then we could at least have dedicated threads to fandom stuff like this: I know there were ones for MLP and anime.

  53. Soul Eater 676 on November 19th, 2012 12:50 am

    It's OK to post relevant stuff,.

    It's NOT OK to go on extremes about it.

    Touhou is one of them..

    (And the fandom that shall not be named.)

  55. Redzeroine on November 19th, 2012 1:17 am

    He'd probably encourage going into the tall grass so you'll be able to catch more rattata's. It's also good to know that this professor has a pokemon within the top percentile of all other pokemon of that specificity in his possession.

  56. Porecomesis on November 19th, 2012 2:03 am

    But how will I ever hear from Bill whether my box is full or not? I can't just check that at a computer!

  57. MetroidJunkie on November 19th, 2012 4:03 am

    The other Rattatas are sick of being ignored.

    Or that my pokemon have made an egg through completely unknown means? How! How!?

  60. Earl the Lemon on November 19th, 2012 7:26 am

    so solar boy django… WAS RIGHT

  61. Mindlessinvalid on November 19th, 2012 7:33 am

    I'm going to make this very clear:
    I neither like nor dislike ponies or the MLP fanbase in general.

    But I can agree with everything else you just said.

    I *was* actually trying to throw the relevancy in there, but I couldn't find Nazratatta.

    For some strange reason I thought gameplay vids were the next best thing…

  62. Mindlessinvalid on November 19th, 2012 7:35 am

    Excuse the previous, mostly irrelevant submission. This is what I was initially trying to post but couldn't locate.

  64. Alpar on November 19th, 2012 7:45 am

    Yes yes I'm sure he's an oldster. Just like when you battle his Raticate, it's still a Rattata according to his phone calls.

  65. Alpar on November 19th, 2012 7:51 am

    The worst part is I don't know if I should be assuming you're making that reaction because of what he added at the end or because he mentioned McRolled.

  66. Alpar on November 19th, 2012 7:53 am

    Methinks your Japanese may be off if I remember correctly. Fujiwara is her last name. Unless it's some other stupid particle usage I'm not understanding/remembering here.

  67. Fmarulz on November 19th, 2012 7:53 am

    I can´t see the image : P but seriously I know the felling of wanting everyone to know something you really like, I myself am a fan of touhou but even if you like something so much, you need to know what to post and when to post it, I am now into homestuck but that doesn´t mean that I can make every post have something homestuck related, we should all keep a diversity of tastes and post all kind of things so as to make the discussion enjoyable for everyone, we may have a troll or two but in the halolz community we are united for the lols and we want to talk about the submissions making good references to them and try to make witty comments about everything, but that doesn´t mean that we should get stuck with only one theme in our minds because not everyone enjoys the same thing as us, be it touhou, homestuck, ponys, Dr who, the forums, or whatever shall be we need to keep everything funny because WE ARE HALOLZ AND WE HAVE AN AWESOME COMMUNITY xD

    and shawn repair the forums so we can have more silly and extremely funny threads and posts xD

  68. Alpar on November 19th, 2012 7:59 am


  69. Alpar on November 19th, 2012 8:09 am

    Him fixing the forums would be all the silly and extremely funny threads and posts we need, AMIRITE?

    (I'm sorry Shawn please don't stick a knife through my trachea.)

  70. sims796 on November 19th, 2012 8:11 am

    I'm not gonna jump down his throat like some sort of throat-jumping throat jumper. I'll just -1 his comment. Nothing personal, I just didn't find it funny, or relevant, or whatever.

    It's nothing to get upset about, I get -1'd from time to time, just means my comment wasn't as funny on site as it was in my head, try again later.

  71. Fmarulz on November 19th, 2012 8:25 am

    Oh are you asuming that shawn isn´t repairing the forums so to make the halolz site visited more frequently??
    nah he wouldn´t……………. would he?

  76. Vabolo on November 19th, 2012 10:56 am

    Yeah, but the -1s aren't traditionally reserved for things we just don't find funny/amusing/relevant/catgifs on this site, we use them to bash people into oblivion for being dickwads/improper/StalinCommander/CaptainObvious/etc.. It's a form of social control, and it starts losing its impact once we use it too losely, or worse, we start having stale, easy-laffs(tm) instead of creative comments because people live in fear of seeing their precious virtual score that no one actually cares about diminish.

  77. Rexxmech on November 19th, 2012 11:22 am

    Actually you need to catch the other 99 Rattata, one in each percentile. Sorry about that.

  78. Leo E. on November 19th, 2012 11:46 am

    We know that Shawn has shit taste in games, it's just something we have to live with.

    I sent him a Touhou video to post once, and it elicited a response something along the lines of "Awesome! But how is this gaming-related?"

  79. Leo E. on November 19th, 2012 11:47 am

  91. BaroqueWolf on November 19th, 2012 4:02 pm

    You seem to be trying too hard. And don't assume that Touhou has more of everything than anything else because, quite frankly, it doesn't. In fact, I really don't see very many Touhou references around the internet and I'd be seeing more if what you claim is true. I actually see far more from many other fandoms and I've met many people from practically every fandom but I've never met a Touhou fan. All I'm saying is that it is a small fandom and to think otherwise is a little foolish.

    Your post got downvoted because there is no way someone who isn't a diehard fan of Touhou could get it. In fact, it really just isn't related and seems to be just a randomly posted video.

    I don't care what fandom you happen to be a part of, just please don't be elitist about it. Don't assume that everyone is going to like what you like and complain when you get downvoted because people don't get whatever reference you're going for here.

    Oh my.

    I leave Halolz for a day to play the Wii U, and I come back to this.

    I'd add fuel to the flame by bringing up tales of Sonic playing card games on motor cycles with Rainbow Dash whilst they fly over and attack Shawn with their Touhou powers in request for forums, but we practically get all that over the course of a month anyway. Bonus points if Zoe finds a hentai image of it.

    I keep mine in reserve. It's much more satisfying watching everyone else do it for you.

    Weirdly, all the fighting types in this game don't exist…

    Just because you don't like something isn't a valid reason to show any sign of negativity.

  103. Cloak on November 19th, 2012 7:05 pm

    It's Fujiwara no Mokou, but Mokou is easier/faster to type.
    Also, if it's read from right to left, it's Mokou no Fujiwara, and if I'm right about "no" being roughly equivalent to "of", she's Mokou of Fujiwara, making Fujiwara her family name.

  104. Alpar on November 19th, 2012 7:07 pm

    Oh that's okay. I just need to endure the pain, walk home, and use some of the spare ones I sto- I MEAN got so kindly from strangers.

  106. Alpar on November 19th, 2012 7:10 pm

    All I have to say to that is, Wonderful 101, and Bayonetta 2.

    If you don't purchase one or the other for your Wii U, you have failed your people.

  107. Cloak on November 19th, 2012 7:11 pm

  112. Paulrus-Keaton? on November 19th, 2012 7:41 pm

    I see. Well, guess it was just a very very very very very obscure reference.

    Just be careful next time, brah.

    Cloak is absolutely correct.

    Use of "no" in a name is reserved for important members of prominent families in archaic japanese the same way Von was reserved for german aristocracy. Von being the preposition "from", it is used in normal speech as such, but in a name it's an honorific that uses the family name as a badge of honor.

    I'm done with this thread, I've already admitted that the video was kind of forced. I know I went overboard with the Touhou references.

    I do intend to prove you wrong about the size of the fandom, just because you went there.

    Let me first say that I'm not trying to convert anyone, nor do I support the view that popular = good (there are plenty of really popular games that are actually shit).

    Go to the Categories sidebar on right side of the page halfway down. Touhou is listed as its own Category and commands a little under half the total content on this site.

    There are 124 canon characters in the Series right now. Individual characters with complete development and backstory (except for a few PC-98 era midbosses).

    1,138 Individual fan albums with an average of 8-14 songs each.

    I'm not linking any ero-doujins, I dislike that part of the fandom.

    Not to mention that almost every third danbooru submission is Touhou related.

  124. Mindlessinvalid on November 19th, 2012 8:54 pm

    Oh my….

  125. Mindlessinvalid on November 19th, 2012 8:58 pm

    So… she's a rat youkai…. part of a dangerous Youkai crew… that belongs to an eternally youthful yet annoying character… who's a rival in the same profession as the main character… and commands her 4 servants to fight on her behalf…

    Nazrin herself is easily disposed of,

    Making her (eternally)Youngster Hijiri's Rat Attacka? Who is in the top percentage of all rat attackas?

  126. Mindlessinvalid on November 19th, 2012 9:00 pm

    That meme is so overdone, but I'm glad you used it. It kinda makes me not regret the whole mess that this overzealous Touhou pushing I've been doing started.

  127. SpectralSheep on November 19th, 2012 9:11 pm

    Because three modern forms of writing it, one of which is incredibly painful to master, us bombing them silly back on WWII, xenophobics, formalities, and numerous dialects say: "WE CAME THIS FAR. WHY THE HELL NOT?"

    I'm gonna start a bar called "The Lowest Comment," because I notice that people around here like to hang out and chat in those.

  143. Comire on November 19th, 2012 11:31 pm

    That sounds like a catchy (dare I say) hip name for a hangout actually. I wonder if there's a real life equivalent to replies upon replies sprouting new threads of differing levels. I'm enjoying working my way through the chat but finding it a little hard to follow.

  144. Comire on November 19th, 2012 11:35 pm

    That's right the points are like making a comment or image urging Shawn to fix the forums! …Just doesn't matter.

  145. Comire on November 19th, 2012 11:59 pm

    I remember first finding out about HSOWA and being desperate to make a joke on it, but having to wait for (what felt like) weeks for a relevant moment. It was pretty unknown back then and I was desperate to be the first to break it on Halolz. Not quite the same as bringing people to a cult following, but after waiting for the right moment, other people started making their own jokes too soon after so there's something to be said for that, right?

    Hell, even posting at an irrelevant time, after around 100 comments, I bet Touhou has been googled a fair few times.

  151. Mindlessinvalid on November 20th, 2012 7:45 am

    Mission accomplished.

    Although if they actually tried to *play* one of the games, they *might* get hooked.

    Grammar Hammer!

    Unless you're suggesting he should proceed to something or someplace called "Young" for a diploma, you're going to want to use the comparative adjective "too".

    Man, it's been forever. Where's Zyquux? He used to be all over this hammering of grammar.

    Orin is still in the top percentage of rats. And I never want to see her again.

  159. Mindlessinvalid on November 20th, 2012 6:20 pm

    I don't actually think Byakuren is annoying. It was kinda from my perspective of the religious trichotomy (because there's 3 of them) in gensokyo.

    Shinto or no go.

    Also, Orin isn't a rat, she's a….
    oh I see what you did there…

    Byakuren and the Moriya girls are BFFs now. And Reimu gets along with Byakuren much better than she does with Miko.

  163. Vabolo on November 20th, 2012 11:48 pm


    I dunno, I brandished the thing for a long while as well, but people started to learn a lot more when I actually provided comprehensive insight on their fallacious grammar. That, and it got less upvotes, lolimathumbswhore.
