Under the alias ‘ZUN,’ Junya Ota created Touhou Raiden in 1995 after teaching himself how to program and to compose game music. He later released his second game, The Story of Eastern Wonderland, the first ‘true’ Touhou game, a slower bullet hell shoot-’em-up game. From here, Zun began kept on experimenting and produced all our favorite Touhou games that we know today, and has no intention of stopping.
Due to overwhelming success, there is a desire for Touhou merchandise. Most of the following goods can only ever be found at Japanese anime and dojinshi conventions, but with ZenPlus you get them shipped to anywhere in the world, and the best thing about it? You’re purchasing directly from the doujinshi! As there’s so much out there, we have cut down the list to 8 must-haves.

Touhou Project Books
Build your own Touhou library of the Scarlet Devil Mansion in real-life! Like Hieda no Akyuu said there are lots of rare magic books out there, but make sure you shield them from sunlight to stop them getting damaged over time.
These books are created entirely by doujinshi and were first distributed at the most significant Japanese comic convention (Comic Market) held in summer and winter at Tokyo’s Big Sight. The creators frequently publish in small numbers to maintain a low profile to protect themselves against any litigation they face. This makes these books even more special than they already are, only a few lucky fans will be able to get them before they sell out.
