Yeah, it's funny because they don't know jack shit about it. Some even believe it's a character created 100% by ZUN. God fucking damn it.
Touhou has a really good lore and universe though, too bad most of the westernpigs fans doesn't seem to see beyond "muh waifu" and memes.
Have I said how great Japanese movies from the 50s/60s are? Let's not forget the 80's, but let's leave that for another time.
風林火山 [Fuurinkazan]>English title
"Samurai Banners", but that shit is horrible, though I can understand why they chose it. Fuurinkazan translates as "Fast as the wind, silent as the woods, daring as a fire, and inmovable as a mountain", or something along those lines. You can't make a short title out of it.>Director
Anyway, the movie is an epic drama set in the Sengoku period, and it narrates the life of the Yamamoto Kensuke-Bushou throughout his aid in the campaigns of Takeda Shingen no Daimyo. Includes a lot of fun, and it's actually a movie that manages to illustrate the living in during the Sengoku era. Lots of history, if you're a piece of shit weeb like me you will love this crap. You don't know how japan was during the 1500's? Checked, you will learn. You don't know who the fuck were the Suwa? Check, you will know. You don't know anything about the most some of the most iconic figures of Japanese history? Checked, you will know.
Not to mention that it's also one of the greatest classicals ever. Honestly, I consider it a must-see. Actually, most of Inagaki-sensei's movies are really good, try to check them out.
怪談 [Kaidan]>English Title
Kwaidan (Ghost Stories)>Director
Kobayashi Masaki-sensei again.
Kwaidan is an anthology compilated by Koizumi Yakumo (AKA Lafcadio Hearn) of classical japanese horror stories. But those more old-fashioned, à la Edo period (Nopperabou, Yuki Onna, etc).
This movie is basically bringing those stories into another format. Nonetheless, it's actually pretty great. If you enjoy these kind of stories then you will enjoy it.
