Over at www.onemillionpower.com they have translated a Famitsu article on ZUN, the creator of the Touhou Project!
It is a really kick ass interview. There are a few Famitsu people and ZUN (real name: Jun’ya Ōta (太田 順也)) drinking beers and it has become a super long interview! Kudos to BClarkOMP from onemillionpower.com to do the translation!
These are the many topics that are extensively talked about:
What Are the Origins of the Bullet Hell Shooter?
The Allure of Bullet Hell Shooters
Do You Re-Spawn Right Where You Died, Or Back At The Beginning Of The Stage?
Shooters Were Supported By The Influence Of Salarymen!?
Shooters and “Rapid-Fire” Culture
Boss Characteristics Liven Games Up
Bombs and Extra Lives Are Resources For Score
The Next “Conversation Hell” Is Already In The Works…!?
