Touhou Hyouibana ~ Antinomy of Common Flowers

Developers: Team Shanghai Alice
Publisher: Team Shanghai Alice
Platform: Windows
Released in JP: December 29, 2017


GraphicsIcon.png This game has unused graphics.
Carts.png This game has revisional differences.


Antinomy of Common Flowers is the 15.5th game in the long-running Touhou Project series. It deals with the Perfect Possession incident (i.e. the tag team mechanic), caused by a god of wasting money and a god of poverty exploiting the Urban Legend Incident of Touhou Shinpiroku ~ Urban Legend in Limbo. It also features the Dream World leaking into the real world as a side effect.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Unused Jo'on Yorigami sprites.
  • Unused replay icons.
  • Unused English text graphics.
  • Differences between updates.

Reisen Udongein Inaba

Reisen Udongein Inaba has two rough sprite animations, made using 3D models which were then drawn over for the final sprites.

Unfinished Final
The rough draft looks more like Reisen 2 if you ask me. Whoops.


Reisen's grabbing and missing animation.

Unfinished Final
Doremy not included. Where is she?


Her unique intro animation when paired with Doremy Sweet.

Jo'on Yorigami

Jo'on Yorigami, the final boss, has more unused sprites than possibly any other Touhou character in any other game!

It should be noted, that the reason that Jo'on's coat appears bright green and her flame aura shades of red in her sprites is due to the fact that her scrolling jacket and flame patterns are actually separate textures overlaid over those specific parts of the sprite; Ichirin, Miko, and Sumireko have similar situations for their sprites.

An animation of Jo'on's flames being pale yellow and more jagged than normal. She herself does not animate.

Jo'on suddenly being surprised. Two duplicate frames are present.

Jo'on had a large number of unfinished sprites from version 1.01 to 1.02b. They were removed in version 1.03.
