You have a real hard-on for military, don't you.

What the hell is it about male OCs in Touhou? I find it a bit like putting a knight errant in Naruto, or a shrine maiden in Harry Potter. Or like putting a sore thumb in... something...

Have you died or is college really so bad that you haven't updated for over a year now? So... please update soon. I'm very interested in your story and it would be extremely depressing if it were to die.

I find this an interesting story, the notion of a weapon tsukumogami (I think that's how it's spelt) is an intriguing notion, I found the part where Reimu forced Abe to be a donation box fairly humorous as well. Iim looking forward to updates.

I enjoyed this fic, really. To see a tank youkai growing as a character, and an independent one (I mean, he's not a self-insert neither is the love interest of someone) is really a new idea and I enjoyed this fic, I think it can be considered as G. I. Joe meets Touhou (the Red Legion sounds like COBRA). This fic also has humor (the comment of Abe stealing Sanae's virginty made me laugh).
Caligula is a mad person, he's much more mad than evil and that makes him more dangerous and the government trying to profit from Gensokyo was a rather interesting thing, because it also showed how Yukari is really intelligent (and, besides, that ought to be nothing new to her).
I guess everyone already pointed out in other reviews, but I have to say that I think that bit of men can't using danmaku is incorrect, I even reread Akyuu's monograph in the wikia and she implied that men can use it, it's just that they don't like it (according to what I read, danmaku is considered too 'girly'), or else this fic stays a little farfetched in itself, with the outsiders males using danmaku. Aside from that, I enjoyed this fic and I hope to see more, keep going!

This reminds of that 3D dot game heroes ad based on an old spice ad.
"Anything is possible when your hero is made in 3D using the 3D dot game heroes character creation tool."
"I'm a tank!" *whistles*

I see myself as a bit of a military nutter, but I think I find myself siding with the Gensokyo crew this time - Caligula is, at least to me, is a class-A asshole. Nice to see some of his mooks managed to see through his fagginess and switch sides ("Defeat means Friendship"? I see what you did there, fellow Troper).
There were a few minor tiddlebits like spelling and stuff (also the fact that triggers are squeezed, not pulled), but that's all trivial. However, I did think the SDM crew would be a bit more... shaken with the loss of Patchouli and Koakuma (well, maybe except Remilia).
Quick question though - with Caligula's army of scrubs, what happens when they run out of ammo/fuel/other supplies? Or are they above such primitive requirements already?
All in all, an entertaining read. We want more.

Oh Aya... Never change.

A bit of a rough start, but this story is very, very funny. I have to disagree on one thing though, the T-90 is better looking than the M1A2, and both are utterly dominated by the Merkava Mk IV (when it comes to looks).
That said, I'm loving this. A point of improvement: might want to cut down here and there on the exposition of knowledge, most people are here to be entertained, not to become army regulars. Touhou's can and will tank a lot worse than regular old bullets by the way, but for story purposes this is way more awesome. Might want to not have everyone lugging around guns though, or at least explain the difference between weapons (sword allows for faster movement? Odufada allow better homing abilities? Just throwing out random ideas).
Hope this review was useful,

You know, this is one of the most interesting touhou fanfics I've ever read. You combined gensokyo, with AMERICAN AFFAIRS! That's just plain awesome!
I liked the scene with yukari and the president, and I think you came up with a legit sounding/funny reasons for diss appearances in the bermuda triangle. THE LOST ARE DISSAPEARING INTO GENSOKYO!
Now the crits:
I did think the president getting assassinated so easily in his own office so easily was a little farfetched.
And I don't think there is a need for so many footnotes. The numbering at the end of a reference interrupts the story. I think it's ok for things like explanations of weapons, but I think everyone couldve figured out the McDonald's reference without the footnote. References should've suttle, not right in your face.
Anyway, great work, keep it up!

Get the MANPADS re...*knife* Oh that make my day! Great job on this chapter!
| DiLost chapter 6 . 2/10/2012
Well, this story idea is definitely interesting. Though it's a little weird seeing Gensokyou seriously in trouble from outsiders.
In my opinion good story.

DonnyDonster, how long do you take to update one chapter? It's not like I'm impatient or what but I wish to know so yeah. Thanks for that.

I just had the odd urge to see Flandre try to rape Abe. Mostly because I can easily imagine how he would freak out and run for his life...and his virginity.
