■1.東方靈異伝バックストーリー 

   ここは東の国のとある小さな神社、‘博麗神社’、ここには色々な出来事が起
  こるため、普通の人はめったに近寄ったりしなかった。

   しかし、‘人間でない何か’が、人里におりてこないのにはわけがあった。

   それは、この神社には代々、神に通ずる力のある女性、つまり巫女がいたから
  であった。

   なぜ、この小さな神社に力の在る巫女がいるわけは、ここには地獄や魔界、と
  いった‘人間でない何か’の棲む世界との接点(ゲート)が重なっているからで
  ある。

   それから時がたち、あれほどの力をもった封印の効力も薄れてきた。

   この神社の巫女は、‘人間でない何か’を人里におりていかない様にするため
  かなうはずもない敵に対し、精一杯の修業を積み、それでも無理と分かっていな

■1. Touhou Rei'iden Back Story

Here in an eastern country is a small shrine, the Hakurei Shrine. 
Due to the fact that many unusual events took place here, normal people seldom came near it.

However, there was a reason that no non-human things ever 
came down into populated areas...

And that was because for many generations, this shrine has held a 
woman with the power to communicate with God, a "shrine maiden" in other words.

As for why such a small shrine has such a powerful shrine maiden? 
Because here there is a Gate which connects to Hell 
and the spirit realm where the "non-human things" live.

Long ago, to seal away the phantoms and demons that appeared, 
shamans and exorcists from all over the country were gathered together. 
The sealing was a success... but, the recoil was so tremendous it annihilated everyone present.

Time passed, and even a seal of that much power has come to fade in effectiveness.

The shrine maiden here, in order to stop the non-human things from reaching 
the cities, has trained intensely to fight enemies she can't possibly beat; 
even knowing it was futile she headed for the Gate, ready to sacrifice herself.
.
.
.

Yeah, right.


Truth is, she's the "always gets caught up in weird things" shrine maiden Reimu Hakurei. 
Something non-human destroyed her shrine, and she's mad as hell. The only thing that will 
cool her off is the total annihilation of all non-human beings!!


...is half wrong, anyway.

The *true* truth is, Reimu Hakurei is quite an easygoing person. 
Even this time around, she only entered the Gate on a whim.

And she only realized that the sole effective weapon against the devils 
here is the Hakurei Shrine's greatest treasure, the Yin-Yang Orb, after 
she had been here for a while.

Reimu: "Eh, whatever. If I use this Yin-Yang orb well enough, it'll all work out, right?"

Who knows what'll become of her...
