Cirno is not an Idiot!

February 1, 2008

Who is Cirno?

Cirno is a Ice Fairy from the Touhou Project, a series of Doujinshi Shmup that started life on the mostly unknown PC-98, but moved onto the Windows platform. But why all of this “⑨” stuff all over this video and such? Well Cirno is a idiot simply put, and as such the maker of the games, ZUN, had some fun on the manual of Touhou 9. Pretty much he was labeling out the interface with like, 1, 2, 3 and such, but when it came to 9, it was on Cirno, and the writing reads: “idiot”, just that! And so Cirno became our lovely ⑨ Baka. Add in her childish nature, her “Eye’m the strongest” talk, and just pure stupidity, she ended up becoming one very popular character among Touhou fans, which almost got her into the Quarterfinals of Seimoe, but she lost to Cute Ghost Yuyuko.

It is also thanks to all of this popularity that Cirno had made for her one of the most well known Touhou Doujinshi, Advent Cirno, made by Doujinshi circle One Night Stand. As the name pretty much says, this is a Touhou x Final Fantasy 7 (Advent Children) Crossover, which is just all kinds of awesome!


Cirno by Snow and Wind

Anyway back to the song, Pretty much Cirno is trying to prove she isn’t a idiot, or Baka in this case, what we really get is a awesomely cute song.

Still if your wondering what the Touhou Project is, I’ll cover that in a later post when I get round to writing something on it, but in the mean time enjoy another song about Cirno.

Sadly I have no idea who made these Doujinshi remixes of Cirno Theme from Touhou 6.
