Hifuu Club Activity Record ~ The Sealed Esoteric History. is a Touhou fan project by our circle, Kyoto Fantasy Troupe.

It is a large project centered around animation, supplemented by comics, written fiction, illustrations and other paraphernalia.

The production of the project will be a long and involved process, and we will do our best to bring you the story we want to tell. (Of course, this has to be done in several steps.)

The story begun when the two members of Sealing Club obtained an artifact originating from Gensokyo. They realized there is a hidden history behind this artifact, and started their research into those secrets.

What will they encounter? What will they discover?

Their investigations will bring them near the forgotten history of the Touhou universe, to stories of the past hidden beneath today’s peaceful Gensokyo.

A complete view of the world of Touhou Project will be shown before our eyes.

This is our goal, and what we have been striving for – to turn the Gensokyo we love into pictures, and to share it with other people who have felt the same love.

We are now nearing the completion of “Prologue”. Without any unexpected incidents, it will become available at Chinese conventions this November.

It is only a short piece, but we have put in all our efforts in the past few months.

People might ask, why are we making this prologue first rather than a full episode.

To tell the truth, we would also love to dive directly into making a full episode! But creating an animated show is an extremely costly endeavor in every sense of the word.

As Touhou fans, we have done our best in our spare time. We have adopted a professional production process, and invited many pros to provide us with guidance and help.

In the end, we have survived the pressure, and delivered “Prologue” using only a few months.

We consider “Prologue” to be a complete work, which will also be used as the opening for full episodes in the future.

The final production steps are now underway. If everything goes well, we will be selling it at conventions and by mail order by mid-November.

We will try to prepare a Japanese version as soon as possible.

The details, including the content of the package, will be determined and released in mid-October.

Thank you again for your support.

  1. Hey guys, do you mind if I re-upload these videos to Youtube (With links to here)? The servers you uploaded to are very bad/laggy for Western fans of Touhou.

  2. Can’t wait to see this!
    I wish I could contact them in some way because I just thought about funding them with patreon or kick starter or something like that. Wouldn’t it be cool if we could make an actual touhou anime that has enough budget and time and money to work on it for more than an episode a year?

    1. Thank you for your support!
      Although we hope people in the English-speaking zone could make their effort to help us, ZUN, the original author of TOUHOU, is against things like patreon or kick starter.
      So unfortunately we can’t take any crowdfundings.
      Furthermore, it’s beyond our capability to sell the anime in the English-speaking zone. We are just a group of doujin lovers after all.
      In conclusion, there isn’t much we can do so far.

      PS. We are considering having our anime, digital version of course, sold in download websites like DLsite.com in the near future. And English visitors can also buy things from these websites easily
