Thoughts on Forbidden Scrollery Volume 1

Just the other day, I decided I would stop by my local branch of Waterstones to see what new manga they had in stock. I was pleasantly surprised to discover the first volume of Forbidden Scrollery, an official Touhou manga series, was for sale. I decided to buy it, which is why I shall be sharing my thoughts on it here.
For those unaware, Touhou is a series of bullet hell games, created by one man known simply as ZUN. Whilst his artwork leaves a lot to be desired, everything else about the games are pretty great – provided you’re into bullet hell. The music may just arguably the most notable part of any Touhou game.
The amount of fan-created content for Touhou borders on the absurd – you’ve got games, music videos, even unofficial anime. Whilst I could speak at length about the fan’s creations, it is an official manga that I shall be looking at here.
Forbidden Scrollery was originally published by Kadokawa in Comp Ace. It started on October 26th 2012, and concluded on July 27th 2017. Yen Press are the ones releasing the collected volumes in English.
This first volume contains five chapters, as well a some bonus materials.
ZUN wrote the story, whilst the art is by Moe Harukawa.
