Touhou Gumon Kuju ~ Symposium of Post-mysticism (東方求聞口授 ~ Symposium of Post-mysticism, lit. "Eastern Oral Talks by Hieda") is an official Touhou Fanbook released on April 27, 2012. The book holds information of almost every character starting from Mountain of Faith to Ten Desires.

Information

Character profiles are interspersed among the so-called "symposium" - essentially a dialogue hosted by Marisa Kirisame featuring Kanako Yasaka, Byakuren Hijiri, and Toyosatomimi no Miko. These longer interviews involve the three discussing various topics while Hieda no Akyuu records their discussions.

Various articles from the Bunbunmaru Newspaper and the Kakashi Spirit News are also included at the end of the book, and deal with characters that weren't given an official profile, as well as certain events and various character interactions.

Press

The announcement that ZUN would be releasing a new print work sometime in Winter 2011/2012 was first made by Okonogi in Nikenme Radio's sixteenth episode. ZUN personally did not say anything about it during the interview.[1]

The first available news regarding Symposium of Post-mysticism was from Touhou Project Doujin Tsuhan Jouhou website.[2] From what they announced, the release date for the book was set to be January 26, 2012. In addition, Amazon.jp also listed the product up to the store for pre-order.

In mid-January, Ichijinsha's website for the book stated that due to "various circumstances", the release of the book would be sometime in March. It was updated on January 25 on Amazon's website, which gave it a March 31 release date.[3] On March 6, the book's release was delayed once again, this time to April 25.[4] Ichijinsha's official website then updated the release date to April 27, two days later, on April 10.[5]

Japanese doujinshi store Tora no Ana offered a Reimu folder as a preorder bonus.
