Touhou Youhoubu(Leaf Dance) ~ Leafwhisper Ode to Blooming (東方葉萌舞 ~ Leafwhisper Ode to Blooming) is a vertical danmaku shooting fangame developed and published by Ryann1908, developer of games such as Unstable and Unimaginable Power and Autocatalysis of Unrecognizable Katzenjammer. It was developed for the Bullet Hell Artistry 7 event in Bullet Hell Engines — a Discord server dedicated to the discussion and development of bullet hell games/engines —, a danmaku contest with the theme of the 7th edition being "to implement a mechanic taken from a genre other than danmaku in a danmaku game".


The gameplay of the game features Marisa Kirisame as the protagonist and derives directly from that of scene games, with an added strategy layer from the Plants vs. Zombies series.

There are 3 acts in the game (alongside a tutorial level) that require the player to bring into the act planted or equipped shrubs, with the objective of defeating enemies in the background plane while dodging the usual Touhou danmaku in the above plane. These shrubs can be obtained in a shop within the game's main menu, with the use of seeds, of which can be gathered during gameplay by defeating enemies. Equipped shrubs are used as an additional shot type for the player, while planted shrubs are responsible for dealing with the background enemies.
