Wow. This is some "Sakana no Miru Yume"-level of bullshit on your part, Marisa.

Marisa is playing 4D Chess here. This gambit will end up improving their relationship to new heights.

I think I'm messing this up cause I keep thinking the situation isn't that hard to fix which I think goes against the first law of Aaaaaaaaaaangst. "Quality" angst probably shouldn't give me this much wiggle room. I probably missed something too. I like it apart from that.

A bit confused by what Marisa's planning here, but, hey, you do you.

Also, I think this thing perfectly exemplifies why Reimu's whole youkai-killing thing is so weird. I mean, she just killed a (presumably) innocent dude just 'cause he wanted to turn himself into a youkai. She's also friends with youkai to boot... I've only played a few Touhou games, but I don't think she actually killed anyone in any of those games. Maybe she just targets youkai who try to harm humans, but, I dunno, it just seems a bit weird to me.

Wtf, I didn't really understand why she told Reimu that. That was kinda hurt Marisa... How rude of her. :\

Love Magic = Curse Magic


"What do I have that Reimu doesn't have?"
"I decided to use love magic"

From the start Marisa was obsessed with Reimu. Reimu was the bar for which Marisa obsessively yearned to surpass. Unfortunately Reimu paid her no mind. Marisa cast love magic to grab Reimu's attention.

"In your case I don't have to worry, right, Marisa?"

Time passes. Reimu ended up developing feelings for Marisa. This could be due to either Reimu not having to worry about Marisa becoming a something non-human and having to kill her (thus allowing herself to become closer to Marisa) or the love magic Marisa cast.

"Surely, Reimu won't ever love again."
"An unrequited love my whole life."

Marisa's rejection Reimu's feelings of love can be considered a curse in a way. She stole Reimu's love. The toll was, of course, an unrequited love on her own part.

"She won't come to like me, either."
"I don't need even the slightest whimsical affection."
"And someday I will defeat her."

In the end, Reimu is much more conscious of Marisa and the two of them are tied by their emotions toward each other. With Reimu's feelings out of the way there is nothing stopping Marisa on her unbending path to surpassing Reimu.

I decided, that is (very twisted) love.

"It's unforgiveable for humans to become youkai."

Even though he had no intentions of hurting anyone and out of the youkai you fought that posed a threat to villagers you still straight up murdered him.

It's limited to the humans in the Human Village, for anyone else it's fair game. It was the most dickish thing Reimu's ever done tho.

Also, Marisa? You're an idiot.

It's because (through my eyes at least) she doesn't protect the humans, but Gensokyo itself.

Well, as drpepperfan said, it's perfectly possible that it's limited to humans of the Human Village, that considering that other humans are "irregulars" and thus, unaffected by that "rule"... From here onward is just me guessing, but there's also the option that only humans who intentionally become Youkai are "Jinyou", and if I remember correctly, in Alice and Byakuren case, because of the strong magical power they... transcended humanity (I don't even know if we can call them Youkai with just it...) without really desiring that (but then again, I can be terribly wrong here), and then, can not be categorized as Jinyou...
Well, there's a few other explanations I could make up, and some of them could actually make sense (but I'll spare you of more reading, and myself of more typing), so just assuming that something is wrong is not really right... (but, again, I could just be wrong here and you right for pointing the wrongness)
