The blonde one is Flandre Scarlet, the cyan haired one on the right is Remilia Scarlet & the one on the left is Sakuya Izayoi, though Sakuya has Silver/Gray hair but it can be noticed easier if you go to the source of the image.

Lots of Meiling harem images recently, is there any reason for it? Meiling revealed to be the Scarlet Mansion residents' secret crush or something?

^ She has a kind, uncomplicated personality that's like a big sister who supports everyone. This gives her great dynamics with all the weirdos at the SDM, making her ideal harem protagonist material. Regardless of whether you go with the useless, dumb Chugoku persona who's clumsy in an adorable way, or with the idea of a disciplined, honourable martial artist from a distant land, she's got traits that everyone would like.

That being said, I don't know if it's a recent trend or if these are old images only just uploaded to Dynasty now. I've seen Meiling-centered harems in some older works too, so maybe it's just the result of being a popular character who's neither a MILF and nor a loli.

@MoldarachDS I think they look almost zero % like any of those characters. Remi and sakuya look little like them facially.
Sakyua does NOT have blue hair. Neither does Patchy. Remi's hair is not a mile off but still the wrong colour.
Where are flans wings? Why does Remi have elf ears? Why is Sakuya dressed like an OL? Why is Meilings star in her hair?

Some of that is nitpicking if taken alone, but all combined?
If you draw characters and even big fans cant recognise half of them i gotta count that as a fail.

^ That's called artistic license. It was pretty obvious to me who each of them were, and I know hardly anything about Touhou Project characters except what I've chosen to read on the wiki or gleaned from this site over the years. The coloration, especially of Sakuya's hair, seems pretty normal on the second picture at the source link.

^It IS nearly normal in the other image.. doesn't explain why its blue in this one. Artistic licence is fine but if you mess with charactes so much people dont recognise them then thats not a good change. patchy and remi's hair has changed too, and their outfits AND no wings on flan etc- it all adds up and after enough changes- they are just not the same characters.

Its like If i made marisa tall and black haired and gave her wings and dressed her in a chinese outfit.. should I be surprised if nobody knew it was marisa? I could claim artistic licence all I wanted but It still wouldnt look like her.

^ The artist thought it was a "good change," and I thought it was a "good change." Many other people on the artist's pixiv thought it was a "good change." Maybe the problem isn't with the artist, or me, or them?
