Marisa Kirisame runs into Hieda no Akyuu on her way through the Human Village, and notices that she's carrying a strange book - a youma book, said to be indecipherable. Afterwards she makes her way to the Hakurei Shrine to ask Reimu Hakurei about them, but she doesn't know much on the subject. Marisa explains their dark and mysterious nature, and the two decide to take a visit to Suzunaan to talk to Kosuzu Motoori about it. She reveals her collection of demon books, as well as her recently-awakened powers that allow her to decipher any sort of script. Reimu worries that it might be dangerous, but Kosuzu is not very concerned.

A mysterious and lovely thing
I basically became a fan of Touhou this year in preparation for reading ZUN's manga. Forbidden Scrollery was the one I was most interested in. I played and enjoyed all the games, went into this expecting something similar, and...didn't really get it. NOT a bad thing, though. Not at all. Forbidden Scrollery may be different from how Touhou usually is, but that both 1) makes it more accessible to new, uninitiated readers and 2) makes it pretty damn incredible. I have a lot to say about the series and the review I wrote for it shows as much. Forbidden Scrollery is dark, charming, intriguing, and beautiful. Very, very good manga.
