|※How to make Touhou derived work - Doujin & ZUN's Touhou guidelines|

Hmm... Speaking of which... What about the fangames with crossovers (i.e., Phantasmagoria of Imagine Breaker made by Gore: https://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Re.Phantasmagoria_of_Imagine_Breaker), would that be considered illegal, unless they are specified with the original authors' permission?
If so, then I would regret this... after I cancel my circle which I will make it 5 years from now (take a look at my signature below... MiraikeiBudoukan (Futuristic Vineyard), which it's my own original circle (like JynX, the developer of the Len'en series. So, my bullet-hell-inspired game concept would be "Star of Idols/Aidoruhoshi". No fangame of my work made by others will be made! I'm working in progress! Wait patiently, but don't get too serious).

PoIB falls into the doujin gray area, where companies (selectively) choose to ignore usage of their IP. This is a very Japanese thing and I personally do not know how how each company views it - some are more tolerant than others, and some forms of media are tolerated more than others.
Once again, I'm not a legal expert and we took a very unfortunate plunge into the legalities a few years back that I'm sure nobody here at RaNGE wants to repeat.
What if I made my own bullet hell that has nothing related to Touhou other than the system is similar to it?
Then that'd be just a danmaku shmup. People would take it as a rip-off or homage depending on how it's presented.
Hmm... What about fanmade music tracks? (I have made one with LMMS "FREE", little touhou-stylish, NO PROFITS ALLOWED: https://bit.ly/2U4fKWZ) ???
Are they considered illegal, or are they just half-free? (unlike fan touhou tracks written and printed in CDs)
If so then, I'm very serious creating loopholes on copyright problems to face off. Hey, I'm not trying to criticize for one second, but to let know that I can understand with your answers.
