Nansei Project (南西 Project) is a series of music albums created solely by LENK64 (though some were collaborated with a group called the Nansei Dev Team from 2014-2016), heavily inspired by Touhou Project. Although it takes inspiration from Touhou, it is technically not a Touhou fanwork, having it's own canonicity and cast of original characters separate from it.

A total of 54 albums have been released; 40 main albums, 10 bonus tracks and 4 miscellaneous tracks.

General Information[]

Nansei takes place in a world known as Kuusou no Sekai, a land where fantasy and reality coexist together. The main characters of the project are Miko Kokunai, a shaman of the Kokunai Shrine, and Ritsuka Hayashi, her adopted sister and friend who works as the shrine's gardener. Both girls set out to resolve various incidents that happen throughout Kuusou no Sekai in order to maintain peace, meeting various characters along the way.

Nansei initially didn't have stories nor character bios for the first few albums as it started off as a Touhou fanwork until the release of the 4th album. The story was formed starting with the 3rd bonus album and 7.5th project. From there, the setting was revealed along with the character bios.

Due to the similarities it shares with Touhou, Nansei is often mistaken for being a video game series. It is not one however, and no games are planned to be made at this time.

Name and Concept[]

Nansei (南西) means "Southwest", and can refer to some or all of the areas, cultures or histories within the Southwestern areas. This contrasts how its inspiration Touhou (東方) takes place in the East/Eastern areas.

Nansei also follows Touhou's naming scheme for its titles with the format having the kanji for Nansei and 3 other kanji that are closely related to the album's story (e.g. 南西OOO).

There are some exceptions to this however such as bonus tracks following a separate naming scheme altogether.

Also unlike Touhou, spell cards in Nansei are called "spell presentations".
