(9) or nine-ball.

In the game manual of Touhou's 9th game (東方花映塚 ~ Phantasmagoria of Flower View), Cirno, pitted as the second player character, was labeled as "⑨" - it stood for バカ ("baka" - "idiot"). Ever since, ⑨ gained notoriety as Cirno's nickname.
Don't be such a ⑨!

Gensokyo (幻想郷, literally Land of Illusions or Land of Fantasy; more accurately romanized as Gensōkyō or Gensoukyou) is the fictional land that the entire Touhou series takes place in. Its culture vaguely resembles that of feudal Japan, with a lot of folktale elements added on.

Gensokyo was originally a desolate, haunted region of Japan ages ago. The youkai that lived there began to terrorize the surrounding lands, and thus powerful, heroic humans were sent to exorcise and exterminate them. The off and on battle between humans and youkai continued on until 1884 A.D., when Gensokyo was sealed off from this increasingly scientific and skeptical world with the creation of the Hakurei Border. There has been little contact between our societies ever since. Today, the only known gateway between Gensokyo and this world is the Hakurei Shrine, which stands in isolation along the border on distant mountains of the far east.
Gensokyo is populated mainly by youkai, but a decent human and rabbit population lives there as well. Some of its inhabitants went there to hide, to escape, to find shelter when no one and nowhere else would accept them. Many of them just like the natural darkness.

ZUN is the nickname of 太田順也 (romanized: Jun'ya Ota), is the sole known member of Team Shanghai Alice, and is the designer, programmer, script writer, and composer of the extremely popular Touhou Project series. He is seen to be rather reclusive, and thus very little is known about him, except that he's very fond of beer.

Born on March 18, 1977 in Hakuba, Nagano, and graduated from Tokyo Denki University.

ZUN got his name from the sound team Zuntata at Taito Corp., the same company that he worked with. Coincidentally, the word 'zun' is a Chinese bronze vessel used to store alcohol. Taito made Darius Gaiden, one of ZUN's favorite shooter games. That's one of the known reasons for him to start the Touhou Project.
Zun gave a lecture at Meiji University a couple of years ago!

Alternative spelling of touhou

Due to differences in pronunciation across different languages, there has always been a discussion on how to actually romanize 東方. Officially, it is written as Tōhō, but most often written as touhou. The "ou" in touhou is pronounced similarly to the "o" in Tokyo
Did you hear about the new toho 12.5 ? It's a follow-up of StB!

A touhou character that first appeared in the PC game Touhou 11. Utsuho Reiuji (霊烏路空) is a Hell Raven, or yatagarasu, holding the power to control nuclear fusion. Her character design shows remarkable resemblance to Chernobyl. She is sometimes referred to as "The Black Bird of Chernobyl", though a comparison between her Yatagarasu eye and the eye of Sauron has also been made. Utsuho spends more of her time maintaining an underground geyser, together with Rin Kaenbyou
I just got myself into stage 6, the Blazing Hell, and boy did my shrine maiden complain about the heat. It wasn't until we encountered the boss, Utsuho Reiuji, that she finally stopped complaining
