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!
