Dōjin (self-published) circle Manpaku Jinja began streaming a preview on Friday for the fifth episode of its "Gensō Bankakyō ~The Memories of Phantasm~" (Kaleidoscope of Illusions: The Memories of Phantasm) anime project based on the Touhou Project games. The fifth episode is titled "Hana no Ihen no Shō (Zenpen)" (Flower's Disaster Chapter [First Part]).
Manpaku Jinja screened and distributed the episode at the Tohoku Ongaku Festival and at the Manpaku Jinja Fan Thanksgiving event on May 24. The episode is also available on DVD for 1,500 yen (about US$12) at the following shops: Melon Books, Grep, Akiba Hobby, Digital Stage, Comic Jiku Chū Shinha, Gamers, Akiba Oo, and Bookmate.
The circle also plans to upload the episode to YouTube and Niconico in the future.
Manpuku Jinja streamed the full first 16-minute episode of "Gensō Bankakyō ~The Memories of Phantasm~" in August 2011 after debuting the work at Comic Market 80. The circle streamed the second episode in June 2013 after debuting it at the Hakurei Jinja Reitaisai Touhou Project-only dōjinshi event the month before. Manpaku Jinja streamed episodes three and four in December.
