Try buy an Very Tall hat... I suggest buy the Cone hat. NO JOKE, it helps you in climbing (there is an bug when you walk you can skip 1ladder) and helps you run [in the first minigame, sometimes you fall into an platform with that hat). GLORY HATS!
Here is an tip for the male contest. An addition for the "adcel_240" comment:
For go into the show, you need to upgrade your hair, cut it the 3 options, I did mine until Level 30.
Them, the show will start, for don't get ANY wrong answer (when the actor says), follow this order: 1-No, 2-Yes, 3-I like my hair, 4-Yes, 5-I like my Hair, 6-No, 7-No, 8-I like my Hair, 9-Yes, 10-I like my hair. Now test the skills on DDR (better you have luck, I played with lag here). And "Ta Da"!!! KEEP THIS COMMENT GOING TOO!!!
Don't know what you did that. The Touhou Project level is kinda wrongly. You know that this is IKARUGA right? It have the black and white shots, the elephant is kinda White, and will absorb the white balls, like Ikaruga, In touhou, you die in every single shot, so yea, it's not Touhou
