Stage 5 boss, a being of half-human and half-phantom. She's both the second gardener for the Saigyouji clan and the guardian of their mistress. The ability is swordfighting.
Youmu arranges the garden with two swords: Roukan-ken is a longer sword that has the power of killing ten ghosts; Hakurou-ken is a shorter one that can slash the human's confusion.
Konpaku Youki, the former gardener, had been the one for about 300 years, but suddenly became a hermit after having made a very young Youmu be his successor. Youmu's swordfighting ability is still in progress, so she needs daily practice. Though Youmu herself has no clue where her master is, she recognizes it by a lesson from him.
This time, following the order the mistress of Saigyouji gave her, she has gathered all of spring essences in Gensokyo to make Saigyou Ayakashi bloom fully.
Here in Hakugyokurou, there are so many cherry blossoms besides Saigyou Ayakashi, which has never bloomed. The former gardener said, "I've seen the fully-bloomed Saigyou Ayakashi before, but this might be the last time." At that time, Youmu had no idea what he meant and why the mistress of Saigyouji gave her an order.
Youmu sweeps the garden of the Saigyouji family; it's about 200 yojanas long (The mistress exaggerates, of course). This garden has a large amount of cherry trees, where is a good site for residents all over the Netherworld. When spring comes, Youmu is very busy in sweeping.
(Note: Yojana is a unit of the distance that ancient India's imperial army could move per day. 1 yojana equals about 10-15 km. In other words, the Saigyouji's garden is about 2,000-3,000 km. long... Is that so?)
This year isn't the exception, too. The ghosts are really thrilled by the wonderful cherry trees. Everyone said, "I'm happy to be a ghost!" On the other hand, Youmu, the half-human saw this raving scene and got a half sympathy, "I'm half happy to be a half phantom!"
Now, all she should do is wait for the blooming of Saigyou Ayakashi.
A gardener who works in Hakugyokurou and lives there. She's half-human and half-phantom, half-dead and half-alive, half-phantom and half-reality, and altogether half-baked. Yet she has two swords.
She applies herself as hard as she can to anything and everything, but it hardly ever pays off. Compared to the quirky cast of characters that inhabits Gensokyo, her all too straightforward personality is very easy to understand.
She's very good at fighting arts for someone so half-baked. She's also quite good at magic for such a half-baked character, and actually has a good sense of balance between the two. Using the Roukanken and Hakurouken, which were said to be forged by youkai, she can cut through enemies and ghosts and bullets and people's worries. The things she can't cut through are next to none.
Roukanken (the longer one) has the power to kill ten ghosts in one slash. Hakurouken is said to be able to cut through people's confusion, but of course, both of them can also kill living humans.
Both human and phantom being.
She's a half-human and half-phantom in the Netherworld. Her ability is swordfighting.
She attacks her enemy with Roukanken and Hakurouken. She has two kind of body: human and phantom. This means she's incompletely useful girl.
She's supposed to be a swordfighting teacher of Yuyuko-sama, still, she's treated as a gardener so far.
She's so immature you can't help liking because of her straightforward and pure character, yet she's always made fun by anybody for her nature.
The nature of residents in Gensokyo is beyond simplicity.
Main weapon is the swords, and her effort.
This time, she makes her trip with Yuyuko.
Focused movement is only available when she's alone.
It's hard to use because of her narrow range of attack and the unique movement of her soul figure.
When you use Spell Card, you can't attack for a while.
Besides, Spell Card is also hard to use...
By the way, you can return the soul figure back to Youmu by changing to Yuyuko.
Species: Comprised equally of human and phantom
Abilities: Master of Swords
She's the gardener of Hakugyokurou (which is in the world past death), but originally she was a swordmanship teacher for Yuyuko.
Even she herself is not certain either she is alive or not, human or phantom.
However, she slowly but surely grows older as time passes, so maybe she's alive.
Konpaku's swords were designed primarily for use against ghosts and spiritual beings, but they still seem to work well against "pre-deads".
