Amekaze
Expand
Amekaze (a Touhou LW original) refers to rain and wind, as well as wind that carries rain or wind that is very humid. This is an apt temperament for a tengu, as they are said to be able to manipulate the weather in the mountains. Aya is endowed with Wood Phase, the element of wind, and Moon Essence, with her savvy communication skills.

The strong and kind Wood Phase resists Water Phase, because water nourishes wood, but it is weak to Metal Phase, because metal carves wood.

The cooperative and indecisive Moon Essence resists the alluring and arrogant Sun Essence, but it is weak to the diverse and uncooperative Star Essence.

Info
The Spread Shot of Aya Shameimaru from the world with all the flowers in bloom. She uses a leaf fan to bombard her target with gusts of wind. Tengu are said to possess strangely shaped fans called leaf fans or feather fans. These fans most likely cause the sudden gusts of wind that are called tengu gales. The plant fatsia japonica, or yatsute, meaning eight hands in Japanese, are also called tengu's leaf fans. And even though their name means eight hands, their leaves are divided into an odd number of lobes.

Info
The Focus Shot of Aya Shameimaru from the world with all the flowers in bloom. She pelts her targets with bullets of intense wind. Aya's specialty is manipulating wind. Many of the mysterious phenomena that occur in the mountains are said to be caused by tengu. Wind has been symbolic of tengu since ancient times because it is a force that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

A Spell Card of Aya Shameimaru from the world with all the flowers in bloom. She creates a path with bullets in this attack. It is written in the ancient Japanese mythological records that Sarutahiko guided Ninigi and the other descendants of the sun goddess when they descended from Takamagahara. Sarutahiko is also thought to be the progenitor of the tengu. He must have had a very long nose.

Bullet Info
A Spell Card of Aya Shameimaru from the world with all the flowers in bloom. This attack lights up all of Heaven and Earth. Sarutahiko is thought to be the progenitor of the tengu. He is also worshipped as a god of blockades that prevent evil and misfortune from entering an area because he guided Ninigi when he descended from Takamagahara aboard the Ame no Iwafune (the stone boat of Heaven). Nigihayahi, who was also aboard the Ame no Iwafune, is also called Terukuni (which means illuminated country) and is thought to be the same god as Ninigi's older brother, Hoakari. Perhaps Sarutahiko and Nigihayahi worked together to guide the boat.

Bullet Info
The Last Word of Aya Shameimaru from the world with all the flowers in bloom (a Touhou LW original). A giant and monstrous shellfish attacks her targets in this attack. When Sarutahiko was fishing at a place called Azaka, a monstrous shellfish called the Hirabugai clamped down onto his hand. Some think the Hirabugai was a type of scallop, while others think it was a giant clam, but a certain scholar of Japanese classical literature declared that it was a type of pen shell. It must have been an incredibly large pen shell, as it is written that Sarutahiko died from this incident. Upon Sarutahiko's death, his soul was split into three parts, which indicates the strong relationship between this god and the Koushin faith, a Japanese religion with Taoist origins. The central concept of this faith is that Three Corpses called Sanshi are said to reside within the body and are freed when their host dies. Incidentally, pen shells are meant to be delicious.

Character Ability

Capable of manipulating wind
Expand
The ability of Aya Shameimaru from the world with all the flowers in bloom. It is essentially the same as our version of Aya's ability. However, this Aya may have taken a peculiar stance in regards to the Flower Blooming Incident. In worlds where incidents or occurrences have been prolonged, there is a tendency for dwellers of those worlds to be strongly affected by them. However, this Aya does not seem to have been affected much at all by the Flower Blooming Incident. In fact, it looks like she has even distanced herself from the effects that the incident should have had on her. In our world, Aya went out searching for a scoop during the flower incident, but did this Aya do the same? The tengu society on the Youkai Mountain is complicated and mysterious. It is said that they inherited the social structure left behind by the oni, but it is possible that the tengu made quite a few innovations of their own. There are also many mysteries regarding their relationship with humans. Furthermore, the origin of the tengu as a species is extremely bizarre and complex since it is a combination of ancient Shinto gods mixed with concepts from other religions and youkai folklore. This is why it is difficult to ascertain the motives of tengu, even of an individual like Aya Shameimaru. Is she an ally of humans or youkai? Does she value profits over her own enjoyment, or vice-versa? Does she act out of a sense of duty or calculated risk? She could be all of these things at once or maybe none at all. This ambiguity is perhaps what makes Aya, along with the other tengu, youkai. Perhaps the Aya of this world was working under the orders of someone else. Or maybe she decided to base her actions on Sarutahiko, the progenitor god of tengu, of her own volition.

Character Analysis

Aya Shameimaru (Flower) is an alternate version of Aya similar to Eternal Reisen or Scarlet Reimu in the sense that she is a version of Aya that takes place during an older story, usually one of their origin. That much so is true as this Aya made her in-game debut in Touhou Kaeidzuka ~ Phantasmagoria of Flower View, the 9th installment of the Touhou Project franchise. This isn’t actually Aya’s first appearance, however, as she debuted in the first official Touhou book, Bohemia Archive in Japanese Red (2005). In Touhou LostWord, Aya does not disappoint in the slightest.

Flower Aya’s kit, for the most part, revolves around her excellent utility, buffing her allies and debuffing her opponents. Aya mainly focuses on the buffing of her team’s accuracy and the debuffing of both the opponent’s dodge as well as their Yang DEF. In addition, her breaking is phenomenal. Collectively, Aya has 8 Wood breaks, 3 Sun breaks, 3 Water breaks, 4 Star breaks, and 4 Metal breaks. In addition, one of her Metal Wood breaks is a P0 break on her first shot, which means it is repeatable every turn.
Solo Stage Farms: 3-3-3

For farming, Aya is a solid addition. Her overall first turn damage is definitely considerable and can stand up to all but the best of the cast, however, it pales in comparison to the top tier farmers. She is able to enhance her own damage very well between scaling, buffs, and debuffs, but falls just short of being able to farm most of the story cards by herself. She is able to provide a ton of accurate support to her team which is certainly good for the units who can pack enough of a pun, but this isn’t very practical for efficient farming.

For harder content, Aya excels in team buffing and breaking. Killers, slicing, access to 5 bullet lines turn 1, great self buffs, and AoE debuffs all contribute to excellent last word damage.  Otherwise, she is most delegated to buffing, breaking, and applying her 2 Darkness anomalies provided from her second skill, Geta of Gales.

Overall, Flower Aya is a powerful team player who performs the utility role better than any other in her class. In addition, her powerful breaking makes her a must-have for challenges like the Scarlet Devil Tower. 

The Slicing scaling for Aya's attacks are as follows:

Extra Fans (Flower): 0%/0%/30%/0%/0%/0% 
Tengu Gale Bullet (Flower): 0%/0%/30%/0%/30%/0% 
Crossroad Sign: Saruta Cross: 0%/30%/0%/0%/0%/0% 
Blockade Sign: Terukuni Shining Through Heaven and Earth: 0%/0%/0%/0%/40%/0% 
Giant Shellfish of Azaka: 0%/0%/50%/0%/50%/0% 

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

Aya benefits a lot from P which makes use of her solid breaking, otherwise, Yang damage is the way to go to make her hit just a little bit harder.

Last Word

A bit of a no-brainer for any character that can capitalize on the Heavy Bullet damage boost.
 

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Wind God Girl, Aya's third skill, should be prioritized first to bump her last word damage up significantly.  After that, Wet Crow Plumage enhances her ability to support the team by debuffing enemy evasion.  Lastly, Geta of Gales forces the enemy to reckon with both blindness and accuracy down, making it much harder for them to do damage to Aya or the rest of your team.
 

Character Strengths

+Great utility from both team buffs and enemy debuffs to evasion, accuracy, and yang defense. 
+Her self quick means the debuffs will be applied to the enemies before your other friends get their shots in - perfect for taking down extra stubborn enemies.
+P0 Wood shot and a host of other elements for breaking
+Good turn 1 damage

Character Weaknesses

-Good farmer, but not as good at farming Story Cards as a result of her kit
-Reliant on anti bullets to deal sufficient damage
