Mangetsu
Expand
Mangetsu (a Touhou LW original) refers to a full moon, which occurs when the ecliptic longitudes of the sun and moon differ by one hundred and eighty degrees. This is an apt temperament for Kagerou, as she is a werewolf. Kagerou is endowed with Wood Phase as a wolf youkai, and Moon Essence for her transformational nature.

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.

Character Shots

Kagerou Imaizumi's Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). She attacks with a wolf howl. Wolves howl to signal their pack. It is said that wolves are one of the few animals other than humans that communicate with their voices. This aspect might make wolves especially susceptible to becoming youkai... but there has been no indication of any werewolves in Gensokyo other than Kagerou.

Kagerou Imaizumi's Focus Shot (a Touhou LW original). She attacks with her ferocious predator fangs. Everyone fears being bitten by a wolf because they have sharp fangs and a strong jaw. It is theorized that the Japanese word for wolf, ookami, originated from the word for a big bite or great god, which are also pronounced ookami.

Kagerou Imaizumi's Spell Card. An attack where she dashes through and bites her opponents multiple times.

The wolf might be a deliberate, cunning, and composed animal.

Kagerou Imaizumi's Spell Card. She repeatedly pounces on her targets. Wolves may seem like tenacious hunters, but they often give up chasing their prey before they catch it. If you ever get attacked by a pack of wolves, you should be able to escape as long as you keep running. That is if you keep running for... seven hours straight.

Kagerou Imaizumi's Last Word (a Touhou LW original). She strikes forcefully from a great height with momentum. Since long ago, people who turn into animals have been regarded as demonic beings, like transforming witches or devilish vampires. However, some believe that they were people afflicted with a strange illness or a group of people who were forced to become wild brigands through discrimination.

One of the reasons why such beings have become widely known in modern times is that werewolves and vampires have become a kind of silver screen sensation. The nature of these monsters changed little by little as they gained fame through the cinema and were depicted in various other forms of entertainment, but they always remained a topic of conversation. Everyone knows about werewolves and vampires, and they are very popular, but few people truly believe that they exist.

Character Ability

Capable of transforming into a wolf on the night of the full moon
Expand
Kagerou Imaizumi's ability as a werewolf. This ability changes her appearance into a wolf on the night of the full moon.

Since she transforms into a wolf when using Spell Cards, that appearance is presumably her wolf form. If this is the case, her appearance with wolf ears on the top of her head may be her human form. On the other hand, the fact that she is concerned about how hairy she gets on the night of the full moon suggests that her appearance with wolf ears on the top of her head could be her wolf form. If this is true, then her human form would be a mystery. Perhaps she has a form that is no different from an ordinary human being.

Can she only transform into a wolf on the night of the full moon? And can she remain untransformed on the night of the full moon? The answers to these questions remain a mystery because no one has ever seen what she looks like right before and right after her transformation.

In addition to youkai rabbits and fairies, the bamboo forest has many youkai with a close connection to the moon. So, presumably, Kagerou must constantly demonstrate at least some magic power to protect herself and prevent other youkai from looking down on her...
DMG to effective elements 20% UP.
When using Graze, party's Agility 1 level UP (1 turn).

Character Analysis

Kagerou Imaizumi was released on November 4, 2022 in Prayer “Shimmering Swimmer Shadow Shifter”.

Who stalks the Bamboo Forest at night in a dress of red, white and black? Kagerou is the resident werewolf of Gensokyo, and part of the Youkai Grassroots Network that rose up in rebellion during the events of Double Dealing Character. Her canine traits allow her to fulfil the requirements of being a Speed-class Friend in Touhou Lost Word, zooming towards the enemy’s destruction. Did you know that Kagerou grows hairier under a full moon? Now you do!

  • 0P Wood break on Focus Shot
  • Self supply of Yang ATK, Agility, Accuracy, and Spirit P through Skills, Spell Cards.
  • Additional chance of more Spirit P (0.5P, 30%) and Agility (1 Level, 50%)  at start of turn through her passives.
  • Slicing allows her to convert her Agility into further damage.
  • 20% extra damage with Moon and Wood bullets on enemies who are weak to it.

As an Offensive Support

  • Team wide boosts for Agility through Grazing and her second Spell Card

As a Defensive Support and Tank

  • Boosts team Evasion through her first Spell Card

Story Card Recommendations

(Card recommendations last updated on November 04, 2022)

Spell Card

The Witch of Scarlet Dreams naturally enables her higher bullet lines, allowing her to unlock the full potential of her Spell Cards. Offensively, Kagerou is 100% pure Body (Bullet), meaning that cards like Stand-In Shrine Maiden and Eating Contest will do the most to boost her damage output.

Last Word

Did I mean all her Spell Cards are pure Body? That includes her Last Word, meaning Stand-In Shrine Maiden and Eating Contest work perfectly fine when slotted in here too.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Go with her third skill, Beast Turning for a boost to Accuracy and Yang ATK, allowing her to hit where it hurts. Her second skill, Pampas and Moon should come next, giving her Spirit P and team wide Agility boost which she can convert to slicing damage. Feel free to upgrade her first skill, Extinct Species last. The Agility and Evasion up simply isn’t as impactful as the rest.

Character Strengths

+ Decent Wood and Moon breaks, with 0P Wood break on Focus Shot

+ Slicing helps with damage boosting

Character Weaknesses

- Single target Last Word limits her to hitting single targets

- Selfish attacker

- Evasion tanking is iffy at best, especially at low levels.
