Character Shots

Marisa Kirisame (Lunar War Enchanter)'s Spread Shot. She shoots star bullets over a wide area. The star bullets created by Marisa's mini hakkero multi-purpose launcher apparently taste sweet like the Japanese sugar candy, konpeito. There have been scientific studies performed to try and model how the star shape of konpeito is formed.

Marisa Kirisame (Lunar War Enchanter)'s Focus Shot. She boldly launches a barrage of missile bullets. It is speculated that the missile bullets created by Marisa's mini hakkero multi-purpose launcher utilize fuel derived from mushrooms. Marisa is well known for using laser and star bullets, but she loves missile bullets just as much. Although the drain effect of these missiles has been sealed away, they are still effective as loud and flashy fireworks.

Marisa Kirisame (Lunar War Enchanter)'s Spell Card. She switches her mini hakkero multi-purpose launcher to machine-gun mode and unleashes a barrage of stars and missiles. This Spell Card was initially a variation of Master Spark, but since the magic of the mini hakkero is sealed away, it is difficult to precisely control lasers with extremely wide beams. However, all the star and missile bullets more than compensate in terms of firepower. She definitely isn't afraid of tackling things head-on.

Marisa Kirisame (Lunar War Enchanter)'s Spell Card. She switches her mini hakkero multi-purpose launcher to cannon mode and pulls the trigger. This is a Master Spark with an even wider beam. While perhaps a little crude in implementation, there is a certain appeal in making the already impressive Master Spark's laser beam as wide as possible. Cheap tricks are utterly futile in the face of overwhelming firepower.

Marisa Kirisame (Lunar War Enchanter)'s Last Word (a Touhou LW original). She keeps firing Master Spark after Master Spark at her targets from all directions. Extremely wide lasers are cool, but they could spell defeat if your opponent manages to dodge one. So Marisa decided to explore a more conservative tactic in surrounding and attacking her opponents from all sides―which is just as cool. The diameter of each laser beam is smaller, but the color of the light has been improved from yellow to green, increasing the firepower. This attack is overwhelming with the sheer number of lasers and the rate of fire.

Character Ability

Marisa Kirisame's sealed ability. It was most likely sealed away due to the incident, and it hasn't fully recovered since. The reason for this is still unclear and requires further investigation. Marisa Kirisame's Specialized Military Outfit: The design and manufacture of this outfit were largely based on the knowledge and techniques of the magicians who dwell in the forest; Alice Margatroid and Narumi Yatadera. It seems that the outfit also incorporates technology borrowed willingly from Kappa Industries (a group of manufacturing plants headed by Nitori) and somewhat less willingly from Patchouli Knowledge's Knowledge Institute. All of the specialized military outfits are equipped with barrier chaff. Mini Hakkero Multi-Purpose Launcher: Marisa's primary weapon. It incorporates a mechanism that artificially activates the mini hakkero, which has lost its magic. The mini hakkero is fitted into the tip of the barrel, and the rest of the device houses the components necessary to activate it. The mini hakkero finally regained most of its functionality by artificially replicating Alice's and Narumi's shaping and manipulation magic into a mechanical form. It seems they also used Patchouli's knowledge and experience with rockets to help with the design. The launcher is fitted with the option to deploy replica armaments, but this is merely a virtual increase in the number of weapon barrels. The firepower solely relies on the output from the single mini hakkero. Simplified Retractable Launchers: In addition to the mini hakkero's replica armaments, it also has the option to deploy smaller physical launchers that retract and are usually stored within the device. They consume less energy than the replicas yet provide less firepower, so Marisa uses one or the other depending on the situation. Wearable String Net: A webbing of wires deployed within the inner layer of Marisa's outfit that provides increased strength and endurance, similar to a powered exoskeleton. The design is based on the magic strings Alice uses to manipulate her dolls. They are invisible to the naked eye and transmit vast amounts of energy at great speed and precision. Token Issuing Golems: They are built into various parts of Marisa's outfit and provide automatic repair, reinforcement, and recovery by continually issuing virtual magic tokens, like how hormones are issued in the body to regulate biological processes. The design of these golems is based on Narumi's life-manipulating magic, so the inanimate objects can move and act like living beings to provide all sorts of benefits to Marisa.

Character Analysis

B3 Marisa Kirisame was released on November 11th, 2021 in Ultra Festival: Lunar War Enchanter.

Coming to us straight with the release of Hifuu Lost Word, Marisa Kirisame (Lunar War Enchanter) is a version of the magician whose powers were sealed away. Whilst going in to further details on that would be a spoiler at the moment, rest assured she’s no less competent for it: instead, she’s loaded to the teeth with superior firepower. Featuring technology from Kappa Industries (run by, well, the kappa and headed by Nitori) and the Knowledge Institute (headed by Patchouli), she’s here to fight for you as an S+ Tier Friend.

For farming, she’s capable of doing a good amount of story card stages solo thanks to her high damage Spell Cards and All targeting Last Word. 
Solo Stage Farms: 2-7-1, 3-3-3, 3-6-3 

For harder fights, Marisa serves as a top tier damage dealer and Yin, CRIT, and to a lesser extent YANG supporter. For starters her All targeting Last Word, Remote Master Spark deals stupid amounts of damage, between its high base crit rate, 6 levels of Yang ATK UP, 3 levels of Accuracy UP, and 2 layers of Burn Barriers to all targets (plus a third to the primary target).  Whilst normally Burn only works on Yang, much of Marisa's Last Word Bullets are tagged with Specular, which means it’s treated as Yin damage - meaning it benefits from Yin DEF DOWN and Burn (but not Yang DEF DOWN or Poison). Combine this with her character ability giving her party 1 level of CRIT ATK UP for 1 turn each time she grazes, and a litany of amazing skills which give, altogether: 1.5 Spirit Power UP with .25 being for the whole party, 3 Accuracy UP for 3 turns, 2 levels of Crit Accuracy UP for 3 turns to the party, 3 levels of CRIT ATK UP for 1 turn to the party, 2 levels of Yang ATK UP for 3 turns to the party, and Quick (to make sure her Burn goes first). 

As a result, Marisa’s damage is absolutely bonkers and she supports the rest of her party with great damage to boot. On top of this, her basic shots have P0 elements: Spread Star gets a Solo targeting Fire Break, and Magic Drain Missile gets a Solo targeting Star Break. Love Sign: Machine Gun Spark is perhaps the weakest part of her kit, being a ‘mere’ 3 Star & 2 Fire Solo targeting Breaks for 2 Spirit Power with 1 layer of Burn to all targets for 2 turns with 1 more to the primary target. Lastly, Love Sign: Wide Master inflicts the same amount of Burn, alongside 3 Fire & 1 Star All targeting Breaks for 3 Spirit Power and 2 levels of Accuracy up for 3 turns (useful to ensure the Breaks don’t miss, although she hardly needs it for her Last Word).

Lastly, her characteristics are also incredibly good. Flare Automaton inflicts 1 layer of Burn to a single enemy, letting her crush a single target (which can be useful in some fights, notably Solo stage farming), and Mana Generator is a free .25 Spirit Power UP each turn

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

Since Marisa already caps out her Yang ATK UP and Accuracy, she can look to CRIT ATK or CRIT Accuracy to boost her damage even further. Otherwise, look to Spirit Power to fuel her Breaks. For stat sticks, look to Yang ATK.

Last Word

Whilst the Yang ATK goes somewhat to waste, Ordinary Magician is Marisa’s best option by default due to the Laser DMG UP combined with that. Unmoving Great Library and Behind the Firepower are almost as good, and are perfectly acceptable substitutes, as are future Laser DMG UP cards. Failing that, Crit ATK, Crit ACCURACY are also options, or just a Yang ATK stat stick.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

First, get Syntax.VariableStar() to at least level 3 in order for Marisa to have 2 Spirit Power on turn 1 for farming purposes - after that, it’s personal preference. Syntax.Meteor() gives the most consistent output increase and supports Yang attackers, Syntax.Comet() provides the highest ceiling and supports CRIT attackers, and Syntax.VariableStar() also supports CRIT whilst giving her additional Accuracy to deal with Evasion boosting enemies as well as Spirit Power UP for breaks.

Character Strengths

+Incredible damage output.
+Great support for Yin & CRIT attackers, with decent support for Yang attackers.
+Good Element access, including P0 Fire and Star on her basic shots.
+Can put out a lot of Burn Barriers.

Character Weaknesses

-CRIT DEF support is situational.
-Bad Spirit Power generation on her Shots.
