Akibare
Expand
Akibare (a Touhou LW original) refers to the clear skies of autumn. This is an accurate representation of Minoriko's benevolence as the god of harvests. Minoriko is endowed with Metal Phase, the element of autumn, and Star Essence, from her carefree and cheerful personality.

The cold and silent Metal Phase resists Earth Phase, because earth bears metal, but it is weak to Fire Phase, because fire refines metal.

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

Minoriko Aki's Spell Card. This attack unleashes a barrage of bullets in the shape of rice grains. The clouds in the autumn sky are said to be transient. It is unclear whether or not Minoriko's maiden heart is the same. If it is, she may actually be a rather whimsical god.

Bullet Info
Minoriko Aki's Spell Card. This attack emits spear-like laser bullets that look like the ears of a rice plant. Usually, one must pray to Minoriko before the harvest season starts in order to receive a bumper crop from her. This is most likely because she will not be able to improve the growth of the crop unless she is informed early on.

Character Ability

Capable of controlling plentiful harvests
Expand
Minoriko is the god who controls the success and failure of crops in Gensokyo's autumn. Her power is apparently limited to only the crops that are harvested in autumn. Additionally, she has to painstakingly invest her power into each and every plant for it to take effect, meaning she can only use this power on a limited area. The more followers she has, the more crops she has to grow and the busier she gets. She must be an extremely diligent and hardworking god, considering how she goes from field to field during the growing period of spring and summer.
Immune to Barrier Status: Paralyze & Poison.

Character Analysis

“I'm just one amongst the multitudes of gods. There are many more [on Youkai Mountain] just like me.”

Minoriko Aki, the Symbol of Abundance and Plenty, is a fairly simple goddess. Her domain is that of abundant harvest, and alongside her sister Shizuha, controls the season of Fall. Whilst a minor goddess even amongst the gods of harvest, she still has a bit of an ego, and gets rather depressed when the winter comes and her role for the year is over. However don’t counter out just because she’s a minor goddess, because she’s here to farm a bountiful harvest for you as a A Tier Friend

For farming - outside of the fact she’s a literal goddess of the harvest, Minoriko’s primary use is in Full Autoing three wave stages, thanks to her All targeting Spell Cards combined with an All targeting Last Word. She’s not quite as good for event stages though - her Last Word not only deals somewhat low damage, it also has two separate elements at 1 Power, raising the chances that a Resistance will stop her in her tracks. 

For harder fights, Minoriko shines in three areas. First of all, she has rather good access to Metal and Wood - Autumn Sign: The Autumn Sky and a Maiden's Heart gets 1/2/3 Metal Breaks for 0/1/2 Spirit Power, Bumper Crop: Promise of the Wheat God gets 1/2/3 Wood Breaks for 0/1/2 Spirit Power, and her Last Word, Toyosuki's Hainuwele Legend gains 2 Metal and 4 Wood Breaks in total at 3 Spirit Power. Secondly, she can also Break Paralyze and Poison Barriers - the former being a great asset that unfortunately needs to be combined with Paralyze inflicting units, which are much more abundant than other types of Anomaly barriers, and the later allowing her to combine with Medicine to overcome Barrier Anomaly Recovery, since Medicine can use a Poison inflicting Spell Card on the same turn that Minoriko Breaks them, preventing the enemy from recovering. Lastly, she provides the party with a decent amount of support between her skills Eager Wait and Prayer for Abundance, alongside the healing from Bumper Crop: Promise of the Wheat God and the uncommon  and coveted Power Link.

 

Minoriko is however a minor goddess of the harvest, so it only makes sense she’s lacking in an area. That being damage - she just doesn’t do a whole lot of it, between her lack of ATK UP, mixed scaling on her Last Word, and her Last Word being 3-1-1, meaning it can’t scale very well. 

Still, her strengths are abundant and plenty. Give her a little praise and prayer, and she’ll work as hard as any other god for you, if not harder.

The success rate of Minoriko’s secondary effects, alongside her Hard scaling, are as follows:

Autumn Sign: The Autumn Sky and a Maiden’s Heart 

Chance for own Focus DOWN 0%/40%/0%/40%/0%/0%

Chance for Yin ATK UP 0%/0%/40%/0%/40%/0%

Bumper Crop: Promise of the Wheat God Chance for Accuracy UP 0%/40%/0%/40%/0%/0%

Chance for Evasion UP 0%/0%/40%/0%/40%/0%

Toyosuki's Hainuwele Legend: Hard 0%/0%/0%/0%/50%/60%

Chance for Yang ATK UP 0%/0%/50%/0%/0%/0%

Chance for Yin ATK UP 0%/0%/0%/50%/0%/0%

Chance for Stun 0%/0%/0%/0%/0%/30%

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

Since Minoriko's primary job is to Break with her Spell Cards, anything that grants Spirit Power UP is your best bet. Otherwise, should you need her to do damage, alternate between Story Cards which provide Yin or Yang ATK UP in order to get the most damage out of her Last Word as possible, favoring Yin ATK UP. For stat sticks, look to cards that boost both Yin and Yang ATK, favoring Yin.

Last Word

Since Minoriko doesn't do a ton of damage anyway and her Last Word being mixed means she doesn't benefit as much from ATK UP, she'll pretty much always run Accuracy UP for her Story Card. Should you bring along a teammate who provides Accuracy, favor a Story Card which provides Yin ATK UP.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Eager Wait is Minoriko’s best scaling skill, and should be prioritized first. After that, if you’re okay with a bit of RNG, bring Prayer for Abundance up to level 9 - the extra chance for a Barrier can be used to great effect if you’re patient, but level 10 only gives a 1 turn cut to cooldown which is rarely useful. Lastly, Autumn Enshrining Day can be brought up to level 6 relatively easily for 2 Levels of Yin DEF UP rather than 1, but additional levels can wait until you’re out of other people to train as it will rarely be worth the time it takes to train it up.

Character Strengths

+Both Spell Cards as well as her Last Word are All targeting, making her fantastic for three wave Full Auto
+Possesses the rare ability to All Break Paralyze Barriers
+Can partner with Medicine to brute force past fights with Abnormal Barrier Recovery
+Slightly above average access to both Metal and Wood
+Solid healing and Barrier recovery support
+Has Power Link, which is always great

Character Weaknesses

-Low damage & mixed scaling
