Kaisei
Expand
Kaisei refers to pleasant weather with clear skies for as far as you can see. The simple clarity is reminiscent of Reimu's honest personality. Reimu is endowed with Wood Phase, free like the wind, and Sun Spirit, from her duty as the Hakurei shrine maiden.

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

Reimu Hakurei's Last Word. This bullet hell attack frees Reimu of all her restrictions and lets her unleash her true power. It used to be a completely outrageous technique, but after Marisa named it, it became something more suitable for just playing around with.

Character Ability

Capable of flight
Expand
If this were just the ability to float in the air, it wouldn't be anything special in Gensokyo, but in Reimu's case, it's more than that. Her ability sets her free from everything, resulting in its ultimate form, Fantasy Nature. When she reaches that point, nothing can defeat Reimu: not threats, not pressure, and not even gravity.
When using Boost, party's Yang DEF 1 level UP (1 turn).
When using Graze, party's Yin DEF 1 level UP (1 turn).
DMG from effective elements 20% DOWN.

Character Analysis

"But remember: If you don't work, you don't eat. You have to help me out too. I'm counting on you!"

The Shrine Maiden of Gensokyo, Reimu Hakurei is something of an enigma. Some see her as a reliable big sister who'll always get the job done. Some see her as a airhead with a serious lack of work ethic and too much pride. Most can agree she's somewhat greedy, but the extent varies. But what everyone can agree upon is that she treats everyone equally and makes sure the balance is kept in Gensokyo. Serving as the series deuteragonist alongside Marisa Kirisame, Reimu's ability to resolve any incident manifests itself in LostWord by being a extremely powerful tank, and a S Tier Friend that all new players get for free.

For farming purposes, Reimu possesses a reasonably powerful All Last Word. Due to being heavily weighted towards Sun, and being strong but not exactly outrageously so, she can run into serious problems against enemies that resist Sun. Steer clear of those though and she'll get the job done. 

For harder fights, Reimu circumvents the usual weaknesses of LostWord tanks. Her damage potential is rather high, due to the immense Hard scaling on her Last Word at 3 Power. She brings a large amount of defensive utility to the team, in the form of a large amount of Yang and Yin DEF and Evasion UP to All Allies alongside between her passive and skills. Her own Focus is somewhat low for a tank, but as Focus is generally considered a somewhat unreliable stat, this is far from crippling. Her damage outside of her Last Word is also somewhat low, which can be a problem in extremely hard fights. Finally, whilst she only has access to Sun, she get 0 Power access to it on both her Sealing Circle, and Persuasion Needle, the later of which is spammable due to being a shot.

Overall, Reimu is a extremely powerful friend, especially since she's free. Whilst she has some problems farming Sun resistant enemies, and her damage can be low outside of her Last Word, her kit is overall very powerful and she is well worth investing into. 

Here are the chances for Reimu's secondary effects, alongside her Hard scaling (per bullet): 

Spirit Sign: Fantasy Seal: Hard 0%/0%/0%/50%/0%/70%

Dream Sign: Sealing Circle: Chance to lower Yang DEF 0%/40%/50%/0%/0%/0%

Chance to lower Yin DEF 0%/40%/50%/0%/0%/0%

Fantasy Nature: Hard 80%/100%/100%/100%/100%/100%

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

For Reimu's second Spell Card, Sealing Circle, anything that boosts Accuracy, or grants Spirit Power will suffice here. Accuracy is generally preferred to ensure a Break will land, but Spirit Power can be useful to fuel the next Spell Card used, or Yang ATK Up to boost her Last Word's power. Reimu's first Spell Card, Spirit Sign: Fantasy Seal, is unusually accurate, so there’s no need for an Accuracy buff for it, but either Spirit Power or Yang ATK will still work. Lastly, for a stat stick, look for Story Cards with Yang ATK.

Last Word

What you socket into Reimu’s Last Word will depend on what content she’s doing. When farming, you’ll want to equip it with a Story Card with at least 2 Levels of Accuracy Up, such as Valued Tools of the Trade. When doing hard content, or if Accuracy UP alone can't get the job done, the unusually high Accuracy of the Last Word means you favor damage instead. The absolute best option is Ofuda DMG UP, with the best option there being A Curious Festival, which does more overall than Miraculous Ofuda assuming both are MLB. If your copy of A Curious Festival is not MLB, you should favor a MLB Miraculous Ofuda instead.

Character Strengths

+ Powerful All Last Word which scales at 3 Power
+ Highly spammable 0 Power Sun on a shot
+ Powerful defensive utility, having large amounts of Yin & Yang DEF, and Evasion Up on both skills and her passive
+ Every new player gets a free copy.

Character Weaknesses

- Very low damage outside of Last Word
- Only has access to Sun
- Low Focus for a tank
