Hare
Expand
Hare (a Touhou LW original) refers to fair weather with few clouds in the sky, as well as non-ordinary occasions or events, such as festivals. This is an apt temperament for the Hakurei shrine maiden who governs the special occasions in Gensokyo. Reimu is endowed with Wood Phase, from her carefree personality, and Sun Essence, because she resolves incidents as a profession.

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.

Info
The Spread Shot of Reimu Hakurei from the world shrouded in scarlet mist. This is the Homing Amulet of that world's Reimu. She shoots miraculous ofuda bullets that home in on her target. Reimu throws the red ofuda, and the blue ofuda are launched from her two red and white Yin-Yang Orbs. Ofuda are the main items used to exorcise spirits and exterminate youkai, so they are a must-have when going out to resolve an incident. What is written on them?

Info
The Focus Shot of Reimu Hakurei from the world shrouded in scarlet mist. This is the Persuasion Needle of that world's Reimu. In this attack, sharp needles are shot targeted at the opponent's acupuncture points. Reimu's two red and white Yin-Yang Orbs fire a rain of needles out in front of her while she herself continues to throw red ofuda like normal. Apparently, youkai lose their will to fight because it feels good when the needles stab into their acupuncture points... But is that really the case?

Bullet Info
A Spell Card of Reimu Hakurei from the world shrouded in scarlet mist (a Touhou LW original). She shoots out youkai-exterminating bullets of light and ofuda. It seems that the Reimu of this world was not able to perfect her Fantasy Seal Spell Card before the incident occurred. But just because it is not perfect, it does not necessarily mean that it is weak. It appears that this Fantasy Seal incorporates aspects similar to the Fantasy Nature Last Word due to its experimental nature and this Reimu's inexperience, making it in some ways more powerful than the perfected version.

Bullet Info
A Spell Card of Reimu Hakurei from the world shrouded in scarlet mist (a Touhou LW original). She seals evil beings with intense radiant light. Reimu does not have a steadfast or well-ordered system for differentiating between good and evil, so perhaps her targets for extermination are just beings that she doesn't particularly like. This Reimu did not complete the development of the Sealing Circle before the incident, but this Spell Card is closer to perfection than the Fantasy Seal.

Bullet Info
The Last Word of Reimu Hakurei from the world shrouded in scarlet mist (a Touhou LW original). Bullets are automatically shot irrespective of Reimu's will. It is thought that our version of Reimu created Fantasy Nature after the events of the Scarlet Mist Incident. However, because the Scarlet Mist Incident has been going on for so long without being resolved in this Reimu's world, it can be assumed that the development of this Experimental Fantasy Seal was different... Though Marisa was still the one who named the attack, making it suitable for battles of bullets.

Character Ability

Capable of flight & capable of manipulating spirit power
Expand
These are the abilities of Reimu Hakurei from the world shrouded in scarlet mist. They are essentially the same as our version of Reimu's abilities. However, this Reimu has not yet managed to resolve the Scarlet Mist Incident. There are two possible explanations for why this incident was not resolved. However, neither has been verified, and an investigation is required to uncover what truly occurred. - Reimu and Marisa are not strong enough for some reason. - Their battle of bullets opponents have gone lunatic for some reason. Reimu is annoyed that she cannot properly hang out her futon to dry because of the dense mist covering Gensokyo. The seasons have been completely thrown out of balance by the stifling humidity and the harsh diffusion of sunlight, which has made Reimu even more grumpy because she cannot enjoy viewing the cherry blossoms or the autumn foliage. So Reimu definitely wants to resolve the incident, but apparently, the perpetrator's bullets are just too strong.
When using Boost, party's Yang ATK 1 level UP (1 turn).
DMG from effective elements 25% DOWN.
DMG from resisted elements 25% DOWN.

Character Analysis

Reimu Hakurei (Scarlet) is the version of Reimu Hakurei which showed up in the first of the Windows era Touhou games, Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. As such, this version of Reimu Hakurei has yet to solve the Scarlet Mist Incident - in which Remilia blanketed Gensokyo with the titular scarlet mist (just so she could go outside in the sun without a parasol!) in the first major incident under the Spell Card rules. She’s still just as competent, if not moreso than her present day counterpart, as an EX Tier Friend. Do note her rating is currently partially based on the incoming Story Card with Chapter 3 Act 3. 

For farming, her powerful All targeting Last Word, Experimental Fantasy Nature, packs a devastating punch. Featuring impressive Hard scaling, and with potent skills to back it up, it’s capable of taking on just about every one-wave event stage. She’s also got a kit well suited to taking on Story Card farms such as Chapter 3 Act 1, though the exact extent of her farming ability isn’t entirely clear yet due to her recent release. Feel free to leave a comment about what stages she’s helped you to farm! 

For harder fights, Reimu’s still got that extremely powerful Last Word, on top of 2 levels of team-wide Yang DEF UP for 3 turns support from her second skill, Tiny Purification Rod, with her first Spell Card, Spirit Sign: Experimental Fantasy Seal, granting the team the same alongside 2 levels of Crit DEF DOWN for 3 turns on one target. Additionally, Divine Power grants her party 2 levels of Accuracy UP for 3 turns, which can be combined with her second Spell Card, Dream Sign: Experimental Sealing Circle, granting the same.  Both Spell Cards also do respectable damage, and the Accuracy UP on Dream Sign: Experimental Sealing Circle is highly useful for the Arena.

For breaks, she has repeatable P0 Solo targeting Wood Breaks from her Spread Shot, Homing Amulet (Scarlet), 4 Wood and 2 Sun Solo targeting Breaks at 3 Spirit Power from her first Spell Card, Spirit Sign: Experimental Fantasy Seal, 1/1/3/4 All targeting Sun Breaks for 0/1/2/3 Spirit Power from her second Spell Card, Dream Sign: Experimental Sealing Circle, and 3 Wood and 3 Sun All targeting Breaks for 3 Spirit Power from her Last Word, Experimental Fantasy Nature (should you choose to use it for Breaks). 

Overall, Reimu’s a not too terribly complicated unit with damage, solid Breaks, and reasonable team support. She does a bit of everything, and pretty well at that. Do note her damage won’t be as high as you might expect from JP estimates until Chapter 3 Act 3 is released, as her Best in Slot Story Card (by a solid margin) is not available.

Homing Amulet (Scarlet): 0%/30%/0%/0%/30%/0%

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

Depending on the content you’re doing and her role, Reimu wants either Yang ATK UP, Spirit Power UP, or Yang DEF UP. Spirit Power UP fulfils dual roles of making her Spell Cards hit harder and give her more access to Breaks, whilst Yang ATK UP and Yang DEF give her an even stronger punch when needed. Look to Yang ATK and Yang DEF for stat sticks, favoring Yang ATK if you can't get both.

Last Word

As Reimu’s best Story Card currently is not out, her best option is Yang ATK Up, with Members of the Yakumo Family being slightly better than other options due to the Yang DEF on it. If you maximize your ATK UP in harder fights, you can look to Wood DMG UP, Yang DEF UP, or Sun DMG UP.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

First, level up both Yin-Yang Orbs and Tiny Purification Rod up to level 6 to ensure she'll have 2 spirit power on turn 1 for farming. Then, get Divine Power to level 10 for the extra Accuracy UP, Yin-Yang Orbs to 10 for the Yang ATK UP, and finally Tiny Purification Rod to 10 for the Yang DEF UP.

Character Strengths

+Very high damage, in farming and hard fights alike
+Solid Breaks, including P0 Solo targeting Wood on her Spread Shot
+Provides Accuracy support

Character Weaknesses

-Doesn’t have quite the scaling of other top tier units for harder fights
-Somewhat reliant on a future Story Card for much of her damage potential
