Birukaze
Expand
Birukaze (a Touhou LW original) refers to the irregular and wild wind caused by highrises obstructing the regular air currents. This is the temperament of Sanae, as a Shinto priest to a god of wind. This Sanae's temperament was artificially augmented by science since her original temperament lost its magic.

This temperament is specialized to solely resist Moon Essence.

Character Shots

Sanae Kochiya (Lunar War Oracle)'s Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). She shoots circle-shaped lasers. The Assault Armor Series: γ-Nail is a highly-advanced weapon that can even transform into a laser gun. Lady Suwako cannot help but smile in appreciation of Sanae's graceful laser technique, which equals her own skills with the iron ring.

The Assault Armor Series: ο-Cannon is the ultimate cannon as it can be carried around and fired from the hip. Lady Kanako is especially delighted with the showmanship that rivals her own divine pillar attacks.

Sanae Kochiya (Lunar War Oracle)'s Last Word (a Touhou LW original). She attacks by temporarily removing all of her divine armaments. Her ritual framework is super durable and super high-performance, but the materials required to manufacture it are extremely rare and terribly heavy. So the simple solution according to the Moriya method of disregarding common sense... is to cast aside all your gear whenever you want to move at ultra-high speeds. Of course, Sanae rearms herself and resumes firing once she finishes moving. They are extremely valuable, after all.

Character Ability

Capable of causing miracles (Sealed)
Expand
Sanae Kochiya'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. Sanae Kochiya's Specialized Military Outfit: The design and manufacture of this outfit were largely based on the information provided by the Technology Youkai Network. The two main contributors to this network are Kanako Yasaka's Knowledge Institute, headed by a god of war who is also an engineering revolutionary, and Suwako Moriya's Technological Works, led by a god with a deep connection to iron and steel. All of the specialized military outfits are equipped with barrier chaff. Assault Armor Series: ο-Cannon: This weapon is a remake of Kanako's divine pillars. Sanae usually carries it on her back, but it swings down to her hip with the barrel facing forward whenever she wants to use it. (Sanae specifically requested for it to be designed this way.) It looks similar to Marisa's mini hakkero multi-purpose launcher because they stole a copy of its design and manufactured this weapon on it. They did this so the weapon could shoot a range of different bullets types and to ensure that it would have a lot of firepower. Assault Armor Series: γ-Nail: This weapon is a remake of one of Suwako's divine aspects, the Toad God. It has a built-in super vibration nail that directly utilizes the ritual framework. The weapon is also equipped with the ability to shoot lasers in the shape of iron rings. Assault Armor Series: ν-Railgun: This weapon is based on Sanae's purification rod, but it has been altered to include a few additional features. It is directly linked to the ritual framework and has the power to cause miracles to occur artificially. The gun's fire mechanism uses electromagnetism, so a variety of different bullet types can be shot. Backpack: This backpack is connected to each of her armaments and distributes energy to them. It also houses aiming assistance sensors and various subunits, including the Frog Unit and the Snake Unit. Ritual Framework: This structure contains a network of subatomic substitute prayers and is installed into each and every one of Sanae's armaments. It is exceptionally durable. Each substitute prayer has power equal to the faith of one follower, and the network can simultaneously activate all of them at once. This allows Sanae to artificially activate miracles that would normally require a prolonged ritual.

Character Analysis

B3 Sanae Kochiya was released on January 11th, 2022 in Ultra Festival: Lunar War Oracle.

The sealing of everyone’s power in the world coded as B3 has had a harsh impact on all of the incident resolvers, including Sanae Kochiya. Without the power of miracles from Lady ___ and Lady ___, she was no better than the human she used to be, relying on prayers instead of performing miracles herself. Some of that power must have still remained in her heart, however, as her new set of guns and blasters are able to fill the godly power that was sealed off. With the ability to cause miracles once more and now under the code name Oracle, Sanae once again supports her friends as an amazing S+ Tier Friend.

Sanae does not bring any self-Accuracy support for easy one turn farming, but still holds an amazing amount of raw power. The Slice scaling on her Last Word, Divine Full Armor Purge, is very high and further supported by her own ability to increase Agility by 4 levels before unleashing the attack. As a Yang-only attack, her third skill, Snake Switch Unit, is helpful in increasing her Yang ATK by 3 additional levels, as well as guaranteed Yang ATK UP from the second and third lines of her Last Word. While consistently hitting every bullet alone can be difficult, this oracle definitely has the strength to follow up.
Solo Stage Farms: 2-7-1, 3-3-3

What especially stands out from Sanae’s kit is her ability to grant miracles- both to her allies’ benefit and the opponents’ detriment. This is primarily seen from her CRIT-related effects, including her first spell, Esoterica: Forgotten Ritual, decreasing every enemies’ CRIT DEF by 2 levels and the Solo target by an additional level as well as her second spell, Miracle: Night With Overly Bright Guest Stars, doing the same but for CRIT Evasion. Combined with her first skill, Ritual Framework, lowering CRIT DEF and Evasion by 2 levels and a final CRIT DEF and Evasion debuff by 3 levels from her Last Word for good measure, Sanae’s CRIT support is unrivaled with a total of 8 levels of CRIT DEF and Evasion DOWN on a single opponent. While she herself can benefit from this against any godly presences or dwellers of the Lunar Capital, her supportive capabilities for any CRIT-focused attackers should not be underestimated.

Her support does not end at CRIT debuffs, however. The previously mentioned Yang ATK buff from Snake Switch Unit and Agility buff from Divine Full Armor Purge are applied to the whole party, assisting in the Yang damage and Slice scaling of other Friends. Along with that is an ability shared with the original Sanae: healing. Both her second skill, Frog Resupply Unit, and Snake Switch Unit can heal the entire party by 40% and 70% of her total HP respectively. Divine Full Armor Purge, seeming even more like a miracle the more it does, also heals all allies by 80%. Furthermore, her third passive, Moriya Nexus, will heal herself by 20%, making Oracle an excellent choice for surviving long, difficult fights.

Her breaking potential is impressive as well, centered around a wide assortment of Star and Wood elemental breaks. Her spread shot, Iron Ring Laster, boasts a 0P Star break while her focus shot, Divine Pillar Canon, has a 0P Wood break, making her a very strong breaker on both fronts. Esoterica: Forgotten Ritual has 3 of both Star and Wood breaks and Miracle: Night With Overly Bright Guest Stars still boasts 3 Star breaks at 2 Spirit Power even if every bullet isn’t elemental. Thanks to the Spirit Power increase from all of her skills, accessing these breaks is made more convenient. She can even break Freeze barriers at 3 Spirit Power with Esoterica: Forgotten Ritual or Divine Full Armor Purge for further breaking utility.

Her damage output is slightly less consistent compared to other meta units that have double scaling in the form of Slice and Hard bullets. But even if her miracles are more supportive and might not be effective right away, Sanae’s new mechanical form does not disappoint. She will do her best to heal, debuff, and shoot down opponents with giant stars and lasers at the same time.

Here is the Slice scaling for all of Oracle's attacks:

Iron Ring Laster: 0%/20%/0%/40%/40%/0%

Divine Pillar Canon: 0%/0%/30%/0%/40%/0%

Esoterica: Forgotten Ritual: 40%/50%/60%/60%/0%/70%

Miracle: Night With Overly Bright Guest Stars: 30%/40%/0%/50%/50%/0%

Divine Full Armor Purge: 80%/80%/100%/125%/125%/150%

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

As Sanae does not have any Accuracy support for herself, one spell card slot can be used to increase Accuracy. Witch of Scarlet Dreams is good for more Spirit Power for her spell cards’ additional breaks or effects, while Ordinary Magician is 3 levels of Yang ATK UP while increasing the Laser power of her spell cards. Otherwise, Yang ATK or Agility stat sticks can be used to increase her Last Word output.

Last Word

A more optimal story card will be released in the future for Oracle, but for now Thunder Beat provides an Energy buff for all of her Last Word’s bullets while also increasing her Wood damage. Star power UP is also a fair choice for this slot, due to the majority of the attack being Star.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Ritual Framework should be leveled up first in order to easily grant Sanae 2 Spirit Power on turn 1, which greatly increases her breaking options or Last Word damage immediately. The other two skills are both rather helpful, although Snake Switch Unit potentially provides more due to giving 3 levels of Yang ATK UP to all allies. Frog Resupply Unit heals everyone even more to support her allies even more, but that’s about it.

Character Strengths

+Large amounts of healing on Last Word and skills
+0P Star and Wood breaks on basic shots|
+Amazing CRIT DEF and Evasion debuffs
+Good Slice scaling values

Character Weaknesses

-Inconsistent damage output due to relying on her own CRIT Accuracy
-Mediocre Killer bullet types
