Element Type Chart

Ranki-ryuu (a Touhou LW original) refers to an unstable vortex of air that forms in the atmosphere. This is an apt temperament for this Seija, an amanojaku who seeks to turn the tables of power.

This Gensokyo is in the midst of an incident Seija started, so in some ways, this is her moment in the spotlight. Her power to bring about unexpected change to Gensokyo is the reverse of the new life temperament, Wood Phase (strong against Water Phase but weak to Metal Phase). Her disposition to disrupt order and bring about chaos is the reverse of the uncooperative temperament, Star Essence (strong against Moon Essence but weak to Sun Essence).

Character Shots

The Spread Shot of Seija Kijin from the world constantly reversing (a Touhou LW original). She calls upon the evil contained within mirrors. Since long ago, people from all around the globe have believed that mirrors contain magic. Perhaps the way they create copies of all who stand before them while flipping left and right led people to view them as entrances to other worlds.

The Focus Shot of Seija Kijin from the world constantly reversing (a Touhou LW original). She lets herself get caught up in the mayhem and goes on a rampage. Incidents are an unusual occurrence but can be considered a type of festival. During an incident, certain actions become acceptable, including participation in riots and fights. That's what a real festival is all about. Luckily, modern political systems allow you to ''fight'' your rivals without spilling blood.

A Spell Card of Seija Kijin from the world constantly reversing. She causes an evil reverse. Good and evil are relative, and the boundary between them can be easily reversed. The categories of good and evil don't exist, with each concept simply being defined as the opposite of the other.

Seija sees many in Gensokyo as evil. That includes its rulers, the self-righteous Myouren Temple and Divine Spirit Mausoleum, the power-hungry Scarlet Devil Mansion and Eientei, and the opportunistic Moriya Shrine and Hakurei Shrine. All that is to say, the entirety of Gensokyo views Seija as evil.

A Spell Card of Seija Kijin from the world constantly reversing. She replaces many things in this attack. Assuming incidents are like festivals, then the festival planner would be Seija. The transaction of power is an important event, and revolutions are bonus events that disregard the rule of law.

Seija surely thought that revolution-style incidents were an innovative and effective method of defiance against those whose rule over Gensokyo is absolute. However, she doesn't know that such incidents haven't occurred in the outside world for a long time, and have been replaced with systematic revolutions where no blood is spilled. In other words, she doesn't know about democracy.

The Last Word of Seija Kijin from the world constantly reversing. She reverses everything in this attack. While her name may contain the symbol for oni, Seija Kijin is an amanojaku, not an oni. That said, it's dangerous to underestimate her.

What are her roots as a youkai, and what value does her ability offer? The more you know about those two things, the more you'll realize that there's a great power lurking within her that cannot be taken lightly. It could be that she's intentionally suppressing that power. Then again, perhaps it's buried so deep that she's unaware of its existence. The latter seems preferable.

Character Ability

Capable of turning over anything
The ability of Seija Kijin from the world constantly reversing (a Touhou LW original). It is essentially the same as our version of Seija's ability.

Seija Kijin's goal is to reverse everything in Gensokyo, including the power structure. According to the historical documents, Seija's Reversal Incident failed. This comes as no surprise, as all incidents must eventually be resolved, but why did she start the incident in the first place? What would the world have looked like had she succeeded? What was the incident really about?

When investigating a prolonged incident, you have to find out how the incident was started and how it should've been resolved. This is because by doing so, you will likely be able to discover the reason for it's prolonging. Seija Kijin plotted to reverse everything in Gensokyo by tricking Shinmyoumaru Sukuna into using an artifact that only inchlings can use. Her motivation for doing so was simple: she's an amanojaku and, therefore, takes pleasure in being hated. Seija figured that many people would get frustrated and annoyed at Gensokyo being reversed and consider it to be an act of evil. The reason she first thought to use Shinmyoumaru's artifact was because she alone wasn't powerful enough to enact her plan. It's unclear what exactly Seija's ability is capable of reversing and to what extent, but it can be safely said that it's not capable of reversing all of Gensokyo.

It's hard to imagine the Reversal Incident being prolonged as, similar to the Spring Snow Incident, it has an innate time limit. The artifact used in the incident―a.k.a, the Miracle Mallet―is a tool imbued with oni magic, so when that magic begins to return, the incident should naturally come to an end. All of the changes the mallet manifested will vanish, resulting in the tsukumogami reverting back to inanimate objects and the weak youkai ending their rampage. But not everything returns to the way it was. A price must be paid for using too much of the mallet's magic, and so its owner, Shinmyoumaru, ends up even smaller than before. What's worrisome is not knowing when the mallet's magic will begin to return. If Seija had known the answer to that question, she most likely wouldn't have started the incident at all. In order to keep the tables of power permanently flipped, it's necessary to never use the power of the Miracle Mallet again.

There are three distinct possibilities that could explain the prolonging of the incident.
1. Seija has some hidden power that she used to reverse Gensokyo herself. (In this case, the power of the mallet was unnecessary or merely supplementary.)
2. Seija knew the true nature of the mallet and found some way to block its magic from returning.
3. Seija started the incident but had nothing to do with its prolongation. (In other words, she was used by the one responsible for the prolonged incidents.)

If 1 is correct, then it's necessary to consider that amanojaku youkai might be a type of fallen god with divine origins. Amanojaku have connections with many gods, such as Hebo, the Chinese river god, but the two that are most commonly known are Amenosagume, who was written about in old Japanese myths, and Amanozako, a powerful evil goddess who was written about in a book from the 18th century. Tengu are said to originate from Amanozako, and it seems Amenosagume has some relation to Sagume Kishin, who Seija referred to as one of her kin. So, in this world, it's plausible that Seija's genes contain some kind of great power.

If 2 is correct, Seija either prepared some tool or method for preventing the magic's return before starting the incident, or perhaps she knew a secret way to use the Miracle Mallet. It's always been strange how only inchlings are able to use the mallet. Since it was originally an oni tool, surely oni are able to use it, too...

If 3 is correct, it would mean the real culprit wasn't Seija but someone else entirely. Perhaps even someone close by. Say, for example...
When inflicted by Barrier Status: Burn or Poison, inflicts the same Barrier Status to target.
DMG to resisted elements 25% UP.
DMG from resisted elements 25% DOWN.

Character Analysis

Seija Kijin (Shining) was released on March 8th 2024 on Prayer “The Character Dealing Double Festival”.  For more up-to-date analysis, be sure to visit the Discord Official Discord Server.

What would happen if the Lost Word incident was reversed using the powers of a contrarian amanojaku? Will we ever see the outcome to a scenario like that one day? Maybe that depends on if Seija Kijin would be able to exact a rebellion against those culprits…although her personality would probably prevent her from doing just that since many others are looking to end this incident already. While the Seija we know has come a long way from a Double Dealing Rebellion to using Impossible Spell Cards, this version of her comes from a realm where Gensokyo is left in a state of seemingly never ending reversal. But was this the doing of Seija, the Miracle Mallet, or a mysterious third party?

A14 Seija Kijin is a Debuff-Class Friend who turns the tables with her debuffs through Yang DEF and CRIT DEF, with slight support, Poison anomaly inflictions and Specular Bullets across the board for the sake of reversal.

As a Debuffer

  • Yang DEF debuffs in her kit, from Skill 2, Spell Card 2 Pre-ATK and Last Word Pre-ATK, as well as in her bullet lines (Spell Card 1, Spell Card 2, Last Word).
  • CRIT DEF debuff on her Last Word Pre-ATK.
  • Accuracy debuff on Skill 1.
  • CRIT Accuracy debuff on Skill 2.

As an Attacker / Supporter

  • Decent Yin ATK stat at 1818.
  • Any bullets with elements resisted against said target gets a 25% boost. (If the enemy resists Wood/Star)
  • Spirit Power boosting for herself with Skill 1 (1.50) and Spell Card 1 Post-ATK (1.00).
  • Slight Yin ATK buffs for herself in a few bullet lines across her kit (Spread Shot, Spell Card 1, Last Word).
  • Yin DEF buffs in various bullet lines in her kit (Spread Shot, Spell Card 1, Spell Card 2, Last Word).
  • CRIT ATK buff for herself with Skill 3 as well as a buff for the team via Last Word Pre-ATK.
  • Yang ATK buff for the team with Skill 3.
  • Agility buffing for the team through the Pre-ATKs of Spell Cards 1 and 2. Also has a few Agility buffs for herself through her Focus Shot.
  • A14 Seija benefits from Hard Scaling, with it going up to 90% in her Last Word.
  • A14 Seija’s Killers include Gensokyo, Musician, Collector, Merchant, Incident Resolver, Shrine Maiden, Magician, Maid, Inchling, Treasure, Statue, Yin-Yang Orb, Youkai, Grassroots Youkai Network, Tsukumogami, Poltergeist, Doll

As a Utility / Breaker

  • Uses only 2 elements in her kit: Wood and Star, with slightly more Wood than Star.
  • When inflicted with Burn or Poison anomalies, those same anomalies are inflicted back onto the inflicter.
  • Has a bit of Poison inflict/break potential. Skill 3 inflicts 2 layers of Poison on all enemies with Spell Card 1’s Pre-ATK inflicting 2 layers of it on a single enemy. These are broken via All-Targeting Focus Shot (2P) and Solo-Targeting Spell Card 1 (2P).
  • Every bullet in A14 Seija’s kit has Specular. In her case, her Yin bullets will target the Yang DEF of her enemies, hence all her Yang DEF debuffs.
  • Takes 25% less damage from Moon and Water elemental bullets.
  • Takes 40% less damage from Humans thanks to Passive 1.

Story Card Recommendations

(Card recommendations last updated on March 08, 2024)

Spell Card

The main buffs A14 Seija will need are Spirit Power, Accuracy, Yin ATK, Yin DEF and in some cases, maybe CRIT ATK. However, Spirit Power and Accuracy are the main ones to focus on. Once those are out of the way, you can look to other options such as doubling down on Yang DEF/CRIT DEF debuffing, support cards (Yang ATK, Spirit Power, etc) and of course, Elemental/Bullet Type boosts, being Light bullet/Wood elemental ones for Spell Card 1, and Normal bullet/Star elemental ones for Spell Card 2.

Last Word

With a Laser Last Word, 4 bullet lines of Wood and 2 bullet lines of Star, A14 Seija’s “worst” pick for her Last Word would have to be Infinity Garden as she “suffers” from a 50% Laser Bullet Boost and a 40% Wood Element Boost. A close second place would be Little Sister and Sweets for that boost in 50% Wood and 45% Laser, as well as the 50% boosts in Laser and Star through Hand in Hand with a Miracle and Night-Splitting Light. Another 50% Laser option would also be Red Hot Polaris.

It’s also worth noting that Lunar Capital Stasis Plan is an option for A14 Seija since she benefits from Yang DEF debuffs. This could also help other Yang Friends further with their own damage.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

“Finally”, Skill number 1, Convenient Magic is A14 Seija’s most ideal skill to level up, since that Spirit Power boost is extremely valuable. Next up will be the 3rd Skill, Hidden Ambitions, as that Yang ATK can benefit Yang Friends, but also benefits from the CRIT ATK buff for herself and the Poison anomalies on enemies. And “firstly”, Skill number 2, Power Reversal can wait since the notable difference is a stage of Yang DEF debuffing on her enemies.

Character Strengths

”Weak” Damage Output Shines Through

”Unsurprisingly” enough, A14 Seija is very capable of dealing a very good amount of damage! Part of this is thanks to her strong range of Killers, including Gensokyo and Youkai, which are only two of many others! As for general damage output, she is also on the stronger side in comparison to other Debuff-Class Friends. This Amanojaku has definitely flipped the script as a damage dealing debuffer!

”Expected” Yang Puzzle Piece

Of course, A14 Seija is a Yin-based Friend who benefits from Yin ATK buffs and such. However, in a similar fashion to her L1 variant, all of her bullet lines have Specular Bullets, making her Yin attacks target the enemy’s Yang DEF! Speaking of which, this rebellious reverser’s kit actually helps Yang Friends a lot with not only her Yang DEF debuffing, but with even a team Yang ATK buff, which she doesn’t benefit from herself, but Yang Friends will!

Rebelemental Consistency

Having 2 elements that A14 Seija can make good use of consistently can help a lot, especially since her Poison anomaly breaking potential isn’t the most impressive. With Wood and Star appearing rather frequently in her kit, it’s safe to say A14 Seija wood benefit against enemies weak to these two elements, but even if these are resisted, they still get a 25% boost in damage so she can still be the star when it comes to elemental distribution.

Character Weaknesses

”High” Amount of Buffs

Whether it’s Accuracy, Yin ATK, Yin DEF or in some cases, CRIT ATK, A14 Seija is definitely lacking in the field of self-sufficiency. However, this is a common theme for other debuffers, albeit in the case of this “selfless” amanojaku, she does have some buffs to work with. Then again, some of those include Yang ATK and Agility which while they are team buffs, doesn’t benefit A14 Seija. Thankfully she does have some bullet lines which help her out in terms of selfish Yin ATK and Yin DEF, and her Skill 3 does help a bit with CRIT ATK. However, the biggest hole to fill is Accuracy, which should be manageable to fix when Story Cards and other team members are involved.
