Akisame
Expand
Akisame (a Touhou LW original) refers to the long-lasting rains in autumn. This is appropiriate for Shizuha as the long quiet showers make the leaves fall. Shizuha is endowed with Metal Phase, the element of autumn, and Moon Essence, which brings about periodic change.

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

Info
Shizuha Aki's Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). This attack causes leaves to fall and then explode. In Japanese culture, the act of cleaning up fallen leaves by gathering them together and burning them is considered elegant. However, it is not done very often nowadays.

Info
Shizuha Aki's Focus Shot (a Touhou LW original). Falling leaves on the wind are blown forcibly into the targets. In the past, the autumn foliage in the mountains was apparently not as easily accessible as the cherry blossoms in spring. This is probably because autumn is the season when the weather starts to get cold, which makes hiking in the mountains far more dangerous.

Bullet Info
Shizuha Aki's Spell Card. A forest of falling leaves dance on the wind. The large variety in autumn leaf colors is apparently due to the inconsistency of the paint that Shizuha uses. However, the god of the mountain shrine claims that it's because of the difference in the types of leaves and the chlorophyll in them.

Bullet Info
Shizuha Aki's Last Word (a Touhou LW original). This attack involves charging forward toward the targets while riding a turbulent wave of fallen leaves in a banana-shaped boat. Some cultures have myths based on the banana which explain the origin of mortality. These myths involve comparing the perishability of the banana with the everlasting nature of something else. Some myths substitute these items with an older sister and a younger sister.

Character Ability

Capable of controlling the turning of leaves
Expand
Shizuha is the god who controls the turning of leaves. She is in charge of all the trees from the top of the Youkai Mountain to the garden trees in the Human Village. However, it is well known that the leaves don't all turn at once, but start turning from the trees at high altitude to low. This probably means that Shizuha starts at the top of the Youkai Mountain and works her way down to the Human Village, then goes back up. (Minoriko probably does something similar.) The leaves start to fall after they've finished turning, which lowers the spirits of the villagers as they will have to clean the fallen leaves up. This may be what's stopping Shizuha from gaining more followers.
When using Graze, party's Yin DEF 1 level UP (1 turn).

Character Analysis

"I hate it went winter comes around to ruin my hard work, w-wait no not you too!"

Shizuha Aki, Minoriko Aki's older sister, first made an appearance in the series in Mountain of Faith as a stage 1 midboss. Shizuha is the goddess of autumn leaves and has the ability to control the turning of leaves. Together with her sister, Shizuha basically controls the entire season of autumn. In a comedic way, Shizuha doesn't actually use any supernatural powers to turn the leaves of autumn red and rather paints over them which explains the slight color inconsistencies you find in these leaves. She takes great pride in what she does and enjoys showing her work to her sister, as a result of this, Shizuha hates when winter eventually comes. In Touhou LostWord, Shizuha plays the role of a support, and can provide some nice buffs for your team which places her comfortably into B Tier.

For farming Shizuha is okay at best. While her damage alone isn't nearly sufficient enough to farm reliably she does provide team-wide accuracy buffs and P support using her skills which can help your damage dealers rack up that much more damage. However this isn't enough for her to be considered a good farmer by any means.

Like previous mentioned Shizuha has an array of tools to help support her teammates. Shizuha is able to grant her team 0.8 P UP and herself a full 1 P UP at max level, as well as provide team-wide accuracy and dodge support using her second skill. Shizuha is unique in this sense, being the only unit with the ability to grant her entire team with more P. The ability to do so, paired with her team-wide accuracy support is definitely what sets her a part from the average buffer. In addition, Shizuha can grant her team Yin attack, Yin defense, and more dodge support with the rest of her Spell Cards. She can also guarantee an Electrified Barrier using her first Spell Card. Shizuha also has a quite a bit of elements to work with in the form of Metal and Wood. She has 3 Wood breaks on her first Spell Card and 3 Metal breaks on her second Spell Card, all going up 1 in count as her P count goes up. Her Last Word has 2 Wood and 4 Metal, gaining the last 3 metal at P3. 

Like previously mentioned, the ability to provide team-wide P support is Shizuha's greatest trait and makes her quite a reliable support to have handy when you need her.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Shizuha's third skill, Autumn Poem, is priority number one without a doubt. The ability to grand team-wide P support is very useful and you're going to want to max this ability with her ASAP. Next you're going to want to level up Autumn Wind to at least level 8 as the 50% chance to increase 2 levels of accuracy is very helpful. Lastly, Single Leaf should be upgraded to it's max, the extra P for Shizuha helps makes use of her good elemental coverage.

Character Strengths

+Applies an Electrified Barrier on her first Spell Card
