Hideri Ame
Expand
Hideri Ame (a Touhou LW original) refers to rain that falls when it is still sunny. This is an apt temperament for the gap youkai from the world of eternal summer.

The laws of Phases and Essences completely fell apart, leaving only a tropical island paradise!

Yukari has sunscreen! (Strong against Sun Essence.)
A refreshing drink! (Strong against Fire Phase.)
A swimsuit! (Strong against Water Phase.)
But she also wears jewelry in the water! (Weak to Metal Phase.)

Character Shots

The Spread Shot of Yukari Yakumo from the world delirious with eternal summer (a Touhou LW original). She concentrates water power into a manji shape on top of her beach umbrella, which she spins. If this world's history was the same as our world's, this attack would probably be called ''Fantasy Manji-Parasol.''

Waving beach umbrellas around is dangerous, so do not try to imitate this attack. The Sage of Eternal Summer has undergone special training.

The Focus Shot of Yukari Yakumo from the world delirious with eternal summer (a Touhou LW original). She concentrates water power into a circle shape on top of her beach umbrella, which she then shakes to splash water around. If this world's history was the same as our world's, this attack would probably be called ''Full Moon Umbrella.''

For some reason, the Yukari of this world carries around a beach umbrella instead of a parasol. Beach umbrellas are meant to be placed upright in the sand, not carried around.

A Spell Card of Yukari Yakumo from the world delirious with eternal summer (a Touhou LW original). There is no escape from this attack where there are practically no gaps between sea and sky. If this world's history was the same as our world's, this attack would probably be called ''Border Sign: Boundary of Form and Emptiness.''

When you look at the horizon, there is nothing between the sea and the sky. But you could also say that everything under the sun exists between the sea and the sky. Who wouldn't want to visit a country beyond the sea one day?

A Spell Card of Yukari Yakumo from the world delirious with eternal summer (a Touhou LW original). In this attack, waves become ripples, then become waves once more. If this world's history was the same as our world's, this attack would probably be called ''Border Sign: Boundary of Wave and Particle.''

How much of a calm sea is calm with ripples, and how much is choppy with waves? Or is the sea calm and choppy simultaneously...? This is confusing.

The Last Word of Yukari Yakumo from the world delirious with eternal summer (a Touhou LW original). The tip of Yukari's finger decides the ideal way to enjoy a tropical island. Anyone would want to take a holiday after experiencing this nice warm climate and seeing such a beautiful beach. The Yukari of this world is not the only one who thinks this... Really.

It seems that all the major events of our world's history have also occurred in this world in almost exactly the same way, even though the environment is completely different. How is that possible...?

Character Ability

Capable of manipulating boundaries (Beach)
Expand
The ability of Yukari Yakumo from the world of eternal summer (a Touhou LW original). This ability isn't any different from the Yukari of our world's ability. Except that she simply can't use it in earnest. This world is much too peaceful and relaxing...!

Why is the world where this Yukari lives so warm and flooded with water? That is the first question every visitor to this world asks. However, no one native to this world can offer an answer. They all just say, ''Because that's how it's always been,'' even though it seems that the water has only risen to this level recently.

Even the Yukari Yakumo of this world does not know why this world became different from the others. This is not because she has chosen to enjoy her tropical island lifestyle instead of thinking about it. She genuinely does not know. This means that the change must have occurred before Yukari Yakumo was born. One can only guess as to how long ago exactly... but it was probably during the Age of the Gods.

The Age of the Gods was a period of time when gods lived among humans, and all things existed due to the mysterious workings of these gods. There was also an earlier age before humans, where only gods existed. What kind of event in such an age could cause a world like this one to take form? And when exactly did that event occur? Did it happen in the Neogene period? The Paleogene? The Cretaceous? The Jurassic? Even the event associated with the K-Pg boundary could not cause such a radical change to form a world such as this. No, maybe it is the opposite... Did this world turn out this way because something did not occur?
Immune to Barrier Status: Poison & Blind. When attacked with Poison or Blind, recovers 5% of own HP.
When using Boost, party's Yang ATK 1 level UP (1 turn).
When using Graze, party's CRIT ATK 1 level UP (1 turn).
DMG from effective elements 30% DOWN.

Character Analysis

C3 Yukari Yakumo was released on August 5th, 2022 in Epic Prayer: Boundary of Sand and Sea.

Yukari performs phenomenally at farming. With her Last Word, Profound Bullet Barrier - Water, Currents, Foam, and Bubbles, she can deal a great amount of damage while providing utility to help farm more challenging stages. Combined with her buffs from her ability and skills, Yukari can farm nearly every relevant story card stage to date. 

Yukari contributes greatly in challenging content through her utility, healing, and incredibly damage output. Her most notable utility comes through her skills, with her 2nd skill, Gap Hammock, she provides the team with 3 levels of CRIT ATK and Yang ATK for 4 turns, while providing herself with 1.25 P. Combined with her 1st skill, Triple Service, she can cleanse any debuff or bind inflicted on the party, heal them for a substantial amount, and provide herself with 0.75 P, which allows her to reach 3P on her first turn. Her 3rd skill, Blue Hawaii, gives utility by utility not only removing another debuff or bind from the party, but also healing 2 barrier anomalies and providing 2 barriers. While the barrier anomaly heals may be useful for a fair majority of characters, be aware that this may come at a detriment to friends that benefit from self-inflicted anomalies. Thanks to her ability, Capable of manipulating boundaries (Beach), Yukari provides the team yang atk on boost and crit atk on graze, further increasing team damage output.

Yukari’s spell cards are as complex as she is.  For example, her 1st Spell Card, Border Sign: Boundary of Sea and Sky, provides the party with 2 levels of Yang ATK and 3 levels of Yang DEF for 3 turns. This spell card also heals 3 barrier anomalie. This spell card also provides a total of 2 levels of Accuracy for 2 turns, 3 levels of CRIT ATK, and inflicts 3 layers of Freeze for 3 turns. Her 2nd Spell Card, Border Sign: Boundary of Waves and Ripples, gives her 3 levels of Yang DEF and Accuracy for 4 turns (to a maximum of 6 Yang DEF from bullet line 100% effects at 3 boosts) while also restoring barriers for the party. Finally, her Last Word gives the team 2 levels of Yang ATK for 4 turns while also inflicting the enemy with 2 levels of Yang DEF down for 4 turns, fully healing the team, removing a debuff or bind, and reducing water damage taken by 50%.

For barrier breaking, Yukari has an emphasis on Sun and Water breaks with a bias towards Water. With a P0 Water and Sun break on her focus and spread shots respectively, Yukari has a 3/3 spread of Water and Sun on both her spell cards. She can also break freeze anomalies with her spread shot, 2nd Spell Card, and Last Word, as these all have thawing in their bullet lines. Alternatively, you can also use a mix of her focus shot and a 1 boost spread shot to infinitely break barriers from one enemy. Finally, her Last Word breaks 6 barriers weak to Water elemental attacks.

While she dons a swimsuit to relax, make no mistake. Yukari holds up with the best of the bunch. With a great mix of utility, damage, and barrier breaks, sit back and relax with Yukari (while she pretends to be younger than she is).

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

For both of her spell cards, Yukari uses P cards like The Witch of Scarlet Dreams well for barrier breaks in addition to her in-line effects. On her 1st Spell Card, Yukari can make use of Laser bullet cards like Occult Circle or Ordinary Magician. Her 2nd Spell Card, on the other hand, can make use of liquid bullet boosts like Frozen-Over Gensokyo or Tropico Fantasia! Finally, to help augment her Last Word’s damage, opt for Yang ATK or Yang DEF filler, preferring ones with both.

Last Word

Nothing beats Tropico Fantasia! for Yukari in terms of setup damage. However, there will come another story card which can come close in terms of setup and is slightly better for turn 1 damage. For alternatives, cards like My Favorites, which provide a good amount of Water bullet boost, and Frozen-Over Gensokyo, which provide a good amount of Liquid bullet boost, are all good options.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Her 2nd skill, Gap Hammock, should ideally be leveled first as this provides her with the most offensive power for both herself and the party. Her 1st skill, Triple Service, should also be a priority to level, as this skill allows her to reach 3P on the first turn while giving her a sizable heal and debuff/bind dispel. Finally, her 3rd skill, Blue Hawaii, should be leveled last as this skill is a good deal of utility by itself. The order that you choose to level Yukari’s skills are fairly flexible due to their utility, so they canbe leveled at any order depending on what you want from her.

Character Strengths

+ Abundance in Water and Sun Elemental breaks, including 0P Sun and Water in Spread and Focus Shots.
+ Unrivaled with teamwide HP recovery, Barrier restoration and multiple Bind Cleanses.
+ Also provides valuable offensive utility, such as teamwide Yang ATK, CRIT ATK and Spirit Power.
+ Massive damage output in general, especially with her Last Word.
+ Able to inflict and break Freeze Anomalies.

Character Weaknesses

- No Passives that can mitigate certain Binds or Debuffs
- Freeze Anomaly breaks are Solo-Targeting, barring 3P Last Word.
