Not enough sprites for Lyrica I'm afraid. That and Minoo's touhou sprites are a pain to work with (as I experienced with Hina and Yuugi)

Hi yes please consider Momiji.
I don't know anything about Yorihime so I'm curious as to what makes her a boss character.

Momiji and Cirno are definite possibilities.

@ArtistofLegacy: She essentially has the ability to invoke the power of the lunarian gods and channel it through her body, where she was capable of single-handedly defeating Reimu, Marisa, Remilia, and Sakuya all at once. She's canonically the most powerful character in the series according to Zun, to the point where he says he would never include her in any of the games for that very reason. If anyone deserves to be a boss character in THRP, it's her.

Went ahead and trimmed the roster a bit to only include characters that are in the game so far plus the three characters already planned (Sanae, Cirno, and Reisen).

As far as possible new additions to the roster, we're currently looking at the following;

Miko Hakurei
Reimu's noncanon predecessor. She'll be a completely defensive turtling/technical character, waiting for openings in the opponent and punish them accordingly with an array of counters and hard hitting melee attacks.

Mima
Everyone's favorite PC98 character forgotten after 10 main series games. She'll mostly focus on zoning and aerial combat with a flight mechanic to aid her in this endeavor.

Aya Shameimaru
Gensokyo's own news reporter. The third charge character of the roster, Aya's speedy maneuverability will keep opponents at bay.

Youmu Konpaku
The half-ghost gardener and last of the main protagonists to be added to the THRP roster. A speedy melee rushdown character with no projectiles, but dangerous when up close.

So I see you've decided to hold a referendum and given the people a democratic vote on the issue; well, let's just say that I have discounted Aya and Miko, which just so happens to leave me two choices, so who do I pick out of those who remain?

But in all seriousness, I'm really divided over which of these two to pick, as both Youmu and Mima have highly interesting gameplay; Mima's flight mechanic would be unique amongst the THRP roster, but at the same time, THRP doesn't have an 'anime' swordfighter yet (the opposite problem to a certain other fighting game).

In the end though, I have to cast my vote for Mima, because as much as it would be nice to see Youmu, Mima is probably going to be the last of your older characters to see the light of day any time soon, so it would seem logical to get her converted over first rather than starting on something new, heck, ZUN might announce Mima's return to Touhou canon if she wins this poll (and what a well-timed coincidence that would be).

In the end, it ended up being 52% Mima and 48% Youmu for me, so I would still be happy to see Youmu win; let's just hope that, whatever the outcome of the vote, nobody will resign afterwards.

So going to toss in 2 (3) more to the potential candidates for the roster. While looking for possible reps for the more recent Touhou games (namely Ten Desires, Double Dealing Character, and Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom), I figured these might fill in for the absense of characters like Miko and Shinmyoumaru (and Clownpiece for the Ameriboos);

Kagerou Imaizumi
The "lonesome werewolf" from Double Dealing Character. She'll be taking lots of influence from Talbain/Gallon for reasons that should be pretty obvious.

Seiga Kaku (& Yoshika Miyako)
The wicked hermit and her zombie "slave" from Ten Desires. The idea from this actually derives from a Ran & Chen character I was working on a while back, which would focus on a kind of "Master-Slave" type character similar to Carl Clover from Blazblue or even Rosalina & Luma. I always wanted to give it another shot, but felt that these two would be more fitting than Ran & Chen.

Would it be a good idea to implement Suwako Moriya on the list?

Not at this time.

While I haven't based this strictly on the poll that was posted earlier, Youmu will be the next character in line to join THRP's roster.

As a bonus, this may be unprecidented, but we have a second newcomer as well, someone that people have been asking me about ever since Flandre was added;


So yeah, Youmu and Remilia will be joining in the near future.

So now that the vampire, gardener, and werewolf have been confirmed, I think it's time to review the remaining options we have, including a few new faces.

Miko Hakurei
Reimu's noncanon predecessor. She'll be a completely defensive turtling/technical character, waiting for openings in the opponent and punish them accordingly with an array of counters and hard hitting melee attacks.

Mima
Everyone's favorite PC98 character forgotten after 10 main series games. She'll mostly focus on zoning and aerial combat with a flight mechanic to aid her in this endeavor.

Aya Shameimaru
Gensokyo's own news reporter. The third charge character of the roster, Aya's speedy maneuverability will keep opponents at bay.

Seiga Kaku (& Yoshika Miyako)
The wicked hermit and her zombie "slave" from Ten Desires. The idea from this actually derives from a Ran & Chen character I was working on a while back, which would focus on a kind of "Master-Slave" type character similar to Carl Clover from Blazblue or even Rosalina & Luma. I always wanted to give it another shot, but felt that these two would be more fitting than Ran & Chen.

Suika Ibuki
The drunk oni who made her debut as the final boss of Immaterial & Missing Power. While Yuuka may embody the slow bulky grappler archtype, Suika is a bit on the brawler side, with her own arsenal of command grabs at her disposal. Of course, who can forget about her trademark Missing Purple Power spellcard?


In Hisoutensoku, Suwako got to see some action. In THRP, Kanako gets that liberty, leaving poor froggy in the dust. Suwako's return would complete the Moriya trio, along with her awkward movement, pressure game, and strange ability to stand while crouching and crouch while standing, if that even makes sense. She's a wierd one for a goddess isn't she? Will Soku's bottom tier character get to shine for once?

Ichirin Kumoi (& Unzan)
The stylish girl and her JoJo stand nyuudou partner arrive on the scene. Like in HM and ULiL, the two will essentially be a heavy hitting brawler archtype. While Ichirin did have a sort of rage mechanic in HM, this was lost in ULiL. This time around, she'll have a much more fitting unique mechanic involving Unzan, one that might even elevate her to the level of a true "Stardust Crusader".
