The place where it all began. Reimu travels to another world to defend her shrine.
Baby girl... baby.
One of the very first Touhou characters was genderfluid. Who'dathunk it? The large orb transforms into both the masculine figure and the feminine one.
In the heart of the lightning, the figure of a girl appears...
It's not known whether YuugenMagan is controlled by the girl or the Evil Eyes. Or... both?
Mima seems more dark and troubled in her first appearance. She even has a knife!
As with many Touhou 1 things, this is never truly explained.
On her sprite, Elis has a red star on her cheek if you look closely. I-is this... a JoJo reference...? (gasp)
She's probably a vampire, since she transforms into a very cute bat sometimes!
Known as the "Hellish Moon", I drew the orb in her hands as an actual moon.
In the ending credits, she is shown "leaning" out of the disc that she's confined in.
The Angel of Death. Their gender is highly disputed, since Sariel in mythology is supposedly male. I don't feel like it's possible for humans to perceive angel genders, and that attempting to do so would fragment one's own sanity.
Big! Fluffy!! Wings~!!!
The Astral Knight of Hell. Sometimes, her colours change to green instead of red! Also, how come Sariel gets to have a final form but Konngara doesn't? Clearly, ZUN needs to patch it. (that's a joke please don't take it seriously ohno)
It was really fun drawing her dark flames. Such a cool design, for someone who never appeared again!
Great work, Reimu! You unlocked one wish!
Reimu's Yin-Yang Orb transforms into this fairy in the Makai Route good ending. It is very small.
Oh no! This joyous creature simply can't be stopped!
Reimu's Yin-Yang Orb transforms into this jolly creature in the Hell Route good ending. It is very exuberant!
