Any notes on the etymology of her name (or that of Toyohime, for that matter)? —Kimiko 08:20, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

Etymology... yes, it can be needed, but I suppose it might be more needed who is the inspiration. That of her is Watatsumi no Tamayori hime, who is the person of Kojiki. It spends us some time to write the information about it, now I will try it. --Masuo64 12:04, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

about her pesonality[edit]

in Inaba of moon and earth she is displayeed as an extremely shy/tsundere character, expecially when her sister shows her errors. could it be added to the fun facts section

Most Hated Character[edit]

Shouldn't it be noted that Yorihime is the most hated Touhou character? Then again, it's probably so obvious that no one needs to put it in... >_> If you go on Pooshlmer alone, you'll see many people who hate her. --98.228.216.234 23:45, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Character popularity should have no place on an informational wikia. You don't come here to learn which characters you should or shouldn't hate, you come here to get information about them. 68.84.74.52 00:22, September 3, 2010 (UTC)
I've seen sometimes maniacs, so-called Bougesshaa (ボウゲッシャー), screwing up Bougetsushou and condemning "Touhou was ended when Bougetsushou was released!", while they eagerly buy doujinshi of Yorihime & Toyohime, complaining "it's a pity so little circles draw them; how cute they are..." There're so many various types of loving characters, so it can't be concluded just from one's view, even if it goes in your world. --masuo64 Talk 06:24, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

Inaba of the Moon and Inaba of the Earth as a reliable reference?[edit]

Is it proper to use that manga as a canonical information? ZUN did not actually wrote any of those stories as far as I know. He only provided background information. If you compare the story style with ZUN's actual written stories, it's already pretty different.

It's stated here that it's a debatable source of canonicity, but it's still a good source because ZUN had involvement. I guess that it's okay to talk about information that comes from IoM&IoE as long as people are aware of its reliability; I've now put information on the Inaba of the Moon and Inaba of the Earth page from said link to describe its reliability. Additionally, this comic can be compared to PMiSS because Akyuu provides her own theories on certain characters that may not be true, hence that this fanbook is also unreliable, but it's again a good source of information.
