Meimu (Simp. Chinese: 冥梦, Trad. Chinese: 冥夢, Pinyin: Míng mèng; Japanese: 冥梦 (めいむ) Meimu) is a Chinese fan-made character created by the Chinese artist 淫火啲虫 (Pinyin: Yín huǒ di chóng), who also goes by the nickname AUER. The official/original website for where Meimu was first created is on his own Baidu Space blog.[1]

Character Basis

Meimu is highly based on Reimu Hakurei. When Reimu once again lost on a Touhou Popularity Poll for the last time, AUER decided to create Meimu, possibly because of the poll.

Name

Her name Meimu (冥梦) means "dark dream" is intended to sound a lot like Reimu's. The first hanzi, (Pinyin: míng; Romaji: mei) means "dark or "deep" while (Pinyin: mèng; Romaji: mu) means "dream".

  • Ex Reimu: Many western fans do consist that Meimu is Reimu's "Ex" form. Others sometimes say Meimu to be a dark version of Reimu who is covered in pure evil.
