Miyoi Okunoda (奥野田 美宵 Okunoda Miyoi) is a Zashiki-warashi working at the Geidontei pub and the main protagonist of Lotus Eaters.

General Information[edit]

Miyoi appears as the main protagonist in Lotus Eaters along with Reimu Hakurei and Marisa Kirisame. She is a zashiki-warashi that resides in Geidontei and possessed the Ibuki Gourd to see the world outside of the bar, attempting parties all over the place.

Personality[edit]

Miyoi is a very emotional individual overall. Primarily, she is upbeat and friendly while working at the pub. However, she has a mischievous side, which is often shown when manipulating memories. She's also known to be easily agitated when a dilemma transpires.

Ability[edit]

Capable of Manipulating Memories

Miyoi can manipulate the memories of anyone as long as they're drunk. So far it's been shown that she can induce hallucinations, plant false memories, and make anyone forget about certain events.[1]

Occupation[edit]

She's the poster girl of Geidontei. This means that she is a representative of the bar. She doesn't seem to actually be the one owning the bar, but is seen delivering the drinks to customers, so she's considered the waitress.

It's unknown how long she's worked there, but It's mentioned by her that she had lived before the bar was called Geidontei and before it had It's current owner after Suika told Miyoi about her possessing the Ibuki Gourd without permission.[2]

Character Design[edit]

Name[edit]

Her first name is Miyoi (美宵), and means "beautiful evening". Her last name, Okunoda (奥野田), might be a reference to the japanese winery of the same name.

Design[edit]

Miyoi has pink hair and green eyes. Her right sidelock is shaped like a hook. She wears a blue hat shaped like a whale and a blue apron with a stylized drawing of a whale. The whale is the symbol of Geidontei. Her shirt is light blue and long-sleeved with crossed ribbons on the chest, the sleeves are usually rolled up when she is working. Her skirt is purple with red and white papers stuck on them, resembling the Ibuki Gourd.

Before she possessed the Ibuki Gourd, she wore a short kimono instead of a shirt and skirt. The kimono had cloud patterns on it

Miyoi's Appearances[edit]

Literature[edit]

Lotus Eaters

Miyoi is introduced reassuring some of Geidontei's customers who were worried about a human abduction that no youkai comes to the pub and offers some sake on the house. At night, she arrives to the Hakurei Shrine to offers some stewed veggies at a party, but in secret, she manipulates the memories of the party attendants by giving them hallucinations of an ancient boar. The next morning, Miyoi meets Reimu and tells her that the human who was missing has been found and is returning to the pub. She then waves her goodbye before stating that she will return the next time a banquet is held. Miyoi returns to the Shrine offering stewed veggies yet again, however she was quickly restrained by Reimu the moment she sees her. She then tells everyone who she is and how she was able to meet Suika and entered the Ibuki Gourd.

Over the course of the story, Miyoi meets Mamizou and Aya and after befriending them, they decided to open Geidontei as a youkai nightclub, naming it the Sanshoku Geidontei.

Relationships[edit]

Sanshoku Geidontei's Regulars[edit]

Throughout Lotus Eaters, Miyoi has befriended a few youkai as her customers. Apart from being good drinking buddies, they also help Miyoi with any dilemmas she faces.

Suika Ibuki

At first, Miyoi moved into the Ibuki Gourd without Suika's permission to be able to see the world outside of Geidontei. Suika is aware of this but lets Miyoi do as she pleased for a while. After she questions Miyoi's motives, they got along quite well and came to an agreement: Suika will let Miyoi stay in the Ibuki Gourd whenever she wants to and, in return, Miyoi will keep Geidontei open late whenever Suika stops by.

Mamizou Futatsuiwa

Miyoi at first met Mamizou on bad terms because Mamizou wanted to evict Miyoi out of Geidontei in threat of revealing her secret thus ruining the pub's image. When she found out that she only did this to open a youkai-only pub after hours with the help of Suika, she was excited to hear that and agree with the terms.

Aya Shameimaru

Aya was planning to expose Miyoi's identity to the public, which frightened the poster girl. After changing her mind, Miyoi was happy to have her as a customer.

Minor Relationships[edit]

Geidontei's Owner

Her relationship with the owner is a mystery. Miyoi tells Marisa that he probably isn't aware of her working there, but Marisa mentions that he talked to her like he was her "grand-daughter", in which Miyoi doesn't respond directly but instead gives off an eerie grin. [3]
