After every wave, two invisible enemies will spin around Chen, shooting medium sized blue bullets in random directions.

Direction Sign "Kimontonkou"
Owner
Chen
Stage 2 — Lunatic
Spell Card Pattern Description

Editor's ZUN-style Comment
High speed bullets assault you from all sides.
So fast and she won't stay still, so cruel...

Notes[edit]

  1. 1.0 1.1 晴明, pronounced "seiman", can either translate to "pentagram", or to the name of a legendary Japanese shikigami summoner
  2. "Douman-Seiman" are magic words and symbols which are said to derive from Ashiya Douman and Abe no Seimei. The left star mark is seiman, and the right cross stripe is douman.
  3. A daimon (大紋) is a type of large family crest usually displayed during war.
  4. 4.0 4.1 Tianxian: The word 天仙 (Tensen) likely refers to the Chinese goddess of Mount Tai, "Tensen Nyanyan" (pronounced Tianxian Niangniang in Chinese), a known avatar of the bodhisattva Guanyin (Kannon in Japanese). The spell card might also be a pun on the expression "泰山鳴動" (Taishan Meidou lit. Mount Tai Rumbling) in which Taishan (泰山) is replaced with Tensen (天仙)
  5. Idaten: Japanese Buddhist version of the Hindu god Skanda known for his unbelievable speed.
  6. The term Dharmapala (護法/gohou in JP, meaning "religious defense") refers to wrathful gods that protect Buddhist law. A 護法天童 / gohou-tendou (or 護法童子 / gohou-douji) is a spiritual entity that likewise defends Buddhist law; in addition, the term can refer to oni or other such spirits employed as servants by an onmyoudou practitioner.
  7. 7.0 7.1 屍解: becoming an immortal sage with his/her own body after death, or becoming a Xian (仙人).
  8. "Konjin" is one of several direction-governing gods in Onmyoudou and related East Asian divination methods, believed to be particularly malicious and to bring bad luck in whatever direction it resides in. "Kimon" (lit. "demon's gate") refers to the northeast, which likewise is associated with bad luck in Onmyoudou. Konjin was particularly feared when residing in this direction.
  9. Qimen Dunjia, known as "Kimontonkou" in Japanese, is an ancient Chinese divination method. In Romance of the Three Kingdoms, an ancient Chinese war epic, Kong Ming used this style of divination to win many battles.
