Satono Nishida &
Mai Teireida

ZUN

ZUN

二人は摩多羅神に仕える童子です。厳かな場所で踊って賑やかにすることで、魔を遠ざけようとしているのです。しかし、他の人から見れば彼女達こそ魔であり、彼女達の容姿はまさに悪の方に寄せています。

They are the Douji that serve the god Matara-jin. They try to keep demons away by dancing in solemn places and making them lively. But in the eyes of others, they themselves are demons, and their appearances are very much evil.

舞が持っているのは竹で、里乃は茗荷です。それは元ネタにちなんでなのですが、結果狂気じみていて良いと思います。普段、茗荷というと野菜のミョウガを想像しますが、あれは花になる部分です。里乃が持っているのは茎と葉の部分ですね。その結果、二人の持ち物が似てしまったので、服装の色で里乃の方をちょっとミョウガっぽくしてみました。

Mai carries around bamboo, and Satono carries around a stalk of Myoga ginger. This is derived from the girls' source material, and it makes them appear crazy as a result, which I find to be a good thing. Usually, when one thinks of Myoga, they think of the vegetable, but the plant does have a flowering part. Satono specifically carries around its stem and leaves. With that outcome, Satono and Mai's belongings ended up looking similar, so I made Satono look more "Myoga-esque" with the colors of her outfit.

元の摩多羅神二童子の衣装のニュアンスを残しつつエプロンドレスになっているところがたまらないです。設定を考えつつ描いていると表情が難しくて何度も顔を描き直しました。結局何も悩みなどなさそうな感じになりました…。

I find it irresistible that the apron dresses these two girls wear retain the essence of Matara-jin's two Douji. While I was drawing this with the setting in mind, I found it difficult to come up with a facial expression for them, and ended up doing multiple redraws. In the end, I ended up giving them faces that seemed devoid of any worries...

Personality
里乃と舞は、摩多羅隠岐奈に仕える童子。「天空璋」5面に初登場し、成美の背中の扉を通ってやってきた主人公と戦った。当初は隠岐奈から伝えられていた「後任の童子探し」のテストのために戦うが、二度目はリベンジにやってきた主人公を後ろ戸の世界から追い出すために立ちはだかる。

Personality
Satono and Mai are the Douji that serve Okina Matara. First debuting as the stage 5 bosses of Hidden Star in Four Seasons, they had fought back against the heroines, who had entered their domain through the door on Narumi's back. Originally, they had fought as a test of strength in order to "find successors", according to Okina, but the second time they fight, it was to kick the heroine, who had come for revenge against Okina, out of the World of Back Doors.

二人とも元は人間だったが、隠岐奈の部下に選ばれたことから人間以外になってしまった存在で、彼女たちが振るう能力も隠岐奈から授かったもの。人間時の記憶は無くしてしまっているが、性格だけは変わっていないらしい。里乃はおっとり系、舞は竹を割ったようなはっきりした性格だとか。衣装や手にするものもそれぞれ異なり、里乃は茗荷を、舞は竹を持っているほか、舞の一人称が「僕」なのも見分けるポイント。

The two of them were originally human, but their humanity has since been declining after being chosen by Okina to act as her subordinates. The abilities they wield were also given to them by her. They had lost all their memories from when they were human, but it seems that their personalities remain intact. Satono has a gentle personality, while Mai has a straightforward one. Their outfits and the plants they carry also differ from one another; Satono carries Myoga Ginger, while Mai carries around bamboo, and refers to herself in first-person with "boku" ().
