Midboss nonspell (Takane Yamashiro)[edit]

Angled green bullet lanes depending on enemy position (similar to Satono Nishida's patterns) + 32-way aimed mid-sized bullets
On Hard and below, you can dodge it if you move forward, enter one of the lanes and start slowly going down as you horizontally dodge the mid-sized bullets.
On Lunatic, the green bullet lines are very long, so you'll get cornered if you don't get out quickly enough.
If you have high firepower, you can clear this patterns before the second wave comes.
Clearing this pattern will give you 1 bomb fragment card and 15 money items. Getting hit or using bombs doesn't affect the rewards.

For Easy difficulty:

The key to dodging the bullet spirals is to enter one of the lanes and slowly move down.
Since you'll get cornered at the bottom of the screen if you enter a lane from a low position, you'll have move forward first; however, the mid-sized bullets will get in your way. You can either:

  1. Stay low, dodge the bullet spirals as they come at you almost horizontally, then move up through the mid-sized bullets once a gap opens up
  2. Move forward between the mid-sized bullets before the bullet spirals arrive

If you're not good at precise movement, go with option 2. If you're not good at reading multiple bullet trajectories at the same time, go with option 1. If you're not good at either, use a bomb or an ability card.

Stage section 2[edit]

1. Bonus area

  • Ying-yang orb

2. Fairy area B

  • Sunflower fairies x2 (from top left/right)
  • Fairies (from top corners)
  • Sunflower fairies x3 (from top) They drop 1 life fragment and 2 bomb fragments when defeated. If this part is difficult, use a bomb or some card.

Boss nonspell 1 (Takane Yamashiro)[edit]

The waves are shorter compared to the midboss pattern, so you'd think you're less likely to get cornered... however, there's more mid-sized bullets this time, so moving forward is more difficult.
You'll probably be fine if you stay in the center and dodge horizontally while keeping an eye above and below your character.

Forest Sign "Tree-Veiling Technology" (E/N), Forest Sign "Tree-Veiling Technology" (H), Forest Sign "Extreme Tree-Veiling Technology" (L)[edit]

Intersecting bullet lines coming from left and right at an angle.
Move horizontally to pursue the enemy and move up forward avoiding the bullets if possible.
More bullets will be fired as you time this pattern down, so you want to clear it quickly.
Clearing this pattern will give you 1 bomb fragment card and 15 money items. Getting hit or using bombs doesn't affect the rewards.

Boss nonspell 2 (Takane Yamashiro)[edit]

The green bullets become effectively omnidirectional (on Easy, it's the same amount as the midboss pattern), the amount of mid-sized bullets decreases.
Due to the angle of droplet bullets and positioning of mid-sized bullets, it's easy to dodge with horizontal movement at bottom. You can dodge in this manner if you get cornered at the bottom of screen or if you're using homing attacks like Sanae.

Forest Sign "Innermost Forest Region" (E/N), Forest Sign "Extreme Innermost Forest Region" (H), Forest Sign "True Innermost Forest Region" (L)[edit]

Fires 16-way omnidirectional intersecting bullets (3 on Easy, 7 on Normal, 12 on Hard, 16 on Lunatic). On Hard and above, some of the droplet bullets are replaced by amulets.
The bullets are scattered - look for openings and move forward through them.
Clearing this pattern will give you 1 bomb fragment card and 15 money items. Getting hit or using bombs doesn't affect the rewards.
If you get too close to the boss, she will fire aimed mid-sized bullets.
At the right edge, you don't have to avoid bullets coming from the right; at the left edge, you don't have to avoid bullets coming from the left.

Leaf Skill "Green Spiral" (E/N), Leaf Skill "Green Cyclone" (H), Leaf Skill "Green Tornado" (L)[edit]

Combination of omnidirectional mid-sized bullets and droplet bullets spiraling around them.
Keep in mind the droplet bullets will linger even when the mid-sized bullet leaves the screen.
Mid-sized bullets are fired in a static pattern depending on player positions. Droplet bullet routes are static as well.
It's best not to move too much once you've dodged the first aimed mid-sized bullet and its spiraling droplets.

It's pretty much possible to learn the entire pattern. Once you get used to it, it's the most consistent out of Takane's patterns.
Clearing this pattern will give you 1 bomb fragment card and 20 money items. Getting hit or using bombs doesn't affect the rewards.

For Easy difficulty:

The first wave of mid-sized bullets goes clockwise starting with the bullet aimed at you.
Next wave goes counter-clockwise starting with the bullet aimed at you.
If you position yourself at the bottom slightly to the left of Takane, the area right below here will be empty for a period of time.
