Secret[edit]

The level's secret Rare Beast Spirit is Haniwa. It is rewarded for defeating the midboss while at least four spirits are on-screen. Once consumed in a Roaring Mode, Haniwa will change the Roaring Mode timeout rewards to:

  • 1 Life Fish;
  • 4 Beast Spirits.

The requirement is not difficult, so this Rare Beast Spirit is worth getting for the extra life piece. However, it's better not to intentionally leave spirits uncollected if you are having trouble managing your current difficulty level; you should focus on staying alive, especially for when you use vertical dodges for the big fairies firing red bullet arcs in the first half of the stage.

Streams of red and blue arrows will be fired. The blue ones are aimed at you, but the red ones are static, and can thus be memorized. On Easy, you can easily perform vertical streaming to shoot Mayumi down quickly.

Same as Easy. The vertical streaming speed-kill will be harder to pull off, so some spell practice is advised for you to get familiar with the static red arrow streams. If you want to stream the pattern at the bottom, keep in mind only the blue arrow streams are aimed at you, so you will have to navigate the red ones as you cutback and re-stream.

Haniwa will spawn, and alternate between shooting aimed blue knives and firing a ring of red knives. Their blue knife attacks will worsen if they are left alive, and worse still, new haniwa will be created regardless of whether any from the previous set are alive. So take the time to shoot down the haniwa.

The haniwa are far more aggressive now, so finding a route for yourself through practice is recommended. One method is to start off directly below Mayumi, then kill the two middle haniwa, then alternate between moving to the left/right and staying in the middle to misdirect the blue knives while shooting down the haniwa at the sides.

Youmu's charge shot can make quick work of the haniwa when they spawn, since they will be grouped together in pairs.

Don't bother shooting down any more horses than necessary - you can just sidestep the arrowhead pillars they toss out, anyway. Focus on defeating Mayumi as fast as possible, since her health is low. Make sure you avoid getting hit by the horses; their hitboxes are quite big.

Same as Normal. With Marisa-Wolf you can defeat Mayumi before having to totally move away from the center if you start at the bottom directly below Mayumi, and minimize your horizontal movements.

This spell is a mix of the gimmicks from Spells 1, 2, and 3. The red arrows are still static, like in Spell 1. Aside from shooting Mayumi, the fencer haniwa should be your main focus, since their attacks worsen over time and they can spawn more and more and overwhelm you, like in Spell 2.

Youmu can make quick work of the groups of haniwa with her charged shot.

Same as Easy. The attacks are far more aggressive now, so you must not neglect taking out the fencer haniwa.

Marisa-Wolf's superior damage allows her to first kill off the two fencers, then speed-kill Mayumi before the attack builds up again.
