Marisa in “Red-White” just doesn’t make much sense to me at all. Even though I’m a big Touhou fan, I’ll pass this figure for sure. (-___-.

——Description from Wiki——

Kirisame Marisa (霧雨 魔理沙)

  • Species: Human
  • Ability: High-powered magic
  • Residence: Forest of Magic

Marisa is the secondary main character of Touhou games 3-12, although she makes her first appearance in the second game (Story of Eastern Wonderland) as an enemy. Marisa is a human magician who lives in a cluttered house in the Forest of Magic. She is friends with Reimu and visits her often, but otherwise is solitary and spends most of her time researching magic. She is also an avid collector stuffing her house with various items, and would go “borrowing” things from others without returning them. She is selfish, sometimes violent, and has a disagreeable manner. Underneath, though, she is honest and a hard worker. This makes it strange that she is friends with Reimu, whose powers are purely from talent while she had to work very hard to get her own to the same level. Her ability is high-level destructive magic. In the games, her attacks are characterized by stars and lasers. Consistent to her “borrowing”, many of her spells are lifted from other characters, such as her signature “Master Spark” which was originally Yuka’s, or her “Nondirectional Laser” attack, which was originally Patchouli’s attack.
