Wow, this Yakumo Yukari GK from the circle “Burivary System” is marvelous! And I think she looks so much better than the original illustration. For sure this is one of the best Touhou GK in the recent events. I like Yukari a lot, beside Yuyuko that I mentioned yesterday, she is my another farovite “Onee-san”
characters in Touhou. I know somebody will not agree, but to me she is the most intelligent and most powerful youkai in Gensokyo. =]

——Description from Wikipedia——

Yakumo Yukari (八雲 紫)

  • Species: Youkai
  • Ability: Manipulation of boundaries
  • Residence: The boundaries of Gensokyo
  • Theme Song: Necrofantasia

Phantasm stage boss, and playable in Touhou 7.5, 8, and 10.5. Yukari is an elder youkai who dwells on the border of Gensokyo, and may predate the existence of the realm itself. A good friend of Yuyuko‘s and an acquaintance of Reimu‘s. She is the self-appointed stewardess of the seal between Gensokyo and the outside world, but doesn’t do a particularly good job of it. Most of the time, she is asleep, leaving all the work to her shikigami Ran and Ran’s shikigami Chen. When she isn’t, she tends to amuse herself by pulling in unprepared humans from the outside world and stranding them in Gensokyo. A very irresponsible youkai. Her calculation and mathematical skills far exceeds that of Ran, being Ran’s master. Her ability is the manipulation of boundaries, and this is in terms of the physical and metaphorical. And such boundaries distinguish her spellcards. Often, though, she just summons her shikigami and various others to create her danmaku for her.
