The New Touhou Character Alternate Interpretation Compendium!:
Master?I am not sure that drinking alcohol is linked to Bishamonten. And I am also not sure that Shou is the type of person who'd lie and claim it was. Of course, I do wonder just how they would react to Byakuren lecturing them. I'd think Murasa and Nazrin would ignore her, but for different reasons, while Shou, Ichirin and Unzan would feel bad and try to repent, to varying degrees of success. Kyouko continues the fight against the man. And then Byakuren beats up Mystia for being a bad influence. This only fuels their passion against the man. (or maybe Kyouko just promises not to perform all of her concerts in the dead of the night after being lectured the first time)

Chaotic LulzyAnd then Miko uses it against Byakuren. "So-called righteous Buddhist monk beats up hard-working stall owner. Are you next? ARE YOU NEXT? You, you in the rib shack. You're next. My Miko powers tell me so. Byakuren will burn down your shack tonight."
The Internet is often fast and horrible.
Baring hearts for yearsCue Miko leading Futo by the rib shack. "Ohmygosh! It's a Quezacoutl!" "Ahhhh! I don't know what that is burn it!"
Master?Yeah, Byakuren can't win. ...Actually, for some reason, Miko doesn't come off as the type of person who'd do that, for some reason. Maybe because it doesn't actually concern her, and it would be a youkai beating up a youkai. And as sneaky as Miko is, for some reason I can't see her resorting to sensationalism to smear her enemies (She has more elegant ways to do that) Although I wouldn't be surprised if Miko didn't have a field day with learning that Byakuren's followers were acting up. EDIT:That reminds me, Futo? She seems cute with her fish out of water, acts like she is from the Asuka period (wait...) thing but she is kinda a jerk. And I don't think that the "burns things she is scared of" will win her or Miko any favors.

Chaotic LulzyThose who throw stones shouldn't live in glass houses where a wicked hermit gave them personal lessons. At this point I think Tojiko is the least bad of the sneaky Taoists and she still helped manipulate a religious war.

It should be noted that the captain is apparently picky about her victims these days. We're not told what her criteria are, but I imagine she goes after bad people
SunshineI still find that horrible. If she can't control herself maybe there is no option but send her to the underground.
Baring hearts for yearsMurasa and Seiga are now arch-rivals. Seiga always seems trapped, doomed to drown, then whoop, wall's gone, seeya. And Murasa follows her into the next room to repeat. She can control herself, or she wouldn't be making choices about who to drown. She's just... not quitting cold turkey, yet. You don't know the thrill of drowning people! Um. I mean. Not that I do, either, of course. >_>.

Master?Yeah, aside from her shady past, Tojiko doesn't really do anything bad or questionable. She is a vengeful spirit who didn't get the memo about being vengeful. Heck, she even isn't mad at Futo for ruining her chance at being an immortal lich thing. Now I think of Tojiko as someone who sees the good in everything. A real optimist. Komachi is a bad person now? Or do you mean the people she directly murders? I guess if she did kill people who had it coming, it'd be easier to swallow, but it doesn't make it less, well, murder. Now I can see Murasa arguing that she can quit murder whenever she wants in response to everyone else saying that about booze (or punk rock in Kyouko's case).

SunshineMurasa not Komachi.
Master?Sorry, got my arrows mixed up. You people post fast! Also, Akyuu remembers everything she has ever heard. It's her power. ...That is a power that is perfect for her role, but I admit, it can also suck.
Akyuu remembers everything she sees. This was directly brought up
Master?Hmm? I thought it was heard. I guess I misread it then. Anyway, same difference. Very useful for her profession. Can suck if she is exposed to the wrong thing. EDIT: In SOPM, Akyuu says she hears. But she does say sees in PMiSS So my mistake. It's probably both.
edited 10th May '12 7:35:17 PM by Otherarrow
Baring hearts for yearsI suspect Akyuu's family is pretty good about keeping her from meeting the wrong sorts. There's probably a thorough screening process before you get to meet her. Or she has to request you by person. Or you're Marisa/Reimu and no one's going to tell them "no".
Master?Well, the Hiedas do appear to be one of the more powerful human families. I think they'd have something like that to protect their star child of the age from harm (physical and mental) that she will never forget (because she is literally unable to.)

In SOPM, Akyuu says she hears. But she does say sees in P Mi SS So my mistake. It's probably both.Hm? Explain this:
Miko: Incidentally, I wear earmuffs so I don't have to hear too much(*9) *9 So that's a way to deal with it, huh. In my case I should get eye masks because I also can't forget anything I see.
Master?Didn't I just say in the part you quoted that she says at different points that it is both sounds and sights that she remembers? Because she says at different points that she remembers everything she hears and everything she sees. I'll admit, I was unaware of the footnote (as it wasn't translated at the time I read the passage), but it only confirms my point that it is both, as she mentions it as both in the same book even.

Baring hearts for yearsI suspect she can remember what she hears as well. Because either she is a very fast writer, able to dictate a full, fast paced, lengthy conversation, while adding footnotes (Well, those may have been added later, I suppose), or she just remembered it all to compile later, just observing and maybe jotting down notes here and here to remind her of how to format the thing later.
Going back, she does say she remember what she hears. So it's probably that she'd need a mask as well, not alone
Master?A full, fast paced conversation that she was involved in at points, no less. I do think she just poured booze and drank tea, and payed attention to the conversation. Maybe she did write a few notes like you said. Maybe she wrote down the foot notes while they were talking. EDIT:Did I really just write that a underage kid was drinking at this thing? I guess there is the excuse of "lol Gensoukyou" but that seems kinda wrong to me.

SunshineAkyuu might look like a child but is as old as the Gensokyo Chronicles. And it's implied that she remember her previous lifes.
Baring hearts for yearsThere's also the excuse of she's got a lot more years of experience due to her reincarnation (though she only keeps memories relevant to the Chronicles between rebirths, as I understand it), so... You also suggested that she was pouring booze and drinking tea...? aka not partaking of the booze (though I can't remember if that was the case before your edit?) I suspect she's allowed to drink, especially around responsible adults like... okay, nevermind that bit. I'm pretty sure we can agree that Akyuu would be a far more responsible drinker than anyone else present bar Byakuren.

eepAkyuu's a bit of a Special Exception to that sort of age limit thing. She's around... Oh, I'd guess 350 years old, discounting time spent dead before coming back. Given how popular and important booze is to

My Persona 4 Expert Run Liveblog! *On Hiatus*
Master?The original was that she was pouring and drinking the booze, until I realized how wrong that is. So I hastily edited it. I want to say that even if she could drink, she didn't so her senses would be alert so she can hear (and thus remember) everything that was going on. Though I do think she'd be more responsible than the others. Also, she's like, what, physically 13ish at this point? Drinking booze can't be good for her frail body.

Baring hearts for yearsAlso, isn't the legal drinking age in Japan 18? or is it 20? Anyway, Akyuu is now 17 or 18. She's one of those few characters who has a set year of birth. Born in July or so of 109, and current year is 127.
