Kuon - “Hasizoroe”
In Japan, hasizoroe (or hashizoroe) is also known as ohashizome and refers to a child’s first meal fed by chopsticks (hashi).
A rough translation of part of the song by katsuya2…
Through a bamboo blind, I see a woman and a bamboo clothes box.
I hear a sound of a hand drum.
Scattered blood colors a carpet red-hot.
Silk thread spins a soul of a sham.
A bamboo clothes box is tied up with a string and wavers calmly.
It resembles the scene that a pleased baby shakes a body at the time of
A threatening ceremony to continue earnestly.

KUON: Abe no Seimei -Kuon Phase-
Seimei is a royal exorcist. When the strange occurrences began at the manor, Lord Fujiwara sent for only the top exorcists to purge his household. Doman, once a royal exorcist himself, is quite familiar with Seimei and holds a massive amount of distaste for her [/understatement]. She fights with a long spear, along with spell cards, including two high powered guardians.
Fun Fact: There was a real Abe no Seimei back in the feudal days of Japan and he is generally considered to be the top onmyōji in Japanese history. The folklore and legends surrounding him are numerous, (you could call him the Merlin of Japan <3). So, that being said, I think it’s pretty awesome that the game developers chose to make their Abe no Seimei a woman.
KUON: Utsuki -Yin Phase-
Daughter of Doman and younger sister to Kureha. Utsuki lives her life in isolation at her father’s shrine, separated from the outside world and other people. She and her sister become uneasy when their father does not return from Fujiwara manor and decide to descend the mountain to look for him.
Fights with a blade and spell cards. Loves playing sugoroku with her sister and tending to the irises in the garden.
