  • Her stage theme has a distinctive Windows XP balloon hint "pop" around 2:08, which probably got in the recording, as stated in ZUN's Twitter.
  • Like Aya Shameimaru in Mountain of Faith, Minamitsu Murasa doesn't seem to have a gimmick/variation based on the playable character (which is something usual in stage 4 bosses).
  • In addition to that, like Aya, she has a survival spell card (and she doesn't have it on Easy mode).
  • According to fans, she has similarities to Kagome from the anime series "Inuyasha".

 ○4面ボス  水難事故の念縛霊

  村紗 水蜜(むらさ みなみつ)

  種族:舟幽霊
  能力:水難事故を引き起こす程度の能力


  遥か昔、海で舟が転覆して亡くなった人間の霊。
  未練から海を離れることが出来ず、そこに通りかかった舟を転覆させる
  毎日を送っていた。

  彼女は人間から恐れられた。
  人間の恐怖の念が彼女を妖怪に変え、ますます自分の自由な行動が制限
  されるようになった。
  その妖怪は、彼女の名前からムラサと呼ばれた。

  そんなある日、彼女に転機が訪れる。
  彼女の元にムラサを退治して欲しい、と依頼された一人の僧侶がやって
  きたのだ。

  彼女にとっても願ったり叶ったりであった。
  もうただの人間を乗せた舟を沈めても、妖怪としての力(恐怖)は上が
  らないと思っていたからだ。
  その僧侶、聞けば大層名のある僧侶だと言う。そんな僧侶を乗せた舟を
  沈めれば、当然妖怪としての格が上がるだろう。
  それが成功すれば、私を縛る呪われた海から離れて人間を襲う事も出来
  るかも知れない。

  ――数日後、彼女を退治しにやってきた僧侶を乗せた舟が近づいた。
  舟には僧侶の他にも数人の人間が乗っていた。
  彼女はありったけの力で、脅してやろうと思った。
  ありったけの力で、僧侶の法力を破ってやろうと思った。

  しかし彼女の予想が外れ、僧侶は完全に無防備であった。
  ただの人間より手応えが無かったのだ。
  あっという間に舟は沈み、数名の人間は全て海に投げ出された。

  彼女は落胆した。
  こんな手応えの無い相手を倒したって何の自慢にもならない。
  そう思っていた彼女の眼に信じられない光景が映った。

  僧侶は海の上に居た。
  さっき転覆させた舟とは異なる、光り輝く舟に乗っていたのだ。
  しかもその舟は、遥か昔私が乗っていた物であった。

  「貴方はこの舟を探していたのでしょう?
   だから違う舟は全て転覆させてきた」

  僧侶は自分の法力で光の舟を創りだしていたのだ。

  「その舟は……!
   ああ懐かしい……なんで」

  妖怪となった彼女には、剣や矢よりも精神的な攻撃の方が怖かった。
  僧侶はその事を知っていた。

  「私達を乗せてきた舟は、不慮の水難事故で沈んでしまいました。
   私の法力で新しい舟を創りましたが、これは特殊な舟で操れる者が
   居ません」

  僧侶は、水から離れられない私に手をさしのべた。

  「この舟を操るのは貴方です」

  その言葉で、彼女は呪われた海を捨てる事が出来た。

  それから数十年後。
  妖怪を救う白蓮が、人間達に捕らわれ封印されてしまった。
  それと同時に、白蓮に関わる物品も、地底奥深くに埋められてしまった。
  村紗もまた、飛倉と共に埋められてしまったのである。

  まさか間欠泉と共に再び地上に現れる事になるとは、彼女自身も予想し
  ていなかった。
  そして誓う。
  今度は私が白蓮を救う番だ、と。そう、白蓮が生み出した舟に乗って。

○Stage 4 Boss  The Ghost of the Shipwreck

Minamitsu Murasa

Species: ship ghost
Ability: the power to cause shipwrecks

The spirit of a human who fell off a ship and drowned in the distant past; due to her lingering attachment to this world, she was bound to the ocean and spent her days capsizing passing ships.

Humans feared her.
Their fears turned her into a youkai, and over time, people wanted to restrict her ability to move about freely.
People called her Murasa, based on her original name.

And so one day she reached a turning point.
A Buddhist priest who'd been asked to vanquish Murasa appeared.

It was everything she'd wished for, too. She didn't think she could expand her power of fear as a youkai just by sinking ships with normal humans on them anymore. The monk that appeared was apparently very well known. Her status as a youkai would surely rise if she could sink the ship the monk was on. "If I succeed," she thought, "maybe I can even attack a human that could free me from this cursed ocean."

―― A few days later, the ship bearing the monk who'd come to defeat her approached.
There were a few other humans besides the monk on that ship.
She thought she'd use all her strength to threaten them.
She thought she'd use all her strength to destroy the monk's Buddhist powers.

But, contrary to her expectations, the monk was completely defenseless.
She got no response from her beyond that of a normal human.
Before she knew it, the ship was sunk, and all of the people on it were flung into the sea.

This discouraged her.
There was no pride to be taken in defeating someone so powerless.
As she thought that, an unbelievable spectacle unfolded before her.

The monk was floating above the ocean.
"She's riding a shining boat—and it's not the one I just capsized.
In fact, that's the ship that I rode in so long ago."

"You were looking for this ship, right?
That's why you sunk all of those other ships."

The monk had made the shining ship using her own powers.

"That ship ... ... !
Ah, how nostalgic ... ... but why?"

A youkai like her was much more afraid of spiritual attacks than swords or arrows.
The monk knew this well.

"The ship that brought us here was sunk in a shipwreck.
I've used my powers to make a new ship, but this is a very special ship, so there's no one that can captain it."

The monk extended her hand out to me, into the oceans to which I was bound.

"But you can captain this ship."

And with those words, she could leave these cursed oceans behind.

A few hundred years passed.
Byakuren, the youkai saviour, had been captured and sealed by humans.
At the same time, anything related to Byakuren was buried deep beneath the earth.
Murasa, too, had been buried deep beneath the earth with the Tobikura.

She never imagined she would be sent flying back above ground by a geyser.
And so, she made a pledge:
"This time, I'll be the one to save Byakuren. Yes, riding the ship that Byakuren created."
