Summary

As the shopkeeper NPC, Mitama does not have her own playable campaign. She does show up in a lot of the other girls' campaigns.

Mitama's powers center around strengthening other people, but she is not powerful enough to fight witches herself. Instead, she makes a living by enhancing the magic of the other magical girls in exchange for grief seeds.

Mitama has been shown in multiple side stories to be a horrible cook, and incompetent enough with knives to be a danger to those around her. She appears to be oblivious to this.

Etymology

  • The characters in her last name mean "eight" (八) and "cloud" (雲) respectively.
  • Mitama means "honored soul," it's basically translated "ancestor spirit". Yakumo, meanwhile, is a famous poem like Iroha's name is, said to be literally the first poem in Japanese ever written (by Susanoo himself, no less). Extremely roughly translated, it goes: "From eight rising clouds I build a wondrous eightfold fence in Izumo to contain my divine bride; oh wondrous eightfold fence."
