Tsugumomo Wiki

Ouhi Oriobana (織小花 央姫, Oriobana Ouhi) is a human-tsukumogami hybrid and the current head priest of the Tsuzura Temple. She changes her name to avoid settling on a true name and was previously known as Ouna Oriobana (織小花 央菜, Oriobana Ouna). The name Ouna Oriobana is retained by her "half body".




Madarai and Oriobana

Oriobana was born to a wig tsukumogami mother and human father. Her mother taught her the custom of "pure naming" in which changes names to avoid settling on a true name.[1] It is suggested that Ouhi and Masuji Madarai were classmates at Tsuzura Temple. Ouhi's "first time" was at the age of twenty-one as an exorcist cadet, during spring in a ruined temple with a phallus formed from Ouna's hair.[2]

After Kanaka Kaitani's family were killed by an aberration, Ouhi, going by the name Ouna at the time, introduced herself to Kanaka and invited her to Tsuzura Temple to live at their orphanage and become an exorcist. Kanaka accepted her invitation and began her training to become an exorcist. Ouhi showed a favoritism towards Kanaka resulting in Kanaka being bullied by some other student. When informed of the bullying and Kanaka's poor performance, Shizutsuki suggested they have Kanaka leave next term. Ouhi explain that during the attack that killed Kanaka's family, Kanaka herself was reported to have easily outmaneuver the Kazenbou. Instead of having Kanaka quit, she along with Hiyori Higashina, Kusumi Kuzusumi, Aruko Abataya and Sumire Suzutani were chosen to take their exorcist exams, allowing to choose their tsugumomo. Kanaka arrived late to choosing their partner and ended up with Kiriha.[3] Ouhi would watch the girls spar with each other before they left for the final exam, dealing with a real aberration.[4] Takigi Tagusari and Shizutsuki later report the events of the final exam to Ouhi, detailing how they were attacked by the same Kazenbou that had killed Kanaka's family and how Kanaka killed it with ease, sparking a drastic change in Kanaka's personality from an emotionless girl to an energetic fighter.[5]

Later in her life, Kanaka would request to be appointed the exorcist for Kamioka. Ouhi allows her and Kiriha permission to go to Kamioka but in order for them to become the area's official exorcist, they must persuade the currently appointed exorcist, Shinkurou Shishizaki.[6] After Kanaka had officially been appointed exorcist of Kamioka, Ouhi came to visit Kukuri's shrine to offer an apology for the trouble they caused. At the shrine Ouhi is surprised to find Kanaka and Kiriha living there as well. Ouhi does not initially recognize Kukuri as Kanaka forces her to wear revealing clothes and degrades her. Ouhi hits Kanaka and Kirha on the heads and deeply apologizes to Kukuri for their disrespect towards her. Ouhi gives Kukuri mizuyokan as an apology for the trouble caused and gives Kanaka a middle school uniform so she can continue her education.[7]

At some point in time, Ouhi trained Shiori Shioiori as an exorcist from a young age.[8] Shiori eventually grew to resent Ouhi, finding her praising encouragement to be condescending.[9]


Memories of Kanaka Arc

Ouhi along with a team of exorcists from Tsuzura Temple temple arrive at the aftermath of the battle between, Kukuri, Mayoiga and Kanaka Kagami. Their team gather the Mayoiga tsugumomo and Ouhi speaks with a projection of Saori who explains what transpired.[10]

Three days later, Kazuya Kagami awakens, and Ouhi and Bakura visit to speak with him about the aftermath of the battle, including the death of Kukuri and and showing the remains of Kiriha. Kazuya is distraught but Ouhi convinces Kazuya that he must be the one to defeat Kanaka, inviting him to receive training at Tsuzura Temple. Before leaving for Tsuzura Temple, Ouhi has Bakura allow the three of them to enter the dream world, using the connecting residual memories with various pillows of the involved parties to recreate the past so they can learn more about Kanaka.[10] After learning of Kanaka's past and Kazuya regaining his memory, Kazuya gains new resolve and determination to defeat Kanaka.[11] After the dream searching is finished, Ouhi and Bakura bathe with Kazuya under the pretense of searching for physical or spiritual differences caused by Kukuri's seal on him being released.[12]

Ouhi splits herself into two, leaving Ouna Oriobana to monitor Kanaka while Ouhi takes Kazuya to Tsuzura Temple.[9]

Tsuzura Temple Arc

Kazuya and Ouhi Captured

Arriving at Tsuzura Temple, Ouhi and Kazuya are met by Takumi and Takano Tagusari at the gates. The two are apprehended and thrown into prison under the orders of Masuji Madarai who has overthrown her as head priest while she was away. Madarai confronts the two in prison, explaining his plans to deal with Kanaka, Kazuya and the Mayoiga tsukumogami. After Madarai leaves, Ouhi explains to Kazuya her backstory and the political situation within the temple.[1] With the help of Kyouka who was left in Kazuya's backpack, The three of them manage to escape. Kazuya is able to defeat the guards unarmed but they are forced to retreat as reinforcements arrive. Takano helps the group get away into an unguarded building.[13] Ouhi has Kazuya perform spiritual intercourse with Kyouka to help her regain power. The group then proceed to rescue Ouhi followers that had been detained by Madarai. After freeing, Shinkurou Shishizaki, Sumire Suzutani and Hiyori Higashina, Ouhi confronts Madarai, challenging him to the Nine Masters Tournament to decide the ruler of the temple. Madarai reluctantly accepts and the group are able to rescue a portion of the captured Mayoiga tsugumomo.[14][15] Akito Ashimine acts as Mayoiga representative and they come to an agreement that the Mayoiga tsukumogami will have a secure place and Tsuzura Temple and be treated as equals if Ouhi regains leadership.[9]

While bathing she is ambushed by Madarai and Kagashi using the incense tsukumogami Hakuenko. The two use Hakuenko to force Ouhi asleep and interrogate her about the whereabouts of the puppet bindings. Ouhi awakes with no recollection of the events.[15] The two would later sneak into Ouhi's room to extract information again. When the shoe tsugumomo Urara and Sarara begin to suffer from a lack of spirit energy, Ouhi has Kazuya perform spiritual intercourse with them. Akito states there are male tsukumogami in need of spirit power as well but Ouhi explains it would not work as the technique relies on the bipolar circulation of the male yang and female yin energies. Instead, Kazuya offers to take up ownership of all the Mayoiga tsugumomo simultaneously.[16]

The contestants for the Nine Masters Tournament are set with Ouhi's opponent being Shiori Shioiori. Ouhi has Sunao Sumeragi enter the tournament under the guise of Fox Mask, concealing her identity with a fox mask.[16]

When Kyouka possesses Kazuya during their training and begins to run sexually rampant, Ouhi lures Kyouka in with the promise of sex before using a charm to undo the possession. Ouhi has Kyouka restrained and lets Kazuya decide how he wished to deal with Kyouka.[17]

Before the tournament, Ouhi speaks with Akito, Chikage and Kyouka about her predictions for the tournament, predicting their victory with only Kazuya, Fox Mask and Takanao losing on their side. Counter to her prediction, Tooru Toganou and Tsuzumi Tsukigase lose their matches prompting Kyouka to berate her. After the two matches she meets with her group to see if anyone had noticed anything suspicious during the match which they did not. Sumire heads to her match, promising to buy time for them to observe carefully.[18] Sumire defeats Taiki Tairaku, using her breasts to distract him. After the match, they discover that Taiki had been using a puppet band to secretly have a second tsukumogami in their battles. Ouhi discusses the revelation with her group as well as discuss their plans for the next battle.[19] Despite their preparation, Hiyori lost her match. After Hiyori awakens, Ouhi meets with her group to inform them that Shinkurou was able to defeat his opponent but was unable to save the captive tsukumogami who was destroyed in battle.[20] Takanao is able to defeat her brother and Ouhi reviews their strategy with the remaining contestants.[21]

With her match next, Ouhi has Ouna return to the temple and fuse back together so she can be at full power. Ouhi fights with Shiori who uses a puppet band on a hairpin tsukumogami to counteract Ouhi's hair based abilities.[9] Ouna berates Ouhi for still treating Shiori as a student, trying to bring out the best in her abilities. Ouna switches place overpowers Shiori before switching back. Just as Shiori admits defeat, a razor tsukumogami emerges from her towards Ouhi, defeating her.[8] The razor shatters and Ouhi realizes Madarai had plotted the attack unbeknownst to Shiori.[2]

Ouhi's defeat

Discussing their plan in the bath, Ouna berates Ouhi for go easy on Shiori at the last moment and punishes her. Ouna deduces that the enemy had used Hakuenko to extract information from Ouna, revealing all their secrets and strategies. With no reason to hide anymore, the have Fox Mask reveal herself as Sunao. Ouna has Kazuya and Sunao perform spiritual intercourse so that Kazuya can transfer his energy to Sunao, Ouna helping them in the matter.[2]

The night before Kazuya's match with Madarai, Ouhi and Chikage discuss their strategies and how Madarai may plan to counter them. Ouhi states that out of the six puppet bands at the temple, three were destroyed meaning Madarai has three remaining for his match. During their match, Madarai's puppet band on Sanjou is destroyed.[22] Madarai uses the remaining puppet bands to have his tsukumogami Chuushingura, transform him in a monstrous amalgamation with the abilities of all the remaining Mayoiga tsukumogami. Kazuya enters a state of pure rage, unknowingly using Domination on Kyouka.[23] Ouhi struggles to recognize what Kazuya is doing but Ouna remembers and tells them. Kazuya exhausts Kyouka, causing the Domination to wear off. As Madarai prepares to finish Kazuya, Kiriha manifests to save Kazuya.[24] Kiriha wraps Kyouka's remains up, passing them to Ouhi stating that if she was able to revive, Kyouka will be able to as well. Kazuya and Kiriha then defeat Madarai, winning the Nine Masters Tournament for Ouhi's faction.[25]

After recovering the remaining Mayoiga tsukumogami from Madarai, they find that they are not waking up. After Kazuya collapses from exhaustion, Ouhi explains to the others that the vessels of their souls were damaged by Madarai too much and their spirit power is leaking out. Ouna states there's only one way to save them. Ouhi visits the imprisoned and deformed Madarai to strike a deal with him. Using his Chuushingura and a puppet binding to empower it, Madarai is able to repair the remaining tsukumogami.[26] Ouhi watches over Kyouka until Kazuya wakes up and rushes to her. Ouhi returns to Madarai alone to fulfill her end of the deal. Though the details of Madarai's request are not revealed to the public, it was documented and told to others that Madarai had himself sent to a regional branch.[26] In reality, despite Madarai's pleas for her to kill him, Ouhi convinces him into allowing Haniya Tatetsuchi to reform his human body. Madarai's new form is that of a little girl which Ouhi mocks him for. Ouhi also reveals that Kagashi had informed her of what Madarai had done to her while she was unconscious, ensuring Madarai she will "repay" him for his actions once he returns to Tsuzura Temple. Madarai is then sent to work for Taguri to repay the cost of having Haniya reform his body.[27]

At some point in time, Ouhi lectures the Mayoiga tsugumomo about the temple's layout, rules and dangers. Ouhi later finds Kyouka wandering about temple grounds and gives her a book of candidates for potential owners.[28]

Finally beginning Kazuya's training, Ouhi assigns Kazuya the task to take care of Frozen Stock #1517, rescuing Mami Mamisaka who is consciously trapped within a book by her amasogi. Ouhi splits herself, having Ouna accompany Kazuya on the task while Ouhi remains at Tsuzura Temple for precaution.[29]

Kazuya's Partners Arc

Shortly Kazuya returned from the novel world, Ouhi and Ouna hear of Kazuya's encounter with a minor monster in town, relating it to similar recently reported incidents in which Kamioka has been epicentre of. They have Arumi use her monthly divination, seeing no change in the situations for the foreseeable future. They tell Arumi about the current state of finding partners for the Mayoiga tsugumomo and who her brother Akito has been paired with.[30]
