>I think that was me again?
We've really got to stop meeting like this. People will talk.
>Byakuren isn't competent enough to actually pull it off,
Rather than competence, I'd say her bigger issue is her kowtowing to the status quo and general unwillingness to rock the boat at all. (pun intended) It's to the point where, last we heard, Murasa was still drowning people, and other members of the Myouren Temple were causing trouble with little interference from Byakuren. That said, from her dream self's dialogue in AoCF, along with her motive for seeking immortality, it can be assumed that this is due to her being exceptionally dependent on others emotionally.
>Kanako's long term goals are more focused on the outside world.
Her motives are undeniably selfish, but that's true of most of the cast and she's still one of the few influential figures to do anything to actually improve quality of life in Gensokyo.
>As for Hecatia, there really isn't anything anybody could do if she actually wanted something.
She seems to take a more "tourist-like" approach to Gensokyo, although considering how hands-off she is with regards to the Ministry of Right and Wrong, it makes one wonder what she does actually do with her time.
At any rate, a Yukarin for the thread. Even as her No. 1 hater I'll still make my contribution.
