Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (18) HP Superbane ★★★☆☆
Atk (20) No Attack IV ★★★★☆
Spd (10) No Spd IV ★★★★★
Def (4) Def Bane ★★☆☆☆
Res (5) Res Bane ★★★☆☆

◯ = Stat gains +4 with a superboon, ✕= Stat goes down by -4 with a superbane, - = No assets or flaws

+Spd/-Def

The best IVs for New Year Takumi are +Spd and -Def. A higher Spd stat allows Takumi to prevent follow-up attacks against him and helps him make follow-up attacks on his own. This boosts both his offensive and survivability capabilities. His low Def is of less importance, so it is safe to take Def as a bane.

New Year Takumi is a ranged physical attacker (range = 2). Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage he deals will be equivalent to his Atk minus the foe's Def stat.

New Year Takumi Strengths

Kagami Mochi+ is the first dagger with a 'Slaying' effect

Kagami Mochi+ possesses the standard effect of dagger weapons inflicting debuffs after combat. In the case of Kagami Mochi+, it inflicts -7 Def/Res on target unit and all foes within 2 spaces of target. It also accelerates Takumi's special trigger by 1 counter. This means that Moonbow will only have a cooldown of 1. This allows for consistent special activations that greatly increase Takumi's damage.

Bowbreaker gives him an edge against bow units

Setsuna is a fierce opponent against bow-wielding units, thanks to his passive skill Bowbreaker 3. Being able to take on bow units, who are very high in number in this game, is a huge advantage for him.

As long as he is at least 50% HP, he makes a guaranteed follow-up attack and bow units cannot score a follow-up attack against him.

Atk/Res Bond Increases Offensive Power

Atk/Res Bond 3 increases New Year Takumi's Atk and Res by +5 if he is adjacent to an ally. Since it is an in-combat buff, it stacks with other combat buffs, so it is good to pair with units that have skills like Atk Tactic 3 or Spur Def 3. Additionally, it does not make him susceptible to the effects of Panic Ploy 3 and Chill Atk 3.

This skill improves upon New Year Takumi's decent Res stat allowing him to be a good match-up against many magic units.

New Year Takumi Weaknesses

Weak against physical attacks

New Year Takumi's Def is only 17 at Lv. 40. This makes him very weak in taking physical attacks. However, he does have a good Spd stat of 34. Be wary of Brave weapons though! As they can still nail 2 hits on Takumi regardless of Spd.

Quotes: Special Triggered

See Special Triggered Quotes
Happy New Year!
Here’s a present!
We’re celebrating my way!
Say hello to a new year!

Quotes: Castle

See Castle Quotes
I must admit, I feel somewhat out of place here. There aren’t many other Heroes wearing a kimono…
And I’m the only one carrying mochi around.
I was celebrating the new year at Castle Shirasagi, unprepared to be summoned out of the blue.
Normally I’d have my Fujin Yumi with me, but…
It’s always so cold at the turn of a new year. Are you warm enough? I wish I had some warm ozoni with me…
Huh? You want to make up some New Year’s fortunes? Fine…
You’ll have good luck if there are at least three Hoshidan Heroes in the plaza.
It’s a new year, so I’ll try to be a little more forthright. I wanted you to know that I respect your tactical capabilities.

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
I’ve been here since the new year’s start. Do you celebrate New Year’s where you’re from?
We have all sorts of traditions in Hoshido.
For instance, we’ll hang decorations resembling the Dawn Dragon facing the sunrise to ward off evil.
We also have many delicious soups we’ll prepare— Hm? Why are you looking at me like that?
Oh, you’d like to learn more about Hoshidan New Year’s traditions?
Well, they’re pretty involved, and explaining them thoroughly will likely take some time…
But as long as you’re OK with that, I’d be glad to tell you whatever you want to know.
I can’t say whether it’s good fortune or bad, but there’s no way of knowing if I’ll ever be able to return home…
So, for as long as I’m here, I’ll continue to chat with you like this. After all, I don’t...dislike you.
So let’s keep working together. Sound good?
