Since numerous characters are available in the game, forming a team can get confusing. Hence, you should try different characters and conclude yourself. Koishi Komeiji (Spontaneous White Beauty) is an obvious choice for many players as she is a complete package. She provides serious damage and is capable of inflicting several status conditions. Sanae Kochiya (Human-Deity Duality) is a supportive powerhouse that is also good for dishing out AoE damage. If you cannot pull top-tier units, Eirin Yagokoro (Eternal) and Kaguya Houraisan (Love Temple of Benevolence and Conscience) are good options for your primary DPS character slot and should be easier to obtain.

On the other hand, Keine Kamishirasawa (Kaiju of Rumors and Speculation) should be the priority if you plan to use characters geared towards defense, as she boasts one of the highest defenses in the game. Yukari Yakumo and Yuyuko Saigyouji (Tiny Ghost Mistress) are also good alternatives if you don’t own Keine Kamishirasawa.
