Unlock Description Translation🛈
Default 謎めいた、暗い色の水着を纏う未亡人。




Fan Translation: A mysterious widow clad in a dark-colored swimsuit. The words spilled from her lips are enigmatic,
cold, and foreshadow the creeping bizarreness.
Will anyone survive this summer journey? ―――
In the end, that’s the impression of her outfit.
It’s not like Rider Murasaki Shikibu is the culprit or mastermind of any case.
“A bewitching widow in a black swimsuit”
“A suspicious sailor uniform girl”
“A woman with a Showa idol-style swimsuit”,
the multiple appearances chosen by Murasaki Shikibu for this summer,
all of them are just outfits.
Put it simply, she enjoys assuming this kind of appearances.

In other words
This is

Bond 1 身長/体重:163cm・51kg

属性:中立・善  性別:女性

Fan Translation: Height/Weight: 163 cm, 51 kg Source: Historical fact
Region: Japan
Alignment: Neutral Good  Gender: Female
“Chaldea’s Summer Recommended Books Fair” at the secret library is open.

Bond 2 ○サマーナイトブラックウィドウ:EX



Fan Translation: Summer Night Black Widow: EX A skill highly related to the aspect of her first Ascension.
A widow that suspiciously smiles at summer nights,
AKA a black widow!
It’s an appearance with the motif of a mysterious mistress of a mansion that appears in detective novels, specially the one that is similar to “the culprit”, but it’s not like she is the culprit of any case in particular.
Put it simply she’s just enjoying her cosplay.

Incidentally, Murasaki Shikibu’s awareness of her cosplaying is
apparently weak, so she puts a flustered expression when it’s pointed out.

Bond 3 ○文学乙女(夏):A




Fan Translation: Literary Maiden (Summer): A Summer Murasaki Shikibu is, in particular, an ardent admirer of summer stories.
Everything from sci-fi to historical drama, if it’s connected to summer
she is reading a great variety.
She reads a lot of detective novels and horror stories set in summer as well, and as a result, summer Murasaki Shikibu reacts susceptibly to tricks or horror material.

She more or less understands about films too,
but for some reason she tends to be inclined to horror films from the 80~90s.
(It seems there was a “Teacher” who taught her about horror films at Chaldea)

A skill greatly related to her third Ascension appearance.
As a result of having experienced several old films, summer Murasaki Shikibu
“I see, this is a modern outfit for summer…” Became interested in Japanese Showa idols, especially in their summer outfits.

Bond 4 ○猟奇趣味(夏):C++



Fan Translation: Bizarre Hobby (Summer): C++ A skill highly related to the appearance of her second Ascension.
As a result of having become intimate with detective novels and horror stories, summer Murasaki Shikibu
“I see, this is a modern outfit of summer…” acquired a unique preference for uniforms.

Her appearance in which she has crutches despite not having sprained her leg,
and is bandaged despite not being injured is for that reason.
When meeting someone they would ask “Are you hurt?”, but as a result of Murasaki Shikibu carefully explaining “No, this is…” at that point, eventually she leads the other party to an understanding (I see, so in other words it’s… cosplay…?).

Bond 5 『衣通郎姫・蜘蛛行』

ランク:B 種別:対人宝具
レンジ:1~50 最大捕捉:1人

我が夫子が 来べき宵なり ささがねの
蜘蛛のおこなひ こよひ辞流辞も



Fan Translation: 『Sotoori Hime: Demeanour of the Spider』
Rank: B Type: Anti-Unit
Range: 1~50 Maximum number of targets: 1 person
Sotoori Hime • Kumo no Okonai.
A tanka that admires with feeling. A kind of Summon Noble Phantasm that temporarily manifests an oddity through a tanka that admires Sotoori-hime, who is sometimes counted among the Three Gods of Japanese Poetry.

This is the night My husband will come The little crab
The action of the spider Tonight is manifest

The spider written about in this poem, originally,
should be unrelated to the oddity Tsuchigumo, but….
At the time of its True Name release, one subspecies of Tsuchigumo sealed by her former teacher of Onmyoudou, Abe no Seimei, is summoned at that place, and performs a charging attack. It is thought that, since at the time of the charge, Murasaki Shikibu rides this Tsuchigumo, her Spirit Origin was predestined to become a Rider.

It is said it works really well if the target is a being that knows of love or affection.
If they are a being that doesn’t know of love or affection, it won’t work much.

Fan Translation: As a result of having read every story related to summer, Murasaki Shikibu has become well-informed in detective novels and horror stories, and moreover in horror films to a certain extent.
When summer ends, she should quietly return to the usual librarian Murasaki Shikibu, but…

Unexpectedly, she liked it and may wear it indefinitely.
Of course not as her usual clothes,
But in the interior of the secret library, or in the private area behind the desk, she secretly changes her clothes and enjoys it.
If you see her by chance, try saying “You can make them your usual clothes without restraint”.
She’ll surely be happy.
If you say “You can wear cosplay in front of others without holding back”, you’ll see Murasaki Shikibu denying that it’s cosplay for some reason.
