Луняне (яп. 月人, система Поливанова: цукибито, ромадзи: tsukibito, перевод: лунный народ или яп. 月の民, система Поливанова: цуки-но мин, ромадзи: tsuki no min, перевод: жители луны) — выглядящие как люди разумные существа, живущие на Луне или пришедшие оттуда на Землю. Хотя это понятие обозначает конкретный вид живых существ, оно также может применяться по отношению ко всякому, кто происходит с Луны, к примеру, к божествам или лунным кроликам.


Тысячи лет назад изначальные луняне, а именно лорд Цукуёми и его преданные соратники, такие как Эйрин Ягокоро, прибыли на Луну с Земли. Им удалось сделать это благодаря осознанию того, что мир построен на вероятностях и искусственному повышению вероятности того, что жители Земли могут попасть на Луну.[1] Всё потому, что они хотели сбежать от скверны, наполняющей Землю.[2] Можно предположить, что изначальные лунные жители были в полной мере людьми, поскольку современные луняне напоминают их настолько сильно, что могли бы жить человеческой жизнью на Земле[3], и в «Perfect Memento in Strict Sense» они классифицированы как люди (автор книги, Хиэда-но Акю, кажется, вообще не знает о существовании внеземной жизни, отсюда такая классификация). However, Lunarians are closer in nature to hermits or celestials than normal humans.[4] They naturally live much longer lives, and are even said to live forever; they are not true immortals, however, and may die eventually due to unnatural causes such as accidents or battles. [5] Lunarians also allegedly have superhuman stamina and abilities beyond even youkai of the Earth, and possess some of the most advanced technology that there is. [6]

Supposedly, according to Kaguya Houraisan, the Lunarians are the originators of magic and youkai on Earth, creating youkai in order to regulate the Earth's "filth". [7] However, Yukari Yakumo has an alternate origin of youkai, saying in narrative to herself that it was the moon's dim light which gave birth to the youkai in a manner of speaking, by causing humanity to fear and create legends about them. [8] The two explanations are not entirely mutually exclusive, and may be a result of differing outlooks or parts on the matter. For example, the Lunarians may have purposefully dimmed the moon's light to make humanity's fears create the youkai.

The Lunar Capital appears to have a mix of Chinese and Japanese architecture and dress styles, but the extent of the connection between Lunarians and these cultures is unknown.

  2. Cage in Lunatic Runagate: Third Chapter — "Lord Tsukuyomi took only relatives he had the utmost trust in and moved to the moon." and related text around it.
  3. Cage in Lunatic Runagate: First Chapter - "I decided I would atone for my sin by helping find a place on Earth where she could live an easy life as a human."

  5. Cage in Lunatic Runagate: Third Chapter — "Of course, since the lunar citizens and the moon rabbits aren't immortal, they can die in, for example, accidents or battles. Still, even the citizens of the lunar capital bear just the faintest trace of impurity. Even we may be fated to die some day."
  6. Cage in Lunatic Runagate: Fourth Chapter — "The Lunarians possess highly advanced technology, unyielding stamina and abilities that are far outmatch those of youkai."
  7. Imperishable Night: Scarlet Team's Scenario — "The moon gave many powers to beings of the Earth. Many of them, such as magic, were originally the moon's power". "We of the moon turned some on the Earth to monsters, to regulate their filthiness..." Although "monster" uses different Japanese characters than what's used for "youkai", Kaguya's latter statement appears to be referring to youkai, as she then comments about how the humans sealed them away (Gensokyo's creation and/or the myriad of other ways that humanity sealed or lost the fear of the youkai) and youkai have been reduced to "useless creatures that assault humans in predefined patterns." (spell cards).
  8. Cage in Lunatic Runagate: Fifth Chapter — "Under the dim light of the moon, all sorts of things blanket the Earth in shadows, such as grasses, trees, mountains, rocks and buildings. With light as weak as moonlight, it is impossible to eliminate these shadows. And they are the birthplace of humanity's fears, sometimes creating legends of youkai. In a manner of speaking, the moon gave birth to all youkai."
