Iku Ichirin Nitori Sanae Komachi Yamame

Unlock the sequence of these names. Explanations for your answer would be nice to have too.

First correct answer gets an IH upgrade, normals get to become IP and IP get to beome IM.

Do I lose anything if I participate?
YOU WILL NOT FOOL ME AGAIN.

Whatever.

Ichi(一)rin 1
Ni(二)tori 2
San(三)ae 3
Komachi, associated with death(死). (四) 4
I(一)ku(九) 19

Can't think of anything for Yamame.

Since I'm an IM, it doesn't really matter either way, does it?

** Either [7] or [8]
- 7: Ya - mame (similar to "nana")
- 8: Spiders got 8 legs? I dunno.

Answer #1: 8-9-10.

Why?

Yamame. Ya = 8
Iku. Ku = 9
Sanae and Komachi. 3 x 4 = 12. Minus Nitori. 12 - 2 = 10.

Yeah w/e

======================================
Answer #2: Flying.

Why? I I N S K Y.

I IN SKY.

======================================
Answer #3: Elemental or natural affinities.

Iku + Ichirin = Thunderclouds
Nitori + Sanae = Water and Wind, which oppose each other.
Komachi + Yamame = One lives on the "surface", the other lives underground.

======================================
Answer #4: SIKI K-Y

Make of that what you will.

======================================
Miscellanea:
Working with which games they came from, that's 10.5, 12, 10, 10, 9, and 11 respectively.
As for which stages, that's 5, 3, 3, 5, 8, and 1 respectively. (based on Reimu's experiences, anyway)

Working off those number guesses, I may have hit something.

I(一)ku, 1.
Ichi(一)rin, 1.
Ni(二)tori, 2.
San(三)ae, 3.
Ko(こ -> ご)machi, 5.
Ya(八)mame, 8.

Yep, it's the Fibonacci sequence!  The next number would be 13, which is jyu-san. (十三)  But since I don't know any touhous with that in their name I'll just say it's for Ten Desires.
Life and death are without purpose.  Our attempts to give them one are quite presumptuous of us.  But in the end, we exist, and that is enough.

Current status: Dissuading deliberately choking for imagined fame.

Ooh, grats.
This one was solved pretty fast.

And it's not like I get anything from winning this challenge.
Though, yeah, I wouldn't have gotten the Fibonacci thing.

Y'all gave me a good lead - I probably wouldn't have even started thinking of numbers unless you guys pointed out the obvious ichi-ni-san thing.  I was initially thinking of things to do with their characters :V

Which in turn screws us mere mortals out of participating in these puzzles.
Still fun to watch the back-and-forth, though.
