Reaction:
After you claim a ring during a [Political] conflict in which this character is participating - resolve that ring's effect.

I find it a little odd that the Crane Champion would have a printed ability manipulating Rings, but whatever.

Seems like a strong investment.

Maybe all the champions manipulate rings now, to emphasize the importance of the elements in the LCG.

The only gripe I have with her is that she is neither Courtier nor Duelist. Otherwise, she's a beast!

Other than attachment to CCG cards, why does she need to be one?

honestly I can understand the courtier part, the duelist though is a bit strange.

I noticed that not much cards (that we know of) require you to have Courtier, so it is not as important as it was.
That she is a student of Toshimoko but isn't a duelist is weird, but as somebody pointed out, neither was the first Hoturi.

She's a "tell-er", not a "show-er"!

I have strong desire to get alternate art promo called Doji Hoturi for her.

I can't stand that gender-bender.

Mechanically I find it hard to believe such expensive characters could be useful in game as presented. It would be the best to keep them for more than one turn and this requires very careful playing around nasty claflict deck removal and rulebook removal known as RoV.

Still she can be quickly farmed to 3 honor which is nice.

You get only 1 honor for character leaving play (if that's what you meant by "farming").
