Exercise from Hilichurl-hunting might help Sayu grow taller!

Sayu is a four-star Anemo claymore user and a sleep-deprived ninja from the Shuumatsuban, who forever aims to grow a few inches taller. From disguising as a daruma to rolling around in her Elemental Skill, this little ninja is super-fun to play with, especially while exploring vast land areas. If you were lucky enough to pull for Sayu, here's everything you need to prepare to Ascend her.
