Mitsumabaru

Posted Nov 29, 2017, 10:00:27 AM

Character of the anime Kamichu.  It's not a much famous series, about a very ordinary girl called Yurie, whom becomes a godess out of the blue. 

Mitsumabaru shows up at the episode 9 (the best one), to ask Yurie to help his friend Yamato to return his origin place. It happens that Yamato is a huge

battleship, that really existed and was sunk during Second World War,  and Mitsumabaru travelled through hell and high water to reach Yurie.  According

to Shintoism, even objects have souls and gods. It's not clear if Mits. is the god of the fishing ships or the ghost of one, but he can teleport himself to any

kind of liquid (incluind sake and hot soups) and shrink to very small sizes.   Too bad that he only shows up in one episode.

    That's a pretty cool power! I'm a bit worried abot drinking a boat if I sip on Sake though O.O!

      Yeah, it actually happened to him. Poor Mitsumabaru got a little drunk when he appeared in a sake glass, and then was almost eaten by Yori when he showed up in her soup. Laughing

      Thanks! He was by far the best thing of the anime, and I thought it was unfair they remained forgotten. Smile
