    I like its expression of self-accomplishment when it reaches the table.

    On land is a bad place for a shell Marisa. It'd probably have relatively normal mobility underwater.

    Tea

    Probably not actually, as apart from the shell it's a normal yukkuri. In post #14728 it says the shell weights it down so much it can't move properly, and underwater it'd be even harder.

    Toawa

    Not necessarily... If the shell material is less dense than water, buoyancy would help. If it has air pockets, it'd help even more...

    Toawa

    Hell, even if it isn't, bouyancy would help somewhat, since you're still displacing a heavier fluid when you're in water than when you're in air.

    Levvy

    Assuming it doesn't dissolve. And considering urine accomplishes that...

    Yukkuri Spark

    ^ Probably because urine is acidic. They can probably live fine under water. Of course, we don't even know if it counts when a yukkuri does it.

    Tea

    Yukkuri urine isn't even that acidic. It's sugar water. And seeing as it still melted in that, it's got no chance under water.

    For all I know it might just be that the shell Marisa stayed in the puddle for too long. Maybe it has a higher tolerance to liquids but isn't immune.

    FJH

    The only yukkuri depicted as perfectly waterproof has been Nitori-types and Murasa-types (and they're both relatively new. Only the hats of aquatic Marisa have been demonstrated to be completely waterproof.

    Shell Marisa have never been consistently portrayed for long enough to build consistent traits (save for the shell and speed concerns).

    Yukkuri Spark

    Tea: They're incredibly fragile, so even something vaguely acidic or spicy might hurt them a lot (or so I think)

    Tea

    That's probably quite correct, but we were talking about how shell dissolved in the urine puddle that elder Marisa sprayed on her... from the stories that have mentioned it, yukkuri urine is basically sugar water or a sweet drink. It can't be the slightest bit acidic, as that would mean the yukkuri would dissolve itself.

    Toawa

    Well, it's not quite correct to say that it can't be the slighest bit acidic; organic chemistry gets interesting, and I'm sure there are some sugars which are acidic when dissolved. Of course, the bigger problem here is the assumption that acidic == dissolves things, which is both an over-simplification, and false in many cases (otherwise we wouldn't be able to hold acid in anything).

    Yukkuri Spark

    I believe that's where we bring in PH scales. Anything under a 7 is technically acidic, even though you need to be around 5 or something to start causing damage to human tissue. Our blood PH isn't allowed to fluctuate a whole lot at all without messing something up (forget the exact number for blood)

    Toawa

    Wikipedia says human blood is 7.35-7.45, so slightly basic... And actually, in terms of damage, I'd think alkali solutions would be a bigger immedeate thread. When it comes to flesh (and other organics), acids burn, bases melt. (This is one way that lye soap works; it is literally melting the top layer of skin off, taking the dirt with it; this is in addition to the lye's contribution to the creation of hydrophilic/phobic molecules, which do most of the cleaning. And of course, a sufficiently high or low pH will melt damn near anything.)

    PostItEase

    I think the reason that the shell Marisa died is because when it jumped off the table it may have been damaged, so when it got peed on the pee got into its paste.

    If she did have any injury, it was probably the weight of the shell made the fall harder and bruised her foot.

    But she didn't need to get piss in her paste or anything because she wet herself and got pissed on and then probably cried herself to sleep so she just naturally melted in the resulting puddle of water, which was what was implied.

    Either that or the puddle melted her foot so that she couldn't move which caused her to melt anyway.

    aozf05

    Ah, I just noticed, in the original Japanese, Shell doesn't say "Put cute Marisa on the table." She just says "Put Marisa on the table." The added "cute" makes her come off as a shithead when she actually isn't.
