One Yukkuri Place

Yukkuri Stomach

Posted under General

I have a series of question about a yukkuri stomach,and how they eat,lets begin:

Those "* phrases" are not questions,they are just statements questioning the hole in the logic.

1-How the food that they eat became bean paste that quickly?
*its certainly not stored inside because i belive the food would contamine it the yukkuri.
*I never saw a stomach in any doujin,and when they split by the "eat up easy",no stomach is shown.
*Does yukkuri bean paste act like strangelets? I mean when strangelet contact with matter it turns into more strangelet;certainly not,otherwise the whole thing would be bean paste.

2-how their paste can expire that quick?
*I never saw "food" expire that quickly,so what happens? Does yukkuri have some sort of thing that make their paste expire quickier?;Certainly not either,otherwise who eat it would might feel sick for eating expired food.

3-Water disoves them right? But their bean pastes seem to be very wet,and full of water if you squish it,its only pure water that disoves them?
*Well,this puts a doubt how the yukkuris does not die from the natural amounts of water on their bodies,also how they drink water if they dissolve almost instantly if fall in water,their tongues as far i know has no superior resistence to water whatsoever.

I am very confused...

That's the only answer you need while trying to explain the most unrealistically impossible aspects of Yukkuri Biology.

They are magical constructs, foodstuff golems, unviable monster fauna.

Now about the water disolving thingy (the only question that didn't demmand true logical biology):
First of all they dissolve in pure water like liquids, watery like stuff doesn't work, so watery cream, syrup, filling, etc. won't disolve them, you need water or juices for them to disolve and juices is debatable since some say that orange juice wouldn't disolve them and in some cases it semi disolves thems but also quickly heals them, leading ot a loop of maddening pain.

Second, they don't dissolve instantaneously if they aren't completely soaked and being constantly affected by water (rain, falling on a river without being able to get out, etc.), Yukkuris have like a time limit for them dealing with water, too long on it and too much of it's body getting wet leads to them starting to dissolve, but they can be in the water for a little while, just not too long, SPECIALLY if their whole body is getting wet.

Now thats just disapointing,And about juices,who had the brilliant idea of making them heal in orange juice?

Back to the dissolving part,theres water inside their bodies,they dont dissolve,but when theres too much water they dissolve,they would explode or have holes leaking water,that just odd,since everything was answered,i belive its an QACT

maybe their mister paste cores have a waterproof lining, like how the human stomach has a special lining so it doesn't get dissolved by stomach acid?

Thats make sense,their paste core just appear to be floating on the water.

Like said before:Questions Answered,Close Thread please.

The reason yukkuri dissolve in water is because actual pastries, like bean-paste buns, will dissolve in water, if you leave them there long enough.

Yukkuri are essentially bean-paste buns, and the insides of a bean-paste bun doesn't contain enough water to dissolve the dough used to make them, after all there's a reason its called bean-PASTE and not bean-SOUP.

However, images sometimes seem to portray yukkuri melting faster than a real bean-paste bun would in the same circumstances, thus I have to conclude that its part of the 'universe will bend over backwards if it will cause a yukkuri to be screwed' phenomenon.

Sadly, there's not going to be any explanation for that that doesn't involve heavy use of magic in some way, since matter transmutation on that level is far beyond the limits of our technology, at present.

Well, due to the Law of Conservation of Energy, the energy yukkuri use to move, and do all other actions, has to come from somewhere, right?
So, possibly, the yukkuri are drawing energy out of their paste and that somehow causes it to expire/become stale FAR faster than normal.
Of course, that explanation still smacks of 'magic', but its probably one of the most 'reasonable/realistic' ones.

Orange juice healed the player in Dead Rising (xbox360 game). Yukkuris getting healed comes from that.

You have to remember Yukkuris are parodies of a lot of things, so most of their biology comes down to "magic".

Don't forget to mention that in Japan orange juice is way more sweeter than average orange juice because Japans like it like that, so the logic dictates Sweeter = more Sugar = Good for a "Sweet Foodstuff" based creature.

Is it sweet from sugar or artificial sweetener ?
Frankly some local "juice" and Diet Coke here use too much artificial sweetener it's sickening to drink.

Back to the topic...
What's the limit of this expiration ?
For the yukkuri in general, they can last for years unless involved in accident or getting killed, definitely longer than unfrozen manju.

If you mean it's when they're dead, there's theory that just like their paste core can increase the sweetness of their paste, it can also release the death stench and sort of commands to ruin the paste except when doing Please Eat Up.

It's not that they "make it sweeter", the oranges there are just naturally so much sweeter. You can get fresh squeezed OJ there that literally taste like sugar water because its just so super sweet with very very little sour taste. Taiwan has that sorta same type of orange too, and you can get the same fresh squeezed diabetes inducing OJ there too.

Another thing that's super sweet there too are the japanese yams, those are super delicious.

I thought they were a parody of touhou only,but ok them.

Well,i really don know about that man,i kinda disagree with yukkuris still being able to expire themselfes.
By the way,suffering makes them sweeter,its natural reaction of body,its makes this to simulate the effects of an actual sweet,and calm down the yukkuri.

BTW, what did you mean by expired anyway ?
At least in talks I usually read, it's more like reaching end of their natural life (or maybe slow death through prolonged stress). Death stench and the blackening process is different.

Rotten,expired just food that expired out,check a milk box,you will see the expiring date,but with yukkuris,its said that automatically expired.

Well,i mean rotten like a dead person.

If you mean their yu poo poo, it isn't rotten, it's just "old" or "stale".
In fact I don't think they rot at all unless they are infected by mold or something similar, even when they die they seem to be averagely fine.

Like JIE said, usually they rot in case of mold infection from living in unsanitary environment (sample case: compost family and that anko with Seiga yukkuri).
They might also rot after period they're dead, where they have turned into normal yet grotesque manju, but the stories usually has ended before that.

When they die, they simply emit that uneasy death stench. In stories, human character might detect it like a peculiar sweet smell, but nothing out of ordinary. In other stories, yukkuri might not even detect the death stench if they can't perceive the thing as dead yukkuri (so corpse can be used as feed).
So they don't really rot instantly on death.

Think of yukkuri as manju. Red bean paste buns.

When they eat, new filling is created. Meanwhile, all the paste inside is slowly expiring. The expiration is not uniform.

Eventually, the filling will be old and stale, and released as poop. The manjuu keeps the same volume, or perhaps become bigger because input > output. Think of that's how a yukkuri grows. The skin expands to accomodate more paste.

Well,thats answer one of the questions,but yukkuris dosent grow almost instantly,and assuming that they eat and shit as soon they are born,they proably start to expire as soon they are made in a stalk (because they eat as soon as born and defecate the old paste).

Presumably while on stalk, some of the excrement and nutrient goes through to the mother. Which is why you see a lot of babies dying after you cut off the stalk, and they don't continue growing. But putting the stalk in sugar water supplies enough sugar to act as nutrient... presumably the sugar water will get a bit dirty as well from the excrement.

Another way to look at it is if you want to think of it in the way of pastry making.... think of baby yukkuri on the stalk as unshaped dough, raw ingredients that have not been processed correctly into manjuus. It grows and grows through the paste from the mother, and eventually becomes well formed enough to be a real "pastry", and falls down and becomes baby yukkuri.

As for food right after being born... I think of it as more basic biology. Newborns need nutrients and nurishment... in this case for yukkuris can be explained as needing to expel old paste that accumulated while on stalk.
