This looks interesting. Some sort of yukkuri torturing display/decoration item?
It's a dehumidifier. Something draws the moisture into the thing and the yukkuris eat the moisture until they get overwhelmed by mold or melt.
You can be comfortable during a humid day too with this "Yukkuri Dehumidifier"!! The operation is simple, just toss in two yukkuris and flip the switch!
The Yukkuri Dehumidifier will suck in the excess moisture from the surrounding air.
"Yu!? Mister moist air can't take it easy!""Mister moist air! Go over there!"
When the water droplets accumulate on their body, they will lick it off each other!! It's cheap and long lasting!
"Take it easy!!! Reimu will lick-lick!!""Yu.... Yuuu...."
If the skin melts or mold begins to grow, then please exchange the yukkuris for new ones.
"yu..... ea.... sy....""Big... sis...."
Sugary saliva feed mold but who will clean mold after finish?
I assume the actual globe/orb thing has anti-mould on it. The text seems to be implying the issue of mould is with the yukkuris used inside it and not the actual product.
I imagine a little orange juice would hold off mold growth.
I don't think it would. OJ seems to cure wounds, not sicknesses. I vaguely remember a comic a while back (pet-store aki maybe?) where his pets got infected by fungus and all they could do was cut it off. Other stories seem to support that as well. (only way to remove fungus is to remove the fungus and the roots itself)
That's why I said hold off mold growth. Orange juice is known for its vitamin C content, witch is a common preservative.If you can keep mold from setting in, there is no need to go through surgery.(An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.)
Also, OJ has sugar in it. Not exactly going to help with mold, that.
I am not even sure mold can even metabolize sugar, let alone increase molds growth rate.
It can, but in a different medium.
Lets say that the koyukkuris absorbed the OJ, right? The mold can grow fast on them, because of the sugar content on them.
They already have sugar in them, that's why they are sweet. Plus there is the vitamin C(already stated) that keeps mold at bay.But I guess I should just leave it to artist discretion.
A lot of it probably depends on whether you go with the "yukkuri metabolize anything that isn't spicy or strongly salty into filling of their own type" definition.
