      ….can you answer how that thing is suppose to be a worm because I don’t see it

      • Merlin

        Not literally a worm, but performing the function of the curse.

      • The concept is a jar where creatures are trapped and must survive by killing and eating each other, which means this spirit is the final product of whatever got sucked into this “jar”.

          …okay stop me if I am wrong but wasn’t that a maguffin’ in Inuyasha?

          • Darkoneko Hellsing

            No idea. I’ve seen it used in Mob Psycho 100 recently tho.

          • I looked it up and they said they used a Kodoku in Inuyasha so Naraku could make a new body for himself. So Yeah they did. There are several other animes and stories I saw used the same thing but it is based on stories of Japanese and Chinese mysticism.

            yeah only reason why I brought it up was because I remember Miroku calling it a “Alchemist’s Jar” on Adult Swim
