Welcome to the Mizuchi's Jewel fanthread =D We love the Mizuchi's Jewel EI!
We also love Drinky Tengu, the artist <3

WHY SUCH A SUDDEN ENDING? D< WE ARE DISAPPOINTED!

User Image
(More samples for using the Jewel in Post 7, after Speculations!)

Released: January 8, 2010

According to Tektek
Last evolution: April 23, 2010
Done now...?
Tektek page

~A tadpole-shaped stone which always seems to glisten with moisture.
It changes color as the two spirits dwelling within carry out their ancient rivalry~

From the first EI report:
Timmy: ". . .Mizuchi's Jewel-- right now, it looks like some kinda tadpoley piece of stone, but if I've learned anything from years of EI reports, it's that this thing is gonna turn into somethin' real neato."

The two spirits are named Enko and Daija.
They appear to be starting out as a fish and a salamander.

Feb 14 - We have reached 100 fans!
Feb 19 - Third evolution!
March 12 - Fourth Evo!
EI Report details: There's an amazing update to Mizuchi's Jewel-- it was a brilliant item to begin with, but now we're really seeing it bursting forth into the major leagues with some gorgeous new headwear, cool belts and mystical animals.
March 19 - Mini evo! Blue fish scales and snake tail!

April 23 - Final (DISAPPOINTINGLY QUICK) Evo.
EI Report: It wouldn't be an epic finale without a ton of poses, would it? Look for appearances by a scary turtle lady, an amazing dragon, plus new skins, wigs, kimonos and more.

Keep up the good work!

What do you think will Mizuchi's Jewel turn into?
Any ideas?
Please don't argue and whine if I don't post what you said. I can't keep up with everyone, or fit everything here.


-The description says something about a tapdole...and two warring spirits

Sakimichi
A traditional ghost/japanese item because of it's shape and weird glow

MadPad

I guess we'll get a kappa and some sort of snake river-god out of it.

saya-kitsune13
There actually was a page on Wikipedia about Mizuchi. Wikipedia Page

Zora Kalina
-The stones remind me of Magatamas. More info here.
My theory is that both of the deities spirits got trapped/sealed inside the stones somehow, but even still continue to fight each other for some reason. More importantly, hy are they fighting if they're the same kind of creature/deity?

Raissa Firehawk
Maybe they're spirits of people from ancient times...who once fought over a lover.

Coyote Starrk
Info: The jewel is a sacred jewel. An Mizuchi is a river god/deity a unhorned dragon.
thats basic info its not a kappa at all

Madalyn Plith
This new Evolving Item is, as everyone is guessing, going to revolve around water deities. There are two names involved with this item: Enko and Daija. Researching both of these names, on sites with ridiculously long URLs and blocks of text, reveal than Enko is a Monkey, and Daija is a serpent. I feel it would be safe to assume these two animals will become a major part of this Mizuchi item.

SaikoTaiko
Well "mizu" means water, and by the description, it is definetely a water related Japanese spirit thing...And "chi" is spirit or power or something. Water Spirit's Jewel?
And second, from my childhood learnings (I'm half Japanese, and grew up learning about Japanese folklore), "daija" is usually a giant white snake god-like thing that lives in water...
But perhaps it is a Daija (white snake god) fighting another Japanese god?
I have no idea what a "enko" is, sorry.
But I googled it, and got a few images of a kappa.

CheeseCupcake
So I think that the Serpent god and the kappa/monkey got into a fight when
their powers collide imprisoning them into these stones.

Prince Forever True
Since it's by Drinkytengu, I think it will have highly saturated colors, as well as lots of skins, and lots of recolorings of the same items.
Drinkytengu's other items like the Lotus, Nestegg, and Pearl are colorful, and also have lots of skins and body parts (like the naga tails and the mermaid tails). The Kelp had the kelpie bottoms, and the Yama had tengu skins and tengu wings.
Reading from the other posts, it seems that this item will be based off of a mythological creature. I read that it could be a dragon, or a kappa. If it is one of those, chances are that Drinkytengu will include bodyparts so that we can modify our avatars to look like them (like kappa bodies, skins, etc).

Bunai
-Companion...humanoid?
-Companion beasts.
-Long hair wigs.
-Swords / Staffs
-Obi xD even if it is not a Kimono.
-Sleeves.
-Sea background.
-Manatee

Rairi Sakurai
I would love some companion poses... And maybe jewelry. I used to be a big fan of weapons, but some look to clumsy for my liking. D:

9 IX 6
- I am poses
- Hair/Eyes
- Chinese style items
- Background and effects Like water splash
- Aura teal/red surronding us

Bigt275316
I would love a Spear with the flame coming off the tip.

xXAnnon_KiiXx
I just realized that I would like to get blue and red suspenders from this with the desine that's on the tabi socks idk why I just want them
well i know a way it could work...you could have each suspender be like a dragon that goes over the sholder and biteing the waist of the pants holding them up then on the back side of the avi the tail could attach to the back of the pants i got this idea because chinese dragons are generally pretty long

FableCat
It could be a jewelery dragon...
or
a little dragon resting on owner hand or shoulder..

Bigt275316
I would love to see a End Pose where the avys are holding a red jewel in one have and a green one in the other with the flames coming from them like fireballs.

smartass_himitsu
maybe gloves, like the peasant gloves but with the same designs as the stockings? smoke like when a magician makes an escape. maybe tattoo's of the time period this is taken from or representing the item. bluish green eyes or redish orange eyes.


EVERYONE SAYS
Drinky, You should mini evo the dual sleeves onto it.

Draconic Oni
I'd love more poses with the flames by themselves. Also how about some more translucent looking skin or clothing?
Weapons would be nice.
And I read on Wikipedia that it's suppose to be a water dragon of some sort. Seeing as there is a sad lack of decent dragon items on Gaia (like I've been wanting a tail that looks like the blue dragon tail from that one game promotion, but it's the wrong shade of blue) [except Fallen Wish, which to a dragon addict like me, is the greatest EI ever created xD]
Perhaps something like a spiked salamander tail or the feathery gills on mudfishes?

Like already stated in another thread, this is my theory:

I guess we'll get a kappa and some sort of snake river-god out of it.

Quote:

Besides this ancient orochi reading, the kanji 大蛇 are commonly pronounced daija "big snake; large serpent".

http://www.absoluteastronomy.com/topics/Orochi (Etymology section)

Quote:
Although the word kappa, originally from the Kanto region, meaning child of the river, has come to be generally associated with the creature, there are more than eighty regional variations (ONO 1994, 14), including: kawappa, gawappa, kawako, kogo, kawataro, mizushi, mizuchi, enko, kawaso, suitengu, komahiki, and dangame.

You know, those to thingies are named Enko and Daija. :3

I hope it ends up cool. Going by the price it should be.
The shape reminds me of the Magatama from the anime Otogi Zoshi.
