commentary: 河童 (kappa)

Hiroi Michiaki: And this is a kappa.

Janell Landis: Kappa.

Paula Curtis: Ahh.

Hiroi: Yeah. Kappa, kappa in legend are living things [as opposed to ghosts or spirits], you know. They live in water, so they’re good luck against fire. And if you unfasten all of these [parts] they become tops.
