Brain of the Moon
Doctor, if a blade was to hit a human's body multiple times in the chest, would the one who has been hit have no chances of survival? To specify further, said blade is in no way sharp and it actually hits it's target.

You are neglecting critical information like force, number of blows, location of blows, and so on. Regardless, assuming that there are no actual puncture wounds or lacerations, since as you said the blade is not sharp whatsoever, it is probably something that the person could survive without too much difficulty.

Ayyy, señorita Eirin, I wonder and ponder: Other than anons, has anyone ever tried to reference the "Help me, Eirin" song in a way that you'd have indulged them?

The princess uses it on occasion, but I doubt it is in any sort of reference. She simply prefers to call out rather than coming to find me.

Is there a form of medicine that forces a soul out of it's host?

That is called death. The medicine you want is any given poison.

Or perhaps you mean something a little less fatal and more in the sense of the colloquially termed out-of-body experiences or astral projections. The degree of this effect has various gradients. For example, the soul may never leave the body and instead a spiritual consciousness is projected beyond the physical form, or perhaps the soul leaves entirely with only the most base biological functions remaining in the corporeal form. I do have some medicines that can achieve these effects, but generally you will want to be more specific with your requests if you do not want to lead to misunderstandings.

"Are demons supposed to have DNA? I've been doing some research with a friend of mine who's a succubus and she seems to but one of her associates said demons aren't supposed to. I felt it prudent to defer to someone more learned on the matter."

I find it interesting how so many questions that are posed to me can be answered with the blanket statement of ‘it depends.’ With demons the primary dependence on whether or not they have DNA is going to be the source of their origin. Many demons who are derived directly from humans, in the sense that they are fallen souls or humans consumed by darkness, will generally have DNA carrying their attributes. In many cases this may be highly corrupted or mutated genetic material, but it is there nonetheless.

As for many demons who manifest independently within demon realms, generally their form is constructed of something more akin to solidified miasma. Though they appear to have very common biological functions to demons originating from humans, they differ in the finest of details in that matter. The demons in the realm of Makai attached to this one are primarily of this type, as most of them were formed by the will of their creator god, Lady Shinki.

You may be curious, then, about demon hybrid reproduction. While human-based demons can typically reproduce normally, demon-spawn of those made from miasma may also have this capability. In this case generally the miasma provided by the parent demon can corrupt the gametes provided by the parent human, creating a child resembling a human-based demon in many ways.

Of course these things may vary from one universe to another, so it is difficult to speak in more than just general terms on the matter. These are simply my observations from those with whom I was acquainted.

What's the difference between Kaguya and Mokou's immortality, and what was different about the Hourai Elixir they drank?
Anonymous

There is no effective difference between the immortality experienced by Miss Mokou and that shown by the Princess. There may be some minor differences simply tied to the fact that one was Lunarian and the other human, but those would truthfully be very minor. Likewise there was likely no difference in the Elixirs that they drank. It may be possible that the Elixir consumed by Miss Mokou may have some very minute impurities in it due to how long it remained on earth, but it has obviously not shown any significant difference in the final result.

1. How difficult is it to hit someone's knee, from a reasonable distance, with a bow & arrow? 2. What lasting effect would said knee/leg injury have on a persons lifestyle?
Anonymous

That would depend on the skill of the archer and the medical resources available, respectively. The largest problem with external injuries to the knee is the great number of tendons and ligaments associated with that very small area. An arrow applied laterally or to the back of the knee could lacerate large enough arteries to cause significant bleeding out. Barring that, there would still be the great chance of permanently damaging one of the aforementioned connective tissues. Damage to tendons of the middle of the leg could prevent proper bending of the leg or flexing of the foot. Even the most generous injury might prevent an individual from being able to sprint or run for any considerable distance, and even standing in place might be accompanied by chronic pain for a long period of time afterward.

Good job. You won the prize of my disdain.

Any advice for taking a two-foot wide blade straight through the torso aside from defying death.

Try to avoid having it pass through any vital organs, I suppose. Losing a pound of flesh off the side of your ribs is far more survivable than a punctured lung or heart or artery, if only marginally so. The lower on the abdomen that you can manage to take the blow, the better, and preferably have the strike along the side rather than anywhere near the center of the body.

Are your mother and father important people on the moon? like, nobles or researchers or previous rulers or all of those combined or the like?

((If we go by the whole Eirin being Omoikane thing, then her father would be Takamimusuhi no Kami, one of the three oldest gods acknowledged in Shinto. She has no mother to speak of.))

You have practiced medicine for such a long time now, I have to wonder: how long do you think it will be until you are ready to perform medicine?

That would be whenever you are capable of performing comedy that does not serve as a cure for insomnia, I imagine.
