Blue 9 thing?

Postby PKMN_Phoenix » Mon Sep 25, 2006 2:46 am

I have been watching a lot of different anime's over the years and I seem to notice that a lot of anime's use this weird looking thing that looks like a blue smooth rock in the shape of a nine. (It isn't always blue, but most of the time it is). It seems to have a different purpose (if any at all) for each anime I have seen it in, I was just wondering if anyone knew what the significance behind it is.

Anime's I have seen it in:

Blue Seed
Ikki-Tousen
Blue Gender
Karas

And probably atleast six other anime's, but I am having trouble remembering all the names of them at the moment. (its late)

If anyone know's what I am talkin about, and can enlighten me as to what it is, it will be much appreciated. :D

The magatama is one of the three sacred treasures of Japan, and represents Benevolence. Its believed myhologically, to carry the souls of people. More info from Wikipedia:
