Mibu Possession Balloon Story & Lore

  • The Rejuvenating Water that springs from the Dragon's Blood and begets Stagnation and Undeath fills this paper balloon. This paper balloon-like design could have been selected to emulate the Japanese lanterns of the Obon Festival bon odori paper lanterns thumb2. The bonshō bells of the Mibu Taro Troopers strengthen the link to the Obon Festival, which honors the dead and offers them guidance in the form of Japanese lanterns which are placed on water. The logic of this being that the paper lanterns offer guidance, so you, an undead protagonist, find more items. The kanjis that compose "kamifusen" can be read as both "paper balloon" and "god balloon". The Obon festival also involves the “hozuki” or “Japanese Lantern”, "Physalis" or "bladder". Hōzuki - 鬼灯, Demon Lantern - was also the Japanese name of Bloodborne's jellyfish-like Winter Lanterns.

      Just watched an amazing video on YouTube of how to farm these... I’m late game, so Ashina Castle is ablaze. 1. Ashina Castle Idol, at the main gates, looking up the stairs, there is a Ashina NPC by the wall to the right.. 2. Grapple up twice by the short wall that’s on fire when prompted.. 3. There is two giant guys roaming this small area.. One is on the ground as soon as you hit the 2nd grapple, and the other is opposite the rooftop you are stood upon. 4. Pop Possesion Balloon, Golden Vortex... Use vortex to gain item drop then backstab for more.. 5. Rinse and repeat.. Also, there’s a roof you can take that takes you straight back to the Ashina Castle Idol after the 2nd kill.. Reslly good farming spot for these balloons late game..
