* What was the deal with the sailor kid in "Wind Raiser"? He seemed to feel bad about dragging the snake-like mushi back home and sickening his mother, but then he deliberately called them again ''after'' they were dealt with after making some vague comments that it shouldn't be his fault and she isn't his real mother anyway, and then when Ginko convinced him that was wrong, whistled up the wind mushi in such force that it destroyed his family's home. Seems for the best that he decided to leave forever, but what in the world was going through his mind during all of that?

*So in the "Path of Overgrowth" special from the second season, is the Sanekui mushi the same kind that Tanyuu has sealed inside her? And what's the deal with the growing number of "abnormalities" Kumado talks about?

** This is more WildMassGussing, but Ginko probably sussed out that the blacksmith would literally rather die than give up any daylight working hours.

*** The bit about Shinra's powers bringing happiness to the world is something of a DubInducedPlotHole. In the Japanese dialogue of the anime, all the mushi tell Renzu is that Shinra will be born with a power that can change the world of living things, and that having her transform into mushi in order to watch over him for his entire life would be best for the world.

* In Episode 4, Ginko tells the blacksmith that the mushi that infect his dreams can't stand sunlight. Wouldn't it have been a better idea to advise him to sleep during the day if possible, instead of giving him medicine that apparently only reduces the frequency of the dreams a little?

*** Ginko didn't lose his eye under the same circumstances that Sui lost hers; the circumstances under which he came to have only one eye are shown in a later episode. The reason he didn't do the "glass eye into functioning eyeball" trick more than once to give himself and Sui both two good eyes is probably due to it requiring the injection of mushi-goo, though. Biki's milder infection was cured much more simply, so there's no guarantee that it would be possible to obtain enough of the gunk without letting someone get infected to the degree that Sui was, and Ginko's hardly going to destroy anyone's eyes for the purpose of being able to make fake ones when he and Sui both at least have one functioning eye apiece.

** Also, she already started forgetting simple body functions like sneezing and the rumbling of a hungry stomach. So it's not that far-fetched that she'd forget the whole principle of reproduction as well. Add to that that the last time she has practiced said principle was apparently quite a while ago and she didn't seem to recall it often, which would have been the only way to keep it in her memory.

*** That't not unlike salmon, right? They leave their young in the land, when they grow up they'll go to the sea as well. It's the circle of life for Walking Swamps!

*** Ginko's manner actually doesn't depart greatly from the way many doctors are trained to conduct themselves with patients: being polite, courteous, and caring but ultimately professional.
