** It seems kind of nice when you think that walls are everywhere, so a God is always protecting you. That's the main principle of Shintoism; everything has a spirit and could be a God, so that's why Japanese people say "I'm home!" or "I'm going out!" even if they live alone. Because the gods can hear them.

** This is old, but anyway. I recently went through this part (replaying past favorites), and I'm pretty sure he said that his inner eye "lets him see the true form of others", and when he speaks to Amaterasu, he says that she is "a maiden most fair", and continues to refer to her as such until he moves on. Also, Issun only ''seems'' like a bug when compared to the "normal" size; the Poncles basically ''are'' just miniature humans, so his comparison as "a little booger" is fitting--he's minuscule, the priest would still realize his true appearance due to his inner eye, and he's a booger of a guy.

** EDIT: There's more. The plot straight up breaks the rules it established with Oni Island, because when you're running to save Rao, you should be able to look back and see Oni Island just a little ways away from Watcher's Cape. And yet, it's way off in the distance. It's only until Himiko "locates" the island that it moves into position, even though there was absolutely nothing about your conversation with her that indicated that all of her praying would move actually move Oni Island.

* Just what was the point of "locating" Oni Island? From your first conversation with Himiko, it sounds like you would need to know the location of the island well before it actually appears there, because the preparations would take a long time. And yet, mere minutes after Himiko tells you the location, you're standing on the island. And Oni Island only shifts position once per day at sunset, so they should've been able to figure out where it was 24 hours before it changed location just by using their eyes. Why did Himiko need to spend weeks praying and then [[spoiler:die, sealing her soul in the crystal ball]] when they could've just asked the merchant at North Ryoshima Coast where it was, or, you know, just looked themselves? Following that logic, what's the big rush in getting to the island? Couldn't they have just hung out near the ocean at sunset every night, see where the island appeared, and when it appeared in a place close enough to get to, just do the Water Dragon thing and have a full 24 hours until it shifts?

* Why did Amaterasu [[spoiler:give the Fox Rods to Fake Rao]]? Waka later says she knew what [[spoiler:Queen Himiko's]] fate was. But it seemed like Amaterasu didn't know what was going on when she handed them over, or that Rao [[spoiler:was really Ninetails]]. It's hard to know what is going on in Amaterasu's head, I guess.

*** Didn't Ninetails say it was difficult to be in that body or something. Maybe she was actually wearing her skin (and maybe her flesh too) and the bones weren't needed. It would help it hide its scent, and in a world with the canine warriors and the Luna tribe.

** Amaterasu probably remembers Waka and Waka remembers her but doesn't act like he does. I wondered why but maybe because Yami was looking for him or he felt guilty about the Arc of Yamato incident and didn't want to think about it. But I still wonder why.
** Well, it depends how you look at it. One way Amaterasu didn't know what was going on and Waka saying "Hey, this is what you have to do ''Mon ami''" and telling her everything that she needs to do would have been pointless. I mean, she couldn't defeat anyone with just bloom. It would have been pointless to tell her since she had to go and get all of her powers back.

why if they were pretty close friends.

*** Rao's body was in such a state that it was likely in the well for years. But according to everyone else, she had always been around. There was no gap beteen Rao's death and Fake Rao taking her place. This suggests that Ninetails killed Rao at least 3 years prior to the events of the game, but never missed a day pretending to be her. More likey, Ninetails lost to fox rods long ago, and other demons had been using them until the Dragon King tried to seal them away. Or, she'd picked a fight with the Dragon King and lost them then. The only way she could have kiled Rao recently would be if she could speed up time to make the corpse appear to be much older than it is.
