** No one sees Ammy ''for what she actually is'', you mean.

** 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.

** 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.

* 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.
