Last we saw Ōkuninushi, he showed kindness to a hare in distress, and the hare of Inaba had foretold that he would be the one that the princess of Yakami would desire. And this was true, because when his 80 brothers showed up at court and declared their intentions, the princess insisted she would only marry him--so thus, his brothers began trying to kill him off...

    This gets even weirder, when you consider that Susanoo is Okuninushi's distant ancestor. Which would make the daughter, Suserihime, also a distant ancestor. So … that's incest? Kinda? Oh well, it's mythology, I'm sure it's fine!

    The thing with the centipedes and berries reminds me of an old Superman comic (golden age, maybe.) where a hit man had been hired to off Clark Kent because he was doing his nosy reporter schtick too close to some mob boss or politician. So the hitman holes up in a hotel or whatnot near a place where Clark and Lois often have their lunch. Clark is eating a salad when the hitman fires his first shot. Of course, Clark is fully aware of this, but with miss Intrepid Reporter right effin’ there he can’t do a damn thing about it. The hitman thinks he missed when his first shot didn’t fell the reporter, so he fires again. And again. And again. Until Clark’s salad is chock full of all the misshaped slugs that the sniper thought had missed. He can’t just pick them out, Lois would see them and start asking all sorts of reportery questions he couldn’t afford, so he hides the evidence in the only way he can. By eating the bullets like croutons. The sniper lines up his next shot, sees this weird nerd in the baggy clothes just noshing down on bullet salad, backs his shit up, and books it out of metropolis. If the fucking mid level reporters eat bullets in their salads, there’s no telling what other absurd badass fuckery was going on there and he wanted absolutely nothing to do with it.

    Awwww. This episode is brought to you by unquenchable sibling jealousy, helpful goddesses, magic scarves, and sleepy snakes. And that Susano-o... what a dude; typical man, covering up their elation with trying to act strong and stoic/threatening death if their daughters aren't treated right.

    As a sequel to the story, Yagamihime (the one the hare predicted) was brought back to Izumo. But Susanoo's daughter got jealous, Yagamihime scared, she leave her baby behind and run haha. And Okuninushi went to Koshi to court some princess. Susanoo's daughter get even more jealous. Izumo dislike and left for trip across Yamato (or simply, the rest of Japan). They reconcile and.... I'm lazy to type more haha
