Mythological depiction of the Yatagarasu


Yatagarasu was the avatar of Amateratsu and the Personification of the Sun. It used to be a giant crow living in the sun. However, seemingly after Houyi shot down the sun, it was found deceased. Following this, Kanako planned to make a certain underworld raven a living nuclear reactor by making her absorb the deceased Sun God into her being.
