Storyboard Text

  • In the beginning there was a couple by the names of Izanami and Izanagi. One day Izanami thought of giving warmth to all creation through fire but was eradicated.
  • This incident gave birth to Kagutsuchi, the fire Kami but Izanagi was devastated. Despite this incident Izanagi was determined to follow his wife to Yomi
  • Despite finally seeing his wife again, Izanagi wasn't man enough to stay and prioritized looks over love.
  • When Izanagi finally saw her, he was shocked to see the dirty corpse of Izanami.
  • Full of rage, Izanami commanded an army of women from Yomi to go after Izanagi.
  • The women eventually caught up with him. They made him filthy.
  • GET HIM!!!!
  • But being the creative Kami, he was able to dodge the attacks of the army trough multiple ways. From growing grapevines to throwing peaches at the enemy.
  • As he sealed Yomi. His wife shouted a threat to strangle all of the living.
  • When he arrived back from Yomi, he was quite isolated from the people because of his stench. So he took action.
  • Tsukuyomi, god of the moon, came out of his right eye
  • While he was taking a bath, because of his creative actions, he was able to create more Kami.
  • Amaterasu, goddess of the sun, came out of his left eye.
  • And finally Susano-o, god of the sea, came out of his nose
