Did you see it coming?

Yesterday I revealed Mogasa. The book is peppered with little clues, but the natural thing to assume is that Mogasa is a new god. He is. He just isn't, well, completely new.

Don't do the thing, Asuka!

Keyword: marshes. 

More marshes!

I think Chirikai makes a sarcastic comment in response. 

In all honesty, re-reading the entirety of Chapter Twenty-two after this reveal changes the tone of the chapter drastically. He's not just talking about his virus...

Retan Shitunpe doesn't want to think about his kid, Mogasa!
