"You’re getting older, and you’ll see that life isn’t like your fairy tales. The world is a cruel place. And you’ll learn that, even if it hurts."

Izanagi & Izanami
In Japanese mythology, Izanagi and Izanami created the Japanese islands by stirring a spear in the ocean. Together, the pair had many children.
When Izanami died, Izanagi traveled to the Yomi (the mythical Japanese underworld) to retrieve her. Similar to the Greek story of Orpheus and Euridce, Izanagi could have brough his wife back to the land of the living if he did not look upon her in Yomi. Sadly, he failed to do so and looked upon her rotting corpse.
Izanagi fled Yomi and his furious wife sent malignant spirits after him.
