An amabie is a Japanese yokai that is said to have predicted a plague and then encouraged people to share its image to protect them from that previously predicted plague. Or something like that.
The amabie has recently been re-remembered all over Japanese social media with people posting their own adorable depictions of that long-haired, beak-faced, three-footed creature and wishing the current plague (Covid-19) to go away.
But that’s not the half of it. Imagine my surprise when I learned of rumors about a mysterious glowing object was appearing just off the coast near my house. A little research and some very good friends and I was able to track down the when and where and sneak over in the dead of night and see what I could see.

hmmm is the amabie a Steven Universe fan ????????
Ah! I’ve heard so much about Steven Universe. I saw a very early episode back in 2015 when I was studying in Seattle. Unfortunately, we can’t get it here in Japan. My curiosity is piqued!
Anyone else got a bit freaked out, I fozed. Like could not move as if I could see it in front of me
This episode was so much fun to make. The Amabie’s song was quite hypnotizing. Thank you for listening!
