Amaterasu (天照?) is a part of the Japanese myth cycle and also a major deity of the Shinto religion. She is the goddess of the sun, but also of the universe. The name Amaterasu derived from Amateru meaning "shining in heaven." The meaning of her whole name, Amaterasu-ōmikami, is "the great august kami (god) who shines in the heaven".[1] The Emperor of Japan is said to be a direct descendant of Amaterasu.

Probably the cutest version of Amaterasu ever. XD Amaterasu (or Ammy) is the main character from the video game, Okami. It's a perfect blend of traditional Japenese art and video game story telling. And of course you get to kick the butts of countless monsters as well! :P
