The crew was assembled in reverence on the Walrus with the captain was standing on the prow with an offering to both Osano-wo and Suitengu. Accompanied with the sound of drums, he lit a bronze brazier and began his first prayer.

''The lightning dances in our eyes
The thunder rattles in our ears,
The fire runs through our veins

O Great Fortune,
Look into our hearts!
Speak with thunder,
Your words will be delivered

O Great Fortune, we sail beneath your skies
To be, to be,
Thunderous, victorious and free!

O Father of Storms,
O Great Fortune.''

The men of the crew echoed the prayer before Susumu burned the offering.
He then moved to the egde of the prow, holding the second one.

''Fortune of Waves and Seas
Where the ships go down
Mind the great sea-farers
On the open way.

We sail to peril
Let us deliver to your depths
The vessels of this alien evil
So we can find favor

When the last lights darken
On the far coastline,
Wave and port and peril
Sea-Lord - all is yours!''

Once more the crew repeated the verses and Susumu let go of the offering, watching it sink in the darkness
