Denjiro:—but Kin-san, you’re indeed a smart man!! Lord Yasuie’s drawing is telling us to put 2 lines on the belly of the viper that represents Habu Port. These 2 lines means to erase the belly of the viper, in order words, “erase the words”!!
You told everyone just the part about the “two lines” because anyone who heard would’ve known that it means to erase the words in the middle of “ha bu mi na to”(Habu Port), which leaves us with hato(seawall).
—But, noticing that Orochi’s spy is near by, you purposely told those who are close the wrong answer: Tokage Port!!
And the spy would just pass that information on to Orochi!!
well then my English is really bad. was Denjiro not talking to him and telling that he is smart , did i misunderstand something?
