Why does this page exist?[edit]

As noted by the page itself, Japanese makes no distinction between ravens and crows. So... uh... why are we? Especially since, working from the Japanese, we have no reason to believe that any of them are ravens rather than crows. This is also creates some confusion with Yatagarasu, who is usually described as a crow. Honestly, I'd like to replace all instances of Hell Raven with Hell Crow because Hell Raven adds nothing and creates some confusion among people who think they're supposed to be different somehow. I've seen people say things like "isn't it funny that a raven gained the power of a crow god. No matter what you might think, people are making a distinction where they're not supposed to.Clarste (talk) 16:17, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
