Code #1

Observations

Inside the source we find a goo.gl link (goo.gl/zzVgxu), which leads us to a picture with scary looking figures on it.
Counting the image sections, we see that there are 15 sections.

[hint]Google Image reverse search will help to identify what you are seeing[/hint]

Everything from the second line onwards are creature names, so the first line might be a hint.
[hint]Since we are in a Japanese Yōkai theme, what does onna/otoko mean? [/hint]


Code #4

Observations

Am I pretty? Ociobyjqjche
Do you need your legs? Kinyvi
I want to drown you but you are bowing? Ctwgeokudubj

Not very much to go on here, but garbled text normally hints to come transformation cipher.
[hint]When Atbash and ROT fail, there is always one more that can take a passphrase![/hint]

One very large block of text, many repeating words. So first step would be looking at the unique names and why there is one lone word at the bottom.
[hint]That lone word is not a hint at the keyword, it is a hint at the cipher needed.[/hint]

Two sections of 5, this normally hints to each section being a pre/suffix. But this is not a normal case 😉
[hint]Look at what you can see when you run the whole thing through ROT-X, familiarity of Yōkai names helps.[/hint]
