She took two fish but kept all her engineering and seemed fine, but ultimately those hits ruptured avgas storage that ultimately resulted in fuel air explosions and fires that claimed her. She likely could have been saved with better DC. Taiho and Shinano were both lost the same way; mild survivable damage from torpedo hits rupturing fuel storage and secondary explosions ultimately claiming them well after the initial attack. Shinano probably was the least damaged carrier that sank given her size and armor relative to the attack she took.
