IS IT JUST AN ANIME? IS IT BECAUSE IT IS A JAPANESE WORK?
Inuyasha’s new sequel series, Hanyo no Yashahime, introduces us to the two daughters of Sesshomaru, the brother of the protagonist of the original series. This presented a number of doubts from fans since this anime was announced in 2020.
What’s going on? Well, who is Towa Higurashi and Setsuna’s mom? We already know that Moroha is Inuyasha and Kagome’s daughter, however, what about Sesshomaru’s wife?
In the original Inuyasha series, Sesshomaru was a kind of antagonist who did not tolerate her brother for being half demon-half human, then, as time goes by, he meets Rin, a little girl whom he begins to protect. This somewhat softens this individual.
Well, in the most recent episode of Hanyo no Yashahime what many had imagined happened; Setsuna and Towa’s mom was Rin, that means she is Sesshomaru’s partner. While there were Inuyasha fans who were happy, there were others who flatly saw this as another case of pedophilia.
INUYASHA FANS ‘REACTIONS TO THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SESSHOMARU AND RIN
As we mentioned, there are very specific comments in the relationship between Sesshomaru and Rin. Many of them have to do with Inuyasha’s brother messing with a minor.
During the episode of Hanyo no Yashahime it is possible to appreciate that Rin is the mother of Setsuna and Towa, she even she chooses the names very quickly, however, we do not know exactly how old the little girl is. There are fans who believe that she is between 14 or 15 years old, but nothing is ever said.
Do not lose sight of the opinions of Inuyasha fans who discuss whether Rin is 14 or 15 when she gives birth or, failing her, 15 years have passed since they met.
The question of debate here is Rin’s true age when she gives birth, because it is not understood if it has been 15 years since they met or if she gave birth since she was 14 or 15 years old. To that we must add that in Inuyasha, Sesshomaru is a thousand years old (although she looks 23).
The chat on Twitter is quite interesting and is lending itself to various interpretations by the more casual and driven Inuyasha fans. Don’t forget that Hanyo no Yashahime is available through Crunchyroll.
