Is Sesshomaru grooming Rin? | Lipstick Alley
18) But isn't Sesshomaru's relationship with Rin too deep/unique to "simply" . figures from time to time for financial assistance and need help. Personally, I just like that Sesshomaru cares about her so much. I don't really care if they have a romantic relationship in the future or if they. This topic came up in the Kikyo vs. Kagome thread. Team Kagome all day. LOL. The one relationship that gets the sideye in Inuyasha is Sesshomaru and.
And he was right, because as soon as she sat down, she fished out the movies she had rented and intended to make him watched with her.
Until she got herself a new boyfriend, which would not be any better than her last one, Sesshomaru would be the one suffering. And now, once again, she was stolen his bed. It was a norm for them to have a sleep over because they had been doing so since they were children.
You have class tomorrow. She then grasped his arm, straighten it out before making a pillow out of it. You are now still all mine," she said happily before settling herself next to him again. He did not know how he could knock some senses into her. She would not listen no matter what he said. But to be honest, he was secretly happy. Happy that all her relationship had fail, he mused as he watched the sleeping girl in his arm.
One of his hands slowly moving the locks of hairs out of her beautiful face. She was too trusting. He may be her best friend, but he, too, was a man. A man who looked at his best friend as a woman. But she would never know that. Because in her eyes, he was a friend and nothing more. That fact sadden him. Sometimes he wished they were not best friends. If they were strangers he could openly pursue her without the fear of what they could have lost if things did not work out.
He liked what they had. He wanted it to be more, but he was afraid of what they could lose. He watched her sleeping peaceful face and leaned to kiss her forehead. I forgot to save this story and was almost done, but the computer went crazy and had to rewrite everything.
My luck these days. Hakurei, Sesshomaru confronts Jakotsu at the edge of a hazy gorge. Jakotsu makes the mistake of declaring that fact as he commences his attack on Sesshomaru, who powerfully retaliates.
Concerned that Rin will be caught in the battle, Sesshomaru orders Jaken to remove Rin from danger. Jaken takes the child, and they start to cross a suspended bridge to the other side of the chasm.
The escape is short lived: Suikotsu approaches the pair ominously from the other side. While Sesshomaru gracefully dodges and attacks Jakotsu, Jaken struggles with Suikotsu. The feisty goblin manages to ward off Suikotsu with his ninja stuck, but at a price: As Jaken and Rin flee back to Sesshomaru, Suikotsu strikes again and the bridge collapses plummeting the three into the vapor below. He wastes no time jumping into the abyss to rescue Rin. Back at the bottom of the gorge, Sesshomaru discovers a river.
The scent trail reveals that Rin was carried away, but he finds Jaken. Sesshomaru sets off in search of Rin with Jaken following on his heels. It turns out that Rin was carried away, but not by the river - Suikotsu has her.
Rin uses the carnage as an opportunity to escape but is snared by the lurking Jakotsu. Sesshomaru travels towards the village, too, having picked up the sent of the Shichinin-tai -- where they are, Rin is sure to be. The Exposed Face of Truth While the group settles in to recuperate, back in the mountain village the paralyzed Suikotsu menaces the cowering orphans.
Jakotsu observes the scene and as Rin attempts to flee, he captures her and she struggles in his clutches. A single Saimyousho buzzes in, communicating to Jakotsu that Sesshomaru is on his way.
Jakotsu orders Suikotsu to forget the children and they leave: They plan to lure him into Mt. The clash between Sesshomaru and Jakotsu escalates. Jakotsu taunts Sesshomaru, threatening to kill the captive Rin if he makes a wrong move. Sesshomaru smirks in reply. Angered by his reaction, Jakotsu swings his sword. Sesshomaru launches his defense flinging Toukijin aside, and charging Jakotsu headlong. Although wounded, the Shichinin-tai are still determined to make good of their threat to kill Rin.
Suikotsu is about to cleave the cringing Rin when an arrow streaks through the air, striking him in the throat.
Jaken explains it may take several decades to amass the funds and resources, possibly even a full years; to demons, that's nothing, but to humans, it's beyond their normal life spans. Jaken tells her "By the time, the Lord's empire is established, you'll be long-gone.
She awakens from the flute's spell and asks the children what is going on. She tells them that bandits are scarier as they kill for no reason what-so-ever while demons kill humans to eat themexplaining that her family was were killed by bandits.
Sesshomaru powering up to fight for Rin. Ongokuki senses someone is outside his cave and sees children in the shadows; he plays his flute to make them come to him, but finds them staying still. He walks up to them to see that they're only dummies dressed in clothing to trick him - "You fell for it.
Ungai calls to the children, telling them they're safe now; once they're out, he inquires if any remain in the cave. A children tells him that there's one girl still inside; he enters to find Rin again. He tells her it's safe, but she refuses to go with. Ungai picks her up and walks away with her, despite her protests of not wanting to return to a human village.
A child tells Ungai Rin said humans are scarier than demons, shocking him. He stays and does nothing as the monks try to reason with Rin to come with them. Rin is happy to see him, but Ungai is convinced she is under a spell. Ungai trying to stop Rin from going to Sesshomaru. They try again, freezing him in place; Ungai plunges his staff into the ground and release a blast from its gem, landing a direct. The explosion flings the monks backward, destroying some of their prayer beads and the gem in Ungai's staff.
As she does, Ungai stares at the destruction in shock and wonders as to why she'd go off with a demon. During all of this, Inuyasha and his companions are watching from a nearby tree line. Rin running towards Sesshomaru.
As Jaken remembers he left him back at the campsite, he goes to get A-Un. He blows off her question by telling her not to "say such silly things. He retorts that he is going to find Naraku. Jaken asks if he can come along if it isn't too much trouble. Rin tells Jaken that he doesn't need to ask.
At first Rin was so emotionally dependent on Sesshomaru that during his absence, she'd do nothing but wait for him curled up in a ball-and she took his instructions so literally that it's ridiculous. Slowly, after social interaction with Sesshomaru and Jaken who was assigned to the babysitter role by Sesshomaru she starts talking more and more, and reaching out to other people-until the end, when Rin can live away from Sesshomaru without being emotionally crushed and has grown more independent of him.
Also, why does Sesshomaru appoint Rin a babysitter? Lovers don't appoint babysitters for their lovers. That's something that a parent does for their child. And don't tell me that it's because you can't leave a kid alone by themselves, Kohaku is also a child and he was left alone with no one to watch over him all the time Naraku sends him out alone to do things like when Kohaku waited for Kagura to drop off the kidnapped Rin by himself in manga chapterSesshomaru leaves Kohaku to watch over Rin by himself even though Kohaku is only a child as well, etc.
The fact that Rin roots for Sesshomaru to get together with somebody else which means that this isn't a romantic thing in nature but a platonic thing, the fact that Sesshomaru is an adult and Rin is a pre-pubescent child, the fact that they love each other dearly, the fact that he provides for her by bringing her kimonos and protects her, the fact that they live together, the fact that she gains her independence from him, the fact that he appoints her babysitters, and the fact that she's obedient to him meaning that he's the authority figure in the relationship etc.
But Sesshomaru's mother said that Sesshomaru was becoming like his father! Sesshomaru's father did not just have a human mistress. His father was also a symphathizer of humans in general, as evidenced by the fact that he wanted Inuyasha to use the Tessaiga to protect humans as Myoga stated in manga chapter 18, page So it may merely mean that he's learning to care about humans.
Isn't Sesshomaru keeping in touch with Rin by visiting her and bringing her gifts? But how in the world does that mean that it's a romantic thing? Rumiko wrote that scene in order to show that although Rin is living with humans for her safety and is gaining independence from her parent figure like all children dothey're still in touch, like children and parents tend to do after the child moves out of the house.
Parents visit their grown children after they leave, sometimes bringing them gifts. And most children, even after they move out, still do depend on their parent figures from time to time for financial assistance and need help.
Family members very often visit each other and bring each other gifts. Is a father courting his daughter when he picks up a little something for her? I grew up in foster care in different living arrangements, and depending on the circumstances, kids that want to see their parents have visits. The parents come to visit the kids, sometimes take them out places, and they usually bring gifts. This is what gives a lot of kids in foster care something to look forward to.
When I saw the last chapter, it immediately reminded me of that, so I was shocked when people started using even that as so-called 'evidence' of Sesshomaru and Rin's relationship being a romantic thing. But he gave her a kimono. Rin's mother is DEAD. The only clothes that Kaede can provide for Rin are miko robes, like the robes that Kaede gave to Kagome to wear even before she was training as one manga chapter 6, page 6.
Who provided the girl's kimono if the girl had no mother? The father or the father figure. Does that mean that he's courting her? And while it's true that kimonos can sometimes have romantic connotations, the keyword is sometimes. The same way that flowers are also traditionally courting gifts-well, pretty much everywhere-espcially a bouquet. Flower bouquets are usually also traditionally courting gifts. And yet, does that mean that Kohaku and Sango are a couple?
Though it only happens in the anime, the anime writers made it so that Kohaku gave Sango something that was traditionally a courting gift, but they only meant it as a platonic display of affection. So I think that it's very possible that Rumiko Takahashi could've meant the kimono as merely a platonic display of affection as well. Kagura and Kanna received their kimonos from Naraku as well we can assume this, because let's face it, where else would they have gotten their kimonos?
They weren't born fully clothed, as evidenced by the fact that Hakudoshi was born naked. In manga chapterpage 11, Kagura goes and finds Hakudoshi a kimono because Hakudoshi told her to go and find him some clothes. Is Kagura courting Hakudoshi? Does that mean that Naraku is courting Kagura and Kanna? No, he was just providing for them like he's supposed to do so as their creator because he doesn't want them walking around naked. What about the Tale Of Genji and other works where things like this happened?
Just because it happened in one book that has nothing to do with Inuyasha or Rumiko Takahashi, does that means that that's what's happening here? Murasaki and Genji have nothing in common with Sesshomaru and Rin.
Genji takes a liking to Murasaki because she looks like Fujitsubo, who he is obsessed with. When her family won't give her to him cause she's viewed as being too young, he outright kidnaps her. He does send her to train in a palace to learn about noble life, etiquette, sewing, dyeing, etc.
He continues to be involved with tons of other women and the book ends when their relationship is so damaged, Murasaki leaves him to become a nun. Then she dies, and then Genji dies. So exactly what does Genji and Murasaki's situation have anything at all in common with Sesshomaru and Rin's situation?
Sesshomaru and Rin FAQs
Hell, even the Inu-Kik-Kag triangle has more in common with The Tale Of Genji with the whole "initially-liking-someone-because-they-look-like-somebody-else" thing. Go here for more information on what happens in the Tale Of Genji: But didn't that kind of thing happen all the time historically, with the Japanese lords having child brides? So that makes it okay? Historically, black people were kept as slaves and people thought that the Earth was flat.
Relationship between Sesshomaru and Rin : inuyasha
Does that mean that it's okay to keep black people as slaves? That means that the Earth is flat? Plus if you wanted to be historically accurate, if you read the Tale of Genji, when the Japanese lords had child brides, they were sent to live with nobility in order to learn about noble life, etiquette, art, calligraphy etc.
That is what happens to Murasaki in the Tale Of Genji and since the Tale Of Genji was written during the Heian era by someone who actually lived during that time period, I'd assume that it's pretty historically accurate. This link will tell you that Genji trains Murasaki in his Nijo palace, in the summary for chapter 5: Rin is sitting in a peasant village, acting as a midwife and living with a miko, which is a complete and total death-knell to her ability to perform at Sesshomaru's rank. Sesshomaru could've easily sent her to live with his mom in her castle, but he didn't.
If Rin was being trained as his wife, then why would she ever need to learn how to live with humans?
Is Sesshomaru grooming Rin?
Sesshomaru doesn't live with humans. If she was gonna be his wife, then she would never need that. After she died in the Hell Arc, Sesshomaru immediately thought to himself, "I should've left her in a human village for her safety" manga chapterpage 6and at the end So yeah, this is most likely for her safety and well being and things are not going to change.
So it's very obvious that Rin is not being "trained as a wife" for Sesshomaru in any way-nothing close to it. Also, the age of marriage during the feudal era was fourteen, not eight. Rin is much too young for marriage even by feudal era standards and is still only around ten years old at the end. But isn't this kind of thing more accepted in Japan?
If that is the case, then why is Hayao Miyazaki so clearly anti-lolicon? Why is it that Miyazaki is Japanese, and yet he seems to be so adamently against this kind of thing? They immediately become the subjects of lolicon.
In a sense, if we want to depict someone who is affirmative to us, we have no choice but to make them as lovely as possible. But now, there are too many people who shamelessly depict such heroines as if they just want such girls as pets, and things are escalating more and more.
The quote is here as the answer to the last question from Ryu Murakami: I don't think that he is, so I think that it's very possible that Takahashi could've intended for Sesshomaru and Rin's relationship to be strictly filial. Okay, so Rumiko's not automatically gonna be okay with this kind of thing just because she's Japanese. That's been made very clear in the way that she portrayed Miroku and Koharu.
When everyone found out that Miroku had proposed to an eleven year old girl to bear his child, they were shocked, disgusted and revolted by the fact that Miroku, a grown man the age of adulthood during the feudal era was 14 so Miroku was an adult by the standards of that time when he proposed to Koharuhad proposed to a child manga chapterpage 8.
The situation was portrayed as being something that was disgusting. They didn't care that Koharu had returned to Miroku when she was grown up. All of the other characters still thought that it was perverted, regardless of the fact that Koharu had come back to Miroku when she was older and of marrying age. Why does it matter? The only thing that exists in a romantic relationship that does not exist in a filial relationship is the physical attraction.
Why do you think that in order to fully consummate a marriage, you have to have sex? Because romantic love is a sexual form of love. If Sesshomaru is romantically interested in Rin, then it does mean that he's sexually attracted to her even if they aren't physically having sexand that's why this pairing bothers some people.
Because it does mean that Sesshomaru is sexually attracted to an eight year old girl that he watched grow up since she was a kid. But isn't Rin independent of Sesshomaru, like when she gets her own food? Feeding someone is considered to be a woman's duty in East Asian cultures.
Rin has to feed herself because she is the female. It doesn't matter if she's a kid, since I was expected to cook and clean around the house as soon as I turned eleven.
