Did...did they really just compare Kirinmaru's daughter to Rin? ARE THEY SERIOUSLY SAYING WITH A STRAIGHT FACE DONT WORRY RIN AND SESSHOMARU ARE AN EQUAL COUPLE BUT ALSO LET'S COMPARE HER TO THE ENEMY'S DAUGHTER??? IS THERE AN AUDACITY FOUNTAIN AT SUNRISE????
I'm gonna go play some wordle unlimited this is too much 😭
PS ALSO I'D LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT HER NAME IS RION
YES, YES AND YEEEEEEEEEES, IT'S FINALLY HERE! THE INUYASHA MOROHA REUNION, OMG. THEY NEEDED A BIT OF HELP - KUDOS KAGOME AND TOWA- BUT THEN LOOK AT THEM, LOOK HOW HAPPY HE IS TO HAVE HIS BABY, TO HOLD HIS BABY, OMG I CAN'T STOP SCREAMING. Look at them finally together as a family. 😭😭😭❤️❤️❤️🥺🥺🥺❤️❤️❤️😭😭😭😭🥺🥺🥺🥺❤️❤️😭😭❤️😭🥺❤️🥺🥺
They're trying to claim that antis didn't understand the reason Rion got compared to Rin. That it was just meant to highlight the difference between why the two girls were watching the respective guy. Completely glossing over the fact that it's bizarre to have that be such a big part of Kirinmaru's story in the first place. Why write in a whole arc that ultimately compares someone's relationship with their daughter to someone's relationship with their wife??? It's such a weird take and they just refuse to get it. Of course they won't address the way Rin is drawn either lol. That's not how the adult women in the series are drawn, nor is it the way the older teens are drawn. Why are her eyes taking up more than half her face and why can't they settle on an eye shape??? They're using a classic eye-head ratio for portraying a child with her and they can't figure out what eyes to even give her. I wouldn't mind her being so short if she had a grown face, but she's a whole child. I feel so sad for Rin!! ;____;
I’d love to know why they think that Rion got directly compared to Rin then, because that choice absolutely baffled me. Like you cannot tell me that the only comparison they wanted to make was to "highlight the differences between the two girls". Especially considering the critiques they’ve gotten over SessRin. Why would they compare her to a little girl who has the same name??? Like it just makes no sense. When I saw it, I legit had to pause the show and walk away, because I was laughing so hard in that “I can’t believe this” kind of way. I was watching it with my best friend and she completely lost it. LIKE WHY? WHY WOULD YOU COMPARE RIN TO A CHILD WHEN IT'S BLATANTLY OBVIOUS THAT THE SHOW IS EXTREMELY AWARE OF THE CRITICISM IT'S GOTTEN??? WHY?
(The whole scene was “women and children don’t belong on the battlefield”, a line that was originally thrown Kirinmaru’s way by Toga. Which is absolutely hysterical coming from an Inuyasha sequel, when half of the main cast were powerful women. But anyway, is the show trying to imply that Inukimi, icon that she is, would’ve gotten with a man who spewed garbage like “women don’t belong on the battlefield” and hasn’t seen a few battles in her lifetime? Like Sesshomaru literally tackled her when he saw her??? YOU TRYING TO TELL ME THAT HE JUST DID THAT JUST BECAUSE AND NOT BECAUSE THEY HADN’T DONE THAT KIND OF THING BEFORE?)
(i have sooooooo many thoughts on the stupid ‘sexism is bad’ storyline they did with Setsuna and saying that Sango has been the only female demon hunter ever before her, like BABES! I’M 99% POSITIVE THAT AT NO POINT WAS IT IMPLIED THAT SANGO WAS THE ONLY FEMALE DEMON HUNTER EVER! Also the idea that Sango wouldn’t train her own daughters in demon hunting and only in making hunting gear is fucking stupid, and EXCUSE ME, WHAT ABOUT MIDORIKO? PRIESTESSES CANONICALLY FIGHT DEMONS ALL THE TIME? 😭).
And yeah, Rin definitely looks really young.
I'm guessing what happened is that rather than trying to come up with new designs to reflect the ages of the characters (WE WERE ROBBED PILF INUKAG AND MIRSAN) they just kept them as close as they could to the original. So they attempted to do that with Rin, but she just looks like a slightly stretched out version of herself in the first episode. I’d rather just have some new designs.
I wouldn't even care about her looks if they had developed her more or developed her and Sess, as well as deepened her relationship with Setsuna and Towa. Sunrise are asking me to be emotionally invested in SessRin and their family without giving me a reason to be, and on top of that, trying to get me to care about Rion and Kirinmaru by using Rin. Why would I care about the relationship a villain has with his daughter, which is an extremely basic “i love my family but we’re on opposing sides” trope, that much when I don't care about the main characters relationships with their parents?
Sesshomaru in this scene be like: bestie. Bestie you do know I went to HELL with the risk of never being able to come back on the off chance I could save your life and you want me to KILL YOU??? BY MY HAND???
