Me thinking about how Rin once again sympathizes and protects people that kidnap/want to hurt her because she can see that they're suffering. AGAIN.
And now Zero.
"Sesshomaru is not Rin's dad. Jaken is the one who really acts like her father figure"
"This damn brat, she never shuts up. Also why does Sesshomaru-sama bring along this little human girl? It's past time she was gotten rid of" Manga 157.
Yeah, that's totally a great father figure 🙄 I don't understand why anyone would see Jaken as Rin's father when he was rude, mean and even cruel to her throughout the entire Inuyasha series. So I thought I would make a brief compilation of scenes to see how wonderful Jaken was with Rin.
Chapter 259, Chapter 417: "Dolt", "fool", "stupid", "damn brat" are some of the ways Jaken calls Rin.
Chapter 260. This is a good example of what most of Jaken's interactions with Rin are based on:
He shows over and over again that he cares for Rin only because he fears that Sesshomaru will scold him if anything happens to her, not because he genuinely cares about her. Chapter 252:
And anime Jaken is not better than his manga version. Episode 96:
Rin: "I'm hungry"
Jaken: "Quiet, Rin! A forest like this will have nothing for you to eat. Just bear it!"
It's Sesshomaru himself who has to step in to tell Jaken to let her go get food. And It's funny how some people think Sesshomaru isn't a father figure to Rin because he tells her to look for food, but they do think Jaken is a great father when he doesn't give af about Rin being hungry 🙄
In fact, some of the meanest things said to Rin are said by Jaken himself. Episode 162:
Rin: "what will I do in Lord Sesshomaru's empire?"
Jaken: "You intend to follow us all the way there?"
He proceeds to tell her that she will be dead by then before falling asleep, leaving Rin very distraught and showing once again that he doesn't really care what happens to her. If this is your supposed daughter and she wants to know what role she plays in your future I don't think this is the way to answer her. At the end of the episode it is Sesshomaru (Rin's true father figure) who tells her, in his own way, that she is important to him and he will never forget her.
And yes, when she is revived for the second time, Jaken cries and (even when he says that he only does it for Sesshomaru) I do believe that Jaken came to like Rin in some way, but that just isn't enough to erase all his bad behavior towards her and it's definitely not enough to make him a wonderful father figure. Finally, this new Yashahime version of Jaken where he is so worried and loves Rin so much is totally Out of Character like all the other Iy characters in Yashahime.
How it should have happened
Kirinmaru: If it isn’t Lady Ri-
*Rin hits him with her sandal 🩴 (if she has one)
Rin: That’s for injuring the love of my life!!!
Sesshomaru: She is talking about me! I am the love of your life🥺😍
Rin: I don’t know! I am still angry at you 😡
*Rin hits Kirinmaru again
Rin: And that’s for trying to kill my children and niece
Hanyou no Yashahime - Episode 24 preview (Spoilers!)
Can you hear that? It's the sound of my heart, BREAKING INTO PIECES.
I WANT YOU SMILING. SEEING YOU CRYING IS TOO MUCH.
I CAN'T imagine how she must be feeling. That will probably lead her to becomes a full demon. She won't be able to control it. Damn, I can almost imagine her attacking her own father, blaming him for everything. I'm telling you, it's going to be loaded with EMOTIONS.
Now, I like that to think that the blade Sesshoumaru is referring to for Setsuna is the key to break the link between Zero and Rin. If Setsuna was to have such a sword, maybe Towa could have a sword similar to Tensaiga. And she would be able to save Setsuna.
Like InuYasha inherited Tessaiga and Sesshoumaru had Tensaiga, I like to imagine this parallel.
CAN THIS FAMILY HAVE A BREAK? JUST GIVE THEM A HAPPY ENDING 😭
Either way, 7 days to go before I cry my eyes out.
