Rin

The Four Graces drawn by me

My dear viewers. I bestow upon you Rin, Kanna, Satsuki, and Souten, the four little girls of Inuyasha who have grown up to be lovely, elegant, and gracious young ladies. Their current ages in this pic are the following. Rin is 25 going on 26 years old, Kanna and Satsuki are 25, and Souten is 24 going on 25.   In spite of the fact that Rin and Kanna are recurring characters and Satsuki and Souten are one-time characters, I feel like these young ladies steal the show for being rather endearing in their own ways. What with Rin and her jovial personality, Kanna and her lethal silence wrapped up in an unsuspectingly lovely package, Satsuki and her overall innocence, and Souten and her mischievousness, I totally ship these young women as my SisT4, the female version of a BroT4.   In my headcanon for this quartet of young ladies, Rin is essentially the eldest and the leader of this quartet, as she has the most personality and she stands out rather well. She still has her jovial and jolly nature intact, as she knows when to let loose, and she is not bossy in the slightest.   Kanna is still the quiet one, but she feels rather comfortable with her great gal pals by her side.   Satsuki is the romantic creative with a bit of edge. One should never be fooled by her sweet attitude, as she is also a tough girl who is not afraid to put up a fight.   Souten is still the tomboy but given that she’s in her twenties she has become more ladylike. She’s essentially the bruiser of this group, so if anyone dares to hurt any or all of her homegirls, she will unleash Hell with her combat prowess.   Ergo, Rin has elegance, empathy, and kindness, Kanna has poise, class, and gentility, Satsuki has joy, laughter, and love, and Souten has strength, creativity, and endurance.   As for who I ship them with, well it’s obvious that I ship Rin with Kohaku as my OTP because I feel like they were destined for each other. Besides, I always saw Sesshoumaru as her adoptive father, thus making me a fan of not only Kohaku/Rin but also Sesshoumaru/Kagome, as they would make solid parents to Rin and Shippou and even more solid grandparents to Kohaku’s and Rin’s and Shippou’s and Souten’s grandchildren.   As for the other three, I ship Kanna with Souta because I do fancy the quiet girl and energetic boy type of pairings, Satsuki with Hakudoshi because I can and I am pretty sure they would help each other become stronger fighters, and Souten with Shippou because I can’t see any other girl with Shippou other than her and I am pretty sure that they would have a solid relationship. Yes, there’s also Satsuki but I see it more as a BroTP type of relationship with them being super supportive of each other.   Thanks for taking a gander at this piece of fanart and for reading this post. I wish you a most pleasant day.   Rin, Kanna, Satsuki, and Souten from Inuyasha belong to Rumiko Takahashi.

Two Bros, Two Wives, and Two Sets of Kids drawn by me

So here they are from left to right. Rin and Shippou, Kagome Higurashi, Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, Ayame, and my InuAya fan children, Kenta and Keita. I mainly aged up Rin to be seventeen, Shippou to be fifteen, Kagome to be twenty-four, Sesshoumaru to be twenty-eight, Inuyasha to be twenty-six, and Ayame to be twenty-three. This was something I did back when I was a seventeen-year-old third-year high school student before I transitioned to senior year back in the spring of 2010. I did this as my final project in computer class, but when looking back at this, I realized I should have outlined, hence that’s why it appeared like this. Nowadays, I know better. Okay, enough beating myself up about it let’s get on to the picture itself. As you can tell, I am not only a hardcore Inuyasha x Ayame shipper but I also ship Sesshoumaru and Kagome all the way. Even more so, I decided to bulk up both Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha to make them appear more warlike and badass. For Sesshoumaru and Kagome, I can certainly see them adopting Rin and Shippou to be their own children. Eventually, Sesshoumaru and Kagome would end up having hanyou children of their own to add to their happy family. The family dynamics would work with Sesshoumaru being the stern, strong, and calm father, Kagome being the spirited and doting mother, Rin being the fun-loving and sweet older sister, and Shippou being the adorable younger brother. There’s no doubt I love to ship Inuyasha and Ayame until the ends of the earth. They seem destined for each other. I also gave them their children, namely Kenta who is four and Keita who is three in this picture. I can envision Inuyasha as the manly, strict, brave, and tough dad and Ayame as the equally strong and loving mother. Moreover, I can see Inuyasha training his sons to be a great fighter like him. So, yes, this was something I kind of enjoyed doing when I was in my teens and it still has some sentimentality behind it. Inuyasha belongs to Rumiko Takahashi.

My Three Inuyasha OTPs drawn by me

Hey, everybody! Antoni, here, with another piece of fanart I made. This time it’s Inuyasha with three of my most beloved and favorite OTPs. From left to right we have Inuyasha/Ayame, Ginta/Shunran, and Kohaku/Rin. I aged them up to what I would think they would look like this year, even though I did make them look a lot younger than I expected them to look. In this picture, Inuyasha is 35, Ayame is 32, Ginta is 33 going on 34, Shunran is 31, Kohaku is 29, and Rin is 25 going on 26. Yes, I know I could’ve also drawn Sesshoumaru/Kagome, Miroku/Sango, Shippou/Souten, and Souta/Kanna, but there was apparently only room for three couples in my sketchpad. Moreover, I am a bigger Inuyasha/Ayame, Ginta/Shunran, and Kohaku/Rin fan because not only do I find these pairings absolutely adorable, but also plausible in their own ways. So, let’s not waste any time and talk about these respective pairings. Inuyasha/Ayame Given the amount of Inuyasha/Ayame fanfics, I have been recommending and, of course, reviewing, it should come off as no surprise that these two are my OTP for life. From the bottom of my heart, I always knew that Inuyasha should’ve ended up with someone more compatible. I mean, if I were in his position, I would move on from Kikyou, stay the absolute heck away from Kagome, and just settle with someone as tough, strong, and kickass like Ayame. Additionally, if I were in Ayame’s position, I should just let Kouga keep Kagome and I can run off with Inuyasha, with good old gramps giving his approval to someone as sturdy, strong, and steadfast like him. In terms of Inuyasha’s outfit, I did promise I was going to make something out of it after I reviewed darling krash’s fanfic A Hint of Hope, and I had an idea of how it should look. Since Inuyasha is essentially a warrior suitable for Ayame to be her loyal husband, I decided to make him look a little more tribal and dress like one of the wolf youkai, even though Inuyasha is a dog hanyou. Speaking of which, I decided to tap into Inuyasha’s full youkai side without the overall bloodthirsty nature he has in that state and make him have enhanced physical strength, given his physicality here. I also imagine him doing more hand-to-hand combat, as well as using his claws to take down his enemies. Overall, it was such a joy making a more muscular, more mature-looking, and more warlike Inuyasha, it was really envisioning him as this type of warrior. Moreover, I did keep Inuyasha’s trademark badassery, which was one thing about him I found so endearing. Ayame was also a joy to draw. I kept her signature outfit and I also decided to make her a little bit more womanly though still keeping her youth and vivacity. I can certainly see Inuyasha and Ayame fighting side by side on a battlefield and they will come home as the champions. After all of that, it’s a whole night of hot and steamy intimacy. I also envision them having children of their own, what with Inuyasha being the strong, no-nonsense, strict, yet open and cool father and Ayame being the supportive, well-meaning, and strong-minded mother. That also gives me an idea of making their fan-children. Overall, is there anything else I need to say about why I not only fancy the pants off of Inuyasha/Ayame but also love them as a couple? In my mind, they were definitely made for each other. Ginta/Shunran I have been toying with this idea of these two being together for many years. All of the sudden it hit me. No one has even thought about pairing these two together other than me. So, I guess it was up to me to give this coupling the light of day. Since I always saw Ginta’s and Hakkaku’s relationship as more platonic, as they act like fraternal twin brothers with their antics and chemistry, I thought to myself, why not give these two guys some lovely women to be their life partners. On the flipside, the Panther Devas, especially Toran, Karan, and Shunran, have been my favorite Inuyasha filler anti-heroes because of how well they work as a unit and just how fun they are in terms of their personalities. So, I kind of came to the conclusion that Ginta might as well take Shunran to be his mate and Hakkaku can take Karan. As I stated before in my fanfiction recommendation of “An Odd Pair” by JapanLurve101, I like the idea of Ginta and Shunran being together. When you have a nice, kind-hearted, hilarious, and sweet soul like Ginta pair up with someone as mischievous, spirited, vivacious, and cheeky like Shunran, it can actually make for a really adorable yet plausible pairing. At first, they might not agree on a lot of things and may have their own trust issues, but as soon as he sees Shunran in danger, I can imagine Ginta bucking up and saving her. Through time, they will actually grow to like each other, in spite of how different they are with Ginta being a wolf youkai and Shunran being a panther youkai. They will very much challenge and break the system, thus running off together. Plus, I am sure they will have a lot of great interactions with Ginta thinking that Shunran is cute, bubbly, and fun-loving and Shunran thinking that Ginta is hilarious, strong, and charming. With Ginta’s outfit, it is a variation of his trademark one in the anime though I did make a few changes to expose parts of his chest and torso. In terms of his personality, I see him being a lot more independent and strong while still being the gentle, goofy, and kind soul that he’s always been. Plus, he has beefed up a bit as he got older. With Shunran, I made a variation on her outfit while still keeping her trademark colors, as well as the…

Happy Easter, once again. Antoni, here, with another Inuyasha fanfic recommendation. This time I will be taking a look at Twenty Truths: My Daughter written by NalaxSimba and published on April 19, 2014. It’s rated T. It’s in English. It’s Family/Romance and the main pairing is Kohaku and Rin. Sesshoumaru is made to be Rin’s adoptive father, Jaken is still present as his lackey, and Inuyasha, Kouga, Ayame, and Kagome are mentioned. This fanfic is told in twenty themes chronicling Rin’s childhood, teenhood, and adulthood. So, I would say she ages from being 8 to 14 to 18 to her early 20’s. Out of all the Inuyasha couples, I truly love Kohaku and Rin when they are together. What makes them compatible as a couple is that they are not obnoxious with their bickering and squabbling, and they truly, genuinely, and purely care for each other. Sure, they may have been kids, with Kohaku being 11 years old and Rin being 8 years old, but they are a breath of fresh air compared to the whole soap opera antics that Inuyasha, Kikyo, and Kagome get themselves into. I support Kohaku and Rin as a couple then and I still support them to this very day. There is an innocence and radiance that these two have together. Whether it would be on the TV show or in fan works, they shine all thanks to the potential they have to grow as a couple to the point where I mark them as my OTP next to Inuyasha/Ayame, Ginta/Shunran, Miroku/Sango, Sesshoumaru/Kagome, and Shippo/Souten. When it comes to Sesshoumaru and Rin, I do not see them as a romantic couple in the slightest. First of all, Sesshoumaru is much more experienced and older than the youthful Rin, given that he appears to be about nineteen. In fact, I see their relationship as more of father and daughter. Think about it for a second. Rin was an orphan, whose parents and brother’s lives were lost to marauders. Surely, this experience would traumatize many a child. That is until she met an injured Sesshoumaru does she start to look up to him and admire him in a platonic way. She was then initially killed by Kouga’s wolves and Sesshoumaru used his Tenseiga to save her life. From there she has become his traveling companion and the way I interpret this is, he finally found an adoptive daughter through Rin, giving his own brand of discipline. In my mind, I always love to pair Sesshoumaru with Kagome, as he has Rin as his adoptive daughter and she has Shippou as an adoptive son. If they were to marry, then Rin would be the big sister to Shippou, thus making one strong family, with Sesshoumaru as the stern, disciplinarian, yet well-meaning father to his children, Kagome as the nurturing, strong-willed mother, Rin as the jolly, respectable, and loving older sister, and Shippou as her adorable little brother. Along the way, Sesshoumaru and Kagome will end up giving birth to little hanyos, making their family a little more exciting. Once Kohaku marries Rin and Shippou marries Souten, they will have kids of their own, thus making Sesshoumaru and Kagome grandparents in their 30s yet still mentally and physically active. Come to think of it, this calls for a fanart idea on my part. With all of this rambling aside, let’s get on to what I thought about the story. Ever since Rin has been living with Sesshoumaru, Jaken, and Ah-Un, she has become his adoptive daughter. He does things like buy kimonos, wrapping her under his mokomoko on frosty winters, and generally caring for her. That is until one fateful day that Rin had to live in Kaede’s village surrounded by humans. Rin comes of age and dates Kohaku, and being the stern father Sesshoumaru wants to ensure that her beau will keep his daughter safe, which is the same policy he gives him all the way up to marriage. By and large, this story is a very down-to-earth, simple, genuine, and lovely look into Rin’s family life with Sesshoumaru, Jaken, and Ah-Un. Even more so, this is a coming of age story of Rin’s journey from childhood to teenhood to womanhood. I dare not spoil the ending, but sufficed to say, it will leave one with tears of joy by how everything wraps up in a poignant, beautiful, and lovely way. The characters that really stole the show for me were Sesshoumaru, Kohaku, and Rin. Starting off with Sesshoumaru he does begin with his usual cold, overprotective self. However, as the story progresses he becomes slightly more understanding and compassionate not only as a father to Rin and future father-in-law to Kohaku but as a person. Kohaku starts off as a passionate and strong teenager not only in terms of his skills as a warrior but also how he persuades Sesshoumaru that he deeply loves Rin and wants to take her on a date. Eventually, in his adulthood, he proves himself as a loyal, noble husband to Rin. Rin is indubitably the main focus of this story, as this is her journey of becoming a woman. She starts off as the usually peppy and kind-hearted girl and she maintains that kindness and optimism all the way up to her adulthood. Jaken’s butt-monkey status has been thankfully reduced in this fanfic and is just the loyal servant. The other characters like Inuyasha, Kagome, Kouga, Ayame, and Kaede serve their purposes well. In terms of technicality, I did not spot one single error. Moreover, the layout is clean and well-organized. Overall, this was a touching Kohaku/Rin fanfic with Sesshoumaru as Rin’s adoptive father. Everything is so well-woven in a simple package that it comes off as charming and gentle. You know what I am going to give this fanfic. It deserves a full A+. On a technical standpoint, it’s flawless. From a narrative standpoint, it is excellent. Well, that’s all for now. Boy, taking a good look at these Inuyasha…
