If anyone hasn't been reading up on the manga, here's where you can find out what's going on.
I'm here to ask you all about--the backstory behind Tenseiga and Tessaiga! It's a mammoth of a topic, but it's been driving me insane. What was Takahashi's intent on the whole matter?? What was Inupapa's? How do you interpret all the treatment Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha have gotten in relation with their swords?
Even with all that's been going on, I am very reluctant to accept Sesshoumaru actually being gipped by his father just because he "favored" Inuyasha. I don't think Rumiko *made* Inupapa to be cast in that sort of negative light, nor do I think Sesshoumaru deserves be pitied/bashed for his current actions. I think there is an answer to all of this
What do you guys think?
