HI!!!! I noticed that quite a few fics example: sesshoumaru age, Human Years :24 Demon years: (some really high number like 2000)
Should it not be the opposite? cause demons live longer? what do you guys think?
this concept is based around the inuyasha 3rd movie.
When/if you've seen it, its about this 3rd Sword of inu-papa's that was supposed to have been sealed for 700 years before it would awaken again. Problem is it wakes up in Kagome's time. Which leads us to believe that Inupapa died 200 years before the inuyasha anime/manga takes place in the fuedal era.
that being said, in the 3rd movie, Sesshomaru looks all of 17 at best, while he looks maybe 19 years old max in the anime/manga feudal era time frame. (which is 200 years later) in this OVA.
So in 200 years Sess has only aged up what looks to be about 2 years. If 2 years of age = 200 years of actually time, then if he's 17 looking the idea is that he's be about 1700 years old. or something to that effect.
Some people argue this a lot, saying that b/c of the 3rd movie inuyasha (who was born when his father died) is 200 years old, minus his sleeping time makes him 150 = 15, which is how old he looks. BUT the 3rd movie is NOT canon, and Rumiko Takahashi(the creator) didn't have much to do with it other then making sure that inupapa's face was obscured so that we couldn't see it without screen-shoting.
She also did say much as to giving them names either, Sessmomma, and inupapa both still don't have official names, Sessmomma is only referred to as 'Lady Mother' in both anime and manga, and inupapa, was given the name 'Touga' by the production crew not RT. RT leaves a lot open to the imagination that's why inuyasha's one of the easier manga's to really go wild with fandiction wise.
Hope that answers your question.
Oddly enough now that i thik about it at the way most people think abotu ti b/c of the 3rd movie,
Sess ages 1 'demon year' = 100 human years while
Inu ages 1 'hanyou year' = 10 human years.
but thats' basically how it looks, again though none of the aging stuff is canon. RT really didnt want there to be an exact timeline, that's why there's so many possibilities with this show/manga
