The Big Questions - Inuyasha

Still having intermittent moments of sqeee over the first episode of the new Inuyasha series and I got to thinking about some of the questions we never got answered in canon. Just about every fandom with a big following comes up with things they are dying to learn about the characters or the world and sometimes we even like the answers when we get them. When we don't we can have fun debating them.

In addition to voting please post explaining why you voted the way you did. Include as much supporting information as you want. Rant away, there are plenty of electrons to spare. I just ask that any disagreements are kept polite. I'll probably be doing more of these with other fandoms or even a second set of IY if I think of other questions. Suggestions are welcome you can email me through my profile.

Trying your hand at your own poll is highly encouraged. Just let me know so I can play too.

I believe Inuyasha's age has important implications for his relationship with Kagome. If he ages like a human, or close to it, then he can grow old with her, . If he has centuries to live then he is destined to have to listen to Queen wailing about who wants to live forever while he trudges away from her grave still a young man. What do you think?

He ages like a human, although a particularly healthy one. His behavior is that of a guy in his mid-teens and surely if he had lived for decades he would have gotten some life experience.
1(16.7%)
He's 200 (150 if he stopped aging while on the tree) the anime says so. Poor Inu.
3(50.0%)
He's even older than that.
2(33.3%)

How do youkai age anyway?

Like ElfQuest elves they age like humans until they hit puburty and then slow down. Shippou really is 6.
2(33.3%)
Slowly and steadily. It would vary by species with some aging one year for every decade and some taking even longer. Imagine the diaper bills!
1(16.7%)
Other
3(50.0%)

Sesshoumaru's relationship with Inuyasha:

He must have kept an eye on him or Inu wouldn't have survived. Those attacks at the beginning were meant as training.
1(16.7%)
Being a spoiled brat Sess really did want to kill Inu and it was only after Rin he has a change of heart.
2(33.3%)
Takahashi totally changed her mind along the way and continuity got buggered.
2(33.3%)
Points to icon.
1(16.7%)
