@Cyoteblack - your avatar is appropriate. This manga is reminding me of a Child Called "It" a little too much right now.

Ameonna does not have a history of killing. In this manga, her origin is because she lost her own child. The manga insinuates that she kills the parents. This yokai, who is not known for empathy, started crying when she saw the abuse of this child and took him in. She could've took them across the Sanzu alive. She could've drowned them in the Sanzu trapping them between life and death!! She could've handed them directly to Yama!

@Cyoteblack Because what you were describing is the personality of the rain woman. If she has it in her to torture strangers for a year, it's highly unlikely that tendency would be limited to only the parents of the kid. No, if she was prone to such impulses and deeds, anyone could be the target. Violent people are violent people. Period. Being a youkai allowed her to slay the failure parents, presumably, but that's an entirely different thing from prolonged torture. You don't want to associate with people who think nothing of torture. Take my word for it.

Are....are you...are you being serious??? Or drunk?? Who was talking about the kid being tortured??!!

@Cyoteblack What you are saying is that if the kid disappoints the new mom in some way at some point, it would be okay for the kid to be tortured as well. Quite a morbid look at the series.

She's already a youkai so it doesn't matter. A child shouldn't understand begging nor should they feel that taking a bath is a cold and dark experience.

There are youkai in Japanese mythology that do far worse.

@Cyoteblack Who should have? It wouldn't be good if the kid was adopted by a monster who tortures people for fun for a year before killing them. Assuming she did, it's better it was swiftly done and forgotten.

"I thought the bath was a cold, dark, and scary place."

Should've kept the parents alive and tortured them over a full year

Congrats on your new, weird mom, kid.

@Trov we don't know that, it was never confirmed how the parents died. I think it was her as well but I wouldn't be surprised if there was a twist.

I think the kid killed his parents.

I am still wondering about the underlying plot here.

Considering the horror I just read about today, I wish this was a thing that truly could happen. Those that are willing to care for the abused receive so little thanks and recognition.
