This chapter gave me whiplash.

When the comic began, the thought that the kid was being abused by his parents didn't even cross my mind. I had assumed that someone had killed his parents and he narrowly escaped with his life, and his wounds were from that.

Now we find out that the rain woman was the one who killed his parents. Which means that the ones who caused him those wounds were his parents. In turn that means that, when he promised to only need one meal a day and to not cry, he wasn't pulling it out of his mind.

Ugh. Still, serves them right.

@Sep10trion there's normally things portrayed as bad about being a youkai. Ravenous hunger only momentarily stopped by human flesh.
Deathly coldness that no warmth will sate.
Loss of morals.
Loss of memory.
Every night, feeling them. Your arm, your eye. Even with them lost.

To become a youkai is akin to a half life, a cursed life.

Or, that is what the legends say. Who knows, maybe they just are jealous of the youkai who live forever.

@Kneel_Breen I'm leaning towards just "Spirited Away". Or to look at it from a more Western perspective, he's eaten the food of the Fey and can never go back.

I mean, how is being turned into a youkai such a big deal? Granted, it depends on the type, but most youkai have at least a human intellect, emotions, can shapeshift into human form, and in many cases used to be human. Some even have human spouses. She’s being much too hard on herself, which isn’t good because yuurei spirits are empowered by their emotional states.

That clearly wasnt ego, it was was the chance to make that kid happy, she just needed to find that resolve

The fact that she openly admitted to killing the parents makes me doubt she killed the kid. In fact, what if the kid was already dead from the abuse of the parents and instead of letting his soul pass on to the afterlife, she instead made him turn into a ghost?

@skylerr In case you forgot, it was heavily implied that his parents beat and abused him

@theilikepie Ok, I went to the raws, and the word she used was “youkai" rather than "yuurei" so less cause for concern
