Youkai are pure, humans lose their pureness with time

Well, it's about NOT eating humans technically.

I don't know which is more unsettling; whitewashing or exaggerating the fact that youkai eat humans?
We see the former here. If anyone wants to read the latter...well, a certain artist's name has already been dropped by an above comment.

Whitewashing??

I think they mean ignoring canon since there isn't much in the way of replacing other cultures or peoples with white people in this story.

I think he means macking light of

Whitewashing is not a term about race, you can whitewash black money after all

So in fairly cartain that he is just Disturbed by how casually they talk about eating people

Just for clarification, what I meant by whitewashing was not related to race, more towards the definition of "...a deliberate attempt to conceal unpleasant or incriminating facts about a person..."

Now, I wouldn't go as far as to say that the author "conceals" facts because that sounds unnecessarily aggressive towards the author who did nothing wrong.

But canonically, Rumia eats people.
Denying that important part of her nature makes me wonder if this portrayed character is really Rumia.
Glossing over the human-eating aspect or talking about it casually is fine. It provides insight into the character.
But making as if it never happened is another thing. To say that Rumia never ate anyone ever since becoming the Youkai of Darkness...that goes against canon, isn't it?

If the story was about her trying to abstain I wouldn't say anything due to my somewhat hypocritical belief that adding onto the canon and developing it is fine but taking away from it doesn't work very well.

Again, no offense intended to anyone. I'm just clarifying what I meant.

Interesting take on Rumia's backstory. Clashes a bit with Reimu's way of killing anything that becomes a youkai as well, since village humans aren't allowed to.

Interesting take on Rumia, I kinda like it.

Like mentioned before, it's pretty derivative with canon since eating people is one of Rumia's main trait, but the manga is pretty good. The opening banter is nice, backstory's cool, and the art is pleasing for the eye, Overall 9/10 from me.

Maybe previous Hakurei is a bit more loose? Reimu seems to take the rule pretty seriously despite her being who she is, but other Hakurei might not. They don't exactly have anyone to answer to after all.

'deviating from' is more like it.
