Okay, fans of Inuyasha, how do you define Rin and Sesshomaru's relationship? It seems obvious that Sesshomaru loves her, but what kind of love do they have? Do you think that their love is more parent-child or budding romance? Both? Neither?
Platonic Father-Child/Companion sort of thing. Honestly, I saw it as him keeping her around as a bubbly pet at first out of some misplaced obligation to keep an eye on her. Then developing into a platonic companionship.
I don't always feel comfortable with shippers of SessRin but I bid them no ill will either. Interpretation can go a long way in instances like this.
I dont even think romance came across Rin's mind.
As for Sesshomaru I think originally he had her around because the Tensegia told him to save her. But he grew attached to her, and wanted to protect her like... a father or a brother. It's a family love, but not a romance love. But I dont think he sees her "like a daughter".
I'm fine for any relationship of theirs really. Father/daughter, sister/brother, or in a romantic relationship. I can't really see Seshomaru falling in love with anybody, and that Rin will be one of the few people he has any real feelings for, and after a while I think (if the show went that far) that their relationship would develop more
From what I read online that Sesshomaru is more of a father figure towards Rin. He protects her like she protects him when he was wounded. I don't think Sesshomaru doesn't want to be in any sort of relationship with anyone especially with a human, and he doesn't want to be weak when his loved ones are in danger
