>I think Marisa sees Rinnosuke more as a segregate father figure
But she has an actual father.
Humanity isnt charming. There is nothing charming about getting old you idiot. You get weaker, uglier, more disease and pain, shit like dementia. So you think being an invalid who shits themself and cant remember family while their hands hurt like fuck from arthritis is charming?
There is a reason I will an hero by 60, and it's because I dont want to be old. Humanity is shit, it means being limited. Alice is just like a human, only stronger due to not wasting time sleeping or eating, she can if she wishes. No worries about age, and potential god tier regeneration. If you include Ran and Yukari's intelligence, then I would say youkai shit all over humans. Hermits, magicians, gods, everything is better than humans. Excluding hourai beings who I pity. Totally fucked after heat death of the universe.
