Those familiar with Inuyasha and/or Japanese: I have a question about translation?
I’m curious about the translation of demon. It seems to me like there are the big, scary demons and then there are demons and half-demons that are more like people with special powers. I want to know if the translation is off and if a different word is used to describe characters like Shasshamaru and Koga vs. the obvious demons like Naraku and the others.
Are they all just varying degrees of evil, but all demons, or are there separate words to describe each?
And if there are different words, what is Inuyasha?
