Kanji and meanings of Toge’s name

Inumaki Toge is a unique character who speaks only the names of rice ball fillings. Does his name express something? Let’s see it together!

INU – dog

Inu written in kanji

Inu means a dog. We have some kanji characters that stand for a dog and this is one of them.

This one originally meant a small dog, but the meaning was almost lost and we don’t use this kanji for general dogs.

This letter reminds me of Komainu and Tengu, rather than normal dogs.

Komainu is a god messenger dog and we can see it at Japanese Shinto shrines. They are sitting at the gate as guardians.

Tengu is a Japanese demon with a long nose and wings. Wearing They are highly intelligent and sometimes respected as a kind of gods. Tengu’s GU is another reading of this INU character.
