Kagome finds herself fallen down an old temple well into the past, to be specific Japan’s ancient past. As she gets a grip of her new world, she is taken by villagers into a village as a prisoner. An old woman looks at Kagome and sees the resemblance of her sister who died fifty years ago. A centipede woman creature is after Kagome who had the Shikon Pearl. A pearl wanted by all demons for the power can make the user stronger. In order to save the world, she has to release InuYasha. A half demon who wants the pearl but he also wants to destroy the demonic woman. Kagome releases him and he takes down the first demon. Bound by Kagome’s will, she can control InuYasha. A crow demon is after Kagome for the infamous pearl. Somehow when she was trying to take down the crow demon, she does it but also shatters the pearl into millions of pieces. The old woman tasks them to go retrieve all the pieces of the world. She wants to leave this world and go back home because she doesn’t want to live in this realm. As she leaves, another demon comes into play to wreak destruction. InuYasha comes to the current realm that Kagome exists in and demands her to come back to save the other realm. Kagome makes the toughest decision.
I had seen this all over the place on the internet. Also, my best friend watches the anime and I saw that they also have a manga series. I grew curious and curiosity got the best of me in the good way. I enjoyed reading this manga novel. I had only found the three in one so I grouped them all together into one and just didn’t go into too much detail. I already am in love with InuYasha. Kagome is alright but I am only here for InuYasha to go along this journey with him. The artwork is really amazing and creepy when the demons are drawn. I know a lot of people will probably ask me if I ship Kagome and InuYasha and all I can say is we will see. I only read the first three volumes. I know this is also an anime series and I will be watching the series as well. I do recommend this manga series for sure because I am in love from the first chapter.
