Kagome annoys me NOT SORRY

InuYasha 3: 3 volumes in 1, 7-10,  – Rumiko Takahashi 

Fantasy, older teen, manga, fiction. 

Rating 9/10

Kagome got caught in the middle of a fight between InuYasha and his brother, Sasshomaru. In the midst of anger and annoyance for Kagome, always interfering InuYasha throws her back into the well into her own time so he can deal with the demons and collect the Shikon pearl shards himself. He is really badly injured when more demons are sent to him by Naraku and Shippo tries to get the well unclogged so that Kagome can come back. Kagome is angry with InuYasha for tossing her aside when he truly needed her help. She goes about her life as usual in her own time until she feels the Shikon’s presence. She goes back to the well and tries to get into the well. When she does, she returns to a fight scene and a really injured InuYasha with the monk trying to fight off a demon. She steps in and helps out. Kikyo’s soul and body is roaming once more and she wants InuYasha but traps Kagome so that she doesn’t stop her. InuYasha sees Kikyo and wants to help her. Kagome witnesses InuYasha proclaim his love for Kikyo and is furious. So furious she breaks Kikyo’s spell and confronts InuYasha. Both don’t want to admit their feelings for each other but its obvious when they go on the next adventure that they work well together. 

So… I have mixed feelings. I know Kagome is the main character but I hate her. She annoys me and not only that but she is easily annoyed by anything and everything. I was so glad that InuYasha practically yeeted her into her own time. She was always getting in the way and getting injured. Anyways I really am getting deep into this fandom and I just can’t wait to get my hands on the next omnibus. I am super invested and I really want to get into this further to see what happens with Kagome and InuYasha plus the fact that his other love interest Kikyo is alive and is a wandering soul is making things more spicy. I am glad and thankful to have gotten into this series thanks to my best friend. I am also watching the anime as well and that is good too so yeah. Can’t wait to read more.

protect the students from the villains

My Hero Academia Vol.3 – Kohei Horikoshi

Heroes, villains, crime fighting, drama, comedy, manga, school, fiction.

Rating 7/10

During the fight on the USJ building, where the U.A. students were training at, All Might comes to fight. No one knows why but All Might know why. He is a target for his quirk that only a few people know and are aware of his quirk. The fight goes to the extreme and gets easier once the Pro-Heroes and teachers come to help the fight. The villains escape and retreat. After the students are transported out and to hospitals to be looked over, luckily only a few injuries. The school board and police work together to attempt to make the school safe to protect the students. The principal mentions the Sports Festival. All Might pulls Midoriya over to tell him to make himself an image during the Sports Festival, because there are a lot of prospective sponsors and groups looking at them to decide to make offers with the students who perform excellently. Midoriya and his classmates get ready for the Sports Festival and they find themselves wanting recognition by different companies or mentors.

I found this manga to be alright, mostly fight scenes and the whole sports festival story arc. So not that bad, just not my thing. There are plenty of good character interactions and some character development. I do find the sports festival to be a little distracting, but this helps with the plot because the students need to find mentors to further their academics and such. I just love the artwork because they really get into detail and the facial features of Bakugo really are fitting for his character. He is one of my favorites, despite his anger issues. Totally lovable. Just saying. It’s my best friend’s fault, she introduced me, and I fell into a deep hole of severe obsession and so did my boyfriend. Anyways, the writing is good and the artwork, as I said before, is equally great which is essential when it comes to reading manga in general.
