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.

InuYasha is my fave

InuYasha 2: 3 Volumes in 1, 4-6 – Rumiko Takahashi

Fantasy, older teen, manga, fiction. 

Rating 10/10

Kagome and InuYasha have gained new allies as well as new enemies. Kagome gets once again kidnapped. Making InuYasha and new companion, Shippo, go and rescue her and the broken Shikon pieces from the infamous and dangerous Thunder Brothers. In an attempt to stay alive she falsified information to make herself useful. InuYasha successfully rescues her and keeps seeing Kikyo, but Kagome’s actions remind and prove to him that this is an entirely different person now. Since she wants to be helping everyone she finds herself in all sorts of danger. When an old woman named Urasue takes Kikyo’s body and resurrects her, she realizes that she needs the soul of Kikyo and sees Kagome. Urasue kidnaps Kagome and attempts to force the soul out but fails. This works when InuYasha does and now they have to reverse the damage that was caused before Kikyo tries to kill InuYasha while protecting the body of Kagome. 

I’m very invested in this series because this is amazingly written and drawn. I wish I had access or had known about this series when I was younger. The interactions between InuYasha and Kagome got me laughing. I felt more annoyed with Kagome in this manga set because she was not listening to InuYasha and got herself into some sticky situations. I enjoyed this just the same however. Shippo is an interesting character and I like to see what happens with him on their journey to collecting the Shikon crystal pieces. I love the artwork and details of some of the enemies they come across. Some artwork is really creepy but I like creepy stuff. I’m slowly collecting and reading the omnibuses because they are easier to find and I prefer this format. I can’t wait to come across the next omnibus because I really want to see what happens with Kagome and InuYasha. I feel that he is in love with Kagome but doesn’t want to admit it. I feel that maybe Kagome likes him but we will see where the plot takes us.
