” (From Vol 1.) Kagome is a modern Japanese high school girl. Never the type to believe in myths and legends, her world view dramatically changes when, one day, she’s pulled out of herown time and into another! There, in Japan’s ancient past, Kagome discovers more t han a few of those dusty old legends are true, and that her destiny is linked to one legendary creature in particular–the dog like half-demon called Inuyasha! That same trick of fate also ties them both to the Shikon Jewel, or ” Jewel of Four Souls”. But demons beware… the smallest shard of the Shikon Jewel can give the user unimaginable power.” (Goodreads)
This series was so dang good!
I never finished reading it until now and I still have yet to ever finish the anime (but honestly after finishing reading it I really want to!). I’m just sad it’s over with.
Out of all of the mangas I have read, this has the best character development and I loved seeing the growth over each volume. I felt connected to each character. My favorite development of all was Sesshōmaru. I don’t usually like the bad boys but there was so much to love about him, especially by the end.
All of the side characters are fantastic. Each one brings something to the plot and also add to the friendship group. There are also a side relationship between two and I was here for it! I’m so glad everything worked out in the end between the two.
The relationship between Inuyasha and Kagome was a very complicated one. It’s bascially an enemies-to-lovers with love triangles, or sometimes a square, haha. It has all of the tropes I loved which is probably why I liked it so much. They go through all of the emotions that come with relationships such as jealousy, anger, and coming to terms with maybe not ending up together. They still try to work it out and be there for one another no matter what the outcome be. They will come back to each other.
This was such an emotional journey and I definitely cried a few times getting here. This book really wrecked me though.
Overall, I loved this series! It’s hard to put into words what I feel for this series. I’d highly recommend this one to any fantasy lover out there.
