mean, Inuyasha’s all like, “Until I met Kagome I never trusted a soul in this bleak world of murderous bigots, but I’m not supposed to be happy and it’s unfair to Kagome, so I gotta let her go,” even though it was established Inuyasha GETS HIS STRENGTH FROM HAVING
KAGOME BY YOUR SIDE YA DINGUS, HAVE YOU LEARNED NOTHING?!
He seriously says he’s not supposed to know joy (in Japanese, dunno about other dubs). Inuyasha actually chose to repay a debt (Kikyo) over happiness (Kagome). I know Kikyo’s death is recent for him since he just woke up, but I swear his abandonment issue is messing with his life choices.
Or survivor’s guilt? The world may never know. What we do know is sometimes that boy thinks things through as much as a hyperactive puppy.
A stray puppy, in fact. He grew up in his mom’s fancy house until he was orphaned and then forced to live in the wild…OK, I made myself sad.
And then Kagome’s like, “It’s impossible for me to come into Inuyasha’s heart. Still, I can’t forget him, so I’ll stay by his side and put myself through constant peril because I want him to be happy,” even though his daily actions indicate he’s

GET HIM ON A FUCKING COUCH AND LET HIM EXPERIENCE A THERAPY SESSION OF THE CENTURY BECAUSE THAT BOY NEEDS TO LEARN ABOUT HEALTHY LIFE CHOICES! MAKE HIM SHUT UP AND BE HAPPY –
– sorry, I’ve been re-watching old episodes. Found my VHS recordings…from way back in 2000…when I was living in Japan. I’m old.
A wise decision, Shippo.
Those stubborn fools put us on a wild roller coaster of emotions.
But I guess their consideration for the other is what makes them good partners.
And partnership is important in a relationship.
They bicker but they accept everything about the other like the partners they are.
Kagome is more about treating his physical and mental injuries, while Inuyasha is usually about active protection and behaving like a watchdog, but I love it when they switch roles. No matter what, she’s got his back and he’s got hers.
Papercraft Kagome and Kikyo! I’ve wanted to try this for a while - the idea of two characters with the same (but reversed) silhouette, using some of the same patterns for both. And of course it seemed fitting to try it with them. :D
They’re for sale, my lovelies! Drop me an ask or a chat if you’re interested. Sold!
