Geeky Things//Inuyasha

Hey guys!

SPOILERS AHEAD. Proceed at your own risk. Also, pictures are not mine.  

This month is actually planned out and has a theme! Yay! I'll be bringing out the geek in me this month. This week I'll be focusing on the anime, Inuyasha which was one of my favorite animes when I was younger. 

"The series follows Kagome Higurashi, a 15-year-old girl from Tokyo who is transported to the Sengoku period after falling into a well in her family shrine, where she meets the half-demon Inuyasha. When a monster from that era tries to take the magical Shikon Jewel embodied in Kagome, she accidentally shatters the Jewel into many pieces that are dispersed across Japan. Inuyasha and Kagome start traveling to recover it before the powerful demon Naraku finds all the shards. Inuyasha and Kagome gain several allies during their journey namely Shippo, Miroku, Sango, and Kirara" (Source)

I was really into how the protagonist Kagome, found herself with responsibilities that no normal middle schooler would want. She was kind, but assertive which really set her apart in the show. She not only accepted her responsibility in putting the Shikon back together, but did her hardest to protect the people she loved.

Sango is a demon slayer. 

She took care of Shippo (below), who lost both his parents and helped Sango (above) realize who really took her family from her. Sango become a sister to her with Shippo as her adoptive son.

Shippo is a fox demon. 
Miroku becomes almost like an advisor for her during times where she is clueless of the current traditions. Inuyasha is the 'protector' of the group despite not wanting to have one. They all become a close, tightknit family regardless of how different they all are. 

Miroku is a cursed priest.

Inuyasha is a half-demon.

There's not only action, but comedy and romance in the series. There's family fueds where Inuyasha and his older, full demon brother Sesshomaru go all out, but also come together when the need arises. One central plotline is the love triangle between Inuyasha, Kagome, and Kikyo. Kikyo was a protector of the Shikon Jewel, but died to get it away from those who intended to use it for nefarious purposes. Kagome is said to be her reincarnation, creating an interesting love triangle. Ship whoever you want in the manga, if you want to disregard the ending, be my guest! (That's what I do!) Although I love the manga and anime, the end felt so unfulfilling. 

I do like Inuyasha, he's a great guy, but I really feel Kagome deserved better. He acts like a child who Kagome has to look after. He does mature, however, after everything he's done, I couldn't see Kagome with him despite how it seemed everyone was pushing them together. She would've "sit" him to death. But I'll get into my OTP (One True Pairing) in this anime later this week.

That's it for today! Thanks for reading!
