  • Ok, this was an eye opener. I think this will put a hold on thier feelings, for quite sometime in the future.

    Ok, this was an eye opener. I think this will put a hold on thier feelings, for quite sometime in the future. When kogame went through the barrier that kiko had, kogame when up to kiko while she was sleeping on the tree. She woke up and ask where is inuyasha and she said she came alone, and than she bound her to the tree and said you will not interfere and made her invisibile so inuyasha couldnt see her. Than inuyasha arrived and told her how he felt about kiko and how he never forgot about here and think of her everyday. Eventually kogame snapped inuyasha out of it and kiko left, but than kogame told him she saw everything. And she told him your going to have to find the sacred jewel shards yourself and was going back to her time.moreless
  • In this Episode, just when Kagome and Inuyasha start to get along, Kagome gets her heart ripped out of her and served to Sango...and all she can do is watch it happenmoreless

    Kagome and Inuyasha start to fall in love, a suspense that has been building for many episodes now, and its all been released into one episode. this episode can change anybody's mind on Inuyasha, from sweetheart to two-timer. I myself have now develpoed a complete hatred for Kikyo. its impossible to say exactly how Kagome feels, but im sure i wouldn't wanna be feeling it. Kikyo is out for revenge, she hides Kagome in the shadows and kisses Inuyasha before forcing him to proceed into the depths of hell.

    After this Kagome chooses to return back to her home in the present era, but she doesn't leave she hears a conversation involving Inuyasha, Miroku and Shippo talking about which girl he would choose. Obviously Kagome didn't like the idea.moreless
  • this episode was about kikyo and inuyasha kissing which made me so mad well kagome finds kikyo and inuyasha comes to find kikyo then doesnt see kagome and they kisss and kagome gets upset and inuyasha feels kind of sorry for her so she tells him to sit .moreless

    this was so messed up kagome should have been the one to kiss inuyasha not kikyo i don't like her she needs to stay out of inuyasha 's life kagome needs to kiss inuyasha kikyo just needs to die and go away forever i just dont like her and it was to much drama for kagome to see it but it was funny wen she told inuyasha to sit because she was mad and he tried to follow her it was just rele funny but i hope that they make another movie and episodes i would be so happy .moreless
  • Alot of drama, but it was still an excellent episode....

    In this episode, Kagome finally realizes her true feelings for Inuyasha. Before, Kagome had sympothized with Inuyasha and his relationship with Kikyo. But now, Kagome gets hurt by Inuyasha's actions and becomes jealous of Kikyo. I feel bad for all three of them. I feel bad for Kagome because she loves Inuyasha, but he doesn't return her feelings they way she wants him to. And Inuyasha's issue is that he can't accept the fact that Kikyo is dead ( and he feels that it was his fault that he didn't protect her, even though there was no way he could have ) so he is unable to move on. He seems to care alot for Kagome, but Kikyo always comes first in his eyes, whichs makes Kagome feel second-best. Kikyo, even though she was told that Inuyasha was not responsible for her death, that it was Naraku who had killed her, she still feels that she needs to take Inuyasha with her to hell because she followed him in death 50 years ago and because she died hating him ( even though he wasn't the one who killed her ) her soul cannot rest, until he is dead. It is a very Dramatic episode, and ended in Kagome returning to her own time as usual. But after all is said and done, I still sypothize with Inuyasha, Kagome, and Kikyo in diffrent ways. ( without picking favorite characters I decided to think outside the box for this review )moreless
  • Kikyo attempts to take Inuyasha down to hell with her while Kagome is paralyzing, having watch them together.

    I definitely didn't like this ep. at all, 2.0 is more than generous. It was well-written, I give it that, but I'm a huge fan of the Kagome-Inuyasha relationship. Given the time I spent with the series, I figured I'd watch this one one last time and record it for my script files so I'll never have to watch it again.

    I've grown really tolerate Kikyo over the past few months and ever like her. Here, she is just plain evil. I can't feel her caring about Inuyasha at all, it's more of a front to convince him to die like she. She wants to take him to hell with her... like Kagome said "that's not fair". She had her chance at living, so the least she can do is let Inuyasha live the good life. I can understand from his viewpoint cuz he'd be with Kikyo, but from her viewpoint, doing so is more out of revenge than being with him. After all, he was given a 2nd chance at life and still has a lot to do. She was just resurrected, but is still technically dead. I do kinda feel bad for her when Inuyasha rushes to Kagome, but the feeling doesn't last thing. If anything, I can't stand this one and only watched it to get quotes to analyze the Inu-Kikyo relationship further. I really can't stand it when Kikyo tries to hurt Inuyasha when he all can do is love her. With her cruel intentions, his heart-felt words almost disgust me, now they're echoing in my head cuz I heard them so many times. OSUWARI!moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Inuyasha: (about Kagome and Kikyo) Um, I don't suppose I could have both of them?
      Shippo: Grr! You two-timing . . .
      Miroku: Well, it's a common problem between men such as ourselves. And it's one thing to have both, but another to keep it a secret. For if either girl were to find out . . .
      Kagome: (listening in) SIT!
      Miroku: That's right, big sit.

    • Shippo: (talking to Inuyasha, who is face down in the ground) What's going on, Inuyasha? What are you doing down in the ground? Have you seen Kagome around?
      Miroku: I recognize this position, meaning Kagome must be somewhere nearby.
      Shippo: And by the depth of this hole, I'd say she's feisty as ever.

    • Miroku: Exactly what happened between you and Kikyo?
      Inuyasha: Same thing that goes on when you're with a woman.
      Miroku: Ah, ghastly! You mean you did that right in front of Kagome?
      Inuyasha: Maybe you should explain what you do with women!

    • Kikyo: Remember the feel of my lips against yours, for it was real.
