*** Besides, his slaughter of a couple of villages by way of a pack of wolves and attempt to feed a small child to said wolf would probably be more likely to get him in trouble with the authorities long before Kagome could file a sexual harassment claim against him.

** Also keep in mind that Koga ISN'T a modern character--he's from feudal Japan. He probably hits on and pursues dozens of pretty girls [[ImAManICantHelpIt just because he feels like it,]] not because he cares about them or respects them as people.

* One of the major conflicts in the series is that Inu Yasha can't let go of his love for either Kikyou or Kagome, which is justified by the fact that they are essentially the same person in different circumstances. However, every time Koga ever runs into Kikyou, he shows absolutely no interest in her whatsoever. Yeah, she attacked him when they first met, but even Koga admitted that it was in an attempt to save him from being sacrificed to Naraku by Midoriko's will. How strong is his love for Kagome again?

*** She does smell like Kagome (plus bones and graveyard soil and minus modern shampoo/soap/etc., admittedly; Inu Yasha had to take a more focused whiff to realize that they weren't one and the same, per se.), and, despite Takahashi's art style, looks almost identical to Kagome, going by Kaede's, Inu Yasha's, Muso's and that one monk who saw his master get (accidentally) killed by Kikyo's reaction to seeing Kagome for the first time. Though admittedly, he never really got to know Kikyo before she died and got a metric ton of angst shoved into her.
*** There's no way that she smells like Kagome at all. She smells like bones and graveyard soil. Just about every character with super-smell says so. The last time Inu Yasha smelled Kikyo at the time was when she was alive, which is why he said they smelled alike. She may look like Kagome though, at least face-wise. This troper admits to thinking that they were sisters when he was younger. And of course she doesn't act like Kagome. Kagome's personality is one of the things Koga likes about her.

** There's no real reason to expect Koga to have an interest in Kikyou just because he's interested in Kagome, because Kikyou and Kagome are ''not the same person''. There are physical similarities and they have the same power due to Kagome being Kikyou's reincarnation, but in terms of personality they are very different people. Inuyasha is torn between the two of them not because Kagome is Kikyou reincarnated but because the time he spent with each of them, Kikyou before her death and Kagome later on, led him to fall in love with each of them on their own merits. While I also don't think that Koga's feelings for Kagome were ever very serious, his attitude towards Kikyou doesn't signify much either way.

* During the final battle, [[spoiler: Youkai Inu Yasha gets possessed by Magatsushi and throws away Tessaiga. Sesshoumaru is forced to fight him with just claws and Tenseiga because even a scratch from Bakusaiga would destroy Inu Yasha, which is just what Naraku wants. However, no one seems to notice that its quite possible that Sesshoumaru might have qualified to use Tessaiga at that point since he was there to save Rin, he'd been protecting Kagome throughout the fight, and seemed to honestly want to save Inu Yasha. Of course, its possible that Sesshoumaru noticed it but didn't want to rely on his father's momento anymore... or admit that he was concerned about Inu Yasha's life, even tacitly.]]

*** IIRC, Shippou has handled it without any problem (as has Toutousai and Inu no Taishou, but as its creator and original bearer/source, its feasible that they are immune), although he couldn't use it, and its link to Inu Yasha, shown ability to hold back its full power depending on how hard you swung the blade, and its ability to absorb youki, would all have made it a better alternative to just punching.

*** The barrier was never explained. How it works can only be inferred by who could touch it. Hanyous could touch it (Inuyasha and Naraku). Humans could touch it (Kagome, Sango, Sesshoumaru with a human arm, a bandit who had just attacked a village, etc.). Youkai can't (Sesshoumaru and Gatenmaru) with the exception being Totosai. And Naraku, Sesshoumaru (at the time) and the bandit definitely didn't care about humans.

*** Dragonscale Tessaiga has explicitly shown the ability to cure youkai possession by absorbing the possessing soul without harming the possessed one (yeah, the one time IY used it that way was on a human, but Dragonscale Tessaiga has also explicitly been shown to be capable of absorbing human ki as well -- a brand of human ki which normally harms youkai, for that matter), and Tessaiga possesses a very powerful barrier. Not to mention that Sesshoumaru only withheld Bakusaiga because it was impossible to use without killing Inu Yasha -- he never indicated that he had any problems with the idea of injuring/weakening him since he was pretty sure that he could kill Naraku by himself as soon as Rin was safe.
** Sesshoumaru has demonstrated his ability to use Tessaiga in a pinch, even in spite of its barrier (at least in two instances which are admittedly not canon to the manga: "The Woman Who Loved Sesshoumaru" and ''Swords of an Honorable Ruler''). However, he's an enormously proud and stubborn bastard and by that point in the plot he's long since decided he doesn't want Tessaiga. Which means he simply won't lower himself to try to use it, even if that means having to fight possessed!Inuyasha with his bare hands.
* And of course, the ending, where [[spoiler: Inu Yasha and Kagome were separated for three years because she subconsciously was afraid to go to the past and somehow canceled the time-powers of the Bone Eater's well, and apparently was only able to use it one last time to stay with Inu Yasha in the past. The same Inu Yasha who had gained the power to cut holes all the way into her time period at will during the final battle.]]

* When Kikyou first appeared, she wanted to drag [=InuYasha=]'s soul into hell with hers, so they they could be together forever. Considering Kikyou's soul is reincarnated in Kagome then if she dies her soul should go back into Kagome. That would mean [=InuYasha=] would basically be giving up his life to be alone in hell. [[SarcasmMode What a brilliant idea.]]
** Well, ''that'' Kikyo didn't really have a soul. She was a reanimated corpse. And it didn't really seem like she was dragging [=InuYasha=]'s soul to hell, just him entirely. Did she even like [=InuYasha=] at that point in time, though? I thought she was dragging him to hell to leave him there to get her revenge and only said that they were going to be together forever in order to convince him.

*** It really looked as though she was in full out Yandere mode at that point, especially considering the conversation she had with Kagome prior to it, the kiss she gave Inu Yasha, and sad look she gave him when he went to save Kagome. Still, there's really no indication that Kagome would have gotten her soul fragment (she did manage to keep Kagome from pulling all her soul back into her during their first encounter) back unless Kikyou wanted her to, especially considering how ridiculously skilled Kikyou was at spiritual magics; [[spoiler:Even after she did die for good, her soul wasn't shown to go back to Kagome, and at least some portion of her will and power was residing in Kohaku's shard to act as an anti-Naraku booby trap until it sacrificed itself to save him instead.]]

** At the time, Kikyou wasn't willing to listen even when Miroku flat out told her what had happened and they think that she's dead at the end of that. After that point, Kikyou gets the full story from Kaede and starts her various machinations, at which point no one knows where she is. As for not doing anything about her Yandere actions, the problem is that Inu Yasha won't think of acting against her after their history together, and none of them are even remotely capable of finding her unless she wants to be found. Especially when considering that she can casually generate a barrier that none of them can notice and only Kagome can bypass, and Kikyou can generally shut her down at will unless Kagome gets really pissed off.

** I always interpreted the song as Izayoi singing to Inu-Yasha's dead father. That way, it seems as if she's reminiscing on the time they had together and assuring herself that they'll be together again someday. Thus, I heard "I'll be alright" as referring to herself alone, and "We'll be alright" as referring to her and Inu-Yasha.

* What does Sesshoumaru eat? When he met [[MoralityPet Rin,]] Sesshoumaru said he doesn't eat human food. We never see him eat in-series and his mother even wonders about it.
** Specifically, what his mother wonders is not ''what'' he eats but whether or not he's keeping Rin and Kohaku around as snacks. However, judging by the painting of Inu no Taisho that's shown the first few times he's mentioned in the series, it's more likely that Sesshoumaru eats large animals such as cattle. Whole.

* Perhaps unintentional, but both Inuyasha and Sesshomaru turning out to be, at various paces and to different degrees, inherently good, and caring greatly for humans/a human, may similarily stem from the fact that they're ''dog'' youkai. Dogs are ''man's best friend'', aren't they?

* Kikyo and Inuyasha's romance is so important that it is the PRIME driving force behind the story. The TV anime not only focuses on expanding this more than any other story elements, even adding a recap one hour episode on their love story. That adaptation frequently shows Inuyasha and Kikyo along the rest of the cast to a lesser extent lamenting on how if Naraku didn't interfere, Inuyasha would have lived happily ever after with Kikyo after using the Shikon no Tama is purified though a wish for Inuyasha to become a pure human. Turns out [[spoiler: not only that the Shikon granting wishes is a complete lie in the first place and the wisher instead being trapped inside the jewel to fight Yokais for all eternity and the jewel will survive for the next era]]. So with despite how much the two lovers regrets that Naraku had to get into their romance and considering how fragile their relationship is revealed as when they quickly turned on each other by Naraku's manipulation, if things had gone as they planned, one can only imagine how strained their relationship would be after they discover the truth......... We're not even counting what would have happened to Miroku, Sango, and the rest of the cast.

** Maybe the fact that its likely pruned regularly (to keep branches from falling off and such) as well as being kept in the middle of a bright and heavily maintained shrine grounds instead of just surrounded by wild undergrowth in a dark forest, just makes it look fresher and neater.




to:

** Considering that Naraku ''is'' a consummate shape shifter who uses false identities and cat's paws at every occasion, can render his castles impossible to track, and is barely known in his own timeline despite being active for fifty years, so it may just be that Future Naraku was behind the scenes/hibernating/using one or more different names/moved to another country/etc... over the course of a few centuries.



** Or he'd be [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Jacob]]... Maybe it's a wolf thing? Regardless, his affections are just a [[PlayedForLaughs gag routine]] to annoy Inuyasha after the first few encounters; he likes Kagome, and despite being attracted to her, completely lacks genuine love for her.

* Viewing the show as a teenager, Koga wasn't too bad. Viewing the show years later as an adult, the guy's actually pretty scary. Here's a guy that's in love with a girl (who, to his knowledge, already has a boyfriend), or at least says he is as there doesn’t appear to be much of a bond. The girl has told him over and over “I don't like you that way, I like this other guy, you and me are just friends”, which he then proceeds to flat-out ''ignore''. Koga is ether unaware or unwilling to admit that Kagome is just not interested in him that way, completely disregards her lack of consent, still hits on her and pretty much stalks her and he's said a handful of times that he'll murder Inuyasha after which he expects her consent? If this took place in modern times, the man would be slammed with criminal charges at the very least!

* Although the majority of Naraku and Kagome's interactions are not long or particularly important to the plot [[spoiler: aside from when Kagome confronts him about his true wish on the Shikon no Tama]], Naraku understands that Kagome is from the future, at least as Kikyo's reincarnation. However, it never dawns on any of the characters that Naraku is not a figure feared - or even known - in Kagome's future, meaning that Naraku is ultimately doomed to fail and fade into oblivion.
