* 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!

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

**** I think this troper was asking about if ''Koga'' and Kagome mate and, yes, their kids would be half-demons but seeing how much Koga dislikes Inuyasha I think he was just taking every opportunity to insult him.

* Is it just me, or does the Sacred Tree look a lot younger in modern day (smaller, neater root system) then it does in feudal Japan (much larger, upturned roots)? Is it like Merlin? Does it age backwards?

backwards?




to:

* 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.

* 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.

* For a long while, I was trying to figure out why Namie Amuro's "Four Seasons" was played at the ending of {{Inuyasha}}'s third movie. It was a sweet song and all, but it didn't seem like it fit with the movie. The song, if anything, was like a love song ... And maybe it was suppose to be. The main villain Takemaru was in love with Inuyasha's mother Izayoi, but she had chosen Inuyasha's father instead. There was first part of the song translated that said "The sweet darkness I find/fumbling around deep in my memories/I can taste the sweetness of the past/Although you're not anywhere/I'll be all right." This could be talking about the love he had for her and the love he continued to have, even [[spoiler: up until his death]]. Another way to look at it is the love between Inuyasha's mother and father. The second part of the song seemed to be more dedicated towards them. "If feelings again happened that way/We'll be all right/If I just believe/No matter how far away you are/Stay with me." Note at how the first part had "I'll be all right" compared to "We'll be all right" in the second one.

** That's not the worst part... The Soul Piper is stated to be made from the souls of ghost children itself so likelyhood that majority of the Ghost Children sent to Hell have become apart of it is exceedingly high!

** Inuyasha and Kagome's attraction at first seems rather arbitrary (ignoring her supposed resemblance to Kikyo) and for the sake of the plot. However, it becomes a little more plausible when one considers that they are both misfits to the show's world, at least the Feudal Era. Inuyasha is a half-demon, a perpetual outcast, a mistake of nature, what have you. Kagome comes from an entirely different ''time-period'' and buy all accounts should not be there even by the in-universe rules. Going further on her end, the time-travel and unique experiences brought on by her adventures also singles her out in her own world. Like Inuyasha, she has no place to truly belong anymore. Taking into consideration that they both are inferred to feel this unspoken isolation from everyone around them, it seems quite natural that they should seek some sort of comfort in each other and be drawn to one another.
