* 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.

to:

** 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.

*** 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.

* 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!

**** 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.

* 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 is promptly 'ignores'. 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!
