Kagome and Kikyou Do not Look Alike…Do They? – MyAnimeGo


It’s no secret how a lot I like Inuyasha. It was my first anime rising up and I shortly fell in love with the hanyou. The story of  Kagome Higurashi touring 500 years into the previous captivated me and my preteen self couldn’t wait to see how the story unfolded. The creator Rumiko Takashi turned the primary movie star for me to admire and aspire to be.

Kagome is meant to be the reincarnation of Kikyou. She possessed the Shikon No Tama or “Jewel of 4 Souls” which was to grant the want of the proprietor. Kagome wasn’t conscious of this at first and was stunned to search out that she even had the Shikon within the first place.

After breaking it….or shattering it into 1,000,000 items, she goes on a journey with Inuyasha and is quickly adopted by others.

The story is wonderful and the manga artwork is what lead me to first begin drawing. All the time the hopeless romantic, I cherished the love story between Inuyasha, our hanyou, and Kagome. It was made sophisticated by the truth that Inuyasha had been in love with Kikyou first earlier than she died making an attempt to guard the jewel and believing that Inuyasha had betrayed her.

Kagome was her reincarnation, and it appeared each ladies nonetheless had robust emotions for the half-demon.

Kikyou was introduced again to life by a Witch Physician and needed to take souls to maintain herself alive, despite the fact that she was technically nonetheless a corpse with the previous reminiscences there. Everybody mentioned that they regarded alike….and effectively, I’m not so certain.

Largely by the truth that Inuyasha errors Kagome for Kikyou once they first met. And it’s not the primary time to occur within the present. Whereas they could have the identical hair colour, the variations are an excessive amount of, in my view, to be “twins”, even when she is the reincarnation. Kikyou has darker eyes and paler pores and skin(a results of being…you realize, lifeless). Kagome’s hair has extra of a curl and slight wave to it whereas Kikyou’s is bone straight. She’s even thinner than Kagome if that’s even attainable.

And that’s simply the looks. The persona couldn’t be extra day and evening.

It does deliver an fascinating dynamic to the present although. Once I first began watching it, I completely hated Kikyou. She was only a nuisance in the way in which of my OTP. She was chilly and unfeeling and I needed her to only go away the Earth and get out the Limbo she was caught in.

Because the story progressed although, I began to love her character increasingly more. I needed my Hanyou to be glad. 

She was the primary individual that Inuyasha had began to open to. He had needed to belong someplace, to be cherished and accepted even supposing he was a half-demon. It made me like her extra to appreciate that she really did take care of the hanyou, simply otherwise than Kagome did. Inuyasha wanted Kagome since she confirmed him the way to belief and love. Kagome accepted each side of him, whereas Kikyou had needed him to be changed into a full human. It was by no means really mentioned whether or not Kikyou modified her thoughts about that, however I doubt it. She was afraid of his demon aspect.

What do you assume? What group are you on? I’d love to listen to your ideas and opinions. Let me know within the feedback beneath.

As at all times, hold smiling!
