A cliffhanger! That is totally not fair.

As I said in previous volumes, I am re-reading the first half then going on to finish the series (eventually). It's been a while since I read the first half of this series, and so not all of it is fresh in my mind. And this was a cliffhanger!

It's 12:30 in the morning as I type this and it was a cliffhanger.

The life of a fangirl is a challenging one.

Spoilers below...

But I got to say that I really enjoyed this volume. Kagome and Inuyasha finally

AAAAAAAHHHH OMFG SHIT JUST GOT REAL. Up until now InuYasha was just something that I read because it was a cool story and it felt pretty at ease, despite all the action scenes, but holy craaaaap, man.

*This review is for the series as a whole with 4.5 out of 5 stars*

This series is absolutely the longest series I’ve ever read so far, with a total of 56 volumes containing 559 chapters. Yeah right? I grew up watching anime and when I stumbled to this one, I instantly got hook. I’m so in love with this anime that I have the complete anime series in my possession. Yep! It occupy mostly the memory of my external drive haha sucker I know. And it’s just now that I finally had the courage to read its

*This review is for the series as a whole (with a 3 star rating) and will be included on every volume for my own organizing purposes.*
This will probably be the longest review I've ever written, and for that, I apologize. I have a lot to say and despite the character limit, it will be said.
InuYasha is honestly a classic in the sense that the anime is well-loved, the manga is typically well-loved, it was original-ish when it was first published, but it went on way too long. It's a 56 volume series

Sango's betrayal leads her and the gang into a deadly trap set by Naraku, with no way out! Or so it seems... When Naraku continues to criticize Inuyasha, Kagome finally snaps and nearly kills Naraku with her arrow!! Later on, Naraku even admits to himself that if she were even standing in front of Inuyasha, whom was between them, his life would have been in danger! It appears that Kagome may be the strongest of them all thus far... And later, Inuyasha and the gang travel and stay for a while at ...more

What first drew me to this series was the romantic historical aspect. I loved how a modern day girl gets pulled back into the past. I don't know what it is about those stories that attract me so much, maybe it is the difficulty for the girl of fitting in and having to rely on the guy so much to be able to get along in the world.

I also really liked the group aspect to this series and the corresponding relationships that affect each of the characters.

I would really recommend this series to fans of

Naraku is a jerk...

Sango chooses to betray her friends in order to get Naraku to let her brother go. Of course she's an idiot. But her friends seem to love her anyway....and thank god one of them is a dece3nt shot!

Jenenji is a gentle giant accused of awful things...good thing Kagome's around to clear the air (with reluctant help of course).

Naraku and Kikiyo and InuYasha all end up in roughly the same place...but of course the story ends there and you have to find the next volume.

Depois de ter dedicado os volumes anteriores a fortalecer a interacção entre os aliados de InuYasha, o autor decidiu inverter a tendência temporariamente, com uma curta história encabeça apenas por o hanyo e Kagome. O caminho inicial regressa pouco depois, mas nessa interrupção Takahashi quase pareceu pretender dar ao leitor um cheirinho dos primeiros volumes.

I really liked the "Earth Boy" subplot in here. it's nice to have a more "human" interlude, this time with a gentle giant of a half-demon. More on Kagome's mystic powers, as well.

A fun continuation of this amazing series. This one sees further development in the Sango vs Naraku sub-plot.
