New revelations about Inu-Yasha's human side! New revelations about what happened when he and Kikyo had their big fight fifty years ago!

When Shippo the little fox-spirit-boy was introduced I thought he was annoying, but he's been growing on me and this episode made me really like him.

But ARGH extreme cliff-hanger!

Well, it was good while it lasted. Welcome back Kikyo, the character I dislike the most.

We finally got to one of my favorite parts of the story. When Inuyasha turns human for a little bit.

With Hanyou (half demons) there is a certain time that comes around when they lose all of their powers and turns human. For Inuyasha it is the night of the new moon. He looses his ears, fangs and claws, his hair turns black and he is completely susceptible to anything that would kill a human.

During this section of the book Inuyasha still tries to protect Kagome, Shippo and the Shikon Jewel fragm

Eww!! a black-haired Inuyasha! After seeing him, I'm glad that he is a half-demon.

Well, I have seen the anime and I hated Kikyo even more than Naraku, therefore I was really mad when she appeared in this volume 😐

Me parece que Kikyo esta celosa de Kagome.

Entran en muchos problemas cuando Inuyasha regresa a su forma humana. La relación de Inuyasha y Kagome es un poco extraña, ¿cuándo se darán cuenta de sus sentimientos?
Por fin aparece Sango! Ahora si todos los personajes que recuerdo están presentes

Ahora veo el porqué insisten tanto en el anime que Aome ya se que es Kagome pero nah, me acostumbre a la versión latina del nombre y Kikyo se parecen tanto, al menos en este tomo son idénticas.
Admito que soy de esas personas que empezó odiando a Kikyo pero con el tiempo fui cambiando de opinión.

Moves the overarching story along in a huge way, first by exposing InuYasha's weakness (he turns into a human at the new moon) and then by further exploring his connection with Kikyo (view spoiler).
Fun, quick read.

Solid without being anything spectacular to distinguish it from any other volume.

The first part of this volume, dealing with Inu Yasha's weakness as a half-demon was interesting, but by far the part that shined for me was the revelations involving Kikyo in the second half.

Pretty good, some random weird stuff in it... but I like all of the different types of demons in it. :)

*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

Ugh, the beginning of one of the worst InuYasha character interactions. I hate, hate Kikyo. I felt she never really did anything for his character. I wish she was only a arc thing, but OF COURSE SHE STICKS AROUND TO CONFUSE THE POOR DOG-DEMON-HUMAN-DUDE.

This volume isn't all in vain, because before that, Inu-Yasha turned into a human on the new moon!! :O I love this part, because I feel that he sees how Kagome really cares about his well being outside of his half-demon part. :o

Woah, woah, woah. Tantas cosas que no recordaba...

Buen plot twist cuando InuYasha se convierte en humano (lo había olvidado por completo). Me provoca un "aw" automático verlo indefenso y que aún así evite dejarlo al descubierto, y siga protegiendo a sus amigos.

Por otro lado, bendita Kikyo que tantos dolores de cabeza me trajo... Welcome back. Tal vez ahora con más edad pueda a llegar a entenderla algo más.

No, en realidad todos sabemos que no.

Dios mío, Kikyo por fin apareció!

Debo decir que de las primeras temporadas (en el anime) estos capítulos sobre la resurrección de Kikyo son mis favoritos. Los pensamientos de Inuyasha entre lo que siente por Kagome y por Kikyo son tales que me fascinan. Y aquí se visualizan mucho mejor.

Además que, como siempre, el diseño de Rumiko me encanta muchísimo.

Bekennender Kikyo-Fan.
Ich mochte ihren Auftritt in diesem Band echt gern. Das bringt eine neue Spannung in die Geschichte.
Man bekommt erste Hinweise auf ihre gemeinsame Geschichte mit Inu Yasha - macht auf jeden Fall neugierig.

I loved this part because we find out so much about the past and what happened to get tp this point and why feelings are hurt for some of the main characters. I am excited to read more about this part.

Torpe Tío Panini, me trae hecha un lio con los capítulos de cada tomo, pero la edición es simplemente preciosa. Entonces os digo, no se exactamente en que apartado va, pero... Vuelco al corazón bang bang.

It was nice they tell more about Kagome, InuYasha and Kikyo. Spiders were scary. I expect now more from this series, it's getting to be more interesting now.
Inuyasha can be so sweet sometimes.

*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
