Kagome From Inuyasha Is One of My Favorite Anime Girls
Kagome, is one if my favorite anime girls. Anf today we’re highlighting strong anime girls and giving reasons why we love them. In the anime, there are all kinds of female characters. There are those with powers and others who are as normal as you and me. There are women who are an integral part of the story and then there are women characters who play a smaller role. A woman who has always stood out for me as unique is Kagome – a woman who, at first glance, looks rather ordinary but is strong and always loyal to her friends.
Kagome premiered in this anime in an interesting way. One day a demon lures her down a well that leads her 500 years back in time to Feudal Japan because of a rare gem in her body, known as the Shikon no Tama. The demon extracts the jewel from her body but accidentally shatters the jewel into hundreds of pieces that disperse all over Japan. While in this past she bumps into a strange looking man who is stuck to a tree. His name is Inuyasha, a half man half demon creature who was put there by a woman named Kyoko.
Putting a special necklace on Inuyasha, Kagome gains a strange power over him. If she thinks he is acting out of line or being just plain just annoying, all she has to say is sit and he falls (gets thrown) hard onto the ground. At first, these two people hate each other. There is nothing but time on their hands as they venture out on a long quest to find all of the shards of the Shikon no Tama, and prevent them from falling into the clutches of Naraku, an evil mastermind who is also in search of the shards. On the journey Kagome and Inuyasha meet some great people who not only become their friends, but also help them stop all the demons they run into and make sure that the shards are recovered.
It is a long journey, and one that will not be easy, but Kagome knows that, as long as she has Inuyasha and the rest of her friends by her side, together they will find a way gather the shards and stop evil in in its tracks. No matter how bad things got or how hopeless they appeared to be, she always was the glimmer of hope that kept all of them going even in the darkest moments.
When I watch Inuyasha, it is always amazing to see the how contrary Kagome’s image and true self really are – sweet and innocent but extraordinarily powerful. Her powers are not always obvious, and sometimes even seem peculiar, but, when the things get bad, Kagome is there to bring them all together. She is able to conquer whatever obstacles stand in their way. She is a great example that strength doesn’t have to come from anger, but that it can exist with love and hope.
The best part about her character though is how she affects everyone around her for the better. Inuyasha was an angry person who only wanted revenge when he first met her, but, in time, his heart softens with their romance as it grows into something wonderful with Kagome. This series is long, but one that is worth checking out. When you watch it, you will see why I chose Kagome out of all the female characters on this anime. She has more layers, and that is what makes her amazing. Pay attention and you will see why she grew out from a small role into one that held this series together and, in the end, made it one of the great ones.
