I may have made some of these questions too hard for myself! I already talked about how much Asuna and Kirito’s relationship reminds me of my husband and me, but there’s anime couple I loved before them, one that kept me hanging on every week hoping they would finally get their act together and just be together! InuYasha and Kagome are my OG favorite anime couple.
I posted about InuYasha being one of my gateway fandoms:
Late one night, I couldn’t sleep and ended up watching InuYasha. I’m sure everyone is inwardly groaning right now, but just wait a second. I loved the story, the fighting, the good versus evil, the powerful stories behind the characters. Sango quickly became my favorite, with Kagome as a close second. These girls were strong, young, and smart.
Becoming a mega-fan of InuYasha turned out to be a great thing for me. When I changed schools in seventh grade, I found myself without any friends. I was brand new, and a lot of these kids knew each other from elementary school. I felt alone. I couldn’t bring myself to talk to anyone. After a few months with no friends still, I saw a girl sporting an InuYasha t-shirt. With all the courage I had in my introverted heart, I told her I liked her shirt. I made ten friends that day, all so close and dear to me still.
One of the main draws of this anime was the incredible love story unfolding between InuYasha and Kagome. A long game of “will they/won’t they” kept me tuning in every week and hoping they would finally be together. Between love triangles, timelines, and flat out denial of feelings, I hoped with every episode they would finally confess their feelings for each other.
And then (spoiler!) they finally did.
Maybe InuYasha and Kagome aren’t the best anime couple, but they are my favorite. They were the main reason I tuned in every week and even the reason I started watching subs! They opened a lot of doors for me, and I may not have come up with this challenge if it weren’t for InuYasha being my first anime.
