Kikyou lovers

Information
In life, Kikyou was a powerful priestess(miko) with a calm reserved manner. With her kindness, she had helped many people along her path. She was apparently very intelligent as well, and although she rarely smiled with joy, she showed her internal sadness at times. Her only wish was to become an ordinary woman. However, since she was a priestess with tremendous spiritual power, she felt that it would be inappropriate for her to express any personal emotions in front of anyone. Kikyou was first introduced as the previous incarnation of Kagome, with whom InuYasha had once quarreled with in the events preceding the main story. However, it is later revealed that Kikyou and Inuyasha were actually in love, but were tricked into betraying each other by Naraku. Kikyou was led to believe that Inuyasha was leading her on to steal the sacred jewel at the time of her death. When Kikyou was resurrected by the Urasue, she was consumed with hate and the desire for revenge on InuYasha - the person she considered directly responsible for her death. Initially, Kikyou's soul is full of only this dark desire for revenge on Inuyasha, but later changed her focus to Naraku after learning it his doing. She is often seen helping the needy and ill along her way while wondering if she'll ever find peace. She learns the whole story of Inuyasha's betrayal when she asks Kaede to relay it to her. Though initially cold-hearted with a vengeance when she was resurrected, Kikyou learned new lessons every day, and still loved Inuyasha even when her main goal in her new life was to kill Naraku in order to reclaim the Shikon jewel from Naraku's corruption.

No you right she never did consume souls. In fact, the manga suggested it more than the anime. Scary how people make an assumption based on their attitude on the character.

Kikyo did not consume souls whatsoever. There is no evidence that back up that claim while it was stated numerous times that she "borrowed" their powers.

Was it morally wrong? I'd say probably yes. Was it a crime? No it wasn't. Especially not for a woman who's been resurrected and thus "cursed" against her own will. I think Kikyo's eventually managing to mostly regain her old self is a testimony to her purity and exceptional spiritual and will power.

Inuyasha's group taking her away from the barrier at Mt. Hakure is a strong evidence that she didn't consume souls otherwise the main cast would all be rendered evil or selfish because they were helping her doing that without thinking twice (saving Kagome who was uncontrollably jealous, it had nothing to do with morality) Even though they were alive and kicking, mentally sane and everything.

Also souls didn't have any consciousness, so using them is likely akin to the harm a man can cause on nature rather than abusing or murdering a living creature. Existing as resurrected corpses probably indirectly damages the ecosystem of the inuyasha universe by temporary causing souls to take longer to be reincarnated or something along these lines.

In Inuyasha, a consciousness and a soul are two separate things or else we wouldn't have Kikyo and Kagome co-existing. The soul is apparently immortal (Kikyo and Kagome's souls are one) but the consciousness will have their ends unless resurrected through evil means (which in a way implies even consciousnesses are immortal as well but in a slumber-like state)

When Resurrected-Kikyou passed away, she didn't have her life force (be it consciousness or soul) merge back to Kagome. It's a bit confusing.

Would a typical Miko (Priestess) eradicate entities like Resurrected-Kikyo on the spot regardless of whether they're good or evil? maybe most of them will. But a genuinely wise priestess like Kikyo would never approach things in such silly manner. She couldn't even kill Hakushin, instead, she felt bad for him, embraced him gently, comforted and convinced him to disappear in his own terms. That was despite his causing harm, having assisted Naraku revive which lead to her 2nd tragic demise.

StarLove23 | Jan 30, 2015 7:06 AM
I love Kikyou-Sama <3.

Meh, to each their own. I too am going to go by what I remember, which is the subbed version where there's no mention that Kikyou was consuming the souls of the dead. Anyone who has watched the sub or read the manga is free to prove me wrong.
