OutofTomorrow: Work once again…See you in 16 hours or so…
:: There was something that felt so satisfying when he slugged Houjou, he had to admit he’d love to do it again and he almost did! As the fool toppled to the ground and stared at him blearily the hanyou raised his fist and stood ready to deliver another blow to the buffoons skull. Till he finally flopped to the ground unconscious, leaving him standing there in that threatening pose when Kagome finally came out.
Instantly his eyes widened as he realized what he looked like and quickly he dropped his arm and took on an innocent appearance! A sweatdrop rolling down as she stared at him in return and began to ask. ::
He was going to the house! I had to stop him!
:: Assssnd clocking the damn idiot out was a logical thing to do in order to stop him! At least in his book anyway. After a moments tention the girl quickly advised them to get out of there and he didn’t argue! Instead he turned and offered her his back again. :: Yeah we better move quick, especially if you want to pick up anything before we escape from this city.
::She found it interesting how he looked like he was afraid she was going to reprimand him fro knocking Houjou unconscious. Normally she might have…but as this was Houjou, and he was trying to protect her-she let it slide this time.:: Did he see you at all? ::She asked as she moved forward over the prone body and to the boy’s side as he offered her his back.::
If he saw you then we’ll probably have even more trouble. ::She added-gazing at his backside and trying to figure out how to get onto it-since that was obviously what he wanted her to do. After a moment she just threw caution to the winds and clambered up onto him, and set about positioning herself as comfortably as she could…
She did not elaborate on the ‘more trouble’ comment, though she knew that if he’d seen the boy then Houjou would probably hunt across the country looking for her. She didn’t feel like revealing that to the hanyou though, and just nodded as he agreed that they’d better move quickly.:: You too. I’m sure there are things you need to have for the long trip.
THIS is what actually happens in the manga
Kagome comes upon Naraku and Kikyou and proceeds to kick Naraku’s ass while saving Kikyou for the zillionth time
So why did anime cut out this Kagome AWESOMENESS?
Because they were biased. That’s why. -_-”
Thank you !
More people needs to see the differences between the anime and the manga !!
*Cries tears of joy
Read the manga ppl
Kikyo entered the forest as silently as ever, her sandals slightly clicked while breaking dry leaves under her feet. The forest was covered by a suspicious silence, which brought a slight frown to the priestess’s delicate countenance. There was something odd about that place, the birds that should be singing were silent, and the wind carried the sad smell of death, making Kikyo tighten her bow stronger. “Do you see how silent the forest is? The cause of such quietness must be the demon we are after.” Her voice was a quiet whisper as she kept following the strange enegy that was leading the two women further into the forest.
::The green miko followed, her mahogany eyes looking carefully about the silent wood. It was silent…eerily so. The only sounds that could be heard were the soft crackles of the dead leaves beneath the two miko’s feet, and the soft breathing from each. As the sickly sweet smell of death and rotting flesh reached the girl’s nose she made a small face, and drew her kasode sleeve over it.:: Yes, it’s quiet enough to hear a pin drop…and that smell…Some youkai is certainly laired in here.::she agreed, and added in her two cents, in a very soft voice. She wondered what kind of youkai they were facing…She couldn’t place the aura signature.::
When Kagome’s proposal reached Kikyo’s ears, she turned her chocolate orbs to look the girl with the corner of her eyes, a slight sigh escaped through her delicate lips while she gently nodded. ” It was already my intention to go find the demon. However, if you do not care about coming with me I will not object it. We would end up finding each other anyway.” The priestess took a deep breath before walking towards the forest. ” Follow me.” She simply said over her shoulder, making sure her reincarnation was after her.
::The green miko lifted her brow a little as the scarlet one sighed at her proposal. She had kind of figured that Kikyou was going after the youkai too, that was why she’d suggested working together. That-and two miko were indeed better than one. She nodded though as the elder miko told her to follow, and rose to her feet to do so, hooking her bow over her shoulder again.:: Coming~
"Well, I can’t see any rocks, so we’ll have to use these skeleton fragments instead." He replied, using the bundle of wood in his hands to smash the skeletons into smaller pieces suitable to trigger the traps, wrapping them up in more of the clothes he found and tying them to the wood, carrying the bundle over his shoulder. "If the bones don’t work, we can use the wood. If you have any objections, kindly state them now." He replied.
No, no objections…It’ll have to do. Just hope they’re heavy enough. ::The miko agreed, watching the second for the Shichinintai pick up the bones and wood pieces.
She looked back at the arch and chewed her lip, wondering if Naraku had any guards or something on duty to watch. She wouldn’t put it past him-so she mentally prepared herself to take down a slew of minor youkai.:: Ready to go? ::she asked Jakotsu, without looking back. Though she moved toward the archway out without waiting for a reply either, and peered around it.:: Seems like the coast is clear for now,
“There’s another twenty floors down. And that’s not including the tunnels spanning to each of his old castles. Not to mention the floor he does all of the repairs to his body on. Kagura filled me in on the way down and gave me the current map.” He replied, pulling three scrolls out of his yukata and handing them to the miko. “I’m handing them to you since they’re pretty much useless to me.” He added carefully. “She also said there might be traps, but I’ve got that part under control.” He replied, kicking in the doors to their cells and picking up the pieces of wood that broke off, tying them together with pieces of clothing belonging to the skeletons of long deceased prisoners.
Another….twenty…? ::She blinked and stared for a few moments more…over 40 levels to this one castle…Was Naraku part mole-youkai as well?! That was an absurd amount of floors!
She broke from her reverie though as he handed her the parchments with the floor plans on them. She nodded some and unrolled one to look it over.:: So-Kagura is defecting from Naraku still, by helping us figure out how to escape, huh? Clever girl…::she mused as she peered over the maps-seeing that sadly, the traps that the wind witch mentioned to Jakotsu were not listed on them. She sighed a little.::
We’ll need to be careful anyway, ::she announced rolling the parchment back up.:: The traps aren’t labeled-so if there are any as Kagura says, then we’ll have to spot the triggers ourselves. May be a good idea to keep things that can trigger them before we do close at hand, like-rocks, you know?
