Story and Art by Rumiko Takahashi

Inuyasha Resurrected is the 2nd chapter of the InuYasha manga.


Kagome meets the newly awakened Inuyasha for the first time. Inuyasha mistakes Kagome for Kikyō, the miko who bound him to the tree. Kagome is chased by the Mistress Centipede who tracked her down to quench her thirst for the Sacred Jewel. Although they get into a fight, Kagome agrees to release Inuyasha for saving her life and Inuyasha kills the centipede. Inuyasha then threatens Kagome to hand over the Shikon no Tama or he'll kill her.


Kagome runs from Mistress Centipede who keeps demanding for the Shikon no Tama. Kagome exclaims that she doesn't have it. The yōkai lunges at her and makes Kagome trip. She lands in front of the Sacred Tree that Inuyasha is bound to and Inuyasha calls out to Kagome who he thinks is Kikyo. Kagome is confused by this and asks him surprisingly that he's alive. He smartly remarks how she was wasting her time, and that she should just kill her like she killed him, calling her Kikyo. Kagome was about to retort when Mistress Centipede swoops down and tries to grab her but the villagers from Kaede's village come and pull Mistress Centipede off of Kagome.

Inuyasha, still thinking that she is Kikyo, tells Kagome that he was disappointed in her and she gets up in Inuyasha's face and yells at him that her name was not Kikyo, but Kagome. As Inuyasha realizes that he has made a mistake, Mistress Centipede grabs hold of Kagome and Kagome holds onto Inuyasha's hair, yelling at Mistress Centipede to let her go. Inuyasha yells at Kagome to let HIM go, surprising the villagers and Kaede with the fact that he was awake from his spell. Mistress Centipede says she wants the Sacred Jewel, and that she will devour Kagome, jewel and all, to get it.


Kagome pinned to the tree by Mistress Centipede

Kagome pushes the yōkai off using an unintentional sacred blast, blasting the centipedes arms off; Kagome is surprised at herself and wonders how she did it. Angered by this, Mistress Centipede attacks Kagome and bites into the side of her stomach. The Sacred Jewel bursts out of Kagome's body and falls to the ground; everyone in the vicinity stares in shock at Kagome and the jewel. Kagome was about to grab the jewel when Inuyasha declares that the jewel was his and to hand it over to him. Before she can react, Mistress Centipede traps her up against the Sacred Tree and taunts Inuyasha about his being a hanyō that has no power.

Much to everyone's dismay, the centipede swallows the jewel and begins the transformation into a much more powerful demon. Mistress Centipede begins using more force to crush Kagome up against the tree. Inuyasha asks Kagome if she can pull out the arrow that is binding him to the Sacred Tree. Kaede tells Kagome not to pull out the arrow and free him. Inuyasha yells at Kaede saying that if Kagome didn't free him they were all going to die. He then proceeds to ask Kagome if she wanted to die with him. Kagome, not wanting to die, pulls out the arrow and frees the hanyō.

Inuyasha, happy to be free of his confinement, takes on Mistress Centipede. He kills her with one strike of his Sankon Tessō. The villagers and Kagome look on in amazement at Inuyasha's power. Kagome freaks out over one of the pieces of Mistress Centipede still moving. Kaede comes over to Kagome and tell her to find the glowing flesh that hides the Sacred Jewel, or the yōkai will revive. Kagome, when she realizes that Kaede isn't joking, finds the jewel and takes it out of the centipede's flesh. Kagome looks at the Shikon no Tama, and concludes that it can make yōkai stronger. Inuyasha tells her she's right and says that it's something that is useless to humans. He says unless Kagome gives him the Sacred Jewel, she will become a victim to his claws. Kagome stares at him with utter confusion.
