Two Hearts, One Mind is the thirty-eighth episode of the InuYasha anime.


  1. Kagome returns home to the modern era after having an argument with Inuyasha; Kagome's friends finally learn about Inuyasha, and they speculate that she must be in love with him.
  2. Inuyasha finally heads to the modern era to bring Kagome back to the Feudal Era, but he flees when he learns that Kagome is still angry, and he makes her brother Sōta promise not to tell Kagome that he was there.
  3. Kagome eventually returns to the Feudal Era.


Angry at Inuyasha for believing she was intimate with Kōga, Kagome went back home. Since she's necessary to the search for the shards, Inuyasha's friends urge him to go to Kagome and apologize, but his pride prevents him to do so. He nevertheless goes to Kagome's, twice, but each time circumstances prevent him from seeing her. Though Miroku cautions against watching the Bone-Eater's Well to keep Sango and Shippō from Inuyasha's wrath, he can't resist either because he "can't resisting watching Inuyasha make a fool out of himself."

Meanwhile, thinking back and discussing with her school friends, Kagome calms down and goes back to the feudal era by herself, where to her surprise Inuyasha apologize right away. However, it's for breaking her alarm clock; he was shocked by it ringing when he went to try apologizing once, but couldn't figure out how to shut it off. Angered, Kagome prepares to yell 'Sit", but Miroku, Sango and Shippō arrive, telling her not to as Inuyasha went twice to try apologizing. Inuyasha is left angered that they've been spying on him; they say it's only because they care about him. Inuyasha snaps and starts chasing them around. Kaede arrives and tells Kagome that Inuyasha is simply happy she's back. The episode ends with Miroku tripping and Inuyasha in mid-air.
