Inuyasha Volume 18 by Rumiko Takahashi

book 153:  InuYasha Volume 18 by Rumiko Takahashi

This volume includes the scene that was so painful (because of my own issues with desire to be able to change someone else to fit my dreams and acceptance of reality because that can never happen) that I almost couldn't watch it during the anime.  First the battle of InuYasha and Koga versus Kageromaru and Juromaru ends as expected.  InuYasha expresses jealousy towards Koga, and Kagome punishes him by returning to her own time again.  While she is gone, however, Kikyo confronts Naraku with the fact that in spite of his becoming a demon, he still contains his original human, Onigumo's, heart, which still lusts after her, preventing him from killing her even though she is a threat to him.  To prove Kikyo wrong, Naraku sends a soul-consuming demon after her which draws the borrowed souls from her body leaving her helpless and fleeing for her life to her old home and InuYasha's domain. InuYasha decides that he will never abandon Kikyo, in spite of his feelings for Kagome, and must let Kagome go.  Kagome realizes this, running back to her own time, not knowing how to deal with the pain of not being chosen.  She eventually decides to love him anyway and asks to stay by his side without expectations. The volume ends with the disappearance of Naraku's castle and the reappearance of an apparently memoryless and uncontrolled Kohaku, Sango's little brother.
