Well..simply put...he loves Kikyo...is in love with Kagome...he has a hard time expressing it because the first person he's ever loved (other than his mother) is Kikyo. Also, hes a half-demon as well, so he so doesnt know what it feels like to love someone then someone else. So he can't break the trance he feels when Kikyo's around. However, on every occasion from the episode one all the way to the Final Act, he has always chosen Kagome over Kikyo when given a choice, even when he would leave to go see Kikyo. So, to answer your question, its definitely Kagome, he just can't express it the same because his not over his past. But without saying, he's always chosen Kagome.   : - )

He loves both of them, but I think he loves Kagome more.

  It is a well known fact that Inuyasha hardly cries; he never cried before both women were in his life. And the first time he cried was because he Kagome died. Not exactly when she died, he cried when she came back to life. The second time (and the last time we saw him cry) was because Kikyo did die, the second time. From this I would think he loves Kagome more. Reasons? The first time crying is always harder to cry than the second time. I guess you could say that once you start, you can kind of get used to it. So the second time wasn't really as big of a deal as the first time.  Also, Kagome didn't die (she only had a near death experience) and he cried. Kikyo did die and he cried.

  In the episode 'Kikyo's kiss and Kagome's voice', I would suspect he loved Kagome more, even from the start. I mean, Kikyo kissed him, yet he was able to 'wake' up just from hearing Kagome's voice. I mean, a kiss is MUCH deeper than just hearing someones voice.

  When Inuyasha and Kikyo were officially a couple, they never kissed. The only glimpse of them before, was of him watching her, going on a boat with her, and catching her when she fell. When he was with Kagome, he protected her, talked to her a lot, kissed her, and so on. Yes, there is an argument on this. The time Kikyo spent with Inuyasha was shorter than the time he spent with Kagome, but I don't think that makes a difference.

  When Naraku played around with the trust of the two lovers (Kikyo and Inuyasha) they bought it and started hating each other, ending up as the result of Inuyasha being 'dead' for 50 years. If they really loved each other, they would of trusted each other, but they were very quick to believe it weren't they? 

  Everyone (well, almost everyone) say that you have to go through with one boyfriend/girlfriend to find the one you truly love, so basically saying that Kikyo wasn't his true love.

  Kagome is constantly on his mind. When hes with Kagome, he doesnt think too much about Kikyo, especially later on. And the few times we see him with Kikyo, Kagome is on his mind. I would say the reason he thinks about Kikyo is because he thinks/believes that he still loves, her, but hes just trying to convince himself.

  And about the whole 'reincarnation' thing, Kagome is still her own person. I would say her personality is completely different from Kikyo's, so Inuyasha did not fall in love with the same girl.

  At the beginning, Kikyo was only there and paying attention to Inuyasha was because she wanted to get revenge. I wouldn't really call that 'love' would you?

  I've got a ton more reasons, but I'll settle for these for now. Oh, another is that he kissed Kagome twice, both when she was alive, and he wanted to. The only reason he kissed Kikyo was because she was erm....dying the second time.

I think Inuyasha likes Kagome more… I mean sure he loved Kikyo, but if you watch through the episodes you could kind of tell that he is beginning to love Kagome too. Inuyasha once said that he needs to be with Kikyo because she died for him, not because he loves her. And so every time when Inuyasha saves Kikyo or protects her, he is more doing so because he believes it’s the right thing to do… But he does love Kikyo very much and I don’t think it will ever change.
Inuyasha and Kagome’s relationship is pretty blurry, but as the journey goes on, Inuyasha really shows his love to Kagome. First, every time when all his friends get in danger, he’ll always yell out Kagome’s name and saves her first. Inuyasha also thinks about Kagome all the time, when she’s at her own home, Inuyasha always goes and visit her. But he never thinks about Kikyo that much, I mean don’t get me wrong, he does of course miss Kikyo but he kind of forgets about her when he is around Kagome, but when Inuyasha is with Kikyo, Kagome is always on the back of his mind.
And there are too many things to say.
So… For me, I’ll say he loves Kagome more, but he’ll always love Kikyo because she is his first love and he’ll never forget her.

Well, I think he loves kagome more. The reason is  is because even tho she is Kikyo re carnation kagome is way better 2 him than kikyo. When she was possessed in the 1st and 3rd movie I think it was the 3rd 1.... Well any way she told him to run away so that he could not be hurt. But he didnt because he loved her to much. Kikyo tried to take him away from kagome for selfish reasons. Kagome dos get upset when he is around kikyo but in 1 episode where Kagua and that baby brat capture kagome she tells him to find kikyo. And remember what he says, he says forgive me. He cares very deeply for kikyo but I think he cares even more deeply for kagome.that episode he probably also heard kagome scream she loved him when the kid was trying to take her soul. I am very deeply involved in inuyasha that it annoys my dad and little bro a lot. But please think of what I had to say.

WOW, that's a really hard question viewers have been wanting to know for a long time but if you ask me...I would choose...Kagome, he just can't get over Kikyo yet so he acts as if he loves her. Because he still thinks he does. P.S. Judging by the pictures I've seen on youtube.com, I think he chooses kagome over Kikyo.
(I'll let you in on a little secret, I saw a picture of inuyasha and kagome... Naked if you know what I mean!)

He's in love with kagome, since she's kikyo's reincarnation. he sees certain characteristics that he likes. So really kagome is kikyo, plus so much more, which makes her better. She is the best pick for him everything she is, balances out everything he is, together their like yin and yang. They where made a perfect match,thats how its meant to be. You can tell that he loves her the most. it's so out there.

I'm amazed by the number of people who are in denial here. He does not love Kagome more than Kikyou just because he spends more time with her. Both women are important figures in his life and he loves them both equally. There is no doubt that he has come to love Kagome as much more than just being Kikyou's reincarnation, but he'll never throw away his feelings for Kikyou either. Kikyou is the first woman he fell in love with and the first person he shared his first romantic relationship with. After reading Chapter 465 of the manga (Episode 8 of the Final Act series), I became very much convinced that he does not love one more than the other and that his love for Kikyou remains ever as strong as it was prior to her death. As a result of this equal love, he was never able to choose one over the other.

I think he loved them both in very different ways... He knew Kikyo first.. And she was the one who gave him a first chance despite the fact that he was a demon and all and wanted him to change into a human. He used to think he was like unloveable or something (when they show all the kids who never wanted to be friends with him when he was a kid) and Kikyo well... She was his first friend. And that developed into love.
Reality check :
Kagome never insisted on Inu Yasha becoming human. She just doesnt want him to become a demon because she thinks he wont recognise her anymore or care. She's okay with him being a half-demon. And she's kind and sweet and everything more than Kikyo was, because she could accept him like that. Kikyo on the other hand could accept him temporarily knowing he'd become human sometime in the future. (love with expectations lol)

And with Kagome, unconditional love.

The reason he's so hesitant with her is because he doesn't feel good enough for her. Even though. He doesnt show it. But when he makes up his mind to protect Kikyo from Naraku.. What he thinks about choosing Kikyo something of the likes... She and I are one of a kind... [he thinks he isn't tainted and not good or pure like Kagome but like Kikyo, after revenge and all -funny cause he really isn't!-]

Hope it helped. But this is my opinion. Never liked Kikyo much. Dead woman hanging onto a living woman's soulmate? Not cool man. Yuck.

InuYasha is in love with Kagome more. He protects Kagome. He cried when he found out Kagome, Sango, and Miroku were going to be alright after they inhaled poison for the Band of Seven. He always tries to save and protect Kagome more than Kikyo. He may act like he loves Kikyo, but he can't get over that she bound him to a tree and to find out 50 years later to be saved by Kagome. So Kagome is InuYasha's one true love.

No he doesn't. He loves them equally the same. He's had more time with Kagome, but if he had the same amount of time with Kikyou, he would prolly choose her. If I was inu, I'd choose Kikyou, because Kagome's too annoying and she's bitchy and too nagging. I'd prolly put the beads on her and tell her to sit.

I also agree with this! I mean, honestly who doesn't forget their first love you know? And also, if naraku didn't manipulate kikyo & inuyasha, they would still be together. They're good together! I mean, they both come from opposite sides of the spectrum. And together, they were absolutely adorable. I love kikyo and inuyasha together personally! (:

I agree with you, I actually used to like Kagome but she grew to annoy me so much for the exact reasons you said. Besides Kikyo is Inuyasha's first love, the moments they shared are more intimate and deep.

I think he loves Kikyo more in the beginning but by the end Kagome won Inuyasha. He only wanted to let Kikyo know that he didn't kill her and that he did love her.

Judging by the comments,Most of the people prefer kagome.this show is the journey of inuyasha it isn't about who he chooses at the end. Both kikiyo and kagome are very important to him. And both of them plays a very vital role in his development.

Having said that I don't ship pairings in any kind of show I usually go with whats on the screen .so to me it is absolutely clear that he chooses kagome. Kikiyo is just there to create a love triangle so that people can argue that who loves inuyasha more or something like that.

So to answer your question he chooses KAGOME people will argue that it's only because kikiyo died or whatever. The fact of the matter is he does marry kagome. That answers everything besides it doesn't really matter isn't kikiyo and kagome are kind of the same person they have same soul. And after when kikiyo came  back to life. It was done using a part of kagome's soul. So she is basically a part of kagome herself.

Of course Inuyasha is madly in love with Kagome. He might still think of Kikyo but he promised to never leave Kagome again. Inuyasha would die before letting anything happen to Kagome.

I can't believe so many people are so dumb, such bandwagon riders, after the final act came out it was obvious that inuyasha had stronger feelings for kikyou. My reasoning? Well lets just list the obvious points

kikyou was inuyasha's FIRST love, we all know how strong first loves are (unless we have a bunch of grade schoolers here) and every love after will always be compared. Inuyasha went through the most emotional grief over kikyou, and that is only partly due to her death. He was easily able to get over the betrayal and it was like nothing had ever happened.

Despite the fact that they both spent massive amounts of time with him, inuyasha was prepared to become a human, destroy the jewel, and live with her forever, abandoning ALL of his previous insecurities of being a half demon and such

inuyasha NEVER kissed kagome, yet he kissed kikyou THREE times (once in the past after getting off the boat, once in the present in the forest, and again before she died- and remember folks this is at the end of the series after all his supposed love for kagome has developed and right in front of her might I add). Inuyasha and kagome only kissed in the anime which was a CHANGE from the original manga, most likely to appease fans.

The entire story plot revolves around the love between inuyasha and kikyou if you hadnt noticed folks (yes the love between him and kagome is also one of the largest plots), the entire reason onigumo became naraku was to get the love of kikyou that was his wish, and why he tried so hard to separate and make the two hate each other. Even after he still tried to destroy their bonds in whatever way he could, their love was the fuel for the series. Without that there would be no show.

There are many other reasons but the main point is clear. I'm not saying inuyasha doesnt have feelings for kagome, they are strong for sure, but I cannot deem them as strong as what he had for kikyou. Case closed

No one really knows for sure. But he spends most of his time with Kagome and Kikyo was his first lover so he loves her still, no matter what she does to him.

Kagome and Inuyasha make a better couple then him and Kikyo even though that he loves them both and can't make up his mind.

Of course inuyasha loves kagome more than kikyo! Its so obvious! In an episode where kikyo kissed inuyasha and intends to bring him to hell, inuyasha hears kagome's voice and breaks out of the trance to save her. Plus kagome isn't as serious as kikyo and thats what inuyasha needs! Kikyo is too bitchy to be with inuyasha even though they used to be lovers, kikyo has changed too much to be fully happy with him and besides she's dead so I think that inuyasha loves kagome more! :)

Well it doesn't really matter because Kikyo is dead, right? So Inuyasha and Kikyo can't be together, right? RIGHT??? Haha but honestly I think that Kagome and Inuyasha are more suited for one another, and besides that, Kikyo has changed since she lived 50 years ago, so the Kikyo he supposedly still has feelings for now isn't the same Kikyo as the one he loved long ago... She's really only an empty shell of her former self (plus the bitterness) so... Kagome is the one for him. Plus, Kagome's, you know... Alive?!?! Lol!

Inuyasha always had kind of upset mood when he's with Kikyo.. And the atmosphere was always so mellow.. When he's with Kagome.. He acted more naturally.. And he's happy!
I don't really like Kikyo..  She seemed so cold.. (well, in fact she is! She's dead..)

For me though, whether he loved Kikyo or a Kagome... It's all just about who met whom first..
But I give my support for Kagome =) Go girl!

This is the golden question, isn't it? Which girl means the most to InuYasha? *This contains spoilers.

Kikyo is InuYasha's first love. First loves are always so difficult to forget. After she died, but was resurrected, InuYasha felt indebted to her because she lost her life basically at his hands. So he was prepared to protect her even if it meant that he had to die. And of course he still had feelings for her. But when you think about it.. She is just bones and clay, and can only survive so long as she has other people's souls to live off of. It is truly only a matter of time that Kikyo dies for a second time.

And I know that many believe that Kagome does not belong in the same era as Kikyo or InuYasha, but she was brought there and has the ability to travel there for a reason: Fate. And, also, many people believe that the only reason InuYasha fell in love with Kagome was because she was the reincarnation of Kikyo. Not true. Kagome is her own person, she is nothing like Kikyo at all.

But in the end, Kikyo dies and InuYasha marries Kagome.
;D Yeah! Inu and Kag forever!!
Hope this helped. :]

I think he love kikyo more,in fact.
@Anonymous  Does Inayasha really love kagome at the beginning?No.It's the other people(sanko,miroko...)make he  feel that he love kagome.Everytime he comes back after seeing kikyo,then they(sanko,miroko...) begin to criticize him,for kagome,is the 'sit'.But to see kikyo or not is the right of inuyasha.it has nothing to do with other people.So what do I want to say about this?inayasha 's love to kagome is not true.
If he loves  kagome more,why does he still go to find kikyo when he gets some information,especially when kagome is at side?in the episode 47,inayahsa has decided to protect kikyo and not to see kagome any more,what  can we deduce from this?
It is true that inayasha cries for the first time for kagome.But it can't illustrate anything.we suppose it is kikyo who is nearly dying not kagome at that time,would inayasha  cry ?the answer is yes.
I have more reason ahout  why inayasha loves kikyo more.we must kown that kikyo is not alive in the anime but kagome is.it's not fair.if kikyo revive truely in the episode 15(?),inayasha would choose her.

To be honest I don't like or dislike kikyo. Before kikyo died she was once a very kind hearted person. But when naraku killed her she died with hatred and despare. The good part of kikyo was reincarnated into kagome, but that one time when he choose kikyo, inuyasha didn't realize this yet. But then inuyasha got to know kagome more and realized that kagome had kikyo's kindness plus sooooooooo much more which is why he ends up with her. Oh that and I think KIKYO IS HORRRIIIIBLLE hate to brake it to you kagome hater's.
