Inuyasha, Kagome and the rest of the gang still do not defeat Naraku, and are still in search for the missing Jewel Shards. That is how the anime ends. The manga, however is not done with. So there is still hope. I just hope Rumiko gets to "finish" the anime, doing justice to its plot. And doing justice to its plot, in my opinion, is having Inuyasha finally express his true feelings for Kagome, and the rest be told by someone else - who cares.
