Product Description

Inuyasha ~ Inuyasha

Based on the manga by Rumiko Takahashi, the creator of Ranma 1/2 and Urusei Yatsura, the Inu-Yasha TV series (2000) has been eagerly awaited in the U.S. Kagome Higurashi, a normal 15-year-old girl, falls down a dry well--and finds herself in the feudal past, 50 years after her ancestress Kikyo imprisoned the half-human/half-demon Inu-Yasha. As the reincarnation of Kikyo, Kagome possesses a magic jewel that greatly increases the power of demons. (Inu-Yasha needs it to make himself all demon.) Kagome fetters Inu-Yasha with the help of her priestess-ancestor Kaede, and when the jewel is shattered Kagome and Inu-Yasha must ally to recapture the fragments. If a demon or evil human were to obtain a single shard, the consequences would be terrible. Inu-Yasha sometimes feels like cross between Ranma and Blue Seed, but Takashi once again blends interesting characters, comedy, and adventure into a winning story line that is entirely her own. (Unrated: Suitable for ages 13 and older: violence, grotesque imagery, brief nudity) --Charles Solomon

Customer Reviews

This is undoubtably the best anime series ever.
Aside from the excellent fight scenes and great animation this series has a very nicely done and well thought out story and script with just a little bit of humor.
It's baffling really... Honestly I want to know where they find these people!

Rumiko Takahashi is one of the, if not the, most famous female manga artist in the world. With titles such as "Ranma" and "Maison Ikokku" in her resume, she has established a worldwide following and has garnered a reputation as the Queen of Romantic Comedy. Her latest undertaking, "Inu-Yasha", has already gained a cult following in the US and, like her other manga series, has been made into a successful anime series that has just a strong following in America. American publisher Viz, having already published twelve volumes in the US, now brings us the anime.
At first glance, "Inu-Yasha" seems like a typical anime series. Kagome, a Japanese high school girl, is transported to the feudal age of Japan through a magical well, where she unwittingly awakens a cocky, imprisoned half-demon called Inu-Yasha. You see, Inu-Yasha was after the Shikon no Tama, a powerful jewel that could grant him his wish to become full demon, but a village priestess called Kikyo stopped him with a mystical arrow. Suffering from untreatable wounds, Kikyo decides to die and take with her to her grave the Shikon no Tama. But get this: Kagome is apparently Kikyo's reincarnation, and she just so happens to have the Shikon no Tama with her! Then, through a bizarre set of circumstances, the jewel ends up shattering and scattering all over Japan, and now Inu-Yasha and Kagome have to team up and find these pieces.
Typical, huh?
Not quite.
You see, "Inu-Yasha" is a lot deeper than the first set of episodes will have you believe. Sure, it looks like something you'd find in just about every other fantasy anime series out there, but truthfully, the meat of the series is found in later episodes, when Takahashi demonstrates her true (if not bizarre) genius.

The famed Rumiko Takahashi's -- known for her very popular series like Ranma 1/2, Maison Ikkoku, and Urusei Yatsura -- most recent masterpiece is the story that encompasses many different genres, a sample being: love, action, suspense, and comedy. You wonder how epic the story is? Inu Yasha still has yet to conclude in Japan. Right now, it is currently at episode 86 with no signs that it's ready to finish anytime soon. The second Inu Yasha movie is scheduled for this winter in Japan.
The series is named after a half-human, half-demon called Inu Yasha. One day on her fifteenth birthday, Kagome entered a well that was inside her family's shrine. Little did she know that she would be transported to the past in a time where many youkai (demons) dwell. There she realizes that she is the reincarnation of a past priestess named Kikyo who had the destiny to purify and protect the Shikon no Tama, a jewel that manifests and increases the evil desires and power of youkai and evil humans. Kagome wandered throughout the new place where she had arrived and found Inu Yasha, a dog-like half-youkai that Kikyo had sealed before her untimely death. Kagome had discovered the Shikon no Tama hidden within her while an encounter with a youkai. However, the Shikon no Tama had been shattered and dispersed after battling a different youkai. After learning more about this time, Kagome eventually accepted her destiny to find and protect the Shikon no Tama (while still juggling school work) as well with the help of a likeable cast of strong warriors.
As the story progresses, it branches out a lot and becomes deeper and more complicated. New enemies, new friends, and new loves are all revealed. The only problem with this anime that I had was the addition of filler episodes.

Kagome is just your average 15-year-old girl from Tokyo who happens to live with her mother, brother, and grandfather in an ancient shrine. Kagome has no patience for the legends that her grandfather preaches about and prefers to live her life has any teenager would. Unfortunately for Kagome, she is destined to more than this. One day, while searching for the family cat near her family's well she is pulled into the well by a strange centipede demon. After somehow magically forcing the demon away it vanishes and Kagome is left at the bottom of her well as if the whole thing never happened, or so she thinks. When she climbs out of the well she finds that she has traveled back in time to Feudal Japan in the Warring states Era. Pinned to a giant nearby tree is a strange looking boy with pointy dog-ears. After being kidnapped and taken to a local village she learns that this boy's name is Inuyasha, a half-demon who once sought to possess the Shikon no Tama, a sacred jewel. Kagome doesn't understand what's going on or why she so resembles the last keeper of the jewel, Kikiyo until she discovers she herself possesses the sacred jewel and Inuyasha is accidentally awakened. Through a series of events the jewel is accidentally shattered through out the land. Now Kagome and Inuyasha are the only ones who can work together to find the shards of the sacred jewel. That is if they don't kill each other first.
Inuyasha is an anime based on the graphic by Rumiko Takahashi, the most popular female comic book creator in the world. The characters are impossible not to like. Inuyasha, who shares the main character slot with Kagome, is a complicated hero who doesn't always act heroic. Kagome is very easy to relate to, making her a heroine that you'll find yourself cheering for regardless of the odds.
