Storyline

Kagome Higurashi is a 15 year old schoolgirl who lives at a history-filled Japanese shrine. She is also the reincarnation of an ancient priestess named Kikyo, who guarded the sacred Shikon no Tama (Jewel of Four Souls), and who sealed away the half-demon Inuyasha who had tried to steal the jewel in order to become a full demon. Kikyo died of her wounds and had the jewel burned with her body. Kagome is one day pulled into the ancient well on her family's shrine and thrown into the past, 50 years after Kikyo's death. She befriends Kaede, the late Kikyo's sister, who realizes Kagome is Kikyo's reincarnation. They are attacked, and learn that Kagome has the Shikon no Tama, but it's actually inside her body! Kagome accidentally awakens the dog-demon Inuyasha, and frees him after the jewel has been ripped from her body. Now Inuyasha wants the jewel back, but Kagome can't let him have it. He is forced (by Kaede's magic) to wear a necklace that allows Kagome to control him with one word, "Sit... Written by Kimberly Milliff <psylock1234@ev1.net>

Inuyasha's father is never mentioned by a proper name. His title, "The Great Dog General" would be spoken as "InuTaisho" in Japanese. See more »

Quotes

Kagome: [after Miroku observes that Inuyasha isn't such a bad guy] Miroku is right. Inuyasha could have killed the artist, and ended the trouble in one blow. But instead, he spared the man's life and went straight for the ink pot. Yeah, I guess Inuyasha's all right. He just doesn't know it yet. I might tell him, someday, if the time is ever right.

Appreciate InuYasha (the anime) for what it is
5 October 2011 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

I would like to see all of those who were complaining about how Inuyasha is a bad show and how no one should see it, create an anime/manga, publish it and see if it becomes popular or not. This show happens to be popular in many countries. You all have your opinions and I respect that, but when it comes to things like this, you shouldn't even be complaining at all because it's not like you're being forced to watch it. If you don't like this show, then move on to the next anime. It's your problem if you can't see why there are fans that actually do like the anime. So sue us if we think it's great. I'm not afraid to admit it. Inuyasha is my all time favorite anime. If you have a problem with that, I don't care. Nothing you can all say or do will change that fact. You all have your favorite shows and I have mine. We're all entitled to our opinion here and I know that. Every anime has different character designs. You can't really expect every anime to have the same character design in all of the episodes. It's bound to change somehow.
