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

The four-episode story arc beginning with "The Ancestor's Name is Kagome" features four youkai ninja: Suzaku the bird, Seiryuu the dragon, Byakko the tiger, and Genbu the tortoise. These four are mythological creatures in Chinese constellations, each representing a direction and a season of the year, and they appear in many historical Chinese myths and legends, as well as many other works of modern Japanese fiction - most notably the anime series "Fushigi Yuugi." These four symbols also appear again in the fourth Inuyasha movie, "Guren no Houraijima," as the four villains Kyoura, Ryuura, Juura, and Goura. See more »
Don't leave me, Lord Sesshomaru!
[Inuyasha steps on his back and holds him to eye level]
What do you want?
I want some answers, what else? What's going on between Naraku and Sesshomaru?
I don't discuss my Lord's matters with filthy half breeds like you!
[Inuyasha punches him on the head]
I meant, it's a terribly long story.
Then make it short.

With Pokemon, Beyblade and Yu-Gi-Oh gracing the small screen, it has become difficult to take Japanese Anime seriously. Thankfully, Cartoon Network has put a block of Japan's finest in their red-eye time slot, spearheaded by Inuyasha.
The general gist of the plot is Kagome, a modern schoolgirl, winds up in feudal times and must help a half-demon(Inyasha) recover the shards of a jewel of ultimate power.
One might say that Inuyasha combines the best of both Shonen and Shojo stylings. The world of feudal Japan is laced with ghosts, demons and other critters who roar, slash, dash, slice, splat and snarl, and at least one of these beasts duke it out with the title character per episode. On the other hand, there is romance, guilt, past betrayals and secrets to be discovered, not to mention sight gags and running jokes.
The visual quality is a step above pocket monsters and moon princesses as well. The show is thankfully devoid of giant sweat-drops, fountain tears and misplaced mouths.
It takes patience to watch the series, with 100+ episodes and long-running character development, it would take a fortune of DVD purchases or steadfast loyalty to the television at 1:00 am (as of this writing)to get the entire story down.
But even so, I highly recommend this show to anybody yearning for more than just flaming mesomorphs and pocket monsters.
