Hello anime loving boys and girls! If you love anime classics Inuyasha will definitely quench your thirst! A feudal fairytale about a young middle school girl name Kagome Higurashi falls down a well enclosed by a shrine owned by her family on her 15th birthday, Through the well Kagome travels 500 years into the past where she finds out she is the reincarnation of a famous priestess named Kikyo, and meets a young half demon boy by the name of Inuyasha. Together, both Inuyasha and Kagome embark on a journey to find the shards of the sacred Shikon jewel which Kagome accidentally shattered. Along the way they make many new friends and not to mention many enemies. Many characters develop romantic interests As well. This anime in my opinion is superb! especially if you enjoy phenomenal characters and a detailed plot line. Inuyasha is my absolute, number one, favourite anime of all time. In my opinion, nothing can top this anime! However, because the anime is a little old the artwork may seem a little dated but the story quality of Inuyasha is timeless. Every single detail that you read or watch in Inuyasha has a significant purpose, which makes this anime very intriguing. The creator of inuyasha; Rumiko Takahashi does an amazing job bringing each character to life. Each detail about each character is well thought out and excellently executed. Some of the main themes in Inuyasha include Love, Friendship and Deceit. By the end of Inuyasha you will be in tears. This is the anime to read/watch. Personally I’ve watched/ read this anime over 10 times and I have never been bored. If I were to rate this anime I would give it a 100/10! 

I think that if you haven't read this yet, you really should. It is a very good series even if the plot is a bit repetitive.

This is the first volume in the great series by Rumiko Takahashi, of Ranma 1/2. In this first volume, we meet our two main characters Kagome, the modern Japanese school girl who travels to the Sengoku Era (Warring States) period of Japanese history. There she frees Inu Yasha, a half demon that was trapped in a tree.

And so begins the saga as Kagome and Inu Yasha travel together to try and retrieve the pieces of the Shikon Jewel Shard before the evil demon Naraku does? And what's all this stuff about Kagome being the reincarnation of Inu Yasha's former love?

This manga is part romance, part gag and part action. A big part action. It is also a fun, engrossing read.

I have the Vizbig editions of the Inuyasha manga and I can tell you Inuyasha still trills. It's cleverly put together.

This story is basically this. A girl gets pulled into a magic well and shortly meet a half dog demon (Demon's just a title word for the series, the really idea/term/word is yokai, supernatural beings.) Who has been pinned to a tree by his his ex- I a mean pristess... (Whoa almost gave away a spoiler their... "wink")

Why she pinned there is for you to unveal... Anyway Dog-Demon gets thanks to the girl and they eventually set off to find pieces of a tresure she broke...

This def sounds small but I don't wanna give to much away if the series captures you. It is a great series manga or anime and worth the time.

Don't Inuyasha's bark scare you he's really a nice guy underneath all that. The later chem with him and Kagome in the series is wonderful to behold. It's sweet and not mushy like you in other fiction.
