Show Summary

Kagome Higurashi is a modern day young girl who lives with her family by the old Higure shrine. Unbeknownst to Kagome, she is the reincarnation of priestess Kikyo and possesses the "Jewel of Four Souls" (the Shikon jewel). One ill-fated day, Kagome locates an ancient well near her home and is abruptly transported through the well and into a feudal Japan, inhabited by demons. There, she encounters Inuyasha, son of a powerful demon father and a human mother, who is pinned to a tree by an enchanted arrow. Kagome frees Inuyasha from the tree before she learns that all of the demons, including Inuyasha, are after the Shikon jewel in her possession. To prevent the jewel from being stolen, Kagome accidentally shoots it with the enchanted arrow, shattering it into thousands of pieces. The evil Naraku also seeks the jewel for his own reasons. New allies, Kagome and Inuyasha, join forces with Shippo, a small fox-demon, Miroku, a monk, and Sango, the sole surviving demon-hunter, in order to combat Naraku and recover the fragments of the "Jewel of Four Souls". But that's just just the tip of the iceberg. 1st Opening Song: "Change the World" by V6 (Episodes 1 to 34) 2nd Opening Song: "I Am" by hitomi (episodes 35 to 64) 3rd Opening Song: "Owarinai Yume" by Aikawa Nanase (Episodes 65 to 95) 4th Opening Song: "Grip!" by Every Little Thing(Episodes 96 to 127) 5th Opening Song: "One Day, One Dream" by Tackey & Tsubasa(Episodes 128 to 153) 6th Opening Song: "Angelus" by Hitomi Shimatani (Episode 154 to 167) 1st Ending Song: "My Will" by dream(Episodes 1 to 20 and 167) 2nd Ending Song: "Fukai Mori" by Do as Infinity(Episodes 21 to 41) 3rd Ending Song: "Dearest" by Ayumi Hamasaki (Episodes 42 to 60) 4th Ending Song: "Every Heart, Minna no Kimochi" by BoA (Episodes 61 to 85) 5th Ending Song: "Shinjitsu no Uta" by Do as Infinity(Episodes 86 to 108) 6th Ending Song:"Itazurana Kiss" by Day after Tomorrow (Episodes 109 to 127) 7th Ending Song: "Come" by Namie Amuro (Episodes 128 to 147) 8th Ending Song: "Brand-New World" by V6 (Episodes 149 to 166) Character Profiles: - Spoilers!!! Inuyasha - Half-human, half-demon, Inuyasha desires the Shikon jewel for his own questionable purposes. Too bad Kagome can control him with magic! Kagome - Kagome is a modern-day 15-year-old girl who lives with her family by the old Higure shrine. She is also the unknowing possessor of a magical jewel. Shippo - Shippo is a young fox-demon with shape-shifting abilities. He likes Inuyasha and is fiercely loyal to Kagome. Sango - Sango the demon hunter lost her whole village to Naraku's forces. Her preferred weapon is a giant boomerang. Sesshomaru - Sesshomaru is Inuyasha's older, pure-demon brother. He seeks the magic sword that his father gave to Inuyasha. Miroku - A Buddhist monk who, because of a curse from Naraku, has a Wind Tunnel (it's like a black hole) in his right hand. He is also quite the pervert. Naraku - Naraku is the villain of the series. His name translates as the word, "hell". He was born through the thief Onigumo's desire for Kikyo when he called dozens of demons in to devour himself. He has the ablilty to change his form into anything he wants, which he did to trick Inuyasha and Kikyo into hating each other. He has used Inuyasha's brother Sesshomaru to try and get rid of Inuyasha, but to no avail. He also has an 'army' of bug-type creatures, called Saimyosho. Naraku is also a half-demon like Inuyasha, but born in a different way. Naraku can choose the time of month to return to his 'original' form. He uses this time to re-arrange his body into a stronger and more powerful form. Naraku also gains the ablilty to make offspring, later. Koga - Koga is the son of a leader of the wolf demon tribe. He has 2 Shikon jewel shards in his legs (one in each) which gives him super speed. He first comes into the story when he attacks the village where Rin lived. He also says that he is in love with Kagome, which makes Inuyasha quite annoyed. Koga wants Naraku dead because he created Kagura who killed many of his friends from his tribe.moreless

    • Fan Girl

      I agree with many others at saying, THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST EPIC ANIMA/MANGAS EVER!!!
    • You will want more.

      I just finished the series and I'm proud to say i did shed a couple tears. It''s such an amazing series and as you begin to watch only the first few episodes you will be sucked in. I managed to watch all of it within a week and half. It's romantic and humorous but still gives you the frustration that's craved. I loved it so much words can not explain.
    • One of the Best Anime Around

      I love this anime. The only reason I no longer watch it on Adult Swim is because I am unable to stay up long enough to watch it and I drink an entire pot of coffee on Saturdays. The animation is superb, it has a great story of love, reincarnation, magic, and fantasy. The villain is almost pure evil, yet also complex and tragic. Character development is done very well. Fight sequences are awesome, especially once Inuyasha unlocks a new power for Tetsuiga.

    • Watched it in Arabic Once!

      I'm a Private Personal Trainer and I was at my clients house and we worked out to season 5. I was not a fan at all! Just not for me.
    • Inuyasha had many emotions,turing points we ppl should bring the half demon back even Inuyasha needs saving!

      InuYasha, sounds strange, but if you like romance with a truck load of action you have it. The first time I came across it was 3 am, and my first thought was "what the hell is that girl doing riding a huge cat thing?" Turns out that "cat thing" was Kirara, and that girl was Kagome.

      When you first watch it you might really dislike InuYasha for his anger but for a half demon with a broken f-ed up past he calms down fairly quickly and learns to love again.

      As for the perverted monk and the demon slayer they are a match made just for one another. Although the monk seems like a complete jerk-off perv, he isn't as bad as he seems and really does care for the girl he loves.

      Shippo is also a nice touch, a little brother to all of them and has a huge place in their hearts.

      Danger corners them many times but hey somehow they find a way to escape!

      It's worth watching because it isn't something you see everytime you watch an anime, there are MANY scenes that will catch you off guard.

      If you are a fan of Ranma 1/2 or vice versa you will enjoy it!
