This story is about this modern Japanese girl, Kagome, that was pulled from her own time and went to feudal Japan. But hes the awesome kind of bad boy with humor and with a touch of dumbness at the same time. And as the story progresses, he became this kind of awesome person without losing his bad boy image ofcourse. And when it comes to Kagome, he sure is kind of protective and I love their usual bantering. Behind the bad boy image is the guy who lost his first love and when she returned, hes torn between her and Kagome. But after reading the manga, I still dont like her, but she is kind of likeable now especially when she saved Kohaku. She started as a helpless girl until they found out about her being the reincarnation of Kikyou which was Inuyashas first love and the strongest Miko in the feudal Japan. Kikyou may be the first woman Inuyasha loved, but it is Kagome who really changed Inuyasha as a person. Also, even how many times she got hurt because shes Inuyashas first love, her heart remains pure. Inuyasha and Kagome fell in love with each other and Miroku, Sango with each other too. Inuyasha has this bad boy image, but Sesshoumaru is on the highest level. I specifically hated how he keeps on stealing their Fathers memento, Tessaiga, that is originally given to I But everything changed when he met Rin, and then we got to find out about Tenseiga and everything about it. 2. Well, obviously, its Rin. I love her character simply because shes the reason why Sesshoumaru became compassionate, which is also the reason how he was now able to use his healing sword T And I love her teasing with Jaken. Hes the third party between Inuyasha and Kagome and I cant really stop laughing whenever I remember the scene where he boldly said that he loves Kagome and hes determine to make her his woman. Well, after what Kagome went through because of Kikyou, I cant help but send Inuyasha a dirty sign. Hes some sort of the guy who knows it all, well, not totally all but mostly about Inuyasha and his father. I wish this series was able to show something about the past especially about Inuyashas father and mother. For an adventure stories, the idea of different set of individuals forming a group while traveling is quite cliche too, let alone falling in love with each other! I love that each characters has their own background covered, so we all got the chance to really know more about them and where they come from. I love that each characters have the chance to stand out and weve got to see how they matured with each chapters. As the title goes, without watching the anime, I really thought this series would only revolves around Inuyasha, well, it kind of does since each characters have a connection with Inuyasha. Weve got the chance to see the weaker side of him, the annoying one, the part where others from the group became the hero and saved him, and ofcourse the funny and dense Inuyasha which is my favorite. As I said, this series has a total of 559 chapters so it will absolutely take us a lot of time if I talk about the adventures the group encountered one by one. Before I decided to read this manga, I have a lot of favorite scenes from the anime, mostly? Well, all of them were from Kagome and Inuyasha. But after reading the manga, I have to say that my favorite scenes were from Sesshoumaru (Inuyashas youkai brother). I mean, its been 50 years after that the story resumed but Sesshoumaru look as fabulous as ever and so is Inuyasha. Also, about crossing time through the well, in its first few chapters, weve got to find out that its the Shikon Jewel that connects the two worlds, but I remembered after Naraku seized all the shards of the Jewel, Kagome was still able to go back to her world. Sango and Miroku had their three little angels, how come Inuyasha and Kagome didnt have atleast 1 son or daughter?! So if youre planning to read the manga, I would highly recommend watching the anime too.
Some of the arcs, though I can't remember them off the top of my head, were also pretty great. (Obviously, if I can't remember them, and I read this entire series only a few months ago.) All remaining arcs, aside from battle arcs, were pretty much character arcs- which, I admit, did involve some character development. I admired Koga's character- he was my favorite out of Kagome's "love interests" though she didn't like him like that at all- for a lot of reasons. I loved Kagome too, though I wish she listened to her friends and didn't put up with InuYasha's shit- I mean, by the end, she learns not to and he actually becomes sort of a decent person, for a half-demon at least. Overall, the storyline is typically all over the place, because of the arcs, and the main characters are somewhat decent, but I can sum it up to this: Girl goes back in time, fucks up, and due to her own moral obligation/powers granted by reincarnation, stays in the past to try and fix things. Girl is pretty much going to fall in love with male protagonist.
When it turns out the that demon was created by the mentor to give Inu Yasha some experiential learning, the gang head off to more adventures.
What first drew me to this series was the romantic historical aspect.
Later that year, Rumiko attempted her first full-length series, Urusei Yatsura. Though it had a rocky start due to publishing difficulties, Urusei Yatsura would become one of the most beloved anime and manga comedies in Japan. She concluded both series in 1987, with Urusei Yatsura ending at 34 volumes, and Maison Ikkoku being 15. In 1984, after the end of Urusei Yatsura and Maison Ikkoku, Takahashi took a different approach to storytelling and began the dark, macabre Mermaid Saga. The last story to be drawn was published in 2001, however just recently she wrote one final chapter concluding the series Later in 1987, Takahashi began her third major series, Ranma . During the later half of the 1990s, Rumiko Takahashi continued with short stories and her installments of Mermaid Saga and One-Pound Gospel until beginning her fourth major work, InuYasha.
