Barnes & Noble
When unassuming 15-year-old Kagome Higurashi is pulled down a well by a centipede demon, she finds herself transported from the present day back to Japan's ancient warring past, an era of bloodshed as much as of mythic creatures and magic spells. Such is the basic setup for Rumiko Takahashi's Inu Yasha, the animated series that found its way to the States in 2002 and 2003 via Cartoon Network. Like other works by Takahashi, such as Mermaid's Scar and Ranma 1/2, an initially simple premise leads to a complicated scenario rich in characterization. After arriving in the past, Kagome frees a half-human, half-canine demon named Inu Yasha from a 50-year spell that has imprisoned him to a tree. So far, so good. But it turns out that Kagome is the reincarnation of the priestess meant to slay him, a situation that renders their new relationship quite rocky. Nevertheless, the pair form a truce and begin a quest to recover the Jewel of the Four Souls, a powerful item that everyone wants to get their hands on: Inu Yasha wants the jewel to become a full demon. Kagome, partially responsible for shattering the jewel, wants to set everything right again. Together they'll have to face innumerable other demons and schemers intent on garnering the jewel's power for their own. A unique work of historical fantasy laced with elements of horror and romance, Inu Yasha is sure to please anime fans looking for a journey far off the beaten path. The fifth DVD in the series features episodes 13-15: "The Mystery of the New Moon and the Black-Haired Inu Yasha," "Kikyo's Stolen Ashes," and "Return of the Tragic Priestess, Kikyo." Volk Lindsay
