    Great Decision

    I really liked this idea to combine three volumes of the Inuyasha manga into one edition. There are many reasons why this was a good choice. The first would be because they made the book a bit larger which means the art is larger and clearer. The second would be the value of getting three volumes in one. And the third reason is that the original first three volumes were flipped to American (Western) style reading which means that one of the characters was no longer correct because of mirroring. This version has put it back to the original Japanese style correcting the aforementioned issue! Also, as an added bonus, there is a bonus art gallery at the end with the original full color cover art from the first three volumes. I also enjoyed how heavy it is and that the paper is much better quality than the individual manga volumes were printed on. All in all this is a must have for a true Inuyasha fan!

    Great for everyone!

    Well, this series is fairly popular anyway, so I won't go into the story... but the actual format is great! It's a good bargain for the collector, and you can finally read it in the original unflipped order, too.

    My first love!! This was the series that started my fascination

    My first love!!
    This was the series that started my fascination with manga.
    Originally I watched the anime and once I reached the point where it ended (before they animated The Final Act) I wanted more. So I started from the beginning in the manga.
    I knew it was love when I came to the page where Kagome finds Inuyasha pinned to the Goshinboku tree, covered and in vines and leaves, almost fairytale like. Some 500 plus chapters later the series ends and I was deeply saddened, even though it was ridiculously long.
    I'm attracted to the whole premise of the story, searching for shards, personal growth, time travel, traversing through a feudal pre-modern Japan with mythical creatures.
    There's some reasoning to why the antagonists are the way they are, with Naraku being driven to obtain the Shikon no Tama because of love. Well more like unrequited love. And for some reason I'm drawn to travels by foot, and resting at night by the light of the moon and the warmth of a fire. It's sort of romantic and at a subconscious level I guess part of me despises living in fast paced modern world like Kagome is from. Which would explain why I secretly enjoy it when the power goes out, but only for a few hours. Not for weeks on end or when you are in the shower with shampoo foaming in your hair. Oh and the fables! This series had me checking out a few books from the library on Japanese folklores and myths. Had me dreaming of dog demons, kitsunes and deities living in shrines hidden amongst green misty mountains. I think Takahashi very nicely incorporated that theme into her manga. She, however, could have left out some unneeded slapstick, lecherousness from Miroku, and characters that didn't bring much to the plot then were never seen past a few chapters.
    Never the less it was a wonderful journey. And if I ever stumble across an old dried up well...I just might jump.

    Inu-Yasha Rocks! Though Viz... Not so much...

    Ok, everyone knows that Inu-Yasha is one of the best mangas around, right? Yes, we can all agree on that. To sum up that little note: Inu-Yasha is the best damn hanyou around!!!<BR/>Now, on another note, it IS disappionting of what Viz has done to Inu-Yasha... From the translations to the english dubs on TV. I am an Inu-Yasha fanatic, though, sadly I can't read kanji, so I can't exactly read the original version, which I much rather prefer... As another user said, the english volumes are terribly lacking in information. Yes, one or two volumes taken out WOULD have been acceptable... Though four or MORE is just very confusing sometimes... Maybe someday there'll be a better translation, though for now, we must settle with this.

    Disappointed With Viz

    I absolutely adore Inu-Yasha: the art, story, and character development is phenomenal. However, I am most upset with Viz and its translators. They have chopped out large chunks of the story leaving us with only half -or less- of the Shichinin story arc. It is a great story, but reading what is offiicially put out is a waste of time. I do not like the idea of having to read it online, but to get the whole story (and a more interesting translation) it would be best to look into it. People should read this, but the American version is terribly lacking. My love to the artist, for her story-telling skills are remarable. At least Ranma 1/2 is only missing two volumes rather than four.

    InuYasha: A sure favorite of readers!

    This series is one of my favorites. It has great artwork and a killer storyline! It has many thing other mangas tend to leave out and is a very absorbing one to read. If you read one, you'll get hooked. I flipped through one, and now I own volumes 1-11 and I'm still adding on to my collection! ^_^

    Wonderful show...but not the greatest

    This is definently a wonder. Somehow every genre got smashed into 1 series. It's different, exciting and really makes you think. Now, on to the bad points. The characterization leaves something to be desired. You don't really understand their past and it's rare that they put much focus on it. I find myself thinking about it all the time not because I like it so much, but because I have so many questions that are never answered. However, it definently is worth the money.

    Awesome Book

    I never did like anime but I saw this book on the shelf and thought I would give it a try. Well I fell in love with the book and have volumes 1-10. You'll never ever put this book down, you'll always be reading it.
