Overview

Rumiko Takahashi's Epic! Now Unflipped!

Reads R to L (Japanese Style), for audiences rated teen plus.

Kagome is an ordinary modern schoolgirl living an ordinary life. Who would have thought the dried-up old well on the site of her family's shrine would be a gateway to Japan's ancient past? Drawn through the gate against her will, Kagome finds herself battling demons for control of what she thought was a worthless trinket but is actually a powerful magical gem, the Shikon Jewel! Together with an unlikely ally, the half demon Inuyasha, Kagome begins a quest to recover the shards of the Shikon Jewel and learn more about her link to the past.

Shifting Alliances

Naraku steals the sacred stone of the “living mountain” demon Gakusanjin. Then, thieves have their eye on the gift Gakusanjin gives Inuyasha to help him and his friends retrieve the stone! Old and new enemies—all a manifestation of Naraku or each other—rear their ugly heads: Hakudoshi, Moryomaru, Goryomaru, Kagura, Kanna, and the Infant who houses Naraku’s heart. Now they’re not only attacking our friends, but each other... Who will come out on top?! And how will the changes in allegiances affect our heroes? On the personal front, Inuyasha travels to the future and meets Kagome’s classmates, Shippo pulls malicious pranks on his friends, and Sango is wildly jealous when Miroku visits—his fiancée?!

Meet the Author

The spotlight on Rumiko Takahashi's career began in 1978 when she won an honorable mention in Shogakukan's annual New Comic Artist Contest for Those Selfish Aliens. Later that same year, her boy-meets-alien comedy series, Urusei Yatsura, was serialized in Weekly Shonen Sunday. This phenomenally successful manga series was adapted into anime format and spawned a TV series and half a dozen theatrical-release movies, all incredibly popular in their own right. Takahashi followed up the success of her debut series with one blockbuster hit after another—Maison Ikkoku ran from 1980 to 1987, Ranma 1/2 from 1987 to 1996, and Inuyasha from 1996 to 2008. Other notable works include Mermaid Saga, Rumic Theater, and One-Pound Gospel.

    Three words: Best Manga EVER!!

    This has to be the most awesome series I have ever read, and that is saying something!! Just read 2, and if you aren't hooked, then there's probably something wrong with you. The characters are realistic, it's got comedy, romance (but not so much it's turned all lovey dovey), and action! READ IT TODAY!!

    Why InuYasha is the Best

    1) InuYasha is sooooo cute. 2) This series is the best. I can't wait for the other books to come out. 3) I love the show on Cartoon Network(P.S. it comes on at 12:00 or midnight). 4) The love triangle between InuYasha/Kagome/Kikyo really makes you think about the depth of their character. 5) If you have only seen the shows you sould also read the books because you can really understand the story because you can read it over and over, besides it's worth the money.

    Inu-Yasha is the best that Rumiko Takahashi ever made!

    Inu-Yasha is one of the best anime series that ever happened! Inu-Yasha's plot line is so intense. A love story mixed with an action packed adventure. I like it because you don't know whether Inu-Yasha is a good guy or a bad guy because he wants to become a full demon with the Shikon Jewel, but yet he protects Kagome, and I personally think he is in love with her. But the REAL question is: Will Inu-Yasha become a full demon once he and Kagome collect all the Shikon Jewel Shards? Or will he become a full human because(Isn't it obvious) he's in love with Kagome? We'll just have to wait and see!! P.S.Inu-Yasha comes on at 12:30 a.m. on Cartoon Network, Monday thru Thursday!!

    Inu-Yasha is a great book not only for its great charecters and amazing fantasy adventure it also contains some very interesting history about Japanese religion, culture and of famose Warlords (like Oda Noubonga) its a great series I highly recomend it for all anime fans
