Overview

Rumiko Takahashi's manga epic in its original format!; Historical action and romance from one of Japan's most beloved creators!

Reads R to L (Japanese Style) T+ audience.

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.

Dueling Emotions Kagome’s friends each face difficult challenges as Naraku intensifies his efforts to gain complete control of the shards of the Shikon Jewel. Kohaku struggles to free himself from Naraku’s grip, but doing so means facing up to the terrible deeds of his past. Then, while Inuyasha battles one enemy after another in his search to gain mastery over the heirloom blade Tetsusaiga, Kagome confronts Tsubaki, yet another pawn of Naraku’s and one that may poison her soul. And even Naraku’s servants scheme against him when Kagura tries to bring Koga into an attempt to free herself from Naraku’s control. The coming of the new moon risks exposing Inuyasha’s secret—how much has Kagura seen?

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.

    My Favorite

    Inuyasha is my favorite book and Rumiko Takihashi is my favorite author. Inuyasha is about this girl named Kagome that goes though this well to the past or something like that and team up with this half demon named Inuyasha to collect the Shikon Jewel Shards before theire enemey Naraku gets the because the Jewel could make demons 100 times stronger.

    For an online assignment..but nonetheless...

    Andrea Lawhorn October 16, 2003 English I HONORS Review Novel Review Key: Examples ¿Osuwari¿- Japanese word, un-translated [Sit!]- Translation of Japanese word in quotations For this module, I read the book, Inu-Yasha: A Feudal Fairy Tale, Volume 7, by Rumiko Takahashi. This book, or more accurately, Japanese ¿manga¿ or comic, was a fascinating piece of work. The bulk of this novel was illustrated, as all manga are. To understand that, it would be similar to reading the Sunday funnies: pictures with captions in speech bubbles. This novel was wonderfully illustrated and thought-out, I particularly enjoyed the plot. The plot of the entire series of the Inu-Yasha: A feudal Fairy Tale currently running at twelve volumes, is basically ¿good vs. evil¿, with a little modern magic thrown in. Throughout volume 7, Inu-Yasha, the main character and namesake of the manga, is shown fighting off the demons of ancient Japan to regain the shards of the ¿Shikon no Tama¿, or Jewel of Four souls, a magical bead with enormous power. Inu-Yasha is shown first off fighting with his half-brother, the full-dog-demon, Sessho-maru. Kagome, an eighth grade student from 1997 Tokyo who travels back and forth through time through a magic well, eagerly assists the half-demon Inu-Yasha in battling Sessho-maru. (Kagome is mentioned liberally throughout the series as the ¿reincarnation of the ¿miko¿ [priestess] Kikyo¿.) During the battle with Sessho-maru, the delinquent ¿houshi¿, [Buddhist monk] Miroku is poisoned by the antagonist Naraku¿s ¿Saimyoushou¿ [Hell Wasps]. While Miroku is out for the count, the tiny ¿Kitsune¿ [fox demon] Shippo cheers Inu-Yasha on from the sidelines. Kagome rushes to get some medicine for Miroku, praying that the ¿hanyou¿ [half-demon] Inu-Yasha can last a little bit longer against Sessho-maru. The main reason for Sessho-maru¿s attack is to attain their Father¿s fang-blade, the ¿Tetsusaiga¿ [iron cleaving fang]. During the fight, Inu-Yasha is poisoned by his brother¿s poison claws, and is pretty much kicked around. Sessho-maru eventually grabs the sword, to Inu-Yasha¿s amazement, as in Volume 2, Inu-Yasha severed Sessho-maru¿s right arm with the Tetsusaiga, as full-blood demons cannot touch it. Sessho-maru gained a human arm with a Shikon shard inside through Naraku, who wishes for Inu-Yasha¿s demise. The battle rages on, and the tides slowly turn in Sessho-maru¿s favor, when Kagome fires a purification arrow at the demon, canceling out the Tetsusaiga¿s transformation, and giving Inu-Yasha the upper hand for at least a moment. Kagome continues to fire her arrows, and is almost killed, when Inu-Yasha is thrown bodily at her by Sessho-maru. She is knocked unconscious, and taken out of the battle. Inu-Yasha is very upset by now, and is attacking ruthlessly, yet fruitlessly. Sessho-maru continues to use his poison claws, yet refrains form using the untransformed Tetsusaiga. Shortly, the Tetsusaiga transforms, and Sessho-maru prepares to use its semi-ultimate attack, the ¿kaze no kizu¿ [the wind scar]. Inu-Yasha anticipates the attack, and stops the swing with his arm and fire-rat kimono, holding back Sessho-maru¿s arm. Miroku has Kagome over his shoulder, carrying her and Shippo to a safe place. While running, Kagome wakes up, looks back to the fight, and watches in horror as Sessho-maru plunges his claws through Inu-Yasha¿s back and abdomen. She screams, and tries to go help him, and is held back by the monk. Inu-Yasha ignores the pain, and rips Sessho-maru¿s human arm off, reclaiming the Tetsusaiga. He then collapses into a defensive crouch, the long sword jammed partially into the earth before him. Sessho-maru and his minion, Jaken, leave on a cloud of ¿ki¿ [spiritual energy], leaving the bruised and broken humans, hanyou, and ¿youkai¿ [demon] to escape. That was only a teaser summary of the first main battle out of the two in Volume 7. If you want to read more, I strongl

    Why InuYasha is a must have!

    ^^ Being the manga freak that i am, i go to many various bookstores, and find the manga i am most interested in. At first, it was Fushigi Yuugi, and now its InuYasha:A Feudal Fairy Tale { By the same company VIZ who does Fushigi Yuugi, No Need For Tenchi!, and Gundam Wing..plus many more} InuYasha is about a half-demon, half-human and a 15 year old girl named Kagome. Together, they have to collect the shards of the Shikon No Tama, or jewel of four souls. InuYasha can sometimes be horrific, and scary...^^ but it has its Comedic sides...^^ If you like Comedy, mixed with some horror and a lil' bit of romance..InuYasha is a MUST HAVE!!
