Another amazing adventure from the "Goddess of Manga", Rumiko Takahashi, Inu Yasha is spectacular. Filled with great characters, an involving plot, and superb production values, this series delivers on all cylinders. Watch it and enjoy it.
Inuyasha is a half-demon living during the "warring states" era of Japan. He desires the sacred jewel, also known as the jewel of four souls, because its power could make him a full demon. But his attempt to steal it ends when he is pierced by an enchanted arrow fired by Kikyo, the shrine maiden tasked to guard the stone. Kikyo dies while Inuyasha is left pinned in a coma-like state to a tree by the arrow. Kikyo has the jewel buried with her to prevent any other evil creatures from getting it.
In present day Japan, Kagome, a typical high school girl, lives with her Grandfather on the grounds of a shrine. One day, she drawn into a sealed dry well and finds herself transported back to the warring states era - 50 years after the death of Kikyo. Circumstances lead to her freeing Inuyasha and soon enough the two of them find themselves on a quest to recover the jewel of four souls.
