Description
Kagome is a modern Japanese high-school girl. Never the type to believe in myths and legends, her world view dramatically changes when, one day, she's pulled out of her own time and into another! There, in Japan's ancient past, Kagome discovers more than a few of those dusty old legends are true, and that her destiny is linked to one legendary creature in particular--the dog-like half-demon called Inuyasha! That same trick of fate also ties them both to the Shikon Jewel, or "Jewel of Four Souls." But demons beware...the smallest shard of the Shikon Jewel can give the user unimaginable power.

Won the 47th Shogakukan Manga Award in the Shounen category.

I don't know why people call the manga 'ugly'. ôo Of course the drawings are way different from other mangas, but that's just Takahashis style and I really like it, BECAUSE it is different. It's only my opinion, though. ^^ The characters have a good depth (this goes especially for Inuyasha), but I also like the ones from Ranma 1/2 and Kyokai no Rinne (although this story is not as much interesting as Inuyasha and I have to admit that some of the characters are still lacking something). I also think there are a lot of other animes, which look even better than the mangas (like One Piece or Fairy Tail), so this doesn't only go for Takahashis mangas. Well, at least it depends on the taste wether you like the drawings or not - I, for example, can't stand the way some shôjo mangas are drawn - but somehow you can say that the art itself has to be related to the genre and the story. That's how I deal with it. Just imagine Inuyasha, One Piece or Fairy Tail drawn in a shôjo-way or the other way around! It gives me the creeps! :'D So if you're not to aversed by the drawings I can only recommend to read this manga. b(^.~)d Although it will take a looong time since there are 56 volumes, it's real fun to follow the story with all the up and downs. smile

It's great if you started and kept at it. I finished and agree with many that this was one of the very few manga where the anime actually turned out better, way better than the manga itself.

It is one of my favorites, but after the few hundred chapters go by, it gets too repetitive, like the story has too many "mini quests" along the way that give small clues about the real problem, which would be Naraku. I feel like the series could have been condensed a bit because it just got so boringly repetitive. But overall, it is a good read that i would recommend.

It started out good, but it gets repetitive eventually and stays like that for 200 CHAPTERS!
It's basically
Find a jewel shard inside demon
Fight demon
Encounters Naraku
Fights and Naraku escapes
Inuyasha's sword is upgraded x times
Rinse and Repeat

I really liked the early volumes of Inuyasha. Imo, they got it all: the characters, the romance, the action, the suspense, etc...Then it got redundant with Inuyasha and his friends killing demons and such. I personally think those fights served no purpose. It became better again with Mt.Hakurei arc only to continue with useless fights later. I also feel that the last volumes were kinda rushed. Overall, the quality of this series did fluctuate to a noticeable degree.

However, I love the characterizations. I think they're realistic and deep and we can actually relate to the characters. Imho, Rumiko Takahashi did a mighty fine job in handling the whole love triangle and reincarnation things. I, unlike some people, am satisfied with the ending.

I'd give Inuyasha a higher score if it wasn't for those redundant parts. I think I'm quite generous to give it an 8 though.

Inu yasha will always have a special place in my heart. It was the first manga I saw and read and also what made me so in love with mangas. Maybe if I hadnt seen it, i could have been one of tjis persons who talk bad about mangas without knowing about it for real ( i doubt it though). I get really angry with those type of people.
But if you want to decide whether to read or watch it... ( watch out! Now a little spoiler) I particulary love the anime a lot. When I read it I was really angry with how they did not kiss even once sad
But it is still really funny and cute so I suggest it!

Spoiler (highlight to view)
When I started reading this series, I LOVED everything about it. The characters, the concept, the settings. Each character is interesting and memorable (except Sango. She's just plain annoying in my opinion). I especially love the designs of the characters' outfits. They are so pretty!

Let's talk about the ending shall we. Well, the words 'crappy' and 'unsatisfying' pretty much describe it. Seriously, one MAJOR thing that annoys me is that Inuyasha and Kagome have never kissed in the manga (I don't know about the anime). I mean, what is up with that? Their romance is supposed to play an important part, yet all they do is hug. I know 'physical actions' isn't all there is to love, but still, fans want to see the hero and heroine share at least one goddamn kiss. I was actually expecting a major emotional scene when Kagome finally returns to the Sengoku era, but damn it, it was so lame.

The ending also doesn't tell us what happens to the other semi-important minor characters, such as Kouga. He disappears pretty much right after he obtains the badass weapon (which I forgot the name of). What the hell. I was so sure that he would show up for the final showdown with Naraku, but he doesn't. Another disappointment for me.

Anyway, sorry for the long rant. I just wish I didn't read the ending. I wish I just stopped right after Naraku's death. I would've rated this series 10/10 if I just stopped there. I had such high hopes for the ending, but oh well.

I fall for this one when I watched the anime,
but I was so shock when I got the Manga,
well, I dont like the drawing, and dunno why I cant into the story while read it..
but Inuyasha Anime version is still one of my favorite.
The anime version was so great and I think MUCH better than the Manga.
Sunrise is really somethig for being able to bring this Manga into a Great anime!
