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.

This manga is great for a shounen, I usually dislike them, but this is going in my favorites. I'm not going to post why because I don't want to spoil anything, but this manga is a great read.

This was one of my favorite animes and when i read the manga i loed it even more. My only request is that Kagome sould have gotten some more love. She did alot for him. The least he could've done was gave a heartfelt confession and a make out session or something Lol

the manga was pretty nice, good story. Though i wanted it to end, but this ending was prettu disappointing. I find that they rush it a little. Well other than that it was a pretty long worth manga. alot of action, adventure, drama.

Which ever one it is you'll have to decide by reading this manga. I really enjoyed the story though at times it was distracting with the whole love triangle thing. I mean come on ... You do love someone, you don't. Make up your mind. The art was not as good as I have seen but it was pleasing to the eye.

This manga has a special place in my heart, and always will. It's a very good manga, a bit too long and i didn't like the ending, but apart from that, it's enjoyable.
The plot is simple and easy to follow, the main characters have depth and entertaining personallitys, and over time you really get attached to them. The art is very nice too, Takahashi's style is never boring. The action is amanzing, the battles don't drag on and on, linke im many other shounen series, and Takahashi just draws the best blood.

I love this my manga with all my heart, I don't think about it as a masterpiece, but it's definetly one of the better series in the shounen genre, with great action, a nice plot and very loveable characters. Definetly worth reading.

This Manga was introduced to me, in the form of the anime, which was good. However even i was in the vain of it being way to long. Then while starting reading it 5 days or so, i felt ok, yeah, this is the great series i remembered, detail to detail. Finding that it was long, i was ready to read a long series. I have read all 600+ Detective Conan, and other Manga with great length.
Now let me explain why a great series is defined by it's length, well... more or less what defines it.

I'm of the opinion that if something is good, then it might as well be long, no matter how repetitive it is, simply because good characters can't be spoiled by repetition, just the storyline, if anything it enhances the Characters and dampens the storyline.

What i thought of Inuyasha, Continuing of earlier, Inuyasha Ringed in my ears (Even if i didn't hear any voices) when I thought of reading manga. I read past the anime plot line, and found new ground, loving every minute, every once in a while being frustrated at the side stories, but was never tired, i finished it today, with a thought nothing, because i loved it, i couldn't grasp how much i loved the last words, and the last page, the true feelings of the characters towards the Shikon no Tama, i was braced and after much effort i finished this manga, and my rating is all over this comment, any people who have a problem, then rational thought is not with you because if you liked something, regardless, it should be no lower than a 8, and Inuyasha definitely deserves a perfect score, 10 A Legendary Manga.

ok Inuyasha is long granted and without reading the final chapter we all already knew the ending anyway. it's the story that's catching (and the fact that takahashi sensei seems to have the habit of finishing one substory mid-volume all the time so it's a neverending circle of reading inuyasha!!!!).

another note to make is the one of the group scanlating Inuyasha (Ear Tweak) lol the translation... calling Miroku's charmed papers "sticky notepads of death" and many other silly things (I get what they are trying to say but it's funny and refreshing) I'm not sure if takahashi sensei really used those terms in her manga lol.

I love InuYasha I really do but I don't think it deserves higher then an 8.
Why? Simple, like most manga it had a wonderful beginning a good plot and good characters which brought it to a full 10 but this story got prolong for too long just to kill one single character.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
So the story starts out go Kagome and InuYasha in hunt for the jewel shards nothing bad then Kikyo comes in and then begains the constant betrayal of Inuyasha [really did piss me off]. Because of one of his betrayals to look for Kikiyo, Kagome almost gets permanently destroy by mentally and souly means by Kagura and that creepy baby. When she finally die because of Naraku's poison I was so happy I don't hate Kikiyo but I don't like her that much.
Shippo, Miroku and Sango make a good addition to this group contributing to the destruction of Naraku. As well as Sesshomaru but I think they work to hard on him to make him look... I am not sure what they were trying to do but they work too much on his character when he was just fine as he was. I love his reaction when Rin dies because of his obsession on becoming stronger and learning the truth of his sword.[sorry off topic]
I don't mind that they took so long to kill Naraku no it was the fact most of the most of their adventures got repeated to a point where I already knew whats going to happen. How they constantly tried to make tessaiga [spelling] stronger and stronger to match up with Naraku and an amazing that Naraku couldn't deal with them. He had most of the shards hell he had about 99 percent of the shards.

What really ruin it was the ending come on yes Kagome and InuYasha finally got together after 557 chapters [Miroku and Sango too men 3kids they work fast O.o] but no freaking kiss. No Kikiyo and InuYasha kiss but what about freaking Kagome she stood by him and she got no freaking kiss. The hell so thats about it.

I give InuYasha an 8 it would have been a 7.5 but lets just give it a 8
